“Foam Core Wings” is a play on words. This page is not only about how to create light but durable foam core wings for RC planes. It is a DIY page for those who want to learn how to use fairly low tech (no CNC here) methods to build very light but durable RC planes. The resulting planes not only look very professional but also fly great. The processes used for plane and wing construction will be outlined in detail through posts here and videos on YouTube. Also, we will include information on how to build some of the tools used during construction.
My son and I had been using my nice black hardtop on the Rallycross Miata. We wanted one that was not as nice since there is a lot of mud and dust flying around during a rallycross. So, we bought a damaged hardtop to put on the Rallycross Miata. This hardtop had been on a […]
Construction: Foam core wings often require holes drilled long distances into the foam to accommodate servo wires and wing tubes. Keeping these holes in proper alignment is almost impossible using a hand drill or even a common drill press. This is how we constructed a drill to drill almost perfectly aligned holes deep into a […]
I finally got the AEM F/IC6 installed in March 2015 and ready to run. Now all that is left is to tune it. I called AEM support to get the unit working. They flashed the unit and helped me to be sure it was working. I tested the unit by loading a zeroed out calibration […]
