    Help! Need help with wiring up an FC

    After reading about this thing called a Flight Controller I was anxious to see that if I could incorporate one into my project. It can do some remarkable things like Go Home and Self Stabilization for beginners. The only problem is, it came with minimal instructions on how to wire it all up. If...

    So I finally got the editing done for this video. I thought I'd share it here for you guys to see. Slight disclaimer I forgot to put in the part where I actually put the googles on my head so I will have that video coming up in the next week as I am currently working on it. If you wouldn't...

    Help! Help with FT Explorer

    I recently finished a scratch build of the FT Explorer using the B pack motor and a 9 in reverse prop. I took it out for a maiden only to find that it is barely able to get off the ground and flies like a FT flyer or Nut-ball. Wondering if anyone has had past issues with this and if they figured...

    Flying Bloody Wonder with 10in Prop

    I have been flying a Bloody Wonder with a C pack motor and esc as well as a 8 in prop. I recently had a rough landing and broke my last 8 in prop. All I have left is 10 in props so I was wondering if anyone has flown a Bloody Wonder with a 10 in prop and hasn't had prop torque or any other issues?

    Flite Test "FT Elements" Simple Firewall and many other laser cut items

    While scratch building a FT Explorer I discovered that you need a FT Elements board to complete the build so I went on to Flite Test store and bought one. After making this purchase I wondered if I could laser cut my own FT Elements board for future projects. So I created this thread for people...

    wooden power pack

    During many crashes power packs can get beaten up very quickly. I was wondering if anyone has a laser printer file or something that matches ft power pack but that is made from wood.

    Arduino Scratch Build - "Screamin' Seagull II"

    Welcome to my build log for my next Arduino controlled RC scratch built airplane! Much of this project is going to be based off of work (especially in terms of software) found in my previous build log here. After my *very* successful test flight with my last Arduino plane, I've decided to...

    Mate The RC Crawler and A Plane

    when that crawler took off at the skate park to try to jump over the fence, it needed a tad bit of a boost, so when it was in the air, perfect time for wings and plane engines to fire up and make it fly!

    Cool Air-to-Air Video

    I thought this would be a fitting first post to this forum. It's a very cool FPV video of an RC plane shot by Red_FPV who is (IMHO) one of the top FPV pilots out there. Enjoy: https://www.airvuz.com/video/AERIAL-CINEMATO-FPV-4K-WITH-FPV-PLANES?id=5a85c76b8b15186e4cd41f85
