    Versa Wing HELP!

Most of the tie they fly up at about a 45 degree angle FLIP over rapidly and NOSEDIVE in to the ground (the HARD Arizona...

    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...

    Template for FT Versa Wing

    I cut the first half of the FT Versa Wing and realized that I am going to probably do this several more times. My son wants to race and combat together, plus his friends are going to get hooked when they see this plane. With a bunch of 13 year olds I figure I might be building a few of these...

Power pack kit or buy electronics seperately? (which engine, esc, etc.) 2. Prop suggestions? (moderate speed) 3...

    Blunt Nose Versa Wing: Did I Choose the Right Motor for SPEEEEED?

    Hi, All! So, I'm hoping I picked a good motor that will give me sick speed on my Blunt Nose Versa Wing build, now in progress. I'll be running a 4s 2250 LiPo, 60A BL Heli ESC, and a SunnySky 2820-6 / 920 KV. I know the KV is a bit low, but here's the stats on an APC 11x8 prop (which I know is...

    Noob question on Versa wing and receiver

    I'm just completing my initial build of the versa wing. I have a spectrum ar610 receiver and with the servos plugged into it its a bit too tall to fit completely inside the wing. I've built it as a pusher so I don't have the power pod. Since I'm a rather new flyer I'm expecting it to take a...

    Mini Flite Test Planes

    Recently I have been obsessed with smaller planes and decided to try and make some scaled down FT planes. The smaller ones seem to be a tad bit harder to fly than the bigger ones, and take more tweaking, but it is totally worth it when they are done. Some of the advantages of smaller planes are...
