The hobby of model helicopters also means working with different tools and materials. Our authors explain how best to do this with step-by-step instructions. Gunther Winkle, for example, shows how to build your own fuselage using plastic sheets. Although the use of GRP material is common practice, the plastic panels nevertheless have some advantages over a GRP hull. Furthermore, Hendrik Medrow presents a very interesting alternative for displaying scale details – all that is needed is an image editing program and decal foils. And those who are not afraid of programming functional parts should take a look at the article about Arduino programming for servo control.
A lot of things sound complex at first glance, but with a little patience, even the less experienced can program an Arduino board. Another focus is tips on heli assembly: assembling a heli mechanic is a challenge with many question marks for many pilots. In this issue, we show which tools are needed and how to build up to the final setup.
If you have any questions about heli assembly, please feel free to send them to us. Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will answer the questions as part of the article series. These are just some of the topics we have collected for you in this issue – and now enjoy reading the new issue.
