    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...

    Baby Blender wing dimensions

    Hi everyone, I'm an 8th grader, and our school science fair is coming up this year, and my plan is to make a conventional airfoil and a KF step airfoil and test them out to see which one generates more lift in a controlled environment. For my conventional airfoil, I plan to use the FT Baby...

    Best Flying Wing

    Hey Everyone, I've been looking for a while for the best flying wing for a good price. I was leaning towards the Teksumo, but its battery compartment and servos are on the bottom. I also am looking at the Tuffwing. Any other suggestions? I DON'T like flying with rudders, so that is why I am...

    Make a wing from the Bixler packaging

    Why not recycle the EPS packaging box. 3 big flat pieces can be cut from the Bixler packaging box, surely that can be used to make a flying wing. I'm going to give it a go anyway.

    FT Versa Wing reverse power pod install

    I love the new swappable wing that Josh designed. In fact I like it so much that I want to get into fpv, but I don't want to mess with all my electronics and other stuff. They said on the review of the wing that mounting the pod on the bottom would not be a good idea, so I thought "why not just...

    The FT Community picked a wing for my next plane. Here is what I ordered:

    Well, the votes came in, and the FliteTest community narrowly picked a wing over a SPAD stick. Not wanting to disappoint, I ordered a Titan from Crash Test Hobby, and the NTM 3530 Motor/ESC/Prop Combo from Plane Insane RC. I made a point to order both from CONUS companies so I wouldn't have to...

    Landing gear on flying wings

    Hello everyone, Might sound a bit crazy but has anyone thought about or actually made a good set of landing gear for a flying wing? I am quite keen on installing some landing gear or retracts on my Zephyr II or future projects. Hand launching a 2.5kg flying wing isn't too much fun and it'd be...

    Scratchbuilt Wing-

    Ok, after crashing the Funbat enough times that required more props than I now care to count (though the last crash was a selfless act of mercy to spare the untimely demise of a spankin' new P-40) and also having seen the Joshes flying the Swifts, the Sumo, and the Bonzai I have come to...
