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.

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.

Now make a small cut under the paper airplane, please refer Fig 2. Now we are done. Next thing is how you fly your rocket. Take your rubber band using your one hand hold a rubber one side and other side of rubber band put into the small cut your make under your paper airplane. Now stretch little bit and release your paper rocket. You should be able to see your rocket move very fast and then gradually land on the floor. Very simple but really interesting. Try your own things, try different models and have a fun. If you like to like to share your experience or if you have any questions you may post under the comment section.

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

Hanger 9 - Cessna 40 ARF, Value Series

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
