Red Flag Jet Event — coming this November!

Frank Tiano, the event promoter who brought us Top Gun and Florida Jets, has a new game in town! Frank says, “Red Flag is, and will be, a lot of things but it may be easiest to explain some things it is ‘Not,’ or ‘Will Not’ be! For example, it is not for the timid, […]

The FAA have released their proposed rules for commercial small unmanned aerial systems, including that these aircraft weigh less than 55 pounds, only be operated in daylight and always via line of sight. The FAA will also require operators to be certified with a small UAS rating and pass an aeronautical test every 2 years. These proposed […]

Half-Scale RC Sopwith Camel — Video of the Day

Some guys like the big stuff and for many, half scale is the new 33%! More and more 50% scale aircraft are showing up at RC events and so when we saw this video of William “Billy” Thompson flying his half-scale Camel at the Hoosier Dawn Patrol event we took notice. Featuring traditional wood construction, […]

Two Consecutive Inside Loops

Two Consecutive Inside Loops

    I often hear pilots refer to the loop as a simple maneuver. Simply pull back on the elevator stick until a complete loop has been flown, right? Wrong! Executing a perfect loop can be rather difficult. It must be round, must start and exit at the same altitude, the airplane must not drift in […]
Thunderous Tempest

Thunderous Tempest

You won’t believe how low the pilot of this 1/4-scale Hawker Tempest will fly! Henning Schlömer scratch-built this 125-inch-span, 51.8-pound beauty and powers it with a King 140cc two-cylinder in-line engine. Thanks to Rcscaleairplanes for taking this great video at the Warbird Meet MFC-Oberhausen 2014.

HobbyKing Avios Hawker Sea Fury Warbird EPO 1200mm (PNF)

We are swooning over this scale WW II fighter! Here are all the deets from Hobby King: The Hawker Sea Fury was the last propeller-driven fighter to serve with the Royal Navy, and also one of the fastest production single piston-engined aircraft ever built. Developed during the Second World War, the Sea Fury entered service […]

Three new robust (read: crash resistant!) multirotors from LRP have you covered no matter what size quad you’re looking for! Check out this release: Flying quadrocopters is action and fun in another dimension. This is also true for the 2015 editions of the LRP quadrocopters.

Workshop Build-Along — Triplane Weathering

Workshop Build-Along — Triplane Weathering

So you’ve finished painting your new scale airplane and it looks nice and shiny and brand new. You check your model one more time against your photo documents of the full-size plane and there’s something just not quite right… What is it? Well, it would be a safe guess that your full size subject airplane, […]
Fabric Covering Tips – Sopwith Camel Workshop Build-along — Part 20

Fabric Covering Tips – Sopwith Camel Workshop Build-along — Part 20

Now that the Sopwith Camel’s fuselage and the rest of the project has been all buttoned up, and the engine cowling’s magnetic attachment arrangement taken care off, we can how move on to the covering process of the project. For this model, I am using Scale Stits and Polytone paint and adhesive. The fabric is specially produced […]
AH-56 Cheyenne Project – Part 5 – Tail Controls

AH-56 Cheyenne Project – Part 5 – Tail Controls

This installment continues construction of my 700-size AH-56 Cheyenne.  The project begins here. Since the Cheyenne’s tail rotor is mounted at the end of a long extension shaft, I needed to fabricate a control linkage with a bellcrank,.  I’ve just gotten into having parts 3D printed by Shapeways.com, and this was a perfect application for their […]
