Douglas DC-3 RC Plane Part 1

Print

About 2 months ago I held a polling on my community tab, to decide between Douglas DC-3 or DHC-6 Twin Otter, the winner for the next twin motor RC model plane is Douglas DC-3. This project should have began last week but I ran out of 3mm foam board. I mainly use 3mm depron foam or polyfoam for the material and 5mm for the formers. The wingspan will be 2200 mm or 87 inches. This project will be divided into 3 or 4 parts, from start to finish and fly. In between each part I will make 2 new projects, so it will not too boring on just 1 subject.
