Latest Tamiya re-release Top Force 2017 47350
Posted on 8th February 2017

The latest announcement from Tamiya in 2017 is for the limited re-release of the Tamiya Top Force.

Tamiya Top Force re-release 47350

We are now taking orders on this item. Please be aware this is a limited run item.

The Top-Force is back! This is a limited-edition re-issue of the Top-Force (2005) model, with one minor change – different tires are now included.

The 4WD buggy Top Force was initially released in 1991, to celebrate the release of Tamiya’s 100th R/C car. Designers incorporated feedback and experience gained over the years to produce a purebred racer like no other! Designed to possess an ultra-low center of gravity, the Top Force sports a body that is both aerodynamic and cool to look at! The Top Force features front and rear sealed gearboxes, sandwiched between 2mm FRP plates for dependable durability. That style would later become a standard for R/C touring cars, demonstrating just how revolutionary Top Force was. Transmission system features a hard propeller shaft and front/ rear ball diff. Double wishbone suspension comes with 4 CVA shock dampers, and is designed for ultimate adjustability.


  • 1/10 scale shaft-driven 4WD R/C model assembly kit. Length: 400mm.
  • The distinctive Top-Force body and wing are molded in lightweight and durable polycarbonate. Marking stickers are included to decorate the body.
  • FRP double-deck chassis.
  • Shock damper stays are made from FRP and are used in conjunction with oil shock dampers and the 4-wheel independent double-wishbone suspension for superior handling.
  • White nylon star dish wheels are paired with square spike tires (Items 53084/53088).
  • Front and rear ball differentials, plus a rigid propeller shaft ensure that power from the rear-mounted transverse motor is transmitted smoothly to the wheels.
  • Includes 540-type brushed motor.
  • Requires 2-channel radio with ESC, 7.2volt battery with compatible charger, and PS paint to complete.
The new Chris Foss Wot4 Pro due in March
Posted on 8th February 2017

Coming in March 2017, the new Wot 4 Pro.  Designed by Chris Foss, who has given model flying one of the most successfull and recognisable designs, available at TJD Models - one of the UK's largest model shops.

New Chris Foss Wot4 Pro


The Wot4 is established as a versatile and capable sports model but there is a limit to what it is capable of without sacrificing durability and versatility. So to get the most from the Wot4 Airframe we have made this new 'Pro' version for pilots who want an uncompromised version of this classic. 

The ailerons, rudder and elevators have been increased in size for increased control authority. We have analysed the structure and removed weight wherever we can, this includes a built-up fin and tailplane, lightened wing, lightened fuselage and even lightening holes in the undercarriage. 

To complement this new structure, we are including a special edition Irvine .39 in the kit as the perfect match of power to weight.

New Spektrum DX6e Coming Soon
Posted on 10th September 2016

Being on a budget doesn’t have to mean you have to settle for less than the best. The Spektrum DX6e gives you the unbeatable response of DSMX® technology, the simplicity of AirWare™ programming software and many other features you can’t find on other “budget” radios.

Spektrum DX6E with AR610 Receiver - SPM6650EU

Spektrum DX6E Transmitter only - SPMR6650EU

250-Model Memory The enormous capacity of the DX6e’s on-board memory means you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card. The model memory menu is easy to navigate too. Only memory slots with model settings saved to them will appear. You won't have to scroll through empty slots or move models around if one is deleted.

Built-In Telemetry The built-in telemetry feature can give you real-time information on things like battery voltage, signal quality, motor temperature and more.* You can also program alerts that let you know when specific telemetry values reach or exceed limits you define. *Requires telemetry sensors and a telemetry-enabled receiver. Wireless Trainer Link The wireless trainer link gives instructors the option to wirelessly ''buddy box'' with another DSMX/DSM2® transmitter. Once bound to another transmitter, ModelMatch™ technology will allow the DX6e to re-link without having to go through the bind process again. Patent-Pending Gimbal Design with Spring Configuration Switch The DX6e’s patent-pending gimbal design lets you change gimbal spring configurations simply by moving a slider switch on the back of the transmitter. No tools are required. Just select the spring configuration that matches the mode you are using and model type you are flying. That’s it. There are four spring configurations to choose from: • Normal Throttle for Modes 2 and 4 (Air, Heli and Sailplane Model Types) • Spring-Centered Throttle for Modes 2 and 4 (Multirotor Model Type) • Spring-Centered Throttle for Modes 1 and 3 (Multirotor Model Type) • Normal Throttle for Modes 1 and 3 (Air, Heli and Sailplane Model Types) The slider switch is protected by a hinged cover that prevents you from accidentally changing spring configurations in flight.
