I came across some interesting tips for all you RC plane lovers that seem very helpful. Enjoy!
1. Easy Transmitter Case
Most new RC transmitters are delivered in a cardboard box with a foam-fitting insert. This foam insert can easily be transformed into a convenient case for it without spending the extra cash. Simply throw away the cardboard box and use the foam insert. Take some duct tape and place it all the way across one end to form a hinge. Then using white glue, epoxy or foam-safe ca, fasten a length of hook and loop tape to the other end as a lock, as shown in the picture below. Voila! Now you have a safe and easy case for your transmitter.
2. Save That Paint
Now that your plane is complete, want to save the paint for future touch ups or an unexpected landing? Need to mix up that perfect batch for your brush or next air brush job? The perfect way to store your paints is in those plastic prescription bottles with the child-proof lids. They are airtight, small, and most are see-through. They’re also easy to label so you know which model you used them on.
3. Cooler Model Storage
This is a “cool” idea for easy transportation and storage of your models. Just buy a cheap, foam cooler and notch the sides to make way for the wings with the models positioned nose-down in the cooler. If you make the notches deep enough, the transmitter, extra batteries, or other accessories can conveniently fit at the bottom of the cooler.
Behold! The ParkZone Radian RTF electric plane. This beaut comes equipped with 3-channel control and Spektrum 2.4GHz radio technology. The Radian can be flown without the worry or risk of interference. Although a powerful 480 brushless motor enables initial launch, the propeller soon folds back to reduce drag, freeing the plane to utilize thermals of air to remain aloft, instead of batteries. That means flight times for this quiet and eco-friendly alternative are much longer than they are with traditional electric aircraft, making a relaxing day in the great outdoors even better.
Like all of ParkZone’s innovative and high-quality aircraft, the Radian looks great right out of the box and provides pilots with the control and reliability they seek in a park flyer. The plane’s large 2-meter wingspan and elliptical dihedral design improve flight performance and visibility from the ground, while plug-in wings provide for easy transportation and storage.
Not only does the Radian’s lightweight Z-Foam™ construction offer the perfect balance of weight and durability, it also makes repairs simple and quick. Since everything needed to get the Radian airborne is included inside, you are only minutes away from the ultimate soaring adventure.

Spring is coming and it’s time to break out the kites! Flying kites can be challenging at first, but with a little bit of practice, it’s a lot of fun.
