    Greetings and a quick question re: balance of FT Flyer, plus bonus question.

    The FT Flyer is not my first plane, but it is my first FT foam board build. Previous scratch builds were wire-cut foam ribbed planes that flew very well in the hands of a decent pilot. That is something I am not, so I switched over to the FT Flyer for getting better, before I put my current...

    Can I use a fpv camera switcher on the 350qx3?

    I have a 350qx3 with a gopro gimbal hooked up to control from my dx8. The quad has two servo connectors in it and one is occupied with the gimbal. So my question is could I control another device like a servo along with the gimbal at the same time? Thx.

    FT-22 Raptor Build - and Questions From a Newbie!

    I build a Storch last week, and took it out for my first RC flight ever. After about 3 or 4 minutes of flying around, it took a pretty good tumble.
