T-2 Buckeye RC Plane

E-mail Print

I already put an eye on this beauty, the T-2 Buckeye for quite sometime and now this time I share my build. This time I just want to make my dream jet, not to bother to simplify the shape, no detachable wing, no easy build, I just want to have her and fly it. I'm not expecting you to build this like any my other models, but if you want to this is a good flyer. My plan was to equipped this RC model jet with mechanical retractable landing gear or servo driven. But in a test, both had problem on the servo, I use plastic gear servo, maybe I should use metal gear servo. Finally I replace the main landing gear with servoless retract and problem is gone. Like usual I use pusher prop with NTM 2830 1000kv 370 watts motor, the same motor I use for Boeing 737-300. I also use the same prop 8x6x4 but with 4S battery. The prop specification is above recommendation but with 370 watt and soft blade I think it can manage. She can short take off and shoot the sky like on a rail. The landing is also easy, I am happy with the result.

Bango 2 RC Trainer Plane for Beginner

E-mail Print

Bango v2 is an answer to many request for another simple plane design and a trainer for beginner. It was designed to surpass Bango v1 performance. The main goal is still the same, which is a trainer plane that is easy to fly and can withstand hard landing even crashes. Because I know beginners usually afraid to crashing their plane, so they held back. That's why I made Bango 2 so new pilots don't have to worry damaging their RC plane when hard landing or crashing. By moving the motor the the center and on the back of the plane make it free to propeller strike to the ground. Also build the vertical stab with 2 layer of foams gives Bango 2 more rugged than Bango 1. Rudder and elevator servo placement that are outside the fuselage also an ease for beginner to install. Bango 2 also equipped with detachable landing gear, if you hard landing with landing gear attached, it will detached by itself and will not damage the fuselage, because the landing gear just held by 2 rubber bands.

PZL-104 Wilga RC Plane

E-mail Print

Wilga is my third homemade/ DIY RC model, I built in in 2013. Some have request for me to release the build video. The first version is very detailed and very hard to make, especially the tail boom part, because in the first version the tail boom is fully cylindrical. It's also quite heavy around 1200 gram, so in this latest version I already made the plans easier to build and only has 900 gram AUW even with larger wing area. The first one is 1300 mm this one is 1400 mm wingspan. However the test flying was not very smooth, there were some trials and also a crash. But luckily it was easy to repair and I made the nose a bit longer to remove the heavier counter weight ballast.

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.
