Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair Build-along Part 11

Top Flite Giant Scale F4U Corsair Build-along Part 11

One thing you can do to any ARF model to make it your own is to add custom Markings and details. For the Corsair, I used Red5Designs.com Vinyl markings cut from my own CAD drawings. They fit the model perfectly. These markings have a clear carrier sheet and a paper backing. Tape the marking as […]
Spitfire Masterpiece

Spitfire Masterpiece

This is one outstanding model, a scratch built 1/5th scale Supermarine Spitfire MK 1 by an English model builder. The pictures and accompanying text are by the model maker, David Glen. I wish I could make something this great. The job took well over eleven years, during which there were times he very nearly came […]

202.6mph! World’s Fastest Electric Airplane w/Video

202.6mph! World’s Fastest Electric Airplane w/Video

On July 18th, Chip Yates flew the all-electric Flight of the Century for the first time. The 16-minute flight allowed the pilot to get comfortable with the Long-EZ controls as well as the electric system. The Flight of the Century team took a Burt Rutan Long-EZ (N158TG) and converted it to an all-electric flying test bed aircraft […]

Recognized at the Warbirds over Delaware Event

No doubt about it, running a regional giant scale event like the WOD takes a lot of work. Contest directors do a lot to make their events stand out and Dave and Pete Malcione have been doing just that for many years. At this years’ event, (the 21st!) credit was given to these two tireless […]

I took the little Spy Hawk out to the flying field and here’s some of the video i shot. The video quality is great considering it is all included with the plane.  Flies great as it was a little windy during the flight! Enjoy!

How Low Can You Go Winner, Warbirds over Delaware

How Low Can You Go Winner, Warbirds over Delaware

One of the  fun parts of the WOD is the Low passes the warbird pilots make! For this year’s “How Low Can You Go” award went to WOD regular Adam Lilly with his P-40 Warhawk. Adam is known for getting his warbirds and their shadows very close together and on one 120mph + pass on Saturday, […]
Bird on your six!

Bird on your six!

The video camera onboard this RC aircraft captured some extremely unusual aerial interaction. We’re not sure whether this bird just wants to take a ride or whether he wants to take the plane OUT! Watch this clip and decide for yourself.  (Extra credit if you can tell us what type of bird is in the video!)

Mr. Top Gun’s new Bristol Beaufighter

You just never know what you will discover at the Warbirds over Delaware event and this year was no different. One of the most ambitious projects we discovered is the handiwork of three-time Top Gun Champion, David Wigley, a still-in-primer 1/5-scale Bristol Beaufighter. This amazing twin engine will be powered by a pair of 100cc gas […]

Holy cow! By far this year, the magical P-51 Mustang was the most popular WW2 heavy metal fighter at the event! Many Top Flite 86 inch span giant scale ARFs and several larger ones were on constant patrols around the Lums Pond Aerodrome! Here’s just a few!  
Warbirds over Delaware WW1 Gaggle Flight

Warbirds over Delaware WW1 Gaggle Flight

Another amazing part of the whole WOD thing, is their extremely popular WW1 Gaggle Flight where as many WW1 airplanes takeoff in mass to get as many vintage warbirds into the air at the same time. Today in the Friday Gaggle, the number of dogfighting aviators was 33. An impressive number that would have been […]
