Adelaide Model Aerosport played host to this year's Jets over Monarto 3-day event. Blessed with some great late winter weather, over 30 pilots with in excess of 50 RC jets attended. Models ranged from small EDF models to the super impressive 3-metre Leonardo turbine model of Theo Arvanitakis. Pilots came from Alice Springs, Mildura, Melbourne and various SA-based clubs, and a lot of interested RC modellers came from Adelaide to check out the action. See below and the image gallery for pictures from the event!
A big thank you to the AMA Club, and the organisers, Greg Leigh and David Wearing-Smith.

Jets over Monarto took place at Adelaide Model Aerosports, Monarto over the weekend of 26-27-28 August. This event is the post-covid version of Jet Action that had been an annual event for over 25 years.
The field was in perfect condition with closely mown grass on all sides of the north-south sealed strip. We were blessed with sunny weather and a northerly wind for all 3 days. 25 pilots and over 40 turbine and EDF-powered models were present, including something nostalgic (OS 25DF powered Mirage) and something very different (turbine-powered Ultra Stick 30cc). Gallons of Jet A1 were burnt and several hundred successful sorties were flown. A big thank you to the AMA Club and event organisers Greg Leigh and David Wearing-Smith.

This week we have received some amazing new aircrafts and RC cars, including the new Viper RC Jet from E-flite, so let's get into it and see what we've got.
Victorious Viper EDF Jet
The Viper is a Brand-New 70mm electric ducted fan Jet from E-flite. It is available in two versions, a Bind-N-Fly (BNF) and a Plug-and-Play version (PNP). PNP would be ideal for non-Spektrum transmitter users as it allows you to use your own receiver. This EDF RC Jet comes pre-assembled and you will need to add your own receiver, transmitter, battery and charger. Spektrum Radio users will benefit from the BNF version as it includes a pre-installed Spektrum receiver with exclusive AS3X and SAFE select technologies tuned
May 27, 2013 3For the 20th year in a row, Adelaide Model Aerosport played host to Jet Action at Monarto Field and Modelflight was proud to be associated with this event. There was a large number of pilots from across Australia participating in the event and the crowd numbers were also positive. There were some very impressive models on show, including a Futura from Tomahawk Design, flown by Paul Martin. Several twins and Eurosport models were also at the event. We also noted several EDF models; not necessarily large ones, but big enough to put in solid performances. One model that really captured our attention was the BVM King Cat, flown by Jason Starkey. We were able to capture some great event footage
