Buddy RC Contest - Contest Over

Show us your shop for a chance to win a charger from the fine folks at Buddy RC!!


Enter to Win the T8 1000W 30A 8S Smart Charger!!

None of us started with a shop. It's usually something that evolves. You get a hobby, then some tools and then you get so many tools you need a "space." Some people have as much fun setting up and building a shop as they do working on their actual planes, quads, cars, and more!

Buddy RC

I jumped on the phone with the folks at Buddy RC and told them I had a great idea for a contest and they said they were in! They also said there might be a little more in the winner's box than just a charger!

  • That's it!

Contest Info

  • The contest will run from the start date of the thread until Feb. 8th.

I love these low effort, big info contests…

Here’s my one car garage shop. I understand that car fires in home garages are a big source of house fires, so why take a chance. (I charge LiPos in a steel ammo box.) The building board is a 9’ solid core door - heavy. No build at this moment but the parts are there for the next one.

I like Timisplanecrazy...he who has the most planes when they die, wins.

My saying is “he who has the messiest shop when they die, wins.”

I have fine tuned this space in my garage as much as I can. I don't see anywhere else I can add planes.

I'm just getting into the hobby....I was using the dining room table.... my wife was getting tired of looking at the "Junk" so I cleared out a little nook in a spare bedroom!
