Urban Flyer Urban Flyer
By Chris Vanderbilt
With is well fitting laser cut parts, excellent building manual, and full sized plans, the Urban Flyer is quick and enjoyable building airplane. It can do more than fly in circles and shoot touch and goes. In the air, it is agile and allows a lot of fun in a relatively small airspace.

Modeltech Slope P-51 Electric Conversion Modeltech Slope P-51 Electric Conversion
By Jim Babcock
Is it a P-51, or a big slow glider that looks like a P-51? It thermals, lands at a sedate pace, and it is easy to see and fun to watch. It also flies for nearly eight minutes on full power and it is fun, and that is all that matters.

Mega Motor - ACn22/30/3 Mega Motor - ACn22/30/3
By Andrew Willetts
With similar performance to the Jeti 30/3 at typical sports power levels, but the ability to be pushed harder for more competitive applications, or EDF use, the Mega motor is certainly another welcome choice for the R/C E-flight modeler.

Filip 600 Filip 600
By Andrew Willetts
This sailplane lives up to the hype! It is a slow-flying floater that works well in poor lift, climbs 1100fpm on the suggested Speed 500 geared setup, and it performs extremely well for a 2M glider. Overall it is a great glider both beginners and advanced modelers alike.
