Maker Hangar is a 15-part video series by Lucas Weakley.
In Episode 10 of Maker Hangar, the second episode of the build series for the Maker Trainer, Lucas Weakley shows us how to build the plane and get it ready for electronics to be installed. We learn how to fold and glue together the fuselage, how to build the tail, how to assemble the wing, and Lucas demonstrates how the plane folds together when not flying. So grab your hot glue gun and a bag of glue sticks and lets get making!
