    Mighty mini Bushwacker

    I love flying my E-flite Timber, especially in the snow, and after seeing the bushwhacker episode on Flite Test, I was fascinated about the small space they were flying in. And I really like the mighty mini setup and size. I dont know why nobody has come up with a smaller bushwacker yet, it...

    Resto-Mod Project HK Cessna 182 1500mm to STOL airplane - Log

    This is a progress log of my project to recycle and old Rc plane and turn it into a sort of fantasy STOL airplane. Inspired by the huge amounts of nice bush planes available on the market lately I wanted one of my own. I wanted mine to be different and also thrifty! I was originally going to...

    ~30" B-pack Kit Fox and SuperSTOL Plans [project]

    So I'm going to try and put together a pair of simple speedbuild-ish STOL plans that could fly pretty well with a B-pack motor. I converted almost all of my previous MT2213 motor'd planes to the GT2215/09, and they were all 35"-45" span planes that really flew a lot easier with the beefier...

    Looking at STOL options

    Hi Friends, Ive thinking about getting a STOL type aircraft to counteract that fact that I cant easily access the larger flying spaces these days. Something like the Tundra is a nice choice, but going with the FT style I was thinking about going with the Bushwhacker... But the new FT Simple...

    Please do a show experimenting with extremely short landing techniques for planes.

    I fly FPV in rural places where it's often very rocky, hilly, with trees or other obstacles everywhere. That means it's very hard to find a flat open place to land a plane, especially the somewhat larger ones (Skywalker, Mini Talon, etc). Some ideas I have in descending order of expected...

    Carbon bush plane design and build

    Hey guys! Currently working on the design for a carbon fibre build. I love super cubs and bush planes, so its going to based around a cub. But not exactly scale. I'm looking to go full on STOL custom design. Going to be spending most of the time working in CAD until the design is finalized...

    STOL swappable

    I've had this in the works for a while and crashed the first 2 revisions of the plane. Though the most recent revision hasn't flown but I am pretty sure it will do well enough based on test flights of the previous versions. I wanted a STOL plane and my Bloody Wonder was mostly trashed with...

    Hopping on the bush plane bandwagon

    I got myself a rare free weekend and even though I have couple of other RC projects in progress, I decided to make myself a bush-type plane from some spare parts I had laying around. Here is the result: Specs for those that are interested: Weight: 300 grams span: 900 mm length: 700 mm...

    STOL Cargo Plane

    I need help designing/building a Cargo plane, That's also capable of STOL (short take off and landing). for the stol problem i was working on the Coandă effect like the AN-72 or Boeing YC-14. I was wondering if foam and tapes twins plane would be a good test bed. can I use edf on the twins?
