We've tested out a large number of wings supposedly designed for FPV. Just because you can fit all the gear in doesn't mean it will fly well...and most don't. This does !

When fixed wing FPV flying no doubt for me that installing a Flight Controller is a must-have. If only for the 'return to home' feature which mitigates loss of the FPV video feed while you are flying BUT you get so much more including in googles telemetry data and other cool features such as assisted launch, auto...

Piloted by Keith Mitchell, this model took 5 years of combined design and construction. This model aircraft was initially designed by Tony Nijhuis and part-built - was extensively rebuilt by Keith's modelling mate, Peter Johnson. Its initial flights were taken under the Large Model Association scheme (approved by...
