    Pilot Error Rubber Band Strength

    I have had my share of busted props, bent landing gear, lost a horizontal stabilizer, but never a major wipe out. The fuselage stick on the Slow V was very weak and I had to replace that a couple times, but for my regular planes we were pretty uneventful in terms of crashing until recently...

    So this Happened Yesterday - Mid Flite Nose Blender

    Memorial Day, free afternoon, beautiful weather, and a box full of charged batteries. This is going to be great! I pull into a vertical and make it about two hundred feet up, and I hear a WHOMP! One of my wheels on my landing gear goes flying off, and my motor and prop appear to be dangling...

    Horizontal stabilizer falls of in 3d flight - Parkzone Sukhoi 29mm

    Hey Everyone, here is my story and question: I have about 30 flights on my Parkzone Su29mm, and I am now rather consistent at smooth flights. It is actually rather simple to land, and I am just starting to explore some advanced 3D maneuvers. Very fun plane and looks great. Unfortunately last...

    This is incredible

    This is the kind of stuff that warms my heart. Someone going out of their way to help the hobby. If you excuse the incredibly poor language this is a real nice action to save their plane. Enjoy!

    New Builder and Pilot from Colorado

    Hello everyone, I stumbled across the Flite Test YouTube videos and was blown away by the idea of building a flying airplane out of economical foam-core! I immediately went out and bought boards from Hobby Lobby and built a FT Might Mini Arrow. Then this weekend I finally had a chance to...

    Naze32 Cleanflight Crashing Three Minutes Into Flight

    Hi All, Thanks first of all for all you do to get us newbs up in the air! I am building my second quad from scratch this time. I used the mini racing quad power pack for electronics with a Naze32 Acro and a homebrew H frame. I built a tether that supplies 12.6V/30A to an XT60 plugged into the...

    Hey guys, Been lurking the forums for a few days, yall have a great community. Flitetest is one of my favorite youtube channels… often catch myself watching flying toasters and insect-like rubber band planes slowly circle around the room when I should be sleeping. (I also want Josh to drop...

    Can I fix my motor?

    Attached i have two pictures of my damaged motor. It was damaged in a crash where my quadcopter lost power for some reason whilst hovering at about 40m up. Landed on concrete and all the other motors have some scratches but still work. However this one seems to be jammed or something. As you...

    Homemade photography quad crash ...

    Hello, so I'v built and flown a couple of time my s500 quadcopter. It weighs 1.5 KG and hovers around half throttle. I have had a frequent problem of it just losing power suddenly, which is due to the turnigy banana connectors not being wide enough with the two banana connectors attached to the...

    Wouldn't suggest a 75% FT-Flyer

    i recently decided to build a plane with my friend but we didn't have much foam and here in Australia foam board is around $13 per sheet of 900 x 600 and we thought it would be a good idea to build a 50% FT-Flyer, so we printed out the plans and realized that it was extremely small and there was...

    Learning to Fly can be frustrating

    I tried a different approach to Slope Soaring (with some engine assist) and changed my launch position on the hill I fly on. The idea was to keep the plane to the north of me, away from the 'top' of the hill. Unfortunately there be houses over there. The Radian Pro got away from me and tried...

    FT Viggen Crash-Causing Problem

    So I recently put together one of my first speed-build kits from flite test, an FT Viggen. I was super excited to get it in the air using the 70mm edf setup from Grayson hobbies. When I finally got out to a field by my house to fly it, I ended up crashing and wrecking the airframe on takeoff...

    MiniQuad ESC Prop Strikes

    Recently I have been noticing slices in the heat shrink around my ESCs, and it's not just one ESC, all of them seem to have been hit in some way. My ZMR250 has the ESCs mounted on the arms which is great for active cooling, but puts them in danger of prop strikes. I figure the problem is that...

    Waterproofing Quad

    I've been traveling through my country, trying to get awesome shots from landscapes. With it being a tropical country and all, I am bound to get some rain. At first, I thought it would not be a big deal, because I could wait it out or just fly if it was only mist. But yesterday I almost lost my...
