Sensei FS RTF - BOMB CHALLENGE!

by FliteTest | June 30, 2015 | (6) Posted in Challenges


Josh and Josh take a look at the Sensei FS RTF from Flyzone feature the WISE Flight Stabilization System.

The WISE 3-axis stabilization system will give beginner pilots the confidence to learn new maneuvers without the fear of crashing. 

The Sensei FS also features a "drop-door" that can be used to drop small items or setup to 'squeeze' the payload and hang it under the airplane.  

Peter decided to create a bomb drop that could be squeezed into the drop-door. 

By hot glueing a plastic card into the foam bomb and adding a bolt to catch the door and keep it in place until released.

Because Josh's arm has been in a cast, we decided to try a foot-flying challenge with the Sensei.

Peter rigged the "Easy" button to activate the WISE Fail Safe switch and the handheld switch controls the bomb bay.

Flying with your feet is a challenge in itself! But Josh and Peter were both able to get the airplane off the ground and try the drop as well as land it.

Josh has been flying with his feet for years, but this is a first for Peter.

The Sensei FS was the perfect platform to try this flying with feet challenge.

You guys should do an episode where you build a Fulton Recovery System using the Guinea Pig and a helium balloon. It would be really cool and I don't think anyone has tried this on an RC plane. Kinda like this:

I challenge you guys to do an episode where you make a working space shuttle that lunches off with hobby grade engines and you can glide the shuttle back down. That would be an awesome challenge.
