Build RC Plane Videos

This project was developed in for Concepts 2 Creation by myself (Design & Technology Teacher) and Jon (Aerospace Engineer). We were asked to complete the project in our final year of study for teachers to use as a full teaching package so that students could understand both the construction and basic flying principles in a simple / cheap RC aeroplane possibly in preparation for the UAV Outback challenge . We attempted to cut down the amount of stores you would need to visit to get all of the parts for the project. Most of the parts were sourced from Hobby King which is an online store in china / USA. There is now a Hobby King store front in Adelaide on Glen Osmand Rd Ph (08) 8299 9882 they will be slightly more expensive but will be able to help source the part you need all from the same place.
