At RCBits we pride ourselves on knowing our product range personally. Almost everything we sell we use ourselves... because that's how we roll. We've traveled around Australia and overseas to fly our helicopters and multi-rotors at funflys and social events. We consider RCBits an extension of the RC helicopter hobby we so immensely enjoy. This is all about the fun for us.

The Twist-Lock Pigtail. It's the greatest.

We've just received a stack of the Twist-Lock style tools and pigtails. This is undoubtedly the best way to mount your pigtail clip from your onboard glow device onto your glowplug. If the little alligator clip bothers you, give the twist lock a try.

Suitable for any on-board glow device (especially if they use a little JST plug as a connector)

Check out our video of Jeremy showing how to install the pigtail, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3... strike that, it's even easier than that.

FPV - Penang Adventures

Took my TBS Discovery Pro with me to Penang as part of a short holiday I had with Kristy and a few friends. Managed to get a few flights along the beach near where we were staying and magically I didn't lose the whole ship in the ocean! Awesome, with that completed, I felt energized to mash up a bit of the footage I took whilst over there and put together this little video.

Winter Sale Season!

With the cold weather approaching, this is the perfect time to indulge yourself in a new helicopter kit to slowly build over winter. I've just done a clean-up of the specials section on our website and put in some new products in there to wet your appetite.

I'll be adding more over the coming weeks as I get time to go through what's sitting around the warehouse, feel free to contact me directly if you'd like to suggest having something in particular in there - you never know!

Edge is back baby!

Great news everbody! We've just received a substantially heavy shipment of Edge Rotor Blades. All sizes of main blade and tail blades are now available once more!

Jeremy is currently going through and sorting through the boxes. I'll be adding them to the online inventory this evening.

Some dealers have already got orders place and we'll be getting those out there early next week. Any other dealers wishing to order should do so by sending us an email for now. We will be updating the website as soon as we possibly can.

An afternoon at the Kambah RC race track

An afternoon at the Kambah RC race track (ACTMCRC) from RCMedia on Vimeo.

Some friends were out cruising around in their RC cars this afternoon at the track so I thought I'd pop by and have a bit of practise filming it with the Discovery Pro. So, here's a mashup of some of the driving and carnage from today.

The warehouse now has a telephone number!

We've got a new telephone number in the warehouse now so our contact details have been updated. Shanny will be around to answer it when she's working away getting the orders out the door. Our old number is still working and goes to the office, but we'll be phasing it out over the coming months.

You can find out contact details on the "Contact" page of this very website... The link is up the top... or just click the orange text you just read a moment ago.

FPV at Orroral Valley

We were introduced by a fellow local RC enthusiast to a place called Orroral Valley. It is situated just south of Canberra in the Namadgi National Park. This is a great place for FPV flying (wings and multi-rotors) with plenty of wide open spaces, lots of features (such as some buildings, trees, rocks and plenty of kangaroos) and its only about 30 minutes drive from my home.

I've flown out here twice so far with a few of the other guys and we really like it.

Here's a mashup video from our second visit there, with some soothing Groove Armada background music. Enjoy!
