    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...

    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...

    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...

    Building an FPV Wing. Need advice and help.

    Hello, everyone! I'll cut straight to the chase... so, I'm building a flying wing type craft that is 4ft (1.2m) of wingspan, with the intent of FPV flying. Estimated all-up weight is about 900-1000 grams (around 2 lbs). Now, what my main question is... where do I start to look for making the...

    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...
