**Pre-Order** ETA: late October

Yokomo is introducing the BD7 2015 Black Series high-performance competition touring car kit for the 2015 racing season, the successor to the highly-popular and race-winning BD7 2014.

Stability and cornering speed are two important factors when it comes to racing. This is also true in the R/C touring car category. The BD7 2015 has been engineered to deliver those two contrasting but essential characteristics to assist you in achieving success not only in high-speed races of the modified class, but also for stock class racing where regulations restrict maximum speed. The performance potential the car possesses becomes a major advantage in gaining the upper hand.

The Yokomo BD7 platform has pioneered the configuration that improves grip by reducing the rigidity of the bulkhead area. The BD7 2015 further evolves that trend setting concept by lowering the center-of-gravity with the bulkhead caps, and enabling variable adjustment of the front and rear grip balance by attaching or removing the newly-designed cross bulkhead. These features gives the new BD7 2015 much higher cornering speed, a level which is out of this dimension.

Furthermore, the newly-designed motor mount, battery holder and chassis contributes to the improved roll characteristics. Of particular importance is the newly-developed battery holder which affixes the battery in a way that does not disrupt the excellent torsion characteristics of the chassis, which allows nearly-equal left and right steering characteristics, leading to improved handling and reduced uneven wear of the tires.

The performance potential that the new BD7 2015 has acquired through continued technological innovation will no doubt make the BD7 2015 the ultimate competition kit and it will continue to lead the current touring car racing scene!

Yokomo will lead you to victory!

Features:
• Newly-designed carbon double-deck chassis which actualizes ultimate maneuverability
• Newly-designed motor mount which optimizes the torsion characteristics of the chassis
• Newly-designed front and rear bulkheads affixed by cross bulkheads which allows adjusting of the chassis roll freely
• Re-engineered battery holder and weight attachment methods prevents disruption of the chassis torsional characteristics leading to even left/right steering
• Newly-designed lightweight front spool joint
• Newly-designed gear differential
• Support for wider range of gear ratio configurations, allowing comprehensive compatibility with various racing regulations, such as sport, stock and modified class racing

iKON - Are You Ready?
Brought forth by MSH - the makers of the 'Brain' - the iKon represents a new leap in flybarless control. Bert Kammerer, in cooperation with MSH, worked tirelessly to fine tune the iKon flybarless controller to perfection. Every aspect of firmware has been fine-tuned and optimized, and in the end, we can say this system simply has no equal on the market today.  The iKon is ready to change everything. Get ready for the iKon - it's ready for you.

Vibration Resistant - Bad Vibes Goodbye.
Simply put, gyros hate vibration, and when a flybarless system is sensitive to vibration, this has a direct impact on flight performance. The iKon flybarless unit utilizes new vibration dampening technology to isolate vibrations and put them in their place. This results in rock solid flight with nothing but true, direct flight performance that you can see and feel.

Simplified Setup - The Wizard is Here.
Nothing is more irritating, frustrating and time consuming than fumbling with manuals, setup videos and tech help when it comes to proper flybarless setup. No more - the wizard takes control. Utilizing an easy to follow and fuss free setup, the iKon takes a simplified approach to flybarless setup, allowing you to spend less time tuning and more time flying - just the way it should be.

Auto Level Technology - This is It.
That sickening crash can now be put behind you with auto level technology. For anyone still learning the basics, or those pushing new 3D limits, the auto level technology built within the iKon will revolutionize the way you fly, allowing you to push the limits with less risk of crashing. This technology is one of the multiple reasons that make the iKon so special, allowing a recovery from any orientation, no matter if the aircraft is right side up or upside down. Unlike other "bail out" technologies, the iKon "knows" how the aircraft is orientated, allowing a right side up recover every single time. Further, with auto level technology, the aircraft will remain level, allowing those first few training flights to be truly memorable - in a good way.

Satellite & S-Bus Ready - It's Your Choice.
Allowing the convenience of satellite technology, the iKon supports Spektrum DSM2 & DSMX satellite receivers, along with S-Bus technology via Futaba. On the Spektrum side, (2) satellite ports are offered for maximum redundancy & path diversity, suited for helicopters 500 sized and greater.

Built in Governor - Set Your Speed & Flight Mode.
Utilizing a transmitter selectable governor, the iKon brings compact flybarless technology to every level of the helicopter, allowing you to dial in that perfect rotor speed that suits your style, all at the flip of a switch. Incorporating a selectable (3) switch flight mode program, the iKon allows you to dial in your helicopter with fully adjustable flight mode parameters to obtain the very best from every flight. No more ancillary devices needed on your machine - the iKon handles it all.

The all-metal Yak-52 is powered by a 268 kW (360 hp) Vedeneyev M14P 9-cylinder radial engine and was a descendent of the Yak-50.

It was designed to serve as a military trainer with the development of the aircraft incorporating a number of features found on the early post-war fighters namely the tandem cockpit layout, tail design, tricycle landing gear, mixed fuselage construction (monocoque with steel tube construction), inner flaps, controls position, access panels on sides of the fuselage, even the location of the radio antenna and overall dimensions of the airplane, strikingly match with the Yakovlev Yak-17 UTI jet fighter trainer.

At 998 kg empty weight, the Yak-52 is responsive and very capable as an aerobatic aircraft. Yet it is also easy to fly and land. It has been used in international aerobatic competition up to the advanced level. It is stressed to +7 and –5 Gs, rolls (to the right) at 180 degrees/second and is capable of every manoeuvre in the Aresti catalog.

The Yak-52, like most Soviet military aircraft, was designed to operate in rugged environments with minimal maintenance. One of its key features, unusual in western aircraft, is its extensive pneumatic system. Engine starting, landing gear, flaps, and wheel brakes are all pneumatically actuated.

This model of the Yak-52 captures the graceful lines and mean look of the full size airplane and the weathered, detailed finish will turn heads where ever you fly. The model has been designed around a .40~46 size 2-stroke or .61~70 4 stroke engines though equally at home with an equivalent size electric motor. It is supplied with fixed landing gear but it is easily converted to retracts, the wheel wells are already installed. It is a sport scale model of the Yak-52TW (Tail wheel) which is great as you can operate it out of rougher landing strips with ease.

The model is of balsa and lite-ply construction and is fully covered in a scale weathered camoflaged finish. Also supplied is a fiberglass cowling, landing gear doors, machine gun detail and hand painted pilot.

Features:
• Almost Ready to Fly - Just complete final assembly and install your equipment

Designed specifically for the Losi 1/14th Mini 8ight Buggy and Truggy. This nano-tech battery pack offers 100mAh more capacity than the original Dynamite option battery and a much higher discharge rate. More punch, more power and longer drive times are only the beginning. When tested with the Dynamite DYN1477 the differences between the original battery and the nano-tech where remarkable! Out of the corner power was remarkable due to the extra capacity and C rate of this battery. Bring your Losi 1/14th Mini 8ight to life with the nano-tech upgrade cell!

Specs:
Capacity: 1500mAh
Voltage: 3S1P / 3 Cell / 11.1V
Discharge: 30C Constant / 60C Burst
Weight: 118g
Dimensions: 96x19x29mm
Discharge Plug: EC3

Suited to the following models: Losi 1/14 Mini 8ight Buggy and Truggy

* The nano-core technology in lithium ion batteries is the application of nanometer conductive additives.
1) The nanometer conductive additives form ultrastrong electron-conducting networks in the electrodes which can increase electronic conductivity.
2) These additives create a superstrong ability for imbibition in the carrier liquid to supply more ion channels. This improves the ability of ion transmission and ion diffusion. Through improving electronic conductivity and ion transmission, the impedance is reduced and the polarization of high rate discharge decreases greatly.
Advantages over traditional Lipo batteries;
-Power density reaches 7.5 kw/kg.
-Less Voltage sag during high rate discharge, giving more power under load.
-Internal impedance can reach as low as 1.2mΩ compared to that of 3mΩ of a standard Lipoly.
-Greater thermal control, pack usually doesnt exceed 60degC
-Thickness swelling during heavy load doesnt exceed 5%, compared to 15% of a normal Lipoly during heavy load.
-Higher capacity during heavy discharge. More than 90% at 100% C rate.
-Fast charge capable, up to 15C on some batteries.
-Longer Cycle Life, almost double that of standard lipoly technology.

FOAM-CURE™ is a silicone based adhesive that works very well on EPP and EPO foams. It is crystal clear and cures to a more flexible consistency than CA. It is, however, not instant bonding like CA and there is no accelerator to speed its curing. To obtain a faster initial bond when bonding two pieces, FOAM-CURE™ can be applied to one piece and after the two are joined, they can then be pulled apart. After letting it air dry for about ten minutes, FOAM-CURE™ will act like a contact cement when the parts are re-joined, resulting in enough tack strength to allow the next steps of assembly. Full strength is reached in 10-12 hours.
 
FOAM-CURE™ works with all foams, and will actually bond most other materials. It will bond wood and plastic to foam, and is a good canopy glue. FOAM-CURE™ does not, however, cure flexible enough to act as a hinge for aircraft control surfaces. Its limitations occur when bonding large areas of two non-porous materials. FOAM-CURE™ requires exposure to air for drying. If one tried to bond, for example, a half-dollar coin to glass, over 90% of the adhesive would never cure, since the solvent it contains would have nowhere to evaporate.

The popular Naze32 is here! Initially designed for use with small to mid-sized multirotor craft, it has become the go-to controller for a host of Multirotor projects and propheads.

The infamous Hamasaki AKA “timecop” was not happy with the limitations and performance an 8-bit MCU could deliver on current FC platforms, so he set out to make a flight controller that could take just about any demands a developer could throw at it, and thus was born the Naze32. At the heart of the Naze32 is a 32bit ST micro work horse of a processer, with untapped memory and cpu power and a host of equally impressive sensors. The Naze is also matched up with some of the nicest GUI programs and features to get the most out of your configuration.

The Naze32 comes as the most complete Acro Version yet, with pre-soldered strait pins for your preference and a matched break out harness.

The HobbyKing version is fully authorized and royalties are paid to the developer on each Naze32 sold.

Features:
• Flexible motor outputs, support various airframe types:
Quad/Hexa/Tri/Bi/Y4/Y6/Octo/Camera Gimbal. (Default is Quad-X)
• Up to 8 ch RC input - supports standard receivers (PWM), PPM Sum receiver (FrSky, etc), or Spektrum satellite receivers.
• Built in FrSky telemetry inverter (shared w/main port)
• Battery voltage monitoring
• Modern 32-bit processor running at 3.3V/72MHz (STM32F103CB).
• Onboard MicroUSB for setup and configuration
• LEDs so bright, they could blind you
• MultiWii-based configuration software for easy setup
• Pre-Soldered Pin for plug and play

Since when do we ever put anything like 400amps through wires as thin as that? I've seen thicker wires on LiPos that could only deliver (safely) around 50 amps. Heck, I've used a big DC welder running 5mm rods with cables about 20mm diameter at just over 300 amps and they would get pretty darn warm.]]>

I wanted to get SunnySky x2204s motors but the cheapest I could find was £17.50 each, which is too much...

Also plan to get naze32 not sure whether to get acro or full... going to use my current kk2.1.5 for now

Also, shall I get 1500mAh batteries or 1300mAh? 1500mAh turnigy nano-tech are £2.10 more each but 2g less according to the site.

Any suggestions?DevonUK2014-10-30 18:44:34]]>
