The MONTHLY SALE for JANUARY will go ahead unaffected by the xmas break. Regular customers will be aware that this is not our annual sale which is scheduled for late January - February, but don't forget that due to the regular rolling monthly sale, there will still be fresh price cuts on selected products in the days immediately following the xmas break. The  neverending monthly sale can be seen here:   .

The Xmas opening times are now added to the  home page here: Home

We are back in the flying season and the new additions to the ARF electric range from Seagull are coming in every weekSeagull Electric ARF Planes.
Two new kit models in the electric side of things are sure to make a stir. these are Easy 400 and The Big Easy two new highwing trainer models for DIY model builders. They have good flight characteristics, though the Big easy is more advanced than it's smaller sister plane. If you like building in the evenings or when it's too rainy/cold/windy to fly outside, then these might well be worth a look.

BARGAIN ZONE went online today. Where do the best RC model deals go ... maybe you should have a look: Go to www.greenhobbymodel.com Bargain Zone

Glowplug News: Ever since glow engine aeromodelling moved into aerobatic flight, modellers have had the problem of starting inverted 2-stroke engines, where the liquid fuel can fall into the glowplug below and put the element out. The new 3D plug technology developed by Model Technics eliminates this. If you have an inverted 2-stroke engine, or like to fly inverted, get a MT 3D Glowplug next time and try it. You'll be impressed. It's developed with the same research that produced the Supercat 4-stroke glowplugs which dominated completely over the older 4-stroke plug types since their introduction last year.

We are now into the flying season and the latest models are the new ARF electric range from Seagull. Seagull have always produced high quality glow engine model planes, and last year they introduced their electrics, built to the same standards of quality. these are the same size as the largest of the foamie models. But the resemblance ends there, because the new Seagulls are built up wood construction, and have tighter airframes with less flex than any foamie can ever achieve. They are exceptionally good looking model planes. A 600 size brushless motor or equivalent outrunner fits. Take a look at the electric power ARF Decathlon, Pilatus PC-9, Extra 300S  and others here Seagull Electric ARF Planes.

The Sale is back again!  .  Also new pictures added to the website.
We were surprised to see the complete clearout of ARF glowfuel engine model planes reduced in the sale at such an early stage. Many customers missed the bus so to speak, and the stuff they were looking for was cleared in under 5 days. So there will be a Nitro Aircraft Top Up Sale. More mainstream models, not end of line stuff, I mean our top selling models, will be received in a couple of days. They will go into the sale as they arrive. Some will have engine deals that can be availed of. Don't delay this time !

It's train set time. Check out the TT model railway starter sets in our model trains & railway dept. Look out for our news notice in the new year when the new landscaping "All in one" sets arrive.

Several new models are now in our stocks. The successful Aeronaut Rocky electric trainer now has an extra large size cousin called Aero-Maxx. This is a quick build kit for first timers where the makers have done the wing structures thus removing the most difficult part, but still leaving plenty of interesting construction for the new aero modeller to do before flying this model. Aero-Maxx is big for an electric trainer, having a 1800mm wingspan allowing good visibility at the great distances it can fly to.

More new items, in electric planes there is the Eurofighter Typhoon in two versions. At a lower cost the prop Eurofighter EF-2000 and at a higher cost the twin EDF Eurofighter. Servos, speed controller(s) and brushless motors are included and already fitted in these models which makes them a very good value.  There is also a nice new scale slowfly oldtimer model called Skeeto SA-8 which was the first ever microlight. This was designed and flown by Raymond Stits in the US using many engines. Stits was an expert in low power, low fuel consumption  planes. His Skeeto even test flew with outboard engines for power! The original is on show at Oshkosh EAA museum. We have the model, it's scale, and it's ARF, and it's here at  www.GreenHobbyModel.com.

Added new items, the new Zenith Outrunner Brushless Motors and matching speed controllers at better lower prices. Motor mounts, plugs and fittings included free. Also we expanded our servo extension lead range, so everything is available in standard PVC tri-cable with black servo plugs. They are also available in better quality silicone twisted (anti interference measure) tri-cable with positive locking gold pin blue servo plugs.
Have you seen the new Carson Tyrann Helicopter yet? It's an aerobatic heli at a very good price, well worth looking at one close up.

We have flown the Carson Bluster 400 3D for a while now, and there is only one thing we wanted ... more power !  The rotor head is tight enough to deliver a fine performance when using the more efficient motors for power, so the brushless Twister 3D arrives for September. 

The new FAQ section to the website, for troubleshooting problems has turned out a great success - so more problems and their solutions are added.
The monthly clearout sale is now set up, every 4 weeks new items will be added. We used to have a clearout sale for end of line items only, but from now on there will be "overstocked" items added to this. This means that some models may make it into the sale for no other reason than we want a lower stock level for that particular month. the accountants must be kept happy, and this provides an opportunity to pick up a desirable model for a knockdown price.
The Monthly Sale link is here .... 
A new helicopter has been added to the range available. This is Carson Bluster 400 3D fand it comes pre-built in a standard version with many possible performance upgrades available. We have tested Twisted 3D over the past few months and are happy that it is the best value for performance in "400" size helicopters. Which is why we have selected this particular one for our customers.

Carson Cars are beginning to arrive. We were impressed with these cars last year when we tried out our first ones. Now we have several combos due in in the coming weeks.

New MVVS engines added to our range. Results so far have been so good that we have decided to switch our support from Irvine engines to MVVS as our first choice of power with excellent reliability for customers. The value is simply better for power, price, and durability in our humble opinion. MVVS are ballraced, and spare parts cost less when damage is done in a crash. A better deal all round.

Testing our new website, the new version will be launched next week.

The new small size outrunner motors are in production. We have received two, (there is a waiting list for these). It is a 400 size motor that can do 15 amps on 7 cells. This makes it far more powerful than speed 400s for less weight and size than one. All 400 type models can take this motor, and will have huge power increases with e.g. an 8 x 6 prop instead of the speed 400 6 x 3 prop. The rough equivalent of a 40 trainer with engine running flat out (if you decided to fly with full throttle!) is a good comparison of a Pluton 400 Cub with this motor.

Norman took the newly arrived Pluton 400 Cub out for maiden flight testing today. For the misguided people, this electric model flew with engine on continuously for 25 minutes, while chasing glow (4-str) planes round the sky. The 2-str planes cannot match this type of electric model for duration any more.

Results ... brilliant. This is a mini version of a 40 size glow trainer, but done in electric with a motor that costs just 8 euros. However it does things the glow version cannot do , the micro wing servos allow both aileron to be raised together as spoiler airbrakes while still functioning as ailerons. The same feature allows both ailerons to be dropped, making them into flaperons and airbrakes.

Done as SPOILERONS we can slow down and descend faster while flying level, this is perfect for landings in strong headwinds where the plane doesn't want to come down due to its airspeed against the wind. HOWEVER if done as flaperons we can slow down but increase lift, now on still days we can slow down almost to a standstill before landing. We got it on video for the unbelievers, and the video shows the plane flying directly towards the cameraman, then slowing down and doing a spot landing right at his feet !

Limited run of Baja Beetle off-roaders back in stock , probably for the next 4 weeks.

The Heinkel Salamander jets are on the way. ARTF for a motor-fan unit that uses the DAISY nicad battery we all have. Arrival due in about 2 weeks now. Get a Daisy battery and 2 micro servos ready and earmark them for this.

New video in shop. We put the euro elec champs on computer file, nice highlight in the shop where a contestant rolls his car on a corner, lands on wheels, continues the race, and WINS !

Flying wing foamies arrived. These are motorized with aircraft, engine, gearbox and propeller all in the kit. Small size only 74 euros, large faster size 94 euros. Call in as we wont be selling these mail order due to demand from regular customers being almost matching our suppliers production limits.

M V V S engines are here. Ball raced, high compression, side or rear exhaust, aero, car and marine versions available. Also a Quickie 500 Race 40 size which has the race tuned pipe INCLUDED. Prices are good, we have committed to quantity for these and we will stick with them so spares are IN STOCK too. Throttling quality is better than IRVINE, absolute power output is about OX FX level, the engine is ballraced and only half the price of the OS. We have the standard mufflers in the box but tuned pipes are here and can be got on request.
