You Can Fly 3D!
If you’ve always wanted to try 3D flying but
didn’t know where to start, this month’s
feature is just what you’ve been waiting
for! 1st U. S. Flight School instructor David
Scott is back, and in “Intro to 3D” he lays
the foundation for 3D performance: the
plane, the setup and even pilot skills and
attitude. Stay tuned as David takes you
through some popular 3D manuevers in
On the other side of the spectrum, this
issue marks the return of “;e Road to Top
Gun,” where we share a sneak peek of the
planes and pilots who will be competing at
the upcoming Top Gun Scale Invitational.
Every aviation enthusiast should have the
opportunity to attend this RC event in Lakeland, FL. Scheduled for May 2-6, 2012, Top Gun
attracts the best pilots and planes from around the globe and Model Airplane News is proud
to be a main sponsor. If you go, you’re sure to see the Model Airplane News crew on the
flightline, and I hope you’ll stop to say hello. For directions and times, go to Frank Tiano.com.
Just as it has been for over eight decades, Model Airplane News is your magazine, and we
appreciate your feedback and suggestions. Why not drop us a line at email@example.com or
leave a post on our Facebook page? We hope to hear from you soon.
Learn about what type of plane and setup you need
to fly 3D maneuvers in Dave Scott's "Intro to 3D"
feature this month.
