Scratch model builders will be interested in this video series created by Conor O’Neill. He’s put together a playlist of videos detailing his build of ‘Millie Bob’ from start to finish, including maiden flight! People interested in getting started with scratch building will not want to miss this – very informative.
Millie Bob was designed by Tony Wright as the first model aeroplane for his daughter to learn to fly R/C. So, it uses a low cost 3S motor set to minimise cost and to keep things simple and it has a wingspan of 44 inches.
