JR is releasing a new micro gyro at a great price!
We check out KDE Direct’s new Align T-Rex 500 Tail Performance V2 Upgrade kit!
Models: direct bolt-on for the TREX 700N Electronic Motor Mount Upgrade (M4/M3 x 25 mm)
The ALIGN TREX 700N Electronic Pinion Support is a direct bolt-on to the TREX 700N Electronic Motor Mount Upgrade, included in the KDE Direct TREX 700N Electronic Conversion XKit/Kits and sold separately. The Pinion Support includes all necessary hardware to mount to all M3 or M4 x 25mm spacing motors, which accommodates the majority of Brushless Motors on the market for the TREX 700. The Electronic Pinion Support is the first to include a dual-oversized bearing support above the pinion for rock-solid support of the motor shaft; significantly increasing the life of the motor bearings, preventing high-stress breakage of the motor shaft during hard 3D flight, and drastically decreasing the chance of premature wear and stripping of the main gear.
Update: An M4 x 30mm spacing version will be available soon (for all Kontronik Pyro series motors).

KONTRONIK announces cooperation with Ready-RC
High-end manufacturer KONTRONIK reorganizes its North American business and names Ready-RC as distributor for the North American market.
Pilots value their hobby – and so do we. KONTRONIK and Ready-RC both work on making RC modeling what it is: an experience of power, control and fun. Together with retailers like Florida based Ready-Heli and Esprit Model, KONTRONIK aims at pursuing perfection in electric model applications. Being a leading force in development of ESCs and electric motors KONTRONIK clearly focuses on Quality, Service & Innovation. From Helicopters to Hot liners, from Sailplanes to Acrobatics, from Powerboats to Cars – KONTRONIK puts more than 15 years of experience into developing and improving electric motors and ESCs.
Ready-RC with its network in RC model applications and its 100% service orientation is the perfectly matching partner for distributing KONTRONIK products. Ready-RC’s experience with retailers and manufacturers and its open ear for pilots’ demands make Ready-RC a highly respected player in the RC community.
To better serve American model pilots Ready-RC and KONTRONIK formed a partnership that brings together American service attitude and German engineering. Via a network of licensed dealers KONTRONIK and Ready-RC ensure qualified support and product availability on the North American market. Pilots can identify licensed dealers from the official “KONTRONIK Licensed Dealer” logo. Dealer inquires should be directed to www.KONTRONIKUSA.com.
KONTRONIK and Ready-RC share the attitude that every pilot should be able to realize the maximum level of power at a maximum level of control.
And a maximum level of fun.
