Captron HeliCommand Flybarless System HC3-SXCaptron HeliCommand Flybarless System HC3-SXCaptron HeliCommand Flybarless System HC3-SX

The HC3-SX is a high-quality, compact designed Flybarless system (Rigid) and replaces the mechanical flybar on the rotor heads of all current RC helicopters. Additionally this unit features the well-known and patented Horizontal mode (self-leveling), which brings the heli back to horizontal attitude anytime you let go off the sticks. Moreover, the system is equipped with several safety features, levelling the heli back even while in hard 3D-manoeuvres like Tic-Toc or PiroFlip with a speed never seen before. These brand new features enable a pilot to learn 3D flying in the most safe way ever, speaking of a kind of "real-flight simulator" on highest level. The stabilization sensitivity (gain) as well as engaging or disengaging this function can be controlled via an auxiliary channel from the transmitter while in flight.

The HC3-SX is equipped with a flash memory and can be updated to the latest software. System is open and can be software enhanced on helicopter at flying field at any time.


Albatros 3E/S (ARF) Wingspan: 2970mm, Length: 1380mm 3-Piece Wing, Fiberglass Fuselage


Gentle, smooth, and very long flights are the standards for this beauty. The careful use of composites with competition balsa, creates a good light structure that will hold its shape for a long time. The synergy of low weight and strong structure is very unusual in a production sailplane and can only be achieved with careful attention to design and construction. The entire model is constructed using free-flight techniques. The wings as well as stabilizer are all balsa built-up with Carbon Fiber main spare. The fuselage is gel-coated fiberglass with white finish. Whole model is covered with Ultracote. All control surfaces are hinged with adhesive tape. This fully built sailplane needs only basic assembly and motor/radio installation. The 3-piece wing and horizontal stabilizer are each easily removable for transport and storage. Each part is carefully hand-crafted with meticulous attention to detail.

» Jeti Duplex DC-16 2.4GHz Radio System with Telemetry ($1000.00, Due Mid July 2011)
Jeti showed us their revolutionary DC-16 transmitter. Available sometime around mid-2011 the radio's casing sports a CNC-machined magnesium frame and alloy upper and lower parts for that overall spacey look. The sticks feature hall sensors rather than standard potentiometers for more precision and consistent performance over the whole lifetime of the transmitter. Offering 16-channels and 2.4GHz Duplex telemetry technology the DC-16 is updatable via PC interface, has a five language menu, 2GB of internal memory and weights only 1.2kg. The Duplex telemetry system shows all data in realtime in the radio's display and also offers voice warnings. Later on a DS-16 called hand held transmitter is planned for those who don't like to operate the sticks with their thumbs.

» Kontronik HeliJive and FAIJive ESCs and Kira FAI F5F/F5B motors
Kontronik extended the Jive series of electronic speed controllers. The Heli Jive has special helicopter features beside the currently known two heli modes like a special mode with variable and fixed RPM control and an autorotation mode that allows for a quick motor spool up after performing autorotation. The Heli Jive is adjustable only via Kontronik's Progdisc programming device. Also available are four new airplane Jive controllers in the form of two FIA Jive and two F3A Jive offerings. All four address the competition pilot with the LV version is made for 4S to 5S LiPo packs while the HV is usable with 6S battery packs. The FIA types come with adjustable delayed brake to safe the gears and gear boxes and also feature special protection systems to go with the used low-inductive competition motors. The F3A versions address the aerobatic pilot, feature real proportional brakes and constant RPM mode for even more precise aerobatic flying.

» Hacker Helicopter Motors
Hacker also cares for the helicopter pilot with their new Turnado A50-12L 470kv outrunner brushless motor. Made for the use with 10S to 12S LiPo packs a new stator winding allows for better cooling, higher efficiency and increased torque. The Turnado should be available very soon to fit your choice of 700-class helicopters.

» Hacker C50 Sensored F3A Competition Power System
Hacker showed the new Senstrol 120 brushless airplane motor and controller combo. Coming with what they call Constant Power Management the controller simply holds the RPM adjusted by the transmitter stick irregardless the flight situation the plane. For example the plane is flight into a loop then the controller holds the RPM by putting more power on the motor and also holds the RPM when going downwards again by given less power on the motor. F3A pilots who need this constant speed flight situation will welcome this. Also, when turning the motor off the prop is positionable in any position you want and it stays there until you start the motor again. Hacker achieved this by having a 4096 step encoding system for the motor and fully automatic real-time variable frequency and phase sequencing calculation. The system is fully RPM controlled giving proportional RPM output with stick movement. The system is made around Hacker's C50 line of brushless motors with KV rating variants available when the Senstrol system is finally available.
