    Question Traxxas Planes

    Will Traxxas ever make a plane branch? That would be nice. I rather buy from Traxxas than other places for my planes? Post opinions and anyone who knows anything plz speak up...

    Thanks

    they have buggies stadium trucks, trucks on and off road, boats. Now they need the 1/8 models, and 1/18 models, big block engines, hovercrafts, and planes...

    Iím not Traxxas bashing but it would be nice if they had some more models like the Spirit, more affordable stuff too...

    I agree they need more models but the models they have are the better than all other companies trucks and cars, I think they should make a mini-maxx I would buy that, and a new line of on-road cars that run on nitro all with the 2.5r in them.

    if traxxas starts making planes, i see the c/s getting many calls along the lines of

    "i just bought my son a traxxas plane, and he crashed it into my new car. i would appreciate it if you would fix both the plane, and the large dent in my car....class action law suit....bbb...."


    most relilistly, i see traxxas continuning the nitro rtr lines. i don't see them getting into high end 1/8th, or getting into planes.

    Wouldn't putting a disclaimer on the box take care of that? Something along the lines of:

    "Controlling the Remote Controlled Plane is your responsibility. Traxxas assumes no responsibilty for any damages caused to and/or by this product..."

    See where I'm going with that? Somewhere along the line I see Traxxas taking flight (No pun intended). But just not yet.

    fwiw, think about how traxxas targets for their cars. rtr, ez-start, now the tires even come pre-glued...

    they could put all the disclamers they want(i'm sure they have a great team of lawyers), they're still going to get a billion calls about quality/breaking parts/crashing...

    I don't believe Traxxas will get into the flying branch of RC either,buy i do believe they will come out with a 1/18th fairly soon(i hope!!)They are becoming very popular and are great fun.
    To upgrade or not to upgrade,is that even a question?
