Step 8: GO FLYING!!!

You are done. Go flying. These planes are light and have very little surface area resistance so they fly well. With the right brushless motor these planes can takeoff vertically right out of your hand.

<p>hot glue gun was only thing use to stick plane together... And zippy ties were used to make all the flaps.. It's been crashed multiple times and still flys awesomely ?? </p>
<p>core flute 3D plane ? </p>
<p>just use plastic core flute... Any bottle shop or realestate place should have old signs they can give u for free.... I made a 3D plane and it flys amazing... 1000kv motor($5-$10) with 9x6 prop($1.50) , 30amp ESC($5-$10), 4 x 9g servos($2-$3each) and radio and reicever ($$$Sky's the limit)</p>
Tak
Plz reply
Where is the radio and where is the servo for aileron and how is the servo for tail fixed
Can u tell me how r the parts mounted
<p>Hey! I need the link for making this model!</p>
<p>Hi Can you give me detail plan for making this plane</p>
<p>pretty cool</p>
<p>can i get the model imean how much centimiters or inches</p><p>just that it's p coooooool</p>
can I use android and USB dongle in plane to control
<p>this is epic tho it doesn't look very strong and a crash would mangle it </p>
<p>While this is really nice one some things that will make it better is if the front edge of the wings are made less thicker, at-least not flat. That will help the lift and also speed. But overall its good. </p>
<p>how many money did you spend for this</p>
<p>Just a thought... 1/2&quot; dia. Balsa Half-Round on the leading edges would significantly reduce drag. </p>
<p>how many kv motor and how many amps esc anf how many v battery is been used to make rc plane</p><p>and wht is the correct name for that form please let me know</p>
What kv brushless motor , what amps esc and how many v battery should be used for making a small rc plane
<p>A nice RC aircraft . Very easy to make </p>
<p>will you give me design and requirement</p>
<p>which pcb have you used??</p>
<p>I'd like to make your model. I am having trouble getting the plans to load from foam factory. Is there any way you could send me the drawings so that I can print them out.</p><p>Thanks!!!!!!!!</p>
<p>Is it necessary that the wing should be aerofoil in shape??????</p>
Im kind of a newb with rc stuff so would u recomend I build this model, or should I build a different/easier model?
<p>This is a fine trainer but there are better models out there. Google &quot;Foam Trainer Homemade&quot;</p>
i have no rc only foam motors and battries wires what isthey needed to made this plane<br>
<p>Transmitter, reciever, servos, lipo battery, brushless motor, brushless speed controller</p>
It might be easier to cut the foam with a hot wire foam cutter, like this:<br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Hot-Wire-Foam-Cutting-Nunchucks/
<p>I use a foam cutter for similar planes and it works great.</p>
I have never built an airplane before but i have made robots so i have a Hitec Laser 4, a few standard size servos and some Ni-Mh batteries (1600 mah 9.6v and 8.4v) im wondering if these servos and batteries are too big, if so what ones should i use, and also what size motor should i get, i have no clue what to look for in a motor or prop.
<p>The servos are too big but the battery could work though no optimal. For a motor look for a brushless 1100kv motor around 60g with a 30A speed controller.</p>
What type of servis
<p>Use 9g micro servos. They are about 3$ on hobbyking.</p>
Hey do we have to do any programing while conecting electronics to transmiter and reciever...??
<p>If you spend around 60-70$ you can buy an Orange Rx computer radio. With this you can program deflection and change what happens with certain stick inputs. For the beginner though a cheap 25-30$ radio should be fine.</p>
No, unless you create a custom flight controller, you rarely ever have to know any programming in the R/C hobby, hope this helped
what kind of motor do you use?
<p>Brushless outrunner ~1000kv</p>
<p>Central New York doesn't give many &quot;perfect&quot; flying days, so I've been flying the crud out of multirotors, I'm just getting into planes. I'd rather build and fly foamies because I know I'm going to crash. And you can pick up 20&quot; x 30&quot; sheets for $.99 and Dollar Tree or Dollar General. There's tons of free plans out there, things that aren't for beginners and things for the more advanced pilots. If you want a good amount of plans for free (with the option to purchase kits)- check out www.flitetest.com. I flew a Nutball for the longest time. They're easy to fly and they take a beating. As far as electronics go- check out Amazon. I picked up a set of 4 motor/ ESC sets for $30. They're more for multirotors, but they work fine on smaller foamies. I've seen cheaper receivers on Amazon, but you'd need your own transmitter. You can also pick up smaller 5-9 gram servos for cheap as well. Which are perfect for foamies. As long as you do the research, anything can be found cheap enough. </p>
<p>u can give me the cm of this diagram plz my bro</p>
<p>I am a starter guys, somebody pls tell me what is 'ESC' and 'radio' in this instructable </p>
<p>ESC = Electronic Speed Controller Radio = remote control The radio sends signals to your flight controller, the flight controller controls servos and is connected by a plug into the esc. The esc is hooked to the battery and flight controller unless it has more than one motor. The esc connects to the motor giving it the power it needs.</p>
how much is the range of cost of making this<br>
I guess somewhere around $400 dollars if you have to buy everything.
<p>$400? No way! If you are a very beginner and have nothing yet to start in the hobby, this is +- what you gonna need: Transmitter and receiver $40, 3 servos $10, Esc $10, motor+ propeller $15, Lippo battery $10, few extra things $15. So around $100. All this you can find at ebay, hobbyking, banggood and many other online places.</p>
what do u use to glue it together??? <br>pva or hot glue gun?
Hot glue is not too heavy, as long as you dont overuse it.
I would think that hot glue would be too heavy and pva on foam, too weak. I would buy a contact glue.
Oh man you did a great job i really appriciate you for this foam <a href="http://www.nitrotek.fr/avions-rc.html" rel="nofollow">RC airplane</a> ypour post is very helpful and this is great way to build an cheap Rc plane thanks for shairng this post.
For this size plane a mini servo works well. Approximately 11-15 grams
