  1. Fantastic DH.91 built and flown by Peter Harbusch. At 1:8 scale and 4 metres wingspan and 2.7 metres length this is a large scale model which looks impressive in the air. Take off weight is ~20 kg. The wing profile is NACA 2415. The four motors are brushless 1000W with 15x8 vario-prop. 5 x 5S-5000 lipos are used for each flight. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yurBjJ-c7FY
  2. The CARF Models B-2 flies at Weston Park International Model Show for the first time. On take off the B-2 inadvertently heads to the right and just gets into the air by virtue of a fortuitous bump in the grass strip. Quick reactions from the pilot on the ailerons steered the jet away and into its ascent to start its display. After several minutes of scale flight the final descent and landing almost turned into disaster with the B-2 touching down a little too early and bouncing off the undulating grass surface. Fortunately the acrobatic flip resulted in minimal damage. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NMP2P7PVI8
  3. The Hanriot HD.1 was a French World War I single-seat fighter aircraft. Rejected for service with French squadrons in favour of the SPAD S.7. The type was supplied to the Belgian and the Italian air forces, with whom it proved highly successful. Of a total of about 1,200 examples built, 831 were produced by Italian companies under licence. This beautiful radio controlled replica of the Hanriot HD.1 was built and flown at LMA Cosford Show by Ian Turney. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yekGdZDxghY
  4. The latest large scale EDF jet from Avios. Features a howling 90mm ducted fan system that pushes it along at good speed, retracting landing gear with gear separately sequenced gear doors, an air brake and LED light system. Needs a 6S5000 to 6000 pack to fly. Take off and landing were very easy and in between it performed very nice slow scale aerobatics. Use of the rudder was mandatory in the turns especially in the wind I flew in. Great fun ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSTaRlQd_KQ
  5. Undoubtedly a work of flying art and a very well setup reproduction of this 1930s airliner. Worth watching the engine start sequence alone ! Flown by Joachim Damrath, this Handley Page 42 oozes style and elegance as it cruises around the sky at the Airliner Treffen Show. At 1/10th scale the Wing span / wingspan is 3.96 metres and length is 2.8 metres. A fantastic and unique flying aircraft of a bygone era of airliner passenger travel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjWwgaweJNs
  6. At 1:6 scale and 18 feet wingspan these are certainly giant scale RC aircraft. Each Lanc is powered by four Zenoah 38 engines. Flown by Steve and Andy at Weston Park International Model Show. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQRrmHJeF0U
  7. Not just jets at Airliner Treffen. Some very nice fixed wing passenger type aircraft were displayed. Here Ralph and Wolfgang fly their scratch built Beech-18s. I don't think they had flown together before but they did an awesome display for the attending crowd ! Scale: 1:4 Wingspan: 3.6 metres Length: 2.58 metres Weight: 23.8 kg Engines: 2 x ZG 45cc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTW1FQxDrvU
  8. Owned and built by Keith Mitchell, this model took 5 years of combined design and construction. Its initial flights were taken under the Large Model Association scheme (approved by the CAA) for model aircraft over 80KG. It underwent 12 test flights for combined flight time of more than 2 hours to get it's LMA\CAA certificate to fly at public shows. A rarely modelled scale radio controlled aircraft in an amazing scheme applied by the master, Philip Noel of Pinnacle Aviation. Specifications of this fantastic model. Wingspan: 21 Feet Length: 19 Feet Weight: 220 Lbs Engines: 4 x ZDZ 90cc petrol Props: 4 x 28 x 10 Biela Carbon Radio: Futaba 14 Channel Servos: 22 (13 channels for ailerons, elevator, rudder, flaps, throttle x 4, landing gear and lights) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6KSZaE0wIY
  9. Probably the best example you will see of flutter on an aircraft. Ramy's first flight at Airliner Treffen Show nearly ends in disaster when the push rod on the rudder becomes lose and the flutter destroys the lower part of the rudder. Added to that a bad hinge on an aileron results in flutter of the left wing. It all could have gone very badly wrong... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZwhRr-5zK4
  10. Our annual treat at seeing Dave Johnson's huge Avro Vulcan, powered by four gas turbine engines, flown at RAF Cosford. This year flown in formation with the equally large Victor flown by his son, Andy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha3msEeDAJ4
  11. Probably the best demonstration I have seen of Gunter Zielke's unique and innovative electronic smoke system. This also shows off the G-force initiation of the smoke system as the pilot performs some high speed aerobatics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMrRwGN0yLw

  13. 14 pilots put up their rides for a combined prop hang for a Show record! Even with their prop hanging skills this was no easy feat. Avoiding all the other RC aircraft was challenging and there was at least one near miss. Unfortunately there was one crash at the end. One adventurous pilot tries to fly through the ring of fire and catches his wing ending in total destruction of the model. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66PQjVaT-ds
  14. This Lockheed L-1011 Tristar would have been perfect by itself but when his son used the RC tug/tractor to pull it out to the runway...and pull it back to the pits... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22X2OTt5qd8
  15. Twin turbine powered Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird scorches down the strip at Airliner Treffen. Flown to perfection by Matthias Blaß with his father Walter, the builder of this jet, assisting on the flight line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-_bs54hNzI
