The skinny is this!! You’ve built you’re RC plane and/or
car, it’s the coolest thing since sliced bread and you’ve mastered all the
basic techniques on how to operate your killer RC unit. What next? Bad ass
stunts and tricks, of course! Can you handle some of these? Why yes, yes you
can! Let’s play…and play hard with these! Carry on!
For all you RC plane enthusiasts:
- You want to keep your plane at least 50 feet off the ground and make sure
you are flying level. Aim the plane so that it is flying straight ahead.
- Raise the RC airplane’s throttle to the maximum while pulling the elevator
stick towards you as gently as possible. Make sure you hold the elevator all
the way back so your airplane can do the first part of the loop.
- Once the plane reaches the apex of the loop, lower the RC airplane’s
throttle. Leave the elevator stick in the same position as the plane finishes
the second half of the loop. Holding the elevator stick back will bring the
plane vertically through it.
- Finally, put the elevator stick into the neutral position as soon as the
plane finishes the loop. Then slowly open up the throttle to keep the plane
steady as it goes back to its normal flight path.
- With the RC airplane in a straight flight path, push up on the elevator
stick. You want the nose of the RC airplane to point upward so the RC airplane
will stay at the same height while it rolls.
- Now push the rudder to the left, which allows the plane to enter the roll.
- Once the RC plane finishes the roll, put the elevator stick into the
- Finally, move the elevator stick down just enough so that the plane
straightens back out after it has finished the roll.
plane? No problem! Get those RC Cars out for some cray-cray-ziness:
#1: MidAir Flip
your ramp in an area with plenty of space. A good idea would be a large backyard or park.
your remote control truck a good distance from the ramp.
- Accelerate! Steer towards the ramp and go
a few times to practice. Just jump without any tricks until you get the hang of it.
you have practiced a few times, do the same thing, but this time accelerate
sharply while the car is on the ramp.
to full speed or reverse full speed in mid-air, depending on whether you want
to do a front or back flip.
- Now you
can flip a remote control car! Go show off to your friends!
#2: The RC Drift
- You will need an RC drift car that has 4 wheel drive
like the nitro RC drift cars or the electric RC drift cars.
- Electric RC cars are better than nitro for those with
- Smooth tires are necessary when learning how to drift.
- The track must be low-friction. Four wheel drive is
necessary when you are figuring out how to drift. Without this element of
control, your car won't slide the way it is supposed to, and it may well flip
during the experience. Learning how to drift takes time, so dig the experience.
Electric RC cars won't break down while you're learning how to drift.
- Lastly, remember that the drifting experience only
works with a low-friction track or with a high powered car (preferably nitro)
that won't lose speed on a sticky surface. Happy Drifting!
Time to play! Play hard, play well!
