The box interior has a shaped cutout (also cardboard) to hold the tool in place so the blade is protected. The box is non-corrugated cylinder board.  I need to preserve both the interior and exterior

Fly Powered Planes

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

What software do i need to make a 2D-pattern out off a 3D-model?

 what i want to do is a pattern of my "Ranger boots", say i need to measure the whole thing, make a 3D-model of it and then need the software to make planar layers out of it. aim is to get a pattern of my boots, cut a design into the pattern, print it on adhesive foil, put the foil on the boots/cover the boots and spray it. After removin the foil again, i should have the design on the boots; the foil is simply the negative of the design. (I thought bout "solid works" (engineering software) to design my boots, but i dunno much bout softwares' availability, so i'm askin.)

RC Car --- RC Plane?

Okay, so today at school, we learned about Bernoulli's principle and how wings help a plane fly. So I was wondering, if you built some good wings, attached them to an RC Car, and drove it off a ramp, would it glide for a little bit?

Flying car idea

I was thinking about building a flying car that would have most wingspan hidden under the car (pops out when activated) and the doors would be the tips. (What used to be the back doors would roll over van-style, and the back would otherwise be covered by sheet metal) In the back, there would be two vertical rudders and the spoiler would be cut into flaps for horizontal rudders. The thing would overall be powered by two helicopter jet engines. Once the flight system is activated, the gear shift (auto trans) would turn into the throttle, and the gas/brake pedals would turn into the rudder pedals. The idea is to make a flying car that still (when wings are stowed and trunk cover is closed) looks like a normal car. The question: is this possible?

Model Plane Location dropper

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.

Piloted solar plane unveiled

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

RC ducted fan plane

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.

micro camera for Rc planes

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?*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

Help on R/C plane workings

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.
