Precision Aerobatics Bandit ARF 3D Racer

There is always a question of which power system to outfit an electric model with. With so many options on the market, this can pose a real challenge. The folks at Precision Aerobatics have done the hard work for you, and their PA Thrust 40 brushless motor has been proven by their engineers and test pilots to be the optimal choice for this model. I totally agree; the power is incredible. I really like the carbon reinforced airframe because of its light weight, superb flying traits, and rigidity. The Bandit is a real 3D performer.

The ParkZone Icon A5 is an authentic, licensed reproduction of a soon to be in production amphibious aircraft designed by the Icon Aircraft Company. Though there is but a single full size prototype aircraft going through its final flight testing, ParkZone worked out an agreement with Icon that enabled them to use original design documents to come up with their Z Foam based model. With everything required to operate from either water or land based sites included in the box, the unique appearance of this latest offering from ParkZone is only surpassed by its operational versatility.

SIG Rascall EP-49 ARF

The SIG Rascal EP-49 is a great flying model that is easy to assemble and looks awesome in the sky. The included power system has more than enough power to pull the model through most basic aerobatic maneuvers. It is a perfect sport plane that I would recommend as a great second model for someone advancing from a trainer or for an advanced pilot that is looking for something that can transport easy with sport-like flight characteristics. It is a fun, low-stress model to fly.

E-Flite UMX Hyper Taxi BNF

Wow! VTOL is the coolest! I served in a Marine Harrier Squadron in the 70’s, and nothing gets me as excited as a quality VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing)machine. This model does it all. It hovers well, it transitions well, and it is easy to fly in forward flight. It not only looks good, but it flies great too. I have flown all the ‘pogo-style’ look-a-likes, and the Hyper Taxi has by far the best performance. I attribute these great flight characteristics to the new AS3X stabilization system.
