RC-USAF.COM.....The sight is french, but they have a good photo with some specs. On the PRESENTATION page there is a pic of the pilot launching the snowspeeder, which gives a decent view of the rear.
That is cool.

it sort of looks like a commercial site, but I couldn't find anything on RC-USAF with a price, or any links to plans (free). I do like the snow speeder best out of all his collection.

reanimate Millenium Falcon!

yesterday I did the maiden flight with my new built Millenium Falcon, based on the plan from SGTalon.

First I built a downscaled Version to check out the CG.

I simplified the plan a bit, scaled it down to span 550 mm, length 720 mm, AUW now is 280 g, Motor Hacker A10-13L, GWS Prop 7035, 3S Lipo 900 mAh, built in Depron 6 mm, some CFK, some Kind of housing for the electronics.

Flies great! Thanks to SGTalon and all the other users, sharing their know how!



ups ...

I forgot, a video from the maiden will be edited the next time and the YouTube URL will be posted, wen itīs done. The Falcon will get some colour the next time also ;-)

Falcon painted with Acryl

List of Star Wars ships I'd love to see as RC aircraft.

Marauder Corvette

Preybird Fighter

Cloakshape Fighter

Alpha-class XG-1 Starwing (Someone did this one already, so awesome)

Missile Boat

And not Star Wars, but it'd still make an awesome RC aircraft.

Has anyone made a x-wing or tie fighter in the 10 to 15 inch range that actually flies because it would be very nice going with the imperial star destroyer by SGTalon (i found a load of tie fighter that don't fly well in that size but not any that fly well)

Hey everyone, I recently built a B Wing but still need to test it. I also designed up Darth Vader's Tie Advanced and am in the process of designing a Vulture Droid.

Here's a few pictures of my B Wing. It's not completely finished and I'm not even sure it will fly. I haven't even seen another person build one. Am I the first to give this a shot?

Can you make it glide? Of course you can make things fly that don't glide (helicopters?) but it starts requiring some combination of very clever engineering/software/magic.

I hope that does not sound too negative. If you are motivated, try it, observe what happens, make adjustments, repeat....

I threw it a few times and didn't glide too bad. I think it will fly. Should have it totally finished by Friday.

Hi Guys. I've found yea. I'm Shane. So when is anyone going to make a Land speeder that flaming HOVERS? Anyone got any bright ideas on this? Yes I'm on the skirtless hovercraft site. That's before anyone kindly suggests I go there lol. HELP and ideas required with sketches please. 'Oh, and I had thought about doing it with a quad but I was informed by a local flyer that they do not work well in ground effect and would not be ideally suited for it but please feel free to state if that's wrong . And I would like it to HOVER and NOT FLY. There's already one that does that. May the force be with You'.
