The February 2008 issue should be with subscribers any day now and in the shops by the weekend. We’ve another packed issue which includes the following reviews –

  • Yak 54 – Chris Broad flies the big aerobat from Graupner
  • Air One Mini – Pint sized but potent? The little glider that could be the perfect sloper!
  • O.S. 75 AX – Brian Winch devours the new powerhouse from Osaka
  • Twister Sky Lift – It’s finally here so how does the new Chinook lookalike fly?

    We have some great columns and features.

Andy Ellison describes flying the figure of eight and the inside loop in his ‘B’ certificate tutorial and Peter Miller starts a new two-part basic aerodynamics tutorial which should help every modeller. Alex Whittaker describes his system for making bespoke lettering and graphics and there’s lots more too!

    We’ve another fantastic competition prize – one of our biggest in fact – £400 worth of Extreme Flight Extra 300 and an electric power package comprising motor, ESC and a Li-Po battery, all courtesy of the good folks at Freestyle-RC.

    This months free plan is the Supermarine Walrus (see the RCM&E gallery for build photos) a lovely model from Cyril Carr that has immense presence in the air.
