Triplane Tricks at Top Gun

Triplane Tricks at Top Gun

Well, today on Friday, I posted my third flight round with my Fokker Triplane. Much better than yesterday when I suffered a deadstick in the middle of round 2. It turned out that the clunk and pickup line came undone in my gas tank! Small things matter. Anyway, after a repair and replumbing the gas […]

Flight Technique: Nail the Landing!

Flight Technique: Nail the Landing!

Since the early days of RC flying, pilots have been giving landing advice, particularly if there is any sort of wind involved. However, some have recently been getting it backward when they state that during a normal landing, the ailerons should be used to keep the wings level and the rudder should be used to […]

Get ready for fun-fly season!

For almost forever, RC model clubs have cooked up all sorts of ideas to keep their members interested in attending flying-field events. These outings bring the members and their families together and promote the growth of the hobby—and the club—while offering some weekend summertime fun! Thus, the fun-fly was born.

RC Math: 1 Mustang + 1 Mustang = 1 F-82

RC Math: 1 Mustang + 1 Mustang = 1 F-82

Here’s another great project from veteran builder Rick Michelena. This time, Rick does some fun ARF math: P-51 + P-51 = F-82! He writes: The great element of R/C modeling is this: using your imagination allows for any subject to be modeled. Over the past 30 years, I have witnessed the tremendous change that has occurred in our hobby with […]

After crashing it at the 2012 Top Gun, Matt rebuilt his all-wood warbird, originally built from Roy Vaillancourt plans, and it now has a new DLE-120 gas […]
Soviet Space Duo

Soviet Space Duo

Check out this one of a kind duo! Modeled after the full-size Russian Antonov AN-225 and the Buran spaceship it airlifted for takeoff, these jet models can really put on a show. After takeoff, the Buran launch gets a little interesting but both aircraft make it back safely to terra firma. Thanks to RCHeliJet for taking this […]
Pick Your Power — Gas, Glow, or Electric

Pick Your Power — Gas, Glow, or Electric

There’s an old saying that suggests, “If in doubt, add power!” And we have to admit, there are some Model Airplane News editors who do believe there’s just no substitute for horsepower. But when it comes to selecting which kind of power system to use, many RC modelers can use a little help. Whether you […]
