Amazing creativity from the DMFV Indoor Flying Team at the Modell-Hobby-Spiel trade fair. Almost all of their models were scratch built from 0.2mm depron. Such fun to watch them fly these but also to the backing track and theme of the race.

Jurgen shows us another of his scratch built, ultra light, creations at the Leipzig Modell-Hobby-Spiel trade fair. This Catalina weighs in at only 38g and is 1:48 scale. Features differential power from the 2 motors and a light system. He even flies it off water !

Best example you will find of big sky RC aerobatics. This is Rainer Kamitz giving a demonstration with his Pitts S1S with perfect use of smoke throughout.

The day I see a full size aircraft prop hanging a few feet off the ground, I will see the point in it

Obviously 'hovering' at low altitude is not about scale flying Richard. It's a demonstration of skill in a high risk situation. It's a small but entertaining but of a whole aerobatic flight. All of the Pitts flight looked very scale to me. The high alpha pass was a very small part of it and that is scale. There are several full size pilots that do it. There was no 'hovering' in that flight.

Another creation from depron wizard Jürgen Schönle. This Douglas DC-3 Dakota features retracts and navigation lights. These micro RC aircraft take significant effort to build. Jurgen told me that some of the individual parts can take 10 attempts to create because the 0.2mm depron material used is so fragile. For that reason it is not possible to mass produce these RC aircraft or supply kits. Just enjoy this DC-3 fly in the hands of its ingenious designer and builder.

Details from Jürgen. The motors are from E-flite UMX B-17, 8 channel Deltang receiver, retracts self made, elevator linear servo 1.5g from Spektrum and 1.7g servo for aileron. Llght system is self made

British Airways Freewing AL37 RC twin 70mm EDF Airliner

Takes about 1 hour to assemble and then quite a bit of effort to apply the custom scheme. A combination of automotive paint and decals. Flying this EDF jet is very easy compared to other RC jets. Flies like a trainer and slows down nicely for a flared landing.

The location for the Freewing AL37 review looks like Wisley Airfield, Ockham. In the past I have cycled across there a few times when going to the North Downs (Surrey Hills) or picking up the River Wey and navigations towpath. I didn't spot it in the video but near the disused runway is a radio navigation beacon used by airliners inbound to Heathrow. As I recall the 'armco' barrier was put across the runway to stop pilots of light aircraft 'visiting'.

If the land owner has given permission to fly RC on the Ockham site it would be useful to know?

Great to see a B-25J Mitchell in a not so common scheme. Flown in great scale style by Bob at a fly-in last Spring. In the air against the sky you would think it was the real deal.

Jon Porter, Director of Microaces, gave me an introduction to his range of unique depron foam sheet constructed micro radio controlled historic model aircraft with the Bristol F.2b. These kits are as Jon describes a cross between a folded card model and an Airfix kit. It takes minimal skills to build one of these model aircraft if you follow the comprehensive instructions and guidance.

Microaces design and manufacture innovative model replica kits of historic aircraft that are of display quality BUT make exceptional flyers with the aid of micro radio control equipment. Each kit closely resembles a specific aircraft that has earned its place in the Aviation Hall of Fame. Whether because of the daring pilot that flew it or because of its own reputation for magnificence.

Designed and manufactured in the UK, Microaces kits use modern materials, an advanced printing system and accurate laser cutting to make the components for each kit. This all combines to create a very lightweight, yet beautifully detailed scale aircraft that can be flown indoors and out.

A rubber band free flight De Havilland Tiger Moth kit converted to radio controlled electric power...and it flew so well. This 18 inch / 460mm wingspan kit is available from Vintage Model Company (https://www.vintagemodelcompany.com/tiger-moth.html) and takes very little time to build apparently. With modern micro servos, small brushless electric speed controllers and motors the conversion isn't too challenging either.

Joel's aspiration to achieve vertical take off, transition to flight and vertical landing has had its challenges. There have been disappointments along the way...but he's persistent and the latest results are promising.

Converting the Freewing Avanti EDF jet to turbine power

It's not so difficult.
