    Pusher vs. Puller propellers

    Many times, when looking at various RC planes, the propellers are often in the front or back. If you are designing and building a plane and had the option of either a puller or pusher propeller, is there any difference between the two? If so, how does the position of the propeller affect the...

    slot prop vs pusher

    I'm designing some more jets and would like to know which is better. having a slot prop type set up or have the motor right at the back. Is one system better than the other?

    FT-22 motor and prop help

    I built my FT-22 but I am confused on how should the prop and motor be and which way should rotate I need help . I have a pusher prop . Should the letter side of the prop faces the front or back of the plane? Should the motor rotate cw or ccw when I am looking to in from the back?

    Voyager Project - FPV Pusher Platform

    This is my first scratch build and I must say I am quite pleased with it! It is pretty nose heavy but I believe some design changes can fix that. Let me know what you guys think! Thanks! ~ Smooth Flying

    Sci-Fi Cylinder Pusher - Should I Attempt Such an Undertaking?

    Anyone think that building something like this would even fly. I'm new to the hobby, but I always say go big or go home. I'm sure alignment of the front spars with the little wings would be key. Anyone have other thoughts, suggestions, warnings? It's basically a pusher. I'd plan to put the...

    Scratchbuilt Pusher flown before Thunderstorm

    https://youtu.be/rVuXLh9Tdy0 Put my Mobius camera on the nose of my scratchbuilt pusher, the design of which was inspired by user dharkless's no-waste twin tail trainer, and the FT Bloody Wonder's wing design. A storm was rolling in, and I saw an opportunity to get some unique (for me) video...

    Forward swept, Canard, Pusher...Raiden

    Hello Friends. I've been working on a new project. I think I've stumbled on to one of those happy accidents. She's a Forward swept pusher with canards. I built her from DTFB in Flitetest Fashion. I'm sure you could adapt the plans to your building techniques. I used a Sunny Sky X2212-9 1400KV...

    Versa/Blunt Nose/Pun Jet - MASHUP

    It's been almost two years since I destroyed my last Versa Wing. It was a pusher and I managed to fold the wings on it, it was a pretty spectacular event. Since then, I started to build a Blunt Nose Versa, but scrapped the whole thing after I found out my Turnigy 2200 mAh 3S1P LiPo's wouldn't...

    Star Wars X-Wing proof of concept flight

    Ok so I'm planning on building a large 60in by 64in x-wing powered by 4 64mm edf's. I started the process by building a half scale version as a pusher. The concept worked great, it's essentially a bi-wingwith forward swept wings in x-configuration. The forward sweep gives great elevator control...

    FT Versa Pusher (setup?)

    All: I am a complete noob to the RC plane world and when my son showed me some videos of foam built planes I was hooked and look forward to spending time with him with the hobby. We plan on getting a Mini Slowbipe to learn on but want our second plane to be a FT Versa Pusher. I've already...

    Hey Guys, In this Thread I'd like to share with you my latest project, the RST Hunter. This Design is a Pusher with a V-Tail to reduce the weight a little bit in the back section and I just wanted it to try out! I've allready made 2 Pusher Desings. The V2 was actually quite a success, but it...

    tail booms and t tails

    I have been building and designing for some small amount of time and I find myself quite fond of single boom pushers. I'm not sure why i like them protection for the prop and simple nose to repair on impact probably weigh in. the problem I've found is that the combination of t tail and tail boom...

    Saab JAS 39 Gripen

    Update: The sketchup plans are good, increased the length of the slot for the wing. Here are a couple photos of it taped together to test fit the parts. Been really kicking the idea of building a pusher jet. Started hunting around for three view drawings and found this as a good candidate...

    Versa pusher Power Pod adaptor

    === OP start === I am building a simple 15cm wide center section for the versa wing that will allow the placement of the power pod in either direction without changes to the pod or airframe in order to make it truly swappable. When I am done I will make plans available and submit an article...

    Add pusher power Pod to Simple Soarer

    I am about to build a SS as project to entertain me as I recover from should replacement surgery. I plan on using it as both a tow launch and power glider. That said, I am toying with the idea of adding a power pod above and just aft of the wings. Something similar to the Bixler (II). So...

    Swappable Pusher Trainer

    I am not sure if this is the best place to request this, but I was wondering if there was any plans to make a pusher trainer swappable. I have built the Nutball, Flyer and Old Fogey, but really love pushers for their slow easy flying. Let me know! I look forward to more scratch building! NateO

    My take on the Smash Drone

    There are some articles posted by CStence he called his plane the smash drone. i thought this could be a nice simple fpv plane that uses the powerpod. i'm making a few modifications along the way. firstly i'm not using the old fogey wing, i'm using my 40 inch armin wing i have from another plane...

    Scratchbuild: Cheveron pusher wing. Simple KFm3 w/plans

    Hi Guys. This is my first post on the forums! I designed this foamboard wing as a nice easy to fly stable platform with the potential for FPV. I like it a lot, but I wanted to put the plans up to see what you guys think. I'm fairly new to building planes and I'm on about the 3rd version of...
