Every month we receive a CD-ROM disk from Horizon Hobby UK (formerly Helger of course) The disk is quite literally packed with new aircraft and product lines demonstrating that (in this writers opinion) Horizon are the most rapidly growing distributor in the UK at the moment. The company is clearly aiming to have a one-stop solution for anyone who walks into a model shop and their new electric flight releases are a case in point.
A new range of Li-Pos have joined a growing range of motors and other accessories all vying for your electric flight hobby pound. We’ve not received any items to test as yet so I can only relate information from the press release. The batteries appear to be JST-XH plugged and availabe in a range of the most popular sizes/capacities, they’re all rated at 20C. Pricing is about average across the range – a 3S 2100mAh pack retailing at £49.99.
These new brushless motors are designed for aerobatic and 3D models weighing 790-990g when used with a gearbox, they’re both priced at £46.99.
