RC excavator CAT 320 build blog


Hi, I am not sure where to put my build blog of my CAT 320 Excavator



Hope there is interest in this topic as I don't see many excavators here in this forum.

Very cool, is this going to be an RC model or static?
What is your asking price? My grandson would love this he has just about worn out his plastic version of an excavator with a wired remote.

after a very busy period, I found some time again to continue the project. I have made some modifications to the baseplate of the body and the connection plate for the boom to receive the CTI slip ring.

final fixation of the counterweight. I used a strong fixing glue to hold everything in place.
