Hollow structured main wings with reinforced ribs make the wings light and rigid. The large and robust landing gears can take a good beating. The large wheels make it feasible to land on rough roads or short grass. The fuselage is also reinforced to provide extra rigidity to the airframe surrounding the servos and electronic speed controller. The power department is handled by a 850KV outrunner brushless motor supported by a 40amp brushless electronic speed controller. With an 11.1v 2400mah lithium battery, this power system will bail you out of sketchy situations. Two 9 gram and two strong 17gram servos provide authoritative control to the ailerons, elevators, and rudder. Throughout the main wings you will find red and green navigation lights that allow you to determine the orientation of the plane during low light conditions. This ArtTech Devil 500 is sure to be a great flyer for the beginner to advanced pilot looking to have some great fun.

Unboxing: Miss Dara Sport Racer 1280mm (8 min 28 sec)



Get it Here - http://bit.ly/148QyJa

Description:
The Nitro Planes Miss Dara is project that was developed closely with pilots from NMPRA racing. The end result is a wonderfully constructed plane that feels right at home as a sport flyer or a serious racer. A quick glance at the Miss Dara’s airframe and one will understand this plane is designed for serious performance. The airframe is constructed of ply and balsa providing rigidity and lightweight. The high aspect ratio and extra wing area combined with the streamlined airfoil makes this plane extremely smooth around turns. The plane tracks solid and allows for quick and stable “bank and yank” maneuvers. This plane is also capable of performing aerobatic maneuvers. Stall turns, snaps, and rolls emit good handling traits. However knife-edges are a little more difficult due to less rudder authority, but oh do they look so beautiful. The low parts count of this Kit plane make building simple. The fiberglass cowl and included pilot in the removable canopy allow easy access to the motor and electronics. The Miss Dara sport racer is engineered to fulfill your need for speed.

Sport racing planes are not suitable for first-time pilots. However, the Miss Dara is very well suited for amateur Racers. The extra wing area and the high aspect ratio wing platform make the Miss Dara very mild mannered all the way around the field. Pilots with intermediate flying skills and a little tail dragger experience should have no problems. It is recommended to start with a smaller prop for less experienced pilots for easier landing characteristics.

Wingspan: 1280mm
Length: 960mm

ARF - http://bit.ly/17bQJbg

The Airfield Giant Glider is an excellent sailplane for the pilot looking to soar the skies all day on a single charge! With a wingspan of 94.5 inches the Giant Glider will sail the skies for hours as long as you keep it soaring in the thermals. Take it to the cliffs or a beach and enjoy the graceful nature of gliding. Equipped with a brushless outrunner motor and electronic speed controller, this glider does not need to be towed. Toss it in the air and power away with authority. If you get a speed craving convert the power system to the included 65mm ducted fan unit and be exhilarated with speed.

When the wind calms down or the thermals diminish the power setup is enough to help you find that next soaring session. The large wingspan makes for an awesome gliding machine and is one of our finest gliders. Built in wingtips are also molded to ensure a true to scale airfoil allowing the pilot to experience smooth and versatile flying characteristics. This model is at home gliding on a slope. Its thermal sailing performance is exceptional and the wings are sufficiently strong to withstand some aerobatic maneuvers. Like a full-scale counterpart the wing form looks especially graceful and unique in the air. The combination of the low drag horizontal and vertical stabilizers and uncompromised aerodynamic design of the sleek fuselage...Continue Reading

Dynam Smart Trainer 1500MM

Unboxing: Dynam 1500MM Smart Trainer (9 min 45 sec)



Description:
The Dynam Smart trainer was designed from the ground up with the intention of creating a plane with forgiving flight manners while providing a pilot with prominent trainer airborne characteristics. Dynam focused on a design following the principle of form following function and the end result is a funky good looking plane. The entire plane is constructed from EPO foam for durability and light weight. A semi symmetrical fuselage inspired from pattern ships make this plane agile and responsive. Semi symmetrical wings with anti stall aids designed into the wing tips inspire confidence when performing slow maneuvers. This plane is a real pleasure to fly with its delightful and forgiving traits.

The tricycle undercarriage and steering nose wheel make taxing and landing merciful and enjoyable. An ample sized battery compartment will easily accommodate a wide range of 4S batteries providing greater flexibility and flight duration. Mini sized 17gram servos delegate the control surfaces with authority. For its stretched wing span of almost 60" and a 51" fuselage length, the plane is surprisingly lightweight for its size. The powerful Detrum 600Kv Brushless Outrunner motor provides enough power to do vertical climbs and bail you out of a sketchy or failed maneuver. If you should want to stand out from the crowd and truly progress and hone your flying skills the...Continue Reading
