I love the classic Tamiya RC Car designs. I put together this Midnight Pumpkin with my son some time back, such a fun truck! I wrote a full build article on it here - http://thercgeek.com/2015/04/rc-cars...night-pumpkin/ I have a Wild Willy 2 waiting to be built once I can clear my bench a little bit.

This is an older video (circa 2007-2008ish) of my Thunder Tiger Sea Fury. The airplane was converted to electric swinging a 5-bladed prop which sounds awesome! My apologies for the heli noise near the end of the flight, it was a busy day at the field. The electric conversion is as follows:

Motor: NeuMotors 1515/2y with 6.7:1 gearbox
ESC: Castle Creations Phoenix 110HV
Battery: NeuEnergy 10s 5,000 mah Lithium Polymer
Propeller: Zinger 16x14 Custom 5-blade

This is an older video (circa 2006 I'd guess) of Corsair Nut's Thunder Tiger Bearcat electric conversion. The thunder tiger scale ARF's were such nice models! Too bad they're not readily available anymore.

Back in February, I had the amazing opportunity to take a ride in Ken Wagoner's P-51 "Lady Alice." Here's the video I put together from the experience...it was truly once in a lifetime! I wrote a full article about it here: http://thercgeek.com/2015/03/lady-alice-p-51-ride/
