    Combat Simulator

    I use the Battle of Airplanes Combat Simulator, I'm flying the Viggen, and I have noticed when I get shot down, the front that is the cockpit of the jet, ejects forwards intact, I wonder if in the @flitetest design of the Viggen, a parachute could be added, in-case in flight the cockpit comes...

    Better wing for the FT Viggen

    The FT Viggen was my first EDF and it's been fun plane to fly. It's a great design and actually goes together fairly easily. The one thing I haven't liked is the flat wing design. It's a big wing that, when made out of a single layer of foam-board, is weak and tends to warp. I even added some...

    ESC caught fire during preflight checklist

    Hello all, I recently built a twin edf engine plane. However, while running over the preflight checklist I did an engine check and my esc's both started smoking furiously. Both engines were the same, the were the 64mm EDF Viggen package from grayson hobby. Why did they catch fire? I was using...

    200% FT Viggen for Flite Fest East 2017

    Well I figured I would post a quick thread about the large EDF Viggen that I am madly working to have ready for FF East. I should have started sooner, but many things (new house) have slowed me down. That said I think I can have it at least ready to maiden in time for FF East. This will be our...

    Cold War Jets, EDF Series Please!

    Hi everyone. One of my favorite Flite Test designs was the FT Viggen, and I was wondering if the Flite Test Team could do a Cold War Jet EDF Series this winter. I would love to see the F-105 Thunderchief built much like the Viggen was. How about we put it to a vote? Each person vote for the Cold...

    FT Viggen 5,180' above sea level

    I finally got around to building the FT Viggen I purchased months ago. Here is a video my friend Jeff took of a flight at the Arvada Associated Modelers field outside of Denver, CO. Over a mile high!

    Glassed Viggen

    Hi everyone, I good friend of mine gave me a FT Viggen for Christmas. I've been too busy to get to it, but if it is anything like the FT-18, it will need support in the wings to make it durable. So, I'm going to start my build and document my process here. Please follow along.

    Viggen Thrust Vectoring and Power Pack C issues

    I bought a FT Viggen and I am planning on doing thrust vectoring. I bought the Powerpack C kit. After building the thrust vectoring kit it seems the motor's shaft from Power Pack C (GT 2215/ 09) gets in the way, so it cannot be mounted to the thrust vectoring unit. Am I supposed to use a...

    FT Viggen EDF with 3s battery???

    I'm looking to build my Viggen w an EDF. It seems that all the motors for EDF need a 4S battery. I have a good amount of 3S batteries and was hoping there was an EDF build that can utilize my 3S batteries and still give me the performance the Viggen deserves. Anyone have any...

    Speed challenge - duel edf Viggen

    Hi Team, The first flight test you tube video I watched was the Viggen, instantly hooked! Can we please have another speed challenge to see how fast you can get the Viggen to go, can we maybe see a duel 70mm, 12 blade edf version. I am not even sure if this is feasable, but hey! Cheers Scott

    One Piece EDF for FT Viggen

    I am hoping someone can recommend a good all-in-one EDF unit for the Ft Viggen, ideally from HobbyKing, or somewhere in Canada. I originally bought this setup, but had my Fan explode on spool up...: Turnigy L2855-2800 EDF Outrunner (630w) 10 Blade High-Performance 70mm EDF Ducted Fan Unit...

    FT Viggen Crash-Causing Problem

    So I recently put together one of my first speed-build kits from flite test, an FT Viggen. I was super excited to get it in the air using the 70mm edf setup from Grayson hobbies. When I finally got out to a field by my house to fly it, I ended up crashing and wrecking the airframe on takeoff...

    Hot Wire Foam cut Viggen

    This was my first time using a hot wire, I used the link for the formers from Flite Test, printed and traced the onto sheets of balsa wood and within an hour had the pieces cut and glued together, before I knew it I had the fuselage complete and it was ready for sanding, after a lot of sanding I...

    FT-3D, Pun Jet & Viggen ready for maiden

    My current FT line-up ready for maiden. Wanted to get some before pics in case they don't return in the same condition. All the plans were plotted and manually cut out of Adams (Dollar Tree/DG) foam board. The FT-3D is actually my second build for that plane. Tried flying the first one on a DX5e...

    FT Viggen max speed? Does anybody know?

    Hey everyone, So, I was wondering, what is the max speed of the FT Viggen? Maybe somebody knows or has a general idea? 60 mph? 70 mph? 80 mph? If you know, you can also say it in km/h of course. Is the Viggen the fastest FT plane? Or is the Racer ( Rip Slinger ) faster? Thanks in advance...

    300% FT Viggen for FliteFest 2015!!!

    Let me start off by saying that I always have to be building something. :D This time it will be a 300% (not 150%.....not 200%.....but 300%) FT Viggen. I figured since I have a 100% Viggen and David's original MiniViggen (45%), it's time to build a MonsterViggen (just came up with that name). :D...

    FT Viggen - expansion chamber

    Experimenting with 12 blade fans with the Viggen. They work fine but are soooooo quiet that it isn't worth the effort. The sound is right - just isn't loud. Has anyone experimented with the expansion chamber to get different sounds (especially with a 12 blade)? Specifically, I want to know...
