Bamboo RC Airplane!


How to Build your own Bamboo RC Airplane (4 hr 21 min 9 sec)


Hi to all my fellow RC Brothers & sisters, Chris here . . .I wanted to share the build video of my newest RC scratch-built project the "Bamboo-Demon" Bamboo RC airplane basically anyone can build on your own.

its a long 4 hour video but if you follow along with me you can build your own Bamboo RC airplane.

The Maiden flight is at the 4:14:10 mark of the video.

Slow Stick? Gorilla glue would make it a lot lighter. Look at all the hot glue you used!

I used hot-glue in order to show people all over the world who can't get Gorilla glue or epoxy can still build this plane.

Not everyone can get Gorilla glue Isaac.

I personally use 2 part 5min Bob smith Epoxy on my personal builds along with CA, and foam safe CA, Gorilla glue is slow to cure and it's very messy and I very rarely use it Sir.

I've been Scratch-building since 1983 Isaac.

And "slow-sticks" aren't made with Bamboo like this plane Isaac.

Thankyou.
It flies very well. . . Better than most arf's I've owned.

It's faster than a slow stick I'd say. .. it's short wingspan helps her cut through the air, but her short wings offer aamazing lift.

It would indeed slope fly, with the fixed leading edge slat I'd say yes.
