The models detailed within these pages are generally designed to be flown within a controlled environment Model Aircraft Club. At the very least it's worth contacting you're local flying club when you're new to the hobby, just to get some help and hands on advice with flying you model.

A full list of national flying sites and aircraft clubs can be found at the British Modelling Flying Association.

Electric Flight aircraft tend to have a much more conventional shape, many being scale models of the real thing, and just like their full sized counterparts these employ typically throttle, rudder and elevator controls, with some more advanced versions incorporating ailerons to give banking and aerobatic capabilities. Whilst some models are designed around traditional electric motors, many are now utilizing new brushless motor technology, allowing for greater flight times and considerably higher performance. With a suitable 12 volt charger these models can be recharged at the flying site from a car battery, allowing for a full days flying. Flying RC aircraft as a hobby has been growing worldwide with the advent of more efficient power; electric, miniature internal combustion or even jet engines plus lighter and more powerful batteries and less expensive radio systems.

A wide variety of models and styles are available.

We also supply radio controlled aircraft simulators, so you can hone your skills before attempting a first flight, or to practice aerobatics without risk of damaging the aircraft.

Max Thrust Lightning 1500 PNP RC Power Glider 1-MT-LIGHTNING-1500PNP
The Lightning is the culmination of two years of design and testing. We knew what we wanted and set out with the basic criteria of a 1.5 metre wingspan using a 3 cell 2200 mAh pack and to be able to get the model into your car easily, and we wanted it to perform. We have worked hard and feel that we have succeeded.

The model offers high performance in more ways than you think, it has great high-speed stability both under power and also on the glide. Constructed from our new super smooth EPOFLEXY with carbon spars
in the wings and fuselage giving a very strong airframe. The Lightning is at home both on the field or the slope where with the high performance brushless power system you can either hunt out the lift or power through F3A style aerobatics.

The model features high-speed servos throughout and even has a metal geared one on the all-moving tail to give you a very precise and accurate tail.
Although we call the Lightning a glider really it is far more and should appeal to anyone like us who loves to fly. Its sleek elegant lines enable this model to perform precision aerobatics like an F3A model but also soar in the warm air thermals or a 30 mph wind on the slope and reward you with a big smile every time you fly.

The Thunder 180 from Tech One is a revelation, not only is it awesome indoors but you can also take this stunner outside in still conditions and amaze yourself with it’s slow speed 3D aerobatics.

Built from EPS and reinforced with carbon and balsa strips, the Thunder has amazing torsional rigidity and at only 249g is ultra light weight, making it perfect for high torque 3D aerobatics and manoeuvres.

The profile style airframe keeps air resistance to a minimum but with the large side profile you can be sure of superb knife edge performance. The large powerful control surfaces give you precise control over the aircraft.

The brushless motor provides all the thrust you need to prop hang and then to climb out with ease. Large aerobatics are easily achieved with plenty of power in reserve to pull you out if things start to go wrong.

Red or Blue

Famous have taken the trusty Cessna 182 and given it a total make over from the ground up. It now really does replicate the full size even to the fully functioning navigation lights.



The durability of the EPO foam has been further bettered with a high gloss surface finish and factory applied decals.

Stability and predictability are two strong points of this airframe and together with the high power brushless motor, scale 3 blade propeller and long duration LiPo battery, it results in a great trainer and intermediate aircraft.

The wing loading remains wonderfully light, but to add more realistic flight characteristics this model also features scale flaps, they have proved to be great fun and give an extra dimension to the flight envelope.

The budding pilot can easily perform aerobatics such as Stall turns, inverted flight, point rolls, loops and bunts with minimal effort.

The new improved Mk 2 FMS Cessna can be found in all good model shops.

The T-34 Mentor is a rare aircraft in the UK, built by the Beechcraft Corporation during the 1950's. During its early days a piston engine powered this aircraft, but later developments gave it the turbo prop engine which our model is based on. They were used primarily as a training aircraft but have been used right up to the present day as a light attack and display aircraft.

Joysway Huntsman V2 2.4Ghz RTF Orange 6108V2
The Huntsman, like its smaller brother the Smart-K, is an excellent introduction to flying as a basic trainer or even as a park-flyer for an experienced pilot. Unlike other similar models, this one includes ailerons, making it capable of mild aerobatics and therefore suitable for progression to a more manoeuvrable aircraft later on. The ingenious tail mounting system acts like an old freeflight dethermaliser by stalling the airframe allowing it to 'parachute' stall down to the floor (check out the video below). This combined with the rear-mounted prop makes the Huntsman very resilient to crash damage and thereby ensuring flying fun!
This new version includes an update to the colour scheme.  Comes in various colours.
