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, [...]
One of the coolest looking Warbirds of WWII had to be the F4U Corsair. With that big prop and gull wings it was a totally different looking plane from all others. Top Flite has released its new smaller sized F4U Corsair ARF and Arron Strietzel let you know what he thought about this great looking [...]
This is the second maneuver of the 2012 IMAC Advanced routine. It requires the pilot to enter from an inverted flight and push to establish a 45-degree climb then perform 1 ½ negative snaps. After the snap, maintain straight, upright line segment, then pull to exit and establish a level inverted flight. Hear what Jason [...]
There are two ways to reverse the rotation of our electric motors; you can just switch any two of the three wires leading to the motor, or you can reverse it on the ESC programing. But is one way better than the other? We asked Lee Estingoy from Castle Creations this very question.
Battery manufacturers have made great improvements in the battery C-rating over the years and we modelers have embraced this advancement in technology. But, is it possible to have too high of a C-rating and can we take advantage of it? We asked Lee Estingoy from Castle Creations about this and here is what he had [...]
How hot is too hot, we all know that heat is damaging to our batteries, ESCs and motors. But what causes it and how can we keep it under control. Lee Estingoy from Castle Creations tell us what cause excess heat and at what throttle setting you can expect to see more heat generated in [...]
Many racers like to use the timing program on ESCs to extract that extra bit of power from their motors. Does this really work? We asked Lee Estingoy from Castle Creations if it is possible to extract more from your motors by adjusting the timing. Here is what he had to say.
