By Don Sims
There have been a lot of semi scale sports planes hitting the market in recent months and one of the nicest looking is the Piaggio Avanti imported by Hobby-Lobby. This plane is made by Simprop and like its namesake the Avanti is a twin pusher with a canard wing plus it has two other lifting surfaces.

Sonic Liner by Multiplex Sonic Liner by Multiplex
By Michael Heer
Multiplex describes the Sonic Liner as: "The model of the Future." They have made a plane today based on concepts discussed and drawn by aircraft manufacturers of designs that might be seen in airliners in thirty or fifty years and they have captured that beautifully. The Sonic Liner is made of resilient Elapor and with its Delta wing and forward positioned stabilizer/elevator: "These ideas are now reality - today you can fly into the future."

Modesto Fun Fly Modesto Fun Fly
By Michael Heer
This was the Third Annual Electric Fun Fly held by the Modesto Radio Control Club and it will be the only time we hold a big Fun Fly in July! The main story was the flying but it easily could have been the heat and wind. Those of us who live in California's Central Valley are used to hot days but a lot of our flying friends, especially those from the Bay Area are not.

By Bernard Cawley
As many of us are climbing up the lithium-polymer battery learning curve, one of the big questions remains how to get the right charge into them safely and what chargers are suitable. This time, rather than cover another aspect of charger operation separately, I thought I'd provide a look at several lithium charging solutions that are currently available.
