The cool dry weather we've had in our area is perfect for flying outdoors and we've made it to the park and flying field several times.  Life is good.  One of the local clubs is holding its Annual Fall Classic Fly-in this weekend.

We have added several new products to the site and more are on the way.  One is a great little RC Plane for Beginnersthe Sky Eagle High Wing Cessna Park Flyer.

The Sky Eagle Park Flyer is an excellent beginner electric-powered RC plane from Nine Eagles. The fuselage is made from light but durable EPP foam and it has a patented propeller protective device that minimizes damage to the propeller and motor. The propeller falls off if you crash nose-first. The plane is well-designed for stable flight and it is wind resistant. The included transmitter is a 2.4GHz mode 1/mode 2 controller. Switching between the modes is simple and only takes minutes.

* The patented propeller protective device can avoid damage to the propeller and plane upon impact.

Does your Nosegear need an adjustment?

If your RC Plane is veering to one side or the other on take-off and landing, there's a good chance your nosegear needs adjusting.  I just read a great tip on how to do that in the latest issue of Model Airplane News, contributed by R. J. Musel: "If you're tired of always bending your nose gear from that not-so-perfect landing, then here's a way to prevent it and even add a little shock absorption."  He goes on to say that you'll need a bend at the fuselage where the nose gear wire enters into it, and the nose wheel should also be bent at the coil, to form a 45-degree angle down to the wheel and up to the bottom of the fuselage. For additional shock absorption, glue a piece of hardwood to the firewall, flush with the bottom of the fuselage and do the same thing for the main landing gear.

I purchased this how-to book and it is GREAT! Even if you don't like building things from scratch, there's a lot of great information on how to do little things here and there to make your plane BETTER.  A few of the many topics covered are:  shock-absorbing landing gear, how to work with foam and metal, how to install skis and floats on your plane - and lots more!  You can find "Workshop Secrets," RC Tools, Adhesives and much more at
