Flight Sim

With the current wet weather dragging on & on I think the time has come to get the simulator out to keep the skills levels at a reasonable level. If you would like to do the same or even as new flyer get the skills without the risk of damaging your pride and joy.

Phoenix simulator was one of the best if not the best, but since going out of business we thought that would be it. But its now reappeared as a free download though a website called rc-thoughts.com CLICK HERE to view the simulator plus other model related useful software.

You will also need some hardware for this, there is some currently available for most TX’s for around £20 on amazon CLICK HERE

New BMFA website to help with CAA regulations.


*** Please read, read again, and then share! ***

Good morning,

The BMFA has put together a dedicated, easy to understand website that tells our members everything they need to know about the CAA’s upcoming DMARES (Drone and Model Aircraft Registration and Education Scheme). This guide will help to keep our members safe, lawful and acting responsibly.

Every stage is broken down into small, bite-size chunks of information. Please take some time to look at the website and explore its contents, re-reading if necessary.

You can find the website directly at the following link:

Or, by visiting the main BMFA website and clicking on the main banner:


Please remember that all current BMFA members are exempt from the need to register immediately. Please take time to look at the website, understand the simple steps that you need to take and then plan ahead for the relevant dates.
