The Onyx 245 can charge two batteries of different chemistries simultaneously — from NiMH to LiPo to LiFeSource™ Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFe).

From the Experts: LiPo, LiFe, NiCd, NiMH...the Onyx 245 charges them all, with built-in balancing that maximizes their safety, longevity and performance. Its dual charging capability keeps bashers in action whose vehicles require two packs for operation — as well as competitors running in two classes who need to charge both receiver and race packs, and modelers who rotate through multiple batteries at home or at the track.

Long story short... With its power and versatility, the Onyx 245 gives racers yet another advantage on race day!

WARNING: The F-16 Fighting Falcon requires advanced flying skills and is not suitable for beginning or intermediate pilots. It reaches speeds of over 90 mph (145 km/h), and should only be flown at an approved AMA flying site.

From the Experts: In the hands of an experienced pilot, the F-16’s blink-of-an-eye fly-bys are a rush you have to see to fully appreciate! The ducted fan unit and brushless motor combine to produce efficient and impressive thrust and speed in a convenient size — and you’ll be equally proud to display this jet model when it’s not tearing holes in the sky!

Up close. Personal. True to Life

Flying isn’t just flying: it’s an experience. It’s not just shaped by big things, like where you are and what you’re flying, but by little things, as well: wind speed and weather, how your aircraft responds, sights and sounds, the time of day, the way your transmitter feels in your hands and more. Each experience is unique — and no other flight sim captures the flight experience better than RealFlight.

“I started using LiFeSource batteries in my Scale Aerobatic birds right after they came out, and I have been very happy with them so far. One of the things I like best about them is the ability to charge a week or so prior to flying and still know the batteries are ready to go a week or more down the road. Since then I’ve equipped all of my aircraft with LiFeSource (including my helicopters). I have both 3200 and 2100 packs in use right now. I must admit I also like the safety of them — none of the worries I had when using LiPos as receivers, and no regulators either!”

The iconic “Willys Jeep,” in 1/24 scale. One of the most celebrated four-wheel-drive utility vehicles of all time, the 1/4-Ton 4x4 Truck (also known as the “Jeep”) made its debut in 1941. Powered by the popular 4-cylinder Willys L134 “Go Devil” engine, the Jeep was an instant success with soldiers. Soon, Willys-Overland was unable to keep up with demand, so Ford® was hired to pick up the slack. By WWII’s end, nearly 648,000 Jeeps were produced, over 277,000 of which were built by Ford. Kit features a detailed M2 machine gun and decals for four U.S.A. Jeeps. 556351

Minicraft® Models 1/48 Scale XF-5 Skyrocket Extremely experimental, highly influential. Developed for the U.S. Navy, the XF-5 Skyrocket was designed to be the first twin-engine fighter to operate from the deck of an aircraft carrier. The project appeared to be cursed from the very first prototype, which was plagued with overheating engines and malfunctioning landing gear. While extensive repairs and modifications didn’t stop the project from being cancelled, it did influence later aircraft such as the F-7 Tigercat. Kit features recessed panel lines, detailed engines, a choice of nose designs for early and late-model XF-5 aircraft, plus new decal markings. 11660

Kit features a detailed engine and cockpit interior, as well as new decals with U.S. and Canadian registration markings. 11662
