I have restored a Stampede completely for my kid and bought a used one for myself.

I'm still getting familiar with my Stampede 4x4. Currently it's stock with the Velineon , just lowered the body for looks and put a few LED:s in.

Here is a video from a recent drive:

Been a while since I touched the little Magnum Reloaded.

Almost a year ago, I bought some 3mm x 0.5mm carbon strips from Hobbyking. Today I decided to put them to the Magnum.

Typically, when I add rudder or elevator, the whole fuse bends. Maybe it will fly better with less flex

I cut a slot from nose to tail on each side in the fuse with a knife, one underneath, put CA on the strips and just pressed them into the fuse. Another strip ended up in the wing.

Next up were the servos, they were pretty loose too, so I made a little box from balsa and thin ply and now they sit super tight.

I'm really excited to try it in the air!
