The Hannibal is similar in appearance to the Magnattila and the Attila and is for those who want a slow flying monster aeroplane that handles like an aileron trainer, it's just bigger. You may be surprised to know that the Hannibal makes an excellent club trainer because of its slow flying characteristics.
Take full advantage of petrol engines in this model; the cowl will hide virtually any. Again the concept is the same as for its smaller brothers; looks scale like, can be thrown around a bit, but forgives a shaky thumb.

Some vintage models are ugly, (not to put too fine a point on it), but take a look at the Black Magic, the design is superb. The engine installation, the tailplane mounted part way up the fin, the faired undercarriage legs, all add up to sheer elegance. Fred Hempsall got it right way back in 1946 but the construction techniques exclude beginners.

It should be remembered that true vintage models were designed before it became normal for plans and instructions to be minutely detailed. As a consequence it will be necessary for the builder to interpret 3 view drawings and to some extend decide on the order of construction for this model. Kit Contents:Strip and sheet wood, pre cut parts, engine mount, hardware pack, plan.
The Bristol F2B was a development of the F2A which had been designed to fill the need in 1916 for a reconnaissance aircraft that was capable of ‘looking after itself’. It did far more than that once a few pilots stopped believing the false rumours that the type lacked structural integrity and started flying it like a fighter.
When the F2B arrived at the front with its Rolls Royce Falcon III of 275 horsepower it was so successful that the Ministry for defence soon followed up the initial order for 200 aircraft with many more orders.
In what has been described as a typical Bristol F2B action, on the 30th of November 1917, McKeever, with his observer/gunnerPowell, met a pair of German two seat observation aircraft escorted by seven Albatros scouts. McKeever shot down one of the two seaters, Powell shot down two of the Albatros (a very capable scout) and McKeever shot down a third Albatros that had overshot the Bristol.
The Bristol Fighter, as it became known, was such a versatile design that it continued in service until long after the Great War was finished and it was not until 1932 that the RAF finally relinquished its greatest two seat fighter.
The model presented here is at one sixth scale which, because the prototype was of generous proportions, produces a model of not insignificant size.
I think that I can guarantee that any modeller placing his newly finished F2B on the grass or tarmac for the first time will be wearing a very smug look and if you derive just half the pleasure from this machine that I have gained from designing, building and flying it you will be very pleased.
The kit includes much detail such as the gun mount, closed loop systems for the rudder and elevators, plus router cut horns and radiator parts. The finished model really does take you back in time to 1918.
Flying wires can be added for extra realism but are not required for structural integrity.

We wanted to recreate the style of 1930's sport aircraft with full aerobatic ability. The Patriot has already become a firm favourite. It is lightly loaded and flies superbly on a .40 even with the 1.5 lb ballast we added at the CG to test its higher wing loading characteristics.
For those with some previous flying experience and employing extensive usage of interlocking die-cut liteply for accuracy and simplicity.

Sorry, discontinued by Flair. Radical RC is now out of stock. Please consider another kit for your next project, thank you.
6 years on and the original prototype still flies regularly at shows around Great Britain. (She really needs a pilot!). One of Flairs Quarter Classics Series - near scale quarter size models of truly memorable aircraft, it is a true classic.
Example above, T-5424 is painted in RAF training colours. It is flown regularly as part of the "Diamond Nine" display team no doubt reminding many a former RAF pilot of their training days.
General Construction Notes: The Flair Tiger Moth is designed for those with some experience looking for a larger near scale biplane. It is straightforward to build and we hope that the time we have spent preparing the instructions and diagrams will make construction a pleasure and produce a model of which the builder can be proud.
Centre of Gravity Position: 190-210mm back from centre section leading edge of top wing.
Incidence Angles: Tailplane +1.5deg, Top Wing +1.7deg, Bottom Wing +3deg.

WW1 Ace Baron Von Richthofen flew the Fokker Triplane to legendary success and it was only when he was confronted by Captain A R Brown in a Sopwith Camel that his luck ran out in March 1918. The Baronette builds into a realistic sport scale model of this famous aircraft and provides a superb mount for exciting dog fights. Three simply built flat wings, with ailerons in one only, make building straightforward. The high undercarriage necessitates careful rudder steering on take off; this is then rewarded by surprisingly stable flight characteristics.
This is one of our earlier kits and as such it should be remembered that the instructions require the builder to interpret the full size plan more so than more modern kits. This said the kit builds easily and is a fine performer. Specification.

Representing the French, the Legionaire is a sport scale version of the Nieuport 17. Most allied air forces flew this impressive machine, more properly called a sesquiplane because of its 1 and 1/2 wings.
Just like the real thing with its high undercarriage this model requires accurate rudder control on take off but once in the air is a real smoothy and is instantly forgiven.

Manufacturer: Over ten thousand Puppeteers have been sold; the reason being is it looks the part, flies like a dream, and evokes all the atmosphere of early flying days during the first world war. A slow fly past of several examples is magnificent.
The Puppeteer, based on the Sopwith Pup, continues to sell extremely well and can be fitted with vintage floats for those looking for a new dimension to the hobby.
We have now updated the Puppeteer kit (Puppeteer Mk2). The plans and instructions are fully detailed with isometric drawings showing all stages of construction. The front fuselage incorporates a greater use of die cut components and the engine now mounts on beech bearers. The external shape of the "Pup" remains the same as do the flying characteristics.
Another of Flair's great successes; the Magnattila captures the style and menace of the Fokker Eindecker. Fit it with a Williams Bros. Spandau machine gun, lurk around up sun, and just wait for an unsuspecting Puppeteer.
The Magnattila bites Puppeteers but doesn't bite pilots. It makes an ideal first aileron model and has the added advantage of style. Like the Puppeteer vintage floats can be fitted thus providing a perfect introduction to float plane flying.
We have now updated the Magnattila kit (Magnattila Mk2). The plans and instructions are fully detailed with isometric drawings showing all stages of construction. The front fuselage incorporates a greater use of die cut components and the engine now mounts on beech bearers. The external shape of the "Mag" remains the same as do the flying characteristics.
They say the nicest things come in small parcels; the Attila proves the point. Easy to transport with very forgiving flying characteristics, the Attila provides economical fun flying. The kit provides all materials for the 3 channel version but aileron conversion is detailed on the plan.
This is one of our earlier kits and as such it should be remembered that the instructions require the builder to interpret the full size plan more so than more modern kits. This said the kit builds easily and is a fine performer.
For those of you interested in electric powered models I have some news from Mr Brian England who recently converted an Attila. He says it flies superbly well at an all up weight of 3 lb 10 oz (1.65 kg). It was fitted with a Speed 600 and 2:1 ratio gearbox, a standard Master Airscrew plastic 11" x 6" prop, and a battery pack of 8 cells/1700 mAHr.

This large version of the DR1 looks closer to scale than it really is and can be finished to a very impressive standard if required. The original had no rigging wires so these need not bother those wanting authenticity. It is not a beginners model but anyone with reasonable experience will find its flight characteristics smooth and pleasurable. Construction is traditional and straightforward, only the timber is bigger.

The famous ace S E McCudden wrote of the SE5, "....a most efficient fighting machine, far and away superior to the enemy machines of that period...". The model is also impressive, manoeuvrable with good speed range and very forgiving in the hands of the less experienced. Late afternoon on a warm autumn day, a flat calm, 1/3 rd throttle, just see how smoothly you can fly the evening patrol. Our second photo here is a model made by Laurence Pocock of Tyseley. He has made a particularly fine job of the model and has added some extra detail such as flying wires to give a tremendous air of realism.

Another close to scale kit that can be built to extremely realistic standards, the D7 employs extensive liteply die-cutting providing interlocking construction for maximum ease of construction and accuracy. The wing sections employed impart incredible low speed handling. We have observed several of these models performing simulated dog fights in which they earned great credit.

The Flair Cub is a sport scale version of the famous Piper Cub with build up wings. It has been designed to be perfect for the newcomer to powered aero modelling and it is widely agreed that this is one of the best models for learning to fly R/C model aircraft. Thousands have been built and flown very successfully. The model is available in various configurations; foam wings/ built up. Finishing a model is a personal choice but you can see from the photos that both military and civil are attractive. The Cub can also be flown off floats adding to its appeal.
Kit Contains: Sheet and strip wood; Die cut parts; Engine mount; Cowl; Fuel tank; Hardware pack; Wheels; and highly detailed plans and instructions.
