As part of an initial launch with Maplin Electronics, the first four products brought into the UK marketplace have had a great response, with products selling out in Maplin stores.

High sales figures were helped by an appearance on Channel 5’s The Gadget Show Christmas special which featured two Air Combat helicopters, and gaining Gadget of the Week status in The Sun.

Carl England, international general manager at Propel, said: “Following a fantastic brand launch at the RAF museum, the great coverage we have received, and the products launching at Maplin, it’s great to see such strong sales throughout the Christmas period. We have had brilliant feedback about our products from customers, with many already enrolled in our exclusive Flight Club on our new website, which offers so many membership benefits, including free replacement parts. From this base, we are looking forward to continuing this success in 2015 as we launch more premium, innovative RC products into the UK market.”
