    Chuck's E-Flite Carbon Z Yak 54 Unboxing and Demo
    Our friend, Chuck T. Seeker recently produced some great videos on the Carbon Z Yak 54 from E-Flite.  We wanted to share them with you below. In the first one, Chuck unboxes the Carbon Z Yak 54.  As you will see, he goes into great detail about how the plane's Carbon Z airfame sets it apart from balsa models.  Chuck also talks about the Yak 54's centre of gravity, ailerons, rudder and flaps.  Additionally, you will see how Chuck set up this E-Flite RC plane for its maiden performance.  The video can be seen below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8j4x_x0at4 As...

  • 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...

    The most versatile RC Ultra-Micro ever is IN TRANSIT! The E-flite® UMX™ Carbon Cub SS is a scale model of the modern Cub Crafters light-sport aircraft and it will be available in store by the end of May 2012.

    Chuck's Gee Bee Journey
    A few weeks back, Chuck decided he could not wait on the arrival of the E-flite Gee Bee R2 any longer, he drove off to OMP, the Australia distributer of all things E-flite, to see the shipment arrive in the warehouse.  He then visited the Modelflight retail shop in Goodwood to pick up his plane. He also didn't neglect to let us see this little baby in action!  Here are his comments and the video of the E-flite Gee Bee in action! "well here is a video i took a few weeks back, been busy so only just got round to editing it. It's the ...

  • Indoor Flying Aerotow.... Attempt 1

    Indoor Flying Aerotow.... Attempt 1
    At our last indoor flying session in Adelaide we tried to do an Aero-tow, but unfortunately, our stadiums are not high enough or long enough, so we didn't have too much luck. The RC Glider could not get above the carbon cub in the short flying area we had, but hey! we gave it a go and the last try we did get a take of and a release. Next time we will try it outside with plenty of space, still worth a look though if your craving the new E-flite UMX Aero-tow combo. Watch Mike and Hamish's attempt here:...

    Indoor Flying at Netball Stadium, Adelaide (ETSA Park) in March 2012
    If flying numbers meant anything so early in the year, then we are in for a bumper crop which is, ofcourse, good news for The Southern Flying League, for we may help them purchase some items that they, perhaps, otherwise may not. Might I even venture to add that our name may even appear on a panel of their new extention to their clubrooms at Milang?  Well done SSL. ...
