First of all, I really like planes. The idea of flying is just awesome ! The idea of overcoming your normal force which is caused by your mass is just so great ! No matter how you do it, no matter what you use - basic aerodinamics or a brushless motor with a propeller on it. I have a hobby - R/C planes. I am working on this hobby seriously. But the thing is, I prefer aerodinamics to the motor power.
So I study aerodinamics too.
By meaning study, I am not playing with the numbers - I spend my time on OAE's ( OrigamiAirEnforcer ) channel. I am trying to make paper airplanes. I make lots of paper airplanes and learn a lot from his channel. And of course, I learn from my mistakes too. :D Sometimes I try to engineer a model - I idolize the OAE :P :D Lots of the time, I end up wasting an A4 sheet... :/ But sometimes, when I work hard, I achive my goal. And this instructable ( my first ) is about this kinda achivement.
Some days before, I was thinking of a plane that can fly inside - but outside as well. I have contacted with OAE too. He adviced me to use his old planes. But the planes that he adviced me... Erhm :D Some of them werent capable of flying outside - I tried em. And the other part was... Ugh. I ended up wasting 10-12 A4 sheets. But nothing happened. It was far more complicated engineering. While trying not to annoy OAE, I understood that I had to do something MYSELF. So, using my aerodinamics information that I gained during spending time on OAE's channel, scitoys.com, my school physics teacher, my succesful attempts to construct an R/C airplane and my countless unsuccesful attempts to construct a R/C jet ( :P ) - I have finally constructed a plane that can fly in the middle of wind :
The Outsider .
To confess, it is not designed as a stunt plane. But the magic of aerodinamics just starts here :) With some little modifications, you will see The Outsider doing stunts like hell ! - Its all about the control surfaces ! :D
First of all, The Outsider is NOT a sloper. Its can glide but it is not designed as a glider.. So I had the gliding surface and added it to the aerodinamics part - which caused the CoG ( Center of Gravity ) of the plane to move infront of the plane. So, since the CoG is infront of the plane, It can slice through the wind efficiently ! :D I had a really long time with OAE's plane named "Vortex". I have studied the shapes of the aerodinamical wings in vortex. I used it in my plane. So, It is not as good as a normal delta wing in indoors but outdoors It flies really good. The thing is, the user of the plane must throw it INTO the wind ( just like an outdoors model ) so that it can use it's aerodinamics and fly. But it can fly indoors too. And it is really well indoors. But it is excellent outdoors ( 5 STARS WARNING : This model which i am instucting now is without staples. I thought it would be against the rules of the competition. Cause the guy i am racing with didint even used a scissors ... :D So it is an indoors version. If you wanna use it outdoors, contact me please. There is only a little work for it to fly outdoors like hell :D )
And by the way, my plane had 2 models. Cause I know that in someplaces in world, there is thermic winds that can make my plane like a bird and some places have really strong winds that can make my plane hit to the ground really hard. In my counrty, we have thermics :D But I dont know where you live so I thought about it changed it a little bit - not much. But, I am not gonna show it here because of the complicated directions which can mess up your mind and start to bore you. If you want the info ( which is really simple ), contact me.
Anyway from now, i wont talk about my plane nor will I talk about how did i got the idea :D Have fun !
( p.s. I am not a native speaker - so sorry for any mistakes. :/ )
Glue ( extremely optional :P )
A staple ( optional )
( note : We are not using the glue and the staple in this porject. But we can use them to make a real outsider. :D C-C-C-Contact me. ! :D )
