New Twister Dingo
Hand Launch Free Flight Glider

DingoGlider
The first shipment of 'super affordable' Twister Dingo hand launch gliders have arrived in the Model Engines' warehouse and back-orders are currently in transit to retailers who pre-ordered this fantastic new product.  With a wingspan of 480mm, the free flight characteristics of the Twister Dingo are amazing.
DingoGlider
The Australian designed colour boxing will jazz up any display counter and will make the Twister Dingo the perfect stocking filler for Christmas.  A gift that will be appreciated by everyone who receives one, from the very young to the not so young...

DingoGlider
Manufactured from durable EPP foam, the Twister Dingo can be easily assembled in seconds and is ideal for beginners.  Instructions are also included showing how to trim the Twister Dingo to achieve maximum flight times.  In the unlikely event of breakage, it can be easily repaired with standard cyano-acrylate glues.

DingoGlider
Twister Dingo's are available in two colour schemes, Blue or Yellow, and may be purchased in bulk quantities of mixed colours for added savings.

Multiplex MULTIGyro G3
Triple-axis gyro system 

The MULTIGyro G3 has been developed specifically for RC fixed-wing model aircraft, and automatically stabilises the model. The difference is amazing.  You can instantly fly more accurately and safely.

The Model's familiar flying characteristics are virtually unchanged, but it flies much more smoothly, more precisely, and is less susceptible to weather-induced and aerodynamic influences.

Gyro gain can be adjusted separately for each primary axis (elevator, rudder and aileron) on the device itself. In this way the model can be set up accurately to suit your preference.

Installing the MULTIGyro G3 could hardly be simpler, and only takes a few minutes.
Features:
  • Triple-axis gyro system, specifically for RC fixed-wing model aircraft
  • Suitable for all current RC systems
  • Selectable model type: standard fixed-wing, delta or flying wing, V-tail
  • Modes switchable at the transmitter (OFF, normal, heading-hold)
  • Variable gyro gain, individual and without PC
