Top competition pilot, Keith Jackson sets about keeping us better informed of developments with pattern style model aircraft.

This is Keith's column from RCM&E March 2021, which we will be presenting in two parts.

Coming soon in RCM&E is a review of this neat 750mm wingspan EDF jet modelled on the USAF training aircraft. Powered by a 12-blade 64mm fan unit, the Hawk has fixed gear for operation from typical club grass strips and suits 4S Lipos (2600mAh recommended). It is supplied with five 9g digital servos.

Arnaldo Correia electrifies Keil Kraft’s vintage towline glider.

The Invader was one of six Keil Kraft kits recently chosen for re-release by Ripmax. During my (mis-spent) youth I flew free-flight gliders with long, slender fuselages and was always fascinated by the vintage, full fuselage gliders of yore.

Each time you assemble your favourite ARTF it's a good idea to check for wear and tear on the servo leads, especially where the wires crimp into the plug.

If the wires are starting to break, then it's time to replace the whole plug. You could make new crimps but it's easier to solder on a fresh plug

Shaun Garrity offers up a few ideas for adding simple but effective effects to your latest scale creations

A modelling pal of mine Ken had a simple philosophy regarding the art of scale detailing model aircraft. His planes always looked realistic, yet he took an uncomplicated approach to achieve great results.

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.

Nigel Cartwright describes his own-design turbine helicopter

Not one for off-the-shelf models, I do enjoy building and flying the quirky and unusual. My background is in industrial modelmaking, engineering prototyping and the like, and in recent years I’ve been getting more into 2D and 3D CAD, as well as 3D printing. If I can, I’ll make a part rather than buy it!

It's been a while since we lasted posted a video, so we are going to try have a concerted effort to post some short films on a more regular basis. Nothing fancy, just showing what we've been up to.
