  • 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 arise wh...

  • Modelflight Appearing at the Clipsal 500

    Update: Read our report on the Clipsal 500 here. We are thrilled to announce that Modelflight will be making an appearance at this year's Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, South Australia.

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

    INDOOR STARTED AGAIN IN JANUARY 2015. Dear Readers, Over the last couple of months, I have been moaning and groaning regarding the lack of fliers, lack of income which meant Michael and Model Flight had to make up the short fall for the monthly rent. As the gorgeous lady who presents information for Ford Finance says, "This is true."  Now, I hope, we have entered a new world with larger numbers of happy fliers. Personally it gave me a huge lift to have the Jacobsen family join us , and please permit me to itemise even further, and make special mention of Shaun. It seems that  for quite a number of years I have had the pleasure of following Shaun's model flying career in a somewhat mild, "behind the wings" manner, and as I had been moving in different circles , lost track over the last couple or more years.  So it was with great pleasure that I welcomed him to our magnificent Indoor Flying venue on Thursday, the 15th of January. My fi...
