Safety Slogan
BEWARE SPINNING PROPELLERS ARE DANGEROUS
Indoor Flying

Towards the end of 2018 Noarlunga Model Aerosports started flying indoor models at the Seaford Rec Centre, 620 Grand Blvd, Seaford Rise SA 5169 this will continue in to 2019 with dates still to be confirmed.

Many types of aircraft can be flown - Planes, quadcopters, Helicopters etc

The night normally start at 7pm and goes through to 9pm, a small fee is paid if you would like to fly. There is no charge if you would just like to come and watch

Great news we have the bigger court to start with and hopefully we continue to get Court 1 as well if/when it’s free.

  • 24th January
  • 14th & 28th February  - careful here as 14th is Valentines’ Day
  • 14th & 28th March
  • 11th & 25th April – 25th is doubtful as Anzac Day and Council not sure they will be open.
  • 9th & 23rd May
  • 13th & 27th June

We are also researching plane plans, kits, and equipment like servo's and motors

Plans and Info

Some info that has been supplied from one of the NMAS Members to help you get started

I would recommend as a first build the Bling Bling.  Relatively easy to build and flies quite well.
Plans Here


The Morback is an interesting one, but difficult to build.  I would not recommend as a first time build.
Ref - Morback.pdf page 1

Tiled printable A4 Plans

I built one of these and got to understand what the leading edge top bits were.  They were effectively, leading edge slats....


Index 2 - is different and relatively easy to build - leading edge is interesting. I built one and are using the wing on my current model

Plans Here


F3X are OK - just different.

Plans1 - F3X

Plans2 - F3X


My current plan is a combination of the good bits of these planes.

The side view of the fuzz is the bling bling, but lengthened by 65mm, just in front of the tailplane.

The fuzz top view is from the F3X, but lengthened by 65mm, just in front of the tailplane.

The wings are similar to the Index, but with extensions on the leading edges of the wing tips and

the Ailerons are same as the F3X.......

An interesting combo, but it flies well.

Technical details of my current planes are....

Index 2 - modified as per above - 65mm extension  - 44.2 Hours are shown on transmitter !!!

Motor - AXI 2304 1000Kv,

Prop - 8 x 4.7 GWS ( or copy ), 9 x 3.8 APC or 9 x 4 work as well.

Batt - 2S 460 to 610 mAh,

ESC - 10 Amp,

Servos - HXT 9 (hobbyKing 9g ) Aileron, Elevator & Rudder.

Rudder is pull pull,

Elevator is 1mm carbon on (on top, so as to PULL the elevator......)

Aileron is a single servo with 1mm carbon rods to each Aileron.  I do use an 'offset' horn to get 0 degrees of differential....

Motor is setup with NO right or down... 

Motor, Front wing and Tail-plane are ALL on the same datum line.....     ie EVERYTHING is 0 degrees
