Very nice! All balsa or a mix?
You can’ t just post pictures of such interesting project! Please elaborate to stop the drooling
Wow! Very cool. Let us know how it flies!
Amazing work! RC planes always fascinated me as a kid. Something about them always makes me feel a little childlike.
Lots of people would pay money to take a class to learn how to make one of these AWESOME planes.
That is amazing!
Very nice. How about a video of it in flight?
Awesome dude! I used to design and build my own planes and rockets. All the time I spent creating the cutout templates, cutting the wood, and assembling the plane can be done so quickly now with autocad and glowforge. I used to cover my planes with tissue paper (back in the 1970’s) . Are you using monokote? I don’t see any control lines. Is this a free flight model?
I haven’t made a balsa plane as yet, though I do have plans for one in the works. But I’ve been using my GF for a couple of years now for my radio control hobby. My latest creation isn’t very complicated, it’s a front-panel for a device called a “RaceTimer” that is used for tracking lap times in a drone race. One of my earliest GF creations in the second picture, a micro sized racing drone.
I’ve used wood, acrylic, delrin and foam to make flying things with my GF. It’s one of the specific reasons I bought it.
That’s a really nice little Cub. Nice to see one that’s not yellow.
Oooooh. I want to make a Woodie
Any pointers to where I can learn about building drones?
PM me and I’ll hook you up.
Building planes was one of reasons I have wanted a laser for so long. Funny though, now that I have finally gotten the laser, I no longer fly.
