This is me driving and filming my 1:10 Traxxas Summit up a local clifftop. It is very steep, perilous to walk up when wet and plain difficult in the dry. The Summit is a peculiar car. The individual suspension, lockable diffs and the hi/lo gears gives a range of use that is matched by few other RC:s. It is basically good at most things but not really the best at anything. The fantastic suspension articulation sometimes makes it difficult to find terrain that really challenges the car. I run my completely stock and use it as a trail truck and hiking companion. The only negative thing is that it is heavy to carry when the batteries are depleted. Bring an extra set to make it all the way!

I am fortunate enough to be able to walk to a suitable field. Yesterday I took the tx in one hand and the FunCub in the other and enjoyed a late evening flight in still air. As dark replaced light I ended up lower and closer, finally getting some moonlight flight. It is a joy to fly the Cub, and the big wheels are perfect for grass landings.

Wow, just wow. I got into DLG with the Alula and managed once to throw it hard enough to watch it fall apart in the air. But I enjoyed it a lot.

The ELF, well it is something else. On paper it should be, the price, the carbon fiber, the competition breeding. And it is. Even on my first exploratory throws, late evening in still air, I got the thing to thermal. Seven supertight circles, staying up at three meters. Addictive.

This ELF is used - Iím the third owner. The fuse is repaired which added 15% to the AUW. My RX-5 from Multiplex was a press fit and I used some screws from a Traxxas to fit the wing cleanly. I still donít have the guts to really launch it but Iím building up to it. I also expect it to slope great in light winds.
