Had a Fly with the New T-Rex 150!!

I had a fly with the upcoming Align T-Rex 150 yesterday…and I have to say I am very impressed. Rock solid in the hover, practically hands off, but very positive response, excellent power and an incredibly locked in tail in all 3D maneuvers. First impressions…it’s gonna be VERY popular. Out the box compatibility with all Futaba FHSS transmitters and also compatible with all Spektrum/JR DSM2/DSMX transmitters (6 Channels or more) For use with Spektrum/JR you will also require a satellite receiver.

Pre-orders and pricing will be confirmed very soon, so watch this space. ‘Hopefully’ in time for Xmas…

Anybody wanting to get their name on a list please drop us a quick email or phonecall and we will contact you once pre-orders are available so you can get in early.

Avant announces the Mostro Line of Radio Control Helicopters

Out of the blue comes an announcement of a new range of helicopters from Avant RC. This new range have been designed to accommodate a modular design with the ability to switch between nitro or electric variants very easily. Even today, some 7 years after release, the Avant Aurora is still viewed as one of the best performing RC Helicopters on the market in a lot of consumers eyes. It is great to see a new design that still looks back at the appearance of the Aurora so as to easily identify this new model as an Avant RC design.

Pricing is expected to be around £700.00 here in the UK and release is said to be around late September….fingers crossed :-)

We will be officially taking pre-orders once pricing is set. In the meantime anybody wanting to pre-register interest in it please drop us an email at mostro@modelhelicopters.co.uk

ALIGN Announce the new T-Rex 450L Dominator

Align have started showing pictures of the upcoming Trex 450l Dominator. It has a new quick release battery holder,  very similar in function to the popular Align Trex 700E. The L in the name unsurprisingly indicates it has a longer boom allowing the use of 350mm length main rotor blades. The canopy seems to be following the theme of aligns recent releases elsewhere in their range. More information will follow as we have it and we will start taking preorders as soon as the price and release date are announced.
