DIY: Fly your own built RC plane!In Electronics
The best way to build a Towel is to do it with Brooklyn Aerodrome. The process is for you to get the radio gear/plane parts and obtain a parts kit for $20. The Towel takes around 3 hours to build if you have help from someone who has all the tools/parts and knows how to make the parts. The plane flies well and easy to repair. It’s major parts are the deck, the towel airframe and optional lighting for night flying.
A big part of the Towel is personal responsibility. You are building something from scratch, meaning that it is created from fairly raw materials with your intelligence and drive being the force for success or failure. This is not a Nintendo Wii, this is real physics, your real intelligence and your technical skills. You learn the aerodynamics in this project and explore the world of flyers.
