It had to be light, easy to cut and mold or finish, easy to assembly, and to be able to create as many parts that are needed for replacements. This is where the idea for these plans was born from.

Hello my fellow Radio control builders. I want to share with you something you can make in your workshop, that doesn’t cost much and is fun to play with after it is made. If this venture is successful I will make more designs in the future.
This was made from pine and acrylic cut from a bandsaw and a table saw.

I am going to share with you some of my work I have done over the years on my little and big planes. I am getting better at flying, but when I was not so good I concentrated all of my time into decorating them. Now I can fly most of em.

Hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do
