I would love somebody to build a 2 seater plane that is collapsable using a telescopic carbon fibre frame and wings covered with a balloon type inflatable skin and cockpit using helium as the inflating gas it would in theory be light enoug to be powered by a microlite engine. And after that a helicopter on the same principals.

Flies generally buzz about and don't do much besides feed the local spiders, but here's a a couple ways to put them to work by powering tiny airplanes. Check out the models below from the 70s or the video for something more recent to show you that, yes, this crazy idea actually works. Insect Power via Neatorama

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone of you could help me select which project I should make (my first RC plane) Here are the requirements:- 1. Must be easy. 2. Its body should be DIY and made of wood 3. It should be under $100 4. The instructions should be really clear Sorry I didnt have time to make a well written question neither did I have time to correct my grammar

Okay. I am building a plane from scratch designs (will post about it when i complete it) and I am planning on having a booster rocket to well to boost it. The only issue i have is with my igniter system. What im curious about is, would I be able to use a relay wired to an extra channel on my reciver? If so, what relay would be best? (voltage,amperes,etc) Thanks, Bud

Swiss adventurer Bertrand Piccard has unveiled a prototype of the solar-powered plane he hopes eventually to fly around the world.The vehicle, spanning 61m but weighing just 1,500kg, will undergo trials to prove it can fly through the night. The width of a jet airliner, but the weight of a family car, it is possibly the lightest plane (weight-for-size) ever to fly.When trials have finished - including a transatlantic flight planned for 2012 - the single-seat plane (designated "HB-SIA") should be able to circumnavigate the globe non-stop. Unfortunately, the pilot won't - at 20-25 knots, the flight should take three weeks, too long for a human to go without sleep. Instead, the flight is planned in five-day "hops", each ending with a change in pilot.Solar Impulse websiteBBC Story with video

In years past I had some printable model paper airplanes that looked like real planes, were aerodynamically shaped, had a penny in the nose for weight, and glided quite well. I have lost the folder in moving classrooms, and I can't seem to find them using google. Has anyone ever heard of these, and have a possible source? My favorite one was an older MIG.

My Mom recently aquired a new blender for christmas and I was able to salvage the very massive motor from it. it is a 120v 430w motor. I want to be able to make it remote control with an esc and some rc gear I have. I need help either creating one or somewhere to buy one that would work with this motor. I could also use arduino to control it if needed but would need a program. Thanks in advance for all help recieved.

If been wanting to film some of my Rc flights iv been thinking of two ways to do this: A.) buy a mini camera (not wireless could cause interference with other planes or mine although it should only affect 2.4GHZ or spreed spectrum channels which are designed to handle this kind of interference but i dont want to cause any accidents) or B.) Buy a cheep digital camera and mount it to plane Things to consider:Any thing will add weight to the plane which will affect balance (to solve this add weight till balance)I want to avoid wireless. How to power; battery's weight a lot and take up lots of spaceDragSize of cameraIf i do use micro camera where will it record too?Dose any one have any suggestions or ideas on the best way to do this on the cheep?Original form (it was origanaly posted in that group but it got separated) *update* i found a Camera called the flip video camera it has every thing iv been looking for its cheep about 150$, has a tripod mount, records 60 min of video, comes with editing software, runs on 2 AA batteries, and has a small (1.5inch) Lcd screen

Hi guys I am looking for some help, I am hoping to create a model plane/helicopter which will rotate on an arm (or fly for real). As it rotates (or flies) it will pass a fixed point on the ground and release its cargo onto the ground below. The fixed point must communicate in some way with the plane/helicopter to show that the location can be moved and the planes cargo will drop to the new location. It is a tricky task. I am also restricted in size - my entire project cannot be larger than 500mm All helpful ideas would be HUGELY appreciated.

I am working on an rc plane and wondered if there is a ratio between propeller size to wing size, wing size to lift, or weight to wing size. Thanks!
Question by DELETED_afw11 | last reply
This is what happens when I get my hands on C.A.D!!!! And this is a pic of the RC plane I am in the works of designing. I dont have the ratios to make everything the proper size so I had to estimate. I plan on having it done by the end of my school year in September.

I have been trying on and off with the idea that the next generation knex, which are smaller and lighter would make a great plane. I realize that it will need something to cover the wings and a propellar but I think it may be possible. Any other ideas, thoughts, or tips are muchly appreciated.

Ok so I am constructing a scratch airplane as some of you may have read on m other questions. I have reached another dilemma, whether or not a moving rudder is completely crucial. I'm thinking i could get away with just having a stabalizer fin in place of the rudder. Any help from you pros? Thanks, Bud
Question by budhaztm | last reply
There are lots of Instructables about making paper planes. This is a Good Thing. Like any other group of Instructables, they vary in quality from the appalling to the brilliant, but they almost all share the same Bad Thing. For projects where the behaviour of the finished item is all-important, they do not have a video to demonstrate the different throwing styles required and the expected flight characteristics. Please, paper engineers, can we have video of the flights?

Question by hardfourteen | last reply
This is my first time on the site and first time with trying to build a rc anything. My mind is so scrambled due to constant searching online and I still don't know where to start. First, I thought of building a brushless motor. Seeing some online looks awesome. Just some wire, rod and a magnet to a battery. But I do not know the size of battery nor how the size of the wire will change my project. Second, it would be fun to have my PS2 controller, control the heli or plane I choose to build. Is this possible. Third, can I use a motor from a cheap heli in a plane and have control over the speed? Lastly for now, is there a way to figure what motor I need if I was going to build a slow flyer vs a outdoor micro flyer? I have been looking at weight mostly and don't know if I need to be that concerned. Please help if you dare to take me on as a challenge case.
