We Modded RC Cars to FLY! *EXTREME DROP TEST CHALLENGE*

We Modded RC Cars to FLY! *EXTREME DROP TEST CHALLENGE*
oh don't do that don't do that what's up guys say we're modding rc

cars

to fly and then we're

drop

ping it off a giant 2000 foot clip okay maybe it's not that high anyways you can build whatever contraption you want on your rc car you just got to get it safely to the ground so there are going to be two types of

cars

one the easy car which is small to the difficult car which is gigantic now if you can get your car safely to the ground you get a point you get one point for
we modded rc cars to fly extreme drop test challenge
the small car and three points for that gigantic car jeff's gonna start building first so let's get started do it so this is the car i'm working with as you can see nice and colorful very colorful so what we're doing here is we're going to turn this into a glider using foam board and some dowels and some glue and some tape and uh yeah fantastic so this is a very complicated process because planes operated are very specific physical lots first we got to create an airfoil which
is the wing and with the specific shape so it creates enough lift to fly these are what i'm using to support the wing they're called wing spars i'm also using a dowel we have a very specific technique to create a fold and foam board there's a line here is that a very specific measurement it looks like nothing great right now but just wait keep in mind this is the first time i actually ever made an airplane out of foam board okay now what we must do is we got to start folding this
up here we don't want to do it too much we don't want to break the foam board do the same thing with this one nice and easy do that and i'm a little nervous i did not want to break it because that means i have to do all these measurements again so now i'm actually able to bend this all the way down and we have not broken anything oh this is perfect this is absolutely exactly what i need these are going to be little sparse slash spar holders and then the wooden supporting spar is
going to go in between all right so now we're going to apply hot glue and we're going to put the spar right here and now we must apply glue on this side as well so you guys can see the lines but trust me these are very measured out and as you will see it creates this little slot will actually go right in perfectly our next step is to fold this guy over you guys can see that airfoil shape we're trying to get just probably don't know what that looks like but trust me i do and
we're basically going to match the same exact wing over here attach them together so we're gonna get a wing about this long it's gonna be great so the wing is glued together we have the spar inside oh nice it's actually pretty like i'm actually flexing it pretty good and it's pretty strong i'm actually gonna be cutting a hole through this the body and fitting it in right here and then it'll just slide through and then we'll have a wing like that so my wing
structures are complete we attach the wing to the fuselage that's what the body of a plane is called but it's a car we're gonna call a car car solar and a horizontal and vertical stabilizer and these are some struts to keep it strong i wanna show you guys that the wings will work so we're gonna throw this off of the trampoline tower and you guys are gonna see this thing fly that's risky he could break his wings right here if it doesn't fly three two one whoa it works
i'm gonna be calling it the car plane playing car what the car plane playing car we're gonna take it to the street let's see how it works whoa it looks so cool whoa oh that like glided it dude i think once we take it off like a

drop

it'll get enough speed to where it will fly because it like totally glided the curb it may not fly now but once we go off a cliff i'm pretty sure it's gonna fly dude so now robert is gonna be building his contraption i have a sweet idea
we modded rc cars to fly extreme drop test challenge
let's wait and see so on to my build we have pipe tarp and gorilla tape i saw the blueprint to robert's design let me tell you this is definitely an unconventional uh conventional unconventional unconventional um and i'm really interested to see if it's gonna fly yeah gotta make sure all these are tight wait two four okay we're good all right guys we're just piping up the frame this big guy goes right here precisely it appears we have the frame lift up bro so they can see
it looks like a house i have some doubts about this it's much more than a house i'm just saying you know it's a little heavy for the air to hold boom roasted so now we got to put this tarp down right rope all right someone wrote some hieroglyphs onto my pipe here rub is cool how do i do that laying down the foundation now comes the tedious part of putting the tape off hey what are you what i'm just hoping because mr grandpa over here is taking his darn sweet time all right rob so
uh tell me what is your scientifical explanation for this and why you think it's gonna fly typical my scientific reason is that i'm building this for fun and i don't have a scientific i don't need a scientifical reason because i just want myself doesn't have fun is fun gonna make it fly yes pilot jeff thinks there's a lot of surface area but there's a lot of parasite drag you have this pipe which is creating more drag rob are you even considering the center of gravity
of the thing you guys might be thinking i'm helping router because i'm a nice brother i'm actually just helping him because i'm impatient and want him to finish already hi people it is done look at all this tape i'm really excited to see you attach this to the car let me guess you're just going to tape it on how the heck are you going to attach this rob hey rob i'd suggest taking off the body and not even having the body on there all right so that's what robert
did and we're going to tape it when we get to our launch site because we have to put the battery in and for us to put the battery in the car has to be off before we take it because i'm probably going to use around the whole roll of this all right what are you calling it the puppy chart the phantom menace that's what it's called all right i'm just kidding it's called floppy tarp okay fluffy tarp we're gonna build chris is gonna build his now so my plan for my car
i'm gonna build a parachute and it's gonna it's gonna safely bring my car to the ground i cut this circle tarp it was kind of difficult and then i also marked you can see right here um these are where the strings are gonna go with the tape this next step is really fun we're going to take this pole here and uh the reason why i'm doing this is because we need each string to be exactly the same length otherwise you're going to fall apart we're going to lose air and our
car's going to go crashing down to the earth wrap this around uh-huh like this i need 30 strings 30. so i need 15 on each side okay remember we need all these strings to be the exact same length if i

drop

these i feel like it's going to get super tangled there we go oh no i did this oh gosh i just tingled it off wait a minute maybe if i go like this okay so now i cut right here and then they'll all be the same length we're going to uh use some nice strong gorilla tape we're
we modded rc cars to fly extreme drop test challenge
going to try and put as much surface area on here as possible so we're going to go like this and wrap it a couple of times and now we place the string right perfect that's perfect right there so this might take a while but i'm going to put a string on every single one of these lines and then it will be almost complete okay so this is the final alignment and this is the most important part so we need to make sure that all these strings are tight and right in the middle all right so
that looks pretty good yeah it looks good all right let's

test

it see if it works that works so well so now i gotta attach it to the rc car i think my rc car has a big chance of making it down safely so we gotta poke a hole in this top of the car here all right we'll stick it through here so we're gonna tie this like so okey dokey what if it's gonna work oh this is insane it's gonna fly away totally slowing it down dude i think yours is gonna work look at that it's
completely stopping the car from moving okay so all of our builds are complete i'm going to call mine the rc jellyfish oh because it looks like a jellyfish i like their name all right guys so we have our large uh rc wing and here's the mini one we got buzz lightyear here uh hands up and everything and my little parachute is now complete so i will be trying to protect mario here there he goes hey i didn't really put that much effort into the small parachute and also i didn't
realize how heavy mario was so i i have a bad feeling for mario we're gonna go to the watertown right now and

test

these rc

cars

guys we are going to our non-disclosed location to

test

out these guys oh don't do that don't do that we're going to fly away very special occasion right now we have all our stuff ready and we're going to walk up that tower right there behind us see this big tower we're going to launch our step off of it let's do it it's huge it's a
little breezy up here that's actually good for mine it'll help me get extra lift i'm gonna have to take off into the window we're gonna take off my little flyer let's see what happens are you ready didn't even fly i think it crashed it landed on its uh a wheel popped off though my little one did not fly um hopefully this is not foreshadowing with my big one let's see if roberts will fly here we go uh let's see if robert's will fly they're so slow anybody
over here i'll try again all right here we go come on go buzz all right that one clearly sucks i didn't break though all right well all right here goes mario robert and i do not get a point because none of ours works here goes mario go mario oh what happened the parachute kind of worked but it hit the ground pretty hard it but none of the small ones flew no let's get an extra point i have a good feeling about this all right let's see what happens all right we're gonna send
it are you ready i wonder what's gonna happen that works so well holy cow and it's okay too is it right you grab it dude i get a victory point for protecting it junk is three points oh three dude love any last words to your flying carpet i hope it works all right let's go let's do it jeffree says you always need scientific logic and reasoning i say no just have fun with your build ready it died all right guys we're chucking this thing off that is a characteristic of a very
tail heavy vehicle because it just went out of control if it was i think if it was mounted higher up it would have done a lot better well i think the rc car is safe and it definitely flew oh dude this week is going lifting off into the air whoa well it worked so i got three points it landed so smoothly i don't know really yeah it's like all of ours protect it do we need to like rate which one did the best i think i think we all know who's the best because we all know that jeffy is
the best well mine landed the softness well jeffrey's flew the farthest all right well anyways you guys vote in the poll who's you think was the best yeah and then we'll let the polls settle it at least we all successfully complete this

challenge

without breaking our

cars

yeah through that through that so well that was fun it was a lot of fun well we hope you guys enjoyed this video make sure to check out our other videos click right here for the previous video click on jeffree's
