A gyro that has come loose will make the model uncontrollable, invariably resulting in a crash. […]

Indoor hover fest!

Indoor hover fest!

A pilot from DW Foamies takes center stage while hovering his flat-foam aerobat. The indoor area hosted flying from beginning to end of the show and was about the size of a basketball court — big enough that interpid micro jet pilots even flew the circuit!

In this video taken at a New Zealand RC event, an A-10 turbine-powered jet catches fire while in flight! Excellent pilot skills and quick thinking get the plane down safely, and the ground crew’s quick work with fire extinguishers saves the model from further damage (thanks to Xjet for the YouTube video).

Editors’ Choice: Innovation of the Year

Our innovation of the year is a stabilization system that makes planes easier to fly, by allowing us to concentrate on piloting instead of making corrections for wind and tracking. This system is especially suited to smaller indoor planes that are notoriously difficult to fly. For making RC planes easier and more fun to fly, […]
