    Ford Trimotor "THE TIN GOOSE" 3 Engine Transport

    Sharing a video I shot of a unique scale aircraft I've not seen modelled before. The interior matched the excellent detail on the exterior and it was nicely flown on the day by its owner. This 1:6 scale Trimotor has a 4 metre wingspan and was designed and constructed by Joachim Damrath. The...

    Turbine jets that perform high risk Hovering and 3D

    Rarely seen and that's no surprise because it is relatively high risk and that these jets typically cost $20K+. Not for the average RC pilot.

    North American B-25J Mitchell Medium Bomber (TopFlite RC)

    Great to see a B-25J Mitchell in a not so common scheme. Flown in great scale style by Bob at a fly-in last Spring. In the air against the sky you would think it was the real deal.

    British Airways Freewing AL37 RC twin 70mm EDF Airliner

    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.

    Avios C-130 Hercules with parachute drop

    Exploring the slow flight characteristics of this model after a lot of feedback suggesting it 'flies like a rocket'. Just proves how wrong folks can be!

    Avios C-130 Hercules with parachute drop

    Superb re-creation of the C-130 with scale retractable landing gear and synchronised doors, flaps, operational cargo bay door and high intensity lights all round. Action from my first two flights after showing the kit itself before assembly.

    FlyFly Beechcraft DUKE B60 twin

    Took James a while to put this kit together. FlyFly kits are basically styrofoam airframes with the motor/escs thrown in so there was a lot to do. Patience paid off though and despite the excessive elevator throws it flew really well. [video]

    On maiden flight used too large a flight battery but on this second flight the 3S1500 transformed it into an awesome flyer.
