Soldering Wire Landing Gear — The easy way!

While building sport airplanes from kits, often the airplane will have landing gear made from formed and bent music wire that you will have to solder together. For Fun Fly airplanes like the Florio Flyer 60, the music wire are a little extra long to provide plenty of ground clearance for the propeller, very important […]

Rivet Detail Made Easy (well, easier!)

Don’t you just hate it when an article starts off with a question? Me too! But sometimes it does serve the purpose of grabbing the reader’s attention. With that in mind, how often have you been to a scale modeling event and wondered, “How the heck did he do that?” Whether it’s a technique in […]

A Pilot’s View of D-Day

A Pilot’s View of D-Day

No single military battle so changed the course of a war as did the Normandy invasion on D-Day. So many were lost this day and the price of freedom was paid for with their blood. We should never forget their sacrifice. Check out this story from our sister publication Flight Journal, “A Pilot’s View of […]
Pop Your Top with this great move

Pop Your Top with this great move

We are very fortunate to have Jason Benson explain this rather cool move, the  Pop Top. This maneuver just requires some stick timing and the willingness of the pilot to repeat it until it becomes second nature. Jason offers up some tips that make learning this move a little easier.  This is a great turnaround […]
Monster Messerschmitt

Monster Messerschmitt

Belgian giant-scale modeler Hervé Ferauche certainly believes that “bigger is better”: his Messerschmitt Me 109 “Rote Sieben” is a half-scale beauty with a 205 inch wingspan! A 520cc Hirth Boxer engine and 39×18 prop power this 264-pound fighter, sporting a color scheme from the European front. We think Willy would be proud!  
SAFETY FIRST!

SAFETY FIRST!

It’s a perfect day for flying, and it’s time to pack up the car and head for the flying field.  Some flyers haphazardly throw their gear in the car and some have check lists.  Whether you’re organized or not so organized, when you drive away you sometimes have that nagging feeling that you’ve forgotten something.

Memorial Day is a U.S. federal holiday observed on May 26 in 2014. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates all American men and women who died while in military service of our country.

Great Planes Citabria [video]

The Great Planes Citabria is a 30cc aerobat that we found to be a pure joy to fly — especially when flown like its full-scale counterpart. Its classic lines, scale details and sunburst trim will surely get a lot of positive attention at the field. It easily performs all the maneuvers that the full-size was […]
