Okay kids, here's some of the new "goodies" that some of your favorite vendors are hawking this year at the Toledo show.

Let's start off with Horizon hobbies:

In the ever-blossoming Bind-n-Fly category, Parkzone has a full house control SU-26 that is going to take the indoor & microflyer category by storm.

E-flite's Nieuport 17 Slow Flyer is an electric indoor Slow Flyer that is perfectly suited for their Park 250 outrunner and looks to be a fantastic flying foamie making it perfect for indoor flight as well as a real calm evening outdoor plane.

As if the Blade MCX wasn't hot enough, check out the mcx300! This is one nimble little RTF contra-rotating heli!

The Blade® CX3 gives pilots an even nicer flying experience than the CX 2. It now has a heading lock gyro to provide better control and has an MD 520N scale body with an attractive police trim scheme. A really cool LED light package is available for it as well.

It is 100% factory assembled, test flown and ready to fly out of the box, no assembly or setup required and nothing left to buy.

Default Shulman Aviation

Jason, David and the gang at Shulman Aviation have really brought it to the table this year. Edf units, a full line of ESC's and also outrunners for small foamies right up to a full competition level F3A motor.

Do not let the high wing trainer like style of the Super Cessna that David Shulman is holding fool you, that is one mean aerobatic performer! Yet is tame as a trainer.

The Turbinator looks extremely exciting as well for the 70mm class of ducted fan models.

Exclamation EDF's abound

EDF's really are on the rise and Hoffman Magnetics has some great solutions for powering them.

They currently have an integrated 70mm setup that is a REAL smoker and a full line of brushless outrunners for both EDF's and prop planes alike that are coming out very soon and are like nothing else on the market right now.

I know, $99 is just mind blowing for this plane. It is definitely on my gotta have list.

Yes, this will bind to your TX. The only Spektrum TX it will not bind to is the old original DX6.

Default PA

Say PA, and if you are into electric aerobatics you know exactly what is being talked about.

Precision Aerobatics brings it again and again and this year at Toledo was no different.
