    New BLHeli 12A ESC will not calibrate...HELP!

    I'm trying to calibrate the 12A Emax BLHeli ESC that came with my FT Tiny Trainer. My receiver is a Turnigy TGY-iA6C and it is successfully bound to my Evolution. For some unknown reason I can't get my ESCs to go into programming mode. When I connect the battery, the Evolution recognizes the RX...

    Tiny Trainer build question

    Hi All! This is my first time posting here, though I've been lurking around for a few weeks trying to build up the courage to actually build something. After a fair bit of research, I've decided I want to give the Tiny Trainer a shot. It seems straightforward and like it would be a good first...

    New Guy with Tiny Trainer Flight Issues

    Good Day All, I have been interested in model aviation for over 40 years. As a kid I built models but could not afford the radios and servos so never flew anything I built. This past winter I purchase a Hobby Zone Champ and learned to fly it pretty well. I think decided to build the Tiny...

    Tiny Trainer, and a 2204 2300kv motor

    I just purchased a 2204 2300kv emax motor due to the dis-trust I have towards the 1806 motor from reading plenty of reviews and a failure I had with it.. It is a bit larger so I took a drill bit and made the holes larger on the firewall but the motor did not line up properly. How should I mount...

    Does anyone have aerodynamic curves for the Tiny Trainer aileron wing airfoil?

    I am using my Tiny Trainer for a project and it would help if I have the lift vs AoA curve for the aileron wing. The most pressing need is for the stall AoA. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Tiny Trainer aileron rolls left wierd

    I only started flying last September and I have 11 hours, 40 minutes of flight time and 4.5 hours of that on my TT scratch build. I keep a very accurate spreadsheet that I made. I feel that I'm becoming a solid pilot and rarely crash with solid good landings. I have six operational planes with...

    Tiny Trainer With No Thrust

    I recently finished building my first Flite Test airplane. I built the Tiny Trainer from their "Getting Started" package deal. This package deal comes with an Emax 1806 motor, Emax Bl Heli 12amp ESC, a 2 cell lipo battery, and a Spektrum DXe transmitter. I attempted a maiden flight today but had...

    I have Power Pod A. Breaking props when I land. How do I turn on "brake" with this Blheli esc? Also, where can I buy cheap props for a 5mm shaft?

    FT Tiny Trainer Center of Gravity

    This week I received my Tiny Trainer Get Started Package, and I just finished assembling it in the three channel configuration. After putting all of the electronics in, I found that the plane was very nose-heavy, so much so that I had to put the battery at the very back of the velcro strip to...

    Tiny Trainer motor question

    Hello, I'm new to the hobby and building a Tiny Trainer. Would this be a good motor for it? https://hobbyking.com/en_us/qav1806-2300kv-ccw.html It's already on the power pod, but I figured I'd better ask before the maiden. Will use this prop...

    3mm Depron

    The design I'm currently working on is a powered glider (think tiny trainer +30%) but using the EA 'armin' wing design and hence my question... Would it be possible to use 3mm Depron rather than the 5mm or 6mm most FT and Youtube designs suggest? I intend on covering the wing with tape AND...

    Laser Cutter issues

    NO BIG DEAL, but on my FT tiny trainer were some scorch marks and several lines were not properly cut. I hope someone from flite test sees this, maybe there is a problem with the laser cutters. just thought I'd let you know :)

    Hello, So for my Mid-life Crisis, I went on my 41st B-day and bought a cheap Blade Nano QX 3D from my local hobby store. While I was looking to educate myself on Quads and FPV I came across the flite test crew comparing some quads with FPV. Next time I was on Youtube it suggested I watch a...

    Ft tiny trainer won't fly

    So I finally finished building my tiny trainer from the plans and took off after charging my batteries to full. Low and behold when I power the motor up and launch it flys straight into the ground. It does this over and over again with different batteries and motors. I am using a zippy 20c...
