Flying types - Our indoor flying sessions invite any small indoor aircraft. Whether rubber or electric powered, fixed wing or helicopters. small drones are also welcome.
The indoor flying 'field' is a relatively small community gym, which favours small, light-weight, aircraft. Presuming you'll be joining us for the first time, here are some suggested "off-the-shelf" indoor flying models.
Ideal models are under 12" wingspan, and lightweight enough that an errant model won't cause injury.
UMX Vapor: Available from Horizon Hobby and your local hobby shop - an ideal 'ready to go' indoor flying model.
UMX Turbo Timber: For expert pilots, the Turbo Timber may work for our space. Many pilots do find, however, the space to be challenging with these faster planes.
Stevens Aero Kits: For those wishing to build their own indoor flyer, but need a kit, Stevens Aero has a number of indoor kits that use the e-flite/parkzone electronics.
Helicopters: Micro helicopters work best for the space, with the E-Flite Nano S3 being an excellent example. For helicopters, however, even the inexpensive London Drugs helicopters can be quite a bit of fun.
