How about a Vladmir's Models ELF DLG . . . this is a 1m wingspan Rudder/Elevator 2 channel model . . . perfect (and low cost) for getting into DLG and learning to thermal.

How bout this for the beginners series... Lessons on ESC, battery and motor combos. Go over each component separately, what all the numbers mean and such, then tell us why you can and can't use certain motors with certain batteries and ESC's. I'd give examples, but I don't know enough about all of those things to give one! I'd love for you guys to put it into simpler terms that us newbies can understand. Thanks for all of the awesome stuff. I'll be flying my first Nutball this weekend with my dad and my kids, building memories!

Great! Do some reviews on HobbyZone Tx-R planes like the F4 and P51, etc. Also do some swappable builds on more WWII warbirds. Very good stuff guys, I check this site dozens of times a day, as do many others I believe. Keep up the good work.

Hi Guys, I would like to know when you will be getting back to designing, building, and downloading building plans for us to build. I am anxious for the next installment of the "Disney Planes" series of scratch builds. If not any more of "Planes" designs, then anything else in the swappable line would be good. Thanks

Hey guys, I would like to see a Build / Tune / Fly episode on the TITAN tricopter by Fortis Airframes (fortisairframes.com). This is my first RC model, I went with a tricopter after I saw your episode "Tricopter vs. Quadcopter" where you answered the viewer questions about which multirotor you prefer, and you both said "Tricopter"! I'm having some tuning issues and I'd also like to see how you run the wiring. I'm trying to fly the APM 2.5.

I'm sure Zach with Fortis Airframes would be happy to work with you on getting a model kit for the build episode. Thanks!!

I had a great time at the open house today! It was a real pleasure meeting Chad, Josh, and David and being able to thank them personally for everything they've done. Thanks as well to everyone behind the scenes at Flite Test, you guys deserve all the success in the world. I also enjoyed showing off my Spitfire. :)

Josh, I recently watched one of your videos from a while ago when you were interested in 3d flight. Are you still interested in it? if you are i can tell you that for indoor, the crack yak series from twisted hobby is pretty hard to beat, in my opinion.
