  • Introducing Moustache Model Works DHC-2 Beaver Builders Kit

    Click here to check out the Moustache Model Works DeHavilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver on our website. Build your own DHC-2 Beaver  Building RC model airplanes from kits are making a comeback in the RC hobby. Nothing can beat the satisfaction that comes from successfully flying a model you built yourself! Unfortunately, most kits today were designed in the days before modern CAD systems, leaving much to be desired in terms of parts fit, ease of assembly, and at times even basic engineering. Moustache Model Works was established to address this growing niche in the hobby market. By applying modern 3D CAD to the design process, they create kits that remain true to established design and construction principles, but that ensure accurate parts fit, ease of assembly, and scale fidelity.

  • Popular Radian RC Glider Turns 10

    Popular Radian RC Glider Turns 10
    Way back in 2009 Horizon Hobby introduced their first electric powered glider, the ParkZone Radian which was a huge success by any measure. This simple 2 metre, 3 channel foam glider was quick to assemble, light and soared in the weakest of thermals. What more could a budding RC Glider pilot ask for? Owing some of its design cues to the 1974 Hobie Hawk with an elliptical wing plan form and elliptical dihedral, the Radian has a distinctive look in the sky. Tens of thousands of RC pilots have enjoyed the easy flying characteristics and great soaring abilities of the Radian. RC glider clubs all over the world hold one model competitions for the Radian including the Southern Soaring League in Adelaide. Up to 20 pilots launch their models on the sound of the hooter and climb under power to 100 metres where the motor is turned off. The task is to fly...

  • Phoenix Models Scanner RC Plane - Product Review

    Phoenix Models Scanner RC Plane - Product Review
    A modern day classic The Phoenix Models Scanner 46 size ARF model hit Australian shores in early 1998. It was the brainchild of the late Tony Farnan and Phoenix Models who saw the need for a ‘second’ model for the beginner to transition to once they achieved solo status. The Scanner was awarded the Best Hobby Product of the Year at the 1998 ATA Toy and Hobby Fair and since then thousands of MAAA modellers have successfully flown a Scanner. This low wing model features a thick airfoil, parallel chord and a long tail moment which makes for very forgiving flight characteristics. It has proven to be an ideal model for the new flier who wants to graduate to something that is a bit more agile than the typical high wing trainer. Coupled with an OS 46 engine it makes for a great flying spo...

  • Yuneec Q500 Typhoon Drone - Flight Reviews

    Yuneec Q500 Typhoon Drone - Flight Reviews
    Yuneec Q500 Reviews Two of our staff members, Mike and Matt, were fortunate enough to fly the new Yuneec Q500 drone the other day. We spoke to them shortly after their flights to get their thoughts. Here is what they had to say: "This mid-size quadcopter is really solid in the air. Having tested it in gusty winds up to 25km/h, we were really happy with the ability of the Q500 to maintain its position and height. Challenging conditions and it performed brilliantly. And the video recorded on the CGO2-GB in these choppy conditions was outstanding. That gimbal works very well." - Mike "The...
