Night Vapor
With a flying weight of little more than half an ounce, the Ultra
Micro Series Night Vapor from ParkZone just might be the
worlds lightest flying night light. Like the original Vapor, it is
slow enough to fly almost anywhere indoors, but it adds the fun
of bright LED lights that make it possible to fly in the dark. Both
the Ready-to-Fly and Bind-N-Fly version come out of the box
completely assembled with lights installed. All you have to do is
charge the battery and fly.
Morning, noon or night, the
Night Vapor is slow flyer fun
thats hard to beat. Get to

A New Generation
Jake Bottita isnt your average eighth grader. Not only is he an
accomplished RC pilot, but hes also already earned his AMA
turbine waiver and now spends his weekends at various jet events
with his dad, Dave. Just recently, the father and son team
traveled to Lancaster, CA, to attend the Best in the West Jet Rally, where Jake was
thrilled to be able to receive some show-pilot ight instruction by world champion
Ali Machinchy of the UK. Jake must have made quite an impression with the other
jet pilots, because he won Pilots Choice, Best Sport Jet, as well as the rst annual Col.
Robert E. Thacker Award of Excellence. Dave Bottita writes, This is a very high honor,
and we were thrilled that Jake was given this award by his fellow jet pilots. The award
is given to someone who exemplies what the hobby is all about and who has made or
will make signicant contributions to the hobby. We are proud to have this award sitting
on our display case. Although we all
look forward to Jakes future in RC, hes
already an inspiration, and his presence
on the ightline proves that yes, the
younger generation does have the patience,
dedication and sense of responsibility thats
mandatory to y large, fast RC aircraft.
Now thats impressive!
We have an interesting mix of articles
this month, from Futabas new S.Bus system
to customize your planes controls to a
scratch-designed WW I de Havilland Airco
pusher biplane to the hottest new planes
and products that will soon be coming your
way. Ready to take your ying to the next
level? Dont miss Dave Scotts step-by-
step tutorial to mastering the upright

cant recover from the spin before hitting terra rma, Gerry Yarrishs how-to on repairing

Bolt from
the Blue
P-47D Thunderbolt
The P-47D Thunderbolt was a swift, multi-role WWII fighter that was as
much of a menace to ground targets as it was to enemy aircraft. ParkZone
brings the P-47D to life with this great flying scale recreation that offers a
combination of power, speed and stability, similar to that of the full-scale
version. It comes out of the box with details like a simulated radial engine,
molded panel lines and a realistic 404th Fighter Group paint scheme, just
to name a few. Its also the first ParkZone warbird setup to let you easily
add the option of functional flaps and retractable landing gear.
Get to ParkZone.com right now
for complete details on this
outstanding warbird and to find a
retailer near you.

FIRST WARBIRD
U
Your January 2011 cover boasting Rich
Uravitchs T-28 Trojan as a perfect rst war-
bird is right on! I bought your plans for
Richs T-28 when you rst published the
construction article in 2006. I had built
several trainer and sport airplanesmostly
ARFs. I did build a Sig Kadet Senior kit years
before, but it was really just a lot of sticks.
I had never built a wood plane from plans
before. I ordered the plans and then con-
tacted Mr. Uravitch who supplied me with
the laser-cut wood parts and his formed
plastic package. He was very helpful and
I was able to build it in very short order.
I powered it with an old O.S. .32 engine
I had and built it with xed-wire landing
gear. I was pretty impressed with my efforts,
but not as much as when I rst ew it! I
thought I would have my hands full, but
as it turns out, the Trojan is a very stable
yerand its my rst warbird! Thanks for
all your great construction plans and give
my thanks to Mr. Uravitch for his design
talent and great-ying planes.
Geoff Mack, El Paso, TX
Thanks for writing in, Geoff. Our con-
struction library of model airplane plans is

RAZOR-BACK MUSTANG
U
At a recent model club meeting, I men-
tioned that I had seen your review of the
new E-ite P-51B Mustang. A few of my
fellow club members said they could not
nd the article. Can you let us know what
issue it was in? I think it is the best-looking
WW II ghter Ive seen in a very long time.
Thanks for your wonderful magazine.
Timothy Radcliff, email
Timothy, thanks for commenting on
our review of the new P-51B from E-ite.
Actually, this review can be found in our
sister publication Electric Flight (previously t
known as Backyard Flyer). We agree, not to rr
take anything away from the bubble-can-
opy-equipped D-model, the P-51B, speci-
cally, the Shangri-La own by ghter Ace
Major Don Gentile, is one sweet-looking
ghter. This electric-powered classic is
powered by a Power 32 brushless motor on
a 4S 3300mAh battery pack and a 60A Pro
speed control. With a span of 52 inches,
it certainly handles itself respectfully with
its retractable landing gear and functional
aps. The folks at E-ite did a really nice
job on this one for sure. Check out our
test ight footage playing in the Videos
section at ModelAirplaneNews.com Were
hoping theres a nice 30-size Messerschmitt
Bf 109 on the way for some air-to-air
combat! E-ite, are you listening?

Useful hints from modelers
BALANCING BEARING FOR BALANCING JIGS
wo Almost all modelers are familiar with jigs that are made from tw
ge pointed dowels glued in a block of wood. The big disadvantag
side of this jig is that it will almost always leave dents in the unders
ening of the wing. One of the ways you can prevent this from happe
g. is to tape a small square of plywood to the bottom of the wing
e This plywood can be indented with a drill point and then place
that indentation under the CG line on the wing. This indentation that indentation under the CG line on the wing This indentatio
provides a socket/bearing for the dowel point and protection to the
wing. No more dents in the nish!

COOL ENVIRONMENT FOR YOUR BATTERIES
Batteries that are cooled down before they are recharged d will have
less stress and take a better charge. One way to cool the em down
quickly is to make one of these battery pack coolers. Tak ke two six-
pack coolers and glue them together with CA or epoxy. Now they
can t in a Styrofoam cooler where you can place warm LiPo packs
in between the cooler. This cold area will bring the batter ry packs
down to normal temperature in no time. This will make thhem ready
for another charge and ight.
Bobby Corbett, Victorville, CA
TELESCOPIC MEASURING ROD
Lookking for something to do with those old 72 transmitters?
The antennas make great measuring rods for aligning or rigging antennas make great measuring rods for aligning or rigging
new models. They can be used to check the wing or stabilizers
alignment before any epoxy is applied. You can glue a nail into each
end to make it even easier to use and more precise.
Tom Carter, Big Bear City, CA
PUTTING ON THE PRESSURE
Most people know that clothespins can be used as clamps. But
what do you do if you occasionally require a little extra clamping
pressure? You can take and modify the clothespins as shown.
Just add a blind nut secured with a little CA to the pin, then screw
in a cap screw. Now you can just torque down on the cap screw
to force the jaws together and create more clamping pressureit
works great!

The NEW Carbon-Z

Yak 54
Forget what you thought you knew about electric aircraft construction and performance. The
new Carbon-Z Yak 54 is a giant leap in both that takes Bind-N-Fly

aircraft capabilities to a
whole new level. Knife edge loops, hovering torque rolls at half throttle, ballistic uplines no
longer is this kind of performance the privilege of a select few with the time and money to
build large-scale 3D airplanes. The Bind-N-Fly Carbon-Z Yak 54 lets you experience the
same precision and unlimited performance in the time it takes to charge a battery, for
a fraction of the price.
Its all made possible by Carbon-Z construction. Developed by world aerobatic champion
Quique Somenzini, Carbon-Z uses a patent-pending technique to fuse the lightweight durabil-
ity of a molded Z-Foam

structure with the strength and rigidity of carbon ber. The result
is an airframe that is as strong as or stronger than
balsa with an exterior that looks great in all tem-
peratures and weather. This advanced airframe,
combined with the custom brushless power system
Quique developed for it, gives the Carbon-Z Yak 54
a stunning thrust-to-weight ratio of 2:1 and 3D
performance that knows no limits.

UNIQUE FEATURES
The BH Models Stuka is covered in a
unique printed covering that shows off
the Stukas scale panel lines, camouage
paint and the German insignia markings
of that time. The Stuka was designed to be
powered by a 1.20 4-stroke or by an elec-
tric power (EP). A convenient hatch on the
bottom of the Stuka allows for easy access
to the wing bolts, radio gear and/or a pos-
sible battery tray for the EP system. Inside
the hatch, the elevator and rudder push-
rods are already installed and awaiting
FLIGHTTEST
I really enjoyed ying the BH Models Stuka at the dry lakebed near my home. I
recommend that you start out on a runway that is at least 300 feet long until you are
comfortable ying the Stuka. Its big main wheels, oleo struts and sprung tailwheel
really help to soak up any bumps in the runway. With the application of up-elevator
to hold down the tailwheel, the Stuka will gracefully taxi out to the runway. To
counter torque-steer, a little application of right-rudder is needed to keep the Stuka
tracking straight down the runway. The Stuka is ready to break ground in about 50-
75 feet. The Stuka showed no tendency to nose-over during takeoff. Upon landing,
keep the Stukas speed up and y it under power onto its main wheels and then cut
the throttle. Remember to steer with the rudder and use the elevator to keep the
Stuka level until the tailwheel wants to settle to the runway. Deploying the Stukas
aps will improve its slow-speed stability when landing.
GENERAL FLIGHT PERFORMANCE
Stability: The Stuka is as easy to y as any .60-size trainer is. One of my favorite
moves from a high altitude is to cut the throttle back to a third, deploy the aps, and
then push the nose down into a steep dive. The Stuka appears to hang in the sky
as I make an imaginary dive-bombing run on my target.
Tracking: Once trimmed, the Stuka ew hands off from horizon to horizon. Be sure
to use a touch of rudder, coordinated with the ailerons, to make your turns look
better.
Aerobatics: The Stuka will perform basic aerobatics. Low high-speed passes look
very realistic and the Magnum 1.20 4-stroke sounds great.
Glide and Stall Performance: The Stuka glides very well, despite the amount of
drag on it. The Stuka will quickly fall off on a wing if too much forward speed is lost.
However, the Stuka is easy to recover from the stall as long as there is adequate
altitude.
PILOT DEBRIEFING
The BH Models Stukas overall ight characteristics are outstanding. It would make
an excellent Sunday yer and be a great introduction to warbirds for the intermediate
yer. I am very pleased with the Stuka and look forward to many more bombing
missions with it.

BH MODELS JU-87B B STUKA ARF 120FS/EP
Screaming Death
from Above
The Ju-87B Stuka (Sturzkampfugzeug,
or dive-bomber) epitomized the
technological terror of the Blitzkrieg
early in World War II. As an added
psychological weapon, crews attached
sirens called the Trumpets of Jericho
to the landing gear fairings. The sirens
would make a high-pitched screaming
noise as the Stuka dove down at 324mph
to destroy its target. An automatic
bombing system was developed, to aid
the pilot in the bombing run. The pilot
would set his chosen altitude for bomb
release/pull-out, normally 900 meters.
Then, when he opened the dive brakes,
the automatic system adjusted the
elevator trim tabs and started the dive.
The pilot manually ne-tuned the dive
angle (often 90 degrees!) by reference
to his visual horizon. At bomb release,
the automatic controls would once
again adjust the elevator trim tabs and
the Stuka would pull out of the dive and
level out at approximately 450 meters.
This automatic system was a lifesaver
to the Stukas crew as they would briey
blackout during the pullout due to the
high G-Force imposed on them. The
Ju-87 was rst produced in 1937 and
production ended at the end of World
War II. There were an estimated 6,500 Ju
87s of all versions built between 1936 and
August 1944.
The scale split aps not only add realism, but they are also
functional.
It would be very easy to make this a working scale drop tank.
your servos. A well-made painted cowl is
included in the kit. Its grille will need to be
trimmed a little to clear the cooling ns on
the Magnum 1.20 4-stroke. In addition, its
portside needed to be trimmed to clear the
mufer. To ensure a smooth reliable idle, I
installed a Ram on-board igniter to re the
Magnum 4-strokes glow plug. I installed
the Rams indicator light on the rewall.
From the front of the Stuka, the light is
easy to see when you look through the air
intake hole in the top of the cowl. A qual-
ity two-piece aluminum and plastic spin-
ner nish off the front of the Stuka. Each
individual aileron and ap control surface
is operated by a servo under a hatch in the
wing. The Stukas wings are fastened to
the fuselage by an aluminum spar and two
plastic wing bolts. The Stukas main land-
ing gear is functional oleo struts that are
housed in a plastic molded fairing. The
steerable tailwheel is a well-made spring
suspension piece that is connected to
the rudder by a control rod. There are 14

painted formed plastic pieces to trim and
attach to the Stuka. All the parts are of good
quality, t well, and really make the Stuka
stand out from all the other manufacturers
ARFs. All of the hardware included in the
kit is metric and of very good quality and
except for the wing servo hatches and the
servo trays, everything is predrilled, cut out
and aligned for you. Wherever a screw or
bolt has to be placed is already drilled and
the covering cut away where needed.
CONCLUSION
The Ju-87B Stuka was an absolute pleasure
to assemble and y. In less than 10 hours,
I had an masterpiece that I could not wait
to y. At the eld, I was ready to y the
Stuka in under 10 minutes. The hatch in
the bottom of the Stuka allows complete
and easy access to the models wing bolts
and aileron/ap extensions. The Stuka is an
eye catcher and draws many positive com-
ments. This plane is also very easy to track
in the sky. Once again, BH Model has pro-
duced a beautiful, quality airplane that Im
proud to own. The Stuka is truly an excel-
lent value for any warbird enthusiast.

Enjoy the good life.


You can begin fying in less than an hour. The luxurious looks are already there, from the
detailed interior and authentic trim to working LEDs. So is the ease: servos and a powerful
brushless motor and ESC combo are already installedand the working faps are ready to go. brushless motor and ESC combo are already installed and the working faps are ready to go

TEXT AND PHOTOS BY GERRY YARRISH Y
THE GREAT THING ABOUT almost-ready-to-
y airplanes is that most come with great-
looking berglass engine cowls that t
perfectly and often arrive from the factory
already painted. Almost all of these cowls
are held in place with screws, which makes
assembly quick and simple. As you build
up ight time however, engine vibration
and everyday knocks and dings take their
toll and that once shiny new engine cowl
will start to show its age. Of course, if one is
available, you could simply replace it with
a new one, but that will cost at least 20
bucks, not including shipping. A great way
to save that cash and apply it to something
you really need (like a gallon of fuel or a
new servo), is to repair your
old cowl yourself. Heres how
I did it for my Hangar 9 Piper
Pawnee crop-duster ARF.
Here are some of the basic
tools and materials youll
need to x a cracked and
worn-out engine cowl. Youll
need berglass cloth, Z-poxy
Finishing resin, mixing
cups and mixing sticks, mask-
ing tape, sandpaper, and a
Dremel Moto-Tool with some
Robart medium or coarse grit
grinding bits. Youll also need
some tack cloths, a bottle of spray cleaner,
acetone or MEK solvent, denatured or
rubbing alcohol and some paper towels. I
would also advise a clean place to work and
that it helps to place some old newspaper
or brown wrapping paper to protect your
work surface.
Acetone and MEK
solvent can be used
to really clean the
cowl. See text for
other supplies youll
need.

1
Start by carefully removing the old
engine cowl from your airplane. If
some cracked or broken cowl parts fall
away, be sure to save them. Set the rest
of the model aside so you dont get any
epoxy resin or paint on your model or the
engine.
3
For some damage that happens from
vibration and metal parts rubbing
against the berglass (such as mufers),
the best way to repair and prevent the
damage from spreading is to simply use
a grinding bit or cutoff wheel and enlarge
the opening by removing the damaged
portion. You can see this damage easily
with its fractured gel coat and black
grease deeply embedded in the edges of
the berglass.
4
After you degrease the area, use
a ne-tip felt pen and mark the
material youll remove. Slowly grind away
the material up to the pen mark and then
use some 220-grit sandpaper and smooth
the edges of the opening so there are no
more sharp edges to encourage further
cracking. You can leave the edges as is,
or you can lightly spray with a primer and
then shoot a coat of matching color paint
to seal the edges. This will help minimize
future grime and oil from embedding
itself into the berglass.
2
Thoroughly clean the engine cowl
using some spray cleaner inside and
out. To really degrease the surface of a
very old and greasy berglass cowl, use
Acetone or MEK solvent. Use a paper
towel and wipe the cowl down, then go
over it again with the solvent to really get
the oil and grime removed. If you dont
start with a squeaky-clean surface, your
repair wont adhere properly.
Inspect the cowl and identify any cracks
and damage you want to x. The rst
thing you should do whenever you nd a
crack is to stop-drill it to prevent it from
spreading. Cracks are formed by stress
and stress in a material always looks
for the path of least resistance. Sharp
corners and jagged holes and cutouts in
cowls are where they pop up. When there
is a sharp angle in an edge, it causes a
stress riser that concentrates the forces
until a crack forms. When you drill a hole
at the end of a crack, you slow down its
progression by spreading out the area the
stress is acting on. So, whenever you see
a crack, repair it as soon as possible so it
wont spread.
5
For holes that have cracked out to an
edge, like where there attachment
screws hold the cowl, you should use a
cutoff wheel and lightly remove the very
edges of the crack to expose new, clean
material. On the inside surface, use a
grinding wheel to remove a thin portion of
the berglass and then go over the area
with some 220-grit sandpaper to expose
clean material to which the repair can
stick.
6
On the outer surface of the cowl,
mask the repair area off with tape so
you can protect the undamaged nish.
Use 220-grit sandpaper and go over the
repair area and expose fresh gel coat and
berglass. Wipe the inside and outside
of the repair area with a tack cloth to
get all the ground-up berglass powder
removed.
7
Take some berglass cloth, roll it up
and then with a sharp pair of scissors
cut it into shreds. Do this over some
paper to catch the material and cut the
cloth over and over again until you end up
with very ne shards of berglass. This
will be used as a thickening material and
will be mixed into the epoxy resin.

10
Apply a small glob of resin/ller
mixture on the outside of the cowl
repair area. Make sure to get the mixture
to ow into the hole and crack. Keep the
amount of ller on the outside surface
to a minimum. Now, turn the cowl over
and place it on top of one of the backing
strips. Use a weight to hold the cowl
down snugly over the backing strip and
apply more ller material over the inner
repair area.
13
Cut three or four patches of
medium-weight woven cloth into
square patches. They should be an inch
all around larger than the repair area.
Mix up some more resin and apply the
patches over the repair. Apply the patch
material to both the inside and outside
of the engine cowl, cover both sides with
the release plastic and squeegee out the
resin to make a smooth ow of resin. Set
aside to set up.
14
When the resin has cured, remove
the release sheet and trim the
repair material ush with the edge of the
cowling. While the repair material is not
fully set up it, can be cut easily with a
sharp hobby knife. Cut away the access
material and then let it cure fully before
you sand the surface and edge smooth
with sandpaper.
11
Place the second backing strip over
the repair and press down rmly to
spread the mixture out. Place the weight
on top of the strip and set aside until
the repair mixture has set. (Depending
on your brand of resin, it should take 30
minutes to one hour.)
15
Now to make the repair literally
disappear, sand the resin and
feather it out to the surrounding surface.
Use some model ller to ll any pinholes
or defects and sand smooth. Mask off
the cowl again and hit with a couple of
light coats of sandable primer and let
dry. Repeat the process until the surface
is smooth and defect-free. Spray the
area with a couple light coats of paint to
match the engine cowls color. Let dry.
16
Reinstall the engine cowl on the
model and mark the location for
the attachment hole. Remove from the
model, drill a pilot hole and then slowly
enlarge the hole by using larger and
larger drill bits until it is the proper size.
Lightly sand the hole to smooth the edges
and if you like, add a light clear coat to
add an additional layer of protection.
I hope this how-to technique helps
you to enjoy the hobby a little more while
saving a little coinand who doesnt
want to do that? So, what are you waiting
for? Go and take out your newly repaired
airplane and do some ying!

12
Heres what the repair looks
like after the backing strips are
removedbut youre not done yet!
8
Place the berglass shards in a
mixing cut and slowly add the
nishing resin till you have a 50/50
mixture of resin (both parts A & B) and
the ller material. Use a mixing stick
and really combine the mixture until it is
slightly stiff and strings when you lift
the stick from the mixture.
9
To make the repair really smooth,
make two backer sheets from balsa
wrapped with some MonoKote clear
backing, or Great Planes Plans Protector
sheeting. Use some tape to hold it in
place around the balsa sheets.

95-page instruction manual recommends
that this plane is intended for intermedi-
ate to advanced pilots.
UNIQUE FEATURES
The Cessna 195 ARF QBs long list of
unique features sets this model apart from
the run-of-the-mill ARF. To begin, all con-
trol surfaces are covered in a hard corru-
gated plastic that simulates the look of
the full-size aircraft control surfaces. Flaps
and the ailerons are fully installed to the
wing halves. The same scale detail is on
FLIGHTTEST
The Cessna 195 can be own from a large grass eld but is more at home on a
paved runway. The plane takes off easily at
1

1
2 throttle and tracks straight with very
little rudder input. Landing with full aps is slow and predictable, with no tendency
to tip-stall. Keeping the throttle a little above idle provides excellent control. If youre
taxiing on a rough surface, be sure to use a little up-elevator to prevent a nose-over.
Keeping the rudder on low rates will also prevent over-correcting during taxi.
GENERAL FLIGHT PERFORMANCE
Stability: When in the air, the Cessna 195 goes where you point it. The wing has very
little dihedral built in, so the plane does not right itself like a trainer.
Tracking: It tracks straight without any noticeable tendency to wander. It will
maintain the course until input is applied to the sticks for a course change.
Aerobatics: The Cessna 195 is capable of loops, rolls, stall turns and inverted ight,
but because of its scale appearance, it just doesnt look like its supposed to be
doing them. The Cessna requires rudder coordination to make turns efciently.
Glide and stall performance: Stalls are mild and straight ahead. The recommended
half-ap setting slows the plane considerably without adversely affecting the ight
characteristics. Low and slow y-bys are a cinch with this plane!
PILOT DEBRIEFING
After reading a few ight reviews on the full-size Cessna 195, its easy to say that
the Aeroworks version ies better than the real thing. This makes the AeroWorks
Cessna 195 a great choice for a rst- or second-time scale pilot endeavor. But just
because it doesnt y like the full-size plane does not mean you cant y it in a scale-
like manner; you can, and it is easy to do. More experienced aerobatic pilots should
not bother with the low rates except on the rudder while taxiing. Less experienced
pilots (stick yankers) will appreciate the low rates because the slower response
times make ight maneuvers look more scale, smoothing out over-control. The only
recommendation I suggest for the Cessna 195 is the addition of at least 20% aileron
rudder mixing.

the rudder and elevator, but the hinges will
need to be installed, allowing easier align-
ment of the tail. All the control horns for
the tail surfaces are neatly hidden in the tail
cone. The only exposed control linkages on
the Cessna are high-quality ball links and
metal control horns on the bottom sides of
the ailerons and aps.
Another interesting feature is the LED
navigation lights are installed and wired. A
beacon light is available for purchase from
AeroWorks. A wiring harness for the lights
comes standard in the kit.
There is no guesswork to mounting any of
the berglass components on the Cessna.
The pre-drilled tail cone is mounted on ply-
wood tabs built into the rear of the fuselage
using wood screws. Wheel pants have ply-
wood backing plates and blind nuts already
installed. The cowling has a plywood

mounting ring with notched mounting
lugs built in. Mounting the cowling is as
simple as screwing it to the fuselage. The
only modication to the cowling required
was the cutout for my DLE-30 gas engine.
AeroWorks was very accommodating to
different engine types in the design of this
kit. Instructions are included for 2-stroke
glow, 4-stroke glow and 2-stroke gas
engines. The DLE-30 shown in the instruc-
tions seemed to be the option for me. The
aluminum standoffs supplied with the new
engine, in combination with the thrust-
angle shims for the glow engine, provided
the correct engine placement.
Installation of the radio gear was straight-
forward. I used my Spektrum DX7 2.4GHz
system with heavy-duty switches. Servos
chosen were based on torque recommen-
dations in the instructions. Setting up
the control throws per the instructions
is breeze because AeroWorks includes a
custom throw meter in the kit.
Balancing was made easy on this
15-pound plane because of the innovative
CG Buddy that was included. Two plywood
saddles t between the wings, and the
fuselage with lift points at the desired CG
location. A carbon rod with rope attached
to the lift points makes balancing safe and
effective. Balancing the Cessna required 5
ounces of lead to be glued inside the ber-
glass tail cone.
CONCLUSION
AeroWorks has done an amazing job
of reproducing the classic lines of the
radial-engine Cessna 195. Intermediate to
advanced modelers should expect to spend
between 20 and 30 hours installing radio
gear and performing the assembly steps.
Although I was disappointed to learn the

Split Flap
What should you expect when you
actuate a split ap? While setting up
the radio program for the AeroWorks
Cessna 195, it occurred to me that I
didnt have a bit of experience using
split aps. Having experience with
fowler aps and aperons, my pilots
intuition suggested that the model
would probably pitch down slightly.
To test my theory, I set up my radio
to mix in about 2 degrees up-elevator
when aps were 50% deployed and
about 5 degrees up-elevator mix at
full deployment. Then it was time
to go to the eld and see how good
my estimates really were. At three
mistakes high, I reduced the throttle
to slightly above idle and deployed
the aps 50%. The plane slowed
signicantly but did not pitch up or
down. I moved the throttle to the
halfway point and did not notice
any ballooning. The setup for 50%
ap seemed appropriate. I reduced
throttle again and deployed full aps
and found that 5-degrees-up mixing
was way too much. I had to hold
down elevator to keep the plane from
pitching up. Reducing the mix to 3
degrees corrected the problem. Split
aps seem to cause considerably less
pitch sensitivity than Fowler aps and
require less elevator compensation.
Just remember, if you dont know
what your plane will do, test things
out in small increments three mistakes
high!
DLE-30 side carb engine was discontinued,
I am extremely happy with kit. The modi-
cations required for mounting the rear carb
DLE-30 engine were minor and only added
a few hours to the assembly time. The over-
all kit quality was topnotch.

The two-piece wing and carbon wing tube make transporting


this large plane easier.
Minor modication to the engine mounting and rewall were
required to use the rear carb DLE-30.

plan on attending the War-

event is usually scheduled
SS
when the ying weather
SS
gorgeous. Although lots of
SS
sented, its not a contest
SShigh-pressure atmosphere SS
is nowhere to be found. Its replaced by a
laid-back, relaxed environment, more like
a well-attended y in with a military
hardware theme.
Now in its seventh year, WOTR is the
brainchild of longtime scale competitor,
Brian OMeara, assisted by his lovely wife
and hobby-mate Bonnie, plus a whole
host of behind-the-scenes workers, most
from the Love-Air R/C host club who do a
fabulous job making everything happen. I
attend a fair number of events throughout
the year, each of which has a number of
standout models that just embed them-
selves in my memory and WOTR is no
exception.
ATTENTION GETTERS
Among the memorable was just one of the
eet brought by Evan Quirosan incred-
ibly well-done Dornier Do-335 Pfeil
(Arrow). IThe design, the nish, colors and
the unique propulsion system, which con-
sisted of a 3W 80cc gas engine up front and
a shaft-driven Zenoah G-45 in the back to
do the pushing. After a sporty takeoff
and at least three remarkable recoveries,
Evan got the model sorted out and ew it
in a smooth, very convincing manner.
Another attention-getter was the Vickers
Vernon built and own by Dave Morales.
This military meet has something for everyone!

Could it be a B-17G on its way to
Berlin, creating contrails in the thin,
cold air at high altitude? Or is it Bret
Bowlings Ol 909? This was one of two
Fortresses Bret brought to the event.
One of the more unique and obscure subjects on hand was the Vickers Vernon
belonging to Dave Morales. This behemoth weighs 65 pounds, has a 14 foot span and
is powered by a pair of Evolution 35cc gas engines.
Eduardo and Ana Estaves getting their Moki radial-powered P-47 Miss Plaineld ready
for another mission while Scott Stauffer of SKS Video prepares to capture the action.
This 14-foot behemoth was certainly the
most unusual, unique and unidentiable
model in attendance! Weighing in at 65
pounds, the twin Evolution 35s pulled it
along in a very scale-like fashion. Ive been
around airplanes in some capacity all my
life and although I recognize aero-obscu-
ria like the Vickers Vimy, I had never even
heard of the Vernon! d
Brit Phil Clark accompanied his brand-
new Martin B-26 Marauder Flak Bait from t
across the pond to debut at the event. After
a couple of days of setup and tinkering, it
seemed ready for the test hop on the nal
Along with a B-29 used in the Atomic Bomb drop recreation, Tim Johnson also ew a
scratch-built F-82 Twin Mustang. It had a 115-inch span, weighed 39 pounds and was

day of the event and I did watch it during
the high-speed taxi runs with Dino DiGior-
gio handling the chores. I understand that
it didnt actually y at the meet, but what
I saw told me it was very ready. It is truly
a spectacular effort and word is that it will
remain in the States for much of its ying
schedule.
Merlyn Graves, always one to come up
with a spectacular project, didnt disap-
point. His very large (23%) Grumman F6F
Hellcat was scratch-built from an enlarged
Jerry Bates plan and it was nished in an
unique Royal Navy scheme, far more attrac-
tive, in my opinion, than the typical three-
tone blue or overall dark blue U.S. Navy
colors. It appeared to y very well; a takeoff
Its gonna happen
If you y RC models long enough, you are going
to have some incidents. Whether you call them
accidents, heavy arrivals, sporty departures, or just
plain crashes, they are inevitable. The ones that
occur early in your RC career can be explained
more easilylearning curve, unfamiliarity
newcomers do it all the time. If you have the
staying power, interest and yes, resources, to
gain the condence to y at a large meet like
Warbirds Over the Rockies, those incidents
are far less numerous, and usually with longer
spaces between them. Greater experience will
not, however, prevent them from disappearing
completely. Even the big boys have bad days
that occasionally force them back into the
workshop for some modication (read: repair) to
their moderately damaged ying machines. New
guysit happens to all of us from time to time.
Experienced guysget in some more practice
ying and spend more time in the preparation! And
dont poke fun at these pictures, YOUR turn may
be next!
Warbirds Over the Rockies
These guys were beating
up the aerodrome all the
time! Lyle Vasser and Steve
Forrest came in from Olathe,
KS to y escort missions
with their P-51 Mustangs.
Theyve been ying together
a lot and it was obvious!
Ten years in the making, Phil Clarks B-26 Marauder Flak Bait,

6 scale, yields a 12 foot span and
weighs 78 pounds. The nose section of the actual airframe is on
display in the National Air and Space Museum.
Remember the old Dynaite D.H. Chipmunk kit? Remember kits?
Michael Morgan chose Portuguese aerobatic team markings for
his rendition. It has an 89-inch span, is powered by a Zenoah G38
and nished with Walmart paint!

Details, details, details
I mentioned earlier that this meet was not a contest but a fun,
get-together meet. After looking at nearly all the models on hand,
there was no doubt in my mind that a lot of them could easily
compete in the best of scale contests. Some examples of some
beautifully built and detailed models were the L-19 Bird Dog
built and own by Scott Davis. The surface detail was crisp and
well executed and the big machine was tted with all the correct
equipment of the L-19/O-1s used in Southeast Asia during the
1960s and 1970s. Willy Pete rocket canisters slung under the
wings along with canvas-covered survival bags completed the
warbird avor. At the other end of the type spectrum was the
A-10A brought by Egil Wigert. Built from the Slovenian Mibo kit,
this all-composite, twin-turbined jet featured a fully detailed cockpit
with a scale pilot gure whose head turned, very realistic gear
struts and all the appropriate markings.
Another one that caught my eye was the AC-47 gunship that
was complete with mini gun and loudspeaker installation on the
L.H. side, clearly visible through the windows and open cargo door.

The cockpit of the A-10A from the Slovenian MIBO kit, built
by Egil Wigert. The level of detail is amazing and might be
considered ARI(Almost Ready for Installation), as most
components are premolded.
One of the eet of models brought by Evan Quiros, and my
favorite, the Dornier Do-335 Pfeil. Built from the German Engel
kit, this entry took Critics Choice, Flight, Pilots Choice and Best
Cockpit awardsand deserved them all!
The Accessory Package and Willy Pete rockets under the
wings of Scott Davis L-19 Bird Dog sure add to the realism.
Surface detailing was equally well done.
Witchcraft B-24 by Cal Branton took the Critics Choice, Static
award. Very nice surface detail, as evidenced in this photo.

incident damaged the right wing, which
Merlyn probably has already repaired!
ALL PA PP RT OF THE SHOW!
Two additional visual highlights of the
event were the noontime show in which
combat reenactments took place; separate
activities for WW I and WW II models com-
plete with strang runs, ak explosions,
and bomb bursts. All this wall-to-wall
activity was enhanced by the inclusion of
some amazing pyrotechnics skillfully cho-
reographed by a team of experts. Tim John-
son ew his B-29 Enola Gay to a comfort y -
able altitude and as he passed over head,
a gasoline bomb went off at show center
creating a huge explosion and a mush-
room cloud, the heat of which could easily
be felt from my location directly across the
runway. Amazing and effective show!
If that wasnt enough, full-size partici-
pation in the form of a T-28, P-51, T-33,
Fokker D-7 replica, and a ight of RV-4s and
RV-6s was obviously one of the highlights
for many of those on hand. On the ight
home while assembling my notes, I realized
just how seamless the activities at this event
were. Lots of planned activity and enter-
tainment, y as much as you wanted, ven-
dors to visit (and buy spare parts), an auc-
tion with some incredible bargains, great
food, wonderful fellowship; you couldnt
help but want to go back. Im ready!

Warbirds Over the Rockies Caught at the instant of bomb release, Eduardo Estaves P-47. Miss
Plaineld markings duplicate those of Col. Steve Pisanos, WW II ace
and guest speaker at the event banquet. Inset: Talk about realism

halftime display. The dedicated pyrotechnics group did a masterful job!

FLIGHTTEST
This plane could probably take off from almost any decent surface. As tested, there
is plenty of prop clearance, and the wheels can easily traverse 1- to 2-inch grass.
The Magnum .70 may be a little on the overkill end of the power spectrum, but it sure
makes the Paulistinha tons of fun to y! Takeoffs are uneventful; line up, power up,
and the plane will just about levitate up in a few short feet. My landings are typically
more interesting, but landing this model makes everyone look good because the
plane is so forgiving. On your approach, youll just maintain some speed until you
break into ground effect, cut to idle, and lead the P-56 back to the tarmac feeding in
a slight bit of elevator. Taxiing the Paulistinha is a piece of cake; the tailwheel does a
great job driving the plane around.
GENERAL FLIGHT PERFORMANCE
Stability: On the ground and in the air, the airplane is solid and feels comfortable.
Newer pilots will appreciate this.
Tracking: Once trimmed for straight and level ight at cruise, I did notice a slight
tendency for the plane to pitch up slightly at full throttle; but this is to be expected
from a high-wing trainer type of aircraft.
Aerobatics: More than meets the eye! Loops (no matter how large), faster than
expected rolls, and all combinations pose no challenge. Spins, snaps, inverted ight
and tumbles are starting to fall out of scale ight but are too cool. Then we go to
the other side: knife-edge ight is awesome and torque rolling the P-56 makes me
happy. I also did some rolling circles and point rolls for fun.
Glide and stall performance: I added a bit of weight with my setup, however the
models glide is still smooth and predictable. As long as the wing stays ying and
the nose is just under level, it will just oat along. Stalls will break straight ahead and
adding power will have the plane ying again immediately.
PILOT DEBRIEFING
Set up with low rates, the P-56 is docile and can be used to teach aspiring pilots
the in and outs of ying RC. As the pilot progresses, the model can be congured to
perform with more agility, thereby giving one an opportunity to learn aerobatics. For
the experienced pilot, the P-56 is a nice change and will surprise those at the eld
when you do a 50-grit knife-edge pass or tail touch during a hover!

ready, you will epoxy the halves together
and make sure you add epoxy to both root

If you use the recommended engine,
youll have no issues installing it. I chose
to add a slightly larger 4-stroke and needed
to make a small notch to clear its choke

template that you will use as a practice
piece. Once you outline and cut it, you
can rene the actual cowl with ease. There
are plastic windows that must be cut out

sharp blade and score along your cut lines
well, or just use some polycarbonate-type

A cheery pilot is fastened to a ply plate and

looks great without any additions.

Power Up
More often than not, a
manufacturers recommendation
regarding components is spot
on. Extensive testing and
experience has led them to nd
what works best. However,
some of us simply want more.
When you decide to add a larger
engine or motor to your aircraft,
it is a good idea to consider a
few things.
Q Will the larger powerplant affect
the weight and center of gravity of
the aircraft in such a way that ight
performance will suffer or become
unsafe?
Q Are extensive modications
required to accommodate the new
power system?
If the answer is yes to any of the
above, I would shy away from making
the change to avoid the possibility
of a negative outcome. Just the
same, if you answer yes to any of the
following, an engine upgrade may be
just what the doctor ordered.
Q Can the models airframe handle
the higher stress and loads of more
aggressive ight characteristics?
Q Does the recommended prop have
enough ground clearance?
Q Does the manufacturer specify that
a larger engine may be used?
Q Is the model sluggish and climb at
an undesirable rate?
Q Are you located/do you y at a
higher elevation?
Q Is compromising the models scale
ight characteristics acceptable?
Remember, adding power doesnt
always coincide with adding
performance. You can sometimes use
some of your smaller components
thereby lightening your aircraft and
have a huge effect on how it ies
without buying something new and
performing a heart transplant.
CONCLUSION
It would be safe to say I spent a few short
evenings on the P-56 or about eight
hours. It is a very easy build and if youve
mastered a trainer, this is a perfect second
plane. It can cruise around slow and easy
or rip around and do some incredible
stunts. Im not against yellow, but taking
a break from it and my mid-wing eet is
more fun than I thought it could be.

FLIGHT TECHNIQUE:
Frankly, anyone can spin an
airplane by throwing the sticks into
the corners until the ground forces
him to recover. At the advanced
level however, an upright spin is
an intentional altitude reduction
maneuver in which the pilot
idles the engine and holds
the plane straight and level
until it stalls. He then
performs a determined
number of spins,
stopping precisely on the
heading that he intended
to set up for the next
maneuver. Consequently, the
pilot performing intentional spins
enjoys a level of satisfaction well
beyond the typical stick thrower. A
spins rotation is similar to a snap
roll, yet what distinguishes it as
a spin is that the rotation is not
initiated until there is a clear stall
break (nose drop) from level ight
with the engine at idle.

GETTING STARTED
Setting up a spin starts with idling the
engine. The pilot then concentrates on
maintaining a constant altitude with ele-
vator. The wings are kept level with tiny
aileron inputs, and rudder is used to keep
tracking straight. The increasing amount
of elevator required to hold altitude at idle
will eventually put the airplane into a stall.
At the moment the nose breaks (drops),
the spin is initiated with the pilot simul-
taneously applying full up-elevator (if its
not there already) and full rudder and aile-
ron in the same direction. Its worth noting
that because the engine forces tend to be
minimal at idle, most planes spin equally
well left or right. If the airplane has a pro-
portionally large propeller and a fast idle,
the plane will tend to spin better to the left
with engine torque and propwash. That
said, most of the time its preferable to ini-
tiate the spin inputs into the wind, which
results in a more compact and distinct spin
entry; a downwind spin entry tends to
appear more like a spiral.
RECOVERING FROM A SPIN
To stop spinning, simply neutralize the
controls. Note that the slower nature of
spins means less air over the wings and
control surfaces, and so the spin will tend
to consistently stop the spin on a precise
heading. Note that a two-turn spin is used
here to afford more time to develop good
spin timing.
Setup. Experience will teach roughly when
to idle the engine relative to where you
want the spin to occur; however, when dif-
ferent winds and airplanes are introduced
into the equation, deciding when to idle to
set up a spin is often just a guess. A more
sure method is to reduce the power to near
idle well short of the point that you want
the spin to occur, approach that point on
the edge of stall, and just short of that
point fully idle the engine, thus achieving
a stall moments later.
Stall break and spin. An advanced pilot
does not arbitrarily decide what direction
to spin at the moment the plane breaks,
but sneaks in a little rudder pressure in
the direction in which he wants to spin as
he senses the airplane is about to stall. He
doesnt input enough rudder to be visible,
but just a little something to help ensure
that the plane breaks in the direction of his
choosing.
Recovery. The best way to consistently
stop spinning on a precise heading is to use
mental cues to keep track of the spins rev-
olutions. Its important to dene a timing
base around which you can neutralize the

lower the nose and build

to continuing rotating a bit after the con-
trols have been neutralized. Therefore, you
have to neutralize the controls, on average,
a quarter turn before you actually want the
plane to stop.
After the spin has stopped, the nose
should be lowered to gain additional
airspeed, then smoothly pull out while
adding power. Be very careful not to jerk
the elevator; you will likely tip-stall the air-
plane and enter an inadvertent secondary
spin with additional altitude loss.
BREAKING IT DOWN
The four main spin phases are setup; stall
break and spin; recovery (stopping the
spin); and the nish. There are particular
points to make about each phase that will
improve performance appreciably. In par-
ticular, its important to gauge the timing

denite spin axis. If taking out the in-
spin aileron causes the plane to stop spin-
ning, you will have to determine at what
point the spin stops and not switch the
aileron beyond that.
Next, the throttle is advanced to create
the gyroscopic procession force that will
pitch the nose up farther while spinning.
The more power you use, the atter the
fuselage angle will usually become. Yet, if
at a certain point the airplane starts the
spiral out of the spin, instead of atten-
ing, that is the limit to how far you can
advance the power in a at spin with that
airplane setup.
The deeply stalled at spin will always
take longer to stop rotating after you neu-
tralize the controls. Always idle the engine
and apply full opposite rudder as part of
the recovery to stop the spin in a reason-
able time frame from when the recovery
was initiated.
CONCLUSION
There will always be pilots who try to
impress by throwing the sticks into the cor-
ners until altitude forces them to recover,

feature of the spin at the advanced level.
Note that it is not neeecessary to hold the
downline very long, juuust having a down-
line at all creates a sennnsational spin nish
(in addition to buildinnng up speed for the
next maneuver).
FLAT SPINS
A regular upright left spin can be transi-
tioned into a at spinnn by applying out-
spin right aileron (ooopposite the spins
rotation) to atten the wings, while adding h l dd
power to induce gyroscopic procession to scopic procession to
raise the nose while spinning. While a at
spin would not be used in precision ying
because it is much harder to stop precisely,
it does expand the scope of spins available
for the advanced pilot to perform.
Due to the gyroscopic procession of
the spinning propeller, upright spins can

Mastering Upright Spins
A Different
Perspective On Spins
Contributor Dave Scott is the
founder of the 1st U.S. R/C Flight
School and has professionally
trained more than 1,300 pilots. He
also ies full-scale planes and puts
on airshows at events across the
country. Whats it like to spin in a
full-size plane? Dave responds:
U
pright spins are similar to model
aircraft with the exception of
the fact that we use our feet to
control rudder and a full-scale airplane
requires full opposite rudder to stop the
spin. Also, if a pilot tries to recover an
upright spin and pushes the stick too far
forward, he can transition into an inverted
spin, which is very disorientating. That is
why aerobatic pilots practice the Beggs
emergency spin recovery of pulling the
throttle back to idle, letting go of the stick,
and applying full opposite rudder.
The killer in full-scale aerobatics occurs
when the pilot becomes disorientated
and starts making improper control inputs
that ultimately aggravate or prolong
the spin. Adding, reducing, or applying
opposite aileron, neutralizing or pushing
the elevator forward all change the
characteristics of the spin. For example,
pushing the stick forward accelerates an
upright spin, but only pulling the power
and applying full opposite rudder stops a
well-developed spin.
As I just learned practicing every
type of spin this past week, you can
read and be told how to perform and
recover from different types of spins, but
it takes several attempts to acclimate
ones self to the experience before he
starts committing to using the correct
techniques. Visually, inverted spins are far
more confusing from the pilots viewpoint
and take more getting used to; rudder is
opposite, for example. Inverted spins are
also faster because the rudder is more
effective. It also helps to have your belts
super tight when hanging upside down.
It took a couple of days of intense
training, but Im no longer uncomfortable
spinning in any attitude and I know that
if I found myself disorientated during
an inadvertent spin, I can recover with
minimal altitude loss. A lot of people
avoid spin training because of the initial
discomfort, but if their airplane ever
departs controlled ight unexpectedly,
odds are theyll end up improperly trying
to recover with the stick if they havent
experienced those sensations in a
controlled training situation.

A spinning propeller is, in effect, a gyroscope spinning mass. As is the nature of


gyroscopes, when a force is applied to the spinning mass, the resulting force is
transferred, or processed, 90 degrees ahead of the applied force in the direction
the propeller is spinning. In this case, left rudder with power applied will have the
effect of applying additional up-elevator, causing the nose to rise.

FLIGHTTEST
I like to properly break in my gas engines, especially high-performance ones like
the Hanson 3D Max I used on the Spectra G. First, I ran a gallon of regular gasoline
mixed 32:1 with Lawn Boy oil and then switched to Penzoil synthetic marine 2-cycle
oil. After break-in, the engine ran very smoothly and started easily. If youre new to
gas engines, youll love their reliability, easy starting and little oil to clean up after
ying.
GENERAL FLIGHT PERFORMANCE
Hover: Big gassers like the Spectra G really shine in the hover. They are heavier than
.90-size nitro models and are therefore not bothered by the wind gusts. The sheer
size of the model makes it rock-solid in just about any weather conditions. I also
found the model to be very smooth with little vibration.
Forward ight: This model has great all-around ight characteristics. I was
pleasantly surprised on how quick the cyclics were and how light it felt in the air.
Fast forward ight reminds me of ying a pattern plane: fast, predictable and true.
Aerobatics: If loops, rolls and big air maneuvers are your bag, youll be thrilled with
the Spectra G. 3D ight requires a smooth touch on the controls since it doesnt
have the power-to-weight ratio of a nitro or electric heli. Basic 3D maneuvers,
such as tic-tocs, are easily done but does require a slower transition. The 710mm
V-Blades are a good match and provide great hover stability and aerobatic ight. The
tail rotor provides good pirouette rates and the Futaba GY601 performed awlessly.
The models large size creates plenty of inertia, making autorotations a piece of cake
with plenty of hang time.
PILOT DEBRIEFING
Im partial to FAI-style ying and smooth 3D, and the Spectra G does everything I
want very well. With the price of nitro fuel today, the economics of this model makes
sense. The Hanson engine uses less fuel per ight, and the fuel is considerably
cheaper. Being larger and heavier, the model does take a bit longer to change speed
and direction compared to a nitro or electric mode. However, with a little nesse,
it can do most any maneuver including 3D. Gassers are often thought of as photo/
video platforms or for their other utility roles, but the Spectra-G does much more.
The models excellent construction, durability and great looks make it a great choice
for the intermediate to experienced pilot.

to change the location of the fuel tank. I
mounted the Zenoah engine facing for-
ward, with the fuel tank in the back so that
the tank would be closer to the mainshaft.
This minimizes CG changes as the fuel
level drops and it is also easier to see the
amount of fuel remaining while the heli is
in ight. Another benet of this congura-
tion is that it looks neater with the mufer
farther forward. The engine mount is self-
aligning for easy engine installation and
The rotor head is a work of art and
includes high-quality CNC-machined
components. It offers precision and
durability.

While the new 120 SR is certainly small enough to y inside, Blade has
optimized its power, size and control authority so that it feels like a bigger
heli when you y it outside, even if theres a little wind. At the heart of
this impressive performance is a Bell-Hiller head design that gives the
120 SR the kind of speed and agility you would expect from a single-rotor
heli plus some of the hands of stability of a coaxial heli. It also features
adjustable swash sensitivity that lets you tweak it for more aggressive
control response when youre ready.
Check out the Blade 120 SR at your favorite Blade retailer or get details,
video and more at bladehelis.com.

removal. The clutch is heavy-duty, yet is
not very heavy.
The Tempest rotor head has a high-
quality aluminum yoke, and the blade
grips have triple ball bearings. As might be
expected on a machine of this caliber, the
mixer levers are ball-bearing supported and
the geometry can be adjusted for various
Bell/Hiller rations for aggressive or smooth
control response. The all-metal swashplate
appears to be very durable and smooth.
The rotor head operates very smoothly
with no slop in the control system. The
constant drive tail is driven by a heavy-
duty torque tube and the open style tail

Six Spark Plug Tips
Modelers often overtighten their spark plugs, and this can cause the
threads in the cylinder to strip out if care is not taken. Here are some
guidelines.
Q Gasket seat: tighten the plug an additional
1

16 to

8 turn after it is nger tight.
Q Tighten seat: often referred to as gasket-less plugs, these need to be tightened an
additional

16 turn after they are nger tight.
Q Before you install any spark plug, compare the old and new plugs to make sure
that the replacement has the same thread diameter, pitch, thread length and seat
conguration as the original plug.
Q Let the engine cool before you attempt to loosen and remove the plugs. This will
reduce the risk of damaging the threads in the cylinder head.
Q Always inspect the old plugs after they have been removed, and note the
condition of the fuel mix that would indicate whether the engine runs rich or lean.
Q Inspect the plug lead and cap and replace them if the insulation is damaged.
case makes it easy to inspect and maintain
the gearbox components.
For maximum power and performance, I
used the BH Hanson 3D Max engine capa-
ble of nearly 5 horsepower, coupled with a
Hatori gas mufer. Since helis often operate
near the ground and are prone to ingesting
dirt and dust, I recommend a high-quality
and efcient air lter such as the Miniature
Aircraft Air Filter, which I got from New
England Heli (newenglandheli.com). The
custom painted canopy was painted by my
good friend Jimmy Ferriola.
CONCLUSION
The Spectra-G was a very pleasant build
with no issues and resulted in a smooth
and great-performing heli. This machine is
more expensive than others on the market,
but you get what you pay for, and it is ide-
ally suited for those who only want the
best with no compromises. Its advanced
engineering and quality construction
result in a super-strong airframe that can
withstand the rigors of 3D ight. Due to
its performance and size, I recommend this
model for pilots with at least intermediate
skills.

FIREWALL FORWARD
Choosing the right engine can sometimes
be tedious, especially when it comes to a
scale aircraft. This column is written with
the giant-scale enthusiast in mind, so be
advised that larger glow fuel engines will
cost more to run. Glow fuel costs more per
gallon than gasoline and the consumption
rate is also greater than with gas engines.
A good way to choose a suitable engine
is to not exceed a weight-to-engine-dis-
placement ratio of 12 pounds (aircraft
weight), per cubic inch (ci) of engine dis-
placement. For example, with an Evolu-
tion 40GX, the displacement is 2.4ci and
my estimate weight for my T-34 is between TT
21 and 23 pounds. So, using 23 pounds,
the ratio would be 9.58 pounds per cubic
inch of engine displacement. Tweaking TT
also wanted to have a little more power for
some non-scale aerobatics in the 35cc-
40cc range. The Evolution 40GX t the bill
nicely.
If you are interested in comparing
engines, I found a website youll nd
useful. While it doesnt have every engine
listed, it does have quite a few. Check out
Chris Brewers Engine Comparison chart at
the engine with prop and mufer choices
should produce adequate power.
The Mentor was originally powered by
a Moki 1.8 engine and it had a custom-
made exhaust. Using the formula above,
this engine produced a ratio of 12.77, just
over the 12-pound maximum. Since it was
for Fun Scale, I wasnt worried about the
engine not being fully concealed and I
This Dremel Oscillating tool is great
for cutting through thick plywood. In
this case, I had to make a few cuts in
my rewall and rewall frame for the
wraparound mufer, and using this tool
made it a breeze.
Here is the rst cut I made into the
rewall frame. As you can see, I have
again marked the rewall frame to make
a second cut for the mufer. Always start
with small cutouts and gradually remove
more and more material as needed.
When it came time to align the engine,
I rst bolted in the bottom half of the
cowling. Then, I needed to position the
engine in place so that I could center the
shaft of the engine with the opening at
the front of the cowling where the shaft
would protrude.

FEBRUARY 2011 107
scaleaero.com/engine_comparisons.htm
When ying scale, performing with
scale-like airspeeds is more important than
having excess power. So, to maximize your
power and ight performance, make sure
your aircraft is as light as possible and keep
its wing loading pilot friendly. Lighter
wing-loadings provide slower ight speeds!
EVOLUTION 40GX INSTALLATION
During the rebuild of my T-34, install-
ing the new engine took the most time
and effort. The plane featured a two-piece
engine cowl that separated into an upper
and lower partquite common for most
giant-scale planes. Since the cylinder head
was going to be exposed, I had to make
a few rough cutouts in the cowl before I
could install the engine. Always make your
cutouts small and dont rush the process.
An excessively large opening will hurt the
appearance of your scale model. Slowly
enlarge the opening until you have a snug
t. To make it easier to center the engine
shaft with the front of the spinner opening
I installed the bottom half of the cowl rst.
This gives plenty of access to the rewall
when placing the new mount bolts.
After the engine is positioned, I marked
the hole locations with a pencil and drilled
1
/8-inch pilot holes in each of the four
spots. I then used wood screws to tem-
porarily fasten the engine in place and
ensure that it was properly centered. After
this process was completed, I removed the
engine, redrill the four mounting holes to
accept 8-32 blind-and glued the blind-nuts
in place on the inside of the rewall.
FITTING THE MUFFLER
I wanted to keep the exhaust as simple as
possible so I used the Evolution inverted
wraparound mufer. Since its best used
with aerobatic models that incorporate
a motor mount box, the installation in
a scale plane was quite tedious. I had to
remove a good portion (roughly 15-20%)
of the rewall to make room for the
exhaust system. To restore strength, I rein-
forced the back of the rewall with epoxy,
milled berglass and carbon ber.
Again, while removing portions of
the rewall, I went slowly and removed
one piece at a time. This ensured a neat
t with a minimum of rewall being cut
away. I also made a small hatch cover on
the right side of the fuselage to cover most
of the mufer. The opening also made the
installation easier. Had I not made the
opening I wouldve needed to remove a
larger portion of the rewall to t the muf-
er so it would t into place from the front.
TRIMMING THE COWLING
Measure twice and cut in small incre-
ments. Cowl openings are required for
the mufer, carburetor, and engine head.
Cut and t and cut and t again. If the
engine makes contact with the cowl, use
a small Dremel grinding wheel and a cir-
cular sanding block to make your cutouts
clean and smooth. Mark the cowl with a
pencil from the inside remove the material
and test the t the cowling until it can be
properly secured in place. This process can
take hours to perform properly. You should
end up with equal spacing (about
1

1
8 inch),
all around the engine, carburetor, and
mufer. In the end, it is worth the effort
because your model will look neater and
much more professional with everything
tting perfectly.
TIP OF THE MONTH:
AN ENGINE
FOR A YAK
Another example is the Desert Aircraft
150cc engine I installed in my 37.5%
Yak 54. Since this plane features a
radial engine cowl, aligning the engine
is rather simple. However, to center
the prop shaft in the cowl opening,
the engine has to be offset because
of the rewalls built-in right thrust.
Move the engine to the left until the
spinners backplate is centered within
the cowling opening.
I use clamps to temporarily hold
the engine in place. Then with the
cowl fastened, I can move the engine
until it is in the proper position. Next,
I mark the attachment bolt hole
locations. Remove the cowl and
engine, drill the holes and reinstall the
engine. Its that simple.
After the engine was positioned and
the mounting hole areas were marked,
I always drill a small pilot hole and use
a wood screw to temporarily fasten the
engine into position. If any change needs
to be done, I can re-drill the rewall so
that the engine is perfectly mounted.
After satised, I re-drill the four locations
with the proper size drill bit that will be
for the Tee Nut that is to be secured on
the back of the rewall. In this case, I
used 8-32 socket head bolts to secure
the engine to the rewall, with 8-32 Tee
Nuts and Lock Nuts as a safety measure.
I have drilled the Evolution radial mount
in four locations. This mount is secured
to both the back of the engine, and also,
to the rewall of the aircraft.
The engine and mufer have been
installed, as has the bottom half of the
cowling. Time and patience pays off!

COWL HALVES
For a neater and stronger installation, I
decided to use four 6-32 bolts and blind
nuts to secure the cowling ring to the fuse-
lage and, six 4-40 bolts and blind nuts to
secure the cowling halves together. I made
a few alignment tabs out of

the tabs were installed in a symmetrical
fashion, and were centered on the cowl-
ing seams. I roughened the area where the
tabs would be glued with 80-grit sandpa-
per, then used Medium ZAP to glue each
tab in place. Once all tabs were secured, I
installed the cowling halves, adjusted the
halves as necessary until I had a perfect t.
I then installed the 4-40 socket head bolts
with blind nuts on the backside of each
mounting tab. Neat and simple.
Tightening the two 4-40 bolts with their
corresponding washers in place.
Here is a shot of one of the mounting tabs.
I have secured the tab to the top half of
the cowling and have secured a 4-40 bolt
and Tee Nut in place. For extra assurance,
a second Tee Nut and bolt will be secured
on the top portion of the cowling to
ensure the tab will not break loose.
Both halves of the cowling have been
properly secured and the airplane looks
beautiful!
PARTING SHOT
Whenever you install an engine, exhaust
system and engine cowl, be sure you pick
the proper engine and exhaust system to
do the job. Then take the time to make
the installations as neatly as you can. Keep
your plane as light and as strong as pos-
sible. After all, your models lifespan is
directly affected on how well you built it
and how well you y it.

onnections have been made

on the receiver. This system
FF
a long time, but as our air-
FF
we started to put 2-3 servos
FF
ace, or decided to add all
FF
etail. Each scale wing alone
FF
for ailerons, aps, retracts,
FFengines (if twin), bomb drops and the list FF
goes on and on. That bunch of wires lead-
ing to the receiver eventually gets unman-
ageable and costly. This is where the Futaba
S.Bus system can really shine, because only
one wire comes off the receiver and feeds
out to all of the servos. On the S.Bus system,
you can program the ends of the S.Bus
decoders or the S.Bus servos to only listen to
the selected channel. This system is perfect
for large planes, large-scale aircraft or jets, or
any plane or helicopter that has a number
of servos. Lets rst take a look at the com-
ponents that make up the S.Bus system.
WHAT YOU NEED
The Futaba S.Bus system can be installed
by either using your existing servos, even
though they may not be Futaba servo. You
can also use the system with the New S.Bus
servos. Probably the hardest part of switch-
ing over to the S.Bus is guring out what you
need to make the conversion; at least that
was the hardest part for me. Here is a run-
down on the equipment I use for the two
airplanes I converted.
For the AeroWorks Pitts Python (for
which I kept the existing servos), I used:
the R6108SB receiver, some SBD-1 decoders
(available in 400, 1100 and 1600mm) and
the Futaba SBC-1 S.Bus channel changer. The
USB interface CIU-2 could be used in place
of the SBC-1. Because the Futaba S.Bus termi-
nal box 4-way was out of stock, I used some
S.Bus Hub with cables.
For the Quique Yak 54 101, I replaced all
of the old servos with the new Futaba S.Bus
A9072SB servos. I used the R6108SB receiver,
The USB interface CIU-2 for programming
Futaba S.Bus
Pylon with the new S.Bus system, but I still
wanted to keep the servos I have in the
plane. I installed the R61108SB receiver and
the SBD-1 decoders using some of the S.Bus
cables to connect to the single S.Bus connec-
tion on the receiver. With this setup I was
able to keep both digital and analog servos
that were already installed in the plane. I
programmed the decoders using the SBC-1,
which made it a simple operation. Each
decoder has three servo connections, each
number SX1, 2 and 3; it was just a simple
matter of setting the channel selection for
the connector based on the servo that was
attached to it.
The advantage here was that I could
connect all the decoders to the servos and
then, using the SBC-1, set the connector to
the channel I wanted that servo on. I set
the channel selector switch on the SBC-1
to the channel I wanted that connector on
(1-16), plugged in the connector, connected
a receiver battery, pressed the setting switch
PRODUCTREVIEW
BY B JOHN REID Y
Next generation radio system with complete servo control
the servos and some S.Bus Hub with cables
(300 and 1000mm) to make the connections
to the servos.
THE SYSTEM
The way the S.Bus system works is that all
of the channel signals from the transmitter
are sent from the receiver through the S.Bus
cable, to each S.Bus servo or each end con-
nector on the decoders. You then program
the servo or connector end on the decoder
to a specic channel. When all of the com-
mands come down through the S.Bus cable,
the servo or connector will only listen to the
channel it was programmed to. That means
the rst step for me was to program each
of the servo or connectors rst. The SBD-1
decoder and the S.Bus servos can be pro-
grammed with the SBC-1 portable channel
changer or the CIU-2 USB interface.
KEEPING MY SERVOS
I decided to set up my AeroWorks Pitts
Here is my Quique Yak
(no longer available)
back in the air with the
S.bus system installed.
The wiring was much
simplied and the
response from the S.bus
servos is quick.

to select the correct servo connection port
and then pressed and held the setting switch
until I had a solid lightnow that connec-
tor is set to that channel. Little number dots
are included with the decoder and I attached
the correct number to that connector.
Now Ill always know to which channel its
programmed.
The big advantage of this conversion on
the Pitts is that I always had to assemble
and disassemble the wings to the Pitts every
time I ew. There were always four different
connections that had to be made and each
one had to go to the correct connector. Now
I only have two connections that have to
be made and they can plug into any open
port because the servo connections are pro-
grammed to listen to only one channel.
A WHOLE NEW SYSTEM
For the Yak 54 101, I replaced all of the old
servos with the new Futaba S.Bus A9072SB
servos. These are the new servos are digital
and will have 120.8 oz or torque to move
my large surfaces. I decided what chan-
nels I needed the servos on and stuck the
appropriate little number labels to the
servos. It was then a simple matter of con-
necting them to the CIU-2 and using my
laptop to program each servo (to see how
the CIU-2 works check out the sidebar in
this article). Now I can install them into my
aircraft, along with the R6108SB 8-channel
receiver and connect them to any port on
the S.Bus hub at the end of the cables. No
worries, because the servos only obey the
commands of the channel they are pro-
grammed to.
The CIU-2 connects to any
USB port on your computer
and the programming is easy
to use and a free download on
futabarc.com
The SBC-1 is
very easy to use
and you can
program the
S.Bus servos and
decoder plugs
to a specic
channel.
On the decoders
you program
each of the three
connector to a
specic
channel, and
then label them
with a number
sticker.
Here is the S. Bus
cable with the S.bus
hubs at the end. Each
hub can feed three
S.Bus servos or decoders. On the
one hub I have two S.Bus servos
and one S.Bus cable (orange
connector) plugged in. The center
cable feeds another three plugs.
After programming the servos, I After programming the servos I
attach the correct number sticker
(provided) to each servo. This way
I know the channel to which its
programmed.
CIU-2
The USB interface CIU-2 allows you to use your computer to program the new S.Bus
servos and SBD-1 decoders. Before you can use it youll need to visit the Futaba
website and download the PC-Link program for the servos and the SBD-link for
programming the decoders. They are both free. The SBD-link program allows you
to use your computer to program the channel selection for each connector on the
SBD-1 decoder.
The PC-Link program with the CIU-2 gives you the ability to program the channel
for the S.Bus servos and much more. You can program the direction, speed,
endpoint and much more. This is great for things like aps or dual elevators that you
may have on a single channel, but the servos will need to go the opposite direction.
Another situation where it is advantageous to program servos is for retractable
gear doors, you may what them to move out of the way faster than the retracts are
traveling. The bottom line is that the CIU-2 is worth having to make life easier and
programming more accurate with the S.Bus system.

This greatly reduced my clutter of wires
inside the fuselage and prevents any mis-
match connections I may incur when
attaching the wings. I found that I needed
9-channel for all of my connections, but the
receiver only has 8-channel. But that didnt
matter, the receiver does only have 8-ports
for the servos to connect to, but the receiver
still transfers all the channels you have on
the transmitter. Because every channel
from my 10-channel transmitter is pushed
through the S.Bus cable and hubs, my servo
that was programmed to channel 9 per-
formed perfectly. How cool is that?
FINAL OPINION
The S.Bus system is a great setup for anyone
who has a large number of servos in a large
or complicated aircraft. It is easy to program
and work with any Futaba 2.4 transmitter.
You never have to worry about mismatching
servo channels and you can have a single
connection point for removable wings. The
only limitations you have are the number
of channels on your transmitter and best of
all, everything is very easy to program. Once
you try this system, you will want it on all
your aircraft.

PRODUCTREVIEW
Inside Information
We were lucky enough to have the chance
to pose questions to Steve Kaluf, assistant
marketing manager at Futaba, USA. Steve
has been working with the S. Bus system
since it was rst introduced and heres what
he had to say about it
What prompted the design for the S.Bus
system?
One of the main purposes of the S.Bus system
is to simplify the wiring on large models. These
models would normally have leads running from each servo back to the receiver or
have to use Y connectors. S.Bus allows for a single 3-wire cable to be run through
the aircraft with each servo simply branching off from the main cable.
What is the advantage of programming the servo rather than doing it through
the transmitter?
Programming the servo allows you to adjust some parameters that not all
transmitters allow you to do. Neutral position, servo direction, speed, dead band,
travel, servo type (normal or retract), stop mode, boost, damper and other factors
may all be programmed on an S.Bus servo. This is especially useful when matching
multiple servos on a single surface. The servos are easily matched out with the free
PC-Link software used to program the servos.
What do you see as the best feature of this system?
For this answer I went straight to the designer of the system at the Futaba factory:
Wiring is no longer confused as the servo knows what channel to respond to no
matter where it is plugged into the system. t provides a huge reduction in the
required number of wires; this mean less weight, and fewer points of possible failure.

FINALAPPROACH
BY G Y ERRY RR YARRISH
At the 2010 NEAT Fair in Downsville, NY,
we saw a lot of great-looking scale electric-
powered aircraft. There was an amazing
number of WW I airplanes and in particu-
lar, one unusual RC plane that caught our
eye. RC model designer extraordinaire Rob
Caso brought his beautifully built British
de Havilland (Airco) DH-2 pusher biplane
to the event and heres what we learned.
Tell us a little about the DH-2 and why
you decided to build this particular
aircraft.
What about its construction and nish?
Though it looks rather fragile, I used
modern materials to build it. For instance,
the booms are carbon-ber tubes with
carbon rods for vertical braces laminated
in balsa. The tail surfaces use laminated
balsa outlines and the control surfaces are
all pulley and cable pull-pull controlled
using Futaba 3114 servos connected to
external (scale) tiller arms. I also formed
the berglass parts for the nose cone and
the upper fuselage nacelle.
The wings have a scale under-cam-
bered airfoil and the landing gear is shock
absorbing. The tail-skid is also spring
loaded for smooth ground handling. I have
a laser cutter and designed the airframe
with lock-tab construction for strength
and easy alignment. I used more plywood
parts than balsa as plywood seems to hold
up better and really ts together better
than balsa does. All the details are hand-
made and I think the little details like the
auxiliary fuel tank on the top of the wing,
the machine gun, ammunition contain-
ers and the internal cockpit details really
bring the model to life. For paint I simply
used Krylon and Tamiya modeling paint.
This particular model is nished in British
ying Ace Lanoe Hawkers colors.
What are you using for power?
The DH-2 is powered by a Hacker A20
30M brushless motor powered by a FMA
2100mAh 3S LiPo pack. Im using an
18-amp speed control and so far, every-
thing is working out great. I am also plan-
ning to make a scale rotary engine that
will both hide the electric motor and spin
along with the prop. The rest of the model
is so nicely detailed, I just have to cover
up the Hacker motor, so why not go to
the extra effort and make it look authentic
and have it spin? Ill let you know how it
turns out!

The DH-2 has been on my build list for


a long time, and I designed and built it
because you dont see very many of them
at y ins like the NEAT Fair. It is my rst
WW I design and I wanted something that
was both unusual and could be a learn-
ing experience for me. It is modeled in
1

1
9 -
scale and I designed it with CAD. It has a
40-inch wingspan, is 36 inches long and
weighs 34 ounces ready to y. With a wing
area of 510 square inches, this gives me a
wing loading of only 9.8 ounces per square
foot so its a fair weather, calm wind yer.

SOMETIMES THERE IS SIMPLY NO SUBSTITUTE FOR SPEED. The new Hangar 9

Jackal 50 ARF will satisfy your need for speed just like a jet would, but without the
complexity or cost of one. Its sleek, swept-wing design makes it possible to achieve
scorching speeds using nothing more than the economical Evolution

.60NX engine
and a high-performance tuned muffler. It also gives you the option of pushing the speed
envelope even further by adding mechanical or pneumatic retracts.
Assembling the Jackal is as simple as any other Hangar 9 sport plane. Its low parts
count and innovative assembly features, like the bolt-on horizontal stab and elevatorr
servo tray, make it possible to have yours flying in a few evenings. Even the optional l
flaps are cut and hinged for you. Just drop in a servo and hook them up.
