Solar Powered Model Biplane – fun for all ages


solarpowredmodelbiplane Solar Powered Model Biplane   fun for all ages

Solar panels are being used for almost everything these days and now you can build the Solar Powered Model Biplane, which comes in a put-together kit. Its working propeller is powered by solar panels placed on the tip of each wing.

With wooden pieces that slot together, the plane needs no glue to assemble, so it’s perfect for ages 6 on up. Weighing only 200g (just under 7 ounces), this model plane is small enough to put on a desk or shelf. Its solar panels can even work with only desk light.

If you’re looking for a craft project to do with your kids, this would be it. You can educate them about how solar works and build a cool plane too. Just remember, though, the plane won’t fly.

Construct a wooden biplane with a working propeller powered by its own solar panel. Made from laser cut plywood for easy, no glue, assembly the Solar Powered Biplane Kit is a great demonstration of how efficiently modern solar cells work even when the only available light is from a desk light.
