600 X Pro Series Kit

The newest and largest blade helicopter is now in the popular 600 class. The new 600x shares a lot of it components and frame with the 550x but utilizes, larger blades, boom and motor. The supplied Eflite 700 motor, it’s designed to run on 2 6s 3200mah, unusual for a 600 class heli. The logic is to higher the voltage, lower the amperage to achieve the same and more power, whilst keeping components running cooler and more efficiently!

As you can see from below video, it certainly is a strong performer!

Apprentice S 15e RTF


The E-flite® Apprentice® S 15e RTF airplane is the most intelligent RC airplane ever offered by Horizon Hobby. At its heart is groundbreaking SAFE™ (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology that makes RC flight incredibly easy, even for the least experienced user. Its combination of spatial awareness provides flight envelope protection which adds a degree of security never before available, while its smooth flight capability battles windy conditions so that all you feel is control that’s crisp and responsive. Multiple levels of flight envelope protection are provided that can be reduced or removed as your skills progress, yet the “panic” feature is always there to instantly return the model to level flight if you ever lose orientation. Requiring just minutes to assemble, you’ll appreciate how its quiet brushless power system delivers outstanding performance with long, enjoyable flights. Plus it’s built to last from lightweight Z-Foam™ material that’s tough enough to handle everyday flying punishment without getting bent out of shape. After you’ve mastered the basics of flight, the Apprentice S is capable of performing a complement of aerobatic maneuvers such as loops, rolls, and even inverted flight. You can also turn the Apprentice S into a great floatplane by simply adding the specially designed E-flite Apprentice S Floats (EFLA550)—sold separately.
