This is the 3D storm - an electric brushless machine, just add transmitter and receiver to fly.
The i.c. powered Pantera is the first Twister machine for glow power.

J.Perkins have just launched two new helicopters under the popular Twister brand - the Twister 3D Storm 440 brushless and the Twister Pantera 50.

Twister 3D Storm

This machine has been designed to take pilots up a level in 400-class expert 3D flying and so is clearly not for beginners. Intermediate and expert flyers wouldn't want a bundled transmitter which is why the model is factory-built ready to fly apart from a transmitter and receiver. Included therefore are a brushless 440 motor, a 25 amp ESC, gold connectors and a 20C 1800mAh Li-Po battery. A three-cell balance charger, mains power adapter and blade caddy are also included. The RRP is 149.95.

Twister Pantera 50

This ARTF machine is the first i.c. Twister machine to appear - quite a departure from the norm! Described to be a pussycat to hover yet no stranger to 3D flight, the Pantera boasts a single axle rubber damped rotor head and a ballraced control system with ballraced servo output shaft stabilisers that prevent servo-rocking. A pinion belt-drive, header tank and motor muffler are amogst the other features. Main rotor diameter is 24.5cm and the machine just needs your R/C gear and i.c. motor to start flying. The RRP is 199.99.

We hope to bring more news of these machines in RCM&E but in the meantime www.jperkinsdistribution.co.uk has more information or click here to go straight there.
