Did you see the RC car cruising around the track during some of the track and field events. I saw it twice...never did hear anything about why, am curious to know more...

Well, in that case your post was off-topic.

The important point was that the crash in the video you linked to wasn't caused by either a Spektrum or a "spectrum" radio system, it was caused by a battery problem. Your video wasn't just off-topic for this thread, it was off-topic for this forum!

RC cars have been used for quite some time now to return the projectiles in the throwing events (hammers, shots etc).

London Olympics 2012 - Remote Control Mini Cooper RC (0 min 28 sec)


...and seemingly to entertain Usain Bolt between victories! He obviously isn't a Spektrum fan either, he's on 40MHz...

Spektrum needs their own subforum here - so many spektrum threads. It's hard to filter them all out. Or, maybe we need a thread ignore feature for those of us who have no interest in the brand. Then the radio forum would look more diverse - as it should.

Likely it would also be very slow moving with little content.

Thanks MattyB for the link. Guess I wasn't paying that close attention during the games.
