Blast from the Past, CAD Kaos

Blast from the Past, CAD Kaos

One of my all time favorite RC designs has been the 60 size Kaos designed and flown by famous aerobatic guru Joe Bridi. Many copies have been built and flown over the years, and I even built a newer version using my own CAD drawings. I had an old dog-eared copy of the plans, so […]

Model Airplane Radio Programming Made Easy

There are some basic radio programming features that all pilots should know to improve their airplane’s performance, and they can be used on any airplane to make flying more enjoyable. When these features are used and programmed correctly, you will experience a faster rate of learning and better results. These programming features are used by […]
Making Heavy Duty Steel Brackets

Making Heavy Duty Steel Brackets

When you want to make something that will take a lot abuse, like the axle guides on a giant scale airplane’s landing gear, there’s nothing tougher than steel. For my current 27.5% scale Nieuport 24 WW I biplane project, I decided to use 0.032 (1/32 inch) mild steel sheet to form the bottom guide plates. […]

Workshop Soldering Tips

Workshop Soldering Tips

There is always that occasional opportunity to do some soldering. When you need to add some connectors to a battery pack, or to make a set of wiring adapters for your battery charger, using heat and molten metal to join wires together is one of the oldest do-it-yourself tasks for RC hobbyists. The task is […]

Tips for flying an RC Triplane in Competition

With the 2019 flying season around the corner, I thought I would post this story again about getting my giant scale Fokker Triplane in shape to compete at the 2016 Top Gun Scale Invitational. For me, being invited by Frank Tiano to compete, is a big deal. I was extremely pleased with how well my […]
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 Academy of Model Aeronautics leadership team is hard at work making sure lawmakers in Washington, DC, will ensure that AMA members will continue to legally fly RC aircraft. It is so important that the RC modeling community has a strong voice in Washington! Here’s what the AMA has to say about the FAA’s proposed […]
Making RC Brass Fittings — Saving Time and Effort

Making RC Brass Fittings — Saving Time and Effort

Bracketry is an old term referring to making small brass brackets for scale RC model airplanes. Mostly used for attachment points where you need a solid hard-point for the attachment of wing struts and rigging wires for biplanes and other wire braced airplanes. For the longest time, this was all done by hand, using fine-toothed […]

The old original plans were falling apart and so it was time for an upgrade! If you are a Snoopy fan, watch out for the new 50th […]
