  • The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, March 2015

    Whilst I am not providing captions for this month's pictures (most are self-explanatory) I will say that i am leading off with a picky of Hamish Scott. These days he is fairly busy at work and his appearances at Indoor are getting to be quite rare. So it was with much pleasure and excitement that he, once again, entertained us with his brilliant heli flying. Do you know, dear readers, age, and I am speaking of senior years, make it a little difficult to follow Hamish's model movement as they are  so rapid and precise. Thank you once again Hamish. It was pleasing to see that you also had time to speak to a couple of...

  • The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, February 2015

    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.

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 wh...
