I like my stuff to go FAST and if it will go fast AND carry a camera so much the better, so, when HobbyKing approached and asked if i would like to try the V2 of their 1/8 scale Rc Superbike i of course instantly agreed. In the past i have repaired/upgraded a fair few of the previous generation of Nitro powered aluminium and plastic models but as with everything in our hobby materials and power systems have evolved and Carbon Fibre and Brushless motors have taken over as the main building components allowing powerful but light models to surpass the (relatively) heavy and complicated models of old.
An added bonus of using Carbon fibre and Brushless systems is the reduced cost in manufacturing and this lowering of costs plus the simplicity of using Brushless motors and Lipo's as a source of power has brought what was previously quite a niche product back into the realms of affordable Rc products.
With the complexity and mess of the old Nitro engines gone we can now spend more time doing what we enjoy and the reduced costs means we can buy more

On to the blurb..........

The New V2 H-King HKM390 brushless Racer is a superb on-road 1/8 RC motorcycle and has all the getup and go associated with racing bikes. The...Continue Reading

Most already know that i do enjoy "tools" that Work ! and by work i mean screwdriver inserts that dont break off or bend when you try to dig out that last stubborn screw or the screwdriver itself doesnt fall apart when you use it on anything other than foam. There are a multitude of different options available from pound/dollar shop sets that are a gamble on quality ( ive had some good sets and bad ) to mid-priced general sets and all the way up to expensive high quality sets that look very nice but are out of my price range ( doesnt stop me looking ).

My go-to set has been the Daniu 25in1 set in the 3rd post below and it suits me perfectly fine ( because its CHEAP, $4.44 atm ) the Daniu set is contained in a simple imitation leather wallet and the supplied bits are enough to take care of the majority of jobs you would use a mini screwdriver for. More importantly the bits are reliable and quite sturdy and havent bent or chipped even with my usual heavy handed abuse. The Daniu bits are held in the wallet in an angled slot which helps prevent the bits from falling out or coming loose in your pocket. I have had the Daniu set for quite a while now and its still in excellent condition with all bits in tact and i honestly have ZERO complaints about this set so i will use it as a benchmark to gauge the quality and reliability of all future sets.

The Christmas period left me a few 's in my wallet and having plenty of toys to play with i decided to buy a couple of...Continue Reading
