    The Longbow, the perfect adittion for your arrow

    An Arrow doent make sense if you have no bow. So this thing is a great addition to your arrow, although its flying caracteristics are the complete opposite. Its so slow and gentle that you can chase it by running or fly a few inches low over the ground, but it has enouth power for unlimited...

    Mini Arrow "Beluga" Pod Mod

    After building my first Mini Arrow I realized very quickly that the electronics pod was not big enough for me. I squeezed my 1000mah 3S in there anyway and taped the thing shut. Well that Arrow had a quick drop with a sudden stop, so I decided to make a new one with a bigger pod. I started...

    Modding My Fatshark Goggles (Maybe)

    This past November Hobbyking had countless days of sales, and I was able to pick up a pair of Fatshark Dominator V3s for $100 off! I also got a Quanum HB5808 receiver (LaForge clone) to go along with it. I have been rocking the same pair of Quanum DIY V1 goggles since I started FPV, so this is a...

    Taranis Gimbal dimensions

    I watched the Taranis Gimbal mod video and read the article. They look like nice gimbals. Could someone find out what the mounting hole spacing and gimble diameter are? I've been looking around and I can't find any mechanical drawings for it. I'm looking to replace the gimbles in an older...

    Fatshark Dominator V1 faceplate compatability?

    My school bought some goggles for our FPV team, one of them being a dominator v1. However I hate the eye cup things, and would like a faceplate, like this: Specified for HD and v2 http://www.getfpv.com/dominator-hd-v2-faceplate-with-fan.html or Specified for Attitude v3...

    Is my Modified Supercub in Danger?

    I have recently modified my Supercub Lp to great success. I took the center dihedral section out of the wings, added ailerons (8” long with 2x HXT 9gr servo) and did a brushless conversion with a Turnigy Park 1020kv 480, HK 30A ESC, running off a 2200mah 3cell driving a Turnigy wooden 10x7 prop...

    Guinea Pig -500 Series

    Finished Guinea Pig but I added more candy bombing space per my kids request so the -500 series. I added 5 inches of cabin to allow a little more cargo capacity for other experiments. I also rigged the door to open and close and will add that to the pictures later. No gear saves weight and I...

    Mini speedster wing mod question

    I have a question: If I were to glue a piece of posterboard across the bottom of the wing to cover the cavity and create a flat surface, would that increase the lift of the airfoil? I thinking I would only install it to the part where the wing turns up. Im looking for more lift at lower...

    Motor Mounting!

    Hey Guys, Before I start, this isn't really a scratch build but it's the only place I could think of to post this. So I picked up this little hand launch glider from my local hobby store when I was bored, and got the idea of converting it into a powered glider/plane. I have 2 Turnigy Park 300...

    FT22 with Kodak PlayFull camera

    I stuck a camera in my FT22 and flew it around a bit today. It worked better than I thought it would, so I may revisit the project in the future. Of course, the canopy looms too large in the shot, so that'd have to be cut off which would probably detract from the look of the plane, but I...
