So this is just my new project about DIY RC planes. This one is perfect for newbies, because of really simple design and easy assembling, so I want to tell about how to build RC plane of foam.


  • Foam plates
  • Wooden sticks - props for flowers
  • Textolite
  • Foam glue ("Titan")
  • Shrink
  • Magnets

  • Stationery knife or scalpel
  • Printer
  • Colored tape
  • Needles
    Electronics for model
  • Battery
  • Motor
  • The receiver and the transmitter
  • Servos
  • ESC

    Assembling a RC plane

  • Step 1

    First download drawings (download wolverine.pdf ), print, cut and glue (or glue then cut)
    When gluing is better to use masking tape, as it can be without prejudice to peel off the paper on error

  • Step 2

    Glue all parts using foam glue according to the instructions on the drawing. Spars I have made of wooden sticks for flowers, they are quite long and thin

  • Step 3

    Merge the nose of the plane, so that all parts were kept at the desired angle on the drying time of the adhesive anchoring by needles
    Iron bracket at the top of the photo holds together the two parts of the fuselage, at the time of glueing

  • Step 4

    The fuselage bends in this place, so I pasted a small spar of the line

  • Step 5

    The nose has dried up, it looks like this without needles

    Attach a piece of foam on top of it

    The same with the upper side

  • Step 6

    Sew up the bottom of the fuselage, cover all seams with glue for more strength
    Use needles of course

  • Step 7

    Attach engine mount of PCB

  • Step 8

    Elevons mounted on hinges of scotch or magnetic tape, boar cut from PCB

  • Step 9

    Draft from the servos to the boar I made from bamboo sticks. To it with glue and thread attached clip, then beauty is delayed shrinking
    Careful work with glue such as "Moment" near foam, because one drop of it is able to eat through a big hole!

  • Step 10

    Glue keels. I have too big screw, so we had to make a small slit under it

  • Electronics of the RC plane

  • Step 11

    Install all electronics (battery, speed controller, receiver) in accordance with that centering on the drawing

  • Coloring

  • Step 12

    Cut parts from colored adhesive tape and paste them on the model.
    How to cut: stick tape on the glass and cut with a scalpel

  • Step 13

    Luc hinged on the one hand movably fastened on tape, the other is fixing with magnets

    After assembling and coloring it looks like

ResultsResults and tips

  • Model stable in air
  • Excellent gliding, when any error is always possible to stop motor and stabilize plane
  • This model is quite possible to build and perfect for a beginner
