Model Airplanes Explained – From Static to Flying Models

There are two types of model airplanes, a static non-flying model, or a flying model. This is very important to choose right from the beginning, as construction for each type will vary greatly. Of course though, it is possible to turn a static airplane later on into a flying model, you would just need to do a major overhaul and add the necessities to get it into the air.

Model airplanes that fly can usually be placed into one of the three different groups. The first group is free flight, which basically means that the aircraft is built and designed to fly without any attachment to the ground (not even a remote control).

The second group is control line flying, and this method has a cable or two leading from the wing to the pilot. So of course it is not as realistic as a wireless one is, but it ensures your airplane won’t just fly away.

The last group is radio-controlled model airplanes, which are the most intriguing and fun to fly, since you have complete freedom of movement and YOU get to control it.

There are some rc airplanes that resemble real aircraft, just like static models, but are harder considering that since they actually fly you have to continually keep it looking nice and the engine running smoothly.

R/C aircraft though do come in many different types, as there are even remote control birds, dinosaurs, and flying lawn mowers! The various forms that can be accomplished are endless, and make for some pretty interesting looking aircraft.

For free flight model airplanes, an elastic motor is usually used to power them. An elastic motor is simply a rubber band that is wound up very tight before flying, and then released to make the propeller turn. The elastic motor is actually the most widely used engine for model airplanes, and can be found in children’s toys, all the way to professional model aircraft.

The reason the elastic motor is so popular of course, is because of its simplicity and the ability to have a long lifetime. Also, there is no waiting for the battery to charge or having to buy fuel for the engine. Of course the major drawback is that fact that it can only run for a certain amount of time, which depends on how long your rubber band is.

Another simple propulsion method is storing compressed gas, CO2 to be more specific, and having it come out the back to push it along. You could even get real complicated, and have the CO2 power a piston expansion engine. CO2 engines, like elastic motors, are considered cold power, because the engines become cold when running, not hot like fuel powered engines and batteries.

For most hobbyists though, the standard glow engine is the engine they use. A glow engine runs on the same principal as an internal combustion engine that is in your car, but is a very small version of it.

Most commonly used by rc model airplane enthusiasts, are two stroke cycle engines, which use a glow plug to ignite fuel. The fuel is just a mix of slow burning methanol, nitro methane and some kind of oil lubricant. Company’s who make model airplane glow engines, rate their size in terms of engine displacement. The most common sizes range from 0.01 cubic inch to over 1.0 cubic inch.

The simplest, and most beginner friendly models are electric powered model airplanes, which use a battery to power the engine. The speed is controlled through an electronic speed control, which will regulate the output of the motor. Of course the best model airplanes to put an electric motor in, is small and lightweight ones.

If you want a big, heavy airplane, then a glow engine fuel powered airplane is what you want. If you just want a simple small model airplane, then you want an electric rc airplane.

SKIL PWRCore 12 Brushless 12-Volt 1/2″ Drill Driver With PWRJump Battery Charger Model DL529002



Buy The SKIL PWRCore 12 Brushless 12V 1/2 Inch Cordless Drill Driver on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2RNdWNd
SKIL PWRCore Tools – SKIL has been a major brand in the DIY market and has been purchased by a new company that has plans to turn SKIL into a powerful brand in the DIY market.  This new power will come from the PWRCore 12 batteries that are currently available in 2.0 and 4.0 Ah.  These batteries have a built-in USB port so they can be used daily rather than whenever the specific tool is needed.  If you purchase the PWRJump charger, the batteries can be charged from 0-25% in 5 minutes with the push of a button.  This is very helpful if one needs the tool but the battery is dead or if you need to stay in your project and you kill the battery.

The new SKIL drill is nice and compact with many features that one would expect in a high-end DIY drill.  In many ways, this drill feels like the construction grade drills, just a bit smaller.  The grip and feel are balanced making it easy to use.  We put this drill through its paces while working on our Summit Racing Can-Am Maverick X3 XRS modifications.  We did not wish for more power or fun across anything the drill could not do in plastic or metal during these installations.  When we moved over to construction type tasks, we found the drills limitations fairly fast.  most of the tests we threw at it were based on much larger drills.  Overall, we found that most jobs could easily be done in construction, but on low speed.  As a DIY drill, this will allow the user to complete tasks safely with a smaller drill, just not as fast.

SKIL DL529002 Features
Two speed: 0-450/0-1700rpm
Max Torque of 350in.lbs
17 Torque Clutch Settings
1/2″ Hybrid Chuck accepts 1/4″ Hex
5 Year Limited Warranty
Solid DIY Drill
Over and over the SKIL drill proved that it has a place in the DIY market.  The 350-inch pounds of torque allowed us to complete all the tasks we had lined up for the day and the compact size was easy to use.  This drill driver came in a kit with a single 2.0 Ah battery and the PWRJump charger.  It can be found on Amazon for $73 and comes with a 5-year limited warranty.  While looking, we found we could buy a small brushless DEWALT for $99.  That brings us to a question if this tool is priced right.  The warranty is better than the DEWALT, but will people choose the new SKIL or the DEWALT if they saw those prices.  Time will tell if this brand will again make a mark on the DIY market!

Verizon Ellipsis 8 (Model QTAQZ3) Battery Charging Problem



This Ellipsis 8 tablet – Quanta QTAQZ3 – refused to charge after sitting for a few months. The Verizon Model AD83531 AC Adaptor would not charge it either.

UPDATE: Client sent the unit to Verizon who replaced it.

UPDATE 2016-09-10: Unfortunately, I allowed this tablet to discharge completely again after Verizon / Asus replaced the unit. I got the infamous battery question mark again.

THIS time though, I looked for a higher amp output charger rather than the one that came with it (Model: AD83531, Verizon Accessory P/N: PIE8351BWC, Output 5V == 2A). Turns out my 2015 GMC Sierra USB charger has a higher output. After charging in the truck about an hour, I received the “red” battery indicator and not the question mark. After a while it showed no battery icon – nothing at all. I left it on charge overnight in the GMC then brought it in and put it on the Verizon charger. After 3 mins it showed 2% and as I type this it is at 30% and will boot up.

I immediately recommended that my client purchase an iPad.
