Ares Exera 130CX
It seems that everywhere I look, I see 'toy' helicopters. All the stores are carrying the latest models of the little coaxial helis - the problem is that they are just what they're being sold as - toys. When it comes to hobby grade coaxial helicopters, there's several on the market as well. The...

Helion Dominus 10SCv2
The Helion Dominus SCv2 is a short course 4x4 truck, and it's a crowded space filled with many choices and price ranges. This vehicle package finds itself right in the middle to low end of the market in terms of price at $289.99. If there is value in the package is what we need to determine, an...

Heli-Max 1Si
The 1Si is not short of impressive functionalities and it is with excitement that I saw one delivered at my door for review. The 1Si exists in two flavors: with the camera or without. All versions of these quads come with a remote control. The 1Si we are testing today has the HD camera.

The 60th Annual Weak Signals RC Expo was held on April 4-6 2014 at the Seagate Convention Center in the lovely city of Toledo, Ohio. Last year was my first year not only attending but also covering the event for RCUniverse. It was a pile of fun, but this year was even better! This year was a bi...

Dave's R/C Electronics SafeStart
SafeStart is an electronic safe guard that lets the modeler plug in his or her battery and have full control of the model, without having to worry about the throttle being advanced accidently. This makes it easy to make adjustments to control surfaces on an airplane or adjust steering on an R/C...

Sig XA41 Sbach 300
Flying the Sbach was pure fun. Once I had gotten comfortable with it, knife edge flight was great. A little down elevator was required for it to hold a straight line, which can be either "mixed out" with your computer radio, or you can do it "old school" and simply hold in the elevator command.

Aeroworks Laser ARF

Maxford USA Hansa-Brandenburg ARF with Skis
Here's one of the later additions to Maxford USA's lineup. Maxford USA has been a great company to offer a wide array of aircraft that are not often produced as ARF planes. As far as I know, prior to this offering, a HB W.29 ARF has not been available. So, if you wanted to fly one of these inte...

Best Pilots realistic looking pilot figures
I have been in the RC hobby for a long time and one thing that has always bothered me was that it has been next to impossible to find realistic looking pilot figures. I had always thought that many of the pilot figures available simply weren't molded in a manner that made them look like real-li...

Aeroworks 20cc-30cc Trainer GT ARF-QB
Every year I attend the Weak Signals RC Show held in Toledo, Ohio, more commonly called "The Toledo Show". One booth I always look forward to seeing is the Aeroworks booth, because I want to see what new planes they have each year. Over the years I've really liked a lot of Aeroworks planes and ...

Esprit Model Standbox System
The standbox is a unique product for our hobby. The product is marketed as a 4-in-1 unit with the main functions being storage, transportation, workstation and flexibility. I do not think that flexibility is a function but rather a feature so this to me is really a 3-in-1 product but neverthele...
