Top Flite Giant Scale P-47 Razorback 50-61cc/EP ARF

Top Flite Giant Scale P-47 Razorback 50-61cc/EP ARF

Effective as an escort fighter, interceptor, fighter bomber, and ground attack aircraft—the P-47 was one of the most versatile aircraft of the Second World War. Although the bubble canopies of later models would become very popular with the USAAC and later airshow crowds, it was the original models with the ‘razorback’ canopies that really did […]

Two Consecutive Inside Loops

Two Consecutive Inside Loops

    I often hear pilots refer to the loop as a simple maneuver. Simply pull back on the elevator stick until a complete loop has been flown, right? Wrong! Executing a perfect loop can be rather difficult. It must be round, must start and exit at the same altitude, the airplane must not drift in […]
MASTER A 3-ROLL, 270-DEGREE ROLLING CIRCLE

MASTER A 3-ROLL, 270-DEGREE ROLLING CIRCLE

        Recently, I took a look at a few known International Miniature Aerobatic Club (IMAC) programs and came across an interesting maneuver that serves as a great building block for other, more intricate, maneuvers. The 3-roll 270-degree rolling circle is maneuver four in the 2011 Advanced Class program. Many pilots claim to […]

RV-4 ARF Makeover

If you have been around this hobby for a long time you’ve seen many changes in recent years.  There are still some extreme craftsmen like Graeme Mears making master pieces in their workshops, many of us have limited time and look forward to getting out and flying.  It’s great to have that custom build, but […]
Make a Scale Static Propeller

Make a Scale Static Propeller

When it comes to scale RC planes, the biggest thing that ruins the scale look of the plane is a “smaller than scale” flying propeller. Many warbird pilots will paint their props the correct color and add the yellow safety propeller tips, but if you really want to get maximum attention at the flying field, […]
Turn your Slow Stick into an ultralight!

Turn your Slow Stick into an ultralight!

Slow Sticks are a fixture at nearly every park and flying field, but the MIA Designs Ultralight kit offers a fun way to give a different twist to this popular design. The overall look is reminiscent of the classic Quicksilver, particularly in flight, and it is a load of fun. NOTABLE FEATURES The Ultralight kit […]
Top 10 Heavy-Metal Warbirds

Top 10 Heavy-Metal Warbirds

There’s something special about RC warbirds, because they remind us of a time in history when pilots risked everything to protect their homelands. We also love them because they look great on the flightline, in the air and are a blast to fly! Here at Model Airplane News we are fortunate to be able to […]
Editor Picks: Best Biplanes

Editor Picks: Best Biplanes

Back in the dawn of aviation, two wings were necessary to form a strong, wire-reinforced structure that was still light enough for the meager power systems used to propel them. Today, the latest biplane designs are simply amazing and are used for everything from crop dusting to unlimited aerobatics. For the RC bipe guys, it […]
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, […]
