Each time you assemble your favourite ARTF it's a good idea to check for wear and tear on the servo leads, especially where the wires crimp into the plug.

If the wires are starting to break, then it's time to replace the whole plug. You could make new crimps but it's easier to solder on a fresh plug

Nigel Cartwright describes his own-design turbine helicopter

Not one for off-the-shelf models, I do enjoy building and flying the quirky and unusual. My background is in industrial modelmaking, engineering prototyping and the like, and in recent years I’ve been getting more into 2D and 3D CAD, as well as 3D printing. If I can, I’ll make a part rather than buy it!

Paul Cox reveals a simple way to bring your receiver status light to the fore

Knowing that your transmitter is solidly bound with your model's receiver can be a concern if the receiver is buried in the bowels of your pride and joy and you’re unable to view the status light to give you comfort and confidence.

Dynam are back and quality levels have improved too. David Ashby flies a biplane classic

I don’t know about you, but I do feel a little guilty when I see the great chunks of polystyrene used to protect foam models. It doesn’t bear thinking about how long that stuff will take to break down in landfill, making Dynam’s all-cardboard packaging a welcome sight.

In a Model Magic double header, Alex Whittaker celebrates two models from ace scale man, Gerhard Reinsch

I was told about the death of Gerd Reinsch in early August 2020. Gerhard was loved by many involved with the UK large scale model circuit. His lovely manner and ready sense of humour endeared him to his many UK fans. Most of all, he was famous for his large scale, highly detailed model aircraft which he flew with consummate skill.

Out of lockdown, Tim Hooper heads for the flying field to test fly some recent new builds and refurbs.

Flying wise it was a no-go for several weeks. Our field was shut, just as you'd expect when the weather turns gloriously sunny. Yes, I know that it would be possible to maintain the required social distancing on the flight line, but the clubhouse and pits could be problematical, and it simply wasn't worth the risk.
