When Parma was dropped by basically every hobby vendor, one of the biggest things we lost was their popular clear servo tape. It came off clean and without residue, something many people liked, but especially those that often switched electronics from one vehicle to another. Thankfully, Racer’s Edge picked up the tape, and now we have it back in stock. The roll sells for $7, and is well worth the cost.
In other news, anyone that’s used allen wrenches for more than ten seconds can tell you how much of a pain they are, but many people still use the wrenches that come included with their ready-to-run vehicles because the nice, aluminum handled wrenches are too expensive, so we were quite pleased to find Racer’s Edge has a high-quality, yet inexpensive, metric wrench set. The set runs just $19.99 and comes with 1.5MM, 2.0MM, and 2.5MM — the standard sizes for most R/C cars and trucks today. The tips are even replaceable!
Both the servo tape and the wrench sets are in stock now!
Some of you, over the last few months, have pointed out our Testors acrylic rack had begun to look a little… empty. This was a direct result of Hobbico’s demise in April — we bought our paint from them, and Horizon continually refuses to sell it by the bottle like Hobbico did, and since we don’t sell enough acrylic paint to justify stocking six of each color at the same time, the rack went without restocking for the entire summer.
Until, that is, we signed up with a new distributor. Heartland Hobby Wholesale, located in Nebraska, has plenty of general hobby products for us to order, and they sell Testors by the bottle — which means our racks are full again! We’re happy to add Heartland to our expanding roster of vendors, and if you’re a Testors acrylic fan, you should be happy too!
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.
