  1. One of the most ingenious things I have ever filmed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0f2W8L6xa2E
  2. A night flight of Jurgen's amazing F4U Corsair. At 3.1 metres wingspan how did he manage to keep it to only 4 KG with it's wing folding mechanism and twist and turn retractable landing gear ?! Amazing building and flying skills demonstrated here... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ldngc4fz3yU
  3. A fantastic creation demonstrated at Old Warden Aerodrome at the ModelAir event and in the hands of this experienced pilot it really was a joy to capture it flying in the warm breeze. Richard the owner and pilot shared that this is a model of 1934 Weir - W2 at roughly 1:6 scale. The full size aircraft is at the National Museum of Flight in Scotland.
  4. The most compact way to determine the max speed of your RC whether it be surface or air. Powered off the balance plug on your lipo. Also gives pack voltage. So small and light it can practically fit in any RC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Da4EvVmDHas
  5. Amazing and unique twin Jet Central Mammoth turbine engine powered ME-262. A unique scratch built model. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUOWHSG2EgM
  6. Just the best sound you can hear from under the cowl of an FW-190. Moki 150cc 5 cylinder radial. Sounds stunning. TopRC Model FW-190 Specification : Wing Span: 2362mm/93in Length: 1990mm/78.3in Flying Weight: 13.9 kg Wing area: 91.2dm2 Engine: 60-80cc-100cc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MprJYD0PFzM
  7. This seriously large P-47 was flown at the Stow Maries Scale RC Show by John Mason of TJD Models. It has wingspan of 122 inches, the weight is around 70 lbs and the model is powered by a DLE-170. Other engine options for this giant are the DA-200, DLE-222, MOKI 250 and 300. Plan available at http://www.meister-scale.com/Thunderbolt25/index.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvjI76zmSzc
  8. It doesn't get any better than this. Flying my Spitfire in formation with another using head tracked FPV technology. Just amazing ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrHq9aF1Qvo
  9. Worked out better than expected. Only one minor collision but the relative speed was low so was just a bump ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WSk6iG4a6s
  10. Amazing flights by Seba Silvestri experimenting with the broad CG range of this iconic airliner. An additional kit to install the realistic nose movement is available. It can either be powered by two 90mm EDFs with 12S 8000mAh Lipos or one or two turbines. Length: 3400mm Wingspan: 1450mm Engine: 2× 90mm Electric Ducted Fan or 2 x 45N turbine Battery: 12S 8000mA/h (2x6s 8000mA/h) Flying Time: ~ 7 Minutes Take Off Weight: Depending on the equipment 11-12 kg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPGDhscw7DE
  11. Very quick assembly but the transmitter setup for the elevons and canards was a little challenging. On first flight I failed to get this jet in the air with 6S6000 pack. CG too far forward. But with 6S5000 it jumped into the air. Trimmed out for roll quickly on first circuit then hit the deck for low smooth passes and nice axial rolls. Another excellent jet from Freewing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0CAVJPYq8M
  12. Quick assembly with no glue, drop in your receiver and battery pack and it cruises along even in gusty wind. Great to see the iconic shape of the Hurricane in the sky with this relatively cheap but very good looking warbird. Specs: Wing Span: 750mm (30”) Length: 622mm (24.5”) Weight: 430g Thrust ratio: 1:1 Motor: 2408-1300KV brushless ESC: 20A brushless Gyro: Intelligent 6-axis with 2 flight modes (beginner-expert) Servo: 9g x 4 Propeller: 8x6 3 blade https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXOfIeIZrbk
  13. Joel's aspiration to achieve vertical take off, transition to flight and vertical landing has had its challenges. There have been disappointments along the way...but he's persistent and the latest results are promising.
  14. The Tundra is back with some shrewd improvements that will make it more durable than it's predecessor. I highlight these and throw it about in the air during it's maiden flight. Available here: Durafly Tundra V2 (PNF) - Red/Blue - 1300mm (51
  15. Jet Legend F-16 flown in superb scale style with several low passes down the strip
