    Aerial laser tag

    I was just wondering if you guys would be willing to use lasers as tracer rounds to mimic a dog fight. Basically Aerial laser tag. The reason for this idea is it could give hobbyists a way to make there own dog fight without needing to use air soft gear.

    Solved Inspiration Poll: What Type of Plane Should I Make Next?

    Going to run this poll for a few days, and see where the interest is. I've got a couple electronics setups that are free to build around, and have been having a bit of an uninspired spell. I may build yet another plane before these results are closed out to keep busy, but I will take them into...

    New Fixed Wing Design Project

    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...

    Idea for next 3d printed aircraft video

    I've been curious about printing this spitfire I found on Thingiverse, and I was thinking of seeing Flitetest take the plane out, and demonstrate it's performance, here's the link to the Stl files for the Spitty:

    Carbon Fiber wings

    Hey guys, I'm just new around here and I have never actually built a plane before. Today I got to watching some of the videos on the DIY foamies from FT and Experimental Airlines (The Armin wing). I am learning a lot about how models are built, and it doesn't look nearly as intimidating anymore...

    To-Go transforming plane

    After constantly trying to cram my larger planes in the car without damaging them, building transforming objects with Legos, and seeing the folding wings on Peter's javelin video, I had this idea for one of your episodes to feature a fixed wing "backpack plane". Perhaps something fairly large...

    An idea for an exciting project and/or challenge

    Hello to all, my name is Jeffery! Inspired by this video: I came up with a simple idea for a challenge:•The competitors build drones and or planes •They switch up builds and whoever can do the most damage to the other's aircraft wins Clearly it may...

    I would like to see a show on pylon RC racing (fixed wing - muti rotor)

    Racing and all things that move seem to go hand in hand; now that is coming into it's own with-in RC with drone races, and while many of us don't go out to fly fast and low, some of us do.. Personally, I think it would be fun to see the FT crew setup a fun pylon race..

    request/challenge: Pilot pen airplane!

    Hello! I am Anas Yasser Malas, a 16 year old Jordanian living in UAE. My friend and I are building our first plane just to test it. And then proceeded into awesomeness. Thats just why we have started to watch your videos. And so far ive watched 60% of them(in 4 days!!). In one boring class I got...

    RC Super Hero

    I think it would be awesome to have an episode with an RC super hero. It would also be cool to have some kind of challenge with it. The challenges are epic! Maybe you could do some kind of dogfight: super hero against super villain! If anyone agrees with me, please reply. I love this show! keep...

    Would love to see a Taranis review or a whole bunch of radios

    There has been lots of reviews on head to head with everything from fpv, to batteries and even different plane/multi rotor styles (y, v-tail, x) but not much on the different options of transmitters. I know its hard to change from one you love but I have a taranis and would love to see it and...

    An Intro to Aerobatics Idea

    I think that it will be a good idea to specifically make a video in detail to advance the new pilots of the hobby to learn how to do aerobatic maneuvers. I'm also new to the hobby, only had five flights with the Dynam Smart Trainer. Now I would like to have some tips and tricks to impress my...

    FT Nitro

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make an FT nitro, perhaps a good way to something other than foam board for an FT balsa series. I dunno but i think it would be pretty cool to see an FT design powered by a cox 049 or something other that is similarly iconic. love the show, -Will

    Flying platform

    I have a project in mind and figured I would ask the largest bank of flight knowledge I have access to. I have decided that I want to build a flying war platform with FPV and bomb drops and the like. Since I partake in Nerf wars quite regularly and many of them are outside I figured that a UAV...

    Hows it going flitetest crew, DP AIR CREW here, I had a quick idea to spin off you all to see what you think. So I am super excited about the ft Spitfire because the Spitfire is my favorite war bird, I just had my maiden flight today and although a little tail heavy it flew brilliantly. I was...

    EDF Tricopter

    Earlier I was explaining how a multi-rotor works to a buddy of mine when I had a side thought. If you have a tricopter which has a servo-driven yaw axis, and uses the thrust to operate pitch and roll; you should theoretically, replace the propellers with Electric-Ducted-Fans and be able to...

    Parachute idea with a twist

    I really like the idea of the simple bomb drop mechanism to carry a variety of things but what about this: Has anyone tried attaching a larger parachute to the tail of the plane itself? I think it would be hilarious if you were in midflight or a stall and when you flipped a switch, you would...
