Durafly Tundra v2 STOL aircraft

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.

Ford Trimotor "THE TIN GOOSE" North American 3 Engine Mail 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 radial e...

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.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKdbrhK...

Micro Douglas DC-3 Dakota (with retracts & lights)

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...

Giant scale MD-11 airliner. Good flight but bad landing

A very nice flight of this MD-11 nearly ended in disaster with the less than graceful landing. Failure to flare resulted in the nose wheel touching down just before the mains and pitching the aircraft up into an unrecoverable stall. This McDonnell Douglas MD-11 Martinair Cargo has 1 turbine engine. ...

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.

Kyosho Learjet EDF jet revisited

After the less than successful maiden where an overshoot on landing ripped out the landing gear, James split the ailerons for flaps and put in beech bearers to support the mains. Time for a second attempt.
