You can purchase the Apollo plan at www. myhobbystore. com After many years spent flying in Kent, I retired to Dorset and joined the Phoenix MFC, a very friendly and well-organised club. Electric gliding has proved to be pretty popular here, and having competed in many glider events up and down the UK over many years I decided to design a model that fitted the bill for the clubs electric thermal competition.

The Sonerai plan is £9. 95 atwww. myhobbystore. com I wanted a model for winter flying, the requirement being that it should fit in the car in one piece, be tough enough for rough-field abuse and be easy to hand-launch by the pilot.

The Tornado plan and mouldingscan be purchased atMyHobbyStore. com Please note that the article below is published to assist those building the Tornado. Nigel wrote the article in 2004 since when cheap brushless motors, ESCs and Li-Po batteries have become commonplaceeffectlively replacingNiCD and NiMH cells along with brushed motors and gearboxes in most applications. A 400-600 watt brushless power system is suggested for this model.

To order the Airbus plan, mouldings and/or CNC wood pack go to myhobbystore. com Given the huge success of the Airbus European Consortium over the last two decades it was only a matter of time before Airbus would challenged the military stranglehold that US manufacturers have on the aviation world with aeroplanes such as the C-130 Hercules, C-17, C-5a and C-141. The A400M is destined to be technologically superior to the Hercules by having a predominantly composite construction, state of the art avionics, enhanced cargo handling systems, a superior power plant, advanced propeller technology, and performance criteria close to that of a turbofan-powered aircraft. The internal design of the A400 has been maximised to permit payloads such as air-to-air refuelling tanks, attack helicopters, armoured combat vehicles, 116 troops, 66 stretchers plus 25 medical staff for medical evacuation, food, civil excavators and dump trucks.

You can order the Lacey M10 plan at www. myhobbystore. com When Joe Lacey designed and built his little M. 10 back in the late 50s and early 60s for the American home-built market he couldn't have imagined that it would become more popular as a model than it ever did as a full-size.

You can buy the Toot Sweet plan atmyhobbystore. com About ten years ago I designed a 25" span biplane that flew on a 1. 5cc diesel engine. This model, which performed nicely but was definitely not for those of a nervous disposition, was published in Radio Modeller as a free plan called Yuppy Love.

The Whizzza plan can be purchased at My Hobby Store. com Whizzza isa42" span, direct descendent of my 32" spanFizza featured in the May 2005 issue of RCM&E. Whizzza offers greater aerobatic capability coupled with the increased smoothness that only comes with a larger model, all assisted by a greater C of G-to-elevator moment. After a development journey involving several prototypes the design before you was born - easy to build and rugged, but with flight characteristics probably suited to the everyday club flier.

This is the fourth in my dogfight double series, and one that, quite frankly, Ive been itching to do. Since beginning the series some five years ago with the Spitfire and Me109 the pace of electric flight technology has cracked on relentlessly, with seemingly no bounds. The early models relied on Speed-400 brushed motors, Gunther props and 9. 6V 800AR NiCad packs.

Fast and furious. . . no, that doesn't describe the model, merely the way this design went from drawing board to RCM&E free plan.

The plan, wood pack and mouldings for this model can be purchased at myhobbystore. com Click here to go to the Typhoon build photos page. Early in 2007 the ed. took me to one side and asked if Id be happy to design a model, the subject of which was to be decided by RCM&E readers.

The Edge 540 plan or Dec 2008 back issue can be purchased at www. myhobbystore. com. I've always had a soft spot for the Zivko Edge.

The Limit EX plan can be purchased atwww. myhobbystore. com Many moons ago, I was out slope soaring, when one of the lads produced an entire model from his rucksack. One or two of the gang smiled knowingly as this tiny little aircraft - which was all of 18" span - was committed to a 35mph blow.

The Fizza plan can be purchased at www. myhobbystore. com As electric motors get more powerful and efficient, and battery capacities go up and their weight comes down, its very easy to get carried along by the mania for the latest and greatest gear. Before you know it, you find that you've lashed out far more money than you intended on some specialised piece of equipment for a complex model - last years twin-400BL Tornado being a case in point! The idea behind this column, though, is to promote low-cost, entry-level electric flight.
