 Articles: Building A Radio Controlled Plane

RC Hobbies

Building A Radio Controlled Plane - Some people get started on the project on a whim, without putting proper thought into the amount of effort that it will take to get finished. If you are thinking about making a radio controlled plane, you should know exactly what will be required of you. You may decide that it is too much work for too little payoff or you may be passionate enough to stick with it and give it a try. By itself, the model is no more than a bunch of wood, glue, and maybe a bit of metal in the shape of a plane.



How much effort you spend on this will be dependent on what your goal is. Do you just want something that will get off the ground? If that's the case, the style won't matter too much to you. However, most of the time hobbyists will create lifelike representations of existing airplanes.

This involves creating an airframe out of a light material such as balsa wood, then covering up the sides with some kind of plastic. The dimensions are usually scale representations of whatever plane the model is based off of. They should always be easily removable, in case they need to be replaced. Get everything fit in to make sure you created the model correctly.

Usually, you will buy all of the motors and radio transmitters in one set, and by following some quick instructions you can get it all pieced together. Add decals, paint it, and do anything else that you have in mind. Once that is done with, put the motor equipment back in one last time.

Unless you have followed directions word for word down to every last detail, your plane probably won't be ready to fly right away. You might have been lucky enough to get it right the first time, but you will probably need to make some tweaks. This is by far the most frustrating part of making a radio controlled plane. You will have to determine whether it is a problem with aerodynamics, or whether your radio equipment simply isn't working.

The process definitely takes a lot of time and a lot of effort, but it is worth it in the end. When you can make a flawless takeoff and maneuver the plane through the air, you will be proud of the work that you have done. While you are toiling over building the model, getting everything to work right, and getting it to take off, just imagine that first moment when you are able to take off.

Take a turn, and get a taste for what is coming in the future. If you keep reminding yourself of that, you will be able to remain inspired. Some people get started on the project on a whim, without putting proper thought into the amount of effort that it will take to get finished.


Building A Radio Controlled Plane - Usually, you will buy all of the motors and radio transmitters in one set, and by following some quick instructions you can get it all pieced together. After you have installed it once to make sure, you should take it all out and finish the details of the model. Add decals, paint it, and do anything else that you have in mind. Unless you have followed directions word for word down to every last detail, your plane probably won't be ready to fly right away.

At this point you can take it out to a field or a park and attempt a takeoff, but you shouldn't hold your breath. You might have been lucky enough to get it right the first time, but you will probably need to make some tweaks. You will have to determine whether it is a problem with aerodynamics, or whether your radio equipment simply isn't working.

If you are stuck on this step, it's a good idea to consult a radio controlled hobby expert to see if you can get a diagnosis. The process definitely takes a lot of time and a lot of effort, but it is worth it in the end. While you are toiling over building the model, getting everything to work right, and getting it to take off, just imagine that first moment when you are able to take off. Go out to the park one day, and see if you can catch another model plane enthusiast out flying his or her plane.
