As you can see, there has been a lot of new arrivals the last few weeks and this blog post will discuss the products that Mike covered, beginning with the JR XG14E.
This is a classic European-style transmitter. If you are a fan of tray radios, this new release from JR will have great appeal. In terms of functionality, it is very similar to the original high-tech JR XG14 transmitter. As Mike mentioned, there are also a wide range of option parts that you can use with the XG14e, such as palm rests, transmitter tray arms and a specially-designed transmitter case. If you prefer tray-type radios, the XG14e is an excellent choice; offering European styling with the high quality that JR is renowned for.
JR DS8411HV Servo
Another great release from JR is their DS8411HV servo. As Mike described, this is a high voltage version of one of the most popular JR servos we have had at Modelflight. It is a great little package, coming with dual ball bearings, metal gears and an incredible 17 kilos of torque! If you are the owner of a giant-scale model plane, the DS8411HV is a great investment that will deliver the performance you need.
Dualsky VRU Mini
This compact voltage regulator weighs a mere 20g and can be used at 5, 6, 6.4 or 7.4 volts, making it very versatile. This switch-mode option ensures that heat build-up is minimised. It comes in a full metal case and has a 4.5-amp output. It has very broad applications and will make for a good addition to your model.
Dualsky FC130 Flight Control System
Another great offering from Dualsky is this 3-axis flight control system. Weighing only 8g, this little unit serves as a stabiliser for your model, allowing you to maintain your direction in the air, particuarly during turbulence or other air current. This is a great choice for beginner pilots, but if you find that your aircraft in general can be unstable at times, this would be an excellent solution.
E-Flite Power 360
The final product Mike looked at was the E-Flite Power 360. This is one of the largest motors in E-Flite's Power series; the electric equivalent of a 50cc petrol engine. This is a great brushless motor for 2.2 to 2.4m model planes. It can run on a 12S LiPo system (usually two 6S LiPo batteries). As Mike suggested, the Dualsky 6250HED batteries would be a great choice for this motor. If you want electric power for your giant-scale model, the E-Flite Power 360 is definitely the way to go.
We hope this blog post (and Mike's video) gave you a good idea of the new products that are available at Modelflight. We will be sure to cover additional new releases as they come online, so stay tuned for more!
