Making a Model RC Airplane through a Plan

You will require a photo of your Airplane model from side and from top to scale it down on the paper. Use your geometry box and the mathematical skills to make a scaled drawing of different parts of your air plane such as the body, wings and the propeller. You can use rulers and compasses to make an accurate drawing of your model remote control air plane. Make the cut outs and glue them on the wood. Use your adhesive gum for the task. Let it dry. Then saw the wood and your parts are ready to assemble. It is not necessary that you will make a flawless diagram in the first go. You might have to do a lot of erasing and over sketch to make the best possible shape.

It is better to fit the electrical parts before joining the body and other parts of the air plane. This will avoid the risk of detaching the air plane in case of machinery failure. First, connect the electric motor with the radio control. Check if the system is working properly. Then start tightening the frame of the air plane with the wings and the propeller. Hold the wheels onto the axles. Lastly, glue the tail. Investigate the balance of the plane by placing a finger on any one wing. See if it leans forward or backward and on the other sides. Fix any misbalance. When you are satisfied with your raw model remote control air plane, leave it to dry so that its parts do not come off while you beautify it.

Decoration and Finishing
When your plane is completely dry, you can start with the ornamentation and painting. You can use tissue, glitters, sticks, toothpicks, silks or anything you want to make your plane look stunning. Painting can be done in flat colors and it can be patterned even. It is better to use reflecting colors so that your plane outstands among all at the flying field. It will easily be visible to one can leisure the flying. To avoid any wearing off to the plane in early days, it is extremely essential to give you plane a thick varnish. This will not only protect the paint and decoration of the plane from sunlight, but also give it a shiny and smooth surface. For best results, leave the varnish to dry for at least two days. You personal and homemade remote control air plane with private settings and technical specifications is ready to fly!
