    Motors on tiny quads, how long do they last?

    I have 2 Blade Inductrix and a Nano QX my youngest and I fly around the house/garage/non-windy days outside. How much time should we expect out of those tiny overworked motors? Replacement motors from Horizon seem a bit steep, anyone ever used the Micro Motor Warehouse motors? Their prices seem...

    Micro Su-35/37 with thrust vectoring nozzles - a challenge for Flite Test

    Hi Flite Test!!! I thought I will give you a hard project. You have already made F-22 from America, JA-37 from Europe, maybe it's time for something Russian? :) Your goal is to make an EDF Su-35/Su-37 (or a mix of them, like Su-35 with canards :D) from foam/depron with advanced 3D fuselage and...

    17" Delta Flying Wing, Using Mostly UM Stryker Internals

    First of all, let me say there wasn't any planning ahead that went into this build... First thing I did was fold the airfoil, and it kinda went straight to improv, meaning hacking away foam with the Xacto knife. Story: I used to own a Parkzone Ultra Micro Stryker... I used to, I crashed it...

    Just got the Inum..... (And Calling Joshua Finn!)

    I'm a new pilot, and after trying a couple Multi-rotors I thought it would be fun to get the Inum. It's my first RC Plane. The Inum is very, very, VERY light. about 0.3 ounces, just over 8 grams. This makes it less than half the weight of a Blade Nano and about 3 grams lighter than a Proto...

    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...

    Plantraco

    Hi, this is my first post on this website, so might I say that I absolutely love what FliteTest is doing for the RC community, and the content they bring to us. I wanted to ask if you had ever thought of doing an episode on the Plantraco micro kits, such as the Shoestring? I think this would be...

    Surfing and inverted climb-out with a high wing micro!

    I am getting comfortable with this Ares Taylorcraft 130. It is an incredibly capable plane even in it's bone stock 3-channel form. I do have a clipped aileron wing for it, but it is not being used in this video. I have thrashed this plane every which way from Sunday and it keeps on going! The...

    Micro quadcopter episode

    Would it be possible to have an episode on popular micro quadcopters? I know you just did the nano qx challenge, but If you did this could it be more like a competition, a "Mini Micro Nano Quadcopter Challenge" so to say, like the easiest to learn on, the the quickest, the most indestructible...
