FHX and MH-35 Heli's, which were released to the public on that night, my first picture is of the delightful little machine, the first change one notices from other Micro contra-rotating blade setups, being what appeared to be a back-to-front exhaust box sticking out the front of the machine. In actuality, that is the “machine gun.” In some of the pictures you will also notice two orange buttons on the underside of the transmitter, which operate the guns.

Finally, dear friends, I must mention the quite large, spidery contraption that Peter brought with him. I say spidery for it did remind me of “Spiderman” climbing up a tall building with arms and legs outstretched. The difference in this piece of fascinating machinery is that three E-Flite electric brushless motors are mounted on the end of each arm, which, in fact, began life as the tail booms of model helicopters. This is a Tri-copter and to say that it rises in ultra-steady flight in Peter’s hands, would be an understatement. I did take a couple or more shots of this model in flight but its absolute “stelth” appearance made the images quite useless to use in this epistle. You may recall seeing Peter’s delightful r/c rocket which rose from a vertical tail stand, leveled out, did a few circuits and then slowly and gracefully lowered back onto the tail for landing. This tri-copter joins Peter’s collection of “amazing machines.” There is another on the building board but you will have to keep your eye on the Phoenix columns to hear of it.
The ParkZone Radian Pro is a perfect follow-on to the successful ParkZone Radian and a long awaited addition to ParkZone's sailplane category. Designed with the experienced sailplane pilot in mind, the Radian Pro comes equipped with 5-channels out of the box, including ailerons for a more precise soaring experience and flaps for more glide path control.
Compared to the original Radian's easy, stress-free Sunday flying, the Radian pro provides a more concentrated flight experience and increased capability, allowing the pilot full roll control, spot landing and precision. The versatility and maneuverability of this plane complete with throttle, rudder, aileron, elevator and flaps allow for the flight performance that you might expect from the traditional competition sailplane without the hassles of having to build one. The Radian Pro's more rigid tail allows for increased maneuverability and precise control, and the new locking retention for the wing provides additional security for more aggressive flying.
Whether you're a current Radian flyer looking for increased performance capabilities or an experienced sailplane pilot looking for something to just fly, the Radian Pro is the answer. Available in both Bind-N-Fly and Plug-N-Play completion levels, this plane can be ready to fly in as little time as takes to charge the battery.

FORCE RC unleashes these ultra-lightweight, combat-ready helis, perfect for out-maneuvering opponents in tight quarters. The FHX and MH-35 have self-stabilizing characteristics and a mil-spec gyro stabilization system that make combat flying a breeze. Using our built-in battle module to send and receive range adjustable, infrared signals, your customers can shoot down their opponents while in flight. Game play, using a newly designed 5-channel custom transmitter, will focus on the themes in either one-on-one, or team play mode, like dog fights, target practice, and heli vs. ground with the FORCE RC Ground Target. So let the battles begin...
- Tuned controls to provide plenty of responsiveness for aggressive ABM (Air Battle Maneuvering) without making them too sensitive.
- VDAS (Visual Damage Assessment System) gives a sequence of visible damage signals before the last hit finally results in a slow spiraling descent to the ground. In no time, the heli resets itself and is off for more action.
- Optional SimpliFly™ control mode reduces pilot workload to left/right, forward/back, up/down and guns
