Great Planes Cirrus SR22T GP/EP ARF 69″

The newest plane in the line-up for Great Planes is the Cirrus SR22T. The Cirrus has a lot of things going for it, the first thing being its scale detailing.

ST Racing Concepts Now Distributed By Great Planes

While talking to a friend of mine over at Great Planes today, I learned they recently picked up the ST Racing Concepts line of hop-up parts.

Hobbico At HobbyTown USA Convention

Hobbico At The HobbyTown USA Convention

In one of the extra large suites was our good friends from Champaign Illinois based Hobbico. You might recognize them better as Great Planes Distribution and Tower Hobbies. Hobbico had many products from their vast product lines on display from names such as ARRMA, Duratrax, and Axial. They didn’t debut any new surface product at the convention, but it was [...]


RCX 2012 – Great Planes/Hobbico booth

Unfortunately, Hobbico didn’t have any beans to spill to us as far as new or upcoming products, but they still have a very large presence at RCX, showing off a ton of their relatively new products like the DuraTrax VW Baja Bug (which we recently reviewed), and all of their recently acquired Team Durango products.  Check out some more pics [...]

We sort of guessed this would happen after Hobbico purchased Durango, but it’s good news because Durango parts and kits will be available through Tower Hobbies! That will make it MUCH easier to get parts and things [...]

Thunder Tiger Mini Kart

This is something cool at IHobby from Thunder Tiger, being distributed by the fine folks at Great Planes.  I totally forgot to write down the info on this thing, but some of the stuff I can recall from the images is that it’s a relatively small, slight larger than a 1/18 scale car or truck.  It’s also going to  be [...]
