As many of you know, I am an aerobatic pilot. I have needs for my airlplanes that exceed standard control offered by warbirds and sport scale models. I need to roll straight, make tight loops and with 3d flying and I need to perform post-stall maneuvers with the plane flying very slow, or even stalled and hovering.

Repairing a battery could be dangerous so from the outset you must assume this procedure has inherent risks that you must mitigate.
LIPO batteries are volatile and if damaged or punctured could catch fire. For that reason you should not perform this task indoors. Continue reading How To Fix a Broken LIPO Balance Lead
I recently started building a 2.4m balsa, SR-9 Stinson reliant and almost without warning I was bitten by the scale bug. Before you know it you’re adding details here and there and getting a little carried away.I started wondering what would be required to add a sound system to a plane and ultimately, adding that next level of detail.

I fell in love with this airplane the moment that I pulled it out of the box. It was well packed and sealed to protect it during transport and this is important when you consider just how far a model has to travel to make it half way around the world.

The following are the best tips I have compiled from many sources and contributors. Continue reading Michael Wargo’s Top Ten Flying Tips (Plus 1)
We’ve all seen the guy who runs like an ageing warrior with a spear at the ready, determined to launch his spear into a close earth orbit. In reality, his sprint falls short and he tosses the glider like he has given up the will to live. Never was there a greater anticlimax!
Hands up who has seen a botched hand launch so sketchy it smashes into the ground full throttle ripping the front end clean off? Continue reading How to Take off or Launch an RC Plane

Every RC pilot sooner or later will probably have a bunch of different models.
I really love FPV flying and have a few pretty fast FPV wings besides masses of other planes and copters that give me the adrenaline rush that I sometimes need. Continue reading Night Walrus Review
