    Help! New project. DLG flying wing

    Hello, guys. I've been looking for a model for flying in the wind for a while. Many have advised me to fly wings like the FT versa wing. But I'm really excited about the idea of building a DLG. I was really worried about the fact that I couldn't find carbon rods here to build the fuselage, so I...

    Prandtl Flying Wing

    I learned recently from @FoamyDM about a NASA test project called PRANDTL-D. He built his own version of the prototype and posted plans here: https://forum.flitetest.com/index.php?threads/prandtl-d-foam-board-wing-by-foamydm.58170/ This morning I began building my own wing from @FoamyDM 's...

    Triplane Flying Wing (Super Secret Skunk Works Project)

    If I'm being totally honest I don't know why I built what I did, but I can certainly say why I've never seen it done before. That's because there is literally no practical reason whatsoever to build this. The best reason I can give for why I built it is that nobody told me not to, and if...

    Help! Help Please

    Can anyone help me with a weird rx motor issue? It's for a flying wing, and i cant get the motor to engage with throttle input from my qx7, but, it will engage in an output test in iNAV. All the control surfaces work with input from the controller. it has me stumped. I am using a omnibus F4 V5...

    Plane FoamyDM - Burgess-Dunne Flying Wing 1.0

    YOU NEED TO BUILD THIS FLYING WING: This project is a Great Flyer, Quick Build and only 2 sheet! This Project was inspired by the '20 Flite Test Forum Challenge (FTFC20). Since I have seen the model on Fidder's green, I thought the Burgess-Dunne Flying wing from 1914 is a perfect candidate for...

    FTFC20 Mara designed by FoamyDM - The Flying Mustache

    This the entry of the MARA designed by FoamyDM The graceful swept curves of this Thermal Soarer are enticing, I am drawn to the unique construction methods employed to build this unique craft. History: The craft was designed in 1999 by Markku Tähkäpää, reknown veteran Finnish modeler. but...

    This is Reserved for my Attempt to build a PRANDTL WIng as featured on an FTCC when they spoke with NASA engineer. The one that flies with *proverse* Yaw I looking into it here: http://www.amaflightschool.org/PRANDTL and https://www.nasa.gov/centers/armstrong/news/FactSheets/FS-106-AFRC.html...

    What power pack could I use for the 900mm teksumo

    Ok I have been looking into flying wings, and I found the arf 900mm teksumo. If at all possible, which FT power pack could I use for it?

    FTFC'18 WWII McDonnell XF-85 Goblin designed by MrFowl (Eli)

    Hi everyone! I've been parusing the forums here for a while now without giving anything back *evil laugh* ...but it's time I finally give back. That said, I've chosen to compete in a challenge that I won't be able to show up at :rolleyes: ...with a plane I might not be able to build. So this...

    New here and... nice flying wing?

    Hi, like you can see i'm new to the forums. It isn't the first time i fly planes but i'm asking for advice. Does anybody know some plans (hot wire) or at least wing profile for making a good slow fpv fliying wing (load: apm, fpv, telemtry, small camera...)? Thanks, waiting for your response.

    Flying wing

    Hey mad builders! Well, had a buddy of mine give me a Long EZ kit he had started. As the fuselage he started (and I didn't notice before sheathing the bottom) was way out of wack and what was left to do is not my cup of tea, I decided to make a flying wing with the foam cores and balsa from the...

    Blade Theory W or FPV Manta

    Both the Blade Theory W and FPV Manta are new FPV race wings. Would like to see a review about these.

    Toaster Plane Inspiration

    Just wondering if it would be possible to modify the switch thing that david rigged up to turn on the toaster so that you could have multiple on-board charged batteries you could switch between to extend flight time? Seems like you could have several battery packs allowing for crazy long flight...

    Single engine push prop Kraken???

    I'm interested in building up a simple slower flying wing for lazy flying and future FPV. I would like to make it single engine to keep the flight time longer and I am thinking the Kraken would be a good platform for this. Has anyone done this or have any insight into making the Kraken a single...

    Hi Josh B iam from Pakistan. country where this hobby only belong to rich people. because in our country there are only 3 to 4 websites who sell RC items. and they are only trying to get as much profit as they can. my salary is not that high which can allow me to get a credit card to buy from...

    NASA's PRANDTL-D Flying Wing - No Vertical Surfaces With No Control Problems

    Albion H. Bowers - Chief Scientist at the NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center https://www.nasa.gov/centers/armstrong/about/biographies/management/bowers.html He discovered that some of the fundamental assumptions made about the best way to design a wing are wrong. He’s been doing flight...

    Optimizing flying wing design

    My question is fairly simple: how does one decide on the ideal dimensions and ratios for a flying wing given the target cruising speed and payload or other relevant flight characteristics. For a more conventional aircraft, I feel like I have a fairly good intuition as far as changing the wing...

    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...
