7-Engine Russian Bomber

7-Engine Russian Bomber

If you like flying really big, unique aircraft, then this 16-foot-span Kalinin K-7 might be just what you’re looking for! With a wingspan close to that of a B-52, only one full-size K-7 was ever built, and it crashed after seven flights due to a tail boom structural failure, so it’s doubtful you’ll run into another RC version […]

Workshop Build-Along — Alien Aircraft ArrowMaster 4 — Top Wing

In part 3, we finished the bottom wing by adding the ailerons and joining the two wing halves together. Now we continue with the Top wing! Construction is very similar to the bottom wing. Differences being, it’s built as a single piece with no dihedral and no ailerons. It has a lot to sweep back to it plus, it has […]
Perfecting the 3-turn Negative Spin

Perfecting the 3-turn Negative Spin

In the early days of aviation, spins were often fatal because most pilots did not understand how to properly recover from a spin. While in an upright spin, the pilot would pull back on the elevator stick in an effort to save the airplane (and their life!) and only make the situation worse. Since the […]
