    Hello Everybody, I am brand new to the hobby and have decided that I would like to build a FT Versa Wing (I would purchase the FliteTest kit of course). But I need to know every piece of electronics I would need( I don't even have a transmitter). I have a list here so if you could add or...

    Build my first one - FT Versa Wing, but it doesn't fly. Advice needed.

    Hi Guys, First of all. This is a really great community. I read some of the threads and articles after watching almost every FT video (and hearing half of all podcasts). I really really like the idea, which is embodied by Flitetest. I am nearlly new to RC and flown only 2 or 3 times with a HK...

    Maiden of Modified Versawing & Motor Question

    Well, I maidened a modified versawing today. It being my first wing, I am definitely hooked! I am running a Turnigy D2826 2200kv motor on a 40A Plush esc and flew with a 2200mah 3s 30c lipo. Got about 13 minutes of flight and had lots of fun, but I am thinking FASTER can only be more...

    Normal or Blunt Nose Versa?

    Hey all, I'm going to get a versa wing at some point here, but I was wondering, should I get the blunt nose conversion too? This will be my third or fourth plane, and I have plenty of experience with bank-n-yank. After I get some line of sight stick time, I plan on converting it to my first FPV...

    FT Versa Wing Pusher CAD Files

    I created these files in order to cut out some combat Versas on a CNC cutting tool. I did change the design a little, like full span spars, new wing tips, and removal of the swappable pod. Please do not distribute. Only for personal use. Design rights remain with Josh Bixler and Flite Test.

    Just wanted to say thanks....

    ...to all you guys at Flite Test, for helping to renew my interest in flying rc and helping me to build two awesome new planes. I used to fly alot of rc helicopters but it was always very stressful flying $3k+ models around and a heart attack made me leave the hobby for several years. I just...

    Versa Wing Electronics Installation

    I am in the midst of building this bird and have watched the videos but have a question on Rx placement. I elected to put the servos on the top of the wing, am building a pusher so no power pod. Some of the videos I saw showed the battery mounted forward on the top of the wing as the CG is...

    Versa Pusher

    In the build video Josh stresses that the numbers on the prop should be pointed in the direction of flight, or, towards the front of the wing. I ask why? What difference does it make if you mount them rearward and just reverse the rotation of the shaft???:confused:

    Versa Pusher

    There used to be a good construction video on youtube by Josh for the Versa but it seems to be gone. Or maybe I am just using the wrong search argument. Can anyone point me to it?

    Blunt nose versa won't fly

    Hey, I have a problem that is driving me mad. I recently finished building a blunt nosed versa (not kit, from scratch), but it won't fly! I had to add very much dead weight in the nose to get the cg right. However, when I launch it, it just dives like it would if it was extremely nose heavy. I...

    Upgraded FT Versa Wing - I cannot believe my eyes!

    I have been wanting to upgrade the set-up on my Versa Wing for a while, on my original set-up (1600kv Motor, 8 by 4 Prop, 20Amp ESC, 1000mah 20c Battery) I was only getting five minutes maximum on flight times and had to fly at around three quarters throttle all the time. I used thicker 9mm Foam...

    BN Versa/Orange receiver issues

    I'm just completing a BNV using Spektrum DX6i and Orange 3 ch receiver and I am having problems with the receiver setup. I'm pretty sure it's something obvious I am missing. When I setup the DX6i in aircraft mode and use elevon mixing I get the ailerons on the elevator stick and the elevator...

    Beginner - Multirotor vs Fixed wing/Plane

    Hi all, I'm very new to the RC community and I need some advice. This question has probably been asked before but I couldn't find it with a search so here we go. I am interested in joining the RC hobby, but I'm unsure whether to start with fixed wing aircraft or multirotors. My budget is...

    Speedy Versa Wing - Build

    So if you were wondering where I had gotten to, I have been busy doing revision for upcoming exams (I know, it sucks right?); however, Ive managed to put a few hours this week into building a Versa Wing, and its almost done. Its got a pretty "beefy" motor too. 1450Kv. Too much? I built...
