    Mini Ducted Fan - Vought F7U Cutlass

    This aircraft was not such a great full size plane but maybe you could take it to the small scale and make it work? I was thinking this could evovle into a swappable motor pod with a mini ducted fan for other platforms? Or even a multi rotor ducted fan? Just thinking out loud here.......

    FT Delta Absurdly Nose Heavy?

    Hey all, I've been into RC for a bit now, but have just recently started building my own aircraft. I decided to try out the FT Delta before getting into regular wings, and it came together very nicely... However, the only way I can get it to balance out correctly is if the battery is mounted at...

    Prop overspeed? - sudden vibration

    Hello... Newbie here, but longtime FT watcher. My son and I are finally getting into scratch building, and built our first power pod last night! Yay, he's so excited! We're basically using the guts from an Ares P-51; Park 370 motor, 18A ESC, 600mA 3C battery, I think (new to this). Everything...

    My first Versa Wing build

    This was from templates I cut from DTFB. The next one will be better, you learn a lot going through the process the first time. I covered the top with Yellow packing tape so we will know if it is inverted or not. We are going to fly with a power pod to start. I have an Emax 2812, so it...

    Battery Charger for Swapple

    Looks like the Flight Test Store is out of the "800mAh 3s 20c Lipo Battery" and I went to Hobby Town, when I told them what I wanted to do "Foam board airplane" they just walked away, and said they have nothing at this level. Question: With a XT60<->JST adapterer will the "LUMENIER 1000MAH 3S...

    Best plane to follow the storch

    I got the storch as my first build. I had a good time building it and I've gotten pretty good at flying it with no crashes yet, knock on wood. I am a beginner and I have some other friends that are joining me with this hobby. I am thinking about slightly upgrading for my next build. Would the...
