HeliCommand becomes bavarianDEMON
The world-famous HeliCommand series is getting a new brand look .This is due to new products, new target markets, a new firmware and new ideas, which are aimed at offering even more service, flight fun and performance: since the 13th of March, under the name of "bavarianDEMON", a brand new accent enhanced the aerial RC model world. And, with it, a continually growing product range, with even more intelligent technology, for even more flight fun and safety. The start formation is constituted by 3 flybarless systems, tailored to satisfy the different demands and abilities of the RC heli pilots, as well as an innovative and revolutionary stabilizing system for fix wing models. As with HeliCommand, it is from CAPTRON and thus still made entirely in Bavaria, Germany. The new product labels already allow the assumption that the best of HeliCommand will live on in the bavarianDEMON products: the flybaress systems 3X, 3SX and RIGID V.2 are rightly reminiscent of their predecessors ‚Äď because all features have been transferred, even if the look and firmware have been face-lifted, and further optimisations are still to follow. With the bavarianDEMON CORTEX, the brandnew stabilisation system for fix wing models, comes not alone a revolutionary new product, but likewise the main reason of renaming the HeliCommand.
The 13th of March 2013 was the date for the official international launch of brand and product line. The products will be presented at www.bavarianDEMON.com, on a new, impressive service and infotainment website with more than 60 videos, offering an innovative design and plenty of information. In addition, these products will soon be available worldwide, from a network of constantly growing and carefully selected retail partners.
In the meantime, you can prepare yourself and gain a first impression on Facebook and YouTube, or you can visit our compact online preview at bavarianDEMON.com.
We wish you a demonically good and safe flight.

HeliCommand has optimised its product range !
From November 2012 the following changes will take effect:
The HC3-Xtreme high-performance FBL system will replace its little brother, the HC3-Xbase, which has been discontinued. The new retail price for the HC3-Xtreme will be reduced to US$249.00.
The new HeliCommand X-series now contains the HC3-Xtreme as a pure FBL system and the HC3-SX, now US$499.-, with its additional rescue modes as top-end system.
The M-series will be reduced to one system, the new HC Rigid V.2, and the HC-3A and HC-3D are discontinued.
The new HC Rigid V.2 includes an improved horizon, optimized optical position hold as well as a further improved tail gyro function. Retail price has been reduced to US$439.00. The manufacturer can update earlier Rigid systems to V.2 and upgrades from 3A/3D to the Rigid V.2 will remain available.
The customer's advantage is a better overview of the product range, leading to an easier choice of the right system for his needs.
And the winner is...
HeliCommand is proud to announce the official result of the 2012 IRCHA SpeedCup:
Team SFR took the top speed honors, winning the $1000 cash prize sponsored by HeliCommand.
The average winning speed was 144.3 MPH with the fastest downwind pass set at over 150 MPH.
The team was represented by Pilot Scott Yow and lead fabricator Rick Jow.
Rick hand built the "SFR" fuselage to fit Henseleit TDR mechanics.
The power system is a custom Scorpion 4535 motor and YGE 320 ESC powered by 14s.
Congratulations, guys. Great job. Hopefully we'll see you again¬†next year :)
