HobbyKing is proud to carry the Mobius ActionCam, a small, lightweight, fully configurable low cost HD video camera.

The Mobius ActionCam is the natural progression of the ever-popular 808 key chain camera. The developers of the 808 and the open source community came together to create a more capable 1080p level of hardware, but keeping what made the 808 cameras so great; small, lightweight, configurable and of course great video at a low cost.

The Mobius has been embraced by the DIY and Open Source community, pushing the ever growing software envelope and coming up with new ways to use the Mobius, such as different lenses and ribbon cables to relocate the camera section. The Mobius can even be reconfigured, settings changed and firmware updated using the free computer GUI software.

The Mobius camera is quickly becoming the go to camera for the RC community, with its low cost, video out capability for FPV use, superb HD video recording and DIY configurability. It is a great all-around action camera with a host of accessories and mounting options, for a wide range of applications.

The Wide Angle “C” lens has a wider FOV (field of view) than the previous wide angle “B” lens camera, 132 degrees vs the 116 degrees of the previous lens. The lens assembly has better color balance and brightness across the entire frame with the same edge to edge image sharpness and fidelity as the previous B model.

The PC-6 Turbo Porter is noted for its Short Take-off and Landing (STOL) performance on almost any type of terrain, capable of taking off within a distance of 640 feet and landing within a distance of 427 feet while carrying a payload of 2,646 lbs. Thanks to its STOL performance, the PC-6 holds the world record for highest landing by a fixed-wing aircraft, at 18,865 feet (5,750 m), on the Dhaulagiri glacier in Nepal.

Due to these characteristics, they are frequently used to access short grass mountaintop airstrips in the highlands of Papua Province (Indonesia) and Papua New Guinea. The Porter was also manufactured under license in the United States during the early 1970s for operations during the Vietnam War. It received the designation AU-23A Peacemaker for service with the U.S. Air Force and UV-20 Chiricahua for service with the U.S. Army.

Our PC-6 a fully molded airframe made of rugged EPO foam. Arriving as a plug and fly model, the PC-6 can be prepared for flight in about an hour of work. It requires no glue to construct as it is all bolt or screw together design. The pre-installed 4212 700kv motor provides ample power for scale short take-offs and glider towing duty all on the very common 4S 14.8V 3000mAh lipo. Accessing that lipo is very easy through a hatch on the bottom of the airplane. No need to pull the wing off just to change packs. Though a sport scale model, the PC-6 features scale wing struts and its very recognizable wide set landing gear.

Flying the PC-6 is great; with its large wing it will float around nicely at slower speeds, but apply full throttle and jam the sticks in the corners and she comes alive. Takeoffs and landings are a breeze thanks to the steerable tail wheel and wide set main gear. Lower the flaps to really slow down for smooth, precise landings. Other great features are working LED lights, a glider release mechanism, and even a dropper door in the fuselage bottom for releasing candy, parachute men, or whatever!

This classic scale STOL model is available now. A small amount of work is all that is needed to make this classic ready to go!

Features:
• Plug and Fly - Just add radio sytem, battery and fly!
• Molded from rugged EPO foam
• All bolt together construction, no glue required
• Easy access bottom hatch for quick battery changes
• Glider release mechanism

The German Me-163 Komet was the worlds first and only rocket powered fighter. Designed as a rapid response interceptor to combat the US daylight bombing raids, the Komet was years ahead of anything the allies possessed with speeds upwards of 600mph and an incredible rate of climb. The Komet's volatile rocket system accelerated the Me-163 to an altitude of 39,000ft in just minutes from which it then only had 3 minutes of fuel left to attack its targets with its deadly 30mm canons. Once out of fuel it became a glider and very vulnerable to fighter attack when returning to base for landing. Although it can be considered a failure in operational terms, the Me-163 has gone down in history as a truly legendary aircraft of WW2 thanks to its ground breaking design and blistering rocket performance.

The Durafly Me-163 is in itself a truly a ground breaking model. Not only does this Komet feature a fully working scale 'dolly' style undercarriage, blistering performance and a high quality finish, but it is designed out of the box to accept a model rocket engine! In its Plug and Fly (PnF) form, Durafly's 950mm (37.5") span Me-163 comes with all electronics pre-installed and ready to hook up to your choice of 6ch receiver. A minimal part count allows assembly to be completed in just a few steps. The molded EPO has a highly detailed surface finish externally, carbon reinforcement internally and features a color matched hard plastic belly skid. It also has good access to all electronics via the battery/canopy hatch, excellent cooling through out and of course a very authentic looking scheme. Quality is definitely the name of the game.

Designed for pilots with some experience, Me-163 benefits from incredible flight performance and stability throughout the speed range. Full power climb outs, virtually unlimited vertical, huge loops, blistering rolls and very fast passes are easily had at full throttle. Slow the Me-163 down and she's just as stable and has no hint of a stall. Using the recommended 2200mah 30-65C 3S lipo and supplied 6x4 prop, you can expect flight times well beyond 6 minutes and with excellent performance throughout. If you are looking for a lighter set-up, the Durafly Komet is equally happy on a 1300mah 3s, especially at lower speeds.

For those of you looking for the ultimate scale experience, the optional rocket system is a simple drop-in affair (see manual for details), and will give you a thrill like no other. The working dolly-drop is activated at the flick of a switch on your transmitter, allowing for the most scale of take-offs.

Durafly have taken EPO scale models to the next-level with the Komet, and have put you firmly in the pilot seat with the new Me-163.

Features:
• Scale and fully functional dolly style undercarriage
• Ready made for drop in optional rocket motor system
• High level of pre-assembly and minimal part count
• Tough EPO construction with extensive carbon reinforcement
• Super smooth surface finish
• Stable and high performing aerodynamic design
• Large canopy/battery hatch for easy access to electronics
• Authentic and re-applied decals and paint finish

Specs:
Wingspan: 950mm (37.4")
Length: 585mm (23')
Flying Weight: 800-850g (28-30oz)
ESC: Durafly 40A brushless ESC
Motor: Durafly 2836 2200kv Outrunner
Prop: 6x4 (2 included)
Servos: 2 x metal geared 9g (aileron/elevator) 1 x 9g rudder
Controls: 6 ch 'Elevons' (aileron/elevator), throttle, rudder, gear (dolly), optional rocket switch.

C6-0 (18mm) class rocket motor from local supplier

Note:
Due to the size of the box, it is recommended that you order this model separately from any other large parts so as to avoid higher shipping costs.

For those of you looking for the ultimate scale experience, the optional rocket system is a simple drop-in affair (see manual for details), and will give you a thrill like no other. The working dolly-drop is activated at the flick of a switch on your transmitter, allowing for the most scale of take-offs.

Durafly have taken EPO scale models to the next-level with the Komet, and have put you firmly in the pilot seat with the new Me-163.

Features:
• Scale and fully functional dolly style undercarriage
• Ready made for drop in optional rocket motor system
• High level of pre-assembly and minimal part count

To make the Fabrikator as affordable as possible for you we have designed it as a simple to put together flat pack kit, which if you follow the excellent manual in conjunction with the video series you will have it built in a few hours.

Hi,

I am about to order a plane from your International warehouse as it is not available in the Australian warehouse. I am writing aboutyour shipping cost to Australia which I find to be extremely uncompetitive.

My proposed order is under 5kg and your cheapest shipping option, "AU Bulk shipping via PLT" (I don't even know which courier that is) costs USD123. I compare this with shipping by one of your competitors RC-Castle also based in Hong Kong for a plane kit weighing 4.9kg (see attachment) using Hong Kong EMS Speedpost which costs only USD91. Why can't HobbyKing ship by Hong Kong Post Speedpost for the same cost as RC-Castle?

I have placed my order on hold as I find the shipping cost excessive and I don't even know what courier company you are using and whether I will get real-time tracking information which Hong Kong Post EMS provides.

I do hope you will sort out your Australian shipping very soon as I enjoy shopping at HobbyKing but the current shipping options makes that very inconvenient.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
Jeffrey
