OfficinaRC universal LCG battery plate

OfficinaRC have announce the release of their new LCG universal battery plate, designed to get the most out of the new generation of LiPo batteries. With especially LCG batteries becoming lighter, it is often necessary to add weight to the battery side of the chassis in order to achieve a correct 50/50 left to right weight bias. OfficinaRC’s new 0.6mm brass battery plate weighs in at 32g, allowing to add substantial weight without loosing the advantages of LCG battery packs. The plate can be fixed directly to the chassis or battery, using optional ultra thin tape.

Wild Turbo Fan Blow Harder 30mm fan

Wild Turbo Fan have introduced their new Blow Harder 30mm fan unit. The 12mm thick fan features an industry first nine exhaust fins design which generates the twisting wind pattern for focused air flow, hence more air to cool the object. With the nine exhaust fins design the support structure between the case and the core has been increased, and together with thicker side walls the case is much stronger compared to a standard 30mm fan. A round lip is also moulded into the intake side of the fan to further smooth out air flow. Last but not least, all the fan unit is manufactured with all new electronics.
