How do you scale down PDF plans for planes?? I wanted to make a mini ShrubSmacker out of cardboard as a prototype, but I have no idea how to scale down plans.
Thanks in advance,
Hello everyone. Newbie here.
My father is really into the hobby and tried over years to get me in, sadly we havent been able to keep flying as laws here in Spain have got quite strict.
Found out Flite Test and immediately wanted to get flying again. In fact, I got so excited I built myself a...
I'm a long time watcher of FliteTest, but this is my first time posting here. I wanted to share a project I recently completed - building an FPV freestyle/racing quad from cardboard and epoxy resin. I was very inspired by the FliteTest DIY philosophy and wanted to bring that vibe...
One is the Nieuport 24
The second is a plane from two paper towel cardboard rolls put together. In the first one I ask what RC Electronic engines and powerpack would make it fly like the real one and the second one, what powerpack if you did a build with the paper towel cardboard rolls, would...
An Amazon box, paintsticks, chopsticks and hot glue, flies pretty well with interesting characteristics, able to fly fast and super slow, it can turn on a dime and spin to win, video of it flying to come in the future.
My class decided to make a cardboard cutout of an old teacher and thought it would be fun to make it into an rc airplane. I have made a few multirotors, but don't know alot about planes, so I need some help about how and if this would be possible. The cutout looks like this:
Do you have any...
Recently i got a new smart tv, witch by the way is awesome, and since I, like most european people, have no good source for cheap building materials i decided to build an FT flyer from the smart tv cardboard box.
It weighted in at about 410g, but i had to put a 1800mAh battery on to...
today I would like to know if you want to see my cardboard space shuttle to be converted to foam and make it fly!
please leave a comment if you want to see it fly :) or rate this article.
See my full build of the Challenger here ...
today my 1hour build will be "automatic elevator".
You can use it for smoother turns without dropping your plane too mutch (thats the theory )
make your rudder with smooth moveing parts
be sure that also your elevator has also smooth moving parts
take some wire
Hi, I've thrown a bit of money into the ground with RC and got nothing but wreckage. I'd like to get started again with something I can make and repair easily and cheaply. I've got a lot of corrugated cardboard lying around from moving. I know it's a pretty terrible material for builds, but I'd...
So I am fairly new to the hobby but have a ton of fun building these foam planes. I ordered some push rods and other items from FT for my next build and they showed up in a cardboard tube with a 2" ID. As soon as I saw it I couldn't help but want to make it fly. So here's what happened...
