We're heading up to the Coffs funfly on Wednesday and as a result, orders placed after 4pm on Tuesday will not be shipped till the following Tuesday (18th of May). For those of you not going to the Funfly, we apologise for the inconvenience. For those of you going to the funfly - come say hello! We don't bite, well... Timmy does sometimes.

Super awesome happy times for the Beam E4 V2 Advantage!

These little beasts are surely becoming popular in Australia. It is becoming common practice to almost always spot one at the local field and they are becoming a household name.

Thanks to our distributors over at Brooknet we have some panty wetting combo deals for this baby.

So what have we got? WELL WELL WELL.. there's:
- The Airframe Only for a wicked $285
- Airframe + Motor + ESC for a bit more, $399
- Airframe + Servos + Gyro, for a little bit more again, $469

And finally, for the cool kids we have:
- The Beam E4 Cool Kids Combo, for $609 ... you get EVERYTHING except for the Receiver, and a lipo battery. What a steal, what a deal! Totally 103% awesome.

FLY-BAR-LESS - Slight catalogue restructure

It became apparent to us that we're quickly building up a pretty large range of Flybarles units... to the point where it wouldn't be unfair to say we have the widest range of FBL Units across Australia!

We've got the well renowned Mikado V-Bar and Mini V-bar Units.
We've got the very popular Align 3G Units in all sizes.
We've got the Curtis Youngblood Total-G coming soon.
And we've also got the InertiaRC Axiom 720!

So, with all that in mind, it seemed like a good idea for us to make a specific Flybarless category!

The single axis gyros you all love as well as Zeal tape and other gyro related bits and pieces can still be found in the regular Gyro section.

Its all part of the evolution baby!

AHF Aeolus indahouse!

RCBits now has a few handfuls of kits and parts for the AHF Aeolus 50 now in stock. I'm still working through putting the parts up but the kits are ready for your grubby fingers to do the grabby thing... and when I get some spare time I'll start building one of these for my fleet, hells yeah!

Its all available in our new Aeolus section. Check it out kids!

Community Service Announcement - No Flying during Visit of President Obama

Flyers in the ACT and surrounding regions are prohibited from flying model aircraft on the 25th and 26th of March this year due to Air Force One landing at Canberra Airport.

Airservices Australia has issued a document AIP H15-10 which enforces these restrictions of the airspace around Canberra airport during this time. The AIP applies to two defined areas designated as R904 and R903 and applies restrictions from the surface up to defined Flight Levels. The restriction covers about an 80km radius of airspace around the airport.

You can find a copy of the issued document here.

I wonder if I would get away with flying the 250 at the oval? I wouldn't bother trying, but thought of some jet taking it out with a missile is entertaining.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: It would appear this has now been cancelled with the President postponing his visit until later in the year! False alarm!

On Special: Hatori 566 and 522 Pipes

Grab yourself a fresh Hatori 522 pipe at a bargain price this week and revive that old Hyper 50 you've got sitting there.

Alternatively, get yourself a new fancypants 55, 56 or 57 sized engine and bolt on this bad boy:

Temptation is hard to resist when the prices are this good.

Be sure to have a quick squiz at our Specials section to see what else might float your boat (or should I say, spin your rotors?)
