G'day all,

Please be advised that (weather permitting) we will be hosting the second round of the summer fpv drone racing series at the PRCAC field at McCoy Park on Sunday the 3rd of December (Sunday week).

Normal club flying operations will be suspended and replaced by a series of organised heats which will run throughout the day from 9am in the morning until approximately 4pm in the afternoon. Click here for more information.

I expect that we will have at least a few PRCAC members competing at this event. Anyone with even a small interest in fpv or quad racing is encouraged to come down and check it out. These event attract upwards of 30 active pilots and their friends, every one is really friendly and it is a great way to learn more about the hobby.

Thanks,

Jason

Hi everyone, my apprentice s15e arrived with an 11.1v 3 cell LIPO charger, but no power supply. Do you have any recommendations?

Reminder to all members and visitors that on the 8th October 2017 (Sunday), PRCAC will be hosting a FPVR.org racing round from 8am.

https://fpvr.org/race/view/91/

Members are encouraged to come down and help or just watch some top class drone racing action. This event helps support our club so members will appreciate that there will be no normal club flying during the event from 8-4pm. If you do want to fly that weekend suggest you get down on the Saturday... unless you want to race on Sunday Wink

Large scale Pylon racing is on again 19th and 20th of September at Bendigo

This is a fantastic event if your able to get to it or any of the other race days during the year. Seriously It's just a must for anyone who really loves seeinging big scale models fly. I'd go as far as to say it's pretty close to Aero modelling heaven.

There's another large scale race meeting in Canberra later this year which is a little closer to Sydney.

There is simply nothing like seeing four beautifully prepaired 80 plus inch wingspan AT6 Texans go screaming past as they vie to complete the fastest 10 lap time.

Did I mention it's well worth going to one of these events ??

Sadly they might not continue for all that much longer due to lack of support so if you have the chance to go and see one don't let it pass you by. If you have the opportunity to put something together to race then there is a great and very helpful network of people to help you especially amongst the NSW guys. Post up, find out, you wont be disappointed.

Hello my name is Dashi. My Mum and Dad bought me a Cub for my 7th birthday. I would like to learn to fly it. I have flown it once with the help of my mum's friend. I would like to join your club and learn more.
I like to watch people fly their planes and try to fly my own plane.

Hi all,

So I finally got the plane together, I put the electronics together with a Turnigy 45amp ESC and a 1000kv 3542/6 turnigy motor with max 38A and 600watts.
I ran a watt meter and the plane is pulling 36A and about 380 watts with a 12x4.5 slow flyer prop. When the battery is fully charged and I go full throttle, my voltage alarm set at 3.8 goes off strait away. I'm concerned that it's drawing to hard on my 2200 3s 25c battery?
Could anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Also what does the 6 mean on the 3542/6 motor?

Thanks!!! Smile

Not sure how many of our members read Radio Control Model News.
It is quite a good read!! We as a club managed to get a positive word in this edition. Many thanks to Jeremy!! Perhaps it will help make a difference and we might get some interest from new members.

Attached is a copy of the article

It is quite likely that Steven Green may be Happy to publish more nicely written and relevant articles from MAAA members also our club could benefit from some more positive press.
