Hello World,This blog is about building an RV-4 RC balsa plane by Great Planes from a kit. This is my first build and it is far from being perfect. I will supply a small comment with each step of the build that you can see on a corresponding picture.
Build such plane if you want to have an idea about what balsa planes are all about.
Your mistakes are very important as you learn from them (incorrect cutting of sticks that are too short, warped wings, burned holes in the monokote, etc. )
You will learn tons of important techniques from pinning a part to the gypsum board (those work great by the way) to covering the model with plastic covering such as monokote.
