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 ...

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...

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.

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...
