Which new good things in 2003!?


What do you think in which part of our hobby will be the greatest progress?
Is this motors (particular brushless technology), ESC, batteries or something else. Will be prices go down? What is your expectation?

LiPoly technology will hit the masses, prices will continue to drop, and 20 minute flight times will become the norm. Micro R/C will continue to expand very rapidly - thanks to DWE's RFFS, new actuators, new manufacturers gearing up for micros aerobatic planes - and we will see a pattern plane at 1 ounce. (Dan, we are going to get a 4-channel RFFS, correct - please say 'yes'). If Dan does say 'yes' then we will also have 1 or 2 ounce helicopters flying...

What Mike said.

Don't worry, we have faith in Dan.

Who would have believed a $49 MP Jet brushless motor and gearbox?

Or how about a $169 Extra 300S ARF from Graupner?

The kits used to cost that before you even bought MonoKote!

You never get bored with this hobby but I wish the weather was controllable!

Should we look to Piezo motors in 2003?
