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.

Spirit of St. Louis

Spirit of St. Louis

This Ryan M-2 “Spirit of St. Louis” made history when it made the first solo, nonstop flight from New York to Paris in 1927, and this 1/4-scale model would certainly make pilot Charles Lindbergh proud. With a 141.7-inch wingspan, the 66-pound model is powered by a radial 4-stroke that’s an authentic reproduction of the original […]
Flying with Flaps — Understanding their use.

Flying with Flaps — Understanding their use.

Sooner or later, many RC modelers try their hand at a scale subject, and since most full-size aircraft use flaps, their scale model should include them as well. A scale model with the flaps fully deployed is an impressive sight. This will most likely be the pilot’s first exposure to flaps since most of our sport […]

New Ground-Pounder! — FMS Hawker Typhoon

I just had a chance to put FMS’s new Hawker Typhoon through its paces and I have to tell you, this is one heck of WW2 warbird. Distributed by Force RC, the Typhoon is a 1100mm series plug-n-play, receiver ready aircraft.

Super Scale Radial Engine — Building a round powerhouse for a P-47

Super Scale Radial Engine — Building a round powerhouse for a P-47

With electric motors now being used more frequently in scale models, we have new possibilities for enhancing the model’s appearance. Because they’re virtually vibration free and run cleanly, they allow any dummy engine and motor mount to be constructed around them and all from readily available home workshop materials. I needed such a dummy engine for my […]
