Believe it or not, the F-13 probably represents the high point of technical and commercial innovation in Hugo Junkers’ privately-owned Junkers Flugzeugwerke. Forget all the Ju-somethings of W. W. II, they came after both Hugo’s death in 1935 and the Nazis’ sequestration of the company.

Propeller Selecting the right propeller is essential (and good research vital) to gain maximum efficiency for F3A requirements. Pattern models need to fly at a constant speed no matter which direction they’re travelling. In this respect, a propeller designed specifically for maximum power and down-line braking will help. Power Electric power has come to dominate F3A over the last couple of years.

Formerlyan Orkney Island resident,Martin Harveyis a retireddoctor recently located to north east England. He's a keen builder and flyer and recounts his exploits here on a regular basis. You canchat toMartynby using the forum thread link below. 10/10/2017 - Summertime I could probably cut and paste the opening part of this piece from various previous submissions --- the weather has been good, the weather has been awful, the weather and most events have gone on just about exactly as they have been for years.

2/2/10 - the results are in! Clickhereto see them. The established wisdom is that mode 2 flyers exceed the number of mode 1 flyers by a substantial margin but does that still hold true? Are geographical variations apparent? Is there aNorth/South divide?Are there any mode 3 or 4 flyers out there? We asked everyone to tell us how they flew and the results are now in! Many thanks to forumite Biggles Elder Brother for his fantastic work compiling the figures. . .

We're grateful to Don Woodland who recently lent a copy of this, the first issue of The Amateur Aviator and Aero Model-Maker magazine from April 1912. Although model flying had been reported in some model engineering magazines in the past, the issue here may well be one of the first dedicated model flying publications in the UK. The Pioneer pictured here is Mr TWK Clarke of Kingston, described as one of the 'earliest successful model makers'. He has one of his all-wood heavy monoplanes and is noted as the inventor of the Clarke Flyer - of which many thousands had been sold before other model makers had made a machine that would fly at all.

If you're looking for a good trad' build project then why not consider one of the designs from the growing range of CNCkits from Sarik Hobbies. A CNC pack contains all the CNC and laser-cut items that remove the hard work from a project - ribs, formers and all the other parts aside from sheet and strip. With additional wood packs available for many models, you have everthing you need to start a project. Don't forget to check out the RCM&E plan builder's forum section- there's bound to be someone else building one! The current range includes: Whizzza - Nigel Hawes' classic 42" span easy-build sporster is now available in either i.

We broughtnewsof Tony Nijhus' massive Boeing B-50, one of the largest electric powered models in the world, last year and we'll have Tony's full account of the project in the next (June 2010) issue of RCM&E. Popping down to see him and photograph the model last week, we were joined by a freelance national news reporter so you may see the model appearing in the national press in the not too distant future. Here he is getting some snaps. .

Well, we'd like to extend our sincere apologies to readers who have bought our Special Issue only to find that the plan is incorrect. I should quickly add that the error isn't the fault of designer Tony Nijhuis but occurred in-house when the design was transferred to our system. So what are we doing? Well, any readers who buy the wood packs and/or canopies and cowl will receive or have received a copy of the correct plan with their order. We have printed a coupon in the November issue of the magazine and readers who would like a copy of the plan need just send this in to us.
