Flying RC planes is an entertaining way to spend a quiet afternoon with friends and family. Even more fun than flying a plane from the remote is to build one. Building your own RC airplane is a fairly simple project that only requires a few tools, a certain amount of time and a little creativity. It’s also a great project to get the whole family involved in that each member can contribute to putting together.
• Choose the type of remote control airplane you want to build. There are all kinds of different models RC planes you can build, from fighter planes to models of bush planes. It all depends on what you are and what in the skill level you are comfortable building. An RC airplane kit usually runs for around $ 200. Check with your local store for more details.
• Clear a workspace for your plane. The same place you use to build your plan should also have enough space to store your new plan as well. Make sure the area you are using is dry and warm to avoid deforming the wood of the plane. An ideal place to build your plan would be your garage. Clean it up and organize your toolbox to help you find the tools you need to put your plan together.
• Remove the airplane parts from the kit and organize them. Get some plastic containers and group the pieces according to their type and store them in the containers so that you do not lose them.
• Take sandpaper and sand all parts of the body of the plane. Most RC planes are made of wood and you want to make sure that all parts are smooth and smooth or nicks in the wood. These could cause your plane not to fly properly, so it’s important to make sure the parts are smooth.
• Assemble the remote control and place the remote sensor on the aircraft. Once you have put the engine and all electronics together, finish assembling the body of the plane.
• Paint your airplane using an airbrush. Using an airbrush will help you avoid missing spots and help you paint the body quickly. You can paint the plane of the same color as the picture on the box, or you can customize it yourself to give it a personal touch.
• Fly to the park for the test flight. Make sure the area you use to fly your plane is not crowded and is not near any passing traffic.
