    Help! Mini Edge 540

    Hi Guys, I'm going to try and build the edge 540 scaled down to fit the power pack A. Does anybody know what scale it should be or the span? I don't mind if it is a bit slower. Also the battery is 800 mah 2s. Thanks

    Help! Brushless motor getting too hot, impossible to touch.

    So I built an ft mini mustang and the motor got closes to 100 degrees when I checked it. I am using the power pack a with the Radial 1806 2280kV motor. I am also using a 3s 800mah lipo. Any ideas on why it's getting so hot and how to fix it?

    Mini FT Flyer

    I'd like to build the FT Flyer, and I have enough parts to build a 3ch mini-sized plane. I'd rather use the stuff I've already got than order a power pack B. (and if I do get one, it'll probably end up in an FT Explorer...) Anyway, I'm planning on scaling down the FT Flyer plans to fit my A pack...

    Foam Board Baby Hornet

    Yesterday I started working on a new plane! I've had a half-finished balsa kit of the Baby Hornet lying around for years, and for complicated reasons [bad workmanship] it will probably never fly. Besides, it's a free flight model. Here's the link to the original kit: (I got it before it was...

    ESC beeping problem

    I got the tiny trainer speed build kit last week. I got everything from the FT starter bundle (So I'm using the Power Pack A, a Tattu 2 cell battery, and the Spektrum DXe Transmitter). Every time I move the throttle a little the ESC beeps at me and the motor jitters a bit. I believe that I...

    Plane White Diamond Plans 1.2

    The White Diamond was originally designed in my head over a work lunch, and stemmed from a desire to build a small, fast plane using only one sheet of foam board in the minimum amount of time possible. Influenced by my love for sleek stealth aircraft, this plane takes a unique approach to single...

    Power Pack A Motor Troubleshooting

    I recently assembled the power pod for a Tiny Trainer. Some of the instructions weren't clear and I had tried to attach it using four screws instead of the two it showed in the video which didn't work. I also used the medium sized screws rather than the smallest ones that came with the motor...

    Love a first sight - Anime X1 fighter

    I like to look a anime planes for design inspirations as I try to dream up new things to build from foam. I think I like the "will it float" style challenges for airplanes. Ali poked around here and found something on devion2112's page. He had a build photo or two and a posting of the plan in...
