A few years ago I found a NIB Lanier Sukhoi Kit and built it in the orange Ultracote with the HD scheme. I flew it some the first year and then it hung in my garage. I got it back down this past summer and flew it two different times, and it has hung back up. I am going to be moving soon, and I have way too many...

A variation on the timeless classic that is the 'Slow Poke'. From Durafly...this new version of this retro flier takes minutes to assemble from the small number of components in the box. For relaxed easy SLOW flying it's fantastic. Super slow fly-bys, tight turns and easy inverted flight all make it really...

Version 2 of the H-King Bonsai wing. Minor tweaks for FPV. Great little EPP wing that's almost indestructible as we found out when I gave my buddy Al the responsibility of the first flight. Never again !

But it will be slow especially considering the short kit has not even been cut yet. But the kit should be cut any day as...

Hi Fellows I am quite new to GSN. I have found it to be a great place for info on everything. so now I'm looking for a bit of input. I recently acquired a Bridi Dalotel 84". I don't as yet have it in my little hands to look at it, but am researching a suitable engine. The airplane calls for a .91cu. in. or 15cc. I...

I was quite amazed by this. I had never seen or even heard of a Magnus Effect plane until Finley showed up with what looked like an upside down lawn mower. He's a very articulate kid and talked me through the physics of how this thing works. It doesn't just work...it flies really well...and he built it totally from...
