  1. A good day at the field

    A good day at the field

    On takeoff I went right through a large puddle right before I got off the ground. It turns out that water and electronics don't mix since right after the first turn I lost all control and that was that. It's actually fixable though :D

    As Captain Blocker and I were getting Pics of my Panther, I made a fatal error in judging my airspeed and stalled it right into Captain Blocker! Good thing it didn't hit either of us and, if it did, it was going so slow that there wouldn't have been any damage to either the plane or us.

    Oops, crashed into the ocean! (a fjord technically...)

    Got a little crazy last week and crashed into a Norwegian fjord! Fortunately I was testing a new GoPro at the time and ended up with some nice footage! “DHC Turbo Beaver Saltwater Crash and Rescue” Need to build an RC rescue boat I think 🤔 thoughts?

    Crashed on Take-Off...twice!

    I admit it, I am a novice. But I am experienced in building many mechanical and electrical things throughout my years. So, I decided to build the FliteTest Corsair. Build seemed to go fine. But I am experiencing a serious problem on take-off. On my first take-off attempt, the plane got three...

    Hi! I was out of the hobby for like 24 years, but I'm a youtube junkie and routinely fall down aircraft related YT holes and wound up looking up a local club and getting back into it after spending two weeks watching videos and re-acquainting myself with how it's done. Anyway hi! I'm getting...

    I'm not a very experienced RC pilot but I can keep a plane in the air. I have my flown the Ft bloody baron for a couple of month, and I didn't really have any problem with it. But I recently build a Ft Long ez and tried to fly it for the first time today, it went inverted the second I launched...

    New quad, no motors spinning after small crash.

    So I received my new Wizard X220s yesterday, and got the first sets of flights in today. Crashed a few times with no issues besides some mud that was cleaned off while batteries recharged. Unfortunately, after a very minor crash from a 2 foot hover, none of the motors spin now. Everything...

    Finally! The maiden flight/crash has occurred!

    I’ve had my TinyTrainer built now for over a year, but life, weather, and lack of flying space have all conspired to keep me grounded. Today, everything fell into line for my first flight. It was gloriously tragic. I was optimistic and only brought one bag of extra props b/c “the Joshes, Alex...

    Hello All, I've been following Flite Test on Youtube for over a year now. I finally broke down and ordered a Simple Scout and figured I should join the forums.

    Make a rc wing stronger

    Hello, I have recently started in the rc hobby and am in the process of making a wing. The only problem is that when I take the controls of anything that is supposed to go up, it crashes and breaks. Is there any way I could reinforce the wings to decrease the probability of it breaking in a...

    New Guy with Tiny Trainer Flight Issues

    Good Day All, I have been interested in model aviation for over 40 years. As a kid I built models but could not afford the radios and servos so never flew anything I built. This past winter I purchase a Hobby Zone Champ and learned to fly it pretty well. I think decided to build the Tiny...
