    The E-Flite Adagio RC Glider Coming Soon to Modelflight
    Singing Praises About the E-Flite Adagio Spring has finally arrived and the time is ripe to get outdoors and enjoy the weather without fear of rain clouds!

  • Pro Boat Rockstar Coming Soon to Modelflight

    Pro Boat Rockstar Coming Soon to Modelflight
    Pro Boat Creates A Star We have always been proud of the range of boats available at Modelflight, but this new one from Pro Boat is something else entirely. The Rockstar is a massive 48-inch catamaran; a similar style to that seen in the Miss Geico and Blackjack. By far, this is the largest RC boat we have ever seen and with its 26cc gas engine, you are able to clock up speeds of up to 65km/h. Best of all, the engine comes with the R.O.S.S. starter system, so you can get the boat running in a matter of seconds with the push of a button on the included Spektrum DX2E transmitter (and stop it just as quickly when you are done). This boat comes with a large-scale servo, which gives...
