Airplane Experts! I am making an airplane fly without the use of RC. Need Help!

I need brand recommendations and wing measurements so it can fly!!! Anything else about small electric airplanes will be fine! How would you connect three different electric motors to a LIPO battery?

Robot goes on an airplane!

Robot and I went flying the other day, so we took a picture together. Whenever I wear it out in public, I hope somebody will come up to me and say that they're a member, too. Hasn't happened yet. I look a tad bit tired(/retarded)...since i'd been flying all day. EDIT: Yeah, I look really retarded in that picture...but at least Robot looks groovy!

Fight Simulator

I just had a great Idea last night. Okay, I think we've all seen those $250,000 homemade flight simulators built by people with just a wee bit too much time on their hands (like anyone who goes on instructables). One of the main reasons these are expensive, other than the computer themselves, is the fact that there are multiple LCD screens surrounding the pilot. These things cost a few pretty pennies, so this is where my idea comes in. The first thing you would need to do, would be to arrange some semi-opaque plastic panels where you would usually have the LCD displays. They need to be opaque enough that you can't see through them, but clear enough to let a good bit of light through. In other words, they need to be translucent, not transparent. The second thing would be computer software. It needs to be able to totally invert your desktop display. You could do this with hardware, but it would be a waste of time and materials. Connected to your computer would be a digital projector, which is where all of the magic of this project comes together. You run the projector through a prism (what kind, anyone?), to slightly warp the projected image. You need this warpage (is that a word?), to counteract the different angles of the plastic panels. The projector is set up in front of the "cockpit," projecting its inverted, warped image at it. You can see the images on the inside, because you chose the correct opacity, right? The hope behind this idea, is that it is much cheaper to have 1 digital projector, than it is to have multiple LCDs. Thanks! MDJ

Paper Airplane Contest 5 (Closed)

Although my previous PAC4 competition failed to attract any entries, I have decided to reboot it—with relaxed specifications. Paper Airplane Contest 5 (PAC5) takes a step back, decreasing the minimum range requirement by 10%, and the decreasing the longevity requirement by 33%. I specifically designed this contest to appeal to the concerns of those who analyzed the specifications of PAC4. For this contest, the specification is again for a long range plane. Requirements: 1. Aircraft Requirements: • Ability to fly at least 50 feet from a launch height of 5 feet or higher • Durability to fly at least 20 flights • Provisions for landing gear and/or skids (not required for flying wings) • Use of less than 8 inches of Scotch tape in construction • Use of less than 3 pieces of 8.5 by 11 inch (A4) paper in construction • Usage of glue or wood (excluding toothpicks) is prohibited • Aircraft must be named 2. Instructables Requirements: • 1 page strictly devoted to materials required in construction • 1 page explaining how to fly the aircraft • The instructable's license must be: "Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa)" • This sentence and link must be displayed on your entry's intro page: “This instructable is an entry in Paper Airplane Contest 5 (https://www.instructables.com/community/Paper-Airplane-Contest-5/)” Prizes: For this contest I will award the publishers of the top 5 performing paper airplanes* one patch each. However, unlike previous contests, each patch will feature its respective aircraft, rather than medals. The first place winner will also receive a 3 month Instructables Pro membership. *Multiple entries are allowed. To keep the distribution of patches wide however, each entrant can only win one prize. How to Enter: To enter this contest, you must send me a private message entitled “My Paper Airplane [Member Name Here]” with your instructable's URL included. I will then put the link and author's name onto a list on this topic under "Entries". Judging: For this contest, I have decided that I will judge all the planes myself based on abilities. I have decided this way because I believe judging on performance rather than shape is a more objective approach. The contest begins Friday, May 27, 2011 and ends Thursday, June 30, 2011. Entries must be published before Thursday, June 30, 2011. From July 1 to July 3, I will be judging all entries. I will announce the winners of the contest on Tuesday, July 5, 2011 and issue them their prizes Wednesday, July 6, 2011. Entries: DJ Radio: "Super Bullet" (https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Super-bullet-Possibly-the-fastest-paper-air/) The Skinnerz: "Goose" (https://www.instructables.com/id/Goose-Paper-Glider/) heavyfire88: "The 50 Calb."

How to Fly for Sooper Freaking Cheap!!

Are you between 18 and 22 RIGHT NOW? You're in luck.I found this deal by AirTran called "X-Fares"You just show up at their ticket counter and say, "Hey! I wanna get to _ with your X-Fares program!" And they charge you only $70 per leg. I showed up in Boston 40 minutes before a flight, and got to San Francisco that same night, in two legs, with no delays. Do it! Travel the country! Check out their blackout dates before you go. Some ("long haul") legs cost $100 instead of $70.http://www.airtranu.com/airtran_u.aspx

Does Anyone have an old .10 or .15 size nitro airplane engine??

Hello, I am a fourteen year old young man who is new into the world of R/C airplanes and am wondering if anyone has an old .10 or .15 size nitro airplane engine laying around that I could have. I have built my own airplane out of foam board with a 28 inch wingspan and an 18 inch fuselage. It has servos and control lines leading to the elevator and rudder. Built to be a 3 Channel but can easily be made to be a 4. Also wondering if anyone has any clevises or control horns and random parts like that. I can provide pics of my plane upon request. Also looking for 3 or 4 channel radio and receiver. I have Max O.S. 60cc that can be offered as partial trade. I live in Little Rock Arkansas.Thanks Everyone!!!

MIT team designs plane that uses 70% less fuel

Planes use a massive amount of fuel to move passengers and cargo around the world. A new design from an MIT team could cut this fuel usage by 70%. This is great news and would make flights cheaper and pump out a lot less carbon. The bad news is that air traffic is expected to double in the next 30 years and the earliest these designs would be in the air is 2035. MIT designed their D-series as a 180 passenger aircraft meant to replace the domestic 737 market. Conventional airplanes utilize a single fuselage design, while the D-series uses two partial tubular shapes placed beside each other — which accounts for the bubble nickname. The plane utilizes a host of technological advances to decrease its fuel consumption. It has thinner longer wings and a smaller tail and engine placement at the rear of the plane instead of on the wings. All of these features account for part of the reduction in fuel usage.

Paper Airplane Challenge 1 (Closed)

This contest has been specifically drawn up for contenders of my previous contests, whom expressed interest in participating in further competitions. (However, it is by no means exclusive to them, anyone can enter!) Having already broken from tradition in name, I have decided to specify point values for the individual requirements too.

Aircraft Requirements: • Ability to: (A) fly at least 30 feet; (B) perform at least one full loop, wingover and/or half Cuban eight and fly a further 15 feet; and (C) carry at least four 100mg toothpicks (20 pts each; 60 pts total) • Up to three differently configured variants can be submitted to fill the A, B and C capabilities. Between variants there must be at least 40% commonality in construction (2 of 5 steps are identical). (5 pts) • Durability in each airframe to fly at least 20 flights (5 pts) • Use of less than 15 inches (0.381 meters) of tape in the construction of all aircraft  (5 pts) • Use of less than 6 pieces of 8.5 by 11 inch (A4) paper in the construction of all aircraft (5 pts) • Aircraft must be named (if there are multiple variations, identify each distinctly with names and/or designations) (5 pts) (This totals to 85 points possible for the aircraft.) 2. Instructable Requirements: • 1 page (not the intro page) strictly devoted to materials required in construction (4 pts) • 1 page explaining how to fly the aircraft (if there are multiple variants, illustrate how to fly each if necessary) (4 pts) • The instructables’ license(s) must be: "Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa)". Entries not wholly original must honor licensing agreements associated with the original publisher(s). (4 pts) • This sentence and link must be displayed on your entry's intro page: "This instructable is an entry in Paper Airplane Challenge 1." (3 pts) (This totals to 15 points possible for the aircraft’s instructable; 100 points possible for the entry as a whole.)

Paper Airplane Contest 6 (Closed)

To coincide with the publishing of my one hundredth instructable, I am hosting a sixth paper airplane contest (PAC6). However, unlike my previous contests, this one is aimed at origami aviators just beginning their flights. Although the previous “PAC5” has yet to conclude, I feel it is an appropriate time to start up another contest, due to the different aims of the two. For this contest, the specification is for a trainer paper airplane. Requirements: 1. Aircraft Requirements: • Ability to fly at least 25 feet (7.62 meters) from a launch height of 5 feet or higher • Durability to fly at least 25 feet, at least 15 times • At least two of the following must be featured on your aircraft: flaps, elevators, rudders, ailerons, spoilers, elevons, decelerons, spoilerons, flaperons, air brakes, slots, and/or slats • Allowed materials include: 2 sheets of 8.5 by 11 inch (A4) paper, 8 inches of Scotch tape, scissors, a stapler, 5 staples, a ruler, a pencil, pen, and 2 paper clips • Aircraft must be named 2. Instructables Requirements: • 1 page (not the intro page) devoted solely to materials required in construction • 1 page explaining how to fly the aircraft • The instructable's license must be: "Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa)" • This sentence and link must be displayed on your entry's intro page: “This instructable is an entry in Paper Airplane Contest 6 (https://www.instructables.com/community/Paper-Airplane-Contest-6/)” Prizes: For this contest I will award the publishers of the top 5 performing paper airplanes* one patch each. However, unlike previous contests, each patch will feature its respective aircraft, rather than medals. The first place winner will also receive a 3 month Instructables Pro membership. *Multiple entries are allowed. To keep the distribution of patches wide however, each entrant can only win one prize. How to Enter: To enter this contest, you must send me a private message entitled “My NGT Paper Airplane [Member Name Here]” with your instructable's URL included. (The “NGT” acronym refers to Next Generation Trainer, in order to distinguish it from PAC5 entries). I will then put the link and author's name onto a list on this topic under "Entries". Judging: I have decided that I will judge all the planes myself based on abilities. I have decided this way because I believe judging on performance and suitability, rather than shape, is a more objective approach. The contest begins Friday, June 17, 2011 and ends Friday, July 15, 2011. Entries must be published before Friday, July 15, 2011. From July 16 to July 18, I will be judging all entries.

Challenge to good model makers

Hey guys, I have a challenge to the good model makers on Instructables.  I need a small replica airplane for a project I'm working on. The smaller the better, the more detailed the better. Feel free to use whatever knex parts you want: minis, bricks, ect...   I could probably build one myself, but I'll give some of you guys the chance to help me out and work with me. Plus I really don't like building models.  If yours is the best I'll private message you what I'm building, or send you a patch, or whatever you want. I really don't care.  I just want to work with some of the new people here.  Anyone is welcome. Just post a picture and I'll pick which one will work best.  Remember smaller the better. Thanks guys, I'm excited to see what we come up with. Killer~SafeCracker

Model airplane problem

I need help.  My neighbor is dive bombing people on horseback with his model airplane.  He is going to get someone killed.  I've tried to reason with him and have spoken to the police.  I'd like to see if there is a way to ground his plane when it comes on my property while I work on a nuisance/trespass case.  Yesterday he was flying it 6 acres in my property right over people's heads while they tried to ride.  I don't mind him flying it but doing flips etc on my land is unacceptable.  Please help!!!

3ch rc ciruit board

I would like to build my own rc airplane. I already know how to build the fuselage and the wings. I also have the landing gear. I have a 27mhz rc circuit from an old rc car. The problem is the car was only a 2ch board. I need a 3ch transmitter and receiver. (Throttle, left/right, up/down). I'll be honest, I don't know much about circuit boards, but I can learn. Does anyone know how to make the circuit board for this, or where I can get a custom board made for me?

Cool airplane model made from scratch

Another interesting story from Africa about handmade goods. I'd love to get one of these.Phillip Isohe is a metal fabricator in the jua kali, non-traditional industrial sector, in Kenya. In his spare time he builds models of airplanes and buses. This seems to be an extension of what many of us did while growing up in Africa - building wire, or tin can, cars. What's most interesting is the excruciating attention to detail that he puts into each one. In fact, they each have motors with working lights, steering, engine and interiors. full story

Paper Airplane Contest 8 (Closed)

As summer ends and school begins, the need for great paper airplanes increases again. Because of that, I have decided to attempt to coax instructablers everywhere into designing a new paper airplane to perform common requirements. In addition, I have decided to increase the prize values. Instead of the first place being a 3 month Ibles Pro Membership, I have raised it to a 1 Year Ibles Pro membership. Perhaps that will stir interest among this site's many innovative creators, eh? :) For this contest, the specifications are for a multirole airplane. Requirements: 1. Aircraft Requirements: • Ability to: (A) fly at least 50 feet; (B) perform at least one full loop, wingover and/or half Cuban eight and fly a further 15 feet; and (C) carry at least four 100mg toothpicks • Up to three differently configured variants can be submitted to fill the A, B and C capabilities. Between these three there must be at least 60% commonality in construction. • Durability to fly at least 20 flights • Use of less than 15 inches (0.381 meters) of tape in construction • Use of less than 6 pieces of 8.5 by 11 inch (A4) paper in construction • Aircraft must be named (if there are multiple variations, identify each distinctly) 2. Instructable Requirements: • 1 page (not the intro page) strictly devoted to materials required in construction • 1 page explaining how to fly the aircraft (if there are multiple variations, illustrate how to fly each) • The instructable (or instructables’) license must be: "Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa)" • This sentence and link must be displayed on your entry's intro page: “This instructable is an entry in Paper Airplane Contest 8.” Prizes: For this contest I will award the publishers of the top 3 performing paper airplanes* one patch each. Each patch will feature its respective aircraft, rather than medals. The first place winner will also receive a 1 Year Instructables.com Pro membership if his/her plane meets or exceeds all specifications. *Multiple entries are allowed. To keep the distribution of prizes wide however, each entrant can only win one prize. How to Enter: To enter this contest, you must send me a private message entitled “My PAC8 Paper Airplane [Your Member Name Here]” with your instructable(s)’s URL(s) included. I will then put the link(s) and author's name onto a list on this topic under "Entries". Judging: I will judge all the planes myself based on their abilities.
