The skies above Waterloo Corner, South Australia will come alive this April for the 2015 Adelaide Golden Era Air Races. Held on April 18 and 19, the event will feature over 80 model planes from all over Australia. Modelflight is proud to be supporting this event, as we have done since its inception in 1997. In fact, some of our staff members will be participating in the races themselves! Mike will be competing in the Golden Era class with a Mew Gull and in the Reno class with a Hangar 9 P-47 Thunderbolt. Klaus is also participating in the the Formula One class.
We are also pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring a ParkZone T-28 event which will be held on a shortened course at various stages throughout the weekend. The double points final race is a thrill

RC Radios - Which One To Choose?
Remote control radios - the essential tool for any model pilot. You are no doubt aware of that a great radio can lead to great performance. If you are just starting out and are about to buy your first RC radio, you are probably also aware that you are spoiled for choice! With so many different radios from different brands, choosing the best one for you can be difficult. That's why we wrote this blog post - to help you find the transmitter that is right for you.

It was a huge weekend for Modelflight, making our first appearance at the V8 Supercars Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, South Australia. As a proud sponsor of the Brad Gallard #454 race team, we worked in conjunction with Toyo Tires to run a come and try race event at their R/C Arena. Clipsal 500 attendees (in addition to some special guests), were able to drive RC trucks from Traxxas across a custom-built clay track. The trucks featured at the event were the Traxxas Slash VXL and the Dakar Edition Slash.

INDOOR AT ETSA PARK IN FEBRUARY 2015
To my dear flying friends...do you find me appealing? Well I am appealing to you all once again, although not quite as seriously as I was last month. Mike O'Reilly and I, your humble scribe find that we have to push, push in an effort to get all our friends back to ETSA Park. You would have more about which to complain if you were in a Maternity Ward - I only asked you to push twice. You all know, as well as I that we are most fortunate to have our flying facility. We had some Interstate visitors join us for a while this month and they had nothing but praise for our good fortune in having our magnificent venue - a venue that does cost us a considerable sum to visit each month. We must keep our numbers up to maintain our payments and, whilst Model Flight, through its General Manager, Mike O'Reilly, has been picking up the shortfall often, I think the time may arise when they might have to withdraw their help. As you all
