  • RC Jet Meeting at Monarto - July 2014 Event Report

    RC Jet Meeting at Monarto - July 2014 Event Report
    This is a special guest post from Mike O'Reilly, who was invited to attend the July 2014 Jet Meeting. On Saturday 26th July Todd Morris on behalf of the JASA organised a local jet meeting at the AMA field at Monarto. Sunny skies and light winds blessed an enthusiastic group of pilots who attended. The field was in perfect condition for the testing of some new jets. Greg Leigh had his Ripmax Excalibur there and had dialled it in on his new Spektrum DX18 Gen 2 transmitter. He had also fitted the Spektrum telemetry system with the JetCat sensor, airspeed sensor and battery monitoring. It was fantastic to hear this data from the transmitter whilst flying.

  • E-Flite Ultra-Micro Corsair RC Plane Coming Soon to Modelflight

    E-Flite Ultra-Micro Corsair RC Plane Coming Soon to Modelflight
    For fans of ultra-micro RC planes (or scale planes in general), some great news emerged yesterday with the launch of the E-Flite Ultra-Micro Corsair. This is an excellent addition to the E-Flite hangar. The previous Corsair from ParkZone was a very popular model and it is great to see that E-Flite have now created a smaller-scale version, which is perfect for both indoor and outdoor flying. A key feature of this new Corsair is the inclusion of Artificial Stabilisation Three Axis (AS3X) Technology. AS3X works subtly in the background as you fly; smoothing out the effects of forces such as P-Factor, turbulence and torque. This technology is so subtle, you will hardly notice it working. The...

    New Graupner HoTTrainer Coming Soon to Modelflight
      Another great addition to the new RC planes at the Nuremberg 2014 Toy Fair is the Graupner HoTTrainer RC plane. This wooden remote control plane comes with a bold Graupner/SJ team pilot style and is a very versatile aircraft. You will notice how the wings can be mounted in two positions.

This will give the HoTTrainer the characteristics of a precision aerobatic model.   This new Graupner RC plane has...
