Shaun Garrity converts Gordon Whitehead's 24-inch model of the French WW1 single seat sesquiplane fighter, nicknamed the Bébé, to electric power and modern lightweight R/C

The Bébé is my favourite of all WW1 aircraft. Designed by Gustave Delage, this single seat sesquiplane fighter was one of the reasons the Fokker Scourge ended.

The Ohm 8 plan is available via the RCM&E plans service. This article and pull out plan were originally published in RCM&E, May 1964. It is reproduced in its original form, including references to R/C equipment of the time but with minor modifications could be easily fitted with modern mini/micro servos and a . 15 cu.

This P-51 plan was first published in 2005. The plan is available at the RCM&E Plans Service. A couple of years ago Steve and I were flying different models of P-51 Mustangs; both were very adequate in light lift but were rather semi-scale in outline. Both were eventually sold on, and within a very short period of time it became obvious that disposing of ones’ favourite light-lift model was probably a mistake; anyone attending PSS events must have at least one model for light lift conditions, there’s no point in making the journey and then not being able to fly because the wind isn’t blowing hard enough.

RCM&E's March 2013 issue free plan is Richard Harris' superb Panther autogyro - a model many will have seen flying at Greenacres and the Winterton autogyro fly-ins. Those who have will appreciate what a striking machine this is and, once airborne, it's easily within the flying abilities of an intermediate pilot. The plan and pt. 1 of Richard's accompanying article will be followed by pt.

The Piwakawaka plan can be purchased atwww. myhobbystore. com I spent two fantastic months during 2004 touring New Zealand - a country that boasts wonderful scenery and is an aeromodellers dream, with innumerable potential flying fields and slope soaring sites. As an avid modeller for the past 50 years I felt it my duty to seek out fellow soul mates, and whilst in Blenheim on South Island I made contact with the local fliers and enjoyed a couple of sessions with them (purely as a spectator, as they all fly mode 1 and I fly mode 2).

The Push Moth plan is available via the RCM&E plans service. This article and pull out plan was originally published in RCM&E, December 1965. It is reproduced in its original form, including references to R/C equipment of the time. But with minor modifications it could be easily fitted with modern micro servos, an inexpensive electric motor, speed controller and Li-Po battery.

Shaun Garrity returns to the 1980s with the low-wing classic design from David Boddington

The high wing Whisper and low wing Excellence were designed by Dave Boddington in the mid 1980s for the new breed of small four-stroke engines that were starting to appear, specifically the latest O.S. FS-20.

The Pioneer plan can be purchased atwww. myhobbystore. com One of the unsung heroes of British military aviation the Pioneer first flew in 1947. It was designed for RAF support of troops in forward areas.

The Skylark plan was first published in 2003, the plan is available at the RCM&E plans service. It was 12 year-old Matthew Evans who gave me the inspiration for the model presented here. You see, I was asked to help Matthew learn about designing, building and flying a radio controlled aircraft. He had won a grant called the ‘John Cooper Scholarship’ at Wareham Middle School, which helps young students develop ideas that could help them in a future career.

The Sonerai plan is £9. 95 atwww. myhobbystore. com I wanted a model for winter flying, the requirement being that it should fit in the car in one piece, be tough enough for rough-field abuse and be easy to hand-launch by the pilot.

This plan article was first published in 2003 Electric flight technology has advanced rapidly since and it is suggested that builders fit a brushless powertrain or seekset-up advice in the forum The plan, cowl and canopy can be purchased at www. myhobbystore. com Released in March 1945, too late to see action in W.

This article was published to accompany the STOL Mk. 2 plan publication in October 1983. A new CNC kit and wood pack can also be purchased. When the original STOL was designed in 1972 it wasn’t even called a STOL, just 242S – it was really little more than an aeronautical doodle.

This plan and article were first published in 2001, see below for plan details. Ever since the first R/C Dart flew indoors at Olympia in 1995 / 96, there has been considerable interest in it wherever and whenever it goes out to play. Having witnessed the performance of my young lad’s rubber powered BMFA Dart, and being highly impressed, I decided to scale up the design. In fact, it was not just his that caught my eye; it seemed as though (no matter how ham-fisted the builder) they ALL flew well - much to the delight of numerous children.

Based on Gary's original styling, Swamp Rat by Peter Miller is the free plan with RCM&E's August 2013 issue. I was asked by Peter Miller if I would like to convert his Swamp Rat from i. c. to electric and this is what I did and have called it RATATAT.

The SWOT plan is £9. 95 and can be purchasedvia the RCM&E plans service. Ok, you’ve made the decision to start R/C flying and want to get into the air as soon as possible. You have little (if any) modelling experience, family and work responsibilities render you short of time, but you can set some cash aside.
