Model Airplane News - - PREFLIGHT -

From ev­ery­thing you need to know about hinges to ba­sic de­tail and weath­er­ing tech­niques to how to clean and re­build a gas car­bu­re­tor, this is­sue truly has some­thing for ev­ery­one. Love scale war­birds? You won't want to miss our ex­clu­sive review of the Han­gar 9 20cc P-47 Thun­der­bolt, which is big enough to jus­tify its heavy-metal name yet eas­ier to trans­port (and eas­ier on your wal­let!). Our Flight Tests this month also in­clude a mid­size AT-6 Texan, a fast and nim­ble fly­ing wing, and a high-per­for­mance in­door flier (se­ri­ously!).


When our Top Gun buddy Roge­rio Araujo of­fered to send us event cov­er­age of a war­bird fly-in that took place in São Paulo, Brazil, we were ex­cited to see what our mod­el­ing friends in South Amer­ica were fly­ing. It was no sur­prise when we got Roge­rio’s strik­ing images and learned that gi­ant-scale war­birds, de­tailed jets, and RC ca­ma­raderie were just as im­pres­sive south of the equa­tor. Our War­birds “RC For­ever” cov­er­age starts on page 16.
