Hello Everyone, My name is Greg Ledford and I am the Operations manager here at Atlantahobby.com. Cliff left with his family and went to Tahoe for Christmas so it is just me and a few other associates running the show here.

He has always told me that I am in charge and to run the shop like I owned it (or was the debt holder as he says) so I have taken the global Electron member discount way up for a after Christmas sale.
Now I don't know how long it will be before he checks this site and changes it back but if you are an Electron member now is a great time to make use of some of that Christmas money and if you are not an Electron member now is a great time to join.
As you members know the discounts are automatic and don't tell Cliff but if the sales are good.... well it is always easier to get forgiveness than permission ;-)

Over a year in development, researching suppliers and waiting on battery technology to develop we are happy to release High Sierra Li-Polymer batteries.
High Sierra has has a strong technology partner who has the manufacturing ability to supply our needs but at the same time to deliver the quality that we demand. Quality is our first priority and we have worked hard to build the highest quality packs.
Each Cell is checked during production and matched with partner cells to assure the highest performance of each pack. Full life-cycle-test are repeatedly accomplished and as a result the high voltage under load will give you a noticeable increase of power.
Try our packs, the pricing is very competitive with those other low priced packs you see out on the market but our packs are not seconds. You will not see us changing names every time we get a new load of packs in stock and you do not have to ship your pack back to China if you have any trouble.
A typical 3 S 2100 25C pack will run $29.99 for Electron members and our bigger 5 and 6 s packs also have great pricing!

For most private pilots, nothing says “I’ve arrived!” quite like taking the left seat of a Beechcraft Bonanza. Considered by many to be the finest single-engine airplane in general aviation, the Bonanza is renowned for its classic lines and sporty-yet-stable flight characteristics.
E-flite has expertly captured the scale lines and satisfying flying manners of the Bonanza with this 15-size ARF. It comes out of the box with a great-looking UltraCote® trim scheme and enough scale detail to satisfy any sport modeler.
For those who want to push the scale looks and performance even further, E-flite offers several optional accessory kits (sold separately) that allow you to add cockpit details, electric retracts and even a V-tail.

F-86 Skyblazers EDF Jet ARF
Tough EPO jet - Simple, Fun and Inexpensive
Before the Thunderbirds, there were the Skyblazers, formed in 1949 from members of the 22nd Fighter Squadron of the 36th Fighter Wing in Europe. They began flying the F-80 Shooting Star, but moved on to the F-84 Thunderjet and finally, and most famously, to the F-86 Sabre. The team performed over 250 demonstrations in Europe and became the seed of what was to become the Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team.
Our F-86 has a 27-1/2" wingspan and is 27-1/2" long with a 17 oz. flying weight. This receiver-ready EPO jet is pre-painted and ready to assemble in about an hour. Designed for simple everyday flying, the model is hand launched and lands on the reinforced drop tanks.
Included is a 64mm ducted fan with a 4300Kv Outrunner brushless motor and 30 amp speed controller with BEC. A 1600 mAh 3-cell Lipo battery supplies the power and is pre-connected with genuine Deans Ultra connectors. Three 9-gram servos are pre-installed and ready to plug into your radio equipment; a minimum of 3 channels is required.

This exclusive Atlantahobby.com combo includes the ducted fan and brushless motor for a huge savings of $109.99! Act fast before they're all gone. Designed as a trainer and light combat aircraft for use by the British Royal Air Force, the British Aerospace (BAe) Hawk was mainly used to teach air combat, air-to-air firing, air-to-ground firing, low-altitude flying techniques and operation procedures. There are currently over 900 Hawks in operation and nearly 2 million flying hours have been logged on the Hawk.

E-flite’s BAe Hawk 15 DF ARF is a sport scale version of the British trainer. Constructed of fiberglass and balsa, the fuselage is prefinished with scale details. The Hawk boasts the rare and very visible Central Flying School airshow trim scheme from 1987 in red, white and blue.
This exciting model was designed around E-flite’s Delta V 15 (69mm) fan unit and matched 15 DF brushless motor. Pilots can use a 3-cell battery pack or utilize a 4-cell battery pack for increased vertical performance. The built-in fan mounts make installing the fan easy—just drop in the fan unit and tighten four screws. The removable front hatch also allows easy access to the radio equipment and battery. The entire trim scheme is prepainted, pre-trimmed, the wings are covered in UltraCote and all the decals have already been applied. Created for the advanced sport scale pilot, the BAe Hawk 15 DF ARF easily lives up to its reputation of being a stable flying jet.
