    Hello everybody.

    I am hoping to eventually build a CNC router for my hobby which is radio controlled model aircraft.

    I say eventually because having children robs me of all my time and money.

    My design changes all the time as I stumble across new ideas so I do not know what the router will look like by the time I start building it, but I do know it will be budget conscious, DIY oriented with minimum premade components and have a cutting area of around 150 x 30 cm (5'x1').

    Kind regards,

  2. Hi Kenneth and welcome to the site. Thats a very unusual shape for a CNC machine. We have a few members into RC aircraft, I seem to recall a ducted fan VC10 being one...

    Thanks for your welcome.

    The cutting length is set by my wish to cut 150cm wing plugs or moulds and the width is set by the surface I have to rest the machine on which is 60cm.

    Given that the machine footprint is usually larger than the net cutting area, I am expecting a footprint of 180cm x 60cm which coincides with the surface I have to sit it on.

    I will post the build when I get round to it.

    Kind regards,
