Biographie de l'auteur

Breck Baldwin has been building and flying model aircraft since he was a child. He founded the Brooklyn Aerodrome in 2005 to support flying art, education, and technology developments around remote-controlled aircraft. Baldwin authored a cover story for Make magazine, Volume 30, featuring the Towel, a delta-wing aircraft that can be built in an afternoon and for less than $100. He does professional flying engagements featuring custom-built art planes for festivals and corporate events. Baldwin also teaches adults and children how to build aircraft out of his studio. He has a PhD in computer science from the University of Pennsylvania and is the president and founder of LingPipe.

Surefire fun for Old and New Family Fliers 28 juin 2013
Par Ian S. Burgess - Publié sur
Format: Broché
"DIY RC Airplanes from Scratch" is a perfect introduction to the would-be flier who might have been initially too afraid to undertake such a project. The book successfully takes the reader from land to air in easy steps which encourage experimentation, learning, family fun, and most importantly, trial and error. The initial build is outlined in easy steps which explain both the how and the why of each bit in the process. I particularly enjoyed the later chapter on aerodynamics which went into greater detail on the science of flying the "Flack." I am presently undertaking a Flack build with my kids aged, 4-9, and they are super excited to be taking part in this. Each step we take is a super fun exploration into Making, building, and exploring. We are really looking forward to our maiden flight down the road.

This is truly a book for the family who believes that the best times in life are spent together making something together. Go out and get yourself started. Thanks, Breck!

Breck Baldwin's "DIY RC Airplanes from Scratch" book is an absolute game changer. 18 juin 2013
Par Ed - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Breck Baldwin's "DIY RC Airplanes from Scratch" book is an absolute game changer. This is not your ordinary RC experience, but a unique process that is fun and easy to build, quick to fly, fun to decorate,
and is highly adaptable to experimental designs if you want to take it to the next level.

Early on my kids and I had a chance to test drive an early draft of the book. The step by step instructions, complete with detailed photographs, made the process fun and educational.
Now that the book is complete, it raises the bar in delivering clear, concise and detailed information in a fun and inspiring way.

We first saw Breck Baldwin's Brooklyn Aerodrome at the Maker Faire, where creative and innovative designs are showcased.
His demonstrations were drawing huge crowds and rave reviews.
The design, the precision flying capabilities, the off the shelf components and his description immediately inspired us and we knew that we had to build our own "Flack" (a Flying Hack).

The innovative design is well thought out. The design of the plane is unique in its ability to bring together stability, high performance acrobatics with an interchangeable components platform.
It is very light and has a large wingspan with significant power to dive, spin and loop. The soft frame has the components set further back on its own removable platform.
This innovative feature is not only safer, but allows for a quick change to another frame or design.

The modular approach, combined with inexpensive foam board, allows for quick experimentation with many design and decorating options.
This unique approach sets this book apart and will hopefully do its part in inspiring another generation of life long learners and help bring out the scientist in each of us.

Not only is it a great book for DIY enthusiasts, RC builders and model makers, but I would highly recommend this to parents, student groups and schools as a project that is fun to build and fly,
demonstrates the principles of physics, aerodynamics, electronics and brings out the creativity and passion for learning.

A must have for beginners and hobbyists 23 juin 2013
Par Darin - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is very thorough - from the basics of aerodynamics and electronics, through the build of your first RC airplane, how to fly (and how to crash), and into advanced customization of your creation. The book promotes creativity and individuality. Easy and enjoyable to read for makers of any skill level. The book has plenty of photos detailing the procedure.

The build instructions walk you through every step of the process, and head off all potential mistakes that a reader/builder could make. It covers parts availability, alternatives, and suggestions for purchasing. This isn't like the instruction manual for a pre-fab RC kit - you can easily succeed even without every part and every tool. Anyone who has access to items like wire hangers and packing tape can end up with a very flyable plane.

In a way, the book also promotes making mistakes. Nothing that's worth doing in life isn't without making mistakes. The book (and the flack) show how easy it is to recover from a mistake and improve from it. This is a better alternative than being intimidated away from a project for fear of screwing it up.

I find it hard to write this review on only the book and not the design of the flack airplane - but both exert the same idea: doing a lot with just a little. Sometimes people just need to be shown that it's possible, in order for them to be inspired to try. This is the basis of the maker movement.

I first saw the flack (or the "towel" back then) at Maker Faire 2011. When I saw the kit available at the Faire in 2012, I immediately purchased the kit, and am glad that I did. Fun to build, fun to fly, and recovers easily from crashes. The plane travels well and I know that it's good for plenty of flying for years to come.

Keep up the good work Breck!

A must have reference 14 juin 2013
Par M. Lamboy - Publié sur
Format: Broché
After meeting a member of the Brooklyn Aerodrome at Figment NYC I began searching for sources on the internet and found some interesting odds and ends with most lacking critical information. I took the building/flying class in July of 2012 and found it thoroughly enjoyable. For the last few days I've pawed this book like a spy thriller during my few "free" moments, and resented every interruption. Given the wit and wisdom contained in these pages anyone interested in RC aircraft should have this book as it will quickly pay for it self by avoiding waste, breakage and misguided flailing. All I can add is; I wish Mr. Baldwin and his team would teach people writing Computer Science and Math books how to write texts that are more than just impressive to other faculty members. Better yet please write some texts on CS and Math, our students (me) will thank you.

Blue Foam Blues 1 septembre 2013
Par consumer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a great book and I'm anxious to get started building my own RC plane from scratch. I've run in to a problem right off the bat. A lot of stock is placed in this book about the utility of Dow fan-fold HPU insulation with plastic bonded to both sides (a.k.a. Blue foam or Bluecor). The problem is, I just can't seem to find it anywhere. Not online, and not at any local bricks-and-morter builders supply store here in Northern California. My understanding is that it's really not building code compliant and there just isn't much commercial use for it. Does anyone know of an on-line source for it? Has anyone built the "Flack" using a reliable substitute? How about Owens Corning Foamular 1/4 inch fanfold (Pink Foam)? That is available locally. Has anyone had success with that?
