With a packed calendar extending through August and into September 2017. We have the model battery power to keep you sailing, driving, and flying your radio control model for many hours with friends.
Where will you be taking your 6v batteries for transmitters and receivers? We’ve picked out a few events around the UK to get you inspired or taking part in the world of radio control model planes, cars, and boats.
Take to the Skies with Model Aircraft Events
The Large Model Association (LMA) runs a series of model flying events throughout the year and September 2nd and 3rd sees the Much Marcle Model Show 2017. Open to the public and held at Rye Meadows, near Ledbury, on the Herefordshire/Gloucestershire border, the home of Herefordshire Model Aero Club. Camping is available for the weekend with flying displays running each day between 10am to 5pm.
Not everyone will own a scaled down aircraft of the type on show at this event, but if you are inspired to take up model flying, then Vapextech has the model batteries you need to stay airborne. If you have a modest budget Vapextech batteries provide excellent power at very competitive prices.
The Need for Speed with Model Cars and Buggies
For those who like to keep their radio control models firmly on the ground, we also have the batteries for model fun on four wheels. If you are feeling competitive and would like to get into racing. The British Radio Car Association (BRCA) is a useful place to find information about how to enter their events, the requirements of your vehicle and very importantly, what are the rules and etiquette of racing.
Model Boats of All Types Make a Splash!
The model boating community and their respective clubs can be affiliated to the Model Powerboat Association. This is the United Kingdom’s governing body for model boating covering events and clubs up and down the country. Whether you are into scale models, tethered hydro’s, or fast electric types of radio controlled model boat, then you will find a competition or club event near to you through them. They also have useful advice and information available for water safety and guidelines for the safe use of LIPO batteries. Whether you like to pilot a scale model tug or race power boats, Vapextech is here to supply high quality batteries and chargers for transmitters and receivers so that you can enjoy your chosen hobby to the full.
