Cobram Cup Aerotow 2014

Posted on Feb 18, 2015 in Event Reports

After another great Cup weekend, I did a small write up of the weekend and collected a whole lot of images from various people: In its seventh year, the “I Soar Cobram” event has now grown to be the largest scale soaring event in Victoria and standing shoulder to shoulder with the largest events in Australia. Over the 4 days (and for some, 5 or 6), we get to see a range of scale sailplanes, tow planes, and this year was also a great example of changing weather conditions as well… Check out the full article of The Oz Scale Soaring website....

EFLIGHT CARBON-Z CUB & PARKZONE K8

Posted on Jun 12, 2014 in News

By Jason Sagaidak It all started one blustery Sunday (16/2/14) as a few diehards where sitting round the table in the club house discussing issues of the world and of course the weather, when Scott from Pro Hobby turned up and moseyed over to the club house with a rather large cheeky grin on his face and said, “Jase have I got a deal for you!”.  “Oh no this usually cost me money!” I replied. Scott put on the table one of E-Flights new Carbon-Z Cub’s. I replied to Scott, “Mate its foam; I told you I’m not buying foam any more especially 85in of it, it will be crap!” After all the lads had their look and a lot of umming and aaah’ing I decided to have a look myself. Well I must say first impression was how neatly it was packed, further inspection (as I look with my hands and not just my eyes) I started to unpack the Carbon-z cub and was starting to get slightly impressed with its quality of foam moulding. The finish, for a foam model is really quite nice, good paint and really shiny smooth finish. E-Flight have done a really, really good job of this one. Ok lets look at the electronics; and ok, it’s got...

Basic R/C Knowledge

Posted on Apr 22, 2013 in News

BASIC R/C KNOWLEDGE Part 1 By Jason Sagaidak ARF aircraft!!!!!!! Where do I start ?? As most who know me, know I’m not really fond of the cheaper line of ARF model kits and computer radios for beginners. “Why?” I here you ask. Although ARF kits have been good for the hobby they have been equally as bad. Yes they have probably gotten more people into the hobby and yes they are cheaper than building one from plans or scratch, and...
