Walkera has been around for years providing affordable, ready to fly electric models for very low prices. We just received the new, all metal, brushless 4G3 helicopter from Walkera, a full 3d, collective pitch model about half the size of the 250. Read on to find out what the verdict is on this micro chopper.
Here’s a preview on Eagle Tree Systems’ latest data logger, the eLogger V3.
Here’s a short video of G-Force Heli’s new ProStart V9 starter adapter for your cordless drill!
It took an act of God but we got our hands on one of the new Align Super Starters (for Helis). We just got it last night as soon as it hit the U.S. but we haven’t had a chance to test it out yet. Check out the full hands on inside with tons of pics.[singlepic=11820,480,,,center]
We now have our own signature canopy for the Kasama Srimok! You know the Rcheliresource crew is on hand when you see this at a funfly. Canomod is also painting up canopies for the Srimok, check them out!
Canomod is comming out with a full line of quality canopies for the Trex 450 Pro from Align. So far only 3 designs are availible, Phantom, Pusio, and Salvate. There will be more popular designs comming soon! They are priced at 60$ as of now. Visit www.canomod.com for more canopies!
Canomod is releasing “hybrid” canopy models, priced very low at only $65. We can assume this is Canomod’s answer to HeliDirects popular Fusuno design. Both brands boast high quality automotive paint and creative designs.
Brought to you by RCPrecisionHeli.com and in association with IRCHA, the 2009 Jamboree will be hosting a “Rookie-only” AMA Class I contest on Saturday, August 15th.
What is an AMA Class I contest? Well it’s a precision aerobatic helicopter contest for beginners, think pattern flying only for helis. This class consists of three hovering maneuvers and five flying maneuvers, all maneuvers are easily performed by any beginning or advanced sport pilot.
Contestants will fly two rounds on Saturday, one in the morning and one in the afternoon (allowing time in between for people to catch noon-time demos) and the combined scores will determine the winners. The contest will be judged by experienced AMA Class I judges.
With both Curtis Youngboold Enterprises and MRC/Hirobo donating a Rave 90 ENV and HIrobo Freya EVO 90 respectively, the winner will receive the kit of their choice, and the runner up securing the other kit.
But prizes don’t end there. With major donations showing up every day we are hopeful for a deep prize pool. So, if you want a shot at a major .90 sized heli, be sure to enter the RCPH Heli Contest.
Please note: Due to production timelines and availability the NextD Rave 90 ENV, will not be available at IRCHA. However, the winner will receive a coupon for one of the first production kits available from NextD. A special thanks goes out to Curtis Youngblood of NextD and Greg Gomes of MRC for offering such great prizes.

Here is a video produced by Team Mikado at 3DMasters 2009. I better step up my game. I think I can top this. Some of this video is outstanding however. My music track is smashing this. Hats off to the editor. I am jealous how fast he got this out. I wish mine was up already. Thanks for promoting the sport!
Thanks Uwe Grazow. See more at Mikado-Heli.De.

We were on hand and have shot over 300 inidividual video clips of 3D Masters 2009 in Murcia Spain. Our sponsorship of 3D Masters gave us unprecedented photo and video access to the event surpassing past US media providers.
I know that you all are waiting for them and they are being processed. This post will contain all of the videos for 3DMasters so keep checking back for it to be updated.[singlepic=11127,480,,,center]
To sum it all up, “What an experience!” 3DMasters 2009 was a hit. I have always desired to travel to England with my Vegas neighbors Danny and Alan Szabo in past years but was never fortunate enough until the support this site has gained has afforded us an opportunity to goto this spectacular event. I have never been to XFC as well….but I imagine that it is just as spectacular even though I am not a big fan of RC Airplanes.[SinglePic not found]
