Taigen Hand Painted Battle Tanks!

We have received new batch of Taigen battle RC Tanks. The finish is very realistic, you can say these models have seen a battle or two plus the attention to detail is unbelievable. I must say I am really impressed with these tanks and the improvements which have been made on the previous (first model), much better more realistic paint job (matt finish – the previous had a semi-sheen to it, and better weathered look), maneuverability & speed is slower but more realistic due to the additional weight of the full metal versions–( approx. 7kg) compared to all other Taigen tanks.
We have currently  7 radio controlled tanks from Taigen in stock raging from £84.99 to the full metal pro model worth £179.99!

Pick of The Planes – Jets and Gliders

In the first part I have been talking about Trainer RC Planes, Large scale remote control Planes and Warbirds. Today I have prepared my choice in the glider field and a great jet as well.

Glider RC Palnes:

Sonic 185 4CH 2.4G Brushless RC Glider

Nitrotek Price £ 149.99
The Sonic 185 is an excellent choice of  RC plane for experience pilots, but will suit beginners too. The Sonic has a 1.85 metre wingspan and a powerful brushless motor with LiPo batteries. With this model you can turn off the motor, then soar down slopes and climb with the thermals to enjoy the experience of truly silent flight.
Made from the same crash resistant foam material as other radio controlled planes in the Dynam range, the Sonic is factory finished, complete with a 4 channel receiver which allows full control of the rudder, elevator, ailerons and throttle. For easier transportation, the Sonic has a split wing design and a carbon fibre wing joiner.
Nitrotek price £149.99
This F-5E is one of the highest spec and quickest jets on the market. It is a massive 1.3m in length and is fitted with a 70mm EDF engine; the extra power and speed is produced by the 40A brushless setup. As well as extra power and speed this jet also features an automatic landing gear system and turning front wheel. These  highly maneuverable radio controlled planes can easily perform inverted flight, loops and rolls etc. The model comes pre-painted – Grey.
The high power allows full aerobatic characteristics, the inside loops, outside loops, axial rolls, inverted flight, knife edge, stall turns, hammerheads, and spins are all possible.

Nitrotek Helicopters – Superb Quality for the Best Price!

Nitrotek  is stocking the best radio controlled helicopters from around the world including Esky and Copter-X. Our helicopters are made of  highest quality materials like aluminium alloys, carbon fibre and best quality plastic. We have something to offer to all pilots.
Our rc helicopters are divided into four categories:
  1. 1. Micro RC Helicopters – These little gems are lots of fun and easy to fly. They are crash resistant and can be flown with only a few minutes practice. Our micro radio controllled helicopters are 4 channel, meaning you have full 3D control and unlike the 2-3 channel toy shop ones, you can also bank left and right. As an example I have selected this Z008 Mini 4ch RC Helicopter RTF with Gyro and USB. This palm size 4 channel RC helicopter is amazing! It is able to move in all directions: up-down, forward-backward, left-right, bank right and left, spin on its axes just like the real thing!
Our Price £34.99
  1. 2. Co-axial RC Helicopters – Featuring two sets of main blades which rotate in different directions. These radio controlled helicopters will make ideal starting model for a beginner in this fantastic hobby before moving to single blade model. As a good example I have picked the Esky Co-Comanche 4CH RC Helicopters – 2.4Ghz Version.You can have all the fun and thrills of flying a proper rc helicopter but without the hours of practice. There are many twin blade RC helicopters on the market now but the Comanche is in a league of its own with much better performance and agility.


Our Price £89.99


  1. 3. Fixed Pitch RC Helicopters – The next step in the RC helicopter field is flying a single blade remote control helicopter. These are more difficult to fly so the training set is recommended. Fixed pitch means the blades are at a locked angle so they are simpler in construction and therefore cheaper and easier to repair if you crash. We have extensive choice to suit all demands, as an example I have selected our best selling model Esky Honey Bee V2 4ch Rc Helicopter – 2.4Ghz Version. The Honey Bee V2 is the latest version of this worldwide famous beginners RC helicopter. If you want to learn how to fly a proper single blade helicopter then this is the best choice. The Esky Honey Bee Series of radio controlled helicopters feature good performance for superior strength, stability, controllable flight and durability.
Our Price £89.99


  1. 4. Collective Pitch RC He licopters – It is possible to learn how to fly a radio controlled helicopter on a collective pitch model although not recommended, this type of models is the last logical step on your learning curve. Collective pitch means that when you increase the throttle the blades automatically also angle upwards to give massive amounts of lift. It’s this extra lift that allows these rc helicopters to perform stunts such as flying upside down and doing loops etc. The best model we have on offer is this CopterX 450 Pro Torque Tube RTF 2.4G Rc Helicopter. You will never need to spend money upgrading the 450 Pro as all upgrades come as standard with full CNC aluminum or carbon throughout. A lot of parts on the rotor head are over sized or hardened. 4mm feathering shaft, hardened aluminum alloy washout, oversize main shaft lock collar, one piece swashplate, etc. All these allow high loading for extreme 3D maneuvers.


Our price £279.98

RC Boat Choice from Nitrotek

This week I would like to share with you my opinions on some of our great radio controlled boats. We have few RC boats in stock as well as some RC Hovercrafts.

My first choice is a remote control boat from Dynam:

Targa 38 EP Electric Radio Controlled Boat RTR 2.4GHz

Retail price: £109.99

Our top of the range rc boats is the Dynam Rc Targa. This remote control boat features a proper racing engine, seperate ESC and high quality 2.4GHz radio gear like the one that can be found on a radio controlled car. These boats also use a 7.2V Tamiya type race battery pack, giving more power and very high speeds. You’ll be in the water and racing at full speed in no time at all because the Targa 38 RC boats come out of the box Ready For Fun!

My second choice from our  radio controlled boats is:

1:16 Scale Dolphin Rc Boats with Water Cooled Motor

Our Price £59.98

This superb looking rc boat is driven by a powerful 540 type racing motor which for its size produces an incredible amount of power. It comes with professionally designed large torsion propeller which provide an immense amount of thrust. The look of this remote control boat is great, too.

My third choice out of RC boats is this fun loaded Radio Controlled Hovercraft

Our Price £39.98

The ultimate land and water vehicle is here! Yes, now you can move effortlessly from one to the other with this amazing electric powered hovercraft.Carefully designed for realism, the detail on this rc hovercraft is excellent. It has a powerful rear mounted fan with rudders and a black rubber skirt as seen on the famous cross-channel hovercraft.It comes in a range of striking colour schemes and will bring a smile to anybody’s face, as you take it off land and drive it into water for the first time!

Pick of the Planes

This is all about RC planes,  Nitrotek has a great selection of radio controlled planes to suit all kinds of pilots, from beginners to advanced fliers.
RC planes for Beginners:
The best radio controlled plane to get started with is probably the Hawk Sky 4CH Brushless Sport Trainer Plane – 2.4GHz

Our Price £124.99

This is a great remote control plane for a novice wanting to start flying. Controls are easy to learn and you can alter the setting to make the plane more or less responsive depending on your skill level. It’s a great 4 channel RC plane, but you could use it as a 3 channel – just don’t hook up the wire for the wings and you get a basic flyer. I prefer to get going with the 4channel straight off, you can do rolls, inverted flight and loops! The standard battery that comes with the remote control plane lasts about 30 mins flying time. The plane is made of strong EPO foam and will take the good odd knock, but any straight fast dive into the ground and it will need a repair. The Transmitter works great, it’s a  nice size and is a 2.4 gHz, so you get a good signal. The rc plane comes 95% complete; all you need to do is fix the tail section on, connect up the rods etc. and apply the decals – all takes about an hour (plus time for the glue to dry).

Warbird – radio controlled planes:

We have an extensive range of radio controlled planes in this category , I personally love the new Spitfire 4Ch RC Plane with Retractable Landing Gear 2.4GHz from Dynam.

Our Price £164.99 RTF version

The new Spitfire 1200mm RC Warbird by Dynam comes with everything included. The 11.1V 2200mah li-po battery provides an impressive 18 minutes flight time between each charge.The high powered 1100KV Brushless motor and 3 blade propeller provide more than enough motive power to give stunning stability in all weather conditions! The all new working electronic worm drive retracts provide added scale realism and functionality that makes this rc plane stand out from the rest. Retracting the wheels after take off looks fantastic and will wow any onlookers. The model is ready to fly and great durability add a new dimension to this feature rich model.

The remote control plane is made of highly durable EPO-foam for added durability.

Large scale RC planes:

From the choice of large scale models I have picked a truly remarkable rc plane – the MX2 Green RC Plane.

Our Price £129.98 Plug-And-Play Version

The MX2 Green we have here is a replica of the first one used in the first air race season in 2006 in Abu Dhabi. Starmax have pulled out all the stops with this one and it looks magnificent. With its sporting acrobatic pedigree this is a radio controlled aeroplane that will give the experienced pilot hours of grin factor entertainment.

This is a large scale rc plane offering both great looks and additional stability in the air, even when it is windy.

I think this gives you enough food for thought for now. I will have more on RC planes later this week, on gliders and Jets, so please stay tuned in.

GS Racing Team in Action

NNRC Winter Series Rd1

NNRC Winter series Rd1
Ian (right) and Gavin (left) from GS Racing Team UK both pictured with the GS Racing Storm CLX Pro 1/8th Nitro Rc Buggy.

“This past Sunday 16/10/2011 saw the first round of NNRC’s winter series at the all astro venue just outside Preston.

We were greeted with a “it’s grim oop norf” start to the day with that horrible drrizzle, you know the kind that soaks ya thru. But the hardy northerners ever optimistic stuck it out and were rewarded with clear skies not long after 10am even though the track would stay wet right up to the finals. The quallies saw local lad Ollie Evans and his OS powered Losi putting on a cracking performance equalled by GS driver Ian Boushear with a very composed and well set up car, both drivers coping well with the tricky conditions. In truggies NNRC timekeeper and resident ginger Wayne Eley lead the way initially, with Ste Jones hot on his heels. Kev Davies would then stamp his authority on proceedings in the third round as he got to grips with the Losi Truggy after changing from JQ buggies for winter, showing the guys why he is twice club champ at NNRC.

The final were 25 mins of war, especially in truggies with Wayne, Ste, & Kev going toe to toe for the first 9 mins until lapped traffic played it’s hand and saw Kev drop back from the leaders after struggling to get past lapped cars. And Wayne was also to retire with mechanical issues, giving Ste a well-deserved win.

The Buggy A final was more of the same with Ollie and Ian going at it for the full 25 mins. With some skilful overtakes and awesome machine control from the both of them. I must say tho the GS looks impressive in Ians hands!

Final results were:

Truggy/Buggy B:
1st Ste Jones
2nd Kev Davies
3rd Andy

Buggy A:
1st Ollie Evans
2nd Ian Boushear (GS Racing Team UK)
3rd Gaz Davies

The front of the fuselage can be detached without using tools, making it easier to change the battery, and make repairs. At the centre of the helicopter is a simple 3 in 1 controller that does all the jobs of the gyro, receiver and mixer.

The Honey Bee CT – Remote Control Helicopter is supplied with all you need, including batteries for the radio transmitter and field charger. This radio controlled helicopter comes with the newly design 2.4GHz frequency RC system with advanced Spread Spectrum Technology (SST) and digital FSK (frequency shift key) coding technology.
