    First Post!

    Hello from Pennsylvania! My brother and I are going to be building two of the DIY kits. We already have flown the FT Explorer. I'm torn between the FT-22 and the Sportster. Any suggestions? This will be our 2nd planes. Thanks!

    Will it Fly?

    Hey guys, I always liked the will it fly videos and you have not done one in a while. If this is due to a lack of ideas, I have one for you. I was recently channel surfing and came across the movie Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. In the movie there is a troop transport that looks like it is...

    Surprise my dad: what FT model to build for him?

    Hi guys, so I want to build a plane for my dad's birthday. He is kind of a noob (like me), but he loves gliders (he flies and crashes the MPX SOLIUS). He lives around an area with a lot of smaller soft hills and quite some wind, and he wants to learn slope soaring. He definitely needs a plane...

    Episode suggestion - Gravity vs Lift challenge

    Like a lot of the Flitetest community, my interest in RC remained dormant for many years after my introduction at an early age. When I discovered FT in September 2014, I had a new Apprentice in my hands within 48 hours and had taught myself to fly within a week (after Apprentice no. 2 was...

    Hello there, first of all thanks for yout time on reading this post! I'm going for my 4th FT build already (1/3 still flying ;)!) and since I dont know much about e-motors specifications and brands I always try to follow the FT guides but due to the airfield I got and the kind of materials I...

    Fight Test with Flitetest

    You should have an episode where everyone in the shop has to design and build their own plane that can fly a boxing glove. They can add any secret weapon of their choice on their plane that is no more dangerous than the plane itself (a.k.a. no explosives peter). They should have a time limit...

    New Plan Style???

    I am having a very difficult time with the new style of plans. There is never a duplicate piece in the tiled version of the plans meaning I have save my paper or reprint the second side of the wing, spar, or any other duplicate and figure out how to mirror the image for it to work. Could...

    3D FPV (Stereoscopic 3D)

    Hi FliteTest. I would like to suggest you guys take a look at the stereoscopic 3D FPV arena, and, if you can figure your way around it, even do a show (or at least an article) on it. It seems still to be a niche thing, but hey - you're into all things flight-related, right :cool: Maybe, to...

    FT Warthog

    I would love to see a FT Warthog. I can hallucinate it with Electric Ducted Fans, one could do differential thrust. Heck you guys could figure out a way to mount an air soft in the nose and make it a real gunship! It doesn't have to be perfect. It could be square, it wouldn't be a swappable...

    request/challenge: Pilot pen airplane!

    Hello! I am Anas Yasser Malas, a 16 year old Jordanian living in UAE. My friend and I are building our first plane just to test it. And then proceeded into awesomeness. Thats just why we have started to watch your videos. And so far ive watched 60% of them(in 4 days!!). In one boring class I got...

    X-19 Humming Bird, Where did it go?

    I was surfing through flite test videos and came across one of the first videos with Peter where he showed the X-19 Hummingbird flying (link below). I was wondering if you guys could show how that piece of beauty was put together. Better yet if you guys make it a build video and/or speed-build...

    Idea for aerial video episode

    hi all, I really loved this week's episode with Eric explaining some principles of aerial videography - I can't tell you how much value it adds to my hobby time when experienced guys care enough to go into depth on their subject of expertise. It gave me an idea for a future episode which...

    Scratch build supplies

    Hi there guys, I have followed flite test for quite awhile now, but it is only recent I tried to make a scratch build FT Nutball. My problem was that I live in Denmark, and it is expensive and sometimes hard to find some of the different supplies needed. So I was thinking it would be a good...

    An Intro to Aerobatics Idea

    I think that it will be a good idea to specifically make a video in detail to advance the new pilots of the hobby to learn how to do aerobatic maneuvers. I'm also new to the hobby, only had five flights with the Dynam Smart Trainer. Now I would like to have some tips and tricks to impress my...

    Suggestion: While you guys are out touring the country in the FT RV...

    As you guys take the FT experience on the road in the future you could drop in on some of the notable foam-board wizards that produce and share so much great content on the forums: I'd like to meet the guys in their own creative eco-systems: with a sort of "in the workshop" interview...

    Plantraco

    Hi, this is my first post on this website, so might I say that I absolutely love what FliteTest is doing for the RC community, and the content they bring to us. I wanted to ask if you had ever thought of doing an episode on the Plantraco micro kits, such as the Shoestring? I think this would be...

    SUGGESTION: 3rd person flying

    OK, here´s the idea: Two pilots with planes (you can try multirotors if this won´t work out later). The second plane has FPV and tries to follow the first one as good as possible. Now here comes the tricky part: The pilot of the first plane also is flying off the FPV signal of the following...

    Rocket Plane v2!

    I've had this idea since the very first rocket plane and I think I've submitted it to FT directly (not through the forms). Anyways my idea is to have some plane (probably a wing) that would have a rocket strapped to the back. How is it different than the first rocket plane? The difference...

    Show Suggestion: FPV dog-fight with ribbons

    This is my first post at FliteTest. I'm new to the hobby and I'm really enjoying the show you guys put out. I wanted to contribute and as you're always asking for Show Suggestions. Mine is: Air Combat with ribbons. Make it a competition with the winner getting the trophee shampane and...

    Suggestion: Review the "Hobbyking Yak 55 3D 1096mm EPP (ARF)"

    Hi there, Great show, guys! I just wanted to suggest that you do a review on the "Hobbyking Yak 55 3D 1096mm EPP (ARF)", if you got it in your hobbyking "to-review"-pile. I just received this plane yesterday and build it today - and I must say that I am amazed with the quality and state of...
