RC Model Airplane Workshop — Tips for Better Building

For several years now I have been highlighting my projects and workshop builds online to share some of my building tips and Techniques I use.

RC Plane Shock-Absorbing Landing Gear

I have always admired early aircraft, especially those flown during WW I. The evolution of aircraft from 1914 to 1918 is simply amazing. I have built and flown several WW I airplanes built from Balsa USA kits. Well designed, they fly great but sometimes my landings can be less than perfect. I wanted to design […]

RC Airplane Soldering Tips

There is always that occasional opportunity to do some soldering. When you need to add some connectors to a battery pack, or to make a set of wiring adapters for your battery charger, using heat and molten metal to join wires together is one of the oldest do-it-yourself tasks for RC hobbyists. The task is […]

RC Plane Workshop Tip: Easy fix for a busted wing

RC Plane Workshop Tip: Easy fix for a busted wing

Let’s face it. If you fly RC airplanes, sooner or later you are going to damage your model. With so many ARF planes available on the market today, few modelers are building up their models from kits. This has produced a whole generation of excellent flyers who simply don’t have much in the form of […]

RC Model Giant Grumman Intruder

You don’t often do you see a scale A-6 at the flying field, let alone one this detailed! Scratch-built by Laurent Chaperon, this 1/5.4-scale RC Intruder has a 12-foot wingspan and is powered by a JetCat P200 turbine. Laurent scaled up a 1/72-scale Italeri plastic model to create plans for his jet, which features built-up construction and […]
Giant-Scale Tips: HOW TO BALANCE A LARGE SPINNER

Giant-Scale Tips: HOW TO BALANCE A LARGE SPINNER

Always balance your spinner. An unbalanced spinner can create small to large vibrations which can lead to serious problems with your model. For this piece, I am balancing the CARF P-51D composite spinner and aluminum backplate that came from CARF as an optional purchase. I have used this method of balancing spinners, to success, for […]
RC Aerobatics: Pro tips to a perfect 4-point roll!

RC Aerobatics: 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 […]
