L'enfant Terrible du RCIndia




Ever since I can remember, I had wanted to build this model. Finally got hold of some rudimentary plans here:

http://wright.nasa.gov/airplane/air1903.html

http://wright.nasa.gov/ROGER/1903model.htm

And some fantastic pictures here that helped me redesign it to a semi scale subject:

http://www.griffwason.com/wright_flyer_1903-2.htm

http://www.wright-brothers.org/Information_Desk/Help_with_Homework/Wright_Plans/Wright_Plans.htm

Work is still in progress, rigging, dummy engine, hip cradle and pilot figure is in the process of being designed.

Hope you all like her, she has a wingspan of 37cms.

Used Boiling hot water to achieve the camber.

Pic 7 shows the test fit

Pic 8 shows the prop mounts glued in place

Pic 10 shows the rudder assembly. The one given in the NASA plans is grossly incorrect. It has to be 7cms in length (longer side) to maintain scale.

Props built out of balsa and warped using boiling hot water. Finishing yet to be done.

Material used are Styro plates, toothpicks (wooden and plastic), kebab skewers and scrap balsa.

More pics will follow as I continue building.

RC, thanks a ton!

Information sharing improves knowledge of both.



VC Sir,

Nice to see.
I have used the plate round corners cut for prop blades. The rounded edge will give more strength and variable gradient. The center axle of wood pasted with the blades. The wood piece (In my case, Icecream stick cut piece). filed with diamond file and pasted with favicol but that is a 12 inch prop. For scale model your prop should not exceed 3" for a 14" wingspan.

The rubber powered model would be fine. But Do you want it to make RC? I want to know other details off your plan. you may make this free flight powered model also.

Thanks again showing the true modeling spirit again.

Thanks Kalyan. She is now a static semi scale model. I have no plans of motorising her now.

Finished applying the first coat of paint, achieved the desired 'cream muslin' effect. Two types of wood were used in the construction of the Flyer 3 - Ash and Spruce. I need to find out which was used where and paint the components accordingly. Planning to use heat stretched plastic sprue (from plastic model kits) for the rigging. The propeller tips and the wing trailing edges need to be reshaped. props will have to be painted aluminium silver grey. (Though they were carved out of beech wood, the Wright Brothers wanted to keep the public guessing and hence had them painted Aluminium Silver Grey to mask their true origins-Crafty!!!)

These are my observations and the resultant p.o.a. for now.

Beautiful looking model of the airplane that started it all.If you do want to motorize it,how hard will it be and is it possible in the first place?

It would be wonderful to see this fly.

On another note,what do you fly sir?

You help people make their dream planes and teach them how to fly and promote the hobby and teach kids lots of stuff about airplanes.

But what planes do you have that you fly regularly?

That is the saddest part! I have a MiG 29 Twin Ducted fan, an Eurofighter Single Ducted fan (amongst others) and THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN FLOWN!!! I am fairly confident about my modelling skills but not at all confident about my flying or RC skills! I fly co axial Helis regularly, both indoor and outside, I have about 7 different models in different sizes. I do have a HK 450 kit waiting to be built. I am more into sailing and Hovercrafts. That's me. Thanks for asking!
