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?)

Grease Me Up Scotty! RCBits now stocks "The Greaser"

Give life to your bearings and show them the respect they demand by filling them up with grease with this awesome tool:

Quite simple to use really, fill the metal cup up with grease, jam the white thing with the rubber ring in the cup and then put your bearings in there and with that phallic looking object proceed to force grease through the shields of your radial bearings. How awesome is that?

You'll find it under our tools and bits section.
