  1. Crawford Bros. Aeroplanes

    Lockheed U2- Master Series 70mm BDF

    This is a plane I've wanted to build since I got into RC last fall. It was on my original short list of future builds, and was pretty high up there too. To date it is the only plane on that list I've attempted to build. Plans change, what can I say? I need to learn to fly before I start...

    Prandtl Flying Wing

    I learned recently from @FoamyDM about a NASA test project called PRANDTL-D. He built his own version of the prototype and posted plans here: https://forum.flitetest.com/index.php?threads/prandtl-d-foam-board-wing-by-foamydm.58170/ This morning I began building my own wing from @FoamyDM 's...

    AD-1 Oblique Wing

    You guys should make the AD-1 Oblique Wing NASA experimental plane. I am not sure if it would scale down well, but you could probably freak out your friends ("DUDE U JUST DESTROYED YOUR WING!"), then laugh as it keeps flying. ;) Peter I think this is right up your alley. Feel free to add...

    Bi-directional plane challenge

    I think the Flitetest crew could fly this well before NASA does. http://www.gizmag.com/rotating-bi-directional-flying-wing-design/23982/ Regards, Brent

    What does Josh think of NASA using his Bixler for a VTOL design

    Was on you tube (one of my favorite time wasters) and found this video from NASA AMES flight test center of a modded Bixler (with four motors) that is VTOL. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOJ8TWYUedA I am just curious what Josh thinks about this and whether he has ever considered doing...
