We gots mad props!

Our propellers section has expanded recently with a new shipment of just under 4000 propellers from Gemfan!

We've now got the 3 bladed 5030's in all colours available.
Bullnose is now in stock in 5045 and 6040
For your little 180's we also have 4045's
A massive re-supply of the ever popular 2 bladed 5030's
And a decent supply of 5040's for you blokes wanting a little more out of your 3s setups

I've recently tested the 5045 bullnose and am delighted with the punch and performance. I've been comparing them to HQ and DAL 5045 Bullnose. They are defeinitely stronger than the HQ's in terms of not shattering in a crash, but the DAL's are a bit tougher again - that said. I've managed to have a few of these DAL props go completely unbalanced after a few hits with obstacles to the point where I had to replace them anyway (got massive shakes yo). I'm finding the Gemfan's are great balance between performance, efficiency, cost and strength and will switch over to these once I've run out of my other bullnose props.

Also, just to clarify. All our Gemfan props come in packets of 4. They are all either CCW or CW. The pictures against those products are for illustrative purposes only, aint nobody got time to take their own photos... well, I sure don't.

Got a Blackout Mini Quad? want some sick lad RGB LEDs? Check it.

Old mate has come up with a nice 3D Printed bracket to hold 2x RGB LED bars together for connecting into Cleanflight on his Mini Quads.

Once setup, it can be configured to set the LED's to any colour you desire, as well as show indicators, arm/disarm as well as throttle response and warning lights (if you desire).

Here is a link to the complete kit all ready to go. All you need to do is install the bracket in the rear of your quad and hook up the servo connector to your flight controller. We suggest getting a female servo connector hooked up to your flight controller so you can easily remove and replace the LEDs and bracket in the future. However, its up to you, if you want to solder the wires straight to your board, go for it son.

Here's a picture of mine setup on my Blackout.

The end two LEDs are to show my arm state (armed / disarmed) and I have just a straight static colour across the rest of the strip. It makes flying with friends much more fun as its easier to spot me in a forrest or carpark and hunt me down.

We currently have the full kit available now, we will be offering the LED strips as well as the 3D printed bracket as separate items later in the week.

New Gaui parts for the X5

Not sure if anyone has noticed yet, but we've got some of the new Gaui X5 upgrade parts available now.

The most notable parts are the Carbon Fiber tail booms. Available in red, yellow and green

Oh-so sexy!

There's also the NX4 / X4 II boom extension parts, they extend your boom to comfortably run 475mm blades (possibly bigger if you're a risk taker). You'll find them under their designated areas.

As usual, all our new stuff can be found under our new bits section.

Happy flying!

ImmersionRC Vortex has arrived!

We recently received a shipment from ImmersionRC containing the new Vortex Mini Race Quad. We've had a play with them already and reckon it is all that and a bag of potato chips. The OSD, setup and tunability of this thing is second to none.

We also happen to have one left in stock.

This is the latest version equipped with LED saving metal brackets, ImmersionRC branded T-motors and the Fat Shark 700TVL camera.

Get into it son!

Farewell Shannon

Our order dispatcher Shannon has recently left RCBits to pursue other job opportunties. This leaves us with big shoes to fill moving forward but we would like to assure all of you that we will continue to strive to provide the best level of service we can.

We would like to thank Shannon for all her hard work over the past few years and we will miss her greatly, we wish her all the best in her future endeavours. If you have an outstanding order and have been dealing with her via email directly, please ensure you CC in our main email address ( to ensure your matter is able to be picked up by one of the others in the team.

Shannon's departure will lead to a change in our shipping timeframe which we will update on our About us page shortly.

All orders will now be packed each evening and dispatched the following morning. There is no explicit cut-off time with this new arrangement. We will simply do our best to get your order out the door as soon as possible.

If you have any questions please feel free to swing us an email.

No phone bro.

Just a short message to let you all know that we've killed off our phoneline. Please use email as the primary method of contact for the time being. We will be getting a new number in the future (once I get around to setting it up) and will update the contact details when it is working.

May Megasale!

We're in need of some more space in the warehouse and with the EOFY coming up next month, we thought it would be a great opportunity to have a big sale!

There are some HUGE discounts with this one. Let's go through this step by step because even I find it somewhat overwhelming.

Firstly.. Everything is discounted at least ~10% (there's only a handful of items that aren't)
This includes: Byron Fuels, Gaui, Gryphon, SwitchGlo, ImmersionRC, FatShark and so on (everythinggggg)


- All SAB parts are discounted ~20%
- All Edge Rotor Blades ~25% off
- All Cyclone Main and Tail Blades ~15-25% off
- All Halo Blades are also ~15% off
- All Lynx Products are ~25-35% off
- All RC Logger products are 15-40% off
- All RC Screwz are down by about 20-30%
- All Scorpion products are about 30% off too!
- There's 20% off all KDE Direct
- 35% off all KBDD too!
- Team Blacksheep products is down by about 10-25%

We also have almost 1,000 different products which are all marked down to $1. Yes - ONE DOLLAR! Here's what's falls into that basket:

- All remaining Outrage parts
- All Mikado parts
- All Minature Aircraft parts
- All Beam 450 / 600 parts
- All PureTech Straps
- All Hard One Pinions
- Heaps of various random bling and upgrades
- All NextD Rave 450 parts

So there should be something for everyone in that list. Keep in mind that the sale will go until approximately the 1st of July. The sale applies to IN STOCK items only. We will NOT be taking any back orders for products, so it's first in best dressed. Also, whilst we try to maintain a pretty accurate online inventory, stock errors will pop up from time to time. So if Shannon emails you to tell you that that wicked velcro strap you ordered for $1 isn't in stock, then sorry bro :(

Ok, I think I've covered everything. Feel free to shoot me an email if I've horribly messed up something. Or don't... whatever.

Gaui X5 FORMULA Combo Deal!

We've got a great combo package on offer for the Gaui X5 FORMULA heli right now.

For $689 you get the X5 kit, the monster power Scorpion motor and the appropriate pinion. You basically get the motor and pinion for $44 on top of the kit price!

Click the below picture to be taken to the product. The Gaui X5 is arguably the most popular electronic helicopter from Gaui and if you take a look at some of the videos out there it is easy to see why!

As usual, this is a limited time offer. Once sold out, that's it!
