ParkZone S.E.5a WWi BNF

The ParkZone S.E.5A is perfect for flying lazy eights or big loops at scale speed is a pure joy. Now, many modelers think that WWl airplanes should be easy to fly which is not necessarily so but this model is an exception. It has just enough dihedral to be stable. It is not a beginner's trainer but is one of the easiest WWl planes to fly that I have experienced. This plane would make an excellent second plane or bipe trainer.

Nitro Planes Flying Cat 90 R/C Pusher Jet

Nitro Planes Fly Cat 90 is for those like me that want the Jet feel of flying without having to mortgage your lungs to fly turbines. Flying off a grass field posed some problems but the effort to overcome them is well worth. For me, this is not an every day flyer but she'll come out of the hangar whenever I feel the need for an adrenaline rush. Have fun, fly safe.

DJI Flame Wheel F450

I found the Flame Wheel F450 to be quick building, with no issues during the assembly. The combination of the molded components and the central fiberglass plate structure produced a very strong and rigid structure. The included electronics seem to be of high quality, and I had no issues with any of them. The stability of the finished unit is uncanny, and the ability to have a gyro stabilized camera will be of interest to those wanting to try out aerial photography or first person view flying. The computer software installation could be simpler, but once installed, the unit is very easy to program and the default values worked very well.

Great Planes Stinger II ARF

The Stinger II is an absolute blast to fly. This old school aerobatic icon is born again. If high energy aerobatics isn't your thing...well is should be! Fit and finish is excellent, as you would expect from a Great Planes. I had a hoot at the field last week with the Stinger II and look forward to wringing it out again.

Hangar 9’s De Havilland Tiger Moth is a very complete, fine looking, sport-scale ARF with outstanding slow-speed flight characteristics that make it a joy to fly. Its near-perfect scale outline and many realistic details make it pleasing to the eye on the ground and in the air.

Great Planes ElectriFly Gee Bee R-1

The Great Planes Gee Bee R-1 had a smooth feel from take off to landing and was surprisingly stable at low speeds despite the problems of real aircraft. I enjoyed watching the bright white and red racing colors tear through the sky no matter how much room was left between the aircraft and the ground.
