How about a show where the pilot has to recover the the plane and land it safely, whilst another person has the ability to shut down a control surface of their choice, extremely low rates, or present some sort of problematic situation.
What do y'all think? Or any ideas to improve upon this one.
Here are some suggestions for new FT models / Show builds -
C-130 Lets face it, who wouldn't want one of these in their collection.
Any Canard type, couple of samples here - Better still... Make it a 'Swapable' (glider & powered)
And this is just as much a 'challenge' to the guys as it is...
I would love to see an episode of FT wherein they set up a competition between a professional, full-scale helicopter pilot and a professional fixed-wing pilot. FPV Versacopter vs FT Arrow, neither pilot has any RC experience at all.
From the AR Drone 1.0 to current DJI and HH products, it seems an astoundingly high percentage of drones/multirotors unexpectedly head for the hills while in one of the automated modes. I would enjoy learning more about the causes of this behavior and what the users of these drones can do to...
Your designs are great you already have a tremendous amount of variety. Would you consider doing an Annular Wing or Closed wing design (ring)? Here's a video of another person's design.
What do you think? Are you up for the challenge?
Keep up the...
I would like to see how small the crew can make a plane and still manage to fly it. Since foam board is rather thick maybe card stock or reinforced construction paper for the body of the plane. This would be very cheap and very easy to replace parts. Just food for thought.
I think this is a confusing topic for many who started off this hobby recently. What advantages are there to each system, range, interference, flying areas, how does it affect video signals for FPV flights, etc.
