“I am pleased to announce that my Proctor Enterprises Fokker E.III Eindecker kit is complete and flying! The 100-inch wingspan Eindecker is powered by an Astroflight geared 90 brushed motor and (36) 2400 mAh Ni-Cd batteries for fuel. This power combination with a 20–10 Master Airscrew propeller flies the E.III with ease and performs smooth scale-like maneuvers. The 36 Ni-Cds are placed as far forward as possible to help balance this short nose fighter. A very unique feature of this kit is the fully functional ‘scale’ wing warping system. There are no ailerons on this model, just the warping of the wings and rudder input to make turns.”

a geared GWS motor. Rudder response is great when the motor is at three-quarter to full throttle and a little slow when trying to glide with the motor off or clicking over slowly. The elevator response is very good and she'll do loops if you pick up some speed in a shallow dive. I use a 800 mAh battery and I can get over 15 minutes of flying time if I do some gliding. She climbs like a rocket, and handles wind really well too. If it's breezy, most of my fleet will stay home but the Panther doesn't mind at all.”

Scratchbuilt F6F Hellcat Drone by Tom Arnold Tom Arnold scratchbuilt this Grumman F6F Hellcat based on an old set of Comet


Plans he had. Tom used his method of “Lost Foam” fuselage construction with carved foam and ¹⁄₁₆-inch reeds. The result is an exceptionally strong yet lightweight fuselage. The tail surfaces and wing were built per the plans then the frames were covered with tissue. The trim scheme is based on a 1950’s F6F that was used as a drone in “Operation Crossroads.” The insignia was made with tissue, airbrushed Insignia blue and applied to the model with thinned white glue. Tom brought the model to the FAC Non Nats in July as seen here.
