    Wooden Bat Bones Frame Build

    EFlite BNF Hawker Hurricaine 25e Build

    So I was asked after purchasing the EFlite BNF Hawker Hurricaine 25e from Atlanta for the unbelievable price of $139.00 to do a quick build thread. This plane came like all of the EFlite, Parkzone, and the rest of Horizon Hobby's stuff packed well, no issues whatsoever. Here are the contents...

    Hey Guys, So im not a builder by any means, but I had a really good idea (i think) tonight that i'd love to see some of you more experienced rc plane builders try or even make an episode about this. Using a 2 liter soda bottle as the fuselage, try making a plane out of a 2 liter. You could...

    Budget Plane

    Hello every one and Josh and Josh. i know you guys already did a challenge on "making" a RC plane on a budget, how about instead of creating a plane from your mine, make a plane by just getting the parts? For example, a year back, a friend let me fly his ParkZone F-27C stryker and i loved it and...

    Hi, I am new to the RC field and is totally confused about the different types of foam available. EPP, Depron, EPO etc. Also, I am not sure on which glue should be used for what. It would be great if you could do a detailed show on "All about foam and glues". I am sure it will be welcomed by...

    FPV TEK SUMO 2.0 High speed mountain flyer

    Hey everyone I am just finishing up the build on my second FPV TEK SUMO. My first one is lost in the wilderness, I miss it... I live in the mountains so I build for mountain flying.
