Fair weather this afternoon and overcast so I was hoping for a reasonable range of control with the IR set-up. It looks like I only get about 20 feet at full charge and as soon as the charge drops the range drops. The motor cuts as soon as the plane gets out of range and the turning radius is not tight enough to keep it in range so I have to chase after it. Not quite the performance I was hoping for. This Biplane is powered and controlled with the parts from a cheap rc helicopter that I bought for £4.99 brand new in the 99p Store.

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.
