Guy Turns Classic LEGO Set Into an RC Airplane That Actually Flies

This is proof that you can make your LEGO dreams come true. Adam Woodworth, an aerospace engineer and hardware designer at Google, wanted to see how aeronautically sound a LEGO airplane design really was, so naturally he built his own to test it out, building a large RC version of it.

The plane is based on a 27-year-old LEGO set called the Solo Trainer. He made the plane from several types of foam and it’s a beautiful replica of the original LEGO model. It actually flies very nicely despite the fact that it doesn’t look very aerodynamic.

Adam’s first attempt ended in motor failure and a crash, but he did not give up, and rebuilt the plane. It took a lot of time but it was well worth the effort. It’s not like the Wright Brothers succeeded on their first attempt either.
