Sam Snyder’s Spectacular Javelin

Sam Snyder’s Spectacular Javelin

One neat nugget of interest I found at the 30th Annual Southwest Jet Rally was Sam Snyder. Sam  is certainly no newcomer to scale modeling. He’s not big on kit building, preferring to draw his own plans, engineer all the structure, layout all the systems and cut out all the parts himself. That’s about as […]
Historical Perspective of the RC Jet World

Historical Perspective of the RC Jet World

 On my recent assignment to cover the 30th Annual Southwest Jet Rally for MAN, I took the opportunity to ask Mike Kulczyk, a good friend and certainly one of the pioneers in jet modeling, to give me his assessment of the evolution of R/C jets. Over the 30 plus years that I’ve known Mike, I […]
WARBIRDS OVER THE ROCKIES

WARBIRDS OVER THE ROCKIES

I was fortunate enough to attend the 9th annual Warbirds over the Rockies event, and as always, it was an amazing experience. Every day of this 3-day event there was Open flying and from 9Am till 5PM with a noon time show, the “History of Military Aviation show” that was not to be missed. Also […]
What’s Old is New Again at 30th annual Southwest Jet Rally

What’s Old is New Again at 30th annual Southwest Jet Rally

From the recent 30th annual Southwest Jet Rally article that will be published in the January 2013 issue of MAN,  I mentioned the number of own-design scratch built models at the first gathering?  Well, the spirit is still alive and well with some great projects completed or underway. This year there were a pair of 37% […]
What about those “beauty” contests?

What about those “beauty” contests?

It’s kinda neat, the varied competitions available to the R/C’er these days. There are flying events with a host of sub-sets like scale, electric, seaplanes, jets, sport, vintage, gliders and other classes. Something for everyone it would seem. There are also local shows of a different type, usually held at the shopping mall where passers-by, […]
The END of scale modeling?

The END of scale modeling?

Just had an interesting, if not enlightening, discussion with an aftermarket component supplier to the R/C marketplace. We were talking about how so many of the products today are flat out foreign copies of previously American developed and produced commodities. I expressed my belief that I thought the practice was wrong but domestic manufacturers were virtually powerless […]
Top Gun: An unbelievable photo finish

Top Gun: An unbelievable photo finish

At an event as long-standing and prestigious as Top Gun, you would expect to see a field of excellently executed model aircraft, with many of them falling into the “outstanding” category. These entries go far beyond the definition of “models,” more accurately, they are scale replicas. At this year’s Top Gun, one interesting thing to […]
Coming soon to a pond, lake, or smooth grass patch near your home

Coming soon to a pond, lake, or smooth grass patch near your home

One of the really fun aspects of R/C is seaplane flying. Whether its adapting a set of conventional floats to your land-based model or building a “dedicated” seaplane, float flying opens up a whole new world to the R/C enthusiast. Coming in the January 2012 issue of MAN is my new “PS-36” which is easy […]
