Aerodynamics for Dummies

|
+2

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a single RC-hobbyist-oriented article on aerodynamics in forums, diaries or blogs, and there were no good references to the subject. Meanwhile, it raises a world of questions, which particularly concern novice hobbyists, and many of those who have dismissed themselves from the ranks of newbies won’t turn a hair to peep into a textbook. Well, I’m here to fix that!)))

I won’t enlarge upon it, because it takes as much as scientific research to highlight all aspects and a whole bunch of abracadabra formulas! All the more so, I won’t obliterate you with scary terms like the Reynolds Number, about which the most curious of you can read later.

Well, let’s make a vow: nothing except the minimum RC-hobbyist-oriented stuff!)))

How to make wheels for lightweight RC airplanes using shrink tubing and other makeshift materials.

My first hand-crafted RC aircraft was a lightweight Cessna 150. I cut wheels out of a ceiling tile, and, even though they looked beautiful, they collapsed during takeoff. The little incident got the rats in my attic to run around for new ideas. I wanted a quick, reliable and aesthetically vivid solution. I realized that manufactured wheels were less than expensive, but I knew the delivery service was slow as hell. What I found online was the technology of crafting wheels from foam rubber or using old sneakers. In my house I found neither.
