Two New Airplanes In Stock

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 in Stock: E-Flite UMX Waco

Newly arrived in our store is the E-Flite UMX Waco BL BNF Basic ($129.99). It features classic scale details, a wide flight envelope, brushless power, and a steerable tail wheel. The UMX waco uses a 2S 200mAh - 280mAh battery, and requires both the battery and the charger, which are sold separately.

The Waco also boasts Horizon's exclusive AS3X stabilization system, making it easier for this micro airplane to fly outdoors.

If classic looks are your thing, hurry in and pick one up!

New E-Flite Valiant 1.3M Airplane In Stock!

Arriving this week is the new E-Flite Valiant Bind-N-Fly Basic. With a 53" wingspan, the Valiant is one of the largest of the recent crop of airplanes that E-Flite and Horizon has released. From the Horizon website:

"The Valiant 1.3m park flyer is a downsized version of the big Hangar 9 Valiant 30cc ARF. Like its giant-scale sibling, it has the inherent stability of a classic high-wing model but with more modern lines and larger control surfaces that can provide sporty response when you want it. This Bind-N-Fly® version comes with the added benefit of a Spektrum™ AS3X receiver that features optional SAFE Select technology."

The Valiant sells for $199.99 for the BNF-Basic setup. Stop in and check out this slick aircraft for yourself! 

Take Off with the Convergence VTOL
