    FT Racer, new build more motor question

    I have built quite a few FT planes from both plans and speed build kits and my favorite plane has been the FT Racer (Slinger?) design. It has a wonderful speed envelope and is such a beautiful plane in the air. Unfortunately this past weekend it met its end, it flew a great 1.5hr session on...

    My First Build/ Build and Design Thread

    So, I have never built a plane before from scratch. So this might take a while to maiden. I am no stickler on people who use my ideas so, If you like this idea as much as I do then by all means use it to its full extent, just please give me some credit. DISCLAIMER: THIS WILL TAKE A LONG TIME...

    I would like to see a show on pylon RC racing (fixed wing - muti rotor)

    Racing and all things that move seem to go hand in hand; now that is coming into it's own with-in RC with drone races, and while many of us don't go out to fly fast and low, some of us do.. Personally, I think it would be fun to see the FT crew setup a fun pylon race..

    Hi Folks, Just completed this one. Added a battery cover/bottom fairing. Have any of you added landing gear? I've seen a couple in my research but what do you suggest? Cheers, Adrian

    FT Viggen max speed? Does anybody know?

    Hey everyone, So, I was wondering, what is the max speed of the FT Viggen? Maybe somebody knows or has a general idea? 60 mph? 70 mph? 80 mph? If you know, you can also say it in km/h of course. Is the Viggen the fastest FT plane? Or is the Racer ( Rip Slinger ) faster? Thanks in advance...

    3D Printed 250 Racer Build Log

    I was recently inspired by mpbiv's build and ImmersionRC's new Vortex and decided to design another quad. As you can see, the design is heavily influenced by the ImmersionRC Vortex. You may also notice it's far from finished. At this point in the project I would like to do something a little...

    FT Racer uncontrollable

    I took my FT Racer out for a maiden today and it was uncontrollable. It was fine on the straightaways but upon banking to the left it uncontrollably continued to bank to the left until it was vertical and fell out of the sky. I saved it a couple of times and tweaked my DR/Expo settings several...

    What's a good FAST motor for FT Racer and Versa Wing?

    My dad is getting into RC planes and so he bought the FT Racer, Baby Blender, and Versa Wing, and I am picking out the electronics. The plan is to get two powerpod setups to use on the three planes. One will be just a simple 3s 25A system with ample thrust that'll work well on all three planes...

    FT Racer (Slinger) Power System

    So, I'm planning on building a FT Slinger soon. I chose this one because I want to go fast :cool:. When I say I want to go fast I want to be able to really scream across the sky. So I was looking into what prop-motor-esc-battery to use in it. I'm thinking around a 9inch with a high pitch for...

    FT Racer (Slinger) First Build

    I've watched all of the swappable series videos and loved the idea of building my own plane (I only have a very small Firefly trainer ATM) but thought that for the work/time investment that most of the plans require it might not work as well for me as a beginner (I'm too poor to buy speedbuild...
