    Feedback Request! Failed Test flight.

    Hello! I have a team at school that competes in an aero design competition every year. This year our aircraft had some trouble as once it was off the ground it yawed hard and crashed. I would love any feedback as to why the plane reacted as it did. If you have any questions please let me know...

    Professional heli pilot vs pro fixed-wing pilot: Versacopter & FT Arrow.

    I would love to see an episode of FT wherein they set up a competition between a professional, full-scale helicopter pilot and a professional fixed-wing pilot. FPV Versacopter vs FT Arrow, neither pilot has any RC experience at all.

    Big Bipe Aerobatics Showdown - 2015 Edition

    Howdy folks. When summer rolls in and the weather gets nice (as it is now) it's the perfect time to hone your flying skills. This also means it's prime time for a contest as the younger members of FT are out of school and nights are long enough to get flights in if you work during the day. This...

    Scratch Build-Off - FPRC F6F Hellcat

    Most of my RC interests these days stem from multirotors, but my early days in the hobby involved planes. I have built and flown numerous foam board planes. Never have I done a detailed scale build. I have wanted to fly an F6F Hellcat for a while now as it is the plane my grandfather flew in...

    Outrageous Aircraft

    Show idea that I would love to see: Competition: Who can make the most outrageous flying machine that successfully flies? Points could be awarded for: Style - Completely subjective, but you Flitetest guys are all about style. You've got this idea nailed. Asymmetry - Our aircraft almost always...

    Building challenge: who can build the fastest Quad

    They would have a build challenge with homemade frame and handpicked parts. They would then put A GPS module and record max horizontal speed and vertical speeds. I guess ideal size would be 200-400? What do you all think?:cool:

    Suggestion: 24 Hour Experimental Build Challenge

    Hi, this might be a little tangential, but I enjoy a lot THAC which is the Twenty-four Hour Animation Contest. The idea is simple: you animate something for 24 hours and post your video online.
