Classic Aero-TV: Humongous R/C Aerobats - Aerobeez' Monster Aerobatic Models

From 2016: Fly Aerobatics With Your Feet Firmly Planted On Terra-Firma...

While at AMA Expo 2016, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, delved into the sport of aerobatic modeling. As an aerobatic pilot himself, Jim recognized that model aircraft can do much more than a full scale aircraft, and he stopped by the Aerobeez exhibit to bring us an update on these amazing specialized model aircraft. Jim talked with Ray Jin, the co-owner of Aerobeez. When asked how long it takes to develop one of these aerobatic model aircraft, Jin said it can take between a year and two years to get one ready for the market. He goes on to talk about the people that help develop these extraordinary aircraft, and you’ll get some background as to how they are built.

Classic Aero-TV: Bird's Eye View - A Model Aviation FPV Primer

From 2015: Pretty Darned Close To Being RIGHT There... FPV Offers Exciting Possibilities

While at eFest 2015, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, took the time to talk with Jack Marck, the foam category marketing manager for Horizon Hobby. When we use the word “foam,” we’re talking about extremely light-weight RC model airplanes that are constructed out of various types of plastic foams. The subject of this discussion was all about FPV. “First Person View,” is referred to in the modeling world as FPV. In this type of RC model flying the pilot controls the plane by actually viewing the flight as if being positioned inside the cockpit. It’s about as real as you can get and still have both feet firmly planted on the ground.

Disappointed! COVID Concerns Ground DeLand 'Flyway to Highway' Event

Well... They Tried...

The ANN crew is crestfallen to receive official confirmation that COVID concerns have again halted a fine sport aviation event from celebrating all that is good about recreational aviation. And face it.... we NEEDED to get out and play a bit. The January 30th DeLand 'Flyway to Highway' event, under the direction of the folks who conduct the annual DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase, was designed to be an interim event to help the industry gather a bit before their main event next November, BUT, it is now officially OFF. The decision makers have watched the news, seen the infection rate keep up at a breathtaking pace, and the vaccination rate struggle along slowly, and decided now is not the time for such an event. We get it... but we hate it.

Classic Aero-TV: Avilution at OSH2019-Innovating NextGen Avionics Strategies

From 2019: Company Partners With Multiple Aircraft Manufacturers For OEM Avionics

Avilution is re-thinking the way avionics panels are presented using an innovative software-driven system to display information that is configurable by the pilot. Company founder and CEO Mark Spencer told Aero-TV at AirVenture 2019 that Avilution approaches avionics as a software problem rather than as a hardware problem, which gives them a lot of flexibility and allows them to bring products to market more quickly than a more traditional approach. Avilution came to the notice of many in the industry a few years ago with their unconventional ‘UnPanel’ that made it’s debut in the Zenith CH750 Super Duty STOL airplane.
