The 2Vix2 plan was published in RCM&E November 2006. The plan can be purchased at www. myhobbystore. com.

Fast and furious. . . no, that doesn't describe the model, merely the way this design went from drawing board to RCM&E free plan.

To order the Airbus plan, mouldings and/or CNC wood pack go to myhobbystore. com Given the huge success of the Airbus European Consortium over the last two decades it was only a matter of time before Airbus would challenged the military stranglehold that US manufacturers have on the aviation world with aeroplanes such as the C-130 Hercules, C-17, C-5a and C-141. The A400M is destined to be technologically superior to the Hercules by having a predominantly composite construction, state of the art avionics, enhanced cargo handling systems, a superior power plant, advanced propeller technology, and performance criteria close to that of a turbofan-powered aircraft. The internal design of the A400 has been maximised to permit payloads such as air-to-air refuelling tanks, attack helicopters, armoured combat vehicles, 116 troops, 66 stretchers plus 25 medical staff for medical evacuation, food, civil excavators and dump trucks.

Dave Batchelor describes his modifications whilst building a 98" Vulcan V-bomber to the Tony Nijhuis plan.

Following the demise of my MB339 back in 2016, I was left with (thankfully) a spare Jetcat P100 turbine looking for a home. I could not afford an ARTF model to put it in at the time so the idea of building something came to mind.

Dave Batchelor finishes and flies his 98" Vulcan V-bomber built from the Tony Nijhuis plan.

Running fuel lines and wiring in the fuselage was going to be very untidy as only the holes in the ribs and bulkheads could be used to run them through. Good visibility inside is afforded by the large air intakes so I wanted it to look good inside as well as out.

You can purchase the Apollo plan at www. myhobbystore. com After many years spent flying in Kent, I retired to Dorset and joined the Phoenix MFC, a very friendly and well-organised club. Electric gliding has proved to be pretty popular here, and having competed in many glider events up and down the UK over many years I decided to design a model that fitted the bill for the clubs electric thermal competition.

The Hawk plan was originally published in 2004 and, along with the canopy and intakes, can be purchased atMyHobbyStore. com Now here’s something a little unexpected. . .

Please note that this article was first published over two issues in 2006. The Basic 3D plan,laser/cnc kit parts and a wood completion packcan be purchased at www. myhobbystore. com Designed to satisfy the needs of the up-and-coming 3D flyer, the appearance and construction of this model are completely different to my previously published efforts, which in the main have been semi scale, open-cockpit, golden era type sports aircraft.

First published in 2006, Basic 3D is Mike Keay’s popular, easy-build, aerobatic trainer and 3D aerobat specifically designed to take a budding pilot from basic through to advanced aerobatics. It can be built with a 52” or 58” span according to preference and, although designed for a . 40 - . 53 two-stroke engine, an electric conversion would be easy to accomplish too.

Shaun Garrity updates a plan for a small pusher, jet style model that doubles up as a stiff-wind slope soarer

What has a Jaguar XJ6 (with the roof cut off), a steel pole and Octopussy got to do with this month’s free plan? Back in 1967 Jim Bede and his chief designer Paul Griffin sharpened their pencils and started creating a design for an aircraft that would become the BD-5, also referred to as the Micro.

This plan was first published in 2002 and is available from the RCM&E plans service. PART. 1 To my eyes, Edwardian design has always combined elegance and practicality. Take the Blackburn 1912 monoplane, for instance.

The Bootlace plan can be purchased at MyHobbyStore. com I’ve always had an interest in American racing aircraft, and though I’ve built a few over the years, I’d never tried my hand at a Shoestring. Ironically, given that this classic ‘40s racer was popular with full-size home-builders for its simplicity, there are a number of problems in translating the aircraft’s design into a satisfactory scale model. Eventually, however, I was able to distil the shapes or styling of the original into this sports aerobatic model, the Bootlace.

RCM&E electric flight columnist Nigel Hawes has been busy. His latest design, Can-Doo, is the pull-out plan with RCM&E's Dec 2013 issue that's in the shops 15 Nov! Starting with little more than four sheets of balsa, Can-Doo is a 32" span sport canard that's easy and cheap to build. It requires an inexpensive 200 watt outrunner, 25 amp ESC and 2200 mAh Li-Po battery and uses ailerons and foreplane for control. Clear that building board! .

The Cardsharp plan was first published in 2000 and can be purchased via the RCM&E plans service. Radio controlled model aircraft built from corrugated cardboard are by no means new; In fact, there have been quite a few over the years. My own introduction to this form of construction came with a model called ‘The Craftsman’, a kit manufactured back in the seventies by a firm called ‘Stanley’, as I remember. The model itself spanned 60”, and was a low-wing sports tail dragger; mine was powered by an old favourite Merco 61 and flew superbly, with great aerobatic characteristics (they also did a high wing trainer version, incidentally).
