    First tree incident

    So was out flying in some strong winds today with the versa wing. Was all good until I decided to dive the trees and didn't pull up in time haha. I think it was a combination of wind gust and not seeing the very top of the tree on my tiny 5" screen. Hence climbing the tree to recover it. Videos...

    FT Versa Battery position options.

    Hi, currently building the FT Versa (tractor with the swoppable powerpod). Started thinking about different options using the powerpod A) Has anyone ever tried a powerpod where the motor / prop is mounted at the back, so pusher with powerpod rather than pusher with the FT firewall. B) I'm not...

    Hey guys. I'm new to the hobby, and made an ft versa from 5mm foam board. 40a turnigy 1450kv brushless outrunner, pusher configuration, 30a (I'm so sorry, but due to budget this was needed, and I never go above 3/4 throttle for more than 3 seconds) ESC, and a 2800mah 3s. I have 9x7.5 and 9x4...

    VTOL - Tricopter Blunt Versa Mashup

    VTOL with Tricopter and Blunt Nose Versa The plans for the two were overlaid. The tilt mechanism on the front motors would be a real complicated deal with the "Y" configuration... So, I changed it to a "T" copter and lengthened the rear boom to accommodate the positioning changes. In the...

    Optimizing flying wing design

    My question is fairly simple: how does one decide on the ideal dimensions and ratios for a flying wing given the target cruising speed and payload or other relevant flight characteristics. For a more conventional aircraft, I feel like I have a fairly good intuition as far as changing the wing...

    Help! Bad Servo?

    My servos on my versa are really sloppy. They were never perfect, but one of them has gotten really bad with the other seemingly not far behind. I noticed a lot of oscillation in flight today, so I grounded it quickly and noticed how far I could move the control surface. They are the...

    My KF Airfoil Sport Glider

    After building multiple Versa wings, I figured I would try my hand at designing my own wing design. I decided to go with a Kline–Fogleman stepped airfoil for the simplicity and glide characteristics. In an effort to balance the air frame without adding any extra weights to the nose, I...

    FPV Blunt Nose Versa - My Return to Planes

    Yesterday I was flying at the field and after filming I decided to use my 2200mAh packs for some leisurely cruising because lately my miniquad has been stressing me out. It was really relaxing and for some time I forgot that I was sitting next to my car, rather than floating around in the field...

    Blunt Nose Versa With Stryker Electronics?

    Hi guys I recently ordered my first FT kit. A Versa with the Blunt Nose conversion. My question is can I use my motor and ESC from my F-27Q Stryker? For those unfamiliar with the Stryker the motor is a 480 size 2200 kv and the esc is a E-flite 60 amp Pro Series. I ran 3s 2200mah and 4s 2200mah...

    Redesigning the Blunt nose Versa to fit my Turnigy 3s 2200mah batteries

    The plans : !!!! *note the black line at the front hatch. This should be a red score line 6/17/2015 The maiden went beautifully yesterday! I may need to adjust the CG marks or remove some weight. I trimmed a lot of elevator into it to keep the nose up. I slid the battery to the rear a...

    Versa/Blunt Nose/Pun Jet - MASHUP

    It's been almost two years since I destroyed my last Versa Wing. It was a pusher and I managed to fold the wings on it, it was a pretty spectacular event. Since then, I started to build a Blunt Nose Versa, but scrapped the whole thing after I found out my Turnigy 2200 mAh 3S1P LiPo's wouldn't...
