Rusty

I was curious about that too Rusty... I think I remember the little Gasparin CO2 motors could get frost on them while running... (maybe I'm thinking of something else)

I think the Air Hogs model uses a PET tank... Remember the horror stories years back; of some modelers who were using soda bottles as tanks for their retracts' air supply? Like any pressure vessel; it'll explode if over-pressurized... with DISASTROUS RESULTS!!! I remember seeing a photo of a model that suffered this fate. There was literally nothing left of it... not to mention the danger involved with being right there next to it... when the shrapnel flies.

Horizon Hobby did put it a good way today in an email.

That means if you break it, you can fix it with genuine parts. So, that sinking feeling of breaking the remote control car you got for your birthday has been banished forever.

We aren't a toy company.

We sell the parts you need to keep you in the air, on the road and in the water. And that makes all the difference.
