Aeromodelling

Those remote controlled aero-models have always been my fascination. I have been dreaming of building an R/C glider myself, but didn't know how 😕 .

I'd like to know if anyone is into R/C planes.

wow

Hey too good man!

I guess you can learn the basics with that model. Do let us know your experiences with Diddlebug 😀 !

I have decided that I will not buy it, rather I'll try make one myself 😉

Hope I find some time soon.

Has anyone here ever built an aeromodel from scratch?

My friend has. Its quite simple!

Get a brushless DC motor for the propeller, two servos to control each wing pitch, a motor controller, a battery, and a transmitter and receiver. The body can be made out of simple materials. My friend used the thin styrofoam for the body reinforced by tape at the joints. His is modelled as a shape of the stealth fighter, so you can imagine the number of flat surfaces. No need to curve the body like a normal jet fighter.

This is enough for a first try. Later you can strengthen the body with more exotic materials 😛

How about having your friend on CE to tell us how to build a model from scratch? 😉

It would be interesting!

Hi, I am an enthusiast of the scale models, of old models, I present to you this XI BLERIOT Mod: BL-877 of 1911 has an wing span of 225 cm and the warp of the wings is doing for torsion of the wings and not with ailerons, is the same as the original pattern weighs 9,700 kg and it takes a engine MAGNUM 180 of 4 Stroke, is very beautiful to see take off, here I leave you an image if you want to see but you detail and a video of one of its flights can enter in my web:cobashobbies.com and there is you have much but you photograph and details.
