Thunder Tiger Flybarless Rotor Head Conversion Kit

Thunder Tiger has recently released their new flybarless rotor head conversion kit for the Titan X 50 and Raptor 30/50 helicopters, both of which are available from TowerHobbies. However, be careful when ordering because each has their own stock number. Use LXBMDZ for the Titan X 50 and LXBMEA for the raptor 30/50. Each head […]
F 27 Stryker Full Build

F 27 Stryker Full Build

                                                                                    Part One: For years I’ve watched  guy’s fly their Park Zone F 27 Strykers.  This plane has  excellent acceleration combined with  gentle landing characteristics. Flys very smooth when you want it to, or gets crazy when you want it to. A really fun plane to fly.         I just had to have one.       My friend Brian had the first offering […]

Hangar 9 E-conversions: P-47, F4U Corsair & F6F Hellcat

Hangar 9 E-conversions: P-47, F4U Corsair & F6F Hellcat

I have had the good fortune to assemble many  Hangar 9 models and have found that they have enough scale details to satisfy any pilot without compromising the performance of the airframe. They are also some of the easiest planes to do e-conversions on because the airframe is light for its size and allows for a great […]

Exclusive review! E-flite Carbon-Z Scimitar

  Several years ago, I was fortunate enough to see Quique Somenzini compete at the Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas and watched in total amazement as he put his model through outrageous maneuvers. Now the champion pilot has begun designing aircraft, and his latest is the Carbon-Z Scimitar. It’s a red-hot fantasy-scale, twin-rudder, delta […]

V-22 Osprey Build Update #3

V-22 Osprey Build Update #3

This evening’s task is assembly the frames for each nacelle.  If you’ve built a couple of non-ARF helicopters in the past there won’t be any real surprises here, but definitely follow the instructions as the Osprey doesn’t function like a normal heli. A note of clarification:  One tends to look at the nacelles in their […]

On this day in Aviation History – November 23

2009:     First Pakistan made JF-17 Thunder handed over to thr Pakistan Air Force. The JF-17 Thunder is a state-of-the-art multi role aircraft produced at the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex in Kamra.   1996:     Ethiopian Airlines Flight 961, a 767-300 registered ET-AIZ, crashed after running out of fuel in the Comoro Islands in Africa after a […]
V-22 Osprey Build Update #2

V-22 Osprey Build Update #2

Time to start building!  Assembly of the Osprey begins with the mechanics.  Although the body is a true ARF, the mechanics have to be assembled from individual pieces.  I consider this a plus for a couple of reasons:  First and foremost, on every “pre-assembled” heli I’ve ever purchased I felt it necessary to check every […]
Fly the Immelmann Turn

Fly the Immelmann Turn

Pilots often use Immelmann turns to change direction quickly. The Immelmann dates back to WW I and was was named for German pilot Max Immelmann. Although some say that his actual combat maneuver was different from today’s aerobatic version, the name has stuck. The combat Immelmann was performed to reengage a target; the aerobatic Immelmann […]
Sneak peek: Seagull Models Pilatus PC-9

Sneak peek: Seagull Models Pilatus PC-9

  There is just something about the Pilatus PC-9 that strikes a chord in me, and the Seagull Models 1.20-size version of this fantastic plane is no exception. Designed to be powered by a 1.20 2-stroke, a 1.80 4-stroke or equivalent electric motor, this ARF will definitely perform as a pre-jet trainer should. With a […]

Optimize your Model’s Fuel System — Improving engine performance and reliability

Good engine performance and reliable starts depend on a properly installed and maintained fuel system. When you think about it, RC model airplanes rely on two basic systems to fly, the radio system and the power system. Whether you have a nitro burning glow engine or a high octane gasoline sipping power plane, if your engine […]
