Easy Soldering Tips

Easy Soldering Tips

There is always that occasional opportunity to do some soldering. When you need to add some connectors to a battery pack, or to make a set of wiring adapters for your battery charger, using heat and molten metal to join wires together is one of the oldest do-it-yourself tasks for RC hobbyists. The task is […]
Functional Flaps — Understanding their use.

Functional Flaps — Understanding their use.

Sooner or later, many RC modelers try their hand at a scale subject, and since most full-size aircraft use flaps, their scale model should include them as well. A scale model with the flaps fully deployed is an impressive sight. This will most likely be the pilot’s first exposure to flaps since most of our sport […]
Remembering Pearl Harbor

Remembering Pearl Harbor

War was coming to the ocean called “Pacific.” Imperial Japan, in need of oil to feed its growing ambition, squirmed under the stricture of an American embargo (implemented because of Japan’s aggression toward China). Japan would not be denied its self-proclaimed destiny, so Tokyo’s warlords cast covetous eyes southward to the petroleum-rich Dutch East Indies, […]

Monster DeHavilland Comet

Would you believe that this beautiful twin is 20 years old? Steve Holland spent three years building this model and first flew it in 1999. Powered by two 74cc Zenoah gas engines, it has flown around 800 times, most recently at the BMFA Nationals show at RAF Barkston Heath in Lincolnshire, UK and filmed by […]

Nailing the Snap Roll

Nailing the Snap Roll

The snap roll is an advanced maneuver that you’ll first encounter in the IMAC Sportsman sequence. It evolves into more difficult variations in the upper classes of competition. It is one of the most difficult maneuvers in which to consistently achieve a high score because it requires a keen sense of timing, throttle management and […]
Thursday Turbine!

Thursday Turbine!

— World’s Largest Turbine Powered Jet Today, turbine jets are very popular and you can see them at most scale competitions. As jets developed from glow powered ducted-fan-power systems to true turbine power, their sizes started to increase. Really big turbine jets fall in the 1/3 scale size, but now there are even bigger jets […]

Workshop Video – Nieuport 24 Update

There’s been lots of progress this year on Gerry Yarrish’s Nieuport 24 project. Here is a video taken earlier this year showing off some of the early construction details. Stay tuned, there’s a new update video coming soon.  
Resin Casting Scale Parts

Resin Casting Scale Parts

Once you get to a certain level of scale modeling, you’ll start making parts that need to be produced in multiples and, most likely, are not commercially available. This is easily dealt with by making a master part and then reproducing it with a mold and resin casting liquid. Resin casting is considered an advanced technique, […]
Incredible Homemade Rotary Engine

Incredible Homemade Rotary Engine

Andy Johnston must take his RC modeling very seriously … why else would he spend over 3 years building a true-to-scale, rotary Bentley engine spending another 2 years building an Avro 504K from plans, specifically for the engine?  The 9-cylinder powerplant has cast-iron liners that are 1mm thick, aluminum finned barrels and a total of […]
Aileron Servo Installation Made Easy

Aileron Servo Installation Made Easy

Here’s a common, very popular way to install aileron servos. To make field maintenance more convenient, install your servos with hatches built into the wing so they are flush with the wing’s underside.. The first thing I do to get the aileron servo hatch properly aligned is to install the aileron control horn and then attach […]
