Adriana Review Adriana Review
By Michael Heer
The Adriana is a thin wing full house electric glider. It is the first plane I have reviewed that has been out for a while and it is somewhat different to be reviewing a plane on which I have seen other people comment. Keeping this review different you are getting three mini reviews on the components that make up the final parts for this quick climbing electric glider.

By George Voss
There are a few companies that I buy products from with out question of their products' quality. Nikon camera equipment is one, and videos from Paul Naton of Radio Carbon Art are another.

Red Herring EPP by LiftWorx Red Herring EPP by LiftWorx
By Keith Award
The first time I saw a Red Herring fly I thought that it looked like a fun glider, and then once I flew my own Red Herring I knew that it was a very fun and versatile glider to fly. Coming in at a bit over 7 ounces, the Red Herring is the lightweight of my quiver and, as such, has some unique flight characteristics and really opens up some fun in light to moderate winds.

Last year, I decided for myself that a hotliner needed to find a home in my fleet, so I bought a Gerasis Jerry and began to build it. Two weeks after starting the Jerry, a local club member informed me of a great deal on an Ariane V6 F5B airframe through ICARE-RC, and the addiction had begun.

Electric Aerotow: Towing Large Scale Sailplanes with Electric Tugs Electric Aerotow: Towing Large Scale Sailplanes with Electric Tugs
By Adam Till
One of the fastest growing areas of model aviation at the moment is scale soaring, or more specifically, scale aerotowing. While I admittedly might be a little biased, I can think of few things more exciting than hooking a beautiful scale masterpiece up behind a powerful towplane, and heading out for a little afternoon soaring.

Dynaflite Bird of Time ARF Sailplane Dynaflite Bird of Time ARF Sailplane
By Editor
Reviewing the Dynaflite Bird of Time was a true time machine experience, taking me back to my childhood where I had a deep appreciation for the graceful bird-like wings adorning many of the Thermic kits that were available at the time. The Bird of time also took me back to my earliest days of R/C flying, when I first "earned my wings" flying pure sailplanes.

Walsall 2003 Report Walsall 2003 Report
By tim hooper
I'm becoming increasingly suspicious that someone in the Greenacres MAC has done some sort of deal with a Higher Authority. Once again the annual Electric Fun Fly at the old Aldridge airfield was blessed with sunny weather right up to the final prize-giving, when a gentle rain commenced and persuaded the last of the fliers to land and start packing up.
