Intro: 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?

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

    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!

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