  • 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 ...

    We are thrilled to announce the latest addition to Hangar 9's range of model planes.
