Flite Test: RC Planes - Drones - Multirotors

Designing your own RC airplane can be one of the most satisfying experiences in this hobby. Today we talk about some things such as: why design scratch builds? There is so much great "ready to fly" stuff out there, why bother with your own creation? Where does the idea for a design start? What programs are best? What are some common problems you find once you take the airplane out for the first time? And much, much more!
