    March 30th and 31st brought me to Thailand Heli Blowout 2019 at the Thung Srikan Flying Field in Bangkok, (THB) Asia's premier fun fly and Competition. This would be my first competition and demos out of Australia. We arrived Thursday afternoon to the airport where we were greeted by my Teammates father Narong Poonoi who drove us off to the hotel to assemble helis for practice starting Friday. The weather in Bangkok was quite a shock to the system with temperatures above 35°c and humidity in the high 60's. Friday I managed to get in 7 flights of practice even with the chaotic flight lines, mainly set manoeuvers as that's what I was flying on Saturday. I made some good progress with the help of my teammates. Inbetween flights I was assisting the team with mechanical issues throughout the day where I could. I left Friday feeling better...

    Assembling the JR Forza 700 RC Helicopter - A Photographic Guide
    This is a guest blog post from Modelflight team member, Matt. It shows photographs taken as Matt assembled the JR Forza 700 RC helicopter, with his commentary added underneath each image.
