    Calipso glider servos

    ive flown my calypso glider before but I switched out the receiver for a flysky one today to go with my new radio. Whenever I bind it the shudders khudder and can't be controlled. Any ideas as to what the issue is?

    3mm Depron

    The design I'm currently working on is a powered glider (think tiny trainer +30%) but using the EA 'armin' wing design and hence my question... Would it be possible to use 3mm Depron rather than the 5mm or 6mm most FT and Youtube designs suggest? I intend on covering the wing with tape AND...

    Another guy joined the forum to milk it for secrets.

    I haven't been "new" for a few years. I have been flying RC off and on, since 2001. I started with balsa gliders, and moved into foamy warbirds. I still have gliders but now they climb up on props, and lipos instead of a spool of line bolted to a car starter. I enjoy building as much as I...

    FT Simple Soarer

    Hi, I bought 50 sheets of flitetest foam. I was planning on building the Simple Soarer. Problem is, I only have 3S 1300mAh or 2S 800mAh. Will it run on either of those? or do I need to buy some 3S 800 mAh. Thanks Kevin

    FT Tiny Trainer glider for high start

    Hi guys, so I am building my first FT model ever, and it's a TT. I want it as a 2 channel glider, so I extended the polyhedral wing by 20 cm. I will enlargen the vertical stabilizer and the rudder a bit, to still get good rudder authority. I also want to highstart it, so I reinforced the main...

    Surprise my dad: what FT model to build for him?

    Hi guys, so I want to build a plane for my dad's birthday. He is kind of a noob (like me), but he loves gliders (he flies and crashes the MPX SOLIUS). He lives around an area with a lot of smaller soft hills and quite some wind, and he wants to learn slope soaring. He definitely needs a plane...

    2m sailplane fail

    As a project last summer, I made a balsa 2m sailplane. It was very nicely built and finished, all blue and white. I hand-cut all the pieces with an exacto knife. Then, I used CA to clue it all together. I finished it off with a blue solarfilm heat shrink covering. I tested the CG in the living...

    In the sky of Beaufort.

    This video was shot in Beaufort (Savoie, France). The glider is a Radian which is equipped with a mobius camera.

    Getting started with DLG

    I have been hooked on sailplanes for a while now, and am looking to head into DLG gliding. Can anyone provide suggestions as to what air frame to start with? I have considered the libelle and HK alternatives. I'm not afraid of spending 150-350 likely about the limit on this plane, but I don't...

    DLG / Sailplane episode

    It has been quite a while since we have had a episode on non-powered rc (well aside from the sparrow as a chuck glider). A getting started in gliding showcasing DLG, powered/unpowered gliders and warmliners would make for a great episode. Helping to get people prepped as the spring weather...

    EFlite UMX WhipIt: My entry into fixed wing flying...

    With a bit of experience with contra-rotating helis and an AR Parrot drone, I decided that I wanted to start flying fixed wing. Being in a remote town, with nothing in the way of local flying contacts, I figured that 2 channel flying is the way to start, so I bought a WhipIt. For those who...

    Multi-part wings - strengthening query for 2M Sailplane (SIG Riser Replicant)

    Hello Everybody, My name is Martin, and and I am based in Auckland, New Zealand. I am self-confessed 'slope trash' in that I fly gliders almost exclusively (the exclusion being a HK Spitfire Mk. 24), and slope gliders in exclusion to almost everything else. In Auckland we are very lucky in...

    DLG Show

    Hi Guys, you all make an amazing show. Love to watch it. I was thinking, no one out there seems to have come up with a good DLG out of DTFB. It is something that I am trying to figure out and I think might be a very fun project. In terms of the plane, I am trying to figure out a short bodied...

    What plane is this? IDENTIFY PLEASE!

    I was given this amazing 4 channel glider. It resembles the style of an E-flite Ascent, but it is smaller. I am hoping that one of you are able to tell me what type of plane it is. Let me know. Also if any of you have a manual or anything that would be great.

    My KF Airfoil Sport Glider

    After building multiple Versa wings, I figured I would try my hand at designing my own wing design. I decided to go with a Kline–Fogleman stepped airfoil for the simplicity and glide characteristics. In an effort to balance the air frame without adding any extra weights to the nose, I...
