Two New Airplanes In Stock

EFLU3950_a9.jpg

Horizon keeps churning out airplanes, and two new ones have recently come into the store: the E-Flite PT-17 and the E-Flite UMX Timber.

The UMX Timber

The UMX Timber

Starting off with the UMX Timber, it brings the features of the larger Timber into the small scale. Like its larger brother, Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) is a specialty of this ultra-micro offering versatile performance that harnesses both friendly flying characteristics and an abundance of power. Right out of the box, the fully-assembled UMX Timber comes complete with functional flaps and oversized wheels. Combined with light wing loading and brushless motor power, getting out and back into tight spaces is possible. Installation of the included leading edge slats means you can land even slower and takeoff in shorter distances. AS3X technology with optional SAFE Select mode means you get the ultimate in control performance no matter when you choose to fly, even if it's a bit windy. Plus the brilliant LED lighting adds a special touch of realism and the ability to buzz the bush after sundown. The UMX Timber BNF-Basic runs $129.99.

The 1.1M PT-17

The 1.1M PT-17

Moving on, the PT-17 has everything you could ask for in a classic biplane. First and foremost is the period-correct 7-cylinder dummy radial engine, complete with intricate ignition and exhaust details. The Navy-inspired trim scheme is highlighted with wing rib and fuselage frame work accented with accessory and paneling detail. Shock-absorbing action of the aluminum struts add functional authenticity you'll appreciate during touchdowns and rolling over grass. While it's easy to be overwhelmed by the scale complexity, getting this beauty in the air requires less effort than you might think. Field assembly features a quick-release wing mounting system, which means no tools are required. Even battery installation is simple through the large magnetic top hatch that accommodates a wide range of 3S LiPo batteries. Unlike the modestly equipped full-scale original, a 15-size brushless outrunner motor delivers ample thrust so you can perform sport aerobatics or just cruise the horizon with power to spare. It's available in both BNF-Basic ($229.99) and Plug-N-Play ($199.99).

New Invezo Stunt Drone in Stock

2017-08-29 17.28.11.jpg

David's enjoying the new Invezo Stunt Drone from Revolution, a new hobby-shop-only brand from Horizon Hobby. The Revolution Invezo Stunt Drone is easy to fly, even if it's your first time. The unique airframe design is durable and helps to protect the rotors from most impacts and crashes. It's small enough to fly almost anywhere indoors, but isn't hard to see or fly like some smaller "micro" drones. Built-in color LED lights vividly display aircraft attitude and orientation, especially in low light conditions or when you're flying upside down.

Once you've mastered the basics of drone flight, the Invezo can take your skills to a higher level. Three different control mode options let you change the rate of agility at the press of a button. Fly slow and smooth or as fast and aggressive as you like. You can also flip upside down to fly inverted or perform full aerial flips at the press of a button. Invezo makes learning to fly a drone and perform stunts easy.

Learn the basics of flight in the Easy control mode, and at the press of a button you can increase the Invezo Stunt Drone's agility with the Pro or 3D control rates. You can also perform full 360° flips or 180° half flips to fly inverted. Upright or inverted, Invezo is easy to fly either way.

The Invezo comes out of the box completely assembled, test flown and ready to fly. Also in the box is everything you need including AAA batteries for the 2.4GHz transmitter. The rechargeable LiPo battery delivers long flight times and the included charger works from almost any computer or USB power source. Even a spare set of rotor blades is provided. That means there's nothing extra to buy and you can be ready to fly within minutes of opening the box.

The Invezo runs only $44.99 and is in stock now!

UMX F-27 FPV Flying Wing In Stock

The Blade Ultra Micro F-27 FPV BNF Basic wing brings the excitement of FPV wing flying in a size that can be flown practically anywhere. Its lightweight Z-Foam airframe features impressive durability to handle bumps or bruises. Take advantage of built-in AS3X stabilization and SAFE technology for the comfort of envelope protection and self-leveling for a confidence-inspiring flight experience. The high-output brushless motor accepts 2S Li-Po batteries to suit mild or wild flying styles, and the 150mW VTX provides crisp, clear video in any environment. Bind-N-Fly Basic completion level means all you have to do is simply add a 2S 280mAh battery and bind it to a compatible Spektrum transmitter.

The UMX F-27 FPV runs $169.99 and is in stock now!

Losi Tenacity Arrives

The Losi Tenacity arrived on our shelves yesterday, it's the first short course truck that has the potential to take business away from the Traxxas Slash 4x4. It has all the usual suspects — a Fuze brushless motor system, Spektrum radio system, and waterproof electronics. It features a new-and-improved AVC that prioritizes steering, so there's no more understeering when AVC is active — a common complaint on previous iterations. Furthermore, since the Tenacity is based on the popular TEN platform, there are loads of upgrades and hop-ups already out there.

The Tenacity is priced at $399.99 and requires a battery and charger; exactly the same as its Traxxas counterpart. Of course, time will tell if the latest Losi truck makes a giant splash or a meager ripple, but I think this truck could at least be a challenger — something no one else has really been able to accomplish in recent memory.

Enter the Artizan

PKZ6975_a13.jpg

The distinctive ParkZone® ArtiZan® park flyer is a nimble, grab-and-go sport plane that's perfect for exploring aerobatics. Its sleek lines, light wing loading and powerful motor provide a superb balance of slow speed stability and high-speed agility. Even the high-visibility trim scheme by Mirco Pecorari of Aircraft Studio Design contributes to its sharp appearance. Anyone with experience flying 4-channel park flyers will feel right at home the first time on the sticks.

Advanced Aerodynamics

Vortex generators on the leading edges of the wings enhance aileron control particularly when flying at slow speeds. Specially designed air inlets and strategically placed vents in the fuselage keep air flowing around critical electric components.

Brushless Outrunner Power System

A high-output 480-Size, 960Kv power system delivers plenty of speed and vertical performance for exploring a wide range of aerobatic maneuvers. An E-flite® 30-amp ESC with a switch-mode BEC cleanly channels power from the battery to the motor.

Durable Construction

The ArtiZan model is constructed of tough Z-Foam™ material. The two-piece wings feature hollow chambers to reduce weight without sacrificing strength. This contributes to the model's light wing loading and superb slow speed flying characteristics. The flexible wire landing gear and large wheels are designed to handle all kinds of abuse. They make it easier to fly off grass too.

Plug-N-Play Finish

The Plug-N-Play® completion level means that the ideal electric motor system and servos you need to enjoy the full potential of the ArtiZan airplane are already installed. All you have to do is perform the final glue-free assembly, and connect your favorite full-range, 4+ channel radio system. In fact, most pilots can have this model flight-ready in the time it takes to install a receiver and charge a battery.

The Artizan PNP sells for $149.99.

    A Classic Returns

    Newly arrived is the Parkzone Stinson Reliant SR-10 as a Plug-N-Play model. Just add your own radio system, battery, and charger, and take to the skies with a classic.

    First introduced in 1938, the Stinson SR-10 is as much a work of art as a work of engineering. The combination of its graceful lines and unique wing shape give you the sense it's reaching for the sky even when it's parked on the ramp. ParkZone developers have expertly modeled this aviation classic to give you a civilian scale experience unlike anything else. It comes out of the box loaded with scale details like an authentic paint scheme and markings, molded ribbing in the wings, a simulated radial engine, accurately modeled landing gear and much more. A robust brushless motor system provides plenty of power for everything from half-throttle cruising to full-throttle sport aerobatics,and  it will do it all with the same smooth sport flying manners you've come to expect from a ParkZone plane.

    The Stinson SR-10 PNP sells for $149.99.
