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:

    WEEEEEEE

    I did the maiden flight today! It's the turbo hatchback of airplanes, it's the most fun you can have below 30mph! Not a thrill ride line of sight but maybe my most fun aircraft fpv. I love having rudder control and landing gear. I would suggest ironing laminate on the struts and wing tips. Laminate on the whole thing probably wouldn't be a waste of time. 850 3s is perfect but it tolerated slightly heavier batteries. Some kind of camera protection for landing with the landing gear up would be good idea, but I do love not worrying about my electronics overheating. This plane is larger than I expected but large planes fly better. Lastly I'm not I love with the Van Halen inspired graphics and 'edgey' styling that looks like it was designed by me when I was 12, but the looks don't bother me at all when I'm looking through the fpv goggles

    The EPP cut lines and alignment was right on the mark. Carbon fiber bracing and support is done very well on this model ... you've done well to remove that inherent twist along the frame using soft foam between the tail section and wing surface. Much improved over some of your earlier builds.

    Servo linkage... particularity the ultra frail stand-off's is and remains a big disappointment. After a day of careful glue and assembly she started breaking supports running it on a stand/servo tester. Once you do break one there is no way to just replace it without cutting the carbon fiber rod.

    As a result I ended up using .032 wire and tube linkage and foam stand-off's without fail. This DOES hold up and will take a hit with a much better return. A side benefit is gluing this method together adds even further support along the tail section and tightened her up very well. The cost in weight and volume is minimal reference what you return in the confidence she's not going to break something so simple when you do take a hit.
