    The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, September 2014
    Our last Indoor night at the Netball Stadium had a couple of surprises. Firstly, we were missing a number of usual fliers and secondly, after just ten minutes we had the entire stadium at our disposal until Hugh, the Duty Manager decided that he should save some of the huge expense that is entailed through having the big lights on throughout the stadium. My first picture this month is of Anthony Steele who, each month, makes the utmost use of whatever flying time is available and you see him, setting up some of his models, prior to his night's flying. His models are always magnificently presented with multi coloured L.E.D.'s adorning them and making quite a spectacular use...

  • Hangar 9 Super Cub Arrives at Modelflight

    Hangar 9 Super Cub Arrives at Modelflight
    The Majestic Hangar 9 Super Cub Of all the model planes that we have discussed on the Modelflight blog, this one has got to be the largest, and arguably the most iconic! The Hangar 9 Super Cub is a 1/4-scale plane with excellent details. It is modelled on the Piper PA-18 Cub, the adventurous aircraft originally created in 1949. Staying true to its roots, Hangar 9 have accurately recreated this plane with several features that we would like to outline. To begin with, every line and curve on this model is an authentic replication of the full-size...

  • Blade RC Helicopter Kits at Modelflight

    Blade RC Helicopter Kits at Modelflight
    Blade have always been known for producing high quality RC helicopters. While the majority of these models come ready-to-fly (RTF), today we wanted to look at two new helis at the opposite end of the spectrum. The 600 X and 550 X kits are great for pilots who want to build a heli to their own specifications. The great thing about these kits, though, is that they give you a very solid foundation for building this dream machine. Let's look at each kit in turn. Blade 550 X ...

  • Which Carisma Car is Right for Me? A Modelflight Buyer's Guide

    Which Carisma Car is Right for Me? A Modelflight Buyer's Guide
    We recently spoke about the range of ECX RC cars available at Modelflight in a buyer's guide we published a few weeks ago. In this same spirit, we wanted to talk about an equally popular car brand, renowned for making vehicles that are of great value for money. Carisma have a wide selection of remote control cars that can easily be driven by beginners. Much like ECX, though, a common Carisma conundrum is being spoilt for choice. Which Carisma car is right for me? In this blog post, we hope we can help you find the answer to that very question. We will discuss each Carisma car with regards to the kind of driving they are suited for. Let's begin by looking at some rally cars. Rally Cars...
