Foam Plate Plane





Introduction: Foam Plate Plane

Are you tired of buying overpriced parts for your rc plane? Well this is for you I have saved over $50 with this plan

Step 1: Get the Materials

You need the following things, 1. Old styrofoam plate 2. Old airplane part 3. Hot glue You also need siscors

Step 2: Get a Templet of the Part

Tape up the old part as best you can or just design a new one

Step 3: Start Drawing

Trace or draw the part on the plate make sure you draw where the hinges are

Step 4: Cut Out

Cut out the part be carful don't cut where the hinges go

Step 5: Make Hinges

To make the hinges just run it over with a pincle a couple of times to push in the styrofoam but don't go all the way through and then test it

Step 6: Add Control Horn and Wheel

Mark where the control horns go and the wheel and install just like you usually do

Step 7: Install

Mine was a perfict fit but if yours is to thin you might have to ca some plates together to get it right but install like normal and go fly
