Awesome Flitetest

Building a 15-Foot Iron Giant

Building a 15-Foot Iron Giant

The guys from FliteTest spend most of their time building and flying model aircraft. One of the materials they use to build flying machines is FT Maker Foam. Josh took some time out from flying to build a huge model of the Iron Giant out of the lightweight foam board. It ended up being much larger than he had initially planned.

Most airplanes do just fine with one to four engines. But that didn’t stop the guys at FliteTest, their pal Peter Sripol, and a team of volunteers from building a remote-controlled plane with 25 engines on each of its wings. The massive foam and cardboard plane has a wingspan of 30 feet. We’re amazed it could lift its own weight.

Josh over at FliteTest wanted to put together something fun and easy-to-build after the holidays, so he took some leftover wrapping paper and used it to form the wings for a remote-controlled airplane. The glider-style wing design is pretty nifty.
