View Full Version : Star Trek Enterprise-A RC plane
11-10-2009, 06:20 PM
I'm a huge Trekker and didn't know that fellow Electron's Club member John Krietzer was also into the show until he e-mailed me pictures of his RC version of the Enterprise A. It's made out of depron foam from plans that he found in Model Aviation magazine. So this past Sunday we decided to have some fun. I know the music is from The Next Generation but it seemed to fit better editing. Enjoy!

I just posted notes, tips, and photos on assembling one.
Hope my maiden goes as well as yours did!

Thanks Jim: The only issue was the control linkages were flexing. That has since been fixed.

.....only issue was the control linkages were flexing......
I had some of my 1/8" C-F tubes left over, and used them over the control wires. One of my photos shows them. Instructions called for aluminum tubes, but you use what ya got.:roll:

You do indeed. It was not my aircraft (?) but I think the builder was going down the same trail. Thanks for watching.
