This article is an extension of the YouTube video, here you’ll find some more information to understand your project better and finish it, including a explanation video that shows you how to connect and set up the electronics.
This is a homemade rc airplane made with very simple materials, in fact is not very durable due to the poor material used, however it is a great practice or option if you only have this material available. I recommend using a high density foam, which is stronger and will stand hits and more crashes. If you’re making an RC airplane for the first time I recommend building this design instead.
It’s a really simple design with simple materials.
Of all our designs this will be the cheapest one but also depending on the material quality more or less durable.
It doesn’t take too long to finish so you’ll be having fun in no time.
