This week we have received some amazing new aircrafts and RC cars, including the new Viper RC Jet from E-flite, so let's get into it and see what we've got.
Victorious Viper EDF Jet
The Viper is a Brand-New 70mm electric ducted fan Jet from E-flite. It is available in two versions, a Bind-N-Fly (BNF) and a Plug-and-Play version (PNP). PNP would be ideal for non-Spektrum transmitter users as it allows you to use your own receiver. This EDF RC Jet comes pre-assembled and you will need to add your own receiver, transmitter, battery and charger. Spektrum Radio users will benefit from the BNF version as it includes a pre-installed Spektrum receiver with exclusive AS3X and SAFE select technologies tuned

March 30th and 31st brought me to Thailand Heli Blowout 2019 at the Thung Srikan Flying Field in Bangkok, (THB) Asia's premier fun fly and Competition. This would be my first competition and demos out of Australia.
We arrived Thursday afternoon to the airport where we were greeted by my Teammates father Narong Poonoi who drove us off to the hotel to assemble helis for practice starting Friday.

I made some good progress with the help of my teammates. Inbetween flights I was assisting the team with mechanical issues throughout the day where I could. I left Friday feeling better about

Hi all, Hamish here.
I will be aiming to be a basic blog from this year's events that I attend. If you see me at any of the events please feel free to come and say hello, and ask for some advice if required. I hope with the heli scene growing again not only in Australia but worldwide, I will bump into some of you throughout the year. If not, you can keep up to date with me on this blog or Hamish Scott Heli on Facebook where I post flight videos, pictures, event and product information that I hope you all can make some use of. Happy Flying!

Axial Yeti Jr. Can-Am Replica
Axial has teamed up with Can-Am to produce a realistic Maverick X3 rock racer in a 1/18th scale with a detailed Can-Am finish. This RC car comes with some great features and is ready to run out of the box.
