About us

Scale building is an exciting and challenging aspect of R/C modelling. Whether it's your first scale project or you are a seasoned builder, you will find the Scale Model Flying Association of Ireland a great resource.

The origins of the Scale Model Flying Association date back to 1988, where an inaugural gathering took place on the 22nd October at the Montrose Hotel in Dublin. Details of this historic meeting may be found in our downloads section.
Today, scale model flying comes in a wide variety of forms and sizes, from scratch-built, plan built models, to kit assembled models, to almost ready to fly, and even plug and play that day EPO models.
Whatever the entry level to Scale Model Flying, once you have graduated from your trusty trainer, the sky is literally the limit, and there are many styles and classes of Scale Model Flying, both for Sport and for Competition.
