The giant R/C models atract a lot of the attention on the shows! They are built by the most experienced modellers and flown by very experienced pilots! You should carefuly judge your capabilities when considering building of this model.

If you're going to build your first giant R/C model think about several important issues firstly.

Workshop space

Do you have sufficient space in your workshop? Moving wings of 200x70 cm size each, or fuselage of 3 meters length, 90 cm high weghting close to 30 kgs is not an easy task. Do you have big enough door to get the model in and out of your workshop?

Garage size

You'll need a space where you'll be able to assemble the model, ideally indoor. To do so you need a room with at least 5x4 meters space.

Storage

If you store your model in a garage, your car probably won't fit in any more.

Handling

You won't be able to lift the model or even just the fuselage by yourself. You probably can lift 30 kgs weight but lifting up 30 kgs fuselage by hand  holding it by the joining tube in it's center of gravity is good for a well trained body builder not for most of the modellers.

Transportation

Unless you've got a realy large SUV or real estate car you won't be able to load your model inside the car. Even if you disassemble the model to maximal possible extend, the risk that the model will be damaged during the transportation is bigger than that it will be crashed during flying. A trailer of 3x1.5 meters size is the reccommended way of transportation.

Cost

Last but definitely not least issue to incude in your consideration! Let consider the following cost:

DXF Plans                                                      €10 :-)

Ply Wood, Balsa, Fiber Glass                       €200

Glues                                                           €100

Ceconite                                                      €100

Painting                                                      €300

Accessories                                                 €400

Motor                                                       €2,000

Electronics                                               €3,000

 

Good Luck!

Important Change

After several years of using subscription model on these pages, I've decided to change it to a sales model. Starting from July 31, 2016 the plans and drawings can be purchased and downloaded from my eshop at a marketplace Model Hobby Market.

The users already registered on this web bellancasuperdecathlon.com with both valid and expired membership can still login. They will be able to download the photo packages only, not the CAD drawings. The users with valid membership who have not downloaded the CAD drawings yet can contact me, I'll be happy to send them the drawings they are missing.

A free registration is now available to everybody. All registered users can download the photos shown in the gallery from the Downloads section as zipped files. However to get the CAD drawings please visit my shop at Model Hobby Market.

Thank you

Jindrich
