    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.

    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...

    EPP

    When I entered the hobby 5 years ago at the age of 10 my first 4 planes were all made of EPP and were almost indestructible. These planes were amazing and incredibly durable but nowadays i can no longer find any reasonably priced EPP foam! Does anybody else have any idea where to get some...

    Scale Build-Off – RQ-7 Shadow

    Last year before winter set in, I embarked on a project to build the RQ-7 Shadow using foam core. I thought I would share the process... The RQ-7 Shadow is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with a high-wing, constant chord pusher configuration with a twin-tail boom empennage and an inverted...

    Looking for an FPV ship - and eventually long range FPV

    I'd like to get into FPV fixed wing. I've flown LOS planes-a-plenty and FPV multicopters for a little while but I'd really like to get something FPV that can be up in the air for more than 5 minutes at a time. I've been looking into either a delta flying wing or something purpose built like the...
