What's It all About ???
This page is all about the building and flying of radio controlled model aircraft. It's a highly diversified hobby that takes in as many skills as you like to use. Everything from electronics to carpentry, to painting, to drawing and designing with a little bit of metal work thrown in. Some builders even go into doing their own machining, pattern designing, fibre glassing, moulding and engine design. You can use electric motors, 2 stroke or 4 stroke internal combustion engines or even minature turbine (jet) engines for power. My own models use 2 and 4 stroke internal combustion engines and range in size from about a metre in wingspan to well over 3 metres from tip to tip!

Just a quick update for anyone who is interested. The new camera finally turned up today so I'll be busy the next couple of days madly taking pics and preparing them for upload to this blog. I'm starting off with the Telemaster, then the Lanzo Bomber, the Fournier and the Lazy Bee. Then I'll do the Lancaster and the Texan to Wirraway conversion. The last photos to bring things up to date will be the PRXVI Mosquito and the other new project - a Cessna L19 Bird Dog built from a CNC cut kit - yep - I'm allowing myself to be a bit lazy on that one. The final up date will be to the Gallery but don't expect that till the end of next week. I'll be posting the first of the update photos on Friday. The Aero Commander will be a bit longer because there is not much to show in pics yet
