Happy New Year...

With the New Year now upon us, Model Engines' staff are gearing up for an extensive year of displays and events designed to encourage people to take up RC as a hobby and to entice lapsed modellers back to the fold.
 

MAAA F1 AIR RACE at SANDOWN

Getting the year off to a flying start will be the MAAA F1 Air Race at Sandown.  The inaugrual event last year attracted a huge crowd and the organisers are expecting over 10,000 people to pass through the gates on Sunday the 31st January 2016 at Sandown International Raceway in Melbourne.

MODEL ENGINES' FUN FLY VICTORIA

This will be followed by the Model Engines' Fun Fly Victoria.  To mix things up a bit, it is being held on Sunday the 17th April 2016 at the Northern Flying Group - State Field at Garraweit Guim in Victoria. 
The change of venue will make the journey a little more convenient for modellers who live to the West and North of Melbourne.  April should deliver fine weather for the event and another outstanding day of flying.

 Multiplex WingStabi 3-Axis Gyro Systems
for Fixed Wing Aircraft 

The new Multiplex WINGSTABI offers a freely programmable triple-axis gyro stabilisation system for RC fixed-wing model aircraft. Every pilot dreams of having the sensation of perfect control over his model at all times.

Click the link to see the YouTube video, it is in German but I don't think you will mind...
(PS.  We do not endorse the use of mobile phones on the flight line, or scantly clad super models :-))


Multiplex WingStabi

The WINGSTABI makes this possible, and ticks every possible box for beginners and pro-standard flyers alike in terms of handling, setting up and functions.

The WINGSTABI is also compatible with all current RC systems: Graupner, Futaba, M-Link, Jeti, HiTEC, Weatronic and others.

The latest
generation of ultra-precise triple-axis MEMS sensors ensures that the sensation of flying remains realistic even at extremely high rates of stabilisation, and the pilot never has the impression of flying a robot.

The
sleek case, made of anodised aircraft aluminium, can be installed in any orientation in the model.

The WINGSTABI is straightforward and swift to
program using a PC or an app with any Android smartphone or tablet via a Multiplex Bluetooth-Module (Code: MPX45188).

Features of this pioneering innovation from MULTIPLEX include:

  •  The WINGSTABI makes any simple radio control  set into a fully programmable RC system
  •  Gain (sensitivity) on all three axes can be varied separately or jointly from the transmitter
  •  Variation factor can be set separately for each axis
  •  7 or 9 channel versions with servo outputs
  • The gyro function is freely assignable for each servo, i.e. the unit caters for every model application
  •  Four flight phases: 1. On / Off, 2. Stabilisation for flying in windy conditions, 3. Aerobatics and 3D flying, 4.Torque-rolling (rock‘n‘roll at the flying site)
  • Delta mixer, V-tail mixer and flap – aileron mixer
  • Variable flap - aileron mixer ratio
  • Aileron control superimposed on flaps for stabilisation
  • Real-time sensor diagram in the PC software
