A balanced prop will reduce the wear and tear on your aircraft by greatly reducing vibration, which leads to reducing premature […]

More WW1 Details — Make a scale propeller faceplate

When it comes to making a scale model look real, or at least, realistic and a little less like a  model, it’s all in the details. My basic plan is to look at the model and all the visible RC hardware has to be either painted to cover up plastic and soldered parts, or it […]

Even thought I have flown the Balsa USA triplane most of the 2013 flying season, I always planned to add this unique feature. It’s pretty easy to do. Here’s the Old Triplane on the flightline several […]

Lakemaid Beer Tests Drone Delivery

Finally the perfect use of a multi-rotor copter: delivering beer to ice fishermen.  While we aren’t sure what drives people in Wisconsin to sit on a frozen lake, drill a hole in the ice and try to catch fish (when they could be perfectly comfortable inside on the couch), we agree that beer will help make […]
