This happened quite a while ago, but I never compiled all my photos and the few videos that I took.

It's on, trinomials. And, of course, I squeezed in one Scout CX flight between this! Now that I'm done, it's time for more flying!

Couldn't create a full movie about it (that was the original plan), so I created a short movie.

I'm going to be creating a movie about the 1/16 Turnigy 4WD Brushless Buggy. Instead of creating 5 bashing videos of it in a row, I'm going to be focused on 1 big project, the movie. Here's the trailer for the production... I created lots of bashing videos last year within this same break, April vacation or spring break, same thing. If you'd like to be notified of videos with the 1/16 Turnigy Buggy, please subscribe to my channel!

In the video it says vacation is in 8 days... well, that was a while ago, so it's wrong now. The video was uploaded on the 5th.

Hey Everybody,

So... as normal, I can't make up my mind. After having (R/C) 4 planes, 1 car and 2 helicopters over the course of about 1 year, I now have ordered two more cars. All the planes are either non-working or have been sold to fund the cars, and 1 helicopter was parted out. The car was sold because it broke too easily and I couldn't keep buying more and more parts to keep it running. I have 1 ultra micro coaxial helicopter that still works - barely, though. In the near (or far) future I'm going to be making about $200 in which I'd like to spend on R/C, of course, basically my only hobby. But no matter how much research I do, I can NOT make up my mind. Seriously. I like aerobatics and flying - $200 will definitely not get me another good R/C car, and I won't need another one anyways, so it's between helicopters and airplanes. No boats because I don't want to have to go down to a lake every time I want to run one.

I'm both interested in 3D heli and plane flying - both of them seem like fun. I've had some collective pitch helicopter flying experience, so a mCPX would be ideal. However, helicopters are complex and can't handle crashes like planes do. (And you can't just glue them back together - ) But I do like the idea of being able to fly inside on rainy days. Also, helicopters are more expensive. Planes may or may not be better for me. I've had more R/C plane experience than helicopter experience and feel confident and skilled enough to either get a...Continue Reading

I finally got this helicopter to fly just like it used to last Christmas when my uncle gave it to my brother... but he's not really big into R/C, so he lets me use it because mine broke. Anyways, here's the video:

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)
