Ares Nano Micro Chronos CX 75 RTF Helicopter Review
It seems like all bashers have a place in their heart for some sort of flight. Either with foam plans, or nano helis, most of us own at least one. We recently got our hands on the new Ares micro heli, and decided to put it to the test. Would it satisfy our need for air time? Keep Reading..
Ares RC has sent some info on their new helicopters called the Chronos CX 75. It’s a Nano-Micro Heli that sounds like it has us bashers in mind. It’s RTF (Ready to Fly) out of the box, and is designed to be durable so anyone can learn to fly it. It comes with the batteries you need, a 2.4GHz radio, and is ready to fly in minutes.
We just got our hands on one of these, so look for a review coming very soon. Anyone can fly huh? Maybe I should hand it to Cubby!
The Ares line is a HobbyTown exclusive, so you will need to head there to pick one up, or buy it online.

So we normally do not do helicopter reviews, and if we did do them, it would probably be from a major manufacturer, but this review is special in a few ways. Every once in a while we get occasional questions asking us about the mini helicopters people see around. They want to know if they are worth it, are they total junk? And there are a lot of bashers out there that seem to have the ‘flying’ bug. They aren’t looking to get into the hobby of flying, but just want something to satisfy this occasional craving. Will the Jin Xing DA help any of this? Is it worth getting? Keep reading to find out….
Heli-Max also has a new heli that is a great step up from a beginner’s coaxial. It’s thee Novus 125 FP. FP stands for Fixed Pitch. A fixed pitch heli isn’t as manueverable as one that has collective pitch, but it is a bit easier to fly. The Novus 125 is a
sub-micro sized heli, meaning you can fly it in relatively confined spaces indoors, but you’ll still be able to take it outside on calm days. It’s the perfect platform for your large basement or backyard. The Novus comes ready-to-fly with a 2.4 GHz 4 channel radio, a 600 mAh 3.7v lipo, and charger. It’s also got a couple of surprising features considering it’s cost and size. A heading-hold gyro is mounted and providing all kinds of gyro-y goodness and the tail rotor is driven by the main motor by way of a torque tube. Both of those are huge steps up for this class of r/c helis.

If you’re thinking about getting an r/c helicopter and you have no experience flying one, your best bet for success is to get a small coaxial helicopter. Heli-Max has a new nano sized coaxial that is perfect for beginners. The Novus UH-1D Huey is an extremely detailed, tiny helicopter that is perfect for flying around your living room and learning all the heli piloting basics. It’s completely ready-to-fly out of the box, coming with a 2.4 GHz 4-channel radio with dual rates, plus a couple lipo batteries, and a charger. Some of it’s cooler features are a heading-hold gyro, functioning navigation lights, a detailed cockpit, and a motorized tail-rotor.

Check this thing out! The new indoor heli from Revell, Fire Strike Pro, looks pretty dang cool! The counter-rotating technology lately has made it so easy to fly these smaller heli’s, I love it! I have never seen a 4 blade chopper of this size in action, and really looking forward to see how it handles! It comes with a built in LiPo and is ready to fly right out of the box! With a price of around $70, it seems like a must try! The full press release is in the
