Steve Carr flying his Pilot-RC 55% Yak-54. Steve's got a real hang of this model now. Not a lot he can't do with it...including hanging it on the prop at 2 feet off the deck!  Filmed in UltraHD / 4K !

Seems a trend has started at RC shows this year with turbine jets and warbirds flying in the same slot. I think the pilots like the challenge of trying to fly them in formation despite the massive difference in power and flying style. Filmed at the Large Model Association Cosford Show.

Post HUGE 50% scale/6.5m RC KLEMM KL 25 with VALACH 420cc radial engine [UltraHD / 4K] 
John Greenfield (Ghost Squadron) built this half scale Klemm KL 25 from plans of the actual full size aircraft. He also used the same materials in its construction and chose the Valach 420cc 5 cylinder radial engine (VM R5-420). An engine more powerful than the engines used in the full size aircraft!

This model has a wingspan of 6.5 metres and length of 3.8 metres.
The weight is 57 KG.

Filmed at the Large Model Association (LMA) Cosford Show 2017.

Superb scratch built MiG-29 powered by two micro gas turbine jet engines each with 170 newtons of thrust. It looks especially menacing against the grey skies at RAF Cosford.

Post Giant 1:3 scale Spitfire at RAF Cosford, UK 
The ultimate tribute to Spitfire. A replica at 1:3 scale of the full size. Just as awesome to watch flying over the menacing skies of RAF Cosford. Scratch built and powered by a DA150.

Post Giant XXL PIPER J-3 CUB radio controlled American light aircraft 
1:3 scale Piper J-3 Cub flown at the Large Model Association Show at RAF Cosford. Scratch built and without the context of the owner in the background you would think it was the real full size aircraft. Amazing.

Post Twin Engined Agentine Pucará Ground-Attacker 
Always great to see scale models of full size aircraft I've not seen before. This scratch built Agentine FMA IA 58 Pucará being a twin was especially interesting. Considering the weather it flew really well.

Post NEW HobbyKing BIXLER 3 Cheap Trainer/FPV platform 
Got my hands on the new version of the Bixler 3 a few weeks back ahead of its launch yesterday (6th December). Minutes to put together. Apparent changes from the original are larger space up front for bigger lipos, so more flight time. Re-designed for FPV. It comes with a pre-assembled ply mount for your FPV gear. Designed with optional flaps. I dropped my RunCam 2 and its docking station onto the nose and it worked well. Great view from my FPV goggles like I was sitting in the cockpit and flying the plane !

Post Essential RC Crash, Burn, Explode, Speed and Thrill Compilation 2017 
It's been a great year for RC. Was difficult deciding what clips to pull into my annual crash and thrill action compilation. Mostly likely I'll make another because there were so many! But here are my best bits. Looking forward to 2018 already.

Post Top 10 Biggest RC Airplanes (UltraHD/4K resolution) 
2017 was a good year for giant scale model aircraft. Travelling around the country to several shows I got the opportunity to film some of these monsters in action. Most of these take several years to build from scratch. Quite amazing engineering achievements. Here are my top 10 in no particular order of preference. What's your favourite?
