Red Tails! The Men, the Movie, the Models

THE TUSKEGEE AIRMEN: The Red Tails of WW II Hollywood has a way of rediscovering important historical events, wrapping them up and presenting them in a way that educates the general movie-going public that no amount of history classes ever could. Though few non-modeling folk know the real story, if you simply ask any RC […]

It’s SWAP meet time!

I have said this before, but I love swap meets.  It is a blast seeing all the planes people have put there heart and sole into as well as the all the stuff people no longer feel they need.  I have found some great deals and always appreciate those active hobby shops and vendors that […]

Ogar SZD-45

I wanted to post a few photos of the Ogar SZD-45 plus a video as soon as I get it adjusted to fit the website.  This is a huge powered glider that is capable of hauling a load for airborne camera work.

Cool video: flying robots build a tower

These robotic quadcopters reminded us of a swarm of bees, working together to build a giant tower out of prefabricated foam blocks. Bridget Borgobello of Gizmag explains, “Each quadrocopter is fitted with custom electronics and onboard sensors to allow for precision vehicle control, whilst also providing the opportunity for pre-programmed flight paths, which could include arcs and […]
Sneak peek: Flying Twins

Sneak peek: Flying Twins

The most important thing when piloting a twin is to fly your airplane smoothly. Make your throttle adjustments gradually and never slam the controls or the throttle stick. As long as both engines are online, flying is no different than piloting a single engine aircraft. If one engine does go silent, throttle back just slightly […]

The Futaba 18MZ – When only the best will do.

I have seen some magazine ads for the new Futaba 18MZ, but here is a link to a video that describes it even better.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBotGm0-Y0M   There are certainly no shortages of radios on the market, but there is only one radio of this caliber. When I look at the 18MZ – I mean […]
Master the Outside Loop

Master the Outside Loop

Just as in the traditional inside loop, smoothness, precision and geometry are the keys to success in performing the outside loop. To fly in a graceful manner, you’ll need to take advantage of your computer radio and fully utilize both dual rates and exponential. A traditional aerobatic model uses 12 degrees of elevator deflection, 30 […]
RotoFlow Fuel System

RotoFlow Fuel System

There have been a lot of improvement in both airplanes and helicopters throughout the years, but one area that has remained the same is the fuel tank. It seems I always have problems with leaks, poor fittings, broken fuel lines, etc. So, when I saw an ad for the RotoFlow Fuel System, I had to […]
