Rc Rubber Planes
RC rubber planes are a breath of fresh air in a world full of complex machinery and even more complicated technology. RC Rubber planes work on a motor that is wound up with the help of a special rubber band; yes you read it right, rubber bands. The simplicity of this technology is largely responsible for its appeal. In fact many parts of RC rubber planes are also put together with the help of rubber bands.
For some people it might be hard to believe that a rubber band can make a plane fly. But RC rubber planes not only fly great, but they also give good performance in terms of both speed and control. They work based on the very basic principle of kinetic energy. Initially RC rubber planes were built as a toy for kids, but the engineering of those toys was much simpler than today?s RC rubber planes. Also traditionally RC rubber planes were made with Balsa wood as it gives a lot of flexibility and strength to the plane.
Today RC rubber powered models are made of materials like balsa, plastic, fiberglass and foam as well. Some models also employ a combination of two or three of these materials. RC rubber powered models are also extremely easy to operate. All you have to do is, wind up their motor by wrapping the rubber band around it and release it. Being extremely light weight, you can take your RC rubber planes anywhere you want. These planes make wonderful park flyers, but as you won?t have much control on them; it is might be a little impractical to race them.
Apart from that, if you are interested in building model planes, you can also buy RC rubber plane kits from the market. The simple technology behind the model, makes it a breeze to construct, and is a good project for novices. Also being nearly silent, RC Rubber planes won?t get you in trouble for the noise, but be sure to fly them in an empty space. So whether you are an absolute novice or a time-hardened pro, your tryst with the world of RC is incomplete without flying RC Rubber planes, at least once.
