  • — Vintage RC goes giant-scale

    Originally a 35-inch-span, free-flight model, the Worcraft Products’ Scarab was designed in the late ’40s and had elliptical planform flying surfaces, a centerline-mounted mono wheel for ground takeoffs, and two sub rudders along with a conventional top-mounted vertical stabilizer. This enlarged, 82-inch-span version pays tribute to the original design and...

  • — Covering tips: 3-color fuselage

    The fuselage adds some complexity to our covering procedures because of the compound curves and the overall shape of the fuselage. Plus we have three different colors that have to be added on to different parts of the fuselage. The placement of the color seams will have to match up...

  • — Wet Wings are Wonderful — Flying off Water!

    If 70% of the globe is covered with water, shouldn’t we have that same percentage of RC model floatplanes? No? Well, many RC clubs today are struggling to find suitable open flying sites and with growing urban sprawl, noise restrictions, and the cost of real estate all playing a factor,...

  • — Flush Fitting Aileron Servo Hatches — Strong and Neat for Better Performance

    When I built my 1/5-scale Sopwith Triplane, it had rather thin wings. Yes, a low-profile servo, such as Airtronics 94921 or Hitec 77BB, would fit with the shaft vertical, but I had only standard ones on hand, so I went with them. I made an 1/8-inch-thick and 2 7/8-inch-wide plywood...

  • — Tame your Tail-Dragger

    From sport planes and classic civilian aircraft to warbirds and fighters, where the little “steering” wheel is in back behind the main landing gear, the tail-dragger configuration remains very popular. Though the tailwheel has very little effect on the model’s flight performance, the landing gear configuration does make takeoffs and...

  • — SMOKE ON! — Make a Cheap & Easy Smoke Muffler

    A great way to add excitement to your RC flights is to add a smoke system. Do a loop or a roll and then add a dense, long-hanging smoke trail and you have an airshow! You can save some bucks by modiflying your stock muffler instead of buying a commercial...

  • — ARF Jet Makeover — Added details for the fast lane

    I’ve been waiting for a F86 Sabre EDF to come along that didn’t have a HUGE “out of scale”nose intake and didn’t cost an arm and a leg. Finally E-flite did it. Watching the performance of this model on the stock setup , I was finally satisfied. Having just finished...

    From Spektrum: The Spektrum VM435C headset is an affordable FPV headset/monitor combo that is loaded with features.
