    Photos coming later probably. First, a little intro so you know what's going on: I taught my friend all he knows about flying with my little champ.

    LibrePilot, Flight Data Pitch and Roll Reversed

    Hi, Just got my first semi-good drone (ZMR-250) and it may be a bit out of my league ahaha. I'm on my last set of props after every flight attempt has smashed at least one off. The problem is that the drone is flipping as soon as it goes to lift off. I have tested that all my motors are spinning...

    Pilot Error Rubber Band Strength

    I have had my share of busted props, bent landing gear, lost a horizontal stabilizer, but never a major wipe out. The fuselage stick on the Slow V was very weak and I had to replace that a couple times, but for my regular planes we were pretty uneventful in terms of crashing until recently...

    EPO stronger than "steel"?

    I am convinced; here's why. Coming in to land with my Durafly EPO Corsair, misjudged the proximity of some tall bushes next to the tarmac. Right wing caught the bushes and plane spun 360 degrees and skated a little ways almost cartwheeling. Broke one of the landing gear clean off. Wingtip was a...
