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.
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:

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.
