How To: Build Scale Models Using Foam

Before I start any scratch build model, I usually draw up a rough plan in CAD or computer-aided design as it helps with making the build a little bit easier. Although, at times I do love just winging it with some builds and just making things up as I go along. However, if I am going to be building scale ( stand-off scale anyway) models, they need to be reasonably accurate and well designed. Continue reading How To: Build Scale Models Using Foam

In the coming articles, I’ll look at some of the tips and tricks to help make sure that the learning experience is as pleasant as possible. In R/C, as with many other things, you never stop learning – it’s one of the fun parts of the hobby. Continue reading Learning To Fly: Part Two


How To: Rewind Brushless Motors

When I first started flying RC I went through many motors. I’m sure that many of you would be familiar with this. Need more thrust = larger prop = larger amp draw = large amounts of smoke pouring out the front of the plane. Some may have given up but that wasn’t me. I still had more motors to burn out before I learnt what a thrust calculator is. More on that later. Continue reading How To: Rewind Brushless Motors



More Than ‘Just A Trainer’: Bixler 1.1 V2

Introduction

My first ever ‘proper’ fixed wing model was a Bixler V2. That was back in early 2014 and it became the ‘plane that helped me to get back into flying a fixed wing. It was such a great experience that these models and have become one of my top suggestions for pilots looking to learn to fly. Continue reading More Than ‘Just A Trainer’: Bixler 1.1 V2


How to Setup Differential Thrust

What is Differential Thrust?

Differential thrust is essentially where each motor on your aircraft can be driven with a different throttle output setting. A multirotor (or drone as the cool kids call them) is essentially an aircraft that has motors capable of being independently driven by a flight controller. Subtle differences in thrust are used for balancing and general flight. Continue reading How to Setup Differential Thrust
