    Oh Man, the Ups and Downs of Flying! Yesterday... TOUGH. Today... What a Great Feeling!!!!

    Today I left the field with just as many intact planes and even propellers as I came with! Depleted all six batteries I brought. It felt so good to have the planes do what I wanted them to do. Yesterday was such a different story. I maidened my Tiny Trainer, (which was amazing) and then I...

    FT Cub V2 tweaks and mods!

    I recently found myself with some spare time due to the COVID-19 situation, and figured I'd make the best of my extra day off. This is my second cub build and although my first cub was a good transition from 3ch to 4ch, I found it lacking in some respects (stability, didn't handle wind well...

    my first plane

    I had in mind, a simple puppy or a storch. I have read that the storm is better and more stable, but I feel that it is very big. If I print it, will the 88% scale of the actual plane fly well (1280mm)? I have a 2212 1000kw motor, I add diebro and flaps. Another option is the simple size cube...

    Crumpled Cub gear

    This was actually a good landing, but there's only so much that foam gear can take. I 3d printed a replacement from the FT Thingiverse page which is much more solid.
