    Veteran benefits & discounts

    LOWES I can't recall who in the club gave me the heads-up regarding Lowe's giving veteran's a 10% discount on all purchases - I thank you.  I decided to give it a try at the checkout counter today.  The cashier asked for my proof for which all I had was the word "veteran" imprinted on my IL driver's license.  She said that was satisfactory and gave me the discount.  I'm going to shop there more often.   I know there are a number of club members who have served so let's report the vetera

    Nano Talon Crash Repair

    I crashed the Nano Talon pretty good. It stayed broken just long enough to justify buying a full replacement. I have an untouched spare  fuselage but of course I had to snap a wing spar this time. I extracted it, flipped it around, and glued it back in. I'm not quite sure how I tanked it so hard. I think I may have hand launched with auto stabilizer off - because I don't like the servos trying to stabilize all the way up to the launch. Normally I launch with it on and switch to manual once

  • 1/4-Scale AT-6 Texan

    Bet you’ve never seen an AT-6 like this before! That’s because this incredible 126-inch-span aircraft is a prototype for a new CARF-Models offering. Flown by Andreas Gietz, this T-6 is powered by a Moki 250cc 5-cylinder radial engine that sounds magnificent and provides more than enough power (check out those really high-speed passes!). Split fl*ps, retracts, and a functional sliding canopy are the icing on the cake of this composite model. Thanks to Pete and Dean Coxon (aka Tbobborap1 on YouTub

    Sneak Peek: E-flite F-4 Phantom

    MAN contributor Rich Uravitch has a review and flight report on the new F-4 Phantom from E-flite and it looks like this 80mm EDF is a real keeper! With functional scale features like LED landing and navigation lights, full-flying stabs, operational fl*ps and control surfaces with pocket hinges, sequencing nose gear doors and electric retracts with shock-absorbing struts, this F-4 is a beaut! Large enough to impress,  you can fly off most flying field surfaces, including grass runways. The 6S-

    Workshop Build-Along — WW I Weathering

    So you’ve finished painting your new scale airplane and it looks nice and shiny and brand new. You check your model one more time against your photo doc*ments of the full-size plane and there’s som*thing just not quite right… What is it? Well, it would be a safe guess that your full size subject airplane, even if is a nice and shiny freshly painted aircraft, when you look at it, it will seem toned down a little bit. It’s just not as shiny and crisp as your model. Why? The answer is a little surp

    Bombs Away! Easy Upgrade.

    To say I am a proud dad would be right on the money. My son Sean and I have been flying RC for about 10 years here in sunny South Florida. He started at the age of 8 and quickly became a confident, fearless pilot, which is typical for the savvy youngsters who aren’t paying for the stuff. We progressed through the trainers and got into warbirds and eventually 3D, but our love of those “terrors of the sky” remains passionate. We started flying warbird formation about six years ago and quickly rea
