This year the Hobby People Super Store had a sizeable inventory of RC related products and scores of people filed in all day long to view and purchase. Some of the workers stated that the booth/super store was extremely active all day and many people went home with some great deals.
Horizon Hobby had their entire lineup of micro aircraft on display, including many that are now equipped with the new AS3X flight stabilization system. In the middle of the table, note the newer Spitfire on display — great to see micro warbirds that are easier to fly! The Icon seaplane is at top.
Global’s Tim Johnson was on hand to show how the Spy Hawk works. This airplane comes ready to fly out of the box and is equipped with a 5 megapixel video camera and a 2.4GHz transmitter that shows you exactly what the plane is seeing. Now you can be a drone pilot, too!

See our […]

Congratulations to Futaba for their 18MZ. [kaltura-widget […]
Our innovation of the year is a stabilization system that makes planes easier to fly, by allowing us to concentrate on piloting instead of making corrections for wind and tracking. This system is especially suited to smaller indoor planes that are notoriously difficult to fly. For making RC planes easier and more fun to fly, […]
Our helicopter of the year is a high-quality machine that’s the ideal size for serious RC flying. It has a very high power-to-weight ratio for unlimited aerobatics and has a commanding presence in the air. With a flybarless system, it can be set up as trainer or as an unlimited 3D machine.
