P-51D Mustang RC Plane

E-mail Print

I redesign this RC foam board P-51D Mustang from the original plans that I made for papermodel. I simplify the design for easier building. The main material is still 5mm depron or polyfoam foam board. In this project it's the first time I use 4 of these new techniques. They are DIY spinner, new clear canopy molding, laminating film for covering and DIY retractable landing gear. I'm quite satisfied with all the result, except the landing gear still needs more improvement but, it has lots of potential. Although it worked but still, I will improve it in future projects. This Mustang is fast, even with just 50% throttle, I was trying hard to not hit a tree when flying it. I should add flaps for slower landing, but the time for this project is limited so I'll leave it to you to improvise with this plans, good luck and have a good building time.

Douglas DC-3 RC Plane Part 3

E-mail Print

I think this step is the hardest part of the entire series of building this RC Douglas DC-3. It took 2 weeks to research and trial and error making a working retractable landing gear. I'm very satisfied with result and kind of relieved because the hardest challenge already successfully passed. The rest will be easy, installing motor, complete the wing, adding servos, covering and decal.

Piper Cub J3 RC Plane

E-mail Print

After struggling for almost 2 weeks editing and rendering, this Piper Cub build video is finally released. The problem started when I tried new style of shooting on the build steps, but it ended up a disaster. The result was not watchable with 5X speed timelapse as usual and the lighting also terrible. I need to re-edit and failed render multiple times. This is the best that I can give to you, I think it's better than before (the first render) but still my worst production. Although I think you can still follow my build easily, just like my other videos, only the quality is not good. Beside that, the model itself the Piper Cub is awesome. It flies great, very slow. My last flight was on the last weekend it fly very slow with only 40% throttle but I didn't record it. The flying scene on this video was shoot 2 2 weeks ago. The design is very similar with Cessna 172 build style, but this Piper Cub has more details and longer build time. The CG is spot on, doesn't need any counter weight ballast on the nose.

Douglas DC-3 RC Plane Part 2

E-mail Print

In this DC-3 build part 2 I am going to share with you how to make the horizontal stabilizer, steerable tail wheel and servo platform. I use separate servos for moving the rudder and tail wheel. They will be mixed together so they will have co-axial movement. You will need 5mm carbon tube with 100 cm length for horizontal stabilizer spars. I also use ready made plastic hinges for the elevators.

Cartoon Mig-21 Lancer RC Plane

E-mail Print

The last cartoon RC plane had surprisingly very good feedback from my audience, so I make another model. This time is Mig-21 Lancer in fatty or cartoon style. The original plans was making Spitfire, but change to Mig-21 because it won the poll on my channel's community tab. This Mig-21 is looks huge with 105 cm wingspan but only weight 1050 grams. It uses the same electronic as T-2 Buckeye. It has detachable landing gears, so you can switch mode easily on field, you can choose to take of run with wheels from ground or just tossing the plane into the air.
