Pro Weathering Techniques

Pro Weathering Techniques

If you really want to make your scale airplane come to life, and make it look as though it’s been flying around for a while, you need to do some weathering, especially on the underside. As with all things in life, when they get used, airplanes get dirty! How much weathering should you do? Consult your […]
Setting Up Multi-Motor Electrics

Setting Up Multi-Motor Electrics

It is no secret that the advantages of electric motors used with multi engine airplanes far outweigh the disadvantages when compared to glow power. First there is the clean factor; you never have to wipe oil off of your plane when using electric power, unless of course you flew too close to the overly rich […]
The First Fokkers!

The First Fokkers!

These RC models are replicas of the very first airplane designed by Anthony Fokker in 1911. The multitude of bracing cables gave the impression of a spider, hence its Dutch name, “Spin.” Fokker taught himself to fly in his second Spin! Built and piloted by Klaus Fischer and Heiner Wintermann, these 14-foot-span planes each weigh […]
Scale RC Switch Hatch Cover

Scale RC Switch Hatch Cover

One of the quickest ways to ruin the look of a scale model airplane is to install your RC radio power switch so everyone can see it. Hiding radio switches is big part of every scale project and with my current project I also wanted to hide the radio’s on/off switch and charge receptacle. With […]

Bomb Drop! Easy Upgrade.

Bomb Drop! Easy Upgrade.

My son Sean and I have been flying RC for about 10 years here in sunny South Florida. He started at the age of 8 and quickly became a confident, fearless pilot, which is typical for the savvy youngsters who aren’t paying for the stuff. We progressed through the trainers and got into warbirds and […]

Tips for Painting Micro Pilot Figures

Tips for Painting Micro Pilot Figures

For the Flyzone Micro Albatros and the micro Fokker Dr.I Triplane, there’s a little white styrofoam, super lightweight pilot bust included in the box. But few RC modelers add this little guy because it requires some painting to make him look like a WW1 aviator instead of a snowman! Here’s some tips to make the […]
Friday Fractured Flyers! RC Trauma

Friday Fractured Flyers! RC Trauma

Here’s a fun way to end the work week! We found several great RC airplane crash videos from a fun loving club who’s not afraid to show the darker side of our hobby. We all know watching airplanes losing the aerodynamic argument with gravity is painful, unless of course it’s someone else’s airplane doing the ground […]
RC Warbird Formation Flying

RC Warbird Formation Flying

As if flying giant scale warbirds like the Top Flight giant scale P-51D Mustang isn’t exciting enough all but itself, some guys who attend large national and regional warbird meets are always looking for a little something extra. Recently, at the Warbirds over the Rockies event, Rich Uravitch caught a sight that surely got everyone’s […]
Magnetic Engine Cowl Attachment

Magnetic Engine Cowl Attachment

Recently, I found out that home repair stores like Home Depot stock in their hardware section Rare-Earth magnets ideal for use as engine cowling attachment devices. They come in all sorts of sizes and types and for my ongoing workshop build-along for the Sopwith Camel, I used 1/4 inch and .47 inch diameter x 1/8 […]
FAST & LOUD! Reno Rear Bear

FAST & LOUD! Reno Rear Bear

Sometimes, it’s not the size of the RC aircraft, but rather the sound and speed that capture the heart. This video of Ricardo la Valle flying  his Reno Racer Grumman F8F-2 Bearcat in the famous Rare Bear colors was shot at the Weston Park Model Airshow. As soon as he cranks up the engine and […]
