Early in September Banggood had their 10th Anniversay sale and I've always had my eye on getting a scale truck. I saw this go on sale and I pulled the trigger on it, basically an SCX10 clone and it looks sweet. I'll have a series of videos coming out on this rig starting with an unboxing video.

This is a cool and affordable FPV quad from SYMA. 2MP camera and wifi transmission to your cellphone screen via the syma app, you can control picture taking and video recording. It even lets you see the pictures or playback the video and delete the files you don't want.

Here's my unboxing video, it's a unique color of blue and a pretty solid transmitter that comes with it. I've own several syma products and they all fly great and I expect this will be the same. Let's see what's in the box and soon after this video I'll post my flying demo in this thread.

You can find this quadcopter here on Gearbest.com

Thanks for dropping by to look at this cool truck. I got this from Banggood and I'm quite impressed. It has that scale rig look to it and it runs great. Banggood also carries spare parts in case something breaks so no worries there. Here's my unboxing, detailed inspection and running video.

I got this RTR buggy from Banggood and made a video to unbox it and give it a test drive. Pretty cool RC, it was fun to drive. Would make a pretty good beginner RC.

I got it here on Banggood's website if you want more info on specs and pricing.

I think this quadcopter is the coolest looking one of all. Has a spider or insect look and not only does it look good, it helps protect the props. Flies very precise and makes for a good indoor quadcopter that does inverted flips. I need more stick time and this quad fits that bill I can fly it inside or outside.

Here's my flying video demo outside! Winds are about 20km and it did really well!

Thanks for stopping by. I received a lot of comments and interest when this RC was released. I posted the unboxing video and I received even more interest to see this thing running. Without waiting any longer, here is the RUNNING VIDEO of the WLTOYS A969-B Brave Pro Shortcourse Truck!

I got this truck from Banggood.com and I reviewed the original truck before (the a969). I was impressed with that truck and when I saw this coming out, I was glad to pick this up!

Here's my unboxing video. The running video will be out in a couple days here on too.

Here's a cool mini Monster truck that I did an unboxing video for. It's the Sandy Land from PXTOYS. It's a hobby grade model and it's a simple truck, great for beginners! I'm impressed. Comes with 2s lipo and runtime is around 15 minutes. Be on the lookout for the upcoming running video. Here's the unboxing video

The weather finally turned out nice and warm on a Saturday morning and my son has been waiting to get outside and do his favorite thing, play with the RC car!

I spent some time doing a detailed build tutorial video on this cool little buggy. I really like this RC quite a bit, I consider it the quality of an RC18b. Everything went in well together and no build problems. Only thing lacking was the manual, it just shows a "blow up" of the buggy and it's parts. Some areas took some trial and error to get it right (especially the drive train). But my video will help you breeze through that quickly in those tricky areas.
I have a Losi brushless system I'm going to drop into it and paint up the body, you'll see that video in the coming days ahead!

I got this cool 1/18 4wd buggy in kit form as a cool project to do. I'm looking forward to building this car and dropping in the 1/18 LOSI brushless system I have laying around. Should be fun! Here's my unboxing video

Spring is finally in the air and the temperatures are rising. This boat arrived and I'm totally excited to get this into the water and see what it can do! This cool boat I got from Banggood.com and it's list price at $140US in spring 2016. It's Ready to Run with 4s Lipo included, this brushless boat rips around at 55km. It's 65cm in length so it's fairly big in size. Here's my unboxing video going over what's all included

I did some thinking... I needed to explore recording at 1080p 60fps and I didn't have much money to spend. I've seen this action camera online and it's received a ton of positive reviews. I decided to go for it and I'm impressed. 4K is not what I bought this for, I nabbed it for the 1080p 60fps and 720p 120fps (great for slow motion). Here's the weblink if you are interested. http://tinyurl.com/zoel6ag

I'm including the unboxing video and a test drive video below.

Using the track laneways sent to me from Banggood, my neighbour was nice enough to let me set this track up in his garage. The lanes snap together quite easily and it made a nice circuit for micro and mini RCs. Here's a quick video on how the build went.

This RC packs a lot of value into a RTR micro car. Alloy chassis and top plate, a very good stock radio and fully upgradeable with hopup parts to boot. I'm impressed with this RC it runs on a 2s lipo with 15+ mins of runtime and it runs around 35kph. Has a cool Ken Block type body on it too to top it all off. Here's my video series on this car starting with the unboxing video.

I received the ESS ONE+ sound system so you can do on board audio in your RC car or truck. It's pretty cool. So I decided to make a Howto video to show how installation is done and demo the sounds it makes. Video has 2 sections 1) is installation and 2) calibrating the radio to the unit and sound demo

In previous posts in my blog I've shown some videos about this RC, unboxing it, running it on an indoor obstacle course and also a battery solution for this RC (RTR version doesn't include a lipo battery and most that do fit on hobbyking are on backorder).

This blog is my final thoughts and review video on this cool badass looking mini rock crawler. I give it a total thumbs up. It has a couple small issues, including a bad battery tray lid problem. But overall I'm very pleased. Check the 5 min review video out for some more detail. Have a good one
