    Balsa Building Series Suggestion

    Hi guys, How about a show including applying balsa sheeting. I always shy away from building balsa wings that require balsa sheeting to make the very strong 'D' tube or other things like fuselages. Please put in a bit on how to glue balsa sheet on to both the top and bottom of a wing. I...

    Simple Storch Wing not flat on Bottom

    Building my Simple Storch Wing tonight and I messed up. The bottom of my wing is not flat, it curves up at the last grove before the leading edge. I have built the bloody wonder, the Simple Soarer, a blunt nose Versa, and a Spit and never had an issue until tonight. Should I scrap the wing...

    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...

    Parkzone f27Q Stryker

    I have been flying my Q for almost 2 years now. But its pretty battered and I wanted to buy another one but sadly found out they have been discontinued. I would buy parts because they seem to be available but they seem to be going too. Has anyone found a good alternative to this plane...

    What would be a good airfoil for a FPV flying wing

    Hi everyone. I am designing a flying wing. It is going to be 1m wingspan and I'm thinking that eventually I will add a small FPV system and use to teach myself FPV. I have designed it to be similar to the raptor 100 which I saw in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5W7Zz4YVEqM I'm...

    Mini speedster wing mod question

    I have a question: If I were to glue a piece of posterboard across the bottom of the wing to cover the cavity and create a flat surface, would that increase the lift of the airfoil? I thinking I would only install it to the part where the wing turns up. Im looking for more lift at lower...

    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.

    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...
