Ceiling Tethered Electric Plane




I modified a toy fighter plane to fly around in my conservatory tethered to the ceiling. It is rather over powered and quite wild.

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
