Here's a fine example of a collaborative effort between Callie and a very skilled modeler...

This is Brent Hecht's rendition of Blue Angels #5 using a Freewing A-4 Skyhawk as the base model :
Freewing A-4 Skyhawk 80mm EDF Jet - Blue Angels #5 by Brent Hecht (6 min 5 sec)


Brent spent many, many hours priming, sanding and then priming and sanding again before final paintwork to achieve this very glossy finish. Callie's custom made markings finished off the project perfectly !

Hi friends !!

Today we're ringing in the New Year with something that's very different and unique for sure...

This is Rodger Hecht's 3D printed Avro Vulcan bomber flying at Rabbit Dry Lake a couple of days ago !

This super cool little EDF was designed as a collaborative effort by a father and his 13 year old son !!!

Here's the build thread:

I find it mind-boggling that folks are literally printing their own planes now, and still CANNOT get over how well this little bomber flies !

Cheers to everyone and all the best in the New Year

There are times when things don't go exactly as planned...

So my buddy Brent was out goofing around with the MiG-29 recently, and decided to do a little MiG-29 "limbo". Well, mother nature had other ideas and reminded him that gravity is still a force to be reckoned with...

At least now he has a great reason for a repaint !

Cheers all and enjoy the shenanigans

Folks, this is indeed a VERY unique and special RC Model Aircraft !

This model was made from the molds used to construct the model Saab 35 Draken used in the final scenes of the 1990 movie "Firebirds", starring Nicholas Cage, Tommy Lee Jones and Sean Young: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_Birds)

Please join us as we watch the MAIDEN FLIGHT of a piece of RC History !
Saab 35 Draken from the 1990 movie "Firebirds" - MAIDEN FLIGHT! (6 min 39 sec)


The molds for this model have been stored in a location in Arizona since the movie was made, and were acquired by a group of RC enthusiasts about a year and a half ago: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...b-Draken-build

Master modeler Rodger Hecht was contacted by one of the people involved, and Rodger built this model from those ORIGINAL molds.....meaning, this is the FIRST TIME one of these models has flown since the movie was made !

Please enjoy watching this HISTORIC flight, and forgive me of any wind noise in the background...
