How its Made

Now I was just called upstairs by my daughter to watch the show How its made. We both enjoy watching it but today it was about RC Jets and the making of.. Now I came up as they where making up a glass wing in a mould and then wood skeleton and then another glass skin . Well i won't go into more as I am sure you can either google it or find it on again. It definitely was worth the watch

Re: How its Made

Have seen it before.. It's the BVM factory.. We all need to send in ideas (the show always asks for them) for them to go to the Saito,OS,DA,Futaba,JR or whatever factory's and do a show on it... You never know!!!

Here is a copy of it on YouTube.


No sound but you get the idea.


If you want awesome, you have to scratch build it!

Re: How its Made

I seen it as well. What impressed me was that at no time did they refer to these as toys and many times they did refer to these as models that need alot of expeirence to not just build but fly as well.

Re: How its Made

I love that show. Being a mechanic it has always interested me as to how things go together. This show has given me a lot of ideas over the years and is definitely worth watching.

Thanks for posting the U-Tube video although I had a problem with the sound. Cranked as high as I was able to, I could barely hear any of the commentary. Any one alse find this as well or was I doing something wrong?

Re: How its Made

Going to see if the show is repeated in the next while. I generally find the episodes interesting and eclectic.

Perhaps we can get some of the other kit manufacturers to do segments, like the foam jet guys, or the PSS or dynamic slopers.....

Maybe this would be a good idea for the RC tv show....
