Kensington Woods Students Build RC Planes
« on: February 04, 2018, 07:38:33 PM »
Students from Kensington Woods School are building foamboard Cub RC planes this semester.

Their teacher, Ms. Brown, sought the assistance of the Hamburg Flyers last year.

This year, Flite Test's 'Simple Cub' was selected as the basis for the project, with the students doing a full build from scratch.


Having fun learning building techniques and the fundamentals of flight.

We have 5 kids involved in the project. Noah, Connor, Victoria, Izzy, and Cody.

They have done everything from scratch. Plans were printed out and taped together, then attached to the raw foamboard sheets. The students then cut out the pieces with x-acto knives. The only thing we've put glue on so far is the power pods, but assembly of the rest is imminent! :)
