Some of you may have noticed that, after our inital shipment of Traxxas quadcopters sold, we didn't get anymore in. We won't be carrying the Traxxas quadcopters for the foreseeable future. Neither will we be stocking the DR-1 coaxial helicopter. Here's the explanation why, posted to our Store Blog.
The Traxxas QR-1 Quadcopter is finally on our shelves. We only have one at the moment, but expect more in on Thursday. They are priced at $84.99 for the Ready to Fly model. I have test flown one and they are a bit squirrely at first, but very stable once you get the hang of it. The radio feels comfortable in the hand as well, with gimbals about as nice as the stock Blade controller.
Since demand for these is expected to be high, we don't have a demo model at this point - we wanted all of the available helis for our customers. We'll be getting a demo soon, though. So stop in and pick up your QR-1 today, be it for yourself or as a Christmas gift!
You've waited patiently for this. Finally, the Traxxas Rally 1/10th scale car is now in stock! Stop in and check out the new low-center-of-gravity chassis and all of the modifications made for it to work. The body is wicked cool looking, a sharp orange color that isn't nearly as cool looking in the pictures as it is in real life.
Stop in today and take a look at it! We only have one, so make sure you get to see it before someone buys it! Or you could just buy it yourself and not have to worry!
In addition to the new Traxxas DR-1 helicopter, they also announced a quadcopter. Dubbed the QR-1 (again, I'm assuming that stands for Quad Rotor), the thing is only 4.7" square. It comes with a 240mAh LiPo battery, a dual-battery USB-powered charger, and a 2.4GHz radio. It features a six-axis stabilization suite, and allows for some flips and rolls in expert mode. Street price looks to be between $85 and $90.
As we reported on back in September, Traxxas was rumored to be releasing some R/C helicopters by the end of the year. Well, this has come to pass. Today, Traxxas announced two helicopters. The first is the DR-1 (I assume "DR" stands for Dual Rotor). It's a coaxial helicopter with 4-channel control. It comes with a massive 450mAh 1S LiPo battery and a USB-powered charger. On board, an aluminum frame holds everything together, and a gyro keeps you in control. Street price for the Ready-To-Fly version looks to be around $85 - $90.
