    FT Delta Absurdly Nose Heavy?

    Hey all, I've been into RC for a bit now, but have just recently started building my own aircraft. I decided to try out the FT Delta before getting into regular wings, and it came together very nicely... However, the only way I can get it to balance out correctly is if the battery is mounted at...

    Elevons and Mixing Help Req- FT Delta

    Hi All, This is my first post here; I'm very, very new to RC and following an airboat that I've built, after finding Flitetest on YouTube, I decided to build the Delta. The build went ok thanks to all the videos and advice on here and I'm happy with it and the powerpod. My problem is...

    FT Delta/Blue Wonder Underpowered?

    Maidened my FT Delta today. It flew fairly well with 60% throws and expo @ 30. I cut the flight short though after noticing that it took almost full throttle to maintain altitude and could only get meager rate of climb at full throttle. Is this to be expected ? I'm considering an upgrade to an...

    FT Delta Torque Roll or CG Issue?

    Hi, first post here. I just built an FT Delta and the maiden flight went very bad. As soon as it would leave the ground it would roll really fast. I thought maybe it was a torque roll issue so I'd cut the throttle and try to glide it back down, but it was impossible to control and would just...

    FT Delta twitchy and unstable - is that normal?

    Hey guys, since I destroyed my FT Flyer the other day I decided to bite the bullet and have another go with my Delta, and while I didn't think the conditions were too windy (15km/h gusting to 25, or 9-15mph) I found it quite difficult at times to keep a stable attitude during a turn and found...

    Power pod nose reinforcement for swappable

    Hey guys, this is my first post here so if this is in the wrong section feel free to move it. I've recently built the FT Delta as my first plane to learn on and being new to RC planes I ended up making it a bit heavy by covering the surfaces with packing tape to waterproof it and add strength...

    FT Delta gone Wacko!

    Hello, I did my first flight with my FT Delta today. I got it trimmed and flying fine, then it would go wacko and do a spinning spiral of death into the ground! I did it twice, and I have no idea what caused it. It seemed like I still had control (not a radio lockout) but I couldn't recover...

    Need help with Delta Wing programming/ ailerons not working right

    I just built my FT Delta. I am using a DX6i. I mixed the Ailerons with the elevons. I can get them to move up and down in unison, but only one aileron at a time will move when I try to turn. I can reverse the servos and then they move in opposite directions just fine when I turn and only one...
