    Experimental Arduino RC Plane Build Log

    Hey guys, I'm using this thread as a sort of build log for my next Arduino airplane. I've been working with UAV avionics as a hobbyist, intern, and university researcher for about 2 years now. This will be the first plane, though, that I will lay out exactly how all the systems come together...

    Carbon Fiber wings

    Hey guys, I'm just new around here and I have never actually built a plane before. Today I got to watching some of the videos on the DIY foamies from FT and Experimental Airlines (The Armin wing). I am learning a lot about how models are built, and it doesn't look nearly as intimidating anymore...

    AD-1 Oblique Wing

    You guys should make the AD-1 Oblique Wing NASA experimental plane. I am not sure if it would scale down well, but you could probably freak out your friends ("DUDE U JUST DESTROYED YOUR WING!"), then laugh as it keeps flying. ;) Peter I think this is right up your alley. Feel free to add...
