    The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, October 2014
    WE FLY THROUGH OCTOBER INDOOR Although we were down a little on numbers on October 16th, it was none-the-less an enjoyable evening for all who were able to attend, and by half way through our scheduled flying time, all the "leedies" had departed and left us with the entire stadium. We welcomed Michael O'Reilly home after he and Janine had spent a quite lengthy time in foreign countries. I shan’t repeat details as they appeared in my September episode and, apart from that, I am inclined to "go all funny" with envy. Let it suffice, or begin, by saying that my first picture is of a very small quad that he flew that night. Too small for me - I couldn't see it when it...

    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 us...

  • The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, August 2014

    Well folks, as Mike is in USA until early October, I cannot see how anyone can get to Ben our Webmaster before that time so I shall just give you a somewhat stinted report on our August Indoor Meeting. As most of you would have gathered by now, we do have a special corner at the Netball Stadium that I prefer to call "The Fun Corner" named  in that manner because the usual quartet who fly there seem to enjoy themselves - well - perhaps a little more than others but usually at the expense of their models.  They have not filled their quota over the last two months and, in fact, John Oxby was the lone flier from that spot.  I am only including two pix with this month's story and they are both of  Fun Corner John. The first finds him looking somewhat forlorn  as he watches  the distant Entry door for the arrival of the rest of his troupe, all to no avail as they fail to appear. Beside J.O. are his 3 "Cracks." One is a super lightweight model beside his rather standard looking "Crack" and...

  • RC Jet Meeting at Monarto - July 2014 Event Report

    RC Jet Meeting at Monarto - July 2014 Event Report
    This is a special guest post from Mike O'Reilly, who was invited to attend the July 2014 Jet Meeting. On Saturday 26th July Todd Morris on behalf of the JASA organised a local jet meeting at the AMA field at Monarto. Sunny skies and light winds blessed an enthusiastic group of pilots who attended. The field was in perfect condition for the testing of some new jets. Greg Leigh had his Ripmax Excalibur there and had dialled it in on his new Spektrum DX18 Gen 2 transmitter. He had also fitted the Spektrum telemetry system with the JetCat sensor, airspeed sensor and battery monitoring. It was fantastic to hear this data from the transmitter whilst flying.

    The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, July 2014
    INDOOR AND AGAIN IN THE COLD Our July Indoor meeting, as one would expect, would turn out to be a freezer that is cold enough to freeze every little thing that one possesses so let me begin on a warm note. I  have made our good friend Richard Tapp the opening feature of my story. Richard has had a fairly torrid start to this year and it is most heartening to those of us who have known him for many years, to find him making his way back to the Indoor movement where he is most welcome. Even though he brought a model of his own, I handed him the transmitter for the tenth scale Griffon hovercraft. The Griffon Hovercraft works in the UK are the largest maker of these fascinating machines and they vary in size from the 30m (of which "our toy" is an exact scaled replica) to huge hovering barges...

    The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, June 2014
    June Indoor Still Improves with  New Times After discussions with several of our Indoor Fliers, it seems that they all credit the increase in flying numbers to the earlier flying times of 7.30p.m. to 9.30p.m. A heartening release from our worries as to why they seemed to be dropping off. I begin this "Phoenix" article with some intimate details on Mr. Robert McEwin.  No! Please don't send the children outside - they are not THAT intimate.  Pictured here as my opening shot, Bob is the Editor of the Masa-mag and he speaks with a lot of authority gleaned from his years of model making as well  as one of this State's premier fliers. He is a dedicated member of the Holdfast Club  where he flies frequently and also one of the leading local fliers at the Sensational Model  Aero Events at "Conny."

    RC Jet Action 2014 - Event Report
    The sky above Monarto played host to an extraordinary RC jet display last weekend. The annual RC Jet Action was hosted by the Adelaide Model Aerosport Club and what a show it was! Modelflight was fortunate enough to attend the spectacle and we have put together the below video which highlights all the action: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zenQ8EK6wFQ&w=713&h=401&showinfo=0&iv_load_policy=3&modestbranding=1&controls=0] RC Jet Action Images As you can see, there was a wide range of RC jets on show.
