Hannibal Kit

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.

Specifications:
Type: Sport scale monoplane
Span: 91" (2310 mm
Engines: .60 min. 2 strokes, .75 min. 4 strokes
Radio: 4 channel
Weight: 5 - 6.5 kg

Center of Gravity Position: On the main spar. Rating:Build Time-Average , Build Skill-Beginner to Average
Flying Skill-Competent, Instructions-Average

Kit Contents: Strip and sheet wood, Aluminium cowl, Pre cut parts, Hardware pack, Plans and instructions.

Bristol Beaufighter Electric

The "Whispering Death" packed an incredible punch, four 20 mm cannon and six .303" machine guns. This heavy armament soon became justly feared by enemies on all fronts during WWII. Initially many thought that the Beaufighter was an aeroplane too heavy and too large to be successful but this fear was dispelled when it was found that the bulk was ideal to accommodate the early night fighter radar that was available. The prototype Beaufighter first flew in July 1939 with the first ten production models reaching the RAF in August 1940. It was a very adaptable aircraft and served in night fighter, ground strafing, and torpedo bombing roles. Truly a complete aeroplane. Construction: The construction of the Beaufighter is conventional comprising a built up wing and fuselage. Mouldings are supplied for the nacelles, cockpit and nose cone. As with all electric powered models weight is extremely important. The weight of batteries, motors, speed controllers and radio gear is fixed to a large degree and cannot be reduced. We flew the model at an all up weight of 2.4 kg (5.2lb) using standard servos and 2 off 7 cell 1800mAHr battery packs. Its performance and duration was extremely good; it flew like fighter. You could save some weight with miniature servos and 7 cell battery packs made from smaller cells but do remember to build light. We have designed the structure as light as we think practical; don’t be tempted to add weighty extras. Hardware: A full hardware pack is supplied to complete the structure, including power cable for the motors. A twin power pack comprising speed controller, wiring, plugs/sockets, motors, props and prop adaptors is available separately. General Construction Notes: This is not a beginners model but if you have some experience you should find it straightforward to build. 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. Covering and Finishing This model should be covered with tissue and dope ideally although heat shrink film can be used. Do not use heat shrink fabric. If you use tissue first fill any small dents with a lightweight filler and sand smooth, (Flair Red Devil is ideal); then apply a coat of 50:50 dope/thinners to the bare structure and sand gently to remove nibs. Apply damp tissue with 50:50 non shrinking dope/thinners. Give the structure another coat of 50:50 dope /thinners and sand very lightly before applying your colour scheme. Remember not to add too much paint. Non shrinking dope does not cause distortion and prevents the starved horse effect. Our model was finished in Flair Spectrum Paints; matt azure blue underneath and matt dark earth / light stone on top. The matt azure blue is a mix of white with 20% light blue. The light stone is a mix of cub yellow with 20% dark earth. Apply the decals where shown on the wing drawings. Cut close to the outline remove the backing and smooth down from one edge working across to avoid bubbles underneath. The Power System. This model has been designed for twin speed 600 size motors. The motors and batteries are connected in series. The Flair Twin Speed Controller is ideal for this model providing many features not found on other units. For complete details of the speed controller click here. Note this Speed Controller is no longer available but from the spec. you can source an equivalent. Use 9x5 Slimprops on this model. Balancing and Control Set Up. It is crucial to balance the model correctly. With the model fully assembled in its ready for flight state support it on your fingers at 90 to 100 mm (3.5" to 4") from the wing centre leading edge. The model should balance slightly nose down, (about 3 degrees), in a gliding attitude. Move the front battery forward or back to achieve this. This should be all you need to do but if further adjustment is necessary move the elevator servo and or receiver. Our model utilised BEC circuitry and therefore had no receiver batteries; if you use these then they will give you further scope for adjustment. As an absolute last resort correct the CG position with lead installed at the furthest point forward or back that you can get it. Set the control throws to: Ailerons: +/- 16 mm Elevators +/- 10 mm If you do not get exactly these figures do not worry; try to get within 3 mm (1/8"). Flying. The Beaufighter flies very smoothly and those with previous experience of aileron models will have no difficulty whatsoever. Get someone to launch the model for you until you are fully familiar with it. It should be given a good running push into wind and should leave the launchers hand horizontal. Let the model gain some speed by flying level for a few seconds and then climb out. Landing is simple, just pick a smooth patch of grass and flair out onto it. Specification. Type: Twin electric powered near scale monoplane Span 1590 mm (62.5") Weight 2.4 kg (5.2 lb) Wing Area 38.4 dm2 (595 in2) Wing Loading 0.063 kg/dm2 (20 oz/ft2) Motors 2 x Speed 600 or similar Batteries 2 x 8.4V, 1800 mAHr Radio 3 Channel minimum standard equipment. Speed Controller 20 Amp, 16.8V for motors wired in series.

Black Magic Kit

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. Specification. Type: Vintage high wing sport model Span 60" Engine .19 - .25 2 strokes .30 4 strokes Radio 2/3 channel Weight 4 lbs. 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.


Sorry, temporarily out of stock, in production as of November 2014 per Flair. Estimated replenish date 90 Days.

Bristol F2b Two Seat Fighter (WW 1)

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.

Type: Near scale biplane
Span 76" (1985 mm)

Patriot

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. Specification. Type: Low wing sport aerobatic model Span 61" (1550 mm) Engines .35-.60 2 strokes .48-.75 4 strokes Radio 4 channel Weight 7 lbs

PT-17 Stearman By Flair

NOTE: Nobody is more frustrated than I that Flair has not restarted production of this kit. We get emails weekly about this. We leave it listed because they say it will be out soon. Soon seems to never get here however. Before you email on this subject (please do not), let us give you the answers we give over and over and over to everybody. Q: Is the kit available? A:No. Q:When will the kit be available? A:We have no idea when the kit will be available. Q:Can you inquire as to when the kit will be available? A:We have many times, they do not answer this question. Q:What is the delay? A:We have no idea. Q:How will I know when the kit is available? A:We will remove this note when the kit is back in stock. Q:Is there anything else you know about this kits availability? A:Nothing. Q:Should I email you about this from time to time? A:Are you serious? Those on the back order list will be notified ASAP if and when they ever here.

I have spoken to a number of Stearman pilots and have concluded that the Flair model flies in much the same manner as does the full size. This is very gratifying and justifies the work involved in producing such a kit. If scale modelling is about recreating the full size in miniature with accurate shape, finish and flying performance then in our opinion the Flair Stearman has achieved this objective.
As stated above the Stearman flies much like the real thing. It requires the use of rudder for take off and for smooth accurately aligned turns. It requires a shallow dive prior to aerobatics such as loops, rolls and stall turns and it takes off in a sedate manner after a scale looking run. These notes apply to our prototype fitted with a Laser 150 which is plenty of power for those with reasonable flying experience. If you are a pilot who regularly "gets the nose up" or if you are in the habit of having engines go sick just after take off then more power is recommended such as the Laser 180 or 200 twin.
Take off Line up the model into wind. Get your assistant to restrain the model whilst you rev the engine to clear it, then bring it back to idle. Ask your assistant to leave the runway. Apply a little up elevator and open the throttle gently to full power. Apply rudder to correct any swing. As the model starts to accelerate gently release the up elevator and the tail will rise. Build up speed on the ground and then gently apply a little up elevator to lift the model into the air. Climb out in a straight line until at a sensible height. Note any tendencies to yaw, pitch or roll.
Trimming Turn into a circuit and adjust the trims to give a well balanced straight and level flight at slightly reduced power, (Laser 150, more powerful engines can be throttled back more). Don’t be tempted to check the stall yet; get a feel for the sensitivity of the controls first. If the model is very sensitive on elevators then you may have a rearward CG or elevator throws which are too large. If this is the case proceed to a landing being careful not to loose to much speed on finals. Landing.
This model has a high drag factor. If you cut the throttle to idle it will come down at a very steep angle. Enter a standard rectangular circuit with about half power and assess the sink rate. Adjust the power level, (not too low), so that by the time you are on finals the model is sinking in a nice straight line towards the threshold. Combine the flare out with progressive throttle reduction at about 1 meter altitude and allow the model to sink onto the runway. You will probably find that you still have significant power on even when the wheels touch. Cut the throttle to idle and control the yaw with rudder. Bring the model to a stop and taxi it to the side of the runway. Cut the engine; DO NOT TAXI BACK INTO THE PITS, this is dangerous and should never be attempted.
Tips for realistic flight.
Gentle aerobatics can be performed by the Stearman, loops, axial rolls, barrel rolls, stall turns etc. Unless you are using a large engine these will require full power and a shallow dive to look perfect. Make neither the dive too steep nor the turns too sharp.
Rudder is an important control on the Stearman and should be used in turns. Try a turn without using rudder. You will find that the tail appears to drop as you bank the model – adverse yaw, just like the real thing. We have suggested aileron differential for the control throws which helps, but the proper way to turn is with rudder and aileron. Try this. Initiate a turn with a little RUDDER, then follow with ailerons and of course elevator to maintain the altitude. See how much smoother the turn looks without the tail dropping. You will also find that you loose less speed in the turn and the model maintains its altitude more easily.
When you have mastered flying the Stearman smoothly you will be delighted how realistic it looks and will be proud to display it regularly at your club.

Baronette Kit

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.

Span: 49" (1245 mm)
Engine: .25-.40 2 strokes, .35-.50 4 strokes
Radio: 4 channel

Legionaire Kit

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.

Specifications:
Type: Sport scale sesquiplane
Span: 52" (1320 mm)
Engines: .25-.40 2 strokes, .35-.50 4 strokes
Radio: 4 channel
Weight: 6 lbs

Puppeteer MkII Kit

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.

Specifications:
Type:Sport scale vintage biplane.
Span: 60" (1525 mm)
Engines: .30-.45 2 strokes, .40-.60 4 strokes
Radio: 4 channel
Weight: 8 lbs

Radical RC comments: All of the Flair kits are supurb quality. You won't be disapointed with this one! Even includes spun aluminum cowl.

Magnattila MKII Kit

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.

Attila Kit

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.

Specifications:
Type: Sport scale vintage monoplane
Span: 46" (1170 mm
Engines .10-.25 2 strokes, .20-.30 4 strokes
Radio: 3/4 channel

Fokker Tri-Plane Kit

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.

Specifications:

Type: Sport scale triplane
Span: 73" (1855mm)
Engines: .90 min. 2 strokes, .90-1.20 4 stroke
Radio: 4 channel
Weight: 11 - 14 lbs

S.E.5A Kit

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.

Specifications:
Type: Sport scale vintage biplane.
Span: 51" (1295 mm)
Engines: .35-.45 2 strokes, .40-.60 4 strokes

Fokker D7 Kit

Another close to scale kit that can be built to extremely realistic standards, the D7 employs extensive lite ply 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.

Specifications: Type: Near scale biplane
Span: 61" (1550 mm)
Weight: 3.6 kg
Engines: .40-.60 2 strokes, .48-.80 4 strokes
Radio 4 channel
Control throws: Rudder +/- 40mm, Elevator +/- 17mm, Ailerons +/- 13mm.

Alexander Schleicher K8

The full size K8, from the famous Alexander Schleicher factory, first flew in 1957 and was a derivation of the K6 but with a structure similar to that of the two seater K7. It is a robust 15 m glider ideal for club use with good flying characteristics and is particularly useful in weak thermal conditions. We have chosen to model the K8b, believing that the larger canopy on this variant makes for a more stylish looking glider. The model is accurate in profile having been scaled using works drawings from Schleicher, but deviates from the scale wing section. We opted to use a Quabec 15% thick, 3 % camber section. The tip section of the wing, (from the inboard end of the ailerons outward), incorporates a transition from 3% camber to 5% camber with washout. This ensures that the whole wing works all the time and that the stall is well behaved. We have flown the model at the basic weight 9.5 lbs, as built with Solartex covering, and also with 3.5 lb of ballast. In both cases the handling is superb but with greater penetration ballasted. The model should be ideal for those looking for a large scale glider with character as an alternative to the more modern glass ships. The wing is conventional, separating on the centre line, with sheeted D box and hardwood webbed spar. All ribs and additional shaped parts are die cut from liteply. CNC machined parts are supplied for scale double acting airbrakes. The fuselage is a self jigging construction made from die cut liteply parts to which stringers and longerons are added. The nose is a glass fibre moulding. The tailplane is bolted on to enable removal for transport if required. Hardware: All necessary hardware is supplied including 2 releasable towhooks, (aerotow and winch), flat strip/brass tube wing joiner, cockpit canopy, wheel, and CNC machined airbrakes. The airbrakes will be also available as a separate catalogue item for other models. Specification. Type: 1/4 scale glider, Alexander Schleicher K8 Span: 3.75 m (148") Weight: 4.3 kg (9.5lb) Radio: standard equipment Servos 1 Rudder, 1 Elevator, 2 Ailerons*, 2 Air Brakes @, 1 Tow Releases @ (* mini servos are easier to fit for the ailerons but not essential)(@ optional but parts for brakes and 2 tow releases are supplied in the kit).
