    V22 VTOL scratch build??

    My first forum post here. Hope I obeyed all the etiquette. :P Just finished my first scratch build, a 4channel mix of a 300s and a Mustang. Still dialing in the CG. Used lots of tips and tricks from here! So thanks all for the inspiration! But it got me thinking, how cool would it be to have a...

    Wanted to run this idea/question by the community, but perhaps it's already been covered elsewhere. Regardless..... I've been running some designs on paper for a 3 motor VTOL design. Yes, I know it's nothing new but wanted to give it a shot anyway. My design will have two motors in the front...

    New VTOL concept - Hybrid Airplane/tricopter

    Hi guys, I think I invented a new model of VTOL airplane. Correct me if I'm wrong! It's made of blue insulation foam with the hot wire cutting technic. My main goal was to create a model easy to fly without any tilting parts (wings and/or rotors) like are the "Osprey", "AW609" and many...

    X-19 Hummingbird Scratch Build

    Watching through some of the older episodes I found this - Is there scope for flitetest to have a build episode something along the same lines. Maybe even get Peter on board as a guest for the show.
