The Tasmanian Model Aeronautical Association (TMAA) has granted our club around $600.00 towards the purchase of training equipment. We have on order a Phoenix Classic EP Trainer model from Rojs Hobbies in Melbourne.
These are the details:
- Wingspan: 1420mm (55.9in)
- Length: 1070mm (42.1in)
- Weight: 1700g~2000g
- Engine: 35-48 electric
- Built up Balsa and Plywood contruction (Laser cut)
- 95% Factory built
Also on order, are two Turnigy 9x (buddy-box system), electric motor, batteries, and all other required accessories to make this plane flight-ready. We can now progress the beginners, who have outgrown their Bixlers, to the Phoenix Classic Trainer. May it have a long life.
This is a major step forwards for the club and we wish to thank the members of the TMAA, who ultimately made this possible.
