    My mate and I are hoping to start designing and flying our own basic RC foam aircraft. Living in the UK, would you have any ideas on where to begin in the construction of a basic model? – We’ve been watching a lot of your experimental videos and are very impressed with the quality of your skill in design and explanations. Would it be possible to tell us in slightly more detail on how to start?

    Many thanks.

    Hey Samm, great video! I am completely noob and I am looking to build my first quad (probably you remember a recent comment on thingiverse) I was looking through different transmitters and the frsky taranis is too much for my budget, and the FlySky looks a bit poor in quality?? anyway, I found also the turnigy 9xr, would you recommend it? or do you think I will be fine with the cheap flysky? Thanks

    I have a question: how do flying wing/delta wing servos work out. how do the servos recive information from two channels simultaneously? I’ve been researching these designs as I want to get back into the hobby but I haven’t seen anything about this yet.
