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

    After a series of cold, windy and sometimes wet days the lure of a relatively warm and calm indoor arena drew a large crowd of pilots to ETSA Park Netball Centre in July. It was great to see some new faces who had an interesting variety of models to fly. There were some Blade 200 SRX’s, Night Vapors, several Ultra Micro Space Walkers, Mike flew an Ultra Micro PT-17, and we saw quite a few quadcopters in action. ...

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

    INDOOR FLYING IN MAY We had a reasonable number of fliers attend our meeting for May and, as usual Mike arrived with some new models with the emphasis on an electronic marvel of modern day inventions. My first pix is of the "receiver" which is mounted on his DX9 Transmitter and it receives pictures from the camera on his Drone or Quad. I think that you will agree with my name of "The Spider" when looking at the next shot of the quad in flight. The camera is mounted just behind the little yellow square and the quality of the reception was magnificent. We welcomed a very happy young gentleman, Mark, who must have been enjoying himself because of the smile that seemed to be an a...

  • 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...

  • Modelflight’s Engines Roar at Clipsal 500

    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.  ...

  • 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. 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 aris...
