The remote-controlled plane in question is reminiscent of a small single-engine plane.

Think of those planes with propellers at the front – that’s what we’re talking about.

Now, let’s dive into what Tom Stanton has created.

Tom designed and built this air-powered plane entirely from scratch.

In his detailed video, he walks us through the meticulous process, from conception to completion.

His inspiration? The Air Hogs planes – those miniature aircraft fueled by compressed air.

Tom adapted this concept to craft a larger, more powerful version of his own, starting with the wing design.

After that, he tackled the engine development, aiming for a more robust performance, compared to his previous toy planes.

He then focused on crafting efficient propellers, utilizing plastic bottles to store compressed air as fuel, and meticulously shaping the aircraft’s tail.

After meticulous preparation, the air-powered plane was ready for testing.

The result? Astonishingly, this air-powered plane emitted a sound akin to a real engine, albeit not as thunderous as a jet’s roar or Bugatti Chiron’s V16 engine’s sound.

But that’s not all.

Tom’s previous toy plane held a flight time record of 16 seconds, which this new creation shattered with an impressive flight time of 31 seconds.

But the surprises didn’t end there.

Through further flight tests and a few tweaks to the design, Tom managed to extend the flight time to a remarkable 1 minute and 22 seconds.

That’s amazing, isn’t it?

Well, what else do you expect from Tom?

After all, the man has a degree in aerospace engineering and 3D printers fascinate him a lot.

If you too have a taste for wacky experiments like these, his YouTube channel is sure to amaze you.
