In our final blog post on the new releases announced at the 2015 Nuremberg Toy Fair, we will be picking up right where we left off in our previous post and talking about two updated Spektrum radios.
New Spektrum DX7
Here is an RC radio that certainly punches above its weight! The new Spektrum DX7 may only come with seven channels, but it is now packed with features that you would normally see in a nine or eighteen channel transmitter. For example, this radio has a built-in telemetry feature that, when used in conjunction

INDOOR STARTED AGAIN IN JANUARY 2015.
Over the last couple of months, I have been moaning and groaning regarding the lack of fliers, lack of income which meant Michael and Model Flight had to make up the short fall for the monthly rent. As the gorgeous lady who presents information for Ford Finance says, "This is true." Now, I hope, we have entered a new world with larger numbers of happy fliers.

Challenging conditions and it performed brilliantly. And the video recorded on the CGO2-GB in these choppy conditions was outstanding. That gimbal works very well."
"The Yuneec Q500 Typhoon is an incredibly stable platform with flight control features comparable to commercial multirotors worth thousands. The 3-axis gimbal and advanced flight controller produce stable and high quality imagery even in strong winds. Its large battery capacity gives more than
