    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.

    17" Delta Flying Wing, Using Mostly UM Stryker Internals

    First of all, let me say there wasn't any planning ahead that went into this build... First thing I did was fold the airfoil, and it kinda went straight to improv, meaning hacking away foam with the Xacto knife. Story: I used to own a Parkzone Ultra Micro Stryker... I used to, I crashed it...
