In this episode of FliteTest I give my views on the classic Bird of time
In this video I teach Josh Bixler how to cut advanced shapes with the hotwire cutter
After many, many hours of building my latest creation is finally alive!
Powered by a 10 blade ChangeSun 70mm fan it is a rocket in the air
Check out the video where Josh and Josh review and fly it:
Here is a link to the complete build log of the Viggen, along with plans fo the formers:
Hi guys! I recorded a Tricopter V2.6HV Build video for Flitetest. In this build I use 1/2 inch (12mm) booms on the original tricopter body, and I show how to compensate the geometry for that.
I also show how to build the vibration dampening system. So check it out:
In this video I talk more about the back story of the space mission:
In this Q&A Josh and I discuss the difference in flying a tricopter and a quadcopter
Check out my latest crazy build on the latest FliteTest episode:
A full build log of the EDF Afterburner can be found here

The tricopter frames I make have now found a new home.
I will now be selling them through the Flite Test webshop instead of here.
What this will mean for you as a costumer is lower price and much faster handling time. Which means that you will get your frame much quicker.
Also the top frame now has my signature laser etched into it!
I would like to thank all of you that have bought or is buying a frame from me. Without your support I wouldn’t have been able to experiment or make projects. It is you that makes me able to do what I do and share it with you.
This is my attempt to send a FPV glider into the edge of space and glide it back to earth via a video link.

The Tricopter V2.6HV build is almost done. I just added 20 more pictures covering the FPV setup.
Yet another Tricopter!? Yes! I needed a backup tricopter for a video shoot, so I decided to build one with high quality components, too see if there is any difference in performance.
Sorry for not posting in a while guys. I’ve been crazy busy at my new job on Flitetest
Working on Flitetest presents a lot of interesting opportunities. For instance, I happen to find a box full of different rocket motors while working down in the basement one day. Naturally, with my curious affliction to explosives and rockets, I dropped everything I was currently working on to explore what fun my newly found treasure could bring. Rummaging around I soon found a good airplane to sacrifice to the god of fun and awesomeness.
After shooting some other Flitetest material I asked if they guys wouldn’t mind staying for a bit longer and capture my new rocket plane, and here is the resulting video:
I have a lot more fun stuff for you guys. I’m currently working on a bunch of projects that I think many of you would appreciate. So stay tuned!
I just finished up the build log of the Overkill FPV ground station. 54 pictures and 1500 words of ground station goodness awaits you.
