First introduced in 1938, the Stinson SR-10 is as much a work of art as a work of engineering. The combination of its graceful lines and unique wing shape give you the sense it’s reaching for the sky even when it’s parked on the ramp.
ParkZone has expertly modeled this aviation classic to give you a civilian scale experience unlike anything else. It comes out of the box loaded with scale details like an authentic paint scheme and markings, molded ribbing in the wings, a simulated radial engine, accurately modeled landing gear and much more.
A robust 480 brushless motor power system provides plenty of power for everything from half-throttle cruising to full-throttle sport aerobatics. You also have the option of adding flaps. And it will do it all with the same smooth sport flying manners you’ve come to expect from a Park.

From Pearl Harbor through 1942 the F4F Wildcat was the only U.S. fighter in the Pacific theater capable of thwarting the advances of Japan’s naval air forces. And though it was slower and less maneuverable than the vaunted Zero, its heavier armor, self-sealing fuel tanks and rugged airframe could often help a skilled pilot overcome this performance gap and live to fight another day.
ParkZone brings the legendary Wildcat to life with this great flying Plug-N-Play park flyer modeled after a plane flown by Lieutenant Commander Edward “Butch” O’Hare – the U.S. Navy’s first flying ace.
Scale touches include a realistic paint scheme, simulated engine cylinders and cowl flaps, molded wheels tucked into the fuselage and more. Its flight performance is equally impressive thanks to the full 4-channel control and ample power provided by its 480 brushless motor.

After a long delay the Hitec Optima 6 receivers are back in stock. Click here to get yours today
Posted By: Cliff Whitney @ 11:09:00 AM
The Optima receivers are part of a 2.4GHz system that utilizes the latest Adaptive Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum Technology (AFHSS) and the Hitec exclusive Smart Scan system to ensure a rock-solid, interference-free connection between the transmitter and the receiver.
The Spectra 2.4 module and Optima line of receivers include built-in telemetry:
Low Battery Warning—Notifies the pilot when the on-board receiver battery voltage is too low for continued operation and needs to be recharged. Very useful for Gas, Glow, and Glider pilots.
Range-Out Warning—Notifies the pilot when the airplane is too far away and signal degradation is beginning to occur. A must for larger airplanes and gliders.
Boosted Omni-Directional Antenna—eliminates the need for satellite receiversSupplementary Power Connection (SPC)—permits powering the receiver with up to a 6S LiPo batterySmartScan Mode SelectableLength: 1.82" (46.15mm)Width: 0.84" (21.42mm)Height: 0.44" (11.1mm)Weight: 0.54 oz. (15.31g)
