The Pilatus PC-21 is a turboprop-powered advanced trainer with a stepped tandem cockpit. The full size aircraft is manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft of Switzerland. This model kit is manufactured by Tomahawk Design in Germany. In the air it looks and sounds no different to the full size aircraft. It is powered by a JetCat turbo-prop engine.

Martin and Daniel, members of the DMFV Indoor Team, fly their amazing super light A-10 Warthogs indoors at the Modell-Hobby-Spiel Trade Fair in Leipzig, Germany. Not only are these guys amazing and ingenious builders but they are also superbly skilled RC pilots.

Jurgen shows us another of his scratch built, ultra light, creations at the Leipzig Modell-Hobby-Spiel trade fair. This Catalina weighs in at only 38g and is 1:48 scale. Features differential power from the 2 motors and a light system. He even flies it off water !

Awesome example of big sky RC aerobatics. This is Rainer Kamitz giving a demonstration with his Pitts S1S with perfect use of smoke throughout.

Giant Airbus A380 Airliner (Father and Son project)
Filmed this moment at Airliner Treffen in Germany. Built by Father and Son. Think they were quite happy after this flight.

Easy to fly mini P-51D Mustang warbird
I've flight tested a few of these all-in-the-box ready to fly models this year, and this is certainly the best looking one so far. Looks good and flies good. Perfect for the RC pilot who doesn't have time to build or assemble an RC plane. It's 3 flight modes allow a relative new RC pilot to enjoy it and use a trick/aerobatic button to make the P-51 do loops and rolls with a stick input. Expert mode removes the restriction on flying inverted and gives the pilot full control to fly their owner aerobatics. Flight time is really good at 7-8 minutes but dependent on throttle use obviously. It can move quite quickly so I was flying around at half throttle most of the time despite the gusty wind.

Attop P0 Sky Soar RTF plane with auto-levelling
About as basic as you can get for an RTF model. This is 3 channels and the auto-levelling is permanently switched on so it won't roll inverted. Good thing I guess for anyone who has not flown RC before. Add to that that it's a pusher and it is virtually indestructible which I proved by stalling it into the ground, hitting the camera man and flying into a tree. Admittedly this is at the toy end of the RC market but it's fun nonetheless for anyone just dipping their toe into RC flying before considering learning with something bigger.

Not an ideal landing approach but not bad either. Sometimes it's best to take the opportunity and not abort, go around, and aim for perfection. This is why...

Bad luck. Fixable though I suspect.
