Flight Journal’s WW II’s Last Dogfights special issue captures those last desperate battles which put VE/VJ days in a whole new perspective in this extended-length bookazine.

12-Engine Flying Boat

A true scratch-built project, this 1/10-scale Dornier DO-X done up in 1929 Lufthansa livery was designed, built and piloted by Michael Bräuer. This impressive built-up plane has a 16-foot wingspan and weighs in at 132 pounds, and it’s powered by twelve (12!) O.S. .62 4-strokes.

Winning Wildcat

Winning Wildcat

This 1/4-scale model of a Grumman Wildcat F4F is the handiwork of Nigel I’anson, who built it from a Modell Einer kit. The 50-pound fighter has a wingspan of 114 inches and is powered by a 250cc Moki five-cylinder radial engine spinning a 32×18 three-blade prop. Its unique landing gear is retracted by an air […]
Charging Multiple Packs

Charging Multiple Packs

Lithium-polymer cells have revolutionized electric flight, but as any e-flier knows, LiPo charging and maintenance can be time consuming. For optimum service life, LiPos should be stored around 3.8 volts per cell, which creates a bottleneck for spur-of-the-moment flying, and recharging batteries at the field can be a chore when you’d rather be in the […]

Stall Recovery 101

Stall Recovery 101

One of the hardest things to learn when you see a stall starting on a straight-ahead landing is that you should push on the elevator stick. This is difficult because all your instincts tell you to pull up! But to save the plane, you need a lower angle of attack, and you can get that […]

Done up in the colors of the Patrouille Acrobatique de France (the French Acrobatic Patrol, the precision aerobatic team of the French Air Force), this 6-foot-span Alpha Jet is a miniature version of the full size, from its detailed cockpit to its incredible scale landing gear. In this video, pilot Stéphan Laurens flies the model for […]
Amazing Hand-made Walnut RC Field Box

Amazing Hand-made Walnut RC Field Box

Michael Brent of Pilot-Portraits is a perfectionist and when he wanted a long lasting and beautiful field box, he went to his friend Nathaniel Brewster who admittedly has an addiction to hand-tool woodworking. All of his projects are constructed almost entirely by hand, from preparing the rough stock to finishing the final product, (though he does admit to […]
Top Gun Free Flight Projects

Top Gun Free Flight Projects

As we mentioned a little while ago, the 2016 Top Gun event in Lakeland, FL will be including a serious free flight rubber power airplane class. Of course these lightweight stick and tissue airplanes will have to be scale and the competition is open to all event participants. There are some basic rules but Frank […]
Ali and his super-size Skyraider

Super-size Skyraider

Custom-built by Phil Clarke of Fighter Aces for world-class pilot Ali Machinchy, this 30% scale Skyraider is based on an 80% enlargement of the 100-inch span Nick Ziroli plan. Phil notes, “The structure has been heavily modified to cater for the weight and size increase to allow the model to be successfully passed through the Large […]

Supersonic Scale Starfighter

Supersonic Scale Starfighter

Flown at the Jet World Masters competition, this 1/5-scale F-104N was built and piloted by Christophe Regnier. The 52.6-inch-span jet is built from a Skymaster kit, is powered by a Merlin 200 turbine and uses a Futaba radio for control. We especially like the touch-and-go and the drag chute that deployed on landing! Thanks to […]
