    Mini Arrow "Beluga" Pod Mod

    After building my first Mini Arrow I realized very quickly that the electronics pod was not big enough for me. I squeezed my 1000mah 3S in there anyway and taped the thing shut. Well that Arrow had a quick drop with a sudden stop, so I decided to make a new one with a bigger pod. I started...

    Aris/Greece: noob with no flying clue reaching out for flying/construction help!

    Hi all! Name's Aris and I am from Greece. I only lately started building planes (with the FT method). While I tremendously enjoy building the planes (I have built the Nutball, the flyer, the delta, the old fogey, the tiny trainer AND the storch), I haven't been very lucky flying any of them ...

    Challenge. Multi rotor in space!

    How high can you get a multi rotor to fly? Anything goes, GPS, radio control, timer, don't matter. Get it as high as you can and prove how high it went with telemetry or video. Can you beat a rocket? Do it.

    How much space do I need?

    I built an FT Flyer that I'd like to try out soon but I'm not sure how much space I'll need to have for learning to fly "for real". What are your recommendations? I'll have to do some driving regardless, but that's okay. I just want to make sure that wherever I go, there is enough space. There...

I would like a live video link that has an effective range of 33Km, as the probe will start it decent at 33Km and the video link need not...

    Rockoon! Launch fpv rocket or rocket glider from edge of space

    I would love to see the guys build on the fpv to space glider segment with a FPV rocket launched from balloon at edge of space. A rocket with some "guided missile" type steering would be a possible precursor show. I really enjoyed the FPV to space episode and would love to see others along the...

After much searching on YouTube and other websites, I have a basic list of what I need. They include weather balloon parachute camera(s) hot packs (keep equipment warm)...

    Model Space Shuttle.

    I got this idea when i was watching the bomb drop video. I thought you guys could make a space shuttle. The two rocket boosters will be easy to make, and will be powered by hobby rocket engines, which can be bought cheaply. The massive fuel tank will probably serve no purpose other than...
