On 12/28/2003 2:24 AM Ted shuffled out of his cave and grunted these
great (and sometimes not so great) words of knowledge:
You are new to flying.
Building a plane from scratch is primarily a "labor of love". I would
hate to see all your work go to toothpicks in about a 5 second flight.
If you are not building a trainer, buy a trainer, GET AN INSTRUCTOR, and
learn to fly BEFORE putting your "labor of love" in the air.
Just my $0.02 worth.
im playing on building a nitro r/c plane from scratch and i need help,
so far i know about the fuel types and stuff (from my nirto r/c car),
i know the engine i want, but im not sure about everything else ,
again HELP, any instructions on how to build on.
===============================Do you truly mean "from scratch"? Draw your own plans, cut your own wood,
etc? That's a pretty big undertaking if you're new to RC Aircraft. Buying
and building a trainer kit for the engine of your choice would be a much
easier way to start and would probably have a better chance of success.
Great Planes has the manuals available online for a lot of their kits. The
manuals give a good listing of the tools and supplies needed for the build.
Even if you do mean 'from scratch', printing a manual for a trainer will
give you lots of info about how planes go together.
