1st U.S. R/C Flight School instructor launches Scott Airshows (full-scale). Building on his 25+ years as a professional R/C aerobatic instructor and demo pilot, Dave Scott has developed a one-of-a-kind full-scale airshow performance featuring continuous action, crisp precision, and constant variety, to produce an airshow routine that blows the doors off the usual barrage of tumbling and stock maneuvers seen at most airshows.

Hi, I am building a P-40 giant scale from Ziroli plans. I will post pictures if anyone is interested of the process. I have modified some parts of the original plans to make it more "scale" accurate. I have added the trims on the rudder and elevator and added the "metal" cover on front of the stabilizer as well as the baggage' door, visor, wing antenna, under wing access trap, etc
I also plan to convert it to electric with a sound system including real P40 sound engine and 2 smoke systems - one dynamically linked to the throttle to recreate the smoke from the exhausts and one under the fuselage for "show".
Another added modification will be the motorized cockpit and the extra drop fuel tank under the wing.
3 high intensity orange LEDs will be added inside the .50 calibers and synchronized with sound system to simulate an attack.
Many other details like rivets, paneling, airbrushing techniques, etc will be described too.
I will do my best to describe each process and add pictures that can help anyone wanting to add these features to their own model. I hope you will have as much fun as I do building my giant models from scratch.
Thanks for joining. Please don't hesitate to ask questions/comments.
I've got a DLE20 with approx. 10 hrs. on it and the roller bearing between the rod and crank went out. A couple of the rollers got wedged between the piston and cylinder head and took out the ring while gouging the piston. Does anyone know of any videos or written articles outlining how to pull the crank ???
I've got the cylinder pulled and have removed the carb. I took out the four (4) bolts holding the back plate on but can't get the plate off. I've removed the two keeper springs that hold the piston wrist pin on and have removed the piston. This is all great but it doesn't solve anything if I can't remove the rod from the crank and get out the failed roller bearing.
I recently rebuilt the carb on my DLE30 and found a great video outlining how to do it and boy was that helpful.

I'm a novice, and still learning can any of the 3D, or precision pilots especially those who fly IMAC , are there any certain colors you should stay away from . I"m learning precision, and 3D. Basically what colors are the best to fly with?
I made a statement about attending 1st US RC Flight School last year, and I attended in May 10-15 of this yea, and IT WAS AWESOME!!

A few day ago I made winglets for my E-flite CZ yak-54, the red and blue cz yak. I though they will work good for Knife Edge flying. Today just a couple days leter with them now on my CZ yak I leave to go work on my I-mac. The wind was out. As soon as I was done doing my basic I'mac with my PZ T-28 gray one I decided to now do it with my CZ yak. Only one thing those. I think after I glued the winglets on it just made it easier for the wind to push my e-flite cz yak plane around. I will give it another go tomorrow and see how it goes. Hopfuly I can do the first I-mac move without getting push around too much. Any ideas of what I could try doing now?
