In previous section we discussed about major components of radio controlled airplane. In this article will look at further details about Hanger 9 - Cessna 40 ARF, Value Series radio controlled airplane and how each of these components are fixed and controlled. In previous article I mentioned that we need few components to make a airplane. First we need to have structure of the plane, wings and tail. Then we need to have a propeller for your airplane and engine/motor to give power to the propeller. Finally you need to have a mechanisum to control your airplane.
First I am going to discuss how to you can build structure of your airplane. Detail description of each component as follows:
Center Wing Tape
Center Wing Tape is used to fix wings with the body of airplane. You don't need to use this tape always, any light weight tape can be use for this.
Center Wing Tape: Cessna 40 ARF Value
Tail Assembly is used to contruct the tail of the airplane. This component consist with four parts. Tail is very important to stabilize the orientation, pitch and yaw of the airplane. You can use plastic or very light weight wood (balsa wood) to construct this. If you are a beginer, it better to buy this part because correct size and shape is very important.
Tail Assembly: Cessna 40 ARF Value
Wheel Axles used to fix wheels and axles.
Spinner: Cessna 40 ARF Value
Fuselage is the main structure of the airplane. All components are fixed to fuselage. You can use very light weight wood or plastic to make this part.
Fuselage: Cessna 40 ARF Value
Main Land Gear
Main Land Gear is used to fix landing wheels of the airplane.Wheel Axsels are fixed to this and wheels are fixed to those axsels.
Main Land Gear: Cessna 40 ARF Value
This is the main wing set of the airplane. This wing should be very light weight and size/share should be very unique.
Wing Set: Cessna 40 ARF Value
Wheel Pants used to cover wheels of the airplane. The shape of the wheel pants is important to reduce disturbance from wheels through air.

First you need to supply all above parts before you move into implementation of the airplane. In next article we will look at how we connect all these parts together and build your first radio controlled airplane.
Prepare this part list and ready to go:
1. Center Wing Tape: Cessna 40 ARF Value
2. Tail Assembly: Cessna 40 ARF Value
3. Wheel Axles: Cessna 40 ARF Value
4. Main Land Gear: Cessna 40 ARF Value
5. Spinner: Cessna 40 ARF Value
6. Fuselage: Cessna 40 ARF Value
7. Wing Set: Cessna 40 ARF Value
8. Wheel Pants: Cessna 40 ARF Value
Once you complete your project, your airplane will look like this.
