IC Powered Flight

General Information

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 who can help.


Powered Scale
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.
