Weekly News Update: New Planes, Old Friends


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.


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!


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!


Traxxas Raptor Back in Stock

We have restocked our Traxxas Ford Raptors! Two are in stock now, so if you've had your eye on one, pick it up soon! $249.99 and nothing else to buy.
