Put a couple flights on the new simplecopter t copter v2.0. Flying on gem fans and 4s but found enough hk sf 8x4.5s for the next flight. With the new duraboom there are no concerns at all of breaking the tail boom... Its tough as nails. Sleeker design,less drag in the air and more durable tail,More info HERE.

This was a complete rtf package that did what it advertised. Camera ships are pretty tame but the autel x-star premium had a little get up and go in advanced mode but can fly very tame for beginners as well.

Got some new gear for this one finally and tinkered with the flip 1.5 board a little. The RCMC bl heli 4 in 1 esc is a big improvement,new motors to but still need to get some 1300 packs for it and a naze 32 eventually should really pep up the handling and response. Really starting to like these minis lately!

Had a chance to fly over the weekend and brought the T-copter with. Running shorter arms on it and 3s. Have to get it out again soon on 4s so its a little quicker.

Video from the record jump contest I attended. Multiple shots and some quad footage really gives you an idea of the distance a rc car can cover flying off a ramp when rc car guys really go big as well as the record breaking 262 foot jump.

As some of you know I help out with car and aircraft oriented stuff over at BigSquidRc when I can. This weekend I was able to witness a rc car record being smashed. Think of watching QQ or Andrew jesky flying for the first time when you were learning to fly planes and how much you were taken back by what you seen those guys do with rc planes. Even though I've run cars for years my jaw dropped and it was difficult to comprehend what I was seeing and filming as it happened. Hucking a rc car well beyond 200 feet and landing is something you just have to see to believe. To put it into perspective.. The Bigfoot monster truck set a record for jumping a bit over 200 feet and over a passenger jet. An rc car went well beyond that distance and could of easily cleared a 747's wingspan. Congratulations to Paul Bludgen from Midlothian IL on breaking the record. Video coming soon but for some pics and more info check out the write up at
