Global's EF Helicopters' Sabre Electric Microheli Review Global's EF Helicopters' Sabre Electric Microheli Review
By Michael Heer
Michael Heer explores the newest EF Helicopters' microheli -- the RTF Sabre. This little sister to the Shogun requires just eight AA batteries (that you supply) for the included transmitter and for the user to cycle the Nimh Battery for the copter and she is ready to fly. This microheli comes powered with a 370 main motor for indoors or no/low wind days outdoors and LITERALLY flies right out of the box.

JGRC Aggressor Delta Lasercut Kit Review JGRC Aggressor Delta Lasercut Kit Review
By David Hogue
"This was JGRC's first kit and it is one to be proud of. This kit is all high quality, from the laser cut wood, carbon fiber booms, to the Dubro hardware. Not only do the parts all interlock, but with dovetail joints on many parts, they can only fit in correctly. The interlocking parts of this kit make it possible to build it in midair and still be assured of a straight model."

Cermark Banchee E3D Review Cermark Banchee E3D Review
By Christine
A quick build time and docile nature in the air lends me to believe the Banchee would be well suited to anyone from the relative aerobatic notive to the seasoned flying veteran. If "fun" is what you're looking for in a '40' sized airframe, then the Banchee is it.
