    Check compatibility of my parts please

    I am building a DIY rc plane out of a foam glider and I want to know if all of these parts will fit together and if my battery is small enough. I want to have a longer flight time but obviously want the plane to fly as well. Let me know what you guys think!

    Does anyone think a Yak-54 would be possible?

    My uncle flew one of these in an airshow performance called the twin tigers. He passed away in 2020 in a plane crah and i want to pay respects to him and his legacy before i follow in his footsteps in a real plane. I know the round fuselage would be difficult for certain reas but I believe it...

    Carl Goldberg Freedom 20 Electric Conversion Help

    Hi all! I've been working on building an old Freedom 20 kit and replacing the power system with electric. I've pretty much finished the build at this point, but forgot one crucial detail: battery retention. This being my first non ARF or BNF fixed wing, I completely neglected to think about how...

    Solved FS-i6 V-Tail mixing

    I'm trying to set up a Durafly Bonanza with my TGY-i6 (identical to the FS-i6, so I'll just call it that) so I turned on the v-tail mixing, but it's backwards, up and down movement controls the rudder and left and right controls the elevators. There is no option to reverse this and I'm flying...

    Mini Arrow Servo Setup Problem

    Hi all, I recently finished building my Mini Arrow (which is the second plane I've ever built) and I'm having trouble setting up the servos. In the build video, Josh connects the servos to the receiver and can control both servos with one channel. I tried doing the same, but I can only control...

    DJI Air unit for plane, use only video?

    Hi! In short: Could i use DJI air unit for only video using only the red and black wire for power? Longer: So my dad got DJI googles and DJI FPV drone, and i was wondering if i could add a DJI Air unit to my regular plane? Looks like the air unit only needs power to send video? And then you...

    Where can I fly in South Australia?

    Where do people fly FPV in South Australia? It wouldn't make sense to fly over private property in case your plane/multirotor went down you don't have to trespass (and for privacy reasons too) so whereabouts do people fly here? I'm talking mostly about fixed wing, local ovals are nice and all...

    Drone parts on fixed wing

    Just wanted some ideas about using drone parts on a fixed wing. Have some old parts that could be used and I’m sure others have done the same. First just starting with a PDB and an ESC without BEC. And then maybe also adding a betaflight f3 board. What are others experience on the matter...

    Bixler motor broken. New motor suggestions?

    Hi everyone. My bixler 1.1 killed a ESC a few months ago, it was a mystrey (blueseries) 40A. I thought It died because of lack of airflow in the fuselage. Today I finally got around to putting another ESC in it, I replaced it with a blueseries 30A, but this time mounted it ontop of the wing...
