We just uploaded a new plan, the awesome Panavia Tornado! Inspired by the Steve Shumate F-14, the Tornado features swing wings and awesome lines. The designer, Craig Clarkstone adds another awesome design to his growing catalog right here on Parkjets.
Oh snap, we just uploaded plans for what has to be sexist looking pusher ever. Check out the Bugatti P100, designed by Craig Clarkstone, this Bugatti is just so sleek. Beware, it's super fast and a bit heart pounding to fly, but damn, it looks too good out there in the air.
We just uploaded a new plan that already has us out in the garage preparing to cut this monster. The designer of the awesome YF-23, Viggen and others has dialed up the cool factor and brought this modern fighter to the hobby table....
You might have heard through the grapevine that Depron is going away in the very near future. Well, it looks like it will be getting a lot harder to get, at least in the U.S., as the domestic supplier is closing down its supply of flat 6mm depron....
We just were able to get up a strong endorsement of RC Powers RC Ultimate Package E-Book series. You can read all about it up in the "Rookie Pilots" tab up top. If you are looking for a comprehensive manual on RC flying, especially focused on parkjets, this is the E-book to get
The creator of the awesome Hotspot has created the next parkjet using much of the same design elements. Behold the Sonic! Twin stabs, canards, big delta wings and easy construction makes the Sonic an easy weekend build for hours of park flying....
Another day, another new plan. We just posted up the JA-37 Viggen. Now this monster features canards, big delta wings and killer looks. If you like the Saab Gripen, this one is a great evolution to the next level....
Parkjets got another great plan from Craig Clarkstone, the Red Arrows Hawk. If you are familar with Parkjets, you know his YF-23 is one of the best looking parkjet models on our site today. You know you are getting a quality design that looks good in the hanger and in the air. His plans contain everything you need, from decals, construction guides, and parts drawings.
Like all our plans, head over to our FREE PLANS page and download away. Be sure to show the designer some love too, and get to flying!
It's taken a while to get all done, but Parkjets has put on a new coat of paint and now it's better than ever. We have a new logo, new site, new everything. Let's keep it brief, but here are the main highlights....
Guys, we know ourselves. Many of you haven't even put together a Christmas list for your loved ones so they are likely strolling the local malls and big box stores looking for something that might catch their eye. That's why we men end up with cartoon character ties, wool socks, and some tool that we likely will never use. And that's on a good Christmas. A bad year we are looking a tin of popcorn and underwear. Don't let this be a bad year.
So we are here to help you out. Just forward this E-mail to whoever to clue them in on a couple of ideas.
Robertus, the same guy who has several awesome plans on Parkjets, just sent us over a throwback jet just in time for December. The YAK-17 Feather is a sleek looking Russian flyer with great lines and great performace.
Better yet, with this model, Robertus gives all you EDF nuts out there a frame to throw a 70mm fan into and get to the park.
Just a real short post folks, but today marks another milestone for Parkjets, we just reached the 3,000 Twitter followers. Now for those of you that might remember, we started last year really building up our social media effort and ended 2013 with about 2,000 followers. Well, now 7 months later we have now crossed the 3,000 mark and are not looking back.
If you are not following us on Twitter, what are you waiting for? We only send out cool pictures, announcement and other cool things you might want to see a few times a day. So come on follow @parkjetusa on Twitter and get with the program!
July is nearly half way over and we have not posted the Top 10 most downloaded plan on Parkjets for June yet! Well, time to fix that little oversight. We have some real changes to the Top 10 list this month, probably due to a better way we are now keeping track of the number of downloads, but much remains the same. Let’s get to it.
Let's get Chiggy! The lastest plan uploaded is another Robertus special, the Chiggy. It's a fantasy aircraft with a crazy design that makes the two wings and vertical stab all the same. Putting the prop on the front of the aircraft, in a traditional tractor configuration allows for awesome vertical take-offs. The Chiggy pairs nicely with the Hammerhead, and almost looks like a flying bomb.
We just uploaded another plan to the growing catalog of FREE PLANS right on our site. Now that brings the total number of free plans up to 135, which is a pretty big deal. We can’t believe we are only 15 plans away from crossing the big 150 milestone. It will be here soon enough. Building a good quality catalog is not easy and takes a lot of time, but with over 35,000 people downloading plans every month, we know there is always room for one more plan!
Getting a jump start in RC Airplanes is not easy. There are so many planes, so many designs, so many different opinions on the best way to get started and of course one big question we always get is, “How can I learn this stuff quickly?”
Nowadays, with busy schedules and fast paced lives, it can be hard to really get into a hobby and feel confident in what you are doing. That’s why we have the “New Pilots” section where we review and preview products that can help you get going in the hobby. Yes, if you purchase, we get a small commission, but that’s not why we endorse another company’s product, we do it because it works.
And now, we just finished updating the page with an all new V4 Pro Pack that includes new plans and some great beginner’s guides. So if you are wanting to get a jump start on RC flying along with some excellent plans, check it out.
