Follow along with Lucas and build three custom R/C aircraft.


MAKE Magazine and Lucas Weakley have teamed up to bring you Maker Hangar, a 23-episode tutorial series that will teach you everything you need to know to build and fly three custom R/C aircraft.

It can be daunting to get started with your first R/C plane. What motor and speed controller should you get? How should you charge the batteries? What is a BEC and why do you need one? How do you fly?!

Maker Hangar answers these questions and more. A one-stop, free resource that anyone can use to easily get into the R/C hobby. Plus, join a community of more than 1,000 members all sharing pictures, videos, and knowledge.
