So, I finally decided that I was going to get back into R/C trucks. But, what would I do with only about $200 lying around, with R/C trucks ranging from $300-$600 plus batteries and tools?! I saw Hobby King's Turnigy 1/16 Buggy and figured that I'd pick up not one, but two, of those. I decided on buying two because I'll have the extra parts that would take forever to ship from Hong Kong if I broke something, and they were so cheap I couldn't resist. I used to have a Traxxas 1/16 Brushless Mini E-Revo, but that's sold. I'll have to see how this one compares to my old MERV as I remember it. When everything comes in, I will post videos about the truck and driving videos, too. Please subscribe to my channel at:

if you'd like to be notified of when these videos come out!

So, here's a list of what I ordered. Click on an item to go to Hobby King's page on it.

2 x Turnigy 1/16 Brushless Buggies (4WD)

1 x Hobby King GT-2 2ch Ground TX/RX

2 x Zippy 1300 mAH 2S 20C Li-Po Battery Packs

1 x Li-Po Battery Voltage Display (2S-6S)

1 x Long Shaft 1.5mm Hex Screwdriver

1 x 2mm Hex Screwdriver

1 x 2.5mm Hex Screwdriver

Here's a picture of the buggy. Looks pretty sweet to me.

Has anybody had this plane before, and what do you think of it? I'm interested in buying it but don't know if it's good or not out of the box.

I originally sold all my R/C airplane stuff thinking of getting into R/C trucks (actually some of it and 1 non-R/C item is still for sale), but now I'm thinking of getting back into helicopters. I just need something enjoyable and fun to do around the house during summer. What do you think? Should I buy a R/C helicopter?

The video is pretty much just a joke and an update to what I might be doing in R/C.

I think it's a sign... (0 min 31 sec)


Please subscribe!

Thanks!

I had some extra unused footage lying around of my Tuff Trainer... so I figured I'd put some music to it and create a video. FULL 1080p!!!!!

My brother is still learning how to film the plane right... so sorry about some of the shaky parts in the video.
