March 12nd - Red Baron's "Fokker Dr. I": 750 pieces in motion

An amazing model, and and even more amazing presentation.

bad fuel

March 15th - Four Cox .049 models.

We bought some fresh fuel last season, but it will be stale by the time we fly again this summer. And thus, the cycle continues. Far Valley's most popular video!


March 8th - A Brief History of Plastic Model Kits.

A little longer than out usual fare, but a fascinating and well balanced glimpse at the history of plastic kit models.


March 1st - Micro RC Lazy Bee glider. Maiden flight.

A very different type of flying than we enjoy here in Northern Ontario. This tiny (19" span) micro glider is a fine performer in ridge lift. Nice catch!


Feb 23rd - Steve Daly's 1/3 scale Piper PA 18 Super Cub

This is one of Steve's beautifully detailed scale models, flying at the Soo Modellers 2018 Fun Fly. It is now on permanent display at the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre.


Feb 16th - Progress Aero Works (PAW) diesel engines

A short tour of the shop in the UK where they still build "vintage" PAW diesel engines. Built with care the "old fashioned" way - each engine is test run before delivery!
