T-6A Texan II RC Plane

E-mail Print

I'm back making not so large RC model again, this time around 1 meter wingspan. I already aimed for this T-6A Texan II US Air Force trainer plane to make an RC flying model of it for some time. I already know it will be a good flyer by looking of its slick fuselage and dihedral type low wing, and it is. The building process is also relatively easy and can be build in about a week. The main material is 5mm depron or polyfoam you can also use foamboard. The landing gear that comes with the plans is fixed type landing gear, but you can easily change it to retractable landing gear to give more scale looks. The model is already have scale looks like the real thing, but actually this model is a semi scale model, because I modify the wing larger and make all stabilizers more surface area. I like this model because of the scale look and how easy to control.

Boeing 747-400 RC Plane Part 3

E-mail Print

All the fuselage parts are already finish, although I haven't figured out about the locking system for connecting each segments. In the meantime I just using packing tape to join them together, I'll cover it on part 4. The total length of the complete fuselage is about 4.5 meter or about 14.7 ft and the weight so far about 3800 gram. Looks like I have lost the weight battle, the final result will be above 4000 gram, maybe with the wing and electronik it will be around 5000 - 6000 gram. But still it will be very light if we look to its wing loading.

Cessna 337 / O-2A Skymaster RC Plane

E-mail Print

In the past I already made this type of model plane 2 times before, but all of them only use pusher prop motor. This is the first time I'm using twin motor for Cessna 337 Skymaster. I also designed the papercraft or paper model version of it, it's a commision project so I don't have the template for free share. But using the 3D model for the papercraft version I modify it into this RC model plane plans. It should have been a smooth process, but I made mistake on installing the tail boom. So I need to re-install the tail boom to get it right and fly good. Also I have learned that using PVC foamboard also a mistake if using for key constructions that need rigidness and strength, so the next episode I will back using 3mm plywood.
