RC Sky Arrow Trainer Plane

E-mail Print

Many have requested this RC model plane, this is Sky Arrow with 1700mm wingspan. Its wing loading can be categorized as a trainer plane. It has big canopy and room for storage make it perfect for FPV platform. It can fly slow and very easy to control make it suitable for beginner's plane or trainer plane. This is a second build, the first one was the prototype has thinner airfoil and doesn't have dihedral angle on its wing. Flying weight with 3S 2200 mAh Lipo battery is around 1 kg, it still can take off with 1500 gram weight. There are 2 version of tail booms that you can choose. The plans comes in A4 and A0 size format, but the decal with A3 format.

RC Airliner Boeing 737-300 Part 4 (Final)

E-mail Print

This is the final part of Boeing 737-300 building video series. In this episode I am going to share with you the rest of the build to finish this RC airliner which are, making dummy engines, motor mounting, install electronics like ESC, servo and pushrods, paint and decal and finally its maiden flight. At first the CG is wrong (12 cm) and almost crash, the correct CG is 17 cm from trailling edge. On this build I learned more about CG and the first time using that type of retract landing gear.

GA8 Airvan RC Plane

E-mail Print

I redesign my old plans on this GA8 Airvan RC plane model. This new version has better performance on flight, more lift, more stable and easier to control. I made the airfoil thicker than the first version. This model is made out of 5 mm polyfoam or depron foam sheet. I choose FlyStark livery because I think that's the coolest Airvan color scheme on the net. This livery decal also shared along with the plans. If you enjoy my Cessna 172 model you will enjoy more, building and flying this model and it's easier to build and fly. It only needs 4 servos, there's no steering on the front landing gear, you can't turn on taxi but the rudder is enough to steer the plane when it's running for take off. The wing and wing struts are detachable for easier transport. I also include 2D pics for 2 pilots and 4 passengers to add realness of the model.

RC Airliner Boeing 737-300 Part 3

E-mail Print

In this episode we'll making wing mounting, tail section and stabilizers. The tail section and stabilizers construction are pretty straight forward and all made out of foam sheet, no need for hard spars. Only the vertical stabilizer that needs a small plywood part. The plane so far is very light weight, just like I expected. The one that I have not expected is that, I thought the tail will be tilted downward because of its weight, but it isn't, so that's a good thing.

F-35C Lightning II RC Plane

E-mail Print

This is my first model that is using EDF or Electric Ducted Fan. I choose the C variant of F-35 aircraft, mainly because it has bigger wing, I wanted to make sure that it will have enough wingloading to fly. In this model I also share with you couple new things beside by using EDF alone. I share how to make a clear canopy and using servo driven retractable landing gear. The landing gear was bought from Banggood for about 10 dollars a long time ago. What I learned by using EDF is, it's pretty expensive if compare with pusher prop and will fly in a shorter time. I only have effectively 2,5 minutes to fly the jet, the rest is prepare for landing. You have to use 4S 2200mah with minimum 60C discharge rate, otherwise you will have a damaged battery after the first flight. Also EDF models need a decent paved and long runway. If you can access one, EDF jet is amazing.
