  1. Takes about 1 hour to assemble and then quite a bit of effort to apply the custom scheme. A combination of automotive paint and decals. Flying this EDF jet is very easy compared to other RC jets. Flies like a trainer and slows down nicely for a flared landing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKdbrhK5mag
  2. They don't just look like the real deal, they fly like them as well. Top skills ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSdcCO6MytQ
  3. Another creation from depron wizard Jürgen Schönle. This Douglas DC-3 Dakota features retracts and navigation lights. These micro RC aircraft take significant effort to build. Jurgen told me that some of the individual parts can take 10 attempts to create because the 0.2mm depron material used is so fragile. For that reason it is not possible to mass produce these RC aircraft or supply kits. Just enjoy this DC-3 fly in the hands of its ingenious designer and builder. Details from Jürgen. The motors are from E-flite UMX B-17, 8 channel Deltang receiver, retracts self made, elevator linear servo 1.5g from Spektrum and 1.7g servo for aileron. Llght system is self made http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0xcsU_WNRk
  4. Not an ideal landing approach but not bad either. Sometimes it's best to take the opportunity and not abort, go around, and aim for perfection. This is why... Bad luck. Fixable though I suspect. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HO-SmeIk26k
  5. About as basic as you can get for an RTF model. This is 3 channels and the auto-levelling is permanently switched on so it won't roll inverted. Good thing I guess for anyone who has not flown RC before. Add to that that it's a pusher and it is virtually indestructible which I proved by stalling it into the ground, hitting the camera man and flying into a tree. Admittedly this is at the toy end of the RC market but it's fun nonetheless for anyone just dipping their toe into RC flying before considering learning with something bigger. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0G0CdqPkL8
  6. I've flight tested a few of these all-in-the-box ready to fly models this year, and this is certainly the best looking one so far. Looks good and flies good. Perfect for the RC pilot who doesn't have time to build or assemble an RC plane. It's 3 flight modes allow a relative new RC pilot to enjoy it and use a trick/aerobatic button to make the P-51 do loops and rolls with a stick input. Expert mode removes the restriction on flying inverted and gives the pilot full control to fly their owner aerobatics. Flight time is really good at 7-8 minutes but dependent on throttle use obviously. It can move quite quickly so I was flying around at half throttle most of the time despite the gusty wind. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBcQxW94x7s
  7. Filmed this moment at Airliner Treffen in Germany. Built by Father and Son. Think they were quite happy after this flight. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9II6l-ntT24
  8. Awesome example of big sky RC aerobatics. This is Rainer Kamitz giving a demonstration with his Pitts S1S with perfect use of smoke throughout. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGSWUpg1MX4
  9. Sent to us by Banggood to try out. It's a cheap kit but a little challenging to assemble, modifications needed but rewarding once got it in the air.
  10. Jurgen shows us another of his scratch built, ultra light, creations at the Leipzig Modell-Hobby-Spiel trade fair. This Catalina weighs in at only 38g and is 1:48 scale. Features differential power from the 2 motors and a light system. He even flies it off water ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0OET7XFGgA
  11. Martin and Daniel, members of the DMFV Indoor Team, fly their amazing super light A-10 Warthogs indoors at the Modell-Hobby-Spiel Trade Fair in Leipzig, Germany. Not only are these guys amazing and ingenious builders but they are also superbly skilled RC pilots. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2NuzgbRpj8
  12. Amazing creativity from the DMFV Indoor Flying Team at the Modell-Hobby-Spiel trade fair. Almost all of their models were scratch built from 0.2mm depron. Such fun to watch them fly these but also to the backing track and theme of the race. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FELbmXdS4xM
  13. Giant but super light indoor flight of 3.1 metre 1:4 scale RC F4U Corsair with folding wings, twist & turn retracts. Filmed at Modell-Hobby-Speil in Leipzig, Germany. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfz7upIjA50
  14. An amazing piece of aero-modelling. Flown with the famous Reds Duo who we regularly see on the UK RC Show circuit. Technical specification of the Concorde Scale: 1:6 Wingspan: 4 metres Length: 10 metres Height: 1.85 metres Take-off weight: 149 kilogrammes Turbine: 4 x Jetcat P300 Fuel: 4 x 6 Litres Transmitter used is a PowerBox CORE with a PowerBox PBR-26D receiver. This Concorde model has 18 Hacker TD2612S servos ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FWgbMHYhPs
  15. The Pilatus PC-21 is a turboprop-powered advanced trainer with a stepped tandem cockpit. The full size aircraft is manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft of Switzerland. This model kit is manufactured by Tomahawk Design in Germany. In the air it looks and sounds no different to the full size aircraft. It is powered by a JetCat turbo-prop engine. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYI__ZM9I48
