MAKE Magazine and Lucas Weakley have teamed up to bring you Maker Hangar, a 15-episode tutorial series that will teach you everything you need to know to build and fly this custom RC plane, the Maker Trainer. The first installment airs July 11th and don’t miss Lucas Weakly on Maker Camp as a Guest Maker! New installments will[…]Read More
httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tt_QMm2SEjQ It’s a baby swappable! They are awesome to fly and I will work on getting the plans and build videos up soon. Sorry for the late video but, family has taken a lot of time away from the show and my time to work on it. Hope you enjoy
Here’s a new plane that I have been working on, its called the KFPV450 because it is going to have a KFm4 airfoil, will fly FPV and has a 50 inch wingspan. The design is by me, and is roughly based off of the ZII.

A little while ago I did an interview with Dick Kline. There I told everyone about the project I was going to do, which was to test the KF airfoils and compare them to a traditional airfoil (an Armin wing). So lets start building!
Recently, I purchased a 1/3-inch SONY CCD Video Camera from Hobby King for an FPV backpack so that I can fly FPV on all my planes. When it finally came in the mail, I took the camera out and its corresponding cable.
Over the summer, when my family was getting ready to go to Key West, I knew I was going to bring my tricopter and I would be flying over water. I didn’t want my precious tricopter to sink if I were to crash over water, so I made these.
httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9_KMEo8gcY It is unfortunate my plane crashed, but this was the first time I had ever crashed with this plane, so I call that a success. This is definitely not the last time you will see this plane. Music: We Swarm By: The Glitch Mob
Ever since I have used a GoPro on my tricopter I have been trying to eliminate the vibrations that the motors and propellers cause. I have balanced all the motors and propellers to the best of my abilities but that is proven to not be enough on its own. Now I need a better vibration[…]Read More
