    Design-Build-Fly Prototype Scratch Build

We started last Friday and...

    Vultee XP-54 Swoose Goose

    I ran across a video of the Swoose Goose a few months ago and thought “Hey, that would make a cool FT build.” Then I thought “You haven’t built an FT plane in years, and you have never made plans for one.” I was learning to design parts in onshape so I told myself “Take a hike, we’re doing this...

    Foamboard 120cm wingspan 64mm EDF plane

    I've lurked around these forums long enough. Time to share my latest project: an easy-to-fly foamboard jet built around a 3900kV (3S) 64mm FMS EDF unit. Wingspan is 120cm; AUW (with 3S 3000mAh) is 1150g. Very wide flight envelope. It has a large wing surface so it floats forever. It flies like...

    Help! Using bevel cuts rather than A or B fold?

    I have one of these bevel cutters and it works really well. I've never really liked A and B folds so for my next plane (a pusher Hangar Simple Stick with FPV) I thought I would just cut bevels for the square profile body and fold it up. It sure was quicker and easier to build. Has anyone else...

    XA (3D) with Foam Board Design Challenge

    This should be an interesting build off to see what is possible with foam board. Personally, I find 3d and XA to be very fun, but extremely expensive. Even a ~50" airframe can run you up to 200$- not including electronics. Wouldn't it be great if we could build our own airframes for less than...
