Description

We welcome the all new the ProXy!  This radical FPV-focused airplane which is designed to merge everything we love about flying 3D foamies, FPV quad copters, and Twisted Hobbys creativity, enabling new flying styles and possibilities.  Fly inverted through a race gate, hit a gap between trees knife edge, or just effortlessly cruise over the tree tops exploring.  Careful attention has been paid to the entire aerodynamic design to eliminate the keep the ProXy incredibly stable and eliminate the wagging normally associated with flying wings and heavier platforms. Lots of side area and full rudder control means you can fly continuous knife edge or even make totally flat turns like a race car.  Not lined up with that gap?  Just a breath of rudder will have you headed in the right direction.

The ProXy has a much lower flying speed than other FPV airplanes, meaning it is right at home in the tree-filled park or parking lot normally reserved for just quads, and with its single rear-mounted propeller it is far safer than other fixed wing platforms, harmlessly bouncing off of obstacles, usually with no damage.  Oversized foam wheels not only enable touch and goes and controlled landings, but also eliminate the most troublesome and frustrating part of fixed wing FPV flying: hand launching.  Just put on your goggles, goose the throttle, give a touch of up elevator, and the ProXy will cleanly rise off of pavement, grass, a dirt road, or any reasonable surface.

 

Flying on the Elan 2205-2600 motor and a cheap 3S 450-1000 mAh battery (we like 850's), the ProXy is affordable to get in the air and burn pack after pack with.  It's also remarkably flexible for set-up and flies great with nothing but a simple receiver, a stabilizing receiver, or go all-out with a flight controller and iNav or Betaflight.  For a camera set-up, the ProXy delivers a great experience with a simple all-in-one unit, or a more sophisticated HD recording camera like a RunCam Split or Caddx Tarsier with a seperate video transmitter.  Of course, it's a great line of sight sport plane and cruiser as well!   Amateur Radio Device Info and Warnings:

    Great plane to build and fly

    The main body of the plane I build per video very easily. The electronics, servos I did my own way. I used 2g servos which always work great unless they won't center which I know from the beginning. The lighter servos mean easier to get cg right, can place servo right next to control surface, and can use a lighter battery too. My motor weighed 16g and had 3000 kv. Plane flew fantastic. A real keeper.

    Decent build

    This plane went together pretty good except a couple of things that went wrong. The 3d printed control horns on the ailerons broke because instructions say to put the ball link side on the aileron side instead of the servo side and when you tighten the screw, the control horn just snapped in half. Good thing I had my own wood control horns. Second, the electronics tray was warped so it was hard to glue down. If you have patience and time to build this plane I would definitely recommend.
