RCM&E's all-new October 2013 issue goes on sale 23 August and is arriving with subscribers already. This month's free plan is Lindsay Todd's wonderful 48" span Skywriter bipe!

ON THE COVER
Composite ARF’s 110” span Corsair hitched to Moki’s 5-cylinder radial is a combination we’ll never tire of seeing and two of them make a very special display. At Cosford (page 12) we got both and what a gorgeous sight (and sound) it was. Dave Pearson and Trevor Woods were the pilots and no.17 is Dave’s version.
