Ares RC Ethos QX 130

MSRP: $99.99 (Catalog No. AZSH1300)

If you're ready to multiply your quadcopter fun, the Ares Ethos QX 130 is the quad for you. You'll enjoy flying the QX 130 because it's equipped with an advanced 3-axis gyro and 3-axis accelerometer control system that offers both agile flight and maximum stability out of the box. The Ethos QX 130 is a RTF (Ready-To-Fly) aircraft so the lightweight and durable airframe arrives 100% factory-assembled and everything needed to fly is in the box including AA batteries for the 2.4 GHz technology equipped full-size 4-channel transmitter, a 500 mAh 1S 3.7V Li-Po battery and an AC charger for convenient charging from almost any outlet. With nothing extra to buy to get in the air, you can be flying within minutes of opening the box. When you add Ares' exclusive software package to the mix, both first-time and experienced pilots will feel like they're "flying on rails". Another fun feature is the innovative "Automatic Flip Mode" that allows nearly anyone to perform 360-degree flips in any direction with just the push of a button. The QX 130 is also large and powerful enough to fly outdoors in winds up to 7 to 10 mph, while still small enough to fly comfortably indoors. The QX 130 even comes with an integrated LED light system controlled from the transmitter that makes it visible when flying in the dark!

BMJR Models :: Airframes

P-30 Dragonfly

MSRP: $38.85

In 2011 the rubber flyers at Palm Bay, FL were looking for a new P-30 design. This led Dave Platt to look back into his files for a model he had designed in 1986; the P-30 Dragonfly. The design is of classic stick and tissue construction reminiscent of old time rubber powered freeflight models, with excellent and predictable flight characteristics, typical of a Dave Platt design. The model has a 30-inch span and wing area of 134 square inches. A complete laser-cut kit is now available from BMJR.

Ares Advantage Exera 130CX

MSRP: $119.99 (Catalog No. AZSZ2000)

We understand how frustrating it is for new pilots to be excited about flying, then struggle with first flights. Flying can be a little intimidating at first. Our Altitude Assist Technology (AAT) makes it easy for first time fliers to master 4 channel control, and gives low-time and experienced pilots added confidence to fly in smaller indoor spaces where height is limited. It's all accomplished with state-of-the-art ultrasonic sensors that help the pilot avoid floors and ceilings. Advanced AAT manages the throttle for first-time pilots so that they can focus on learning how to use the other 3 channels without having to worry about running into the ceiling or crash landing. In Mode 2, AAT allows throttle control making it easier to fly freely around the room. The sensors continue to detect the ceiling to avoid over-accelerating the throttle which typically leads to a crash and broken parts to replace. Once your flying skills have progressed to where you're successfully flying in Mode 2, you're ready to move on to Mode 3 where you can fly without the assistance of AAT!

The result is a level unprecedented performance, the likes of which the 50-60cc class aerobatic category has never seen. So if you want to make a bold impression at your next 3D fun-fly or scale-aerobatics contest, pack the Hangar 9 Inverza 62 and be part of the next aerobatics revolution.

RTL Fasteners is celebrating its 13th year in business. It's also the 10th anniversary of the Master Builder Assortment #5000 and the Complete Metric Assortment #992; the two flagship assortments. These assortments have revolutionized how thousands of modelers purchase their hardware. In the past, most modelers and other hobbyists would go to their local retail store and purchase packs of just 4 screws (not enough screws for too much money). Now, many are opting for the large fastener assortments from RTL. Folks who have purchased these assortments often comment about how incredible it is to have all this hardware at their fingertips. The Master Builder Assortment #5000 (SAE, American sized, shown here) contains over 2,124 pieces with 4 adjustable organizers and a telescoping pick-up tool. The Complete Metric Assortment #992 contains over 1,006 pieces along with 3 adjustable organizers. RTL has also popularized neoprene (rubber) backed washers for model builders. They are great for canopies, cowls, engine mounting, etc. These washers cut down on vibration damage and keep those screws in place. Another item that RTL has introduced and made very popular are the "Prohold Balldrivers." With these Balldrivers the screw snaps on so you can place it into hard to reach spots even at the most difficult of angles. Also noteworthy and extraordinarily popular are the socket drive servo mounting screws with a built-in washer head. This screw has become known as "the screw with a million uses." Along with all of the above, RTL has an abundance of individual fasteners that come in different pack sizes (12, 24, 50 and 100 pieces), plus other tools and accessories. Over the past many years, RTL has earned the repeat business of Flying Models subscribers. As a thank you, the company is making the following offer in celebration of this 10-year milestone.

This latest book covers these new aircraft types in the same detailed and comprehensive style as Bradley's first volume. Previously unpublished company photographs, models and drawings of such radical concepts as a vertical takeoff ground-attack fighter and giant eight-engine double-decker military transport combine with other futuristic designs, some of which eventually evolved into production aircraft.
