Introduction to RC Plane Electronics

In the previous post, I described to you the Radio or transmitter, and gave you a basic idea about the different “channels”. (See: Getting to know the “Radio” in Radio Control). In this post I would like to give you a basic idea about how the radio “communicates” with your airplane, and how the “electronics” are set...

Getting to know the “Radio” in “Radio Control”!

If you’ve ever thought of buying a radio controlled airplane, or are thinking about buying one, you probably should be aware of what the “radio” is and how it functions. Let me show you an image, which you might have already seen: So this is what a typical “radio” looks like! The above image also has all the “channels”...

Glossary of Terms

                Below is a list of terms commonly used in aeromodeling. This is not an exhaustive list so please feel free to send me your input.     Adverse yaw. When turning an airplane using only ailerons, the drag of the lowered aileron is greater than that of the raised aileron; this extra drag tends...

Getting to know the Parts of an RC Airplane

Parts of an RC Airplane   As we discussed earlier, an RC model airplane is a scaled down version of an actual aircraft. Therefore, all the individual parts of an RC airplane are also scaled down version of parts that you will find on a full-sized aircraft. The mechanism with which each part functions is also based on the same principles as a full-sized...

The Fundamentals of Flight – How does an aircraft fly?

Perhaps the most important things to understand before even attempting to build a model airplane, is the “fundamentals of flight”.  These are the same principles that are applied in full-sized aircraft as well. Once you understand these basic principles, I can assure you that RC flying would be a lot easier and a lot more...

RC Planes for Beginners – Introduction to Aeromodeling as a Hobby

My fascination with the world of aeromodelling led me to do a Google search for “RC Planes for Beginners”, and I was surprised to find a bulk of information that was disorganized and confusing. I started this blog for people like myself, who want to build and fly model aircraft, but are not sure how to get started. This first article will give you...
