Big Scale Made Easy!

Big Scale Made Easy!

Large-scale helis (“large” in this context meaning anything bigger than 450 or 500 size) have a reputation for being expensive, complicated, and nerve-wracking to fly. The goal of this project was to have a scale heli that would be affordable, simple and fun. To fulfill these objectives, I looked for a scale body that would […]
Improve Your Hovering

Improve Your Hovering

Having the helicopter properly maintained and setup is a vital part to any phase of helicopter flight, and I assume this has already been accomplished.  What remains are some of the advanced techniques to use when hovering. But before we get into actual hands-on hovering techniques, I think it’s important to discuss the basic principals, […]

Hot move: negative snap from inverted climb

Hot move: negative snap from inverted climb

For this maneuver, the pilot enters from inverted flight and pushes to establish a 45-degree climb then he performs 1½ negative snaps. After the snap, another line segment (equal to the first line) is then executed. Once the maneuver is complete, the pilot must pull 135-degrees to exit in inverted straight and level flight. This […]

3D Flight Checks

3D Flight Checks

A series of flight checks are required to program your radio for 3D flying. These flights should not be viewed as practice flights, but a time to evaluate your plane’s tendencies and fine-tune your radio setup. It’s therefore important to conduct your initial flight checks in calm conditions to make it easier to detect your […]

The ProTek R/C True Glow

With the ProTek R/C ”TruGlow” Remote Glow Igniter System you can leave your old glow plug battery in the field box because the “TruGlow” uses your receiver battery to power the glow plug in your airplane or helicopter. This not only makes it easier to start your engine, but can also be setup to help […]
The ProTek RC Transmitter Case

The ProTek RC Transmitter Case

Enter the ProTek R/C Universal Radio Case where the minds behind ProTek R/C have developed an all in one solution that will allow you to use a single radio case […]
O.S. GT15HZ: New Gas Engine

O.S. GT15HZ: New Gas Engine

Many years ago we tried using Zenoah gas engines in our helicopters, but there were several problems we could not overcome. First, they were not designed to be used in helicopters. Rather, they were designed for some type of commercial operation, such as powering a small blower. This meant they were unbalanced, so they had […]
The TACTIC TTX650 Radio

The TACTIC TTX650 Radio

You may be familiar with the TACTIC  “Any Link” module that allowed you to turn your transmitter into a 2.4 GHz radio to operate any Tx-R model. Now they have come out with their TTX650 full function 6-channel transmitter that is also compatible with all SLT receivers and Tx-R aircraft. This economical transmitter is powered […]
