Hey there guys, just wondering if you had a chance to look st the new E-Flite Viper EDF 70mm? I am having steering troubles? I like the throw on the rudder but the nose wheel seems to be lacking in the turning!! Let me know what you guys think? I did not bind the safe-flight in when binding the aircraft!! Thank you for your input!!

Variations on a theme, 1, Touch down on a tea towel. When that gets too easy - 2. Arrested landings - two bean bags ties to about 4' of string sitting on a 4x8 sheet of plywood. A tail hook bent out of a coat hanger and attached to the main landing gear of a nose wheel trainer should work. If you use a tail dragger you will need to add an attach point behind the cg. If you want to up the pucker factor put the plywood sheet up on a picnic table to punish low approaches.

You should do a challenge like "pig" in basketball, Michael Jordan/Larry Bird style. Off the roof, around the flag pole with a STOL landing through the gate.....! Use the FT Bushwhacker and tear it up like Josh and Peter did in the park back in the day. That would be an incredible vid!!!

You guys made up a great game! I've got a semi-related challenge for you: Tail-hook landings. Many years ago I tried this as a personal challenge with a .40 glow Hellcat. Added a tail hook set to drop at engine idle. The "carrier" consisted of a marked off space on the ground with a long string and some sand bags across it. Would love to see you all test your precision landing skills with this challenge. Each player could use the plane of their choice. Anything from biplane to jet plane! Keep the fun coming! The Challenge series is great!

Because people loose interest in seeing them build and crash the same simple foam board planes over and over. Seems like the only part of hobby they like to cover. I find myself skipping most of the quad and foam videos lately. Iv seen all their old videos so I just don't feel like I need to watch the new ones. They asked what we want to see next.

No doubt you are correct about asking for ideas, which they normally do. You have a few good ones, especially the recycled stuff becoming an RC plane. As a habit I recycle foam drink cups of all sizes since the foam is already round and makes for great fuselage panels. I first carve out a fuselage design, often starting with a chunk of packing foam most folks throw out, or a foam glider from a store when they are on sale. Adding and removing foam makes just about any fuselage design possible. I have made a few Youtube videos for various projects starting with $1 glider kits that were poor kit glider toys from the Dollar Tree store. Once the airframe "plug" is shaped, I take rings cut from foam drink cups and friction fit them to the plug spaced often 3" apart. Then I start gluing on foam panels from drink cups to finish the fuselage. One cut from nose to tail, normally on the bottom, makes it possible to remove the plug. I end up with a thin foam shell fuselage I can add more foam panels, or use as it. Well, that is enough on the method for now.

Some of the very simple challenges like dropping lawn darts, or taking out balloons were all great fun, I really like the enthusiasm in these videos. So here are some ideas, possibly you'll be able to make something of them: How hard would it be to set up a trench run (like in A new hope) for some FPV bombing? mini-planes would be fun but mini-quads can be rigged up with a servo to drop something. For some added fun you can give people nerf guns to harass the planes. Or, setup a timer on your remote that cuts the throttle after say 30 seconds, The challenge is to get around an set point, like a tower, and land on a target. Each round you reduce the timer by 5 seconds? Or, a build off challenge, you get your normal RC electronics but the rest of the plane has to be built from recycled materials... only junk you would be throwing out, cool drink bottles, cling-wrap, etc. You could make this like the Redbull Flugtag challenge and see who can make the best glider. Or, RC painting. Sorry this is similar to the bomb dropping idea. Setup some canvas's as targets and drop paint packets on them. I'm sure if you ask people to send in ideas you'll get swamped :)

Arrestor wire carrier landings

Vor 10 Monate

Wire? I was thinking more like yarn that might break if the landing is a tad too fast. The tow hook would need to be friction fitted just in case the airframe was not able to handle the stress. Of course that could give rise to trying to ripe the hook out contest, lol.

Can you make a quad/hexacopter out of 4 quadcopters?

Vor 10 Monate
Watt Waster
Watt Waster

Yes, and that would make for some interesting configurations if one wanted to stack them, or in some other arrangement. The hard part would be controlling them with different boards wanting to do something slightly different. If the receivers could be bound to the same transmitter and tuned to match, it would work well. Of course that would be a lot of battery packs.

With all the PVC pipe frames in the yard, I was wondering why they didn't use them? Of course pool noodle frames might be a bit easier on the model airplane if they should clip one while trying to fly through. I see they have plywood about, and a strip painted would be a fine marker for the front wheels to touch as they do the bush pilot landing game. Seen aircraft doing the same thing with a flour line on the runway so it was easier to tell if the pilot touched the flour line on the landing attempt. The flour would puff into a little cloud if he did. Of course the rain might be an issue, lol.

Lots of folks are doing aerial cinematographic work with drones for various clients, mostly real estate jobs to help with sales and the gear isn't cheap for high quality. You can watch Youtube videos about it and some include tour guide stuff of famous landmarks. The catch is the governments of the nations are worried about various risks this can pose to citizens and government agencies. "Drones" are a big scare among non-RC pilots, so it won't be long before this sort of thing will need a license, flight plan, and all sorts of restrictions.
