Cavallino Pylon Racer (ARF) $145.00
The Cavallino is a great introduction to the world of pylon racers. While it is not quite as intimidating as some of the fully hollow molded racers, it is stable and easy for the intermediate pilot to handle. Using the recommended brushless setup, this model launches with just a toss and immediately climbs up and away. Typical to Topmodel, this ARF is of superb quality.

Typical to TopModel, this ARF is of superb quality. The fuselage is fiberglass, finished in white gel coat.
Stiletto Pylon Racer (ARF)
Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien 50e (ARF)
The Ki-61 was notable for many reasons: initially identified as of either German or Italian origin, these aircraft were capable of matching Allied aircraft such as the P-40 in speed, and as evaluation had already showed, were superior in almost every respect.
The Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien was a Japanese World War II fighter aircraft used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force. The Allied code name assigned by the United States War Department was "Tony". The Japanese Army designation was "Army Type 3 Fighter". It was the only mass-produced Japanese fighter of the war to use a liquid-cooled inline "V" engine. The new Ki-61 Hien fighters entered service with a special training unit, the 23rd Chutai, and entered combat for first time in spring 1943 during the New Guinea campaign.
Supermarine Spitfire Mk II 50 (ARF)
The distinctive silhouette imparted by the wing platform helped the Spitfire to achieve legendary status during the Battle of Britain. There was, and still is, a public perception that it was the RAF fighter of the Battle, in spite of the fact that the more numerous Hurricane shouldered a great deal of the burden against the potent Luftwaffe.
The Supermarine Spitfire was a British single-seat fighter aircraft, used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries during the Second World War, and into the 1950s. It was produced in greater numbers than any other Allied design. The Spitfire was the only Allied fighter in production at the outbreak of the Second World War that was still in production at the end of the war.
Messerschmitt Bf109E 50 (ARF)
A technological marvel when it first flew in 1935, the Bf109 served on all fronts through the entire war, and was produced in great quantity even as it was becoming increasingly obsolescent relative to Allied fighters.
The Messerschmitt Bf109 was a German World War II fighter aircraft designed by Willy Messerschmitt in the early 1930s. It was one of the first true modern fighters of the era, including such features as an all-metal monocoque construction, a closed canopy, and retractable landing gear. The Bf-109 was produced in greater quantities than any other fighter aircraft in history, with a wartime production (September 1939 to May 1945) of 30,573 units.
Focke Wulf Fw 190 50 (ARF)
Compared to the Bf 109, the Fw 190 was a "Workhorse", employed in and proved suitable for a wide variety of roles, including air superiority fighter, ground attack, fighter-bomber, long-range bomber escort, and night fighter.
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Würger ("Shrike"), also called Butcher-bird, was a single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft of Germany's Luftwaffe. Used extensively during the WWII, over 20,000 were manufactured, including around 6,000 fighter-bomber models. The Fw 190 was well-liked by its pilots, and was quickly proven to be superior to the RAF's main front line fighter, the Spitfire Mk.V, on its combat debut in 1941. Regarded as a genius of his time, the German engineer Kurt Tank designed the Fw 190 that was to become one of the Germany's most formidable fighter planes.
Focke Wulf Ta152H 90 (ARF)
The first Ta152H entered service with the Luftwaffe in January 1945. Total production, including prototypes and pre-production aircraft is estimated at about 220. But only some 43 production aircraft were delivered until the end of the war.
The Focke Wulf Ta152 was a World War II German high-altitude fighter-interceptor. It was a natural development of the Focke Wulf Fw 190 aircraft, but the prefix was changed from "Fw" to "Ta" to recognize the contributions of Kurt Tank who headed the design team. To reach higher altitudes, a pressurized cockpit was added to the H models. The canopy was sealed via a circular tube filled with foam rubber which was inflated by a compressed air bottle, while the engine compartment was also sealed from the cockpit with a foam rubber ring.
Ryan STA 50e (ARF)
The Ryan PT-20 was developed after hostilities broke out in WWII as the U.S. Army's primary flight trainer. After the war, it was remade into the STA single seat sports plane, which is the original version of this model. Despite the fact it is a relatively new design, the Ryan STA manages to capture all the spirit of Aviation's Golden Age. The adoption of low-wing design and substantial wing area combined with Kyosho's renowned design skills produced a calm and stable flight performer.

|Edge Carbon Fiber Main Blades and Tail Blades|
EDGE high performance CF rotor blades are new premium blades that have been specifically designed for today's model helicopters. EDGE rotor blades have been optimized for use with today's light weight, high powered models with increased cyclic pitch. While these blades are ideal for aggressive Flybarless 3D performance, they can also be used for more precision FAI & FC3 flying on traditional flybar machines.
Flybarless Edge blades may be flown on a traditional flybar helicopters for a smoother and less aggressive FAI/FC3 style cyclic response.
