    Bunch of 2212/1000kv and 2200mah 3S - What to build?

    Hi, long time lurker here, but I have the "building bug" and a bunch of electronics left over from an old quad. The reason I am reaching out is: I have been having a heck of time finding plans for that setup. If any one out there has any experience with this please let me know! Thanks to all!

    Hey! New here. Showing off my scratchbuilt FFF plane! Tell me what you think

    So I decided to build a plane out of my spare quadcopter parts and some foam and servos etc. This is what I came up with. Its pretty crude, and I havent flown it yet, but finished it today. I'm not sure if I should add ailerons. Btw, this is my first build, and I have never flown any RC plane...

    Tri tilt T-copter? Possible? The Yawcopter. Picture.

I imagine hooking them all up to the rudder control would give it quite the turning radius, kinda like a blender. But what I want to know is can the two at the front tilt...

    Decathlon build

    I have always liked the looks of the American Chamion Xtreme Decathlon so I thought I would try and build one from foam board. My dad and I got together and developed a symmetrical air-foil with the ailerons cut out of the wing once it was made essentially retaining the perfect air-foil. Here...

    FT22 "flying" video

    I took my underpowered FT22 out a few days ago and shot some video. I smashed it up pretty good a day or two later, but it's back together and ready to go again.

    Scratchbuilt Chuck Glider

    My 7 year old wants to build a glider out of Dollar Tree Foamboard. (which, when at Dollar Tree with my wife the other day, used his own money to buy a sheet of foam board :-) Dave Powers had some kids glider plans back in the day, but I was thinking something with an airfoiled (sp?) wing would...

    The Majik1's First Scratch Build

    The Majik1 My First Scratch Build I am building a scratch build high wing plane. No plans, just cutting foam and seeing what works. I have no idea if it will fly or how well, but had some extra foamboard from work and thought I might as well try and build something. Here is what I have so...

    Scratchbuilt Wing-

    Ok, after crashing the Funbat enough times that required more props than I now care to count (though the last crash was a selfless act of mercy to spare the untimely demise of a spankin' new P-40) and also having seen the Joshes flying the Swifts, the Sumo, and the Bonzai I have come to...
