Video from the record jump contest I attended. Multiple shots and some quad footage really gives you an idea of the distance a rc car can cover flying off a ramp when rc car guys really go big as well as the record breaking 262 foot jump.

As some of you know I help out with car and aircraft oriented stuff over at BigSquidRc when I can. This weekend I was able to witness a rc car record being smashed. Think of watching QQ or Andrew jesky flying for the first time when you were learning to fly planes and how much you were taken back by what you seen those guys do with rc planes. Even though I've run cars for years my jaw dropped and it was difficult to comprehend what I was seeing and filming as it happened. Hucking a rc car well beyond 200 feet and landing is something you just have to see to believe. To put it into perspective.. The Bigfoot monster truck set a record for jumping a bit over 200 feet and over a passenger jet. An rc car went well beyond that distance and could of easily cleared a 747's wingspan. Congratulations to Paul Bludgen from Midlothian IL on breaking the record. Video coming soon but for some pics and more info check out the write up at

Its that time of year out here so flying can be a challenge. Got some stuff for reviews and even though I enjoy testing stuff out winter makes it rough sometimes. Looking forward to some days in the 30s to really evaluate some aircraft and see how they perform at the flying field. Right now the ground is hard as a rock and its very cold out so im sticking to short hops in the yard with a trusty fire... And yes quads make good fire stokers but i'll try and stick to a 32cc leaf blower for keeping the logs nice and toasty .

Looking forward to some regular flying with the gimbal soon in more open area's but wanted to see how stable it keeps the camera during aggressive inputs to the quad. Currently snowing so will get more flights in when i can.
