Flying Machine

This Fast, Agile, Aerobatic Airplane is coming in ARF form!



















ERC's 'Don Muddiman' Flying Machine! - The Flying Machine was designed in 1983 by Don Muddiman of the Cloud Dancers International Air Show
Team. Sponsored by Byron's Originals and Zap, they had the opportunity to show the spectacular aerial magic of Don Muddiman and his incredible Flying Machine to spectators all over the world.

Despite the first response of many, this isn't a HOTS variant...not even close. It was designed prior to the HOTS, and for a completely different flight envelope. This airplane can do 100+ MPH horizontal snaps to a complete stop, then fly away. The light wing loading allows for cool vertical hand launching. It can survive full throttle dives into snaps, something that would destroy most conventional aircraft.

This 'Incredible Flying Machine' is capable of blurring speeds, knife edge flight from horizon to horizon, knife edge loops, and most other forward flight manuevers you might throw at it. With reduced control throws and speed, this airplane slows to a wonderful sport flyer, easily flown by an intermediate or better pilot.

-> East R/C Flying Machine A.R.F. -   Price TBA

* East R/C spent much time, money, and testing on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation of the Flying Machine ARF prototypes. When the economy took a dive beginning in '08, we had to divert our attention to the R/C components we fabricate in our machine shop, and allow someone else to move forward with this project. Condor Models is now working with protytpes, and should have these in ARF form very soon. It is our hopes to have them available through East R/C as well at that time. WE HAVE NO ETA ON THIS PLANE AT THIS TIME, WE CURRENTLY ARE NOT ACCEPTING PRE-ORDERS* You can pre-register for one at: http://www.GetMyFM.com/
