Today, we have a lot of great RC pilots who’ve earned their wings with quick building ARF designs. This is great for the flying field, but what’s happening is we’re moving a bit away from the part of the hobby that I really love and that’s the building board in the workshop. To help introduce […]

1995 The space shuttle Discovery (STS-63) blasted off with a woman, Air Force Lt. Col. Eileen Collins, in the pilot’s seat for the first time in NASA history. Discovery rendezvoused with the Mir Space Station and Collins would later visit Mir on STS-84 as well. On July 26, 2005, Collins commanded STS-114, the emotional “Return […]
The latest in E-flite’s Platinum Series, this built-up WW I fighter will definitely be a knockout on any flightline. Intended for an electric 25 to 52 motor, the Albatros comes with shock absorbing landing gear with scale wheels, top and bottom plug-in wings with carbon fiber wing tube, molded dummy engine and machine gun, wire rigging and […]
Here is the video of the fifth day of assemble on the Hangar 9 P-47 Thunder Bolt. I finished up with the gas tank and then I moved on to the cowl installation and this took the most time of anything because I can’t take the cut back, so I proceeded slowly. I got the retracts all […]
With a two-piece wing with removeable, premounted struts, the 112-inch-span Bravata is easy to take to the field.

I also installed the tank and routed the fuel lines to the fill valve and vent valve on the bottom of the fuselage . There are some images below the video. More […]
Today, giant scale has developed into a whole new sector of the RC modeling community and truly gigantic planes are being developed to fill this growing special interest group. Recently, a ½-scale Pfalz D.III WW 1 German fighter successfully flew its first test flight and impressed everyone who was there. The plane is a custom […]
Here is the video of the third day of assemble on the Hangar 9 P-47 Thunder Bolt. I finished installing all of the control surfaces and moving on to the engine. So far the construction is moving along well and the part fit had been outstanding. The manual is very complete and explains everything well. Anyone, with […]
We recently received this video from Ali Shanmao of a new kind of RC heli he’s helping evaluate. Here’s one of the test flights of this new concept in RC helicopter design. This week’s episode also features robotic quadcopters, watch the show below.
