Fuel Systems Made Easy

Fuel Systems Made Easy

Radio control model airplanes rely on two basic systems to fly, the radio system and the power system (excluding gliders). Whether you have a nitro-burning glow engine or a high-octane, gasoline-sipping powerplant, if your engine loses its fuel supply, you’ll find yourself in a dead-stick situation with a plane that wasn’t designed to be a […]

Fly a Reverse Cuban-8 From the Top with Half Rolls

Fly a Reverse Cuban-8 From the Top with Half Rolls

When I first started aerobatic competition, symmetrical maneuvers that combined various elements were of the most complex to perform both precisely and consistently. Let’s take the loop, for example. While it may be fairly straightforward to perform a single loop, try flying a vertical 8, which is an inside loop followed by an outside loop. […]

Crash Repair: 5 Quick & Easy Fixes

One of the apprehensions all pilots experience is knowing our planes are at risk every time they take to the air.

LiPo care and feeding — Get the most from your battery packs

When it comes to electric aircraft, one of the key components is your battery pack. It is the only power source to keep your aircraft in the air, requires constant maintenance, and if not watched it will most likely be the first thing that needs to be replaced.

How to: Weather an ARF Warbird

No doubt about it, among warbirds, the Vought F4U Corsair ranks way up near the top as a favorite with modelers. The bent-wing bird, as it’s often called, has a look like no other WW II fighter. From its big, round cowl through its aft cockpit to its unique inverted gull wing, there’s no mistaking […]

Spray Painting Made Easy — Rattle Cans to the Rescue

Here’s a great workshop technique from editor Gerry Yarrish’s workshop. The products may have changed but today, painting your model airplane with “rattle can” spray paint is a less expensive alternative than using an air compressor and an automotive touch-up gun or a HVLP (High Volume, Low Pressure) rig. When you start building models that have formed […]
