  • I remember buying this styrofoam airplane and play it until it was broken - usually not for long (Picture above are: Power Prop Flying Gliders Type 4 Fighter Hayate)

    AN ALTERNATE IDEA TO PAINTING: I printed the template and tracedit over discard paper (junk mail). Eric colored the paper templates and then gluedthem on to the Styrofoam templates (a very thin coat). We only did the top of the wingsand tail that way, but both (2 paper templates) sides of the airplane body. It works anddon't have to mess around with the acrylic paints, etc. Four of them would make a neatlarge mobile as well.

    In this video I show how to make a styrofoam airplane that I invented. This is no rc airplane but is fun too ! This styrofoam airplane is very easy to make. In a few minutes you can make your own styrofoam airplane. Simple material is needed. It can be a first glance to rc airplanes for children.

    The airplane is made of 3mm styrofoam sheet. You can buy them in DIY stores (sheets of styrofoam are for walls insulation)

    The airplane is a Rafale (French equivalent of the US F16 airplane).

    It can fly approximatively 10 meters in straight line without rc.

    Place bets !
    These planes are made of sheets of styrofoam (depron sheet) and are no rc airplanes. These airplanes are very easy to make. Kids can make it easily.

    $5 Styrofoam planes?

    Hi, has anyone built a RC plane out of those really cheap styrofoam deals that can be bought at hobby stores? They're like 4' long and glide extremely well.

    Does anyone have recommendations as to what motor I should use? I have most of the electrical equipment except my speed controllers only handle up to 8A.

    Thanks,

    Nathan-d

Launch the aeroplane by putting a rubber band around the bent portion of the straw with your non-dominant hand. Pull back on the tail end of the aeroplane with your other hand and point it upward and away from anyone's face. Release the tail end of your styrofoam plane and watch it soar.
