The E-flite Valiant 1.3m park flyer is a downsized version of the big Hangar 9 Valiant 30cc ARF.

This Plug-N-Play version comes with the motor, ESC and servos installed. All you need to do is finish some final assembly, install the receiver, charge a battery and fly.

The SEAWIND is an amphibian of the latest generation. When the installed landing gear is retracted, the landing skid in the middle of the fuselage comes out and allows for take-offs and touch-downs on the water. The SEAWIND from Staufenbiel is a real eye-catcher. In the air, on land and on water.
DLG stands for Discus Lauch Glider. The DEE-L-GEE by Staufenbiel is the perfect model to entry this class. It’s made of ultra-light EPO foam for wingspan, rudder & vertical stabilizer, wingspan use full carbon fiber reinforced, make sure the strength of wing.

Few modelling experiences can be as fulfilling as catching a thermal from a model launched by hand, with no other energy source involved. Until now, this experience has been out of reach to non-expert modelers for a variety of reasons. The E-flite® UMX™ Whipit™ DLG glider is for everyone regardless of experience level.
The E-flite® UMX™ Radian is a powered sailplane that packs all the simple fun of the larger ParkZone® Radian into a much smaller package that’s an absolute delight to fly. AS3X® technology gives a pilot the feeling of flying a much larger glider especially outdoors because of its renowned ability to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. Its distinctively curved wing delivers outstanding lift and impressive glide ratio using 3-channel control simplicity. The lightweight brushed power system requires just a single-cell Li-Po battery to provide excellent launch performance and long flight times.
A fantastic little drone. The time has come for Electric Ducted Fans (EDF) to replace the old propeller thrust systems. By design, the cylindrical rotor housings add significant durability and produce less noise when carefully tuned. The Blade® Inductrix™ ultra micro drone is part jet and part quadcopter, with the kind of innovative flight technology that gives a machine you can fly just about anywhere, the performance edge that makes your flight experience more fun.
The tiny Nano QX is RC flying fun you can take with you everywhere. The Nano QX weighs little more than half an ounce and is small enough to fly in spaces no bigger than an office cubicle. Never flown a quad-copter before? No problem. The Nano QX uses the SAFE™ technology system with sophisticated flight control software to keep itself stable in a hover while in stability mode. If you get in trouble, just let go of the sticks. The SAFE technology system will bring the Nano QX back to a hover all by itself. Once you've mastered the basics, you can switch the SAFE system to agility mode for faster flying speeds and more maneuverability.
The original Blade® 120 SR heli was specifically designed to provide the inherent stability of a coaxial helicopter and the agile control of a single-rotor helicopter. Modeled after the popular ultra micro-size Blade mSR heli, the larger 120 SR heli was faster and more powerful so it could be flown outdoors. Now that concept takes a leap forward with simpler mechanics and the superiority of SAFE® technology so that pilots master the basics of single-rotor flight more easily.
The brainchild of the same visionaries behind the Mustang, the first generation Bronco featured a unique chassis engineered to drive boldly where the pavement ends.

Its proven Ascender™ chassis features stamped-steel ladder frames, over 45° of steering travel and one of the most capable off-road suspensions available.
