Sneak Peek: ElectriFly Mr. Mulligan

Sneak Peek: ElectriFly Mr. Mulligan

  The ElectriFly version is a gorgeous ARF that is all built-up construction and beautifully covered in MonoKote. All control surfaces are prehinged for you and glued in place. Construction consists of gluing the tail surfaces in place, bolting on the landing gear and installing your motor and radio gear. A couple of spare nights […]
J 3 Cub-Fun with covering

J 3 Cub-Fun with covering

                                                                                                              The J 3 Cub is a great flying aircraft. I always enjoy watching the guys at the field fly their Cubs. Eventually got A Cub of my own. This model of the J 3 Cub was built from an old Sig Kit I purchased on e-bay a many years back.  J 3 Cub’s are traditionally finished with “Cub Yellow”covering. You may see the Military finish as well. Olive Green with […]

Check out this GIANT building project!

Airplane building is airplane building regardless of size. There’s a saying that the difference between men’s and children’s toys is just the price tag. Certainly this is true when it comes to RC and full-size airplanes. But the passion and dedication is the same when you compare scale RC builders and EAA Experimental Aircraft Builders! […]

Thunder Tiger Flybarless Head

Thunder Tiger has recently released their new flybarless rotor head conversion kit for the Titan X 50 and Raptor 30/50 helicopters, both of which are available from TowerHobbies.

P-51 Mustang Reno Racer

P-51 Mustang Reno Racer

I just finished reading an article in the  recent publication of Model Airplane News. The article related to the up coming film by George Lucas: The Red Tails. The article was authored by John Reid and I found it to be very informative and illuminating. There is a lot of misinformation regarding the Tuskegee Airmen and I […]

F 27 Stryker Full Build

F 27 Stryker Full Build

                                                                                    Part One: For years I’ve watched  guy’s fly their Park Zone F 27 Strykers.  This plane has  excellent acceleration combined with  gentle landing characteristics. Flys very smooth when you want it to, or gets crazy when you want it to. A really fun plane to fly.         I just had to have one.       My friend Brian had the first offering […]
Hangar 9 E-conversions: P-47, F4U Corsair & F6F Hellcat

Hangar 9 E-conversions: P-47, F4U Corsair & F6F Hellcat

I have had the good fortune to assemble many  Hangar 9 models and have found that they have enough scale details to satisfy any pilot without compromising the performance of the airframe. They are also some of the easiest planes to do e-conversions on because the airframe is light for its size and allows for a great […]

Exclusive review! E-flite Carbon-Z Scimitar

  Several years ago, I was fortunate enough to see Quique Somenzini compete at the Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas and watched in total amazement as he put his model through outrageous maneuvers. Now the champion pilot has begun designing aircraft, and his latest is the Carbon-Z Scimitar. It’s a red-hot fantasy-scale, twin-rudder, delta […]
V-22 Osprey Build Update #3

V-22 Osprey Build Update #3

This evening’s task is assembly the frames for each nacelle.  If you’ve built a couple of non-ARF helicopters in the past there won’t be any real surprises here, but definitely follow the instructions as the Osprey doesn’t function like a normal heli. A note of clarification:  One tends to look at the nacelles in their […]
