    Swept tail elevator design?

    Hey everyone! Hope you've been staying safe and healthy. I've been designing a new foamie with swept wing and tail and am stuck on how to implement elevators with the swept tail. I can't really find any example and want to tie elevators to one servo... Any single elevator setup tends to bend the...

    First build had it's maiden flight today!

    Howdy y'all! Last week I became interested in RC planes (I have a deep interest in Rocketry and love flying planes in Kerbal) and ordered a RadioLink T8FB transmitter, 2200 KV motor, ESC, pair of servos, and 3000 mAh battery. I stopped by dollar store for some Adam's foam board and duct tape. I...

    How hot is too hot to fly?

    Hey all, finally built my first foamie, but out in castaic CA it's regularly 90-100+ in the summer, so I'm worried about the integrity of my hot glue joints if I try to fly in this kind of weather. I guess my question is what would be the upper limit for hot weather, and would cutting...

    Yak-1 Custom Foamie

    Hello everyone! The FT war-birds inspired me to try creating my own from scratch. I built the ft tiny trainer to re-teach myself to fly (last time was when I was 10, now I'm 25) and once I was confident in my abilities I set off. Why the yak-1? mostly because I think we don't have enough people...

    3D Foamie with 2200mAh 3s 30C

    I have stocked up on 2200mAh 3s 30C batteries. I was wondering if any of you know a good 3D foamie which will accept my batteries, which will ship to UK addresses. I would preferably like a KIT/ARF/PNF/BNF, but not an RTF. Also, I'd rather have something like a scale aerobatic plane, not a...

    Profile FT3D Motor questions

    After the moisture destroyed my kit FT3D at flitefest, I decided to satisfy the urge for an AS3Xtra by building a profile 3D foamie. I used nothing but hot glue and large popsicle sticks to secure the tail and all that, but heres the problem. The only motor I have is a 24gram blue wonder equiv...

    3D Hawk: PERFECT for beginners!

    For those who would like to get into the 3D Plane's, I would suggest the 3D Hawk. This is my first 3D Plane and is VERY easy to fly with even the most minimal experience. They say to use 5g servos but all I had have are 9g and they work just fine. I also suggest getting a CF wing spar as it WILL...
