One of a Kind Soviet Bomber

One of a Kind Soviet Bomber

Built and flown by Rainer Mattle, this monster 99-pound model is powered by six 15cc ASP gas engines and an electric pusher motor. Built up from wood, the 16-foot-span plane is also equipped with 16 servos, brakes, and steerable nose wheels and can be disassembled into six modules for easier transport. Kalinin K-7 might be […]
13 Foot Span RC Spruce Goose

13 Foot Span RC Spruce Goose

Built and flown by Jürgen Schönle, this eight-motor model has over a 13-foot wingspan yet weighs just under 11 pounds, thanks to its foam and carbon-fiber construction. The 1/22-scale aircraft is powered by a single 3S, 4000mAh LiPo! Jurgen spent only a month building this model. Howard Hughes would be proud! Thanks to RC Media […]

Incredibly Realistic Fw 190

Incredibly Realistic Fw 190

We’ll admit it: from the minute this video started we were hooked. The animated pilot figure and sliding canopy are the perfect touch to this 1/5- scale FW 190 D-9 model. The 82.67-inch-span aircraft is powered by a Zenoah G-62 and weighs in at close to 31 pounds. Austrian pilot Klaus Herold does a great job of […]

Monster-Scale Hanriot HD.1 — Flight and Detail Video

One thing is for sure, WW1 biplanes make amazing giant scale projects, and when we talk about really big giant scale RC airplanes, half-scale (and larger), things really start to get exciting. First featured in Model Airplane News a few years ago, Ian Turney-White’s impressive WW I biplane is truly an amazing piece of work […]

RC Giant Czech Twin Takes Flight

RC Giant Czech Twin Takes Flight

Here’s a plane we’ve never seen modeled before: a giant-scale version of the Let L-410 Turbolet, a Czechoslovakian twin-engine short-range transport aircraft. With a 128-inch wingspan, the model weighs in at 28.6 pounds and is powered by two Axi 4130/20 motors, two PowerIon 5S 4P LiPo packs and two APC 19×12 propellers. This twin beauty was built and […]
Russian Front-Line Fighter

Russian Front-Line Fighter

It’s hard to beat the throaty growl of a Moki 250cc engine in a classic warbird! This great-looking Lavochkin LA-7 is piloted by Mick Burrell and was videotaped by our friends Dean and Pete Coxon at the Rougham Model Aircraft Show in the United Kingdom. We think the model looks to be 1/3.5 scale, and […]
Giant Junkers Ju-188

Giant Junkers Ju-188

Check out this twin warbird powered by TWO Moki 250cc engines! Franz Obenauf spent six years designing and building this unusual 1/4-scale model. The 18-foot-span aircraft sports a scale paint scheme by Franz’s fellow club member Klaus Herold. Nicely done, gentlemen! Thank you to RCScaleAirplanes for this terrific video of this impressive model’s rollout.

This video of Richard Rawle’s twin 1/3-scale showplanes outfitted with RC wing walkers will make your day! The formation flight of the Breitling Boeing Stearmans features Richard and Steve Holland on the sticks, with Sharon Stiles operating the animated 30% wing walkers. Each wing walker is fully operational, with five servos that allow them to move […]
RC F-14 Swing-Wing Tomcat

RC F-14 Swing-Wing Tomcat

This remarkable swing-wing F-14 is the handiwork of German modeler Rudolf Winter, who built it from the Fly Eagle Jet Model Factory kit. During the flight, the model’s wings sweep back for faster speeds and then move forward for slower flight and landing. The bright “flares” that are launched during flight are scale (the full-size used […]
