Introduction: How to Build a Battery Powered Plane (Balsa Wood Airplane)

A "how to" guide showing how to make your own battery powered balsa wood airplane. I used my 24" plane shown in a prior tutorial in this video. You can find everything you need to make it at RadioShack. Thanks for watching and feel free to comment below!

, and in case of making a remote control to control the plane, how would you stop, or turn off the plain.

And what would be thebcost, and where did you buy the motor?

how may I control the airplane?

And in what classification this would be in, in a science project?

И куда же улетел твой самолет? Ваше видео это полная глупость!

Really cool project and video.

I would like to ask a question with your permission.

Is there a way to rotate the propeller slower?

I want to build a carousel toy working with this motor circuit. Anyone help me?

(may be 1.5V motor and battery?)

Hmmm, good question. One way to slow it down would be to use a sprocket and chain (or rubber band). The carousel would have to be attached to a large diameter cog or wheel, which would make the carousel spin more slowly. Just an idea. Go into Radio Shack or a hobby store, and ask the employees if there is a way to do this (cause I'm sure there is). Thanks for watching!

Thank you again for your interest and response. Have a nice day ;)

Nice rich! If you attach some servos and a receiver to it, you could fly it RC style!

Hey thanks, I might try that!
