Large scale Handley Page 42 Vintage 1930s Airliner

Undoubtedly a work of flying art and a very well setup reproduction of this 1930s airliner. Worth watching the engine start sequence alone ! Flown by Joachim Damrath, this Handley Page 42 oozes style and elegance as it cruises around the sky at the Airliner Treffen Show. At 1/10th scale the Wing span / wingspan is 3.96 metres and length is 2.8 metres. A fantastic and unique flying aircraft of a bygone era of airliner passenger travel.

Russian Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-17 EDF jet

The latest large scale EDF jet from Avios. Features a howling 90mm ducted fan system that pushes it along at good speed, retracting landing gear with gear separately sequenced gear doors, an air brake and LED light system. Needs a 6S5000 to 6000 pack to fly. Take off and landing were very easy and in between it performed very nice slow scale aerobatics. Use of the rudder was mandatory in the turns especially in the wind I flew in. Great fun !

Had it been full size all on board would have gone through their wicker seats with that landing of the HP42

Yeah...that was a HARD landing. Amazing the landing gear stayed attached. Looked like the hubs were designed to explode to take the shock though ! laugh

The first landing flair would have been perfect had it not been 10 foot up in the air at the time. The wheels have mudguards over them and that's what comes off in the impact.

I have inherited a 120" version of this aircraft with 4 x 46's. It comes out a couple of times a year. It is the most space hungry shed hog imaginable. I wouldn't be that upset at it's demise but it flies well every time!

Mudguards! Ah. 4 x 46s was sound very nice. Bet you enjoy flying that !

Giant 2/3rd scale RC French WW1 HANRIOT HD.1 Fighter Biplane

The Hanriot HD.1 was a French World War I single-seat fighter aircraft. Rejected for service with French squadrons in favour of the SPAD S.7. The type was supplied to the Belgian and the Italian air forces, with whom it proved highly successful. Of a total of about 1,200 examples built, 831 were produced by Italian companies under licence.

This beautiful radio controlled replica of the Hanriot HD.1 was built and flown at LMA Cosford Show by Ian Turney.

Thanks Jos !

The CARF Models B-2 flies at Weston Park International Model Show for the first time. On take off the B-2 inadvertently heads to the right and just gets into the air by virtue of a fortuitous bump in the grass strip. Quick reactions from the pilot on the ailerons steered the jet away and into its ascent to start its display. After several minutes of scale flight the final descent and landing almost turned into disaster with the B-2 touching down a little too early and bouncing off the undulating grass surface. Fortunately the acrobatic flip resulted in minimal damage.

Fantastic DH.91 built and flown by Peter Harbusch. At 1:8 scale and 4 metres wingspan and 2.7 metres length this is a large scale model which looks impressive in the air. Take off weight is ~20 kg. The wing profile is NACA 2415. The four motors are brushless 1000W with 15x8 vario-prop. 5 x 5S-5000 lipos are used for each flight.

  • Engines: two Zenoah Z74 twins with trumpets. Each has a 1 1/2 litre tank.

The de Havilland DH.88 Comet is a British two-seat, twin-engined aircraft built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was developed specifically to participate in the 1934 England-Australia MacRobertson Air Race from the United Kingdom to Australia. Development of the DH.88 Comet was initiated at the behest of British aviation pioneer Geoffrey de Havilland, along with the support of de Havilland's board, being keen to garner prestige from producing the victorious aircraft as well as to gain from the research involved in producing it. The Comet was designed by A. E. Hagg around the specific requirements of the race; Hagg produced an innovative design in the form of a stressed-skin cantilever monoplane, complete with an enclosed cockpit, retractable undercarriage, landing flaps, and variable-pitch propellers.

Three Comets were produced for the race, all for private owners at the discounted price of £5,000 per aircraft. The aircraft underwent a rapid development cycle, performing its maiden flight only six weeks prior to the race. Comet G-ACSS Grosvenor House emerged as the winner. Two further examples were later built. The Comet went on to establish a multitude of aviation records, both during the race and in its aftermath, as well as participating in further races. Several examples were bought and evaluated by national governments, typically as mail planes. Two Comets, G-ACSS and G-ACSP, survived into preservation, while a number of full-scale replicas have also been constructed.

First EDF jet? New H-King FlyCat sport jet

Maiden flight video. It flew well but think the fan could do with a little balancing. Scoots along nicely nonetheless. Great little jet for a first timer to EDF who doesn't want the cost or complexity of retracts and flaps. Decals are pre-applied as well and from experience that can often take as much time as assembling the model.

Keeping the memory of Concorde alive. This giant scale dual turbine powered, Concorde is about as realistic as it can get.

I'll echo Jo's comment Dom. Thanks for making and putting up all these high quality vids. I don't spend a lot of time on the flightline at shows (I treat them more as shopping expeditions), so it's nice to know that when I get home, there's going to be film of anything I've missed, shot far better than I could manage!

Re the Comet, I was surprised to see it reappear. I assumed Steve had retired it...

Thanks Mike. Always great to hear folks enjoy the vids I upload.

I think Steve felt the Comet needed to be seen again after all these years. Certainly a winner with the crowd and almost 100,000 views on the video so would seem it was worth his effort.

The Pilatus PC-21 is a turboprop-powered advanced trainer with a stepped tandem cockpit. The full size aircraft is manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft of Switzerland. This model kit is manufactured by Tomahawk Design in Germany. In the air it looks and sounds no different to the full size aircraft. It is powered by a JetCat turbo-prop engine.

Hi Dom

I am normally a silent observer, but I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying your videos. The PC21 is lovely, and its worth watching just to see the prop start turning!!

Thanks Tim. Glad I included the start-up then. I have to confess that clip was actually from Weston Park! I didn't capture the start-up at the Nats because Steve was down the far end of the runway. For me the start-up is an essential part of any turboprop video. wink

Jürgen Schönle, a member of the DMFV Indoor Team performing at the Leipzig Modell-Hobby-Spiel Trade Fair, amazes the crowd at Modell-Hobby-Speil Trade Fair with an indoor flight of his 1:4 scale F4U Corsair. This model is built from extremely light depron foam and is powered by a motor with a gearbox which powers a balsa prop. The battery powering the model is a 3S2200 pack ! Wingspan of this model is 3.1 metres and total weight is 4KG. Jurgen is not only a master builder but an ace pilot and it was a pleasure to film this magnificent model in action.

Contrary to wide belief these models are not filled with helium. They are built with extremely light materials so the result is a model aircraft that has a very light wing loading that enables them to fly in tight spaces such as the exhibition hall at this event.
