    Is this really a FT Delta?

    Yes, this really is a scratch built FT Delta. (one of my favorite Flite Test designs of all time):cool: At first glance you might not recognize it? Looking closer it might appear to be highly modified? Not really. It is nearly stock with a few minor exceptions. Obviously I added a canopy...

    Ho do you get the CG on a delta wing?

    I am wondering the best way to get the CG on a delta wing or any swept back flying wing? I know how to get the CG on a straight wing, trainer etc. On a straight wing I usually go one third of the cord from the leading edge and that seems to work fine. Would I do the same with a delta wing...

    Delta mixing for Futaba T6EX radio

    I am building a versa wing, and this is the first time I have used the elevon mix with my Futaba T6EX radio. I read the manual and set it up as it says. The elevator throws are correct, however the aileron throws are opposite. I reversed the aileron servos and now the ailerons work like the...

    Elevons and Mixing Help Req- FT Delta

    Hi All, This is my first post here; I'm very, very new to RC and following an airboat that I've built, after finding Flitetest on YouTube, I decided to build the Delta. The build went ok thanks to all the videos and advice on here and I'm happy with it and the powerpod. My problem is...

    First Flight - FT Delta

    I took my delta to a local club that allows park flyers and they let me fly it. The guy whom helped me out test flew it form me, which is what the video is showing, then after helped me adjust the throws. overall a good experience. Here's a pic of my delta as well as a video.

    17" Delta Flying Wing, Using Mostly UM Stryker Internals

    First of all, let me say there wasn't any planning ahead that went into this build... First thing I did was fold the airfoil, and it kinda went straight to improv, meaning hacking away foam with the Xacto knife. Story: I used to own a Parkzone Ultra Micro Stryker... I used to, I crashed it...

    Introducing, the TubeWing! FT Shipped me push rods in a cardboard tube and.......

    So I am fairly new to the hobby but have a ton of fun building these foam planes. I ordered some push rods and other items from FT for my next build and they showed up in a cardboard tube with a 2" ID. As soon as I saw it I couldn't help but want to make it fly. So here's what happened...

    Mini Flite Test Planes

    Recently I have been obsessed with smaller planes and decided to try and make some scaled down FT planes. The smaller ones seem to be a tad bit harder to fly than the bigger ones, and take more tweaking, but it is totally worth it when they are done. Some of the advantages of smaller planes are...

    A few Scratchbuilds that are not my own

    These are my uncle's designs, I am just the happy test pilot. He made chuck gliders out of balsa when i was a kid and since I showed him foamboard rc planes he's come out with a few gems. one is a shuttle that we run on 2 cell, super smooth The canard one is on a 3 cell with a 2200kv motor...

    Warped Foam Fix?

    The trailing edges of both my FT Flyer (elevators) and my FT Delta (elevons) have become too warped to fly. The servos can't move the control surfaces enough anymore. The FT Delta had a coat of Minwax on it but maybe I didn't do it well enough? Both have been flown on dewy, wet mornings. Is...

    FT Delta - winter blast!

    Hi, I have just returned from the local field having maidened the Delta with the 2826/10 1400kv motor from Hobby King. 850mah battery. It really flies great, especially in wind. I also flew the Bixler 2 which was bouncing all over the place. The Delta was much better. Luckily it didn't need any...

    Return to RC with EPP version of Cheap N Easy

    I'm stuck flying my Cheap N Easy foam delta because it refuses to break! I wish I had foamies when I started RC 25 years ago. I would not have quit the hobby due to heart breaking crashes. It wasn't love but I really REALLY liked my Sig Kadet II and picking it up with a dustpan killed RC for...

    Scratchbuilt Wing-

    Ok, after crashing the Funbat enough times that required more props than I now care to count (though the last crash was a selfless act of mercy to spare the untimely demise of a spankin' new P-40) and also having seen the Joshes flying the Swifts, the Sumo, and the Bonzai I have come to...
