F-4 Phantom II Build-it-yourself Jet!

F-4 Phantom II Build-it-yourself Jet!

One of our most popular plans in the MAN library is the F-4 Phantom II designed by Dan Savage and finished in the classic “Blue Angles” Airshow Team scheme.  This electric ducted fan looks like a scale jet but flies like a sport model. It uses traditional balsa, plywood and lite-ply construction and is intended for […]

Workshop Build-Along — Alien Aircraft ArrowMaster 4 — Top Wing

In part 3, we finished the bottom wing by adding the ailerons and joining the two wing halves together. Now we continue with the Top wing! Construction is very similar to the bottom wing. Differences being, it’s built as a single piece with no dihedral and no ailerons. It has a lot to sweep back to it plus, it has […]

Perfecting the 3-turn Negative Spin

Perfecting the 3-turn Negative Spin

In the early days of aviation, spins were often fatal because most pilots did not understand how to properly recover from a spin. While in an upright spin, the pilot would pull back on the elevator stick in an effort to save the airplane (and their life!) and only make the situation worse. Since the […]

Here’s another treat from our British friends Pete and Dean Coxford: an enormous de Havilland DH-98 Mosquito!

Easy Retract Installation

Easy Retract Installation

One of my favorite planes is the Top Flite Cessna 310. One thing that was missing from this nice scale plane was the great looking retracts that are available from Robart Manufacturing. I decided to install them and I was surprised just how simple it was. I began my endeavor by purchasing all the necessary equipment, […]

Don’t trash that crash!

Don’t trash that crash!

We’ve all done it. That one dumb thumb move, the very brief moment when our brain wanted to go right and our thumb decided to go left. There’s nothing you can do but pick up the pieces and take them back to the shop. Some professional aircraft impact testers even have a trash bag in […]

Powered by four (4!) 160 Wren turbines, this massive 20-foot span Avro Vulcan wowed the crowds at the recent RAF Cosford Air Show put on by Britain’s Large Model Association.
