RC Airplane Night Lights

RC Airplane Night 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 […]
1/4-Scale AT-6 Texan

1/4-Scale AT-6 Texan

Bet you’ve never seen an AT-6 like this before! That’s because this incredible 126-inch-span aircraft is a prototype for a new CARF-Models offering. Flown by Andreas Gietz, this T-6 is powered by a Moki 250cc 5-cylinder radial engine that sounds magnificent and provides more than enough power (check out those really high-speed passes!). Split flaps, […]

EZ  DIY Workshop Table

EZ DIY Workshop Table

As a long-time-fan of the PBS show “New Yankee Workshop” I’ve seen quite a few good woodworking projects, but none more handy than the large roll around shop table. I knew I’d have to build it one day when I had the room for it in a workshop I hadn’t even yet built. Sorry to […]

MAN contributor Rich Uravitch has a review and flight report on the new F-4 Phantom from E-flite and it looks like this 80mm EDF is a real keeper!

RC Landing Gear Repair

RC Landing Gear Repair

Damaged landing gear caused by landing off-field is probably the single most common repair needed during an RC model’s lifespan. While flying a 30cc Ultimate biplane from Aeroworks, an engine out on the downwind gave us a bad case of landing gear down.    Test Pilot and MAN contributor Aaron Ham was doing an inverted pass […]

DIY Fiberglass Engine Cowlings

When you find that you can not purchase a molded part for your scale project, it really isn’t all that difficult to make that part yourself. Here is a great way to make homemade fiberglass engine cowlings with readily available supplies. To make the engine cowling for my 1/4-scale Sopwith Camel, I used 1-inch-thick blue […]
Pro Tips for Spray Painting

Pro Tips for Spray Painting

Here’s a great workshop technique from editor Gerry Yarrish’s workshop. Over the years, the products may have changed but today, painting your model airplane with “rattle can” spray paint is a less expensive alternative than using an air compressor and an automotive touch-up gun. When you start building models that have formed plastic or fiberglass parts such […]
