Step 3: Making the Frame With Electronics
Take about the length of the carbon rod and mount a pager motor with super glue at the tip of the rod.
Attach pieces of velcro on the rod to mount it on paper airplane. Stick the other side of velcro on the surface of paper airplane.
Step 4: Adding Details.
You can decorate your plane and add details. The photo shows the velcro mounted on plane's surface. In this way the electronics can be easily mounted on another plane.
Step 5: Adding Receiver, Battery and Servo
Use a light weight linear servo or magnetic servo for the rudder action. Cut a rectangle piece of foam or light wood and make it the vertical stabilizer or rudder. Connect the servo to the receiver by soldering. Also mount the receiver with double sided adhesive tape. Solder the connector for the battery on to the receiver. Charge the lipo battery using a separate charger. Now mount the whole structure on to the plane via velcro. Pulg in the battery and it is ready to fly.
