How To Make A Balloon Plane

Friends! How is the thing happening? Did you try the toy planes we make here? Today I am going to show another simple toy plane design that you can make very easily but have a great fun. Today we make Balloon Plane. You may wonder what this balloon plane is. This is again a simple plane uses the rubber balloon to generate throttle power. You know that once you fill the rubber balloon with air, inside the balloon air in under pressure. Once you release this air you can generate pressurized air flow from balloon’s mouth. This air flow can be used to push your plane forward very easily. Now you can imagine what I am going to make here. Even though this is a simple plane design if you control the air flow correctly you will be able to fly your plane considerable long air time. It all depends on the balloon size, straw size and length. You need to fine tune these parameters to get optimum flying time. That means if balloon is large we can expect long flying time. If straw size is small again we can expect long flying time, but if it too small forward thrust might not enough and falling down your plane. That is why you need to adjust the balloon size and straw size to make a nice plane.

How to give power to a toy plane with BLDC motors?

How Brushless DC motor fixed to toy airplane

Now we have tried few simple toy plane projects and you have some experience about how to make a toy plane. But still as I promised, we have not make our own toy plane yet. Actually we assembled some ready made toy planes correctly to get clear understanding about flying machine. This experience is really important when you make your own plane, reason is flying it not like any other motions if you made any single mistake your flying machine might not fly or might falling down. But this is not the case with other machines if you get any land vehicle or ship simple mistake will not do any harm to the machine or passenger. To fly any machine, you should make it very correctly and theoretical manner. That is why we go very slowly. But end result will very impressive once your own hand made plane flying.

SYMA S107G RC Mini Gyro Helicopter

How is the progress? Did you try to make these flying machines? Today is another big day and we are going to have look about another great RC helicopter. SYMA S107G RC Mini Gyro Helicopter is commercially available complete helicopter model. But I guess you would like to assemble your own Gyro Helicopter, so that rather simply buy and fly your helicopter will make our own one, that will give more fun. Here I will discuss about the major components about this Gyro helicopter and how to assemble them to make your helicopter.

You can buy this helicopter from here Syma S107/S107G R/C Helicopter - Red.

Also you can buy individual parts and make your own helicopter. For this you don't need to make same helicopter you can come up with your own ideas as well. Why I am following this method is later you will understand that I will teach you how to make your own RC airplane. For that this knowledge is really important. Making RC from the scratch not a easy task, but that is again not a complex task if you have proper understanding. The objective of these tutorials to give you practical experience towards to make your own RC airplane.

How To Test RC Airplane or Helicopter Propeller

New Excellent Performance 4 CH Yellow Gee Bee Racer Radio Remote Control Electric RC Airplane RTF w/ High Crash ResistanceI promised to discuss about "how to make RC airplanes" and we had already discussed few topics; RC Airplane Safety, Cessna 182 Pro Deluxe Electric RTF RC Plane, Hanger 9 - Cessna 40 ARF, Value Series, How To Make A Radio Controlled Toy Plane. Now you have some experience with radio controlled air planes and other types of airplanes. Most popular toy airplane model is RC or radio controlled airplanes which give you maximum fun. So that I will discuss little bit details about make your own radio controlled airplane. This topic might be little confuse than previous topics, but to make your own RC airplane or assemble commercially available RC airplane correctly; this knowledge is really important.

You know that there few common important parts in any RC airplane; engine or electric motor, wings, propeller, battery back, controlling mechanism ... etc. It is important to have good knowledge on each part before move into make your own RC airplane. Even you buy and assemble commercially available RC airplane this knowledge is important and knowledge about safety measures are equally important. So that I will discuss each part in detail before move into complete RC airplane model.

Today I am going to discuss about the Propeller of the airplane. Before introduce the Jet Engines for the airplane, normal piston engine and the propeller was the main driving force of the airplane. Now this method using in RC toy airplanes heavily. So that we will discussed about the propeller today. It is not easy task to make your own propeller for your toy airplane. So that I would recommend you to buy a propeller from the market. But how you decide which propeller to buy, size of the propeller, type of the propeller, weight of the propeller...etc.

Rubber Band Powered Rocket

Rubber Band Powered Flying Machines (Klutz S.)Today I am going to introduce another simple but, very interesting toy. You might remember that we make a Paper Airplane few months ago. Today I am going to fly that paper airplane using a rubber band. If you did not make my previous paper airplane you can try it from here. You have to have that paper airplane to make this rubber band powered rocket.

Fig 1: How to make a paper airplane

As you can see in above picture, you need to make your paper airplane. Details instruction given in previous post. Then you need to have a little long rubber band.
