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...

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.

Weak Signals 60th Annual RC Expo - Toledo 2014
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...

Ares Chronos CX100 Coaxial Helicopter RTF w/Camera
The recently released Ares Chronos CX100 Co-Axial helicopter has been touted as the 'Easiest, most affordable way to shoot video with RC'. One found its way to my office to be reviewed for RCUniverse and I can confidently say this little helicopter does what it's meant to do. Ares is no newcome...

Heli-Max AXE 100 CX
"To fly the Axe 100 CX, all you really need is to own one. You can successfully pilot this helicopter even if it's your very first R/C model. You'll enjoy confidence-boosting stability from its coaxial rotor head design, plus impressive crash-resistance that comes to your rescue during any unex...

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...
