um, you wouldn't be the first, and you wouldn't likely be alone.

A great noon time demo is often followed by a few people who go buy things in the shop, and proceed to immediately destroy them, as well as tear up some turf...

Tomorrow's crash sale.


3 Great Deals - 1 Day Only!


Predator UAV with Digital Camera

52-1/4" wingspan, 30-3/4" long, 225 sq. in. wing area, 22 oz. flying weight. Everything you need is in the box. Requires some simple assembly before flight. Includes a 72 mHz 4-channel transmitter, 6-channel receiver, speed 400 brushed motor, motor controller, flight battery and charger. Flight battery is an 8-cell 9.6V 1000 mAh rechargeable NiMH pack and a 110V plug-in wall charger. For quick charging your battery at the field order (ETC2030). Digital camera takes up to 26 full color photos. The camera plugs into the receiver. Camera includes a CD with software and cables needed to download the photos to a computer. To take photo, rudder stick must be moved all the way to the side. Operator's manual for the camera included. The airplane can take off from smooth ground or be hand launched. Airplane is easy to fly and simple to land.

Now $98 - Save $50
Discontinued Item - Was $148


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


SU-27 Flanker RTF

31-1/4" wingspan, 42-3/4" long, 242 sq. in. wing area, 23 oz. flying weight. All molded foam construction pre-built and decorated. Final assembly can be completed in under an hour with the included epoxy glue. Airplane includes 5 pre-wired servos, landing gear with steerable nose wheel, 2 ducted fans with brushed 400 class motors, and a 30 amp speed control. All pre-installed, there is no soldering required. A 4-channel full range 72mHz radio system is included, only 8-AA batteries need to be installed (sold separately). The 6 channel micro receiver is pre-installed and ready for use. Power is supplied by the included 3-cell 1800 mAh LiPoly battery. Charge your flight batteries at home or at the field with the included Lithium Polymer Balance battery charger (requires 12 Volt battery or 12 Volt power supply). The jet's ground handling is excellent, steer the nose into the breeze and advance the throttle, the jet will be airborne from a smooth flying surface in 50-75 feet. The jet has moderate speed and will perform loops, rolls, inverted flight, but then will slow beautifully to float in for a soft landing or a touch and go. Flight times are over 10 minutes. This jet is a great introduction to ducted fan flight and is easy enough to fly even for a less experienced pilot.

Now $169 - Save $60
Discontinued Item - Was $229


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Mustang P-51D RTF



37-3/4" wingspan, 30-3/4" long, 245 sq. in. wing area, 20 oz. flying weight. Fuselage and wing are molded high-density bead foam. Stabilizer and rudder are heat-molded foam with a tough, smooth surface, all pre-hinged and painted. The airplane comes completely pre-painted and decorated, the servos and electronics are pre-installed, and the brushless OUTRUNNER motor and speed control are installed and ready for use. The scale 4-bladed propeller (there are 2 included) and special 4-blade spinner really add to the authentic appearance, as does the scale landing gear and wheels that come assembled and ready to be screwed in place. The wing has individual aileron servos pre-installed and ready to plug into the radio receiver. The assembly is very quick and easy; in the time it takes to charge the included 3-cell 1300 mAh Lithium battery with the included 12 Volt balance charger (requires 12 Volt battery or power supply), the airplane can be ready for flight. The included 72 MHz 4-channel radio requires 8-AA batteries (sold separately). Almost all novice pilots want to fly a Mustang and generally this is the worst possible choice - until now. The gentle flying character and predictability of this airplane is suitable for even fairly low time pilots. The big 4-bladed prop provides lots of thrust with only moderate speed, the wide stance of the landing gear gives you good ground handling, and the high lift wing provides great handling even at low speed. Flight times are about 10-15 minutes.



Now $169 - Save $30
Was $199
