Our full 10-page report from Nuremburg features inthe new April 2009 issue of RCM&E (on sale March 13) but just to whet you appetite here's a supplementary photo report from the vast trade show in Germany. Nuremburg is where the industry meets to showcase new releases for the forthcoming year. Every major distributor/manufacturer is there so sit back and see if anything takes your fancy! It's a vast campus, this is just one small corner and it would probably take several days just to see all theexhibitors. I liked Graupner's new unassuming 62" span Cherokee, a .

We've had some requests from RCM&E readers for a copy of Graham Ashby's aerobatic schedule that he mentioned in March's editorial piece. This is his summer scheme designed to sharpen the fixed-wing flying skills that years of helicopter flying have blunted. We're pleased to report that he's doing very well so far although no. 13 doesn't look safe! .

Just back from Nurmeburg, our cameras have been busy snapping all the new models and equpiment on show. We'll have a full report in the next (Apr) issue but in the meantime here are a few new models to whet your appetite. With bags of character, this new Elektro-Trainer S from Graupner looks like it'll fly better then the training remit demands. Looks good on floats too!

Welcome back, it's 1965 already so let's look at another aeromodelling year through the eyes of RCM&E archive issues. Looking back at 1964, the magazine noted the menace of walkie talkie radios and the growth of proportional control although admitted that we were a few jumps behind the U. S.

A happy Spencer Lisenby recovers Kinetic, his own-design glider after setting the new world Dynamic Soaring speed record at 357mph (John Buxton photo) On April 30th 2008 American Spencer Lisenby Dynamic Soared his own-design 100" span Kinetic glider to a new world record speed of 357mph. Spencer was flying at Weldon hill, Lake Isabella, California in winds exceeding 50mph over the top of the ridge. Earlier in the day he had broken the existing world record of 316mph by pushing the speed up to 333mph before his later flight when fellow soarer Jason Lilly measured the Kinetic at 357mph around the bottom turn of the circuit. DS speeds have been stuck in the low 300's of late while development work has been carried out in conjunction with the manufacturer of the portable radar guns used to measure these slippery gliders.
