August 2022




This month we start our regular columns with Tim Hooper and Bench Blog as he converts a small VMC Jodel D-18 to electric power and radio control. Next up is Scale Gliding with Chris Williams, who finishes his latest scale glider project and immediately starts another one before heading off to an early season White Sheet Scale Fly-In. In Aerobatic Scene, Keith Jackson looks at a home grown F3A design, the Bifinity from Dan Workman, before Alex Whittaker wraps things up with Weekenders and a look at a flying lawn mower and a twin glow powered Mosquito – quite an unusual power choice for a multi-engined model these days…

This month’s Pro-Plan is courtesy of Ton van Munsteren. It’s almost ten years since his orginal P-51D Mustang plan featured in RCM&E so this modified P-51B Razorback version is long overdue!   

Starting this month’s kit reviews and following on from his recent T25 Cloud Dancer review the next obvious model for Roy Thompson to report on from Dancing Wing Hobby is the catchy named ‘T30 Trainer Airplane’. Yours truly then starts the first in a short series of articles on an attractively priced F5J electric soarer, the Osprey 2.

First position for our feature articles goes, as usual, to Alex Whittaker; this time Alex takes a close look at a large-scale Fournier RF 4 motor glider built by ace show pilot Steve Holland. Alex then rubs shoulders with the contestants at the BMFA Free Flight Indoor Nationals 2022. Finally, concluding his two-part feature on building a Blackburn Beverley, Martin Hardy describes the model’s cargo dropping capabilities before flying his big aeroplane for the first time.
