REVIEWS

VAGABOND XL ELECTRO

Mark Wilcockson was the happy recipient of our latest slim red box from Hacker Model Production. He soon had the aerobatic electric glider zipping about the sky!

JR PROPO NINJA

Dave Wilshere is known as a JR specialist but hadn’t taken to flying multicopters – until now! After a proper building session this agile 3D quad put a big smile back on Dave’s face

TRAXXAS ATON

This stylish quadcopter represents a new direction for R/C car giants, Traxxas. It can be raced, flipped and even fitted with a camera for aerial photography. James Crozier gives it a go in all its guises

FEATURES

CLASSIC AEROBATICS

Aerobatic ace, Terry Westrop, invites you to join in the fun with a retro pattern plane. Captivated by a Curare or tempted by a Taurus? There’s no better time to build one and fit it with modern R/C and a classic glow engine – or even electric power!

Jon Hancock’s model of the de Havilland biplane is the subject of an excellent photograph by Ted Kinsman
