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.

Estes Proto X Nano Quadcopter RTF
'Technology has come a long way since this morning....' Just this month I saw the Estes Proto X Quad, arguably the smallest production Quad copter in the world. I was more than amazed; I was speechless, which is NOT something that comes naturally to me. When I was offered one to review, I jumpe...

Heli-Max EC145
The number of small helicopters available on the market has boomed over the past few years, thanks to the development of very light power packages and great improvement on the stabilization systems. Yet, the structure had to be kept as light as possible, and it is rare to find a scale looking h...

Traxxas DR-1 Coaxial Dual-Rotor Helicopter
If you're looking for something you can learn to fly in your own living room, (at night, during the winter even) you'd do well to grab a Traxxas DR-1 before the winter blahs set in. It's very stable, affordable, has outstanding US based product support and just plain fun!

Traxxas QR-1 Quad Rotor Helicopter
The QR-1 lifted off and settled into a nice eye level hover. a couple clicks of trim was all it took to get a decent, nearly hands off hover. The little QR-1 has an impressive amount of power in a very small package.

The Southern Minnesota Model Aircraft Club Watts Over Owatonna 2013
It was a beautiful sunny morning in August 2013, when we arrived at the field. Endless blue skies, freshly clipped manicured grass, not a breath of wind. Flags hung limply among vendors tents, the smell was not of castor oil or kerosene but rather of pancakes and coffee. The 700 foot runway bec...

Helimax 100FP Tx-R
As the 100FP is a fixed pitch heli, it is not designed for 3D flying nor will it accomodate for it. Aerobatics with this heli is not going to wow the crowd, but it might twist a couple of brain cells to the new comer to heli. Once all the translations are mastered and the pilot can turn this he...

Week Signals Toledo RC Expo 2013
They say that people who live in places with famous landmarks often don't take the time to visit those same landmarks. I'm originally from New York City and I must admit, I was in the 9th grade by the time I ever actually went up inside the Statue of Liberty. When the opportunity arose for me t...

RTL Fasteners #992 Complete Metric Assortment
If your workshop would make Sanford and Son proud, then a little bit of organization could go a long way for you. As many times as I have been digging through bins of nuts and bolts looking for the proper size, thread, and length for the project at hand, you would think I would have learned a l...
