The Feather Duster is another great Jeff Gilbert creation that was designed for use with electric power systems.
Its ultra low wing loading allows this air craft to fly with very little effort. This unique aircraft was manufactured using all laser cut self-jigging parts and is available now as an ARF (Almost Ready to Fly) version which is is mostly prebuilt and can be assembled in just a few hours.
The Feather Duster is a lighter version of the popular Diamond Dust and will perform ultra aggressive maneuvers including 90 degree turns at full throttle. The excellent low speed flight characterestics provide for a large flying envelope.

You’ve never seen anything this small that flies so big. As the first 4-channel Ultra-Micro™ flyer to utilize Bind-N-Fly™ DSM2™ technology, the Sukhoi Su-26m will thrill experienced pilots with its amazing aerobatic capabilities.
Based on a Mike McConville design, this exciting addition to ParkZone’s family of Ultra-Micro aircraft definitely doesn’t fly like a toy. Instead, it gives you the feel of being at the flying field, and its incredibly lightweight Spektrum AR6400 receiver and ESC board provide further value and convenience. An additional servo also plugs into the board to drive the Sukhoi’s ailerons.

If you’re ready to step up from a coaxial or single-rotor fixed-pitch heli, the Blade SR is the absolute best way to make that transition a successful one. It comes out of the box programmed to provide softer climb, pitch and roll response around the center of stick movement. This, combined with the tough, two-piece main frame and lower head speed, makes the Blade SR more forgiving and easier to master than most conventional CP helis. Plus, it’s big enough to fly outdoors even if there’s a little wind.
Amazing coaxial helis like the Blade mCX and CX3 took the marketplace by storm and if you have one of these now you have no doubt mastered the basics, and can now take the next step in heli thrills with the single-rotor Blade SR. This robust, micro-class, collective pitch (CP) heli bridges the gap between coaxial helis and 3D machines like the Blade 400. The new SR comes complete with digital servos and a real heading lock Gyro (the same one as the blade 400).
As the perfect addition to Blade's growing lineup, the Blade SR is easier to fly than a regular CP heli. This has been accomplished by programming it to provide softer climb, pitch and roll response around the center of stick movement. Since it's optimized for pilots to have a successful first outdoor heli experience, and large enough to fly even if there's a little wind, the Blade SR is going to be a huge hit with the guys who have been itching to get outside and have a little more fun.The Blade SR is also more forgiving and easier to master than most conventional CP helis thanks to a tough 2-piece main frame and lower head speed. Tuned for single-rotor basics, it's the perfect choice as any aspiring pilot's second heli.
