Probably the best example you will see of flutter on an aircraft. Ramy's first flight at Airliner Treffen Show nearly ends in disaster when the push rod on the rudder becomes lose and the flutter destroys the lower part of the rudder. Added to that a bad hinge on an aileron results in flutter of the left wing. It all could have gone very badly wrong...

Giant 1:6 scale Avro Lancasters Formation Duo
At 1:6 scale and 18 feet wingspan these are certainly giant scale RC aircraft. Each Lanc is powered by four Zenoah 38 engines. Flown by Steve and Andy at Weston Park International Model Show.

Large scale Handley Page 42 Vintage 1930s Airliner
Undoubtedly a work of flying art and a very well setup reproduction of this 1930s airliner. Worth watching the engine start sequence alone ! Flown by Joachim Damrath, this Handley Page 42 oozes style and elegance as it cruises around the sky at the Airliner Treffen Show. At 1/10th scale the Wing span / wingspan is 3.96 metres and length is 2.8 metres. A fantastic and unique flying aircraft of a bygone era of airliner passenger travel.

Russian Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-17 EDF jet
The latest large scale EDF jet from Avios. Features a howling 90mm ducted fan system that pushes it along at good speed, retracting landing gear with gear separately sequenced gear doors, an air brake and LED light system. Needs a 6S5000 to 6000 pack to fly. Take off and landing were very easy and in between it performed very nice slow scale aerobatics. Use of the rudder was mandatory in the turns especially in the wind I flew in. Great fun !

Giant 2/3rd scale RC French WW1 HANRIOT HD.1 Fighter Biplane
The Hanriot HD.1 was a French World War I single-seat fighter aircraft. Rejected for service with French squadrons in favour of the SPAD S.7. The type was supplied to the Belgian and the Italian air forces, with whom it proved highly successful. Of a total of about 1,200 examples built, 831 were produced by Italian companies under licence.

This beautiful radio controlled replica of the Hanriot HD.1 was built and flown at LMA Cosford Show by Ian Turney.

The CARF Models B-2 flies at Weston Park International Model Show for the first time. On take off the B-2 inadvertently heads to the right and just gets into the air by virtue of a fortuitous bump in the grass strip. Quick reactions from the pilot on the ailerons steered the jet away and into its ascent to start its display. After several minutes of scale flight the final descent and landing almost turned into disaster with the B-2 touching down a little too early and bouncing off the undulating grass surface. Fortunately the acrobatic flip resulted in minimal damage.
