Product Showcase 2013

by FliteTest | December 17, 2013 | (11) Posted in Just Fun



Welcome to the Flite Test Product Showcase 2013!

This years theme is: Flying In Your Living Room!

First up we have Real Flight 7

Can't decide what you want to fly? How about EVERYTHING! 

Simulators are a great way to introduce friends and family to the hobby without the worry of crashing your planes. In fact, it's encouraged. 

Next, we have the Air Hogs Helix X4.

These "in air bumper cars" are great for young ones. Covered blades protect whatever this ends up running into and the body itself can take a good beating. 

If you want more details, we did a full episode on the Air Hogs Helix X4 which you can watch here

Next up, we have the LaTrax Alias

Durable and fast, this really is a great quality quad. Also, it looks like a lizard. 

The Alias comes with one battery and can also be flown outdoors!

 The lone heli in our showcase is the Heli-Max Axe 100 CX.

This is great for beginners. You won't be able to over control the Axe 100 CX taking down the learning curve. 

Next, we have the Estes Proto X.

Teeny and tiny but small and mighty. This comes with everything you need to fly right out of the box and can charge off of USB. 

Last but not least, our personal favorite, the Blade Nano QX.

The Nano QX controls extremely well for the size. Responsive, fast, and most importantly, crazy fun! 

Keep your eyes peeled for a future episode featuring the Nano QX!


Thanks again for being the coolest community in the hobby!

Nice episode! I would add the grandfather "walkera ladybird" to the line since it still rocks my house... and it is very durable..

No mention of the Hubsan 107D 5.8 ghz fpv kit? You really should get in touch with them and do a episode. Though as their chinese you might have some issues getting in touch with them A rtf micro fpv quad for ~200$.
Its the same company that is manufacturing the Traxxas QR-1 (a rebranded 107 with different paintscheme and a Walkera GA006 charger).
