I created Pogo.

Translation takes time a little.
Please wait a little.

Congratulation Mr. Sekiai, another amazing project following Southern X-3, My hat’s off to you!!!

To me personally, when converted to RC, VTOL plane like XFY-1 is the only “3D” RC airplane that makes sense; other 3D planes are not flying realistically.

By the way, the video is awesome, the best 3D piloting skill I’ve ever seen.
(Show me another 3D plane that can race on the floor on her tail end!)

nice Pogo.

I seem to recall a thread regarding a counter rotating GWS hacked eps gb in the power systems board. Nice idea , would really give the pogo a scale touch. It looks like a fun plane to fly !

Thank you very much!
My Pogo is hovered easily and lands.
The wheels attached to the tail are very important.

Excellent video and flying. You should be proud! Hard to top the Southern-X, but you may have done it!

Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. I built a Pogo last year, but
it is just a fraction of what you did. I'm certainly pleased to
see your XFY-1 Pogo.

What motor are you using in it? I have one with a CD Rom motor. More than enough power.

It is the kit of CD motor.

Probably, new CD motor kit will be still higher-performance.
