Spektrum iX12 Arrives

2018-01-20 11.32.36.jpg

If you're one of the many R/C pilots looking for a radio upgrade this year, look no further. Spektrum's hotly anticipated iX12 12-Channel radio system has arrived. The transmitter is powered by Android with a capacitive 4" color touchscreen display. The radio boasts both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and can be updated in the Google Play store (which they recommend doing before using for the first time). Download the YouTube app for quick tutorial videos at the field, play some music with Bluetooth headphones, and more! The iX12 transmitter sells for $599.99 on its own, or $699.99 with an AR9030T 9-channel telemetry receiver. We have the receiver-less one on the shelf for now.

Stop in and take it for a spin, and check out the tutorial videos Horizon Hobby posted to one of their YouTube channels - they are going to be a great help for first-time users! I have the current ones below, but there may be more in the future. Here's a link to the entire playlist on YouTube. For more information on the radio itself, check out Spektrum's product page on the iX12.

The HobbyZone Carbon Cub S+ arrived this week! Whether you've never flown R/C before or you got your first taste of flying with a multirotor drone, the Carbon Cub S+ is the most versatile beginner's R/C airplane yet. Based on the Carbon Cub by Cub Crafters, an upgraded and thoroughly modern iteration of the classic Super Cub, and equipped with Horizon's SAFE Plus GPS-enabled technology, this scale reproduction makes it easier to learn to fly in less time than ever before. Features including AutoLand, Holding Pattern and Virtual Fence make it easy for almost anyone to fly successfully from their very first flight, while additional features including oversized tundra tires and optional flaps and floats offer the capability and versatility to fly from almost any surface, anywhere.

The Carbon Cub S+ is available as a Ready-to-Fly for $259.99, or Bind-N-Fly Basic for $219.99.

The other airplane to grace our shelves this week is the UMX Aero-Commander. The E-flite UMX Aero Commander brings the twin-engine icon to life with bountiful brushless power, aerobatic capabilities and exclusive AS3X technology for an overall flight experience that feels rock-solid enough to double your ultra-micro fun. The lightweight airframe boasts a carbon-fiber reinforced wing for added durability and performance. Careful attention to the scale outline highlights a detail list that includes panel lines and a vivid three-color trim scheme. The powerful twin-motor power system features a pair of brushless outrunners and three-blade props to deliver that exciting multi-engine sound. Independent linear servos provide the accuracy and performance to enjoy sport aerobatics such as point rolls and big loops with precision while AS3X technology delivers the ultimate in control, even if it's a bit windy.

Pick up your Aero Commander as a Bind-N-Fly Basic today for only $149.99!

New TRX-4 Tactical Announced

82066-4-Tactical-Outdoor-01.jpg

If you thought the TRX-4 from Traxxas couldn't get any cooler, you just lost that bet. On Thursday, Traxxas announced the new TRX-4 Tactical truck, a variation of the popular new crawling platform. This truck seems to have all the fixin's that the Defender does, but with a military-esque design.

It still features the two-speed transmission, the remote-locking differentials, and aluminum GTR crawler shocks, but adds the new lightweight body to lower the overall center of gravity of the truck for greater speeds, tighter handling, and improved technical crawling, which sounds like a win for all the guys who feel the Defender body is too heavy. Also new are the military-inspired wheels for that, well, tactical feel.

Oh, and they're going to sell for only $419.99, a drop in price of $30 compared to the Defender!

It's due to be available early November, so get your pre-order in right away!

New Mini Monster In Stock

2017-10-13 10.07.49.jpg

Horizon's hobby-shop only brand, Revolution, has released their new 1:12 scale monster truck, the Forge MT, and we have them! It's available in two colors and comes with everything you need in the box for only $99.99! The best aspect of the truck, though, is that when compared to other similarly priced trucks, the Forge MT is much larger; we also stock the Dromida 1:18 Monster Truck at the same price, but it's tiny compared to the Forge MT. This means the Forge will likely be able to tackle rougher terrain, and maybe even grass.

Stop in and check it out - it will make a great Christmas gift for any R/C beginner!

Weekly News Update: New Planes, Old Friends

ECX03333T2_a2.jpg

ECX Returns

We've begun to carry some ECX vehicles again, after dropping them back in 2013. They have made some significant improvements since then, and the time was right to bring them back into the Roger's Hobby Center fold.

You can currently find the AMP Desert Buggy ($139.99), the Circuit stadium truck ($179.99), and the Torment short course truck ($199.99) on the shelf, and if they do well, more vehicles will be on the way.

Additionally, look for ECX hop-ups in the coming weeks as well!

E-Flite Cirrus SR22T

Also new was the E-Flite Cirrus ST22T Plug-N-Play ($199.99) and Bind-N-Fly Basic ($229.99). This slick single-engine civilian aircraft is equipped with functional navigation and internal lights, among other scale details. Powered by a relatively big Power 10 E-Flite motor, this 1.5-meter airplane will be a must-have for fans of civilian R/C aircraft.

RVOF1200_a13.jpg

Revolution Ascent SPx

The Revolution Ascent Single Pusher is a good-sized beginner airplane for a great price: it's running just $99.99 for a nearly 30'' wingspan. It will be at its best flying in a park or similar large, open space. Maybe a good choice for a Christmas gift? We'll see!

EFLU5850_a15.jpg

UMX Aero-Commander

Yesterday E-Flite announced a new UMX airplane, the twin engine Aero Commander. Powered by two brushless motors and requiring a 450-800mAh 2S LiPo battery (sold separately), this 28.15" wingspan aircraft stretches the definition of UMX, but I suspect it will be a popular airplane nonetheless. It will run $149.99 for a Bind-N-Fly Basic model when it comes out early November. Stop in or give us a call and pre-order one today - no down payment required!
