29-24163-PrimaryImage.image.jpgLight, sturdy, and easy to fly are the key features most people look for when they start searching for an RC plane, and the LiteHawk Zoom fits the bill perfectly.

 

There’s a lot of power under the hood of the LiteHawk Zoom. Brushless Motor Technology gives you the juice to take flight, Carbon Reinforced Links create a solid little plane without adding weight, and Detachable Landing Gear is perfect for taking off or landing on rough surfaces. And even though it’s created from foam, the LiteHawk feels super sturdy.

It's time to level up to the Traxxas Slash 4X4

10215165.jpgIf you’re anything like me, you’ve owned a few RC cars in your time. In my house, we’ve run through everything from cars to planes and helicopters, and the one thing I can count on for sure is that they won’t last. The run-of-the mill, built-to-the-usual specs RC vehicle can’t stand up to the use and loving abuse from a family of boys who just want to go bigger, farther, and faster.

 

But the Traxxas Slash 4X4 isn’t a run-of-the mill, built-to-the-usual specs type of RC vehicle. It flies across the grass, speeds across the pavement, and rips up the brush no matter where you put it. With an all-new rigid chassis that’s smooth underneath, it has a high ground clearance to avoid snags and tangles in tall grass and it will bounce back and keep going, no matter how high or fast it goes.  It even has waterproof components like the electronic speed control, receiver box, and high-torque digital steering servo, so you can rip through puddles or take it out in the rain.

Top 5 Apps for Elementary School Kids

apps-for-kids.jpegIt’s no secret that kids these days are far more technologically advanced than their parents were when they were pre-teens. I mean, let’s be honest … in the early 1980’s the most technologically advanced gadget at our disposal was an Atari. And as cool as Q-Bert was at the time, it’s no iPad. Kids these days are growing up in a society where the world is really just a tap and a swipe away. And while there are myriad apps that are, well, let’s just say “unsuitable” for elementary aged kids, there are a just as many that provide inspiration, education, and engagement for eager young minds. And no, I’m not talking about Angry Birds.

airplay-logo.jpegWhen it comes to consumer electronics, Apple is one of the leading brands on the innovation front - you have to admit that products like the iPod and iPad have been pretty darn cutting edge. I mean, seriously, five years ago, I don’t think any of us would have imagined we would be able to swipe the surface of our phones to answer a call, check email, and route our road trips via an integrated GPS.  

 

Surprisingly though, there is one Apple technology that many people haven’t heard much about – Apple AirPlay. Released alongside Apple’s iOS 4.2, AirPlay allows users of multiple Apple products to stream media wirelessly from one product on another. Let’s illustrate, shall we?
