Model Plane: Little Piper
Sunday October 22, 2017

 

 Model Plane for Building Course

The model plane used in the building class was designed by the BPMV Mannheim flying club, and is called the Little Piper. It's been used successfully for many years for indoor model building classes and flight instruction, and was also used for science experiments at Edgar Middle School and Campbell Elementary School in Metuchen.

The kit will be obtainable through the Tri County RC Club. Participants will be asked at the first session if they wish to build an indoor plane or just learn to fly using a Ready to Fly (RTF) model.
