  • New Arrma Infraction RC Street Basher

    We went down to the Hallett Cove Skate Park to shoot some footage with the Arrma Infraction. We were lucky enough to get a sample of this remote control car to put it through its paces, and let us tell you, it is an amazing car! Phenomenal performance, phenomenal speed - the RC car will smoke the tyres doing donuts it has that much power and torque. We were probably putting it in a place where it shouldn't be, jumping and bashing it, doing everything that you probably wouldn't want to do to a car that you have just purchased, but we did to see what it can handle and it has come through beautifully with no damage aside from some scuffs to the body...

  • W.A Challenge Cup 2019

    This weekend was Round 2 (out of 4) of the WA Challenge Cup, hosted by MORBC on the recent IFMAR worlds track. Aaron would go into Round 2 with a 4 lap lead in the overall series, over Harry Simms (Mugen Maxima). Saturday was qualifying day and all the 'locals' were straight out on track going super fast after running lots of laps last weekend at the 1/10th Interclub. Aaron used his consistency, and the OS B21 TY2, to TQ round 1 of qualifying, but it wasn't going to be easy. In round 2, the track condition had changed and a few small errors meant Aaron was 3rd for the round, only a few seconds in it. Aaron went on to TQ Q3 and Q4 under lights with consecutive FTD's. In Q5 unfortunately a DNF due to a bad cell in the receiver pack. With TQ 3 out of 5, Aaron would start P1 in the second semi. Younger brother Ben, with some solid runs, qualified 9th, starting 5th in the same semi as his brother. Sunday came around...

  • Popular Radian RC Glider Turns 10

    Popular Radian RC Glider Turns 10
    Way back in 2009 Horizon Hobby introduced their first electric powered glider, the ParkZone Radian which was a huge success by any measure. This simple 2 metre, 3 channel foam glider was quick to assemble, light and soared in the weakest of thermals. What more could a budding RC Glider pilot ask for? Owing some of its design cues to the 1974 Hobie Hawk with an elliptical wing plan form and elliptical dihedral, the Radian has a distinctive look in the sky. Tens of thousands of RC pilots have enjoyed the easy flying characteristics and great soaring abilities of the Radian. RC glider clubs all over the world hold one model competitions for the Radian including the Southern Soaring League in Adelaide. Up to 20 pilots launch their models on the sound of the hooter and climb under power to 100 metres where the motor is turned off. The task is to fly...

  • What is Active Vehicle Control (AVC) in RC Cars?

    AVC, What’s all that about? Ever had an R/C car that was too fast to drive in a straight line? Struggled on loose surfaces? Lost the back end going around corners? Well not to worry, Spektrum has you covered with its proprietary AVC (Active Vehicle Control) technology, allowing beginner enthusiasts to control high powered cars with a level of precision that was previously unattainable. AVC works by utilizing accelerometer’s and sensors inside the receiver to give feedback about the cars movement and relative position. This feedback is then taken and turned into a steering and throttle input. The input will apply throttle and steering correction to keep the car pointing in the direction you choose, these corrections are made so fast that you’re unable to feel them whilst they work seamlessly behind the scenes to provide a driving experience that is precise and c...

  • Thailand Heli Blowout 2019

    Thailand Heli Blowout 2019
    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. The weather in Bangkok was quite a shock to the system with temperatures above 35°c and humidity in the high 60's. Friday I managed to get in 7 flights of practice even with the chaotic flight lines, mainly set manoeuvers as that's what I was flying on Saturday. 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...
