Rc Wings

There are many different types of RC airplanes suited to different levels of flyers. One of the most vital features of any such airplane are its RC wings. The structure, location and size of the RC wings help determine how easy, or difficult, it is to guide a plane along a flight path. Flying a Remote Controlled aircraft, especially an airplane, has a lot to do with the parts and their placement, as these facilitate the flying of the plane and determine the ease of control and maneuvering.

Traditionally, there have been three prime locations of the wings of an RC airplane. The high wing, the most primary of the three, is the setup wherein the wing is located high up on the sides of the plane's body or fuselage. This is the simplest form of RC wing that enables smooth flight, mainly due to the glider-like effect of the wings. What this means is that the entire weight of the plane is below the RC wing level, making it as stable and responsive as a glider. Due to the shape and position of the RC wings along with the drag that they create under them, an aircraft with such a setup is slower with the ability to stabilize itself automatically, if caught in a tizzy. Trainers and park flyers like the Piper cub and the Cessna 170 have high RC wings.

For more experienced flyers, the low RC wing style of World War II planes poses more of a challenge as these wing styles have the entire weight of the plane above it, giving them a slight bend or angle so as to increase stability. The airplane is more susceptible to rolls and requires little torque to move into one. The rolls are faster and the plane has wonderful handling for turns and twists. The Mudry CAP 10 is one of those low RC wing planes that are proficient in aerobatics.

Finally, for those who are trained to the topmost level in RC airplanes there is the mid-wing style where the RC wings are placed alongside the plane's fuselage. The RC wings are generally straight and have little or no angle or bend as the plane is brilliantly balanced whether upside-down or in normal flight. Despite this, the RC wings shape means that the plane does not have any natural flying position, meaning that stabilizing the plane requires much more than just dropping the controls to neutral. However, for those who can, the RC wing style offers boundless scope for aerobatics, as any amount of leverage draws a fantastic reaction from the plane, especially in turning or rolling.

So the next time you choose an RC airplane, be sure to know the kind of RC wings you would need to suit your flying ability.
