  • Event Review – Indoor Flying in Adelaide, November 2013

    Event Review – Indoor Flying in Adelaide, November 2013
    A fun night of indoor flying was held last night at ETSA Stadium, Adelaide. There were around 30 pilots and spectators in attendance and, once again, a variety of models were on show. Of particular interest was the new Blade 180QX. This RC quadcopter was very stable in the air, thanks to the included SAFE Technology. Similar to the 350 QX, this quadcopter comes with an on-board camera, which certainly came in handy last night, as we were able to capture some great footage from the sky. If you haven't already seen this footage (along with the other video highlights we captured), check out our video below:     As you can see, the 180 QX is very smooth in the air and was able to film all the action of the event. If you are looking for an ...

  • Just Announced! Hangar 9 de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver 30cc Model Plane Coming to Modelflight

    Just Announced! Hangar 9 de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver 30cc Model Plane Coming to Modelflight
    We are thrilled to announce the latest addition to Hangar 9's range of model planes. The de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver is an accurate replica of the full-scale plane of the same name (commonly referred to as the "bush plane" given its ability to handle rugged environments). It comes with a 110inch wingspan and is designed for 30cc gas power, but can also accomodate electric power.   Hangar 9 are well known for the quality of their models (as any fan can attest) and the Beaver is no different. It is constructed from the best balsa and plywood materials using modern construction processes, form assembly, tab alignment rigidity and laser-cut part accuracy. Regardless of whether the Beaver is your first...

  • The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, October 2013

    The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, October 2013
    Whilst it was only a handful of eager beavers who played on the highly polished floor under the lights, never-the-less, a good time was had by all and few would complain of the number of flights that they enjoyed. It was a bumper night for Mike O'Reilly for he endured lots of time setting up a couple of new and exciting models at no expense to any other fliers. His efforts were much appreciated. My first pic shows the latest import at Model Flight with the highly attractive UMX SBach 342 3D to give it its full title which is almost larger than the micro model.     Like most of the micros being imported into our country  these days it is quite quick but delightfully steady in flight. Well - it was when in Mike's hands and as it was the first of its kind in the country at that time, I don't recall seeing anyone...

    Event Review – Indoor Flying in Adelaide, October 2013
    ETSA Stadium once again played host to RC pilots and spectators last night at Adelaide's October 2013 indoor flying event. It was a good showing, with around 25 people in attendance (plus an additional 25 netball players who were meant to be practicing on the other court, but seemed to be distracted by the flying activity). A wide variety of RC models were on display at the event, with a great representation from increasingly-popular RC quadcopters. Several Blade mQXs were seen darting across the stadium. With their AS3X technology, they were very stable in the air and enjoyable to watch. It was also great to see a new Blade 350QX. These remote control quadcopters have been a hit and have just arrived at Modelflight. With their SAFE Technology and GoPro camera mounts, no doubt we will be seeing more of these models at future Indoor Flying events.   On...
