    Hovercraft Time? Plans and photos

    So I recently found Peter’s hover craft video and downloaded the PDF to find it quite sparse and lacking details. I believe the plan was just a starting point to help people understand the concept, but I was hoping for something a little more detailed. So I made some, full size PDF plans...

    Flite test plans decryption!

    Hi guys. I want to be brief as it's 3.30 am over here in the UK. And I'm having that kind of early morning thought. Planning. I have two questions (so far!) About the plans that Flite Test offer. My first: What is the sheet and tile key for? The second: is the CG measurement (in the case...

    Ft Sportster plans to foamboard

    I was wondering how to transfer the plans for the sportster onto the foam. The paper doesn't seem as big as the actual plane, it looks like it will only make a scaled down version. Do you have to print it on a larger paper?

    ~30" B-pack Kit Fox and SuperSTOL Plans [project]

    So I'm going to try and put together a pair of simple speedbuild-ish STOL plans that could fly pretty well with a B-pack motor. I converted almost all of my previous MT2213 motor'd planes to the GT2215/09, and they were all 35"-45" span planes that really flew a lot easier with the beefier...

    Supah Bype Build

    Hey! This is my first build that is purely scratch, and my design. It is loosely based on the Ultimate Biplane, should turn out nice. I have built one already, did not fly very well (don't use Elmer's FB), made some changes and hope they work! Last night I drew new plans, and cut them out...

    Polikarpov i-153 "Chaika" (Scratch Build)

    I'm not a huge gamer but when I was playing the game War Thunder I came across this plane. The nice thing is you can free flight with them and that way you can almost fly every plane from the beginning. The Polikarpov I-153 stood out because of its gull wing shape. Flying this plane was horrible...

    FT210 frame plans

    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has the plans for the FT210 frame, as I'd like to get it cut out of a sheet of carbon fibre that I've got. Thanks in advanced :)

    18mm EDF Plans

    Hello! So I have an 18mm EDF, that's taking up space (not much, but its in the way of other builds). I have tried multiple designs (9 to be exact), all failed. It came from a crashed UMX Habu (the original, not the new one), due to a radio failure. Do any of you have some kind of plan that I...

    FT Full Size Plan Printing Service

    I am a fellow FliteTest builder/pilot, and have built many of the FT designs, so I am fully aware of the pain of printing tiled pages and taping them together to cut out the parts. I am also fully aware of the pain of trying to get an office supply store to print full size plans at the correct...

    Question about publishing modified FT plans

    Hello, I really like FliteTest airplanes, but so far I only scratch-build them from their plans. Usually, I download full size plans and modify them in Inkscape so that they fit into FliteTest water resistant foam, print them on a plotter, temporarily glue them to the foamboard until I cut them...

    Update old build plans.

    Hi. I have now started on my first scratchbuild and i started with the Tiny Trainer. Would be nice if there is a posibility to go back and update old build plans so they have all markings that the new ones have. Had some problems in the start to get the right points to join the tiled pages. I...
