    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 else...

  • Event Review – Indoor Flying in Adelaide, October 2013

    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...

  • New Release! E-Flite UMX Habu 180 DF RC Jet

    New Release! E-Flite UMX Habu 180 DF RC Jet
    Fans of RC jets, take note. E-Flite has just announced the launch of the UMX Habu DF 180. If it looks familiar to you, that’s no surprise. It is modelled on the very popular Habu 32 park flyer.  In the same shape as the original, the key difference is that its ultra-micro size means that this ducted fan jet is small enough to fly in your own backyard.  And boy, does this UMX Habu pack a punch! It features an EDF power system, incorporating the Delta-V 180m 28mm EDF Unit, coupled with a brushless 180m Ducted Fan Motor, with 11750Kv of power.   Check out this video where Mike takes us through the brand new release of the UMX Habu.  You can also watch on Modelflight’s YouTube chan...

    The Phoenix Event Report: Indoor Flying in Adelaide, June 2013
      I dare say that we cannot expect, at this time of the year, any warmer weather than we're experiencing at present and this was the case for our June gathering of Indoor Fliers and, no doubt, the reason for us scratching to pay the rent at the stadium, the home of Netball S.A. where we gather to fly on the third Thursday of each Month - right throughout the year. I was pleased to hear from our leader, Michael O'Reilly of Model Flight that we did, in fact, make the necessary fee for this ultra-cold night.   It turned out to be a great night for those who were keen enough to come along, no doubt like me, covered by multi-layers of woollen wear and the heaviest quality at that.   ...
