  • Indoor Flying with the Phoenix in January

    Indoor Flying with the Phoenix in January
    WE COMMENCE 2013 AT THE NETBALL STADIUM... Whilst the evening started off in a somewhat mild manner, it did end up being a fascinating night of indoor flying, as they usually do. Netball SA’s Duty Manager, Adam was back with us after what has been a fairly long break when he had been rostered on other shifts that just did not coincide with our flying times. Welcome back Adam. I open the photographic portion of this months story with a shot of, not only the box but also of the latest baby heli which, although only released in the U.S.A. at present, it will be showing its pretty little face in our leading hobby shops in the fairly near future, so watch for it.   It is called the Blade (what other na...

    Hangar 9 Releases the Stunning Messerschmitt Bf 109F-2
    At Modelflight, we take a lot of pride in our range of scale This 60-size ARF is certainly no ultra-micro and you will find that its range of features is just as large.  Made from an all-wood construction, the Messerschmitt incorporates two Selig airfoils with just the ideal amount of washout, letting you soar at high speeds while still performing graceful landings.  Additionally, Hangar 9 has included a four-section flap system, giving you a greater range of speed and manoeuvrability. One of the key features of the Messerschmitt is its ability to combine great performance with accurate scale detail.  The construction of this RC plane allows for its curved surfaces to be fully sheeted.  This not...
