On Thursday, August 16, 2007 HobbyTron.com was highlighted on the FOX 13 News program Good Day Utah. We were up at the ModelPort just east of the Salt Lake City International Airport. The ModelPort is a place that people can go to fly their model airplanes and helicopters. We were accompanied by about 30 other hobby airplane enthusiasts.
All of the planes that they flew were ranging from a few hundred dollars, to $10,000 with the average around a thousand dollars or so.Most people who have had a fascination with flying aren’t able to jump in at that level so that is where we come in. HobbyTron.com is the affordable option for the beginning to intermediate hobby enthusiast. Our planes and helicopters begin at the $20 range and go up to the $200-$300 range. We talked about the many indoor options that we have for the home or office.
Some of the aircraft that we highlighted on the air were as follows: The Palm Z, The Rookie, and The Hughes Mini Helicopter. The Palm Z is the hottest new toy for the holiday season this year. It is an indoor plane that will fly for over 5 minutes. It is slow moving, nearly unbreakable, and has the ability to maneuver around the office or the crowded living room. The Rookie is a long time favorite for its superb stability and ability to fly in small tight places. It will fly outside, but remember as with all indoor aircraft, they will not fly as well outside, especially if there is any wind. As you could see on the video from the news show which we will be putting up as soon as we are sent our copy. The Hughes Mini Helicopter is always a favorite because it is so durable and you can fly up to three at a time (Just as you can with the Palm Z).
We also had three other planes on display that were a little higher end. They are as follows: The Cessna 182, The Hybrid Air, and The Daredevil. If you were watching the news, the Cessna was the airplane that was wrecked twice while on the air, and then it still flew!!! It is one of our most popular options as you can choose between a 3CH and 4CH option depending on your skill level. The Hybrid Air actually takes off from water, and the Daredevil is our stunt bi-plane. These are both 4CH planes and come in at a very modest price tag.
