    Mighty mini REDAQ a mini twin seaplane

    My second project for the holidays: This really smart saeplane. The Redaq 1.8 is not my own design, the original EPP version was designed by Dieter W. and is well known in the german seaplane flyer community, you can find it at almost every event. I want to build a mini foamboard version with FT...

    Mighty mini Bushwacker

    I love flying my E-flite Timber, especially in the snow, and after seeing the bushwhacker episode on Flite Test, I was fascinated about the small space they were flying in. And I really like the mighty mini setup and size. I dont know why nobody has come up with a smaller bushwacker yet, it...

    Mini Aeromaster (Like) Biplane

    Mini Aeromaster Inspired Biplane I have been a fan of Lou Andrews Aeromaster since I was a teen, circa late 1970s and early 1980s. Mine was built for me by my father, that was a great gift. It flew one with a Fox Eagle III on the nose. Now since I returned to RC flying a few years ago I just...

    Mini flying wing

    Hi all, I was considering building an ultra micro flying wing and had a few questions. First off, how do you get an ESC that is not built into the receiver and does not cost 60$ like the one from HH. Second question, I saw that all the UMX motor use gearboxes, is this necessary? does it effect...

    Mini Ducted Fan - Vought F7U Cutlass

    This aircraft was not such a great full size plane but maybe you could take it to the small scale and make it work? I was thinking this could evovle into a swappable motor pod with a mini ducted fan for other platforms? Or even a multi rotor ducted fan? Just thinking out loud here.......

    Flite Test Builds: Add FPV?

    Hi everyone ;) ! I am looking to build a small aircraft that has some acrobatic possibilities and can carry a small fpv system like the Eachine TX03 (weighs about 6 grams).

    Two minis, one power pack

    My 9 year old (nearly 10) daughter is showing an interest in these planes, and I could use something a bit slower for casual flights in the tiny field behind our office. My Spear is just too fast for my skillset in such tight quarters at the moment. So, I'm thinking about putting together a...

    Scaled down FT Explorer

    After some looking for FT planes to build, decided to build a FT Explorer, but considered builing in a smaller size, for example 60%. My question: will it fly with the Power Pack A? Would be awesome if it could.

All the controls work but the motor wont spin up? The Throttle hold is not on and the lead to the receiver is in the correct orientation. There...

    Here is my attempt to make a biplane out of the Flite Test Mini-Scout. The wing span is barely over 24" and 5 31/32" wide. I stretched the fuselage a little. I also changed and enlarged the tail feathers a little bit. The bottom wing has 1 43/64" of dihedral. The top wing has no dihedral, but is...

    Mini Scout vs. Mini Speedster

    Currently learning to fly on my FT Tiny Trainer (3 channel). Had my first full battery flight without crashing last night. I have narrowed down my second plane to the Mini Scout or the Mini Speedster. I like the looks of the Speedster better, but more important is which one is easier to fly...
