Intro

Do you ever wake up in the morning and think to yourself ‘Self, I have a need. A deep down, burning in my bones need, a need that can only be fulfilled by one thing. Speed. A need for speed.” If you have ever felt that desire or want something that will make your thumbs tremble in fear, I have found the plane for you!

I took a chance one night when I was browsing Motion RC and saw a sweet little Pylon Racer on their website. The Moray was only $99 and came as a Plug-n-Fly. It was just cheap enough for me to take the plunge without knowing anything about it. Fortunately I did some quick research and found that it was highly recommended to also buy an odd shaped 4S 1600mah battery for the plane. In preparation I purchased two.

Hobby King Durafly MK 24 Spitfire Review Print E-mail
Wednesday, 04 September 2013 23:40


History

The final Spitfire variant, the Mk 24, was similar to the Mk 22 except that it had an increased fuel capacity over its predecessors, with two fuel tanks of 33 gal (150 l) each installed in the rear fuselage. There were also zero-point fittings for rocket projectiles under the wings. All had the larger "Spiteful" tail units: modifications were also made to the trim tab gearings in order to perfect the F Mk 24's handling characteristics. The F Mk 24 achieved a maximum speed of 454 mph (731 km/h), and could reach an altitude of 30,000 ft (9,100 m) in eight minutes, putting it on a par with the most advanced piston-engined fighters of the era. Rated at 2,050 hp (1,530 kW), the 12-cylinder Vee liquid cooled Griffon 61 engine featured a two-stage supercharger, giving the Spitfire the exceptional performance at high altitude that had been sometimes lacking in early marks.

Hobby King Durafly Limited Edition D.H. 100 Vampire Review Print E-mail
Wednesday, 12 June 2013 19:54


History

The de Havilland DH.100 Vampire was a British jet fighter commissioned by the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. Following the Gloster Meteor, it was the second jet fighter to enter service with the RAF. Although it arrived too late to see combat during the war, the Vampire served with front line RAF squadrons until 1953 and continued in use as a trainer until 1966, although generally the RAF relegated the Vampire to advanced training roles in the mid-1950s and the type was generally out of RAF service by the end of the decade. The Vampire also served with many air forces worldwide, setting aviation firsts and records. The D.H. 100 supports a crew of one and is powered by a de Havilland Goblin 3 centrifugal turbojet that is capable of pushing the Vampire to 548mph with a service ceiling of 42,800 feet.

The World Models AT-6 Texan Review Print E-mail
Monday, 01 July 2013 22:37

History

The North American Aviation T-6 Texan was a single-engine advanced trainer aircraft used to train pilots of the United States Army Air Forces, United States Navy, Royal Air Force and other air forces of the British Commonwealth during World War II and into the 1950s. Designed by North American Aviation, the T-6 is known by a variety of designations depending on the model and operating air force. The USAAC and USAAF designated it as the AT-6, the United States Navy the SNJ, and British Commonwealth air forces, the Harvard, the name it is best known by outside of the US. After 1962, US forces designated it the T-6. It remains a popular warbird aircraft used for airshow demonstrations and static displays. The Texan supports a crew of two (student and instructor) and is powered by a Pratt & Whitney R-1340-AN-1 Wasp radial engine that propels the plane to 208 mph.

Parkzone FW-190a-8 BnF Basic Review Print E-mail
Monday, 10 June 2013 21:57


History

The Fw 190 A-8 entered production in February 1944, powered either by the standard BMW 801 D-2 or the 801Q. The 801Q/TU, with the "T" signifying a Triebwerksanlage unitized powerplant installation, was a standard 801D with improved, thicker armour on the front annular cowling, which also incorporated the oil tank, upgraded from 6 mm (.24 in) on earlier models to 10 mm (.39 in). Changes introduced in the Fw 190 A-8 also included the C3-injection Erhöhte Notleistung emergency boost system to the fighter variant of the Fw 190 A, raising power to (1,953 hp, 1,456 kW) for a short time. The Erhöhte Notleistung system operated by spraying additional fuel into the fuel/air mix, cooling it and allowing higher boost pressures to be run, but at the cost of much higher fuel consumption. A new outwardly bulged main canopy glazing format, more in the manner of a Malcolm hood rather than a bubble canopy, with greatly improved vision sideways and forward. The new canopy included a larger piece of head armour which was supported by reinforced bracing and a large fairing. This fuselage would form the basis for all later variants of the Fw 190 and the Ta 152 series. The A-8 was the most numerous of the Fw 190-As, with over 6,655 A-8 airframes produced from March 1944 to May 1945.
