Aileron Differential: Why it’s so important and how to set it up

Aileron Differential: Why it’s so important and how to set it up

For years, depending on the model setup, modelers often used offset servo output arms and bellcranks to achieve differential aileron movement. Today, however, using separate aileron servos and the aileron differential program menu in your computer radio has greatly simplified the task.

Showoff Move: Negative Snap from an Inverted Climb

Showoff Move: Negative Snap from an Inverted Climb

This is a good maneuver to help teach you how to perform cleanly while being aware of any corrections being needed for maximum points. As with most maneuvers, with lots of practice, you learn to correct subconsciously which is the goal for anyone wanting to be a serious aerobatic and or 3D pilot.     […]

Wing Repair Made Easy

Wing Repair Made Easy

We all make dumb moves when flying. Practice is the best cure for this problem, as the ones who make the least dumb moves are usually the ones who fly the most.  Since I have moved about an hour’s drive from the flying field, I no longer go flying several times a week. And this […]

E-flite P-47D Razorback 1.2m BNF / PNP

E-flite P-47D Razorback 1.2m BNF / PNP

From E-flite: When the P-47 Thunderbolt first arrived in the European theater of World War II, its rotund fuselage quickly earned it the nickname “The Jug”. It wasn’t long, though, before this became short for “Juggernaut”. Built like a 400-mph flying tank, it packed the wallop of eight .50 caliber machine guns and carried enough […]

Pro tips to a perfect 4-point roll!

The four-point roll (hesitation roll) is a horizontal roll with a brief hesitation at 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Before you attempt this maneuver, I recommend that you perfect the standard aileron roll by using down-elevator when the plane is inverted. You should be able to do a roll without any altitude loss or heading […]
Workshop Tech Tip — Micro Adjustable Servo Arms

Workshop Tech Tip — Micro Adjustable Servo Arms

When you get into 3D aerobatic flyers, especially the lightweight, indoor profile designs, you quickly discover that standard micro servo arms just don’t provide enough control throw for the extreme maneuvers the airplanes do so well. Many modelers make their own from plastic and glue and/or screw the extended arms to their stock servo arms. A […]
