Quick Q's On A YouTube Build

How to build a RC plane for $10 (part 1) (10 min 4 sec)

Hey all,

I'm somewhat a beginner in scratchbuilding & have a few Q's on a build I've seen on YouTube (please see link above)

1. He didn't explain how he constructed, attached & secured the horizontal & vertical stabilisers, so how did he do it?

2. Does anyone know of the dimensions of the aircraft, a guesstimate is what i'm looking for please

3. Is there a tailwheel present, as I couldn't see one

4. What transmitter (make/model) would be used for this build (please suggest a decent yet not a 'breaking-the-banks' kind of price)

5. As the user on YouTube doesn't respond to Q's i thought i'd ask you guys if you could give me a list of electronics/equipment/materials (apart from the foam board he suggested in the vid)

Many thanks in advance!

You've got a video, there is a little detail about some of the power system components if you look at it on YouTube, but there are not dimensions or any other details about the airplane.

It is not practical for people to tell you much or any thing about the plane just from looking at that video.

Look in the scratchbuilt foamies subforum for planes that are about that size and similar in style. It is a typical high wing trainer, here are a couple you could start with:

** Blu-Baby Primary Trainer ** -

Trainer type plane -

Good luck with it!
