    Spray painted FT TT and Explorer, notes on sanding/masking

    I painted my FliteTest planes! Rust-Oleum spray paint, matte base coat with gloss color coat + gloss clear coat. I didn't end up needing to sand for good adhesion even on taped areas. I had some dollar-store foam core board and some lasercut semi-waterproof. I had already been flying the planes...

    Help! Ft 20 amp Esc random beeping

    Hello, I am 15 and just getting into the hobby. I have built a few FT planes before, and this is a new and interesting story. I got my tiny trainer speed build kit over the weekend.

    ESC beeping problem

    I got the tiny trainer speed build kit last week. I got everything from the FT starter bundle (So I'm using the Power Pack A, a Tattu 2 cell battery, and the Spektrum DXe Transmitter). Every time I move the throttle a little the ESC beeps at me and the motor jitters a bit. I believe that I...

Still, I managed to fpv it...

    Getting into Foamies with my son

    I tried to start with RC planes about a dozen years ago, but new kids and school and jobs caused me to put the hobby aside for a number of years. Now that my kids are older, I'm getting back into it! It's always nice to have someone to share the hobby with, and provide enthusiasm while building...
