You and I are a lot alike. I fly helis. I can't get my kids or grandkids to have any interest in them. But, I rebuilt an old RC10 buggy and they love it. I was going to buy the Slash 4 x 4, but it doesn't handle grass very well (my lawn is cut to 3 1/2"). So I decided on the Stampede VXL. Same running gear as the Slash but a lot bigger tires and more ground clearance. If I like the Stampede (picking it up tomorrow) I'll buy one or two more to race around the yard. They are a damn sight cheaper than crashing helis. I just had a simple heli crash yesterday. A gust of wind caught it while I was landing on the cement driveway and tipped it over. It was maybe 6 to 8 inches off the ground when it tipped. $60 damage. I also ran the RC10 full speed into a stone wall. No damage.
