rc models

dakota yellow c-47 dakota, rc plane

historic the douglas dakota is an airplane that is well known in switzerland due to a plane that crash-landed onto gauli glacier in the bernese oberland in 1946. to this day remains of the airplane are occasionally recovered from the glacier. some of them are on display in innertkirchen. the dakota existed in several variants (c-47, […]

sno explorer sno explorer, tracked rc vehicle

objective design and build a tracked rc vehicle using mostly 3d printed parts. prototype a new law regulating the use of larger rc quadcopters is looming over rc pilots in switzerland. this made me think about how i could reuse larger brushless motors in the future since i have many heavy models that will require some […]

RCCarSmall_tiny rc car chassis 1:16

objective build a simple 1:16 rc model made of mostly 3d printed parts. design i am not really an rc car driver aficionado but i find it it very interesting to design and build rc cars. my previous rc car project, the 1:6 rc car chassis, took quite a long time to design, build and […]

Bindli_total_smallest quadcopter #11 (micro fpv 150 mm)

a 3d printed quadcopter having an outer shell as its main support structure was the aim when i designed this small quadcopter. its main characteristics are: 150 mm diagonal motor distance 300 g takeoff weight 3″ propellers dys 1306-3100 kv motors dys 10 a blheli esc’s cc3d atom flight controller (running betaflight) frsky tfr6 receiver […]

210_quad_cat_pic quadcopter #10 (210 class)

the 250 quadcopters are great to take along on hikes for filming. but there is still room for further miniaturization without having to bullnose the 5 inch propellers. the 210 class appears to be pretty much the minimum that makes sense. so here is a homemade 210 class quadcopter. the size offers another advantage, at […]

quadcopter #9 (250 class)

the 250 size quadcopter seems to become a favorite among fpv pilots. this type is small, light, fast, agile and therefore lots of fun to fly. i tried it myself with the following setup: naze32 rev5 flight controller frsky tfr6 rc receiver 2206 2150kV multistar v2 motors turnigy plush 10amp esc’s mini cmos 520tvl fpv […]

v-tail rc plane v-tail rc plane

this is an attempt at building a simple and small fpv plane. simple because the wing is straight having the same clark y airfoil over the entire wing span. small because it has a wing span of 700 mm and weighs around 500 grams. the plane consists of six separate parts, the fuselage, the two […]

hexacopter folding multiwii hexacopter

after having built many different quadcopters it was about time to build something bigger and better. here it is my first foldable multiwii hexacopter. the motor mounts are made of 3d printed abs plastic. they are attached to 15 mm aluminum square tubes. the tubes are hinged to a center plate using 3d printed abs […]

rc car chassis 1:6

most components of the chassis are either 3d printed or laser cut. the laser cut pieces could as easily be built with a 3d printer. the other components such as the motor, wheels, etc. are either from traxxas or hobbyking. the design of the chassis was created in creo elements express 4.0 from ptc. it […]

c30 rc car body (volvo c30)

the car body is still a work in progress. it is based on top, side and front views from volvo. they were used in blender to build a low poly 3d mesh of the car body. the smoothed mesh was then transferred to freecad, converted to a step file. this file was imported into creo […]
