How One YouTuber Constructed A Remote-Control 1:21 Scale Airbus A380

Youtuber Ramy RC recently uploaded a video showing him successfully constructing and testing a remote-controlled replica of an Airbus A380. The video has had over 650,000 views as of the time of writing since it was posted on Ramy RC’s YouTube channel.

The creator of this popular movie documents the planning process, construction and assembly of the model airplane, and eventually its “maiden flight.” The video claims that it took a year to finish the full project, which included parts for the wings and fuselage of the airplane as well as the electronic system that controlled the flight.

wing and fuselage

The Airbus A380 model’s fuselage mold was first created in a computer program and then converted to three-dimensional (3D) form.

The complete fuselage was then built using a series of casts from the molds that were used to make it.

Ramy created bulkheads to replicate the interior of the airplane and to fortify the internal structure of the aircraft model while also connecting the different pieces of the fuselage together with tape. After that, the fuselage was filled with gear mounts and other electronic parts to provide room for the wings to be attached.

An aircraft’s wings are crucial for keeping it in the air during flight even though the fuselage makes up the majority of its mass. In order to make sure that his wing design could resist the weight of the complete aircraft, Ramy 3D printed his wing design and then added reinforcements, which were made of a light wooden substance and produced in the same way.

As the aircraft was being prepared for its first flight, the wings were next affixed to both sides of the fuselage and a number of instruments and electronics were mounted inside. land-based systems and engines

An aircraft would not be able to take flight without the fuselage, wings, a working engine, or in the case of the Airbus A380, four engines, as well as landing gear to help with landing. However, the steam fans for the engines and the wheels for the landing gear were bought.

The YouTuber only created the fuselage and the wings entirely. Even so, Ramy used 3D printing and his own electrical parts to finish the engine’s outer shell and the wiring for the fans. A set of pre-made wheels are connected to form the landing gear.

To help balance the aircraft when it lands on the runway, four retractable pieces—one placed beneath each of the engines—are attached to the main fuselage.


The electronics system completed the installation. Ramy mounted a massive board with the equipment needed for both remote controls and to enable the plane to fly in the middle of the fuselage of the craft. He also created a mechanism that gave the pilot control over the flaps and the engines.

The plane’s top has a sizable hatch that can be pushed back to show the fuselage and a number of devices, allowing access to all the equipment needed for the aircraft. At this point, the aircraft was prepared to take off.

Initial Takeoff

Ramy first painted the fuselage in the regular Emirates livery before bringing the model to a nearby flat location with a “tarmac runway.” The Airbus A380 model successfully overtook, traversed the skies, and touched down unharmed on its first flight.

This project was quite impressive and a success. Even so, Ramy had previously made models of other planes on his YouTube channel in addition to the Airbus A380.
