    Chasing a Friend's Wing

    I had the chance this past weekend to fly with my friend who is a skilled fixed wing designer and pilot. I discovered recently that one of the most enjoyable forms of FPV flying is chasing other aircraft around. One of the things we rarely do with FPV miniquads these days is fly to higher...

    TTP-1: Single sheet Combat wing

    Maiden flight: I've spent some time designing a wing that was really cheap to build, very strong, very stable and capable of flying slow, perfect for wing combat!.

    I need help with wing measurements.

    Hello! I have just recalculated my trainer and it will be 900 grams. To be safe, the wings will be 175 dm^2. I want to have an aspect ratio of ten, so 10x^2 will equal 131.25 dm^2. When I do the math, the wings are ridiculously large for no reason. How do you calculate the wing sizes from a base...

    Ho do you get the CG on a delta wing?

    I am wondering the best way to get the CG on a delta wing or any swept back flying wing? I know how to get the CG on a straight wing, trainer etc. On a straight wing I usually go one third of the cord from the leading edge and that seems to work fine. Would I do the same with a delta wing...

Second question, I saw that all the UMX motor use gearboxes, is this necessary? does it effect...

    My FT Spear

    This was my first foamboard FT build (I have an electrohub copter awaiting completion), and so my technique isn't as polished as J. Bixler, but I managed to get it built, in only twice the estimated time! :) I took her out on her maiden today, still need a little tuning. I set my rate a bit low...

Initial ideas are based on this project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMkPjBf6dNQ Even though this wing flies well, I...
