I'm still really enjoying this little Turnigy Truck. Sure, parts break now and then but I'm pretty sure that's the case for most R/C trucks anyways. It handles the snow particularly well, especially today after a light snow fell on freshly frozen streets. What a blast!

Here I am trying out my FBL100 in a confined space - my backyard! I managed to get in inverted fairly easily, and did some light yardwork with it too. Be sure to watch to the end to see the crashes!

I picked up one of these little planes to toss in the back of the car. What a great little flyer! The AS3X system provides great stability and allows the plane to fly in the wind as well as a bit of 3D capability.

You don't see it in this video, but my rudder servo failed on the first flight. Apparently there was a bad batch of "bricks" installed in some of these models. The nice thing about Horizon Hobby products is the first class customer service - they sent me a new brick no charge which I was able to replace myself.

The RTR Impulse 26 is a great little boat - but it's a bit pokey for my tastes. I did a little research and found a suitable 3S power combo - the Turnigy ADS400L 3700kv motor driven by the Birdie 70A Boat ESC.

What a difference the brushless power makes! I recorded a 49km/h top speed (around 30mph) which made the boat a real blast. I was impressed with the hull's stability as well. Even in the mild chop it held pretty steady.

I was pretty happy with the 70A Birdie ESC, except there was no reverse! Not much need for it at these speeds however.
