East R/C Super Specials and Blowouts!!

East R/C Super Specials and Blowouts!!- East R/C is holding a blowout on select aircraft while inventories last, to make room for loads of new goodies and unique products we are manufactuing. Some of these large items (especially the 50cc & 100cc kits) are subject to additional shipping costs due to their size.

This sale will be from 9/25/08 through 10/31/08 and all airplanes on sale are in limited quantities and will not be available for a while once they are gone, with the exception of the Lucky 13, Telemasters & Cularis.

We will probably get more of these items next year, we're negotiating with the manufacturer now...but the prices will surely be a lot higher. We're moving some of these large and overstocked items to make room for a bunch of new goodies that we're building and are coming in very soon.

There are threads online about this sale at:

A total of 24 items will be on sale, 3 different items each hour with a few surprises in between. You will have to refresh your page once we switch each new batch of sale items out. We will also have select items on sale all day during the event. We will be adding lots of new parts to the site over the weekend, so keep an eye out. We have not decided on what items will be on sale, SO TELL US WHAT YOU WANT on the RCGroups thead or to!

We will begin at 9 a.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, and run until 5 p.m. Eastern Time Tuesday.
We will hold all online orders until the end of the day, so if you submit multiple orders, they will be combined.

For our local customers: We will have a list of all sale items printed up, so that you can also take advantage of the sale!

NEXT - Two HOT New East RC Exclusives are now in stock and ready to ship!!! They are:

- SLEDG: ERC's SLEDG is one of the best flying foamys you can get your hands on! It's 48" wingspan and light weight construction give it an astronomically low wing loading. IT FLOATS. Super slow-Mo 3D, or can handle both ends of the spectrum with ease. Lots of carbon fiber throughout and loaded with the best brand-name hardware.

- Lucky 13: ERC's Lucky 13 was designed and tested over a 5 year span to be one of the best flying sport models available today! It keeps going where other sport models drop off. Not only does it handle like a trainer, but it can really perform. Knife edge, spins, hammerheads, stall turns, loops, flat turns, flat spins, wild knife edge spins, inverted flight, snaps, lomcevaks and more are all part of the Lucky 13's vocabulary. A .61 is perfect for unlimited vertical on this very capable model. The large wing area and light wing loading make this airplane a breeze to land.

You can check these two new Exclusive items out, along with thousands of other items at our website at Don't forget, DO NOT MISS the awesome deals that will be going on during our [DAY AFTER LABOR DAY SALE]!

East R/C Sledg is ready to ship!!

SLEDG - An EAST R/C Exclusive!

ERC's SLEDG is one of the best flying foamys you can get your hands on! It's 48" wingspan and light weight construction give it an astronomically low wing loading. IT FLOATS. Super slow-Mo 3D, or ballistic. It can handle both ends of the spectrum with ease.

Lots of carbon fiber through out and loaded with the best hardware available. We also include a full roll of 3M Blenderm for hinging the control surfaces. The model includes ALL the hardware you need. We didn't skimp in this area and there is no need for additional parts.

Build it with the included components and drop in your power plant and radio gear, then rock on with it. Landing gear components included. The Sledg is comprised of 6mm Depron CNC cut parts, Light Ply firewall, carbon fiber strip for the leading edge & trailing edges, carbon fiber wing spar, carbon fiber elevator and rudder pushrod tubes with wire ends, aileron linkages, tail skid, landing gear wire, light weight wheels, wheel collars, light ply landing gear plates and dowel peg retainers, square carbon fiber landing gear blocks, razor control horns, "L" bend keepers, quick connectors for linkages, velcro for electronic components mounting, 3M Blenderm for surface hinging and instruction manual! We recommend using good servos for this airplane. HS-55 could be used, as we have, but you have to watch your speed and how hard you fly it. We have been flying the Sledg with Hitec HS-65mg's & HS-82mg's with excellent results!

East R/C Street Party & Open House, July 26th!

East R/C & Scootworks is planning an Open House, Street Party, and Ribbon Cutting for Saturday July 26th (rain date the following Saturday, August 2nd). This is to celebrate many things...

1- The New 3000 ft East R/C Showroom is finally under renovation, and we'll be in it by that time. It's a great opportunity for us to show off the new facility, and have a grand opening for the business. It has been operating in cramped quarters within Scootworks, and will finally be able to spread it's wings.

2- It has now been 10 years since the first Scootworks part was designed, manufactured, and marketed by us. We're now up to over 680 Scootworks components manufactured by's been a long trip, and it's time to have a 10th Anniversary Party.

3- We're celebrating our newest acquisition and expansion of our CNC Machine Shop Operations. It may not sound like much, but our recent facility and equipment procurement now makes us the largest Independent Metric Motorcycle Company in the US. It obviously doesn't take much to earn that crown, but it's ours :-) . Like I said, it's been a long hard road, and we're ready to party!

Like before, we're going to close the street and bring in vendors from around the state, food (lots more of this!), music, a bike show, Tattoo Shop, Airbrush artists, photography studio, bike wash, burnout pit, and more. There will be demos of R/C Airplanes and Helicopters. Everything in the house will be marked down more than ever, and there will be tours of East R/C, our new paint shop, metal fabrications, service, manufacturing, shipping/receiving, and other facets of the company. There is also going to be a ribbon cutting for East R/C.

Help us spread the word... July 26th is the day, from 9am-4pm, the place for fun is East R/C & Scootworks in Zebulon. You can find directions to us from the LH menu item labeled [Retail Store & Events] at
Hope to see y'all there!

East R/C Lucky 13

East R/C Lucky 13 - The new Lucky 13 pre-production prototypes are in, and we're buildingthose to fly/show. The first gen, though it was close to what we wanted, was not the final version. Some of you may have seen it taking a beating out at the RDRC field recently. The final pre-production version has most of the changes we wanted implemented, so it won't be long before the production version of this sport airplane is available. We're expecting to have them ready for sale by Early march, and will be unveiling one at the SEFF show May 1-4 in Georgia. You can check out the ERC Lucky-13 online at:
