Flying from a well-mown grass runway, IC models use transmitter frequencies which are either 2.4 GHz or odd numbers on 35 MHz.
All IC models must meet noise limits to fly on site and must be tested and certified before flight.
Advice and help about how to successfully fly your model is readily available.
If you are nervous about the maiden flight, concerned about the model or your ability to fly it, we have some very experienced pilots that can help.
Models popular on the Power Site cover a wide range, from military types to sport models and from ARTF kits to plan built models.
Many of our scale modellers spend a lot time discussing flying and building techniques, so there is always help and advice available on the scale details which improve your model.
Gerald Maull’s Bristol M.1C Monoplane Scout
60“ wing span and powered by an SC 52 four stroke.
Gerald built it meticulously over 18 months from a plan.
Richard Cohen’s Republic Thunderbolt
If you don’t have the time to build from a kit then ARTF kits like this get you into the air fast. They can be customised to personalise them. Richard Cohen repainted this one in RAF markings to make it stand out.
Mel Jordan’s de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk
A classic RAF trainer used throughout the 1950s with superb flying traits.
A large part of our membership will admit to owning and flying powered sport models. Here are some of our favourites. They are mainly ARTF and are powered by an even mix of two and four stroke engines.
Hangar 9 Pulse XT 60
A very capable low wing sport model.
