Thanks to RCHeliJet for the amazing video he captured […]

RC Airplane Lights

RC Airplane Lights

Why not customize your aircraft so that night flying will be as simple to do as flying during the day? (That is, for those of you who find it easy to fly during the day!) I decided to give night flying a try and I have outlined here how I went about installing lights on […]

RC Scale Flak Damage — Weathering Gone Wild?

RC Scale Flak Damage — Weathering Gone Wild?

While searching for cool stuff at the recent Warbirds over the Rockies event, MAN contributor Rich Uravitch found something extraordinary. Here’s what his report revealed. Since the theme of the event was Warbirds, the models entered were scale replicas, some of them in the “sport” scale, fly-it-every-day category, while others were clearly competition-capable. They had […]
Wing-to-Fuselage Fillets

Wing-to-Fuselage Fillets

Advice from expert scale designer and builder Nick Ziroli: Instead of adding the fillet after the wing and fuselage are built, I make the shape of the fillet areas as part of the fuselage formers themselves. This requires having at least the wing center section built and attached to the fuselage, but to make sure […]

New for Premium Members — Making Landings Easy

Many pilots think that stick time and getting better at making corrections are the main requirements for better landings and, therefore, give little thought to how they land or whether they’re flying correctly. As a consequence of flying without a plan and reacting to the airplane, most pilots end up making four to five times […]
Getting Started with E-Power

Getting Started with E-Power

Today, our hobby is enjoying a literal “Golden Age” of RC electric flight. The amount of quality motors, batteries, controllers and connectors is just about limitless as are the types and sizes of airplanes you can fly with E-power. Even though there are plenty of plug n play packages out there where you get everything […]
