Product Spotlight: Traxxas Slash 2WD RTR Short Course Truck w/ On-Board Audio

RC off-road racing will never be the same, now that Traxxas has come out with the all-new Slash Short-Course Racing Truck that features a groundbreaking onboard audio system. If you've had experience driving the original RTR (Ready-To-Run) Slash you know that this award-winning 2WD race truck leaves little room for improvement. Somehow, though, with the addition of a realistic on-board audio system that precisely duplicates the sounds made by an actual, full-sized, 900+ hp Pro 4X4 race truck, the whole driving experience is improved immensely.

As Real as it Gets

This 1/10th-scale version is designed to match the characteristics of a full-sized 4X4 racer, from the giant-travel, 4-wheel, independent suspension that lets you fly through the jumps and rip around turns at full bore to the realistic tires that bite just right. When you advance the throttle on your Slash R/C Truck, the on-board audio immediately comes to life with the actual sounds you'd hear when throttling up its full-sized big brother. As you can imagine, 900+ horsepower of throaty throttle waiting to be unleashed is impressive, but when you hit the switch and start ripping down the course, whether at the track or in your own backyard, you'll hear realistic engine sounds as your truck goes through the gears with unequaled and impassioned power! You've never raced like this before.

Ready to Run Right Now

This truck is plug-'n-play. It comes ready to roll right out of the box, and is equipped with the most technologically advanced radio control system of any RTR racer. There are no channels to choose and no frequencies to manage. You just turn it on and the truck and controller communicate with each other automatically. Not only is the controller extremely precise in sending signals to the race truck, even with a hidden, internal antenna, but the immediate response capability extends to the motor sounds as well. You have to hear this monster in action to truly appreciate how great Traxxas has managed to replicate the authentic sounds of a real Pro 4X4 race truck in action.

Designed to Go Anywhere, Rain or Shine

Both the racer’s electronics and the audio components are weather sealed against the elements. Off-roading has never been more fun. The extra tall ground clearance lets you go where ordinary RC 4X4s would fear to tread. The powerful 12-Turn 550 modified Titan motor is virtually maintenance free. An extra feature that enhances the awesome audio effect is the ability to rev up the motor while in neutral. It also has a special "training" mode that, with the flip of a switch, limits full throttle down to 50%. That way, everybody can get in on the action.

Check out the videos on our site to hear it for yourself.  It sounds even more impressive in person!

This amazing new DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ V3 Quad Copter Drone Package provides you with all of the cutting-edge technology you need to take amazing aerial shots, and it even includes several enhanced features from its predecessors.

DJI Phantom 2 Version 3 Upgrades:

The DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ V3 improves upon earlier versions by giving you even more control over your drone. The handheld remote control comes with several enhancements, including a gimbal control dial for easy adjustments to the camera angle, a trainer port for use with RC simulators, battery level LED light indicators, a built-in rechargeable 2000mAh LiPo battery, and a throttle-locking feature to keep the stick in place when descending.

Power
The updated design in the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ will give you increased power with the new motors, enhanced propellers, and ESCs. Together, these upgraded features will provide even more thrust and control than the earlier versions. The new system allows you to carry even bigger loads on your Phantom and can give you up to 200g/arm of extra thrust using the included 3S LiPo battery.

Compass Feature
In addition to the improved power and greater control, the new Version 3 Phantom design incorporates an anti-static compass. The compass has a protective outer shell to guard it from damage during flight or during unstable flying conditions.

The DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ V3 includes tons of other awesome features that will have the tech-geek in you feeling as giddy as a little kid on Christmas:

•    Lightweight, multi-functional integrated aircraft and camera

Cutting-Edge Drone Technology + Integrated High-End Camera

The amazing specs of this revolutionary drone technology are what make the Phantom one of the leading consumer drone products on the market, but the integration of the high performance camera makes it the ultimate device for taking spectacular aerial-view photographs and creating exciting adventure videos for any number of activities or sports. Plus, this device is the first ever to have an integrated mobile phone first-person-view (FPV) system. What this means is that as the pilot of your drone, you get to experience first-person perspective of your flyer as it breezes around the flying field, hovers above the ocean, or finds amazing views of nature at tree level.

With a high-end camera capable of taking 14 megapixel still photos, recording 1080 30p full HD videos, and viewing up to 120 degrees of perspective in one shot, you will have complete and total creative freedom. The video capabilities give you amazing crystal clear images whether you’re creating a slow-motion shot or a fast-paced adrenaline film. The Phantom Vision+ Quad Copter Drone Package also comes with a removable 4GB micro SD card.

Scale RC Trucks from Axial & RC4WD

Scale R/C trail trucks and crawlers used to be the result of painstaking hours of custom part making by highly-skilled builders.  Recently, a few manufacturers have introduced some amazing kits.  Now even novice R/C enthusiasts can get started building their own custom crawlers and trail rigs.

Two of our favorite manufacturers are RC4WD and Axial Racing.

RC4WD

RC4WD offers two scale R/C truck kits, the Trail Finder 2 and the Gelande II Defender D90.  Both trucks feature an aluminum ladder frame chassis, center mounted 4x4 transfer case, stamped steel beadlock wheels, and cast metal axles.  These are two of the most realistic kits on the market!

Check out this awesome video from RC Sparks!


 

Axial Racing

Axial is known for their rock crawlers and scale trucks.  Their scale trucks include the SCX10 Dingo kitTrail Honcho RTRJeep Wrangler Rubicon kit, and Jeep Wrangler Rubicon RTR.  While these trucks can be built into ultra-realistic scale rigs, they are great on the trail as well!




Which truck is your favorite?  Have pics of your own rig?  Post them below!

Pre-order the Blade 350 QX Quad-Rotor Heli and receive a free battery!

If you're into R/C aircraft, you've likely heard of the new Blade 350 QX Quad-Copter coming out this fall.

Quad-rotor helicopters have been gaining popularity in recent years, but many high-quality quads have had limited availability and were out of the price range of the average hobbyist.  The Blade 350 QX fixes these concerns.

For those owning an E-Flite or Blade heli already, you know how easy it is to get replacement parts, extra batteries, and compatible accessories, all at affordable prices.  The Blade 350 QX will have this same level of support.

If you haven't yet seen the Blade 350 QX, here's some of what it offers:

  • Available in Ready-to-Fly or Bind-N-Fly versions
  • GPS equipped with altitude/location hold
  • Return Home function which brings the heli right back to the takeoff point
  • SAFE technology (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) with three flight modes
  • GoPro compatible anti-vibration camera mount included
If you already have a DSM2 or DSMX radio system, the Blade 350 QX Bind-N-Fly can be yours for just $420.  The Blade 350 QX Ready-to-Fly version is available for $470.

Both versions are available for pre-orders, with an expected arrival of October 2013.  For a limited time, all pre-orders will get a free second E-Flite 3S 2200mAh LiPo battery pack!

Check out the videos below to see what this quad heli is capable of!
