The boys of FTI have made a video of the new Fluid that will appeal even to those who are not fond of model aircraft. This model is designed by Andrea Giavarini and is produced in collaboration with FlightTech Italy and our good friends at Dualsky.
This is the point of view of Andrea Giavarini on this new project: “Aggressive yet elegant and precise. This is the goal that I set for myself. What you can pull out from a model without a wing profile? …I know who has tried these models indoor… geometries, the levers, the quality of the material and the mounting techniques can make the difference between a model and the other one”.

Team Orion has just announced “Nitrostar” which is basically “X Factor” for RC!
The competition aims to find the next big star of 1/8th off road who will then join Team Orion and possibly claim their 15th World Championship!
The Competion is open to all and you can enter here
There are a few unanswered questions – Firstly why is Adrien doing an impression of Emperor Palpatine in the publicity picture?
Second – In true X factor style, will a good “Backstory” help you become the winner – you know unwell Granny, hard life on the streets of London, or the canals of Venice? And will there be a phone vote??
Press continue for a look at all the Orion World Champions – and remember No.13 Could be you!!
Now this is either a story that demonstrates the power of Facebook marketing and Atsushi Hara love-ins, or illustrates awful sales forecasting!!
JQ tell us they have sold out of the new White edition, which is great if they made 10,000, less good if they made 17! So with that vital piece of information missing – press continue for the full release!!
In a rare occurance of one of RC TV’s predictions actually being correct, we spotted a post on Facebook this evening from top UK on-road racer, Olly Jefferies.
Just a few hours earlier today, we wrote that we expected a number of the Britain’s top Touring Car stars to be switching teams, and Olly Jefferies is the first of them to announce that 2014 will mean a change for him. Olly wrote;
“Car ready for last race of 2013 but also my last race as a Team Associated driver. Enjoyed my time at Team Associated and thankful for help and support over the years. I will try and make the final race a good one!”
As one of Team Associated/CML’s longest serving racers, Olly obviously decided this was time to seek a fresh challenge for the year ahead. Stay tuned to RC Racing TV for news on which colours Olly will be racing under in 2014, as soon as we possibly can!
Well after a good few years as Europe’s Mr Unstoppable in 1/10th buggy, todays news doesn’t seem like a huge shock as we sensed all may not be well this with the Brit ace and his team this summer… Today Lee released the following statement:
“So the end has come. Tamiya TRF have chosen to reduce operations in the off road market for the foreseeable future, therefore they are not continuing my contract. I would like to thank TRF for their support over a successful past 4 years, bringing such results as:
2nd in the Worlds Championship
4 x European champion
4 x National champion
4 x IFMAR world finals
19 individual national wins
EOS round winner
And many more!
With this decision, the future now lies somewhere new in 1/10th off road! A challenge I am looking forward to taking, but nothing is yet decided. For sure it’s going to feel strange for a little while.

LRP have unleashed their latest big chopper, the MonsterHornet Pro 2.4GHz. They say it is an easy to fly, robustly constructed, outdoor capable 3-channel helicopter that impresses with its big size. The mainframe and tail rotor are made of ultra lightweight and strong aluminium. Any model helicopter’s most sensitive part is the rotor head, so LRP have made it out of extremely hard synthetic material and additionally reinforced by aluminium.
In the past decade, PROTOform’s original Mazda6 race body and its successor, Mazdaspeed6, have stood out as the dominant force in electric touring car, scoring wins at a combined three IFMAR ISTC World Championships and countless other international events. When Mazda’s SKYACTIV-D GX Class Race Car dominated the 2014 Grand-Am series, we knew it was the perfect heir to the throne in 1/10 Electric Touring Car.
