Known for its adventurous and heavy-hitting nature, the Ford Raptor is a fixture at off-road races around the world, including the famous Dakar Rally (the above picture shows Sue Mead and Darren Skilton competing in this very rally). As the image shows, the Raptor is built for extreme off-road competition. It is with that same spirit that Vaterra have created their very own RC Ford Raptor, pictured below:
Ever since Vaterra was launched in early-2013, they have always amazed us with their range of on- and off-road RC cars and trucks. It is only fitting that one year after they entered the stage that they continue to build on their solid foundation with the introduction

We are pleased to report that ParkZone have just announced a brand new RC Plane - the ArtiZan. This new model is an excellent choice if you are looking for your second remote control plane. Even if you taught yourself how to fly with a HobbyZone model, you will find that the transition to the ParkZone ArtiZan will be a smooth one.
The key to the ArtiZan's success is the included AS3X technology, which gives you great stability in the air by countering environmental factors such as wind and turbulence. ParkZone have also given this RC plane a chambered construction, with a large wing area and low weight. This

The original Blade 300 X was a popular RC helicopter for pilots looking to perform fantastic aerobatics in the air. Today, we are pleased to announce that the 300 X is being upgraded to a whole new level. The brand new 300 CFX comes with a carbon-fibre frame and a range of aluminium hop-up parts already installed.
One of the great things about the Blade 300 CFX is its optimised servo geometry. This geometry is similar to what you would find in Blade's flagship 700 X. It gives the 300 CFX an extremely precise feel when flying and prevents mechancial loss through the flybarless system. This servo geometry also ensures that the included Spektrum AR7200BX flybarless system can work much less

We are thrilled to announce this exciting release from Blade helicopters. The new Blade 200 SR RC helicopter is the ideal choice for beginner pilots. Equipped with SAFE Technology, learning to fly remote control helicopters just became much easier. This technology has already been seen in Blade's RC quadcopter range, including the Nano QX, 180 QX and 350 QX, but this is the first time SAFE has been included in an RC helicopter.

The ECX Circuit has always been a popular choice for drivers looking for their first RC truck and today we are thrilled to announce that a new 4WD version of this car is coming soon to Modelflight. Ready-to-run with a brushed Dynamite power system, the ECX Circuit 2014 offers all the fun of its predecessor with the ability to tackle more extreme terrains.
The shaft-driven 4WD platform in the Circuit gives the truck more ability than the average 2WD vehicle. Combined with its strong 15T brushed motor and Speedpack 8.4V 7-cell NiMH battery, this stadium truck packs plenty of punch. ECX have also equipped the Circuit
