An RC Jumbo Jet’s First Flight

An RC Jumbo Jet’s First Flight

An RC plane’s first flight is usually a nerve-racking experience, but what if you’re flying a 16-foot-span, four-turbine-powered scale airliner? Earlier this month in Oppingen, Germany, Adi Pitz’s 747-400 scale model took off with pilot Rainer Kamitz at the controls. The largest plane Adi has ever built, it has over 2,000 hours of work into it, […]
5 Easy Steps to the Knife-Edge Spin

5 Easy Steps to the Knife-Edge Spin

In my opinion, the knife-edge spin is one of the most impressive extreme aerobatic maneuvers. It’s very demanding for the pilot and the airframe. In traditional knife-edge, the aircraft is rolled approximately 90 degrees from upright level flight. Then altitude is sustained by using top rudder. When the maneuver is complete, the pilot will roll […]

Highlights of the new JR 28X Radio System

Featured in the September 2015 issue of MAN, the new JR 28X  from JR Americas is an amazing radio system. I have been a JR radio enthusiast for many years and have always found the brand to be rock solid in the performance department. One of my first serious, “go to” radios was the touch […]

Workshop Build-Along — Sopwith Camel — Part 29: Balancing the CG

Workshop Build-Along — Sopwith Camel — Part 29: Balancing the CG

Well, this is the very last workshop segment from this Sopwith Camel Build-Along. After getting the model balanced, it will all be about how it flies, and that means a trip to the Club’s flying field. To balance the model, I used scuba weight and lead shot installed in the engine compartment. I built a plywood […]

Workshop Build-Along — Sopwith Camel — Part 27: Interplane Struts

The last bits of building in any project seem to take the longest, at least when you have a deadline to meet! We are planning to have the compete construction article for this sport scale WW1 classic in the upcoming December issue of MAN in our Scale Special Issue. To make the interplane struts you […]
Top Gun Scale Invitational Video Highlights

Top Gun Scale Invitational Video Highlights

The MAN Team had an amazing time at Top Gun this year, but it wasn’t all fun and games, besides covering the event and making sure we got the airplane’s and pilot’s names correct, we also did some video work. So here, all in one place, are the highlights from this year’s event right from […]
Computer Aided Design and Developing RC Airplane Plans

Computer Aided Design and Developing RC Airplane Plans

One of the best tools I ever discovered while being involved in RC scale modeling, is Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs. It opened an entirely new segment of modeling to me, while also greatly increasing the precision in which I designed and developed scratch build scale airplanes. This post is an online version of my PowerPoint presentation […]
Flight Technique: Freestyle Roller Coaster

Flight Technique: Freestyle Roller Coaster

To do the Roller Coaster, start by flying downwind, straight and level at about 1/3 of your model’s top speed. Pull up the elevator to full deflection. The model will execute a big pitch change: its nose will go up past vertical to about 130 degrees, and at the same time, the model will slide backward so its tail is in […]
