Danny Fenton describes his build of a DB Sport & Scale semi scale kit

Regular 'Make It Scale' readers may recall that I had purchased a DB Sport & Scale Auster Autocrat from an advert in RCM&E. The remit was for a fun model to try a few techniques I had been musing for several months. In fact, one had been on the cards for a few years! My mind works quite slowly sometimes but I do get there in the end.

The Editor heads to the hills with Composite RC Gliders two metre slope soarer.

Last month I covered the build of this sleek moulded glider and revealed its long heritage, it being an updated version of the RCRCM Typhoon. Since the original model first appeared around 2010 there is plenty of information regarding advanced set-ups online, especially for those of a more daring disposition who like to push their airframes to their limits. More on this later...

The Editor completes the build of RC Composite's two metre slope soarer.

In common with lots of moulded models the Edge is not supplied with any instructions. I guess the rationale is that if you've got to the stage in your model flying career where such a model appeals then you should have enough experience to piece it together. But everyone has to start somewhere so even a few brief notes would be helpful.

Alex Whittaker delves into a scale masterpiece from the secretive 'Spartacus', his 118-inch span Miles Gemini

Conceived as a four-seater light touring aircraft the Miles Messenger twin first flew on the 26th October 1945. The prototype was powered by a Blackburn Cirrus Minor engine. It was of wooden construction and had a retracting undercarriage.

Alex Whittaker takes a virtual visit to the centre of The Single Channel Cult

This long, drab, heartless Covid imposition has separated me from my friends over t’ Pennines in Yorkshire. Ah, Yorkshire, where men are men and allus’ buy their own pints. Anyway, my mates from God’s Own County share at least one passion with this here Lancashire Lad. Aye, at Pontefract they keep alight the sacred flame of all things Single Channel.

Tim Hooper fits a top spec motor to his R/C assist Keil Kraft rubber model.

Skipping back a couple of episodes to the ongoing saga of my Keil Kraft Gipsy (as recently re-kitted by Ripmax), we'd reached the giddy heights of winding several hundred turns onto the five metres of rubber that lay within the fuselage. We'd also reached the conclusion that winding all that rubber by using a finger pressed against a prop blade was a definite no-no.

When slope soaring in light winds an E-Assist system can help stop an unwanted trip to the bottom of the hill, as Chris Williams explains.

There exists, amongst the more austere members of the scale soaring fraternity, a tendency towards pursed lips and muttered imprecations when a propeller is observed on the front of an otherwise scale glider.
