Ares Ethos HD and FPV
Meet the Ethos HD and FPV - as their names indicate, one carries an HD camera while the other has FPV equipment. The HD version sports a full 1080p digital video camera that will take still pictures at the same time. The FPV version incorporates FPV equipment, as well as a 720p digital video ca...

RCGF 60cc Twin Cylinder Gasoline Engine
While RC gas engines have been around for quite a while, the demand for high quality twin cylinder variants is fairly recent. But these twins have come a long way in a short time! The RCGF 60cc twin is relatively new on the market, but definitely fits the 'high quality' definition. So, let's...

SIG T-Clips 70 EG ARF
Though just in the prototype stage, the guys from SIG had a new T-Clips 70 at the 60th Annual Toledo Expo. Having reviewed the original, I was enamored with all of the refinements they had made to the new version. Now, I could tell you about the lengthened wingspan and fuselage, the clear winds...

Ares Ethos PQ
It seems as though every model company has at least one multi-rotor aircraft in their lineup. Ares (pronounced Air-Ease) has several. They have higher end models that incorporate FPV and HD video equipment, and some less expensive ones as well. The less expensive nomenclature is where the Ethos...

Sig Somethin' Xtra EG
I flew the original kit version way back when it was first introduced and loved it, so when Sig's Vice President Mike Gretz asked me if I'd like to try out the new version, I jumped at the opportunity. I would discover very quickly that the new design flies every bit as good as the old one had,...

Dromida Ominus Quad
When I opened the shipping box, one of the first things I read on the container was 'nearly indestructible'. This piqued my interest right away! I've been interested in quads for a while now, but when Dromida released one that is supposedly 'nearly indestructible', I had to put it to the test! ...

The World Models Ultimate Biplane 27% (50cc) ARF
A little extra power never hurt anything, so I figured the plane and engine would go well together. The 27% Ultimate has been an offering from the World Models for several years now, but after chatting with Fai Chan (Airborne Models), we decided it was a good time for a review! Time to open...

The Southern Minnesota Model Aircraft Club (SMMAC) Watts over Owatonna 2014
The Southern Minnesota Model Aircraft Club (SMMAC) is the host of several warbird and giant scale events, but for the last five years running, SMMAC has been the host of "Watts Over Owatonna," which is quickly becoming the premier 'electric only' event in the Midwest. Located roughly 40 mile...

Warbirds Over the Rockies 2014
Now in its 11th year, Warbirds Over the Rockies has become one of the country's best warbird fly-ins for RC warbirds, and it has become a favorite for me to cover as well. Brian O'meara, the event coordinator, has worked tirelessly over the years to improve the event and continues each year to ...

Great Planes Factor 3D
The Factor 3D from Great Planes is a conveniently sized electric airframe that is intended to give pilots an unlimited flight envelope. The design of the Factor 3D is typical for a small 3D airframe with a two piece wing, large control surfaces and short/precise linkages to the control surfaces...

Hobby People G-46 BL Power System
So whether you're converting an older glow powered plane, or starting with a fresh kit or ARF, one thing remains the same - you'll need a power system. The power system is comprised of an electric motor, a motor speed controller, and a battery. These days, almost every aircraft is using brushle...

The World Models Jeff Troy's TAMEcat DF Trainer
Meet the TAMEcat - the airframe itself is not new, and in fact, has now been made in three different versions. The TAMEcat started life as a .40 sized trainer-type plane, with a propeller at the front. Next, came a smaller electric version, again sporting a propeller in the nose. The latest off...

LHS Electronics Lektron Compact Charger
The Lektron 35 Watt charger, made by LHS Electronics and distributed by Hobby People, claims to do just that! Simply plug in the battery, select the type of battery you're charging, and the charger will do the rest. Again, it seemed too good to be true, so I had to put it to the test!

The World Models P-47D Thunderbolt
While not a new release from the World Models, I felt that their 1/7th scale P-47 deserved a proper product review. It's been around for several years already, and many people have already purchased it. I like its size - designed for a 1.20 4-stroke, it makes for an easy gas engine conversion. ...

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...
