Do you enjoy rc-building as much as flying model airplanes? Well many pilots love this side of the hobby. It is a
great deal of fun to explore, if you have not started building
radio control aircraft.
Every pilot needs to learn how to build aircraft at some point
in their flying career. Why? because when you crash your aircraft
sometimes, it might only need minor repairs. If you do not know
how to build rc airplane models, your choices will be limited to
ready to fly and almost ready to fly aircraft.
So do not limit yourself in that matter, learn how to build a
Ok...how do you learn?
What does building aircraft consist of?
Well it consist of several factors, the type of aircraft model,
time and expense.
* Type of aircraft...as you may or may not know there are
various airplane kits. Each one will require specific building
* Time...different aircraft require specific time to complete. It depends on how much time you can provide in building
a particular model.
* Skills...various aircraft require specific skills to build. If you are beginner, do not select a giant scale model as
your first building project. Build a simple highwing trainer or
sports model, and develop your skills.
Could I share my personal experience here?...
The very first balsa model I built was the (goldberg eagle 2)
a highwing trainer kit. All I did was follow the directions
from the instruction manuel that came with the airplane. Know
what, the aircraft was very fun and easy to build. I learned to
build other model aircraft and gained more experience.
The tower hobbies kaos40 was the first sport low wing
aircraft I built. I began to build various models, and gained
more experience as time passed. I learned to build biplanes and
twin engine radio control airplane models.
Besides you NEED something to do when the weather is
TOO COLD or wet outdoors!
