  • The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, August 2014

    Well folks, as Mike is in USA until early October, I cannot see how anyone can get to Ben our Webmaster before that time so I shall just give you a somewhat stinted report on our August Indoor Meeting. As most of you would have gathered by now, we do have a special corner at the Netball Stadium that I prefer to call "The Fun Corner" named  in that manner because the usual quartet who fly there seem to enjoy themselves - well - perhaps a little more than others but usually at the expense of their models.  They have not filled their quota over the last two months and, in fact, John Oxby was the lone flier from that spot.  I am only including two pix with this month's story and they are both of  Fun Corner John. The first finds him looking somewhat forlorn  as he watches  the distant Entry door for the arrival of the rest of his troupe, all to no avail as they fail to appear. Beside J.O. are his 3 "Cracks." One is a super lightweight model beside his rather standard looking "Crack" and...

    The E-Flite UMX Pitts S-1S Arrives at Modelflight
    The Pitts Hits the Target The full-size Pitts Special 1S is an icon in the field of aerobatic planes and now you have the opportunity to fly this aerobatic wonder in the most accessible fashion! E-Flite have turned the aircraft into an ultra-micro model; maintaining its ability to perform stunning aerial feats, but in a size that allows you to fly in your own backyard.

  • Pro Boat Rockstar Coming Soon to Modelflight

    Pro Boat Rockstar Coming Soon to Modelflight
    Pro Boat Creates A Star We have always been proud of the range of boats available at Modelflight, but this new one from Pro Boat is something else entirely. The Rockstar is a massive 48-inch catamaran; a similar style to that seen in the Miss Geico and Blackjack. By far, this is the largest RC boat we have ever seen and with its 26cc gas engine, you are able to clock up speeds of up to 65km/h. Best of all, the engine comes with the R.O.S.S. starter system, so you can get the boat running in a matter of seconds with the push of a button on the included Spektrum DX2E transmitter (and stop it just as quickly when you are done). This boat comes with a large-scale...
