Building Tip of the Week: Installing Self Tapping Screws

Posted by aerobeez On October - 8 - 2014

Hello Aerobeez Pilots! Welcome back for Octobers first installment of Pete’s Tip of the Week. As always, these tips are intended to help with all types of model building, even if you don’t own an Aerobeez plane or have yet to take the first step into becoming an RC pilot. We want to help you improve your model building, set-up, and eventually flying skills.

So without further ado, today’s tip will focus on: Installing Self Tapping Screws.


When installing any screws that are “self tapping” wood screws, it is always best to mark and drill pilot holes.  This will prevent the wood from splitting.  The majority of the builds including servo areas will use a 1/16 size drill bit for the pilot holes.  A pilot hole is basically providing a starting 1/16 hole for the self tapping wood screws.


Thank you all for reading Pete’s Tip of the Week and check back for more each week!
