$TREE and FFF Homebuilt FPV pusher ideas
I have been looking around a while and have found collections of FFF and $Tree Foam plans but nothing dedicated to FPV plans.
Please Post plane designs to incldue specs on electronics and flight characteristics.
Ill Post my Build designed after rctestflights Micro Drone soon... Just have to get the pics of it...
(Figured to post here since some of the FPV guys seem to only like "Buy and Fly" planes.)

My Atom Drone V3
This is a fun plane, great power and FAST! (Until your wings break off... RIP ATOM DRONE V2)
These Pics are of my V1, the only difference is servo setup and a wood spar. V3 has a 1/4" wood dowel in its wing and servos for each aileron.
Motor: 1100kv 6-10A
Prop: 8060 (works better with SF 8048)
ESC: HK 20A
Servos: 9g x 3 (V1 uses only two)
Control: T9X with ER9x Frsky firmware, Frsky telem module
Battery: 3s 1000mAh (Gives about 10 min)
Wing Span: 30"
Wing Chord: 8"
Body width: 2"
Body Length: 12"
Overall Length 25"
I have flown this with dual 3s1000mAh batteries and it did fine.
Flying with a 3s 3000mAh battery was a little heavy but it flew ok still with out FPV gear.

I've got one I'm designing at the moment that looks like yours but twice the wingspan at 1.5m (60").
Specs are (in inch as I was inspired by an American not because I am one):
Chord 9" + 2" control surfaces
Distance between booms 15"
Designed to carry up to 800g of cargo
I have only built the wing so far as foamboard is expensive in Australia, around AU$10 for an A1 sheet (851*500mm).
I have some CAD drawings that I can post but I was meant to be asleep an hour ago so I'll get the shots later (takes ages to boot up AutoDesk).

Sorry for taking so long, forgot then remembered while I was shopping then forgot when I got back home (more than once)!
Here are the pics,
**EDIT** just found a few pic of me making the wing two weeks ago, it hasn't gotten much further, maybe I put the flap servos in thats it

wow, I totally forgot about this post....
I havent built a new drone since V4,5 and 6 failed... found out it was wing loading problems... Ill have to make a new one and test a new slower design... Im going to try to get one down to 15mph for easy flights since my larger flying wings are too fast for close proximity flying.

I sort of got away from FFF and $tree Foam and Hotwire my own wings now...
