  • 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.

  • STEM Education and the use of Radio Control (RC) Products

    STEM is an acronym that stands for four increasingly relevant academic disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Rather than teach each area separately, STEM education integrates these disciplines for use in real-life applications and the use of RC related products can add a fun element that students can relate to. Remote Control toys are not only fun to play with, but they’re also a great way to educate students about robotics, mechanics and how to build and design.

They can be used to encourage them to work together as a team, thus enhancing their social and communication skills. Model Fli...
