T-6A Texan II RC Plane

E-mail Print

I'm back making not so large RC model again, this time around 1 meter wingspan. I already aimed for this T-6A Texan II US Air Force trainer plane to make an RC flying model of it for some time. I already know it will be a good flyer by looking of its slick fuselage and dihedral type low wing, and it is. The building process is also relatively easy and can be build in about a week. The main material is 5mm depron or polyfoam you can also use foamboard. The landing gear that comes with the plans is fixed type landing gear, but you can easily change it to retractable landing gear to give more scale looks. The model is already have scale looks like the real thing, but actually this model is a semi scale model, because I modify the wing larger and make all stabilizers more surface area. I like this model because of the scale look and how easy to control.

Boeing 747-400 RC Plane Part 3

All the fuselage parts are already finish, although I haven't figured out about the locking system for connecting each segments. In the meantime I just using packing tape to join them together, I'll cover it on part 4. The total length of the complete fuselage is about 4.5 meter or about 14.7 ft and the weight so far about 3800 gram. Looks like I have lost the weight battle, the final result will be above 4000 gram, maybe with the wing and electronik it will be around 5000 - 6000 gram. But still it will be very light if we look to its wing loading.

Cessna 337 / O-2A Skymaster RC Plane

E-mail Print

In the past I already made this type of model plane 2 times before, but all of them only use pusher prop motor. This is the first time I'm using twin motor for Cessna 337 Skymaster. I also designed the papercraft or paper model version of it, it's a commision project so I don't have the template for free share. But using the 3D model for the papercraft version I modify it into this RC model plane plans. It should have been a smooth process, but I made mistake on installing the tail boom. So I need to re-install the tail boom to get it right and fly good. Also I have learned that using PVC foamboard also a mistake if using for key constructions that need rigidness and strength, so the next episode I will back using 3mm plywood.

Boeing 747-400 RC Plane Part 2

I am quite happy with the result of this giant RC Boeing 747 part 2. The model looks slick, shiny with packing tapes cover. Also the decal make it looks even more beautiful. The most important result is the weight, it is still half of my target weight which is 2 kg+, so I still can lift if it one handed. Although looks good, the build process was not entirely smooth. The fuselage was tend to twist but I already managed to correct it. To avoid fuselage twisting you have to assembly the top part of the fuselage separately and then, the merging with the wing fairing needs to be done on the last step. This model is designed to be able to fit in my car (Toyota Avanza) for transport.

Mirage 2000 RC Plane

E-mail Print

This jet is sponsored by my friend who owned a Radio Control parts store, he provided all the electronics, including 70mm EDF, retract landing gear, ESC and Lipo Battery. You can visit his stores on 2 links below. We both decided to build Mirage 2000 that have 2 seats, because it looks way cooler than the single seat version. At this project I committed to use foam safe glue for the primary glue for saving weight reason, but in the reality looks like foam safe glue was not suitable for my building style. It's too slow and too weak, but mainly too slow. So this project release is very late. Also the maiden flight was not very smooth to achieved, many days of trial and error, but finally it did fly, gracefully. It achieved by replacing the EDF with pusher prop motor. We plan to use more powerful EDF with 6S in the future, and will update it to you when it happen.
