8th of September 2005 - Review of the Multiplex EasyGlider
20th of August 2005 - Review of the EagleTree System Data Flight recorder
As part of the coming review of the EagleTree Wireless Seagull system, this current review covers the Flight Data Recorder, which is comparable to a real plane black box. The main difference is with a real plane black box, is that you would usually use it, when you don't crash your plane... :) and just want to enjoy having the opportunity to review what happened during the flight, or, send the data, live, to the Seagull system
A big entry into the 21st High Tech century
These 2 amazing pieces of hardware will be put under tests during the next few days.
The Flight Data Recorder is installed in the plane and records all the data anyone can think of, while the Seagull, as an option, can not only display, in real time, this data, but also trigger audible alarms that can tell you if you are too slow, too fast, going down to fast, if your battery is running low, etc... More details, videos and pictures to follow.

26th of July 2005 - World Models Piper Cub Test Flight presented by NOA AIRlines
If you like scale look and scale flight, this plane could really be your next one. Ido Lempert just performed its test flight last week-end. Don't expect full aerobatics on the 1st flight. but still a real pleasure to watch.
NOA AIR is made from Ido's girl child name. Pretty nice name for a plane that with a name like that, should survive anything, even the big flood :)

15th of July 2005 - Recommended item for flying safe: a Frequency Scanner
Tower Hobbies sells this great device, which coupled with an extra antenna can scan continuously the 72 band and detect whoever is using a channel. More info here. This will help to ensure that when you open your radio, you won't crash someone else's plane as well as checking if the channel you want to use is free.

27th of June 2005 - Windrider EasyGlider Review
The EasyGlider represents 2 different planes. One made by Multiplex, and the other by Windrider. This review is about the one made by Windrider. The plane was supposed to enter the competition for "Most Recommended 1st plane" but since it came without the motor, it can't enter this competition but still can undergo a complete review.
Rene Wallage did the building and review of this EPP plane.
Next will be to try to tow this plane, with the Mulitplex Magister.

20th of June 2005 - New Section Created "RC Electric Flying History"
This new section started with an open question on the Ezone, and many Ezoners provided so much interesting information that it makes sense to share it in an organized manner. Lot's of innovative and creative people, since about 50 years, contributed to what is Electric RC Flying today. This section is for the pleasure to learn about this part of history, as well as a special recognition to them, for their efforts.

6th of March 2005 - Coming Review: Flight Data Recorder
Who never dreamed to have a black box installed in our flying machines, in order to record, and later graphically display events that happen during the flight. Could be used for plain fun, as it is but for whoever wants to either teach students and show them where they can improve, or someone who actually want to improve his flying capabilities, this seems to be the answer and it goes far beyond this, adding G-Force captures, Altitude, and many more. Review of this item will show how far this goes and how well and precise.

14th of February 2005 - JETI new ESC Programmer and ESC on the Tests
13th of February 2005 - "Hobbico SuperStar EP" Review Online
The Box says "Fly in 20 minutes"
This plane was recommended to me, in order to add it to the coming "Recommended plane as a 1st plane" Article. Just got it, will be able to add it to the comparison table as well as doing its review.
4th of February 2005 - Pre Take-off Checklist done
This checklist was build
in coordination with Ezoners, and worldwide contributions from Electric RC
planes flyers. It is intended to provide a short list, with reminders on the
critical few items to think about and check, before any take-off.
It was left in a Microsoft Word format as moving it to PDF or GIF decreased the quality when printed. Also, anyone can then customize it if needed, to it's own need.
2nd of February 2005 - 3 beautiful videos with OnBoard Video Cameras
24th of January 2005 - How to reduce plane crashes ?
2 Ezone Threads were just started on this topic.
The 1st thread will provide like the most TOP 5, common reasons, and we will try to write some articles to help as much as possible, prevent these
For the 2nd thread, a Check List will be build, in some little time, just the time to gather as much feedback as possible on the Ezone, as what experienced people think on this. Then, this checklist will be build as a PDF and JPG files, for anyone to download and tape, behind their radio.
Hopefully, this will save few planes around.
