Out Of Moth Balls

Well guys, last weekend I broke my old Springer out of Moth Balls and gave it the bath tub test. The first time out, it took on half the water in Hanson Dam. In fact the water level dropped about a foot as my Springer limped back to the dock. We made a few modifications and it will soon be showing up at the Pond for another sea going test, I mean lake test... LOL

Thanks Tom, I'll have to check them a little closer. I may have used too much solder and the Tug is listing too much....

Great report as always Rick. Miss playing in the water.

Been playing in the dirt, crawling, and filming with my 350QX a lot lately. Here is my most recent video. I need an FPV system or a set of binoculars, lol.

Hope to see you soon!

Been missing you guys. I came out last weekend and theres was a running event or something. With the weather and my health its hard to get saturday sometimes!

Been busy though! Trying to get these all out the door and buttoned up so I can get some new projects started! A hydro for one!

Axial Jeep Rubicon kit, Dinky RC LED buckets, Two tone gold/black. Got a bunch of gas cans and stuff for a back spare tire rack as well!






And my secret project a 1985 Tamiya Bruiser 3 Speed! I was going to update it, with a new body, brushless, etc. But I decided it is too fine a survivor to touch. All the vintage radio gear is awesome and still works! The servos need rebuilding or updating but I'm having a tough time selling it! (I like it too much!)





Hope you are all doing well. I am alive, and will see you soon!
