Frank Skilbeck offers a club modeller's perspective of a recently purchased four stroke petrol engine

The acquisition of a NGH 38cc four stroke started after a friend gifted me an old part-built Sid King Privateer, a large model low wing trainer from the 1980s designed for up to 38cc engines, and specifically the Zenoah 38cc.

Arrows Hobby has raised its game with the release of this twin electric ducted fan jet. David Ashby straps in. Despite its contemporary appearance the Mikoyan MiG-29 has been around for over 40 years, would you believe, and remains in production.

Alex Whittaker celebrates Indoor F/F scale models and recommends them as possible winter projects

Some of the sweetest model aeroplanes I have ever seen in my life have been indoor free-flight scale models. There is something intensely appealing about their cute size, their accurate but tiny proportions and, most of all, their cleverly judged level of detail.

In his February 2021 'Make It Scale' column Danny Fenton heads for the bright lights and seaside to compete in his first F4C competition.

It is interesting that the models shown in the very first column I wrote in 2012 are all currently seeing activity in one way or another, including my Apache PA-23-150 and my Black Horse Chipmunk. Even my Brian Taylor Mustang has seen progress. But you will have to wait for an update on those projects.

As may be apparent, we've updated our RCM&E magazine website and Model Flying forums. The previous website/forum had reached the end of its life and could no longer be upgraded or kept secure.

The RCM&E website and Model Flying forums are now each on their own dedicated platforms and you can log in and out of each one independently. Here is some useful information for using the new sites.

Alfred Vink relates the story of Aviation Club Leiden's 2019 winter group build.

In November 2019 no one could have known what 2020 had in store for us. In fact, it was business as usual at my local club LLC (Aviation Club Leiden) here in The Netherlands. A club with great history, founded as early as 1936, and still going strong.

Shaun Garrity looks back to early R/C helicopters. This time in Retro Ramblings we have something a little different - retro helicopters. It’s hard to believe it was the early 1970s when I first came across them (I suddenly feel really old). R/C helicopters were actually flying prior to this but they were mostly constructed by pioneering modellers having to figure things out for themselves, because as far as I know no commercial products were available.
