How do you determine the wingspan of an RC plane?

Step 5: Decide on a Wingspan Now that you have the total wing area needed, you can divide that number to find a wingspan and wing chord (width from front of wing to back). For example, I divided my wing area (900 square inches) by 12 and got a wingspan of 75 inches.

How high can you fly a RC plane?

The maximum altitude allowed for flying RC planes and helicopters is 400 feet above ground level in the United States. Planes and helicopters can go much higher than that but they would be breaking the law.

How is wing aspect ratio calculated?

The Aspect Ratio of a wing is defined to be the square of the span divided by the wing area and is given the symbol AR. For a rectangular wing, this reduces to the ratio of the span to the chord length as shown at the upper right of the figure.

How big can a RC plane be?

Giant Scale radio control airplanes have a minimum wingspan of eighty inches for single-wing airplanes, and a minimum wingspan of 60 inches for multi-wing airplanes.

How big should airplane wings be?

Similarly, the Boeing 367-80, or the Dash 80, has a wingspan of 40 meters (130 feet). So, an ordinary commercial airline plane would be roughly 40-50 meters (130-160 feet), while a private plane, like a Cessna 150, would be around 10 meters (33 feet).

How big is the wing span of a DC 3?

Wing Span: 103.9″ Length: 70.5″ Flying Weight: 19.8 lbs. fly scale model DC-3, the plane that revolutionized the airplane, top plane from 1930s to present. Converted military to civil.

What kind of flying does the addiction do?

Apart from excellent 3D flight characteristics, the Addiction performs very well in the precision flying department, allowing you to mix 3D and precision and widen the scope of aerobatic maneuvers that can be mastered and performed.

Is the ESM DC-3 A RC scale airplane?

The Douglas DC-3 produced by ESM, is yet another top notch RC scale airplane design to excite you with both appearance and performance. ESM of China has been importing RC scale airplanes into the USA and Canada for a few years now, and in that time ESM has become recognized as a new industry leader in highly detailed, great flying, ARF’s.

What makes the addiction so good at aerobatics?

The Addiction’s forgiving and stable nature makes it exceptionally easy to hover vertically without much aileron input. Torque rolls are slow, smooth and stable requiring very little control corrections. This means you’ll be able to torque roll with the rudder merely inches above the ground.
