ARF Jet Makeover — Added details for the fast lane

ARF Jet Makeover — Added details for the fast lane

I’ve been waiting for a F86 Sabre EDF to come along that didn’t have a HUGE “out of scale”nose intake and didn’t cost an arm and a leg. Finally E-flite did it.

Micro Warbird Makeover

Micro Warbird Makeover

Over the past several years, the arrival of ARFs has provided a means for many to quickly get into RC flying.

Scaling out a foam WW I fighter

Scaling out a foam WW I fighter

I’ve had the ParkZone Albatros for a few months and have had a blast flying it. It is a foam, ready-to-fly WW I flyer that’s of great value. My club has a grass field that is rather bumpy, so great care is needed to bring small-scale planes down for safe landings. It was this objective […]

Corsairs have a distinguishable uniqueness all their own; it’s the “bent” or inverted gull wing that was designed for prop clearance and housing the short and stout landing gear. Regarding the subject, scale rotating retractable mains are available from E-flite (part EFLG120) and easily bolt into the wing and plug into the gear channel of […]

Pilot Projects: T-28 Trojan [September 2012]

T-28 Trojan: Jeff writes, “Sometimes the fun in our hobby is seeing how we can transition a simple ARF into something more interesting.”  He stripped his ParkZone T-28 completely down, filled all the dents and scratches and added Testor’s spray paint and new decals.  Then it was time to make struts for some HobbyZone floats.
