    Laser cutter issues

    Hi, I recently bought a Sculpfun S10 laser cutter with the intention to cut my foamboard with it. Obviously not doing my research beforehand i quickly found out that my white (both paper and core) foamboard decided to mess with being lasered. Experiments with black (both paper and core)...

    Plane 50mm EDF P.15 Lippisch concept plane 2

    I was browsing the list of Freewing planes on Motionrc and the lippisch caught my eye. I decided to make my first design based on this plane and it flies great. It uses a 50 mm edf but i feel that the plane could be easily scaled down a bit and still fit the fan. It could also be scaled up...

    Foamboard in australia *2022*

    I have tried for many years to find good foamboard here, cheap. The stuff at the stores is heavy, and expensive, not good for building planes. I have tried different options, and I am still searching for the right one. Options at the moment: FliteTest Foam: Pros - Good quality...

    Giant 1/4 Scale C-47

    I've shared a lot of this on social media - and I've felt bad for not being on the forums in a while - so especially now that it's flown I want to make sure there's a place here on the FT Forums where I can engage, answer questions, and connect with everyone who isn't on the "other" places. So...

    Help! Video game plane to real life

    Hello! New here but I used to play this game called Simple Planes on my phone, pretty accurate with flite physics for a phone game and looks good too! The best thing though is that you can build your own stuff to fly, and there's an option to convert your plane into a 3d printable file. Now is...

    Looking for foamboard or similar in Australia (3mm)

    Looking for foamboard or similar in Australia, depron is too expensive when you can find it and it looks like the HK foam is not available in the 3mm at the moment. Im half way through a project and have run out. I would like to try the Flitetest foamboard but its currently only available in...

    B-58 Hustler - Quad 70mm EDF Foamboard Beast

    This was my "quarantine build" in early 2020, and I'm so happy with how it came out! It's big, about 7ft long and 4ft span, but it actually is a fairly simple build. The fuselage is simplified, square cross section, but its presence in the air is undiminished. :D Instead of sitting on the...

    I am looking to try my hand at foam board aircraft design so I can fly it over the summer and gain some experience. I have built a few of the FliteTest aircraft in the past so have some experience in building, but have never designed one myself, and am looking for interesting project ideas...

    STAR WARS scratch builds

    Star wars has a ton of cool starship designs that look just great, but if you go into the aerodynamics, most of them have huge flaws that make building scale flying replicas almost impossible. It can be a real challenge to find a good balance between scale and good flight caracteristics. I made...

    Making my own foamboard

    Foamboard is the soul of FliteTest, but what if you just don't have access to an foamboard source, or it's just too expensive? Running several tests I discovered how to make my own foamboard easy and cheap. :cool::cool::cool: This tutorial is aimed at those who like me do not have access to this...
