    Walkera Runner 250 Problems

    I recently bought this racing Quadcopter that was called the Walkera Runner 250. It flew well until I crashed it. It was about 35 feet up and then I dropped all throttle and could not correct it after adding more. It crashed on one side but nothing was apparently broken. Then when I tried...

    Maiden Flight, Epic Crash [Scratch build fail]

    This video of my maiden was pretty catastrophic... as in, wing failure and skydive ;). Enjoy! Notes on plane: it was a bad design in the first place, the wing was very weak, and couldn't withstand its own weight in a dive :P. I had intent on scrapping it, but decided to maiden it first, to get...

    Hi guys. I am fairly new to multi rotors and i could use a bit of help. I built a hovership mhq2 which I learnt to fly on but I have just built a custom frame for aerial photography. The problem I am having is that I have set up everything in cleanflight. All motors and props are correct...

    Goodmorning FT community, Yesterday I took my p-51 out for MY maiden (as i had let the pro's trim it out for me and make sure i built it right), I was incredibly impressed with the characteristics of the plane and to be honest the power package. Coming from...

    eSport 2.0 Update

    Hi! I got up at 5:30 to test fly my new design... remember I wanted it to go fast.(bad idea) Here is the aftermath: On the first flight everything was OK. But it was fast...too fast. So I backed off the throttle and the plane did a high speed stall. :( I brought it down, moved my cg a little...

    Airplane extraction after tree "Landing"

    Parked/Landed my FT Tiny Trainer high up in a pine tree this evening after work. Tromped around in the thicket of vines and smaller trees below breaking rotting limbs off to try and throw at my plane. I hit the plane a few times, but it didn't budge. Got all scraped up in the process. Then...

    Transmitter failure

    So I was out with my friend flying our planes and for some reason about four times after take off while flying low my plane decided to aileron roll the other direction I told it to for a few milliseconds. At the time I just thought it was turbulence as it was quite windy. Anyway, I carried on...

    kinda worked...

    So after my giant fail with the f22 I build, I wanted to take a step back... So I chose the nutball since it's one of the most easy to build and fly planes out there. The build was easy but very frustrating because the shape is round everywhere and I had a hard time making everything perfectly...

    Recovery Parachutes

    There was the episode a while back with the parachute plane, but I would love to see an episode for Heli, Multirotor, and plane pilots on recovery parachute options, for when things go too wrong to catch, and espeically for multis, since they have the glide path of a homesick rock. I know...

    Cold Weather Flying

    It is a good idea (if you want to keep your multirotor in one piece) that you allow your craft to acclimate to the temperature you will be flying in. I typically let mine adjust to the outside temp for an hour. Then recalibrate your control board. Otherwise this could happen to you...

    Newbie needs help

    Hi, I am new to the hobby and live I the UK. Finding foamboard here is hard but I have found something similar but it's really heavy. 250grams for an A0 sheet. This appears to be at least three times heavier than DTF. The couple of planes I have built from flitetest plans, ft flyer and the...

    massive tricopter crash. help me understand why

    Well this is what happened, I got the electrohub tricopter built it and flew it stock on the flip 1.5. Made about 7 flights in the stock configuration and it flew solid. The only complaint I had was that the yaw was slow compared to what I wanted . I went into the multiwiigui and changed the yaw...
