Winter is coming.... So, it's time to start building something. My last project had a structural failure in flight, so I'm going to be paying a lot of attention to structural integrity while still worrying about weight. I ordered a scaled up short kit from Sunset Models for the Palmer Shrike Commander. The...

Mark Hinton flies his large scale Aviation Design Rafale at the HobbyKing UK Live event. I have filmed this in the past at other UK shows but on this occasion Mark had added some simulated flare counter-measures. Looked good against the dark skies we had on the particular day.

Gregg gave us a superb demonstration of his super scale Zero at the North London MFC Scale Day. Built from a Meister plan. Wingspan is 108 inches. Overall weight is 40 lbs. The engine is a Sachs Dolmar 70cc. Features a detachable fuel tank which he dropped towards the end of his flight. Fortunately it wasn't full...

A custom project I am working on. Currently working on wings and started sheeting wing gull. Wingspan is 158" Hopefully I can get her out end of this year to make room for my other projects.

Hello, I currently have 48" planes, mostly fly sport, some precision, some 3d. I would like to purchase a larger plane to fly with some 6s batteries I have laying around for my heli's. I have my eye on a 73" Laser 230s to fly electric for awhile with the option to convert to 12s or gas down the road. Does anyone...

OK. Hopefully Tanner - @Xpress - can chime in here... Looking at scratching out a non-electrified pattern ship and planning on servos. Not many high voltage low profile servos available out there. Mini/micro servos look to be promising. I have been using the Hitec HS-7245mh (1.2oz weight -...

A new version of the T-28 Trojan in, what I think, is the best scheme Durafly have ever applied to a model. Takes a few minutes to assemble, drop in a receiver and setup the transmitter. No decals to apply. It comes out of the box as you see it on the box. In the air the most noticeable characteristic is how slow...

This was fun to film. Who needs expensive turbine jets when you can get these amazing ready to fly electric ducted fan EDF jets for a fraction of the price. They look superb in the air and especially when there are 2 of them being flown so well together.

My Areoworks 540 came with Ed Nano batteries and a balance charge cord that connected to a hitec charger. The cord does not match my Cellpro connectors. Any ideas?
