Some old issues of RCM&E resonate for different reasons. March 1992 hits the spot for me as it reflects the time when I got back into the hobby, thinking it best that I learn how to fly properly, once and for all. For many, twenty years won’t seem so long ago, especially as the letters A, R, T and F had become quite well established. Truth is, kits of this nature actually date back to the early ‘80s, if not before, and while far less common in ‘92, they were certainly around.

Servos are the muscle power in our models. All servos do the same job, they’re sent a signal from the receiver and translate the transmitter stick movement into an equivalent action at their output arm. This motion is used to drive any number of functions, from a control surface to retracting undercarriage. CONSTRUCTION Servos generally consist of the following main parts held within their black plastic case.

On the cover. . . There's nothing quite like a relaxed club fly-in, especially if, as Alex Whittaker found when visiting the Bardney Club, you're blessed with good weather and a welcoming atmosphere.

I often found myself in awe at the occasionally outrageous colour schemes adopted by the more flamboyant pilots of the German Air Force during W. W. I. Such aircraft (Pfalz, Fokker and Albatros, to name but a few) were seen in many different colours, individually painted to their pilots’ requirements, and can be found documented in the many publications that adorn the shelves of aviation bookshops and, of course, in abundance on the internet.

1. Most standard servos come with a set of four rubber grommets, brass ferrules and fixing screws. Also included is a selection of different output arms that can be changed to suit your model’s installation requirements. 2.

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.

This month we’re going to put some flesh on the bones by designing the fuselage, wings and tailplane. THE FUSELAGE BOX The first thing to do is draw the outline of the fuselage box. The front of the box will be F1, and the top will be on the horizontal datum line. The rear of the box should be set a little behind the elevator hinge line, though this point can vary from a 1/4” behind the hinge line (leaving just enough room for the elevator joiner in front of the rudder hinge) to somewhere beyond the end of the elevators.

ON THE COVER They've had the ARTF treatment before, notably by Great Planes and Hangar 9 themselves, and the RV series of home- built aircraft always seem to suit the model format. Hangar 9 have returned to the Vans stable and selected the RV-4 as the basis for an attractive, large-scale release that's reviewed this month starting on page 110.
