Horizon Announces Inductrix Switch... Is It Cool?

Blade Inductrix Switch.jpg

The rigid molded plastic of the main quad frame is extremely durable and able to take bumps and crashes. If you do end of cracking the frame, the removable and replaceable ducts make it easy to swap one out without having to replace the whole frame — something owners of previous Inductrix models will surely appreciate. Additionally, conformal coated electronics make the Inductrix Switch splash proof! Land, sea, air... the Inductrix Switch looks like it can handle them all.

The Inductrix Switch is due out in late September, and it will sell as an RTF (Ready-to-Fly/Float) for just $79.99. Will this be the ultimate R/C Christmas gift this year? Is the concept cool? What do you think of this new R/C product? Let us know on our Facebook page.

Today Horizon released information on the brand new Blade Inductrix Switch, a hybrid quadcopter and hovercraft. If features unique snap-in modular design, quickly transforming from a hovercraft to a drone in seconds — no tools are required. The Inductrix Switch has multiple control schemes, one for drone operation, and two for the hovercraft. The molded EPP foam skirt offers solid durability when inevitably bumping into walls, doors, or sliding around outside, and EPP’s anti-dent features will keep the foam skirt looking like-new long after you take it out of the box.

67076-4-Rustler-4x4-VXL-GREEN-Action-07.jpg

Traxxas just announced the vehicle we've been waiting forever to see — the Rustler 4x4 VXL! This new four-wheel-drive Rustler features a new clip-less body system, much like the E-Revo 2.0 and the X-Maxx. It also has new extreme-duty driveshafts, an integrated wheelie bar, a clip-less battery hold-down, and new Talon 2.0 tires. The VXL version, like all of Traxxas' brushless models, do not come with battery or charger, allowing you to pick the perfect combination for you!

Our first delivery model is on the way soon, but if you want one of these bad boys, click that "Pre-Order" button and secure yours today! (Pre-orders are only for in-store pickup). The trucks are supposed to be arriving Mid-October.

The Rustler 4x4 will also be available as a brushed configuration with a NiMH battery and DC charger as well ($299.99).

Blade Ozone Drone Flies In

2018-08-23 10.54.02-1.jpg

With the popular but flawed Dromida Vista now discontinued, we needed a great beginner, outdoor drone to sell — and Blade answered the call. The new Blade Ozone is a remix of the very solid Blade mQX and Blade 180QX from years ago. Proving that good ideas never die, the folks at Blade have made the platform relevant again. It flies very well, and it's simple design emphasizes the Ozone's durability.

The Ozone is Ready-to-Fly out of the box — just charge the battery and take off! The drone sells for $99.99, and extra batteries are available for purchase at just $14.99. Stop in and ask for a demonstration today!

First Delivery Traxxas Slash 4x4 Arrives

Traxxas released their latest new truck out for first delivery, and we've got one! The brushed Slash 4x4 has many of the same great features of the original brushless version but with a lower price point, making it a truck more within reach for many!

The truck swaps out the brushless Velineon system for the venerable XL-5 speed control and the Titan 12T motor seen on the 2WD version of the Slash. It also uses plastic camber links, light-duty steel toe links, and opts for the 2056 servo found in the brushed versions of the Rustler and Stampede.

What isn't sacrificed is the modular chassis design and great handling. While slower than its brushless counterpart, the new Slash 4x4 still handles incredibly well, and since it comes with a battery and charger, it's a complete, ready-to-run package.

The new Slash 4x4 runs $299.99, and will be available for sale in early September.

One of our best-selling park flyer airplanes is back! The Parkzone T-28 Trojan is a superb intermediate-level R/C aircraft, great for pilot who has progressed beyond their initial trainer. It is available as a Plug-N-Play model, meaning you can add your own radio system, battery and charger, or for those with Spektrum equipment, we have the Bind-N-Fly Basic model, which features Horizon's patented AS3X 3-axis gyroscope and SAFE Select, though it still requires you to have a Spektrum 6+ channel programmable radio, a battery, and charger.

Horizon recommends a 2200mAh 3S LiPo for this aircraft.
