This past weekend I had the pleasure to attend a 2nd Annual Bakersfield Pattern Bash event in California.  This event had three big things to it.  The first was that it was organized and ran by none other than Chip Hyde, TOC Champion, World team member and all around good guy.   Second, this contest attracted […]
Blade 500 3D

Blade 500 3D

The new Blade 500 3D heli is a Bind-N-Fly model that is truly ready to rock right out of the box.  This is a great for someone wanting to step up from a 450-size bird without having to shell out a tone of money for a larger 600- to 700-class model. Watch our contributor Aaron […]

Double your fun: two consecutive inside loops

Double your fun: two consecutive inside loops

Executing one perfect loop can be difficult: it must be round, start and exit at the same altitude, without any drift in heading and the maneuver must be centered on the pilot.  Once you have that, now try doing two of them one right after the other! Check out the video and see what it […]

Skyartec Wasp Nano

Skyartec Wasp Nano

This great micro flybarless 3D machine is ready to fly out of the box, which  is good because the box is also the carrying case.  We got one of the first releases of this helicopter and our contributor Aaron Strietzel gives you his thoughts on this little 3D machine.  Be sure to check it out in […]

Belly landing of an Australian F-111

Belly landing of an Australian F-111

This is a cool video, but first a little history: The Australians flew the F-111 a lot longer than our Air Force. The airplane was originally designed to land on a carrier deck so the gear structure is very strong. Even landing on a long runway you just maintain 10 degrees angle of attack until […]
E-flite UMX Carbon Cub and ASK-21

E-flite UMX Carbon Cub and ASK-21

These two new E-flite UMX planes are sold separately but you will find that you need to have them both.  Our writer Michael York found that the Cub had ample power to quickly get both planes airborne and skyward.  He states, “After a very scale-like liftoff, we climbed in a large circular pattern up to […]
