Latrax Alias Quad-Rotor Helicopter
Since 1974 LaTrax has been producing high-performance, high-quality, ready to run R/C Cars at an affordable price. LaTrax is backed by Traxxas, and we know what they have accomplished in the R/C Car world. Now let's see what they can accomplish in the Quad-Rotor world! Their first release in th...

Estes Proto-X SLT Nano Quadcopter
The next generation and subject of this review, the Proto-X SLT. It builds from the success of the Proto-X and adds a couple of exciting features which includes the ability to do flip maneuvers. That is a promise for a lot of fun! I was impressed with the talented pilots who were able to per...

Hobbico's Dromida Ominus FPV Quad
Dromida has now doubled its line of Ominus quads. They have re-vamped the original, installing upgraded propellers, and added a digital camera - but not just ANY camera, this one has FPV capabilities! When modelers used to think about FPV, they thought of bulky screens or goggles strapped to th...

The 61st Annual Weak Signals Toledo Expo 2015
Hello, and welcome to the new format for RCUniverse's coverage of the Weak Signal's Toledo Expo. It seems as though our coverage has gotten a little stale over the years, so we tried to change it up this year. Instead of one long article where we talk about all the great new product we saw, we ...

Weak Signals Toledo Show 2015 - Stepcraft
Some of you may remember Erick Royer from his days at RCUniverse. Well, these days, Erick is working on a new business called Stepcraft. What is Stepcraft? I'm glad you asked! Erick had brought an all-in-one CNC machine to the hobbyist at prices the hobbyist can afford! There are currently thre...

Weak Signals Toledo Show 2015 - JR Americas
We stopped by the JR Americas booth to see what was new, and Len Sabato gave us the latest and greatest. They were debuting a new ready to fly quadcopter, gave us some great information on the 28x transmitter, and Len told us about the great incentive programs that JR Americas has! Check out th...

Weak Signals Toledo Show 2015 - Hitec
Hitec is another one of our 'just have to' stops, and they had three new items for us to see this year. They had a graceful powered glider and two new action cameras, and all three looked like best sellers! We caught up with Shawn Spiker, and he gave us the low down on these new items.

Weak Signals Toledo Show 2015 - Micro Fasteners
Micro Fasteners is one of those places that we stop at every year - they have great products, and you can buy nuts, bolts, and screws in larger quantities than you can get at your local hobby shop. It's fine if you need just four of a type of screw or bolt, but what do you do when you need 50 o...

Tactic TTX850 2.4gHz SLT Transmitter
They've got a lengthy list of features as well - between the quad-bearing gimbals and high-resolution backlit LCD display, it appears that this new transmitter has something for everyone. But wait, Tactic is also telling us that the TTX850 is affordable AND includes all these features? This I h...

Heli-Max 200FP V-CAM RTF Fixed-Pitch Heli
Recently, Heli-Max has been releasing quadcopters to keep up with the demands for these stable aircraft. They haven't forgotten about the true heli lovers, and just released a new fixed-pitch helicopter - the 200FP. Though they previously had a heli in this class, Heli-Max has redesigned it, an...

Ares Optim 80 CP Helicopter RTF
Ares and Firelands products are distributed in the US by Hobbytown.com, who recently asked if I'd review their new entry in the popular Micro Helicopter category. I'm a regular customer at Hobbytown, so I naturally jumped at the opportunity to try out this little Collective pitch aerobatic heli...

Graupner Polaron EX Charger Combo
When you have a rechargeable battery, you're going to need a way to recharge it - this can be as simple as a 'wall wart' or basic charger. Beyond that, the sky (and your wallet) are the limit! Now, I have a pair of chargers that have taken care of my charging needs pretty well. They're simple t...

Dromida Kodo Micro Quad
"You can pay two — even three — times more for a camera-equipped quad if you want to. But why would you do that when you can have the KODO for just $59.99? It's as complete as any ready-to-fly quad out there, shoots crystal-clear photos and videos, does flips at the touch of a button and measur...

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...

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! ...

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!

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...

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...
