I got started in RC planes with your first maker trainer. My plane failed horribly! 😃but I still caught the bug and found a challenging enjoyable hobby. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Thank you for all your hard work!

Hi friends, I just made the maker hanger 2 .
But I have a problem the motor doesn't run and beeps randomly(the servos respond to the transmitter).

+Hassan Mahmood​ maybe your ESC failed... Try testing it with another motor if you have one.
Even if the ESC is brand new it doesn't mean that it cannot fail from the first time... contact whoever you bought your parts from.

Actually I have a query.we are using 360 degree servo motor for our project but it's not working according to our program.our motor is running continuously in one direction only but we want to run it in different angles with different delay.what should we do?

if you talk about rc servo your pulse width should be between 1ms and 2ms , mid point at 1.5 ms.
Did you try these values ?

What plane can fly with a single 980 kv motor?
I'm asking because I didn't find any higher rated motors in the local stores.

Dear friends who are working in or related to schools,
I am conducting a survey about Makerspaces in schools as a part of a research project at Zurich International School. It would be great if you can take a minute and fill out this survey for me. Thank you very much! http://goo.gl/forms/raLXiDd3od

I just built the maker trainer 2 but the wing isn't as neat as I wanted it. Im just wondering if it will have a big effect on the flight characteristics?

It might reduce the speed of your plane but you'll not even feel it.

Howdy people :)

time for something a bit different then :)  Yeah.. this video looks like a normal run-of-the-mill unboxing.. I know :P  The setup is quite non-standard though :) 
Can you guess what the experimental part of this build will be?
