Joel Vlashof flies his scratch build VTOL prototype for the first time. A 12S flight pack powers the Scheubeler 130mm EDF system with 4 nozzles controlled by a kk2.1 flight controller with custom VTOL software. Next steps are to add the fuselage wings and achieve transition from vertical take off to flight...and...

Brilliant VTOL. So simple to fly even in strong wind ! Take-off vertically, transition to normal flight with flick of a switch, and then flick switch back for vertical landing (or hand grab). Superb.

This will be my first time going. I already have the time off of work. Now I need to figure out who else is going! Who will I get to meet and hang out with? I am surprised that I am the one to start this year's thread! I also need to figure out what airplanes, helis, and quads to bring... should I bite the bullet...

My name is Stan.. Glad to be part of the GS crowd.. I have been flying RC since 1969... Started flying giant scale when no chain saw or weed wacker was safe!!

Looking for advise.... I recently came into a 30% yak 54 with a DA50r motor. I am looking to lighten the plane a bit, currently it has a 24oz (dubro)? tank. From looking around I see most 50cc guys recommnding a 16 to 20oz tank so I purchased a 17oz tank. Do you guys think this will be right for approx 10min flight...

Out again for my second flying session with the Extra 330LX. I'm liking it more and more each time I fly it. I've got a 35% Krill Extra 330SC ready to fly BUT I'm going to get my raise my skills with this Extra 330LX before I take that for a spin.

Filmed at the Large Model Association Cosford Show. You can't deny the effort and skill that must go into designing, building and flying this superb giant scale models. It was a challenging day for flying with the cross wind but nothing deters the pilots from putting on a display for the paying public....

Hi all, new here. I am interested in building a 1/6 xf5f Skyrocket. Is anyone aware of a 1/6 scale 9 cylinder radial engine? I want to build a Blackhawk version as detailed and accurate as possible, with running radials as opposed to dummys. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
