JConcepts is built on the passion and experience of its devoted staff. Since their beginning, they have introduced cutting edge designs, trend setting style and championship winning race results. JConcepts provides unparalleled support to the racer and enthusiast alike while always striving to set a new standard in performance. JConcepts products have proven themselves on tracks around the world and we are proud to now be able to offer them to you.

This is the JConcepts Buggy Rear Tires - Pressure Points
JConcepts, a leader in 1/10th vehicle performance, with accredited victories around the world, including ROAR National Championships and IFMAR World Championships, has added another piece to its successful racing arsenal. The Pressure Points are the latest low-height tread option specifically designed to tame high-speed courses with either wet or blue groove traction conditions. The design starts as an angular, low pin design as a carryover from the successful Bar Codes front tire line-up. The small “points” combined with “lower case” Y elements developed on the original Bar Codes V1 rear tire provide the ultimate in surface area “pressure” penetration and tack.
The inner carcass and side-wall has built-in ribbing which limits carcass collapse and increases support on the outside during hard cornering and driving. The new inner ribbing, combined with the included JConcepts insert, is a perfect match to provide the ultimate in support, traction and consistency.

In the movies, it’s been said that loose is fast and on the edge of out of control. In our world, loose is slow and off the pace. The Pressure Points are designed to be driven hard while maintaining the grip necessary to drive at the limit. The edges of the side-walls have been carefully rolled for a smooth transition during cornering which limits traction-roll characteristics and allows the driver control during the all important tipping point every driver has experienced.

Just like all JConcepts tires, the Pressure Points are a proven winner. JConcepts driver Ryan Maifield TQ’ed such races at the JConcepts Clash and Arizona State Championships with Pressure points while JR Mitch TQ’ed the 11th annual Bigfoot Extravaganza with the Pressure Points gripping the dirt.

Go for the vitals with JConcepts, attack with Pressure Points.

Features:
• Available in Soft (Blue), Super Soft (Green) and Indoor Soft (Gold)
• Low-height tread, specifically designed to tame high-speed courses
• Inner carcass and side-wall ribbing, limits carcass collapse and increases support

The full size Fokker D.VII was a front line German fighter that entered operational service late during World War I. It differed greatly in design function using a cantelevered wing, which required no external flying or landing wires. The wings being of much thicker design than many of the biplanes of the day. It featured a much tamer stall than the Albatros, Sopwiths, and others of the time, making it a much higher performance airplane that was a formidable opponant. Built by three different factories during the war, it was used after the Armistice by other countries in ground attack roles, and examples went to the US, France, England and others for use as evaluation airplanes. It was highly manueverable, well armed, and had a reliable engine, making it one of the best fighters of the first World War!

Our Fokker D.VII is built up from light weight balsa and plywood and covered in strong, yet light weight plastic film covering. Arriving almost ready to fly, you just need to complete final assembly, then install your choice of electronics and battery. Since it is a biplane, setup is critical, so included in the box are some laser cut plywood setup jigs. The cabane struts feature threaded ball ends that are adjustable allowing you to easily perfect the setup of the model.

Access the battery, motor, and other electronics through the large removable hatch on the fuselage top. Scale details like a formed plastic engine and dummy machine guns round out the model, making this a fun, sport scale airplane.

The internal resistance (IR) of a lipoly pack is made up of the resistances of each cell plus the wire and connections. Measurement of the IR of a battery is a guide to its condition, regular monitoring will tell you if the battery is starting to deteriorate or not. As many of you may know IR is a dynamic condition, the resistance will become more important with the more charge/discharge cycles it is subject to. This means that the cells will find it harder each time delivering their power until they reach a point where they are unusable.

The Turnigy IR meter can measure the IR of 2~8cell lipoly packs with a capacity of 200mAH up to 6000mAH, (Please note: during the test 10A load will be placed on the pack so ensure the pack is capable of doing this).

The operation of the unit is very simple, just connect the XT60 power plug and the balance plug into the appropriate sockets of the unit. Press the ON/Off button to start the test, after a few seconds the voltage and the IR results will be displayed on the very clear to read LCD screen. Press the On/Off button once more but this time for about 3secs and this will then turn the unit off.

This unit is a very simple way of keeping a watchful eye on all your lipoly batteries, it is a must for all, no more getting caught out on the flying field with an unhealthy battery.

Features:
• Robust electronics
• Easy to use
• Battery error warning
• Balance port error warning

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.

Customs declaration - it's illegal to enter a fraudulent (incorrect) value

Shipping costs - which option did you choose and from which warehouse?]]>
<![CDATA[Sugestions : Linkspyder]]> http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=63581
Let me express my content to see when placing an order:

Handling paypal fees! Thats right, just payed over 10€ as for commission !!?? Wtf? 1rst time ever on This amount;
Having to place 3 orders to be able to request a lower customs declaration?? What the hell??
Shipping cost of 4 bright 3w leds from uk to portugal 26€??? Nonsense

Let me give you an advise, especially to your ceos: just ask banggood how on earth they get those shipping rates, start acting like them and maybe then, youll start gettiing bigger christmas bonuses with the extra clients.

Sorry for my misspelling, english is my 3rd language.

Put the Bind plug into the Receiver 'ID SET'.
Power up Receiver.
Power up Transmitter.
Wait 10 seconds.
Remove Bind Plug.
Turn off Receiver.
Turn off Transmitter.

Then connect up servos as required.

Then, the correct way to turn radio systems on during normal use is Transmitter on first, then Receiver on. Turning off is the reverse of that - Receiver off and then Transmitter off.

Seems strange that you had a Transmitter with a fault happening on chan4, and also with a second one. The Receiver that is 'rattling' really should not be - but it could be a locating tongue or suchlike loose inside, or a broken component remains. Does it light up at all?

Same happened with me just after the UK w/h opened and I ordered the apparent 1 remaining Bixler. Next day I had a huge whack of bonus points added to my account. One querying that, it was for the Bixler that was out of stock as there had been a warehousing error. But unfortunately, due to exchange rate changes, it was less than I actually paid on the day. Cheek of it! lol!!!]]>
