    Adelaide Golden Era Air Races 2019
    Modelflight has been proud to support the Adelaide Golden Era Air Races since its inception in 1997.

  • 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.

  • 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...

We can’t make up your mind for you, but we can point you in the right direction. Here are a few key pointers which can help you make your decision and a few things to look out for.
