    Sbach 300 - an attempt at a lightweight build out of heavy 5mm european foam board

    Updates Update #1 - the Wings Update #2 - Fuselage (part 1) | #2a | #2b Original post: I guess the title says it all ;). Here's the concept drawing that I'll be using to design the parts: The Goals While I can fly basic aerobatics, I could use some inexpensive trainer to try to start...

    FT foam board weight

    Couldn't find the info so I thought I'd ask here , does anyone know what the weight (per area) of the FliteTest foam board is? I suspect it is a fair bit lighter than what I am using and would like to confirm this (or else I am really careless with the glue or deficient in some other area...

    Stubborn Ft Versa

    Hey guys. I'm new to the hobby, and made an ft versa from 5mm foam board. 40a turnigy 1450kv brushless outrunner, pusher configuration, 30a (I'm so sorry, but due to budget this was needed, and I never go above 3/4 throttle for more than 3 seconds) ESC, and a 2800mah 3s. I have 9x7.5 and 9x4...

I'm looking for something that is like a WC-130, WC-130J, or WC-121N in terms of function...

    Ekranoplan

    I saw the microwave airplane video and felt that the plane was perhaps flying in ground effect. Ground effect is a strange phenomena that increases lift and reduces drag when a plane with very wide wings(large chord length) is flown very low( less than chord length altitude). Such vehicles have...
