    Thanks bro :respect: , it was fun mak'n them :toast:

    Edit: lol, posted before I was finished lol

    yeah, it's asweet piece of alum no doubt :D

    Your revo is look'n crazy man

    that cage should help alot, gonna protect your gear and stiff'n up the chassis :toast


    your diff setup it sweet, can't wait to see how it performs

    something I noticed is the pillow ball dust boots work great for covering the carb on my picco, a lil bolt in the hole and it seals up tight :)

    you offered, so I'm ask'n ... what have ya done to them?

    I'm wondering what the truggy will be like next year

    thanks for shar'n your pics :respect:





    I toy'd with the idea of a throttle cable linkage but now I'm leaning more towards positioning the speed servo beside the mill

    Yep, starting to feel a lot more comfortable flying it now. I'm saving for a new engine though, need MOAR power!

    I've also signed up for an aerobatics competition in september so need to step it up a gear.

    Still have not really got back into planes, but @AthlonX2 rekindled my love for RC.

    Now I have four 4X4 10th scaler SCT style trucks, an 8th scale 4X4 Monster truck, and then I have two smaller choppers and a larger one.

    This thread is super old, but some hobbies never die!

    I got into short course racing at the local RC track but then I moved an hour away, so I haven't done much in a while in terms of RC.

    From a recent RC jet rally I went to at Sanford, ME, most ground RC these days seems to have morphed to batteries and electric motors. And how about UAV's?

    Cool Thread. I have flown RC Helis for about 8 years and have recently got into Quad and Multirotor FPV. I can get pretty acrobatic with the heli's and I really enjoy the super fast low flight FPV quad racing. It's like jet bike racing in starwars on endor. lol.

    I fly with a Spectrum DX8 for my choppers and have a - Blade MSR, Blade MSR x, Blade NCPx and Blade 450 3d and an older ThunderTiger Raptor.

    I have a Walkara Tali H500 hexacopter using the Devo F12e controller and Skyzone FPV Goggles with custom antenna and also a Blackout Carbon Quad all custom built which I also fly with the DX8 and the Skyzone goggles.

    Fun stuff!
