    I gave the scout’s pilot Nigel a scarf and put a nice wood prop on the plane. I also replaced the 72mhz system that was older than me with Spektrum.

    This actually had a minor developing issue and turned out odd.

    If you look closely you can see some of the smoke from the exhaust.

    25-35 + year old Scratch Build Scout

    I picked this up at a swap meet for cheap and after about 5 attempts it finally got in the air. Attempt one failed because the firewall detached from the plane and random bits started falling off since the glue was old and brittle. Attempts 2-4 had engine/fueling issues, and finally on attempt 5...

    1:8.67 Scale Handley Page O-400 - Flite Fest 2022 Dawn Patrol Challenge

    I have been looking at the Handley Page O-400 Which was a 1916 Bomber with a 100ft wing span. At 1:6 scale... the wingspan would be 16ft. Fuse will be 10ft long, and a 16ft wingspan. Making it difficult to transport/Build. After confirming a smaller scale would work for the challenge. History...

    FTFC20 SPAD XIII designed by Zephyr1

    My entry into this challenge will be a Spad XIII. The initial plans call for a 30in wingspan, and that's what I am going to be doing initially. However I do plan on scaling it up to near a 40in wingspan in line with Ben's PT-17. I usually design a lot of EDFs, so it will be fun to do something...

    Guillows SE5a Kit 202 Rubber Power to RC Conversion

    I haven't built a Guillows kit in over 45 years. The last Guillows kit I built as a boy was this SE5a. It was rubber powered and covered with the green tissue that came in the kit. I remember it wasn't a great flier. The rubber and prop didn't have enough thrust for it to climb well. The landing...

    After The Nieuport 24, Bristol Fighter F2b

    I found the images/video on Youtube, but waiting to hear back from the New Zealand World War One Club who does the website with all the information on these classic planes and see if I can use some original photos to help build it. I would say in two or three months, the Nieuport will be done...
