Default 'Essential RC' at Airliner Treffen Show

3 Twin Turbine Concorde Airliners in Close Formation
This was something you would very rarely see, if ever ! Three magnificent large scale twin turbine powered Concordes. Built to perfection, featuring smoke and nose droop...and all flown expertly in close formation.

Ramy flying his Scheubeler\Castle powered scratch built Boeing 777-9X. Fulfilling a 10 year goal of flying a large scale electric powered airliner at a big show. Great job !

Welcome ! Lots more to share actually. I shot something like 6 hours of video...and all of it of scratch built RC aircraft. Never been to a show like it. I might be adding to this thread until the next scheduled Airliner Treffen Show in 2 years time.

Twin turbine powered Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird scorches down the strip at Airliner Treffen. Flown to perfection by Matthias BlaŖ with his father Walter, the builder of this jet, assisting on the flight line.

Eastern Lockheed L-1011 Tristar Airliner with RC Tug\Tractor
This Lockheed L-1011 Tristar would have been perfect by itself but when his son used the RC tug/tractor to pull it out to the runway...and pull it back to the pits...

Thanks for sharing Dominic!

Excellent videos, as always by you! You definitely get around Europe! Iíve watched a lot of videos from that field, since I am into airline transport aircraft. I truly do not understand why the Club operating the event doesnít do work on the runway. There have been several accidents and damage to the jets, due to the field being so rough. Do you have any insight as to why they donít try to improve the runway?

Sorry I don't. That is terrible to hear that some models were damaged due to it. Unfortunately small holes and bumps can affect models but not the full size. Maybe that's the reason...but even so it could have been resolved by a quick team walking up the strip and fill in holes. That's what I would have done if there were problems.

Anyone know what engine or engines are used in the L1011?
And what it weighs?

One engine (scratch-built) in the tail.
About 24 kg.

Thank you for the information.
For a few years now I have been planning a model of a HS Trident and I was planning on using just the centre engine. I have a Jets-Munt Merlin 160, but I also bought their 200 as my projected weight is about 30 kg. wingspan 4.1m, length 4.8m
I chose the Trident as it was the first jet that I flew, and also it hasn't been done as a model.
I also flew the Tristar.

Am I right in thinking that the model Tristar does not have high lift leading edges (slats), only trailing edge flaps?

One thing that is putting me off is building working slats, the other is finding somebody to build the undercarriage, which twists 90 degrees as it retracts.

Probably the best demonstration I have seen of Gunter Zielke's unique and innovative electronic smoke system. This also shows off the G-force initiation of the smoke system as the pilot performs some high speed aerobatics.

It could also be PCM L-1011? Still a full build.

I would not praise this electric smoke system (EL Smoke) too much. I've seen in fail on many fly-in's in Germany during the last years. It is not reliable and and a real pain in the ass to set up and maintain.

( I tried it myself and wasted a lot of money on it, so I know what I am talking about)

Edit: typos

Can only go on what I've seen Tuggs. And I've mostly only seen Gunter fly with the system. Think I've only ever seen this Eurofighter once before. Never seen a paying customer use it. It gets damn hot. I do know that!

The PCM L-1011 is much smaller.
Maybe 1:24 or so.
This one is 1:16

Do you know how big the mainwheels are?

It's not mentioned in that thread.
Maybe 70 - 80 mm

Keeping the memory of Concorde alive. This giant scale dual turbine powered, Concorde is about as realistic as it can get.

Do you have any information on the Ground Tug used to move the L1011 around. Chic
