3D Printing for Scale Airplanes

3D Printing for Scale Airplanes

OK, I could have gotten a lot more attention by titling this post “3D Printing Bombs” but I did not want the FBI coming to the MAN office. With today’s amazing new technologies seeming to be absolutely like magic, I decided to try out one of the several new 3D companies that offer services online. […]
One of a Kind Messerschmitt

One of a Kind Messerschmitt

Although the full-size German Me P.1110 was never produced, you can tell from this 1/3-scale RC version that it would have been a force to reckon with during WW II. Designed to be a high-altitude, jet-powered interceptor, it was intended as a deterrent to Allied bombing raids but the war ended before it could be put into production. Roland […]

Fantasy-Scale Flying Bicycle

Bet you’ve never seen RC models like these! Based on a real-life flying bicycle from the 1920s that actually flew across the English Channel, these unusual 13.7-foot aircraft are powered by King 95 engines and fly with 5-foot, 4-inch pilot figures behind the controls! Each model required close to 1,000 building hours, and they fly beautifully. Our […]

Installing a Dummy Rotary Engine — Dressing up my Camel — Part 3

Installing a Dummy Rotary Engine — Dressing up my Camel — Part 3

So, I finished up the dummy rotary engine for the Sopwith Camel this weekend. The over all project took only about 10 hours and spread over a few days, that’s no time at all. I finally decided to attach the molded engine to the inside of the engine cowling. This is the typical way to […]
Name that Big Bipe (It’s not a Jungmeister!)

Name that Big Bipe (It’s not a Jungmeister!)

This unusual RC bipe can really put on a show! The 13-foot-span, 67-pound aircraft is a scale model of an Icelandic homebuilt called an “Aerokot” that was designed and flown by aerobatic champion pilot Hunn Senadel. Based on a Jungmeister but slightly smaller, the plane got its name because it fit Hunn like a coat […]
