Latest page is on the use and installation of ParkZone's ultra micro radio control equipment for your original aircraft designs is here! I posted my 38th video on how to use the ParkZone Ultra Micro radio control system for your own design RC model aircraft here!
The Fokker Spin CAD plans are now complete, with details here. I will e-mail PDF files of the plans (that will need to be enlarged) as well as TurboCAD, DWG and DXF files so you can start construction soonest.
View a complete page listing at the sitemap, to include a summary of the 10 most recent pages added to the site and all 37 of my YouTube videos.
New, one-stop shopping page here!
Please note - I ship all my model airplane construction plans and TurboCAD training CDs world-wide!
Flight review and video of the Air Hogs Pocket Copter - world's smallest RC helo.
Use classic free flight model airplane plans and convert them to indoor flight with micro RC gear here.
Review the various RC airplane plans and design tips offered on this website.
Lessons learned and design considerations from my first published RC airplane design, the Yankee Mike.
Determine the parameters - wingspan, areas and moments - for a successful model airplane design.
Great Deal! - Two CD set containing over 2 hours and 50 minutes of video training on using TurboCAD for drawing RC plane plans available here.
It took me over a year to learn TurboCAD for drawing my RC model airplane plans. View these CDs - just $16.95 plus shipping and handling - and you will immediately be productive with this intuitive and easy to use CAD program. You just need quality training, and this is it.
The electric RC plane world and in particular, indoor electric airplane flying has undergone a revolution over the past few years. Indoor Flying Model will provide the latest information on these remarkable electric RC plane aircraft.
I've used Tower Hobbies for all my modeling needs since 1980 (just phone orders back then). Great service, great folks and great tech support.
Build the Finch RC micro flyer. Download a FREE full size CAD plans for the Finch here. The Finch can be built in a weekend, using normal building materials of balsa and plywood. Use of the affordable and lightweight ParkZone electronics ensures success with this gentle indoor three channel radio control model airplane.
Indoor Flying Model covers the full range of the new world of indoor electric RC airplanes, from free RC plane plans to electric airplane plans to the new Ready to Fly (RTF) micro planes. That's right, you can literally take a RTF radio control model airplane right out of the box and be flying in minutes, no building required.
Great information on how to fly these new radio control aircraft. There are a wide variety of of remote control methods that guide these revolutionary small aircraft. Some electric RC plane models have no moveable control surfaces at all, relying on differential thrust. Other electric radio control model types have full proportional control. RTF helicopters are a great new addition to the indoor electric RC plane hangar.
The Havoc Razor ready to fly indoor RC helicopter is one model you have to get. Two channel control makes learning to fly a snap. Razor flight video taken on my third flight, and this is the first time I have ever flown an RC helicopter. Crisp, sure control and just plain fun are the hallmarks of the Havoc Razor.
The Chickadee is a plans built indoor three channel electric RC plane. The Chickadee is easy to build. With its large size and light weight flies like a dream.
Learn about the revolutionary ParkZone Cessna 210. A three channel, fully proportional radio control transmitter that is on the brand new 2.4 GHz interference free spectrum is included. Everything you need for under $150 and it is ready to fly right out of the box. The technology to deliver this type of electric RC plane did not even exist before 2007. You will not believe how well this remarkable model flies. Check out other ParkZone aircraft here.
Slow, fun and majestic flight at a walking pace right before your eyes.
The Palm Z RTF electric RC model is one of a kind plane using infrared control, rather than the much more common radio control for guidance. The Palm Z uses a two channel system with proportional rudder and throttle, and flies just great.
The MicroScout electric micro model airplanes kit is a unique and well designed indoor flyer. Note the small receiver (black square just ahead of wing leading edge), geared propeller, and lightweight foam wing.
The Yard Ace was a plan was offered in the Sept 2008 Quiet and Electric Flight International magazine. The Yard Ace can be flown in larger indoor venues, is very easy to build, and makes a great first electric radio control airplane plan project.
The Cyclone offers a unique two channel infrared control system. Patterned after a revolutionary post World War II experimental aircraft, the Cyclone is truly ready to fly right out of the box and provides surprisingly stable as well as aerobatic flight.
