The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, February 2016

We had our best attendance at the Indoor meeting at ETSA Park in February for many months. There were foamie shock flyers, small quadcopters, indoor helicopters and foamie warbirds doubling up as pylon racers and one lonely hand launch glider.

We were very fortunate to have the stadium to ourselves after 8:00 when all the netballers left. It was really good to see members from Holdfast, Skyhawks, AMA, Noarlunga and SSL in attendance.

Chris Brislin who is one of Australia’s finest IMAC pilots was having a lot of fun with an E-flite UMX Whipit hand launch glider until it decided to park itself on a roof truss very high up in the stadium. And you can’t slow down 3 of SA’s best pylon racers even when walls and the ceiling restrict the airspace. Shaun and Jarryd Jacobsen spent the night chasing Greg Leigh’s 2S powered brushless P-47 Thunderbolt.

Please note that the Indoor Flying schedule for the rest of the year is still under review with Netball SA due to State League matches being played on a Thursday night starting in April. Watch this space.
