Here are some of the first shots from the Southern Rotary classic in Mount Pleasant Texas. This years fun fly turned out to be a great event. Check back for more photos and videos soon to be posted.
UPDATE: Full picture gallery of the ENV Nitro has been added.
Team RcHeliResource is on site at the 23rd Annual Southern Rotary Classic. Shown for the first time to the public at this event is the new Curtis Youngblood Rave ENV Nitro 90. Curtis had the ENV Electric 90 on hand at IRCHA, but now we get the first look at the nitro variant.
Shown on Kasama’s web site today are the latest shots of the upcoming SRIMOK 90 Electric. We have been following this story for a while now posting CAD drawings as they are released by Mr. Kasama. Now we get a glimpse of the first real life prototype. In true Kasama style, it’s takes very little from current designs and brings something very unique and fresh to the market. You can bet many of the SRIMOK nitro parts will carry over, but wait to see what is different on the electric version. WARNING this is no simple nitro to electric conversion!
Canomod has just released some lower pricing on their designs. Check them out!
Effective immediately Curtis Youngblood has lowered the price on their very popular Mini-G gyro. The old retail price was $179.99, the new retail price as of today is $158.99 This past season has seen several new gyro products come to the market with very competitive pricing. CY wants to make sure they can still provide a high quality product, but at a competitive price. The Mini-G is the gyro of choice for any size heli from 250 all the way up to 700 electric and nitro. This announcement comes after CY decided in August to discontinue to the Solid-G in favor of the Mini-G as their sole flagship gyro.
OMG this video was just “tipped” to us and I had to post it up. Awesome flight from Tom Erik Rolfson beating this new Raptor Titan 50 SE to death. Flying it more like a lawn mower than a helicopter. Watch!
This one slipped under the radar without much announcement. Looks like Spektrum has released it’s first new servo in a long time and aimed directly at the rc helicopter market. The Spektrum H6040 has some pretty impressive specifications, but then when you see the price you will be VERY impressed! With titanium gears, .08 transit speed, and 167oz torque all for $79.99 looks like Spektrum is going after the title for best bank for the buck budget servo.

Held this past weekend was the 2009 Munich Heli Masters in Munich, Germany.

Eric Weber from Germany, for the second year in a row, took first place on the podium with his Align T-Rex 700. Congratulations to all the pilots! Click to see the full results…
In response to our IRCH 2009 Alan Szabo & Lukas Riva Music Video Trailer these guys have come up with this. Its frickin’ hillarious….
As many of you have seen before, Insane Canopy has been pumping out wild designs at extremely high quality, now you can get the mid range division “Sick Canopy” . Here is the logic behind Insane, Sick Canopy, and Canopy Works: Insane Canopy at highest quality, Sick Canopy will be a bit lower quality and details at affordable price, and Canoopy Works will be good quality at the best price.They currently offer canopies for the Trex 700, 700 V2 shape, Avant Aurora, and the Synergy N9 with prices ranging from $100-150!

If you have had a hard landing with your Kasama SRIMOK 90 then you probably already know the stock carbon fiber landing gear will break. Especially the front which is half the width of the rear. Well Custom Heli Parts has recognized an opportunity to offer a upgrade to SRIMOK owners and released 3.0mm front and rear landing gear. Compared to the stock 2.0mm landing gear these will be much stronger. TIP: If you feel the 3.0mm landing gear is still not enough then you could easily combine the stock and Custom Heli parts together for 5.0mm of strength! Click HERE to order you a set today for your Kasama SRIMOK 90!
Shown at IRCHA this year, and widely anticipated for the past several months, is the new Mikado Logo 500 SE (Special Edition). The Logo 500 SE is a little larger then the previous Logo 500 which allows it to run 600mm main blades on 6S lipo power for some insane 3D action! The Logo 500 SE comes with a V-Bar head only, and with or without the V-Bar electronics.
In the US the new Logo 500 SE w/ V-Bar head is in stock and ready to ship at Ready Heli, click HERE to order yours today!
In the UK and Europe the new Logo 500 SE w/ V-Bar head is in stock and ready to ship at Fast Lad Performance, click HERE to order yours today!
