  • Another Night at the Netball Stadium with The Phoenix

    Another Night at the Netball Stadium with The Phoenix
    For all those who were able to attend Indoor Flying in September, you shared with all in attendance a most interesting and exciting evening, To really commence at the beginning, I must mention our latest import and his input, thanks to Model Flight. The name Chris Brislin would not mean a great deal to most people who reside over the border in S.A. but to American residents of Tucson, Arizona, a large number of them would realize that Chris flew himself, not only into American history, but into World history by gaining a podium finish in the Tucson Shootout competitions. Yes dear friends, if you look at my first picture of Chris, please realize that you are looking at, and those who fly at future Indoor Meets at ETSA Park are flying with, the aerobatic model flier who is in the top few...

  • Mid-Airs a Feature at June Indoor RC Flying

    Mid-Airs a Feature at June Indoor RC Flying
    No! I am not able to give a reason for so many mid-airs on this night. It was by no means our largest number of fliers and it would be impossible to pin-point whether it was more frequent among the Micro models or the larger “Foamies” for it was spread fairly evenly among all aircraft.  They did happen and it was a shame for those involved and the ensuing work that would be necessary for their repair. A lot of interest was shown in Mike O’Reilly’s micro jet  Mig. (Please see my first picture above.) It was an attractive little aircraft to say the least and with no external propeller, its lines were particularly clean.  Some of our friends had seen this little “whiz ship” in action at Monarto’s Jet Day and they expected it to be...
