Charging Solved!

One of the lingering frustration’s for power-driver’s is the need to wait on batteries to charge.  With nitro’s, you might let the engine cool a little between fill-ups and go again in a matter of a few minutes; you could easily put 3 or 4 tanks of fuel through a nitro...

You Don’t Want To Miss This! 60+ mph Traxxas...

Traxxas has a lot of choices, and it can be difficult to chose just one (no one says you have to); this is especially true since they continue to innovate and improve existing models, like the Stampede. Equipping it with a Velineon 3500 Brushless motor and VXL-3S, Traxxas Stability...

Dromida Vista UAV – Dynamically Durable And...

The Vista UAV is a radio controlled quadcopter. It's not my usual test subject, but is of particular interest because my 8 year old son started learning how to fly helicopter's with an Axe 100CX. He's well familiar with the Dromida series of cars and was immediately drawn to this...

ARRMA 1/10 2WD FURY MEGA – Appetite For...

What do you know about ARRMA? I've been watching them for the last couple years, Jonathan Fox did a review on the incredible Senton 6S recently, and I finally have a chance to put myself at the wheel of an ARRMA vehicle with the Fury MEGA. ARRMA doesn't have a long history, but it's one...

Traxxas Slash VXL with TSM and On-Board Audio

In June, I tested and wrote about the Traxxas Slash w/ OBA and how much I enjoyed what the Slash offers. It's been a goto vehicle in my arsenal for all around fun, however the Slash VXL with On-Board Audio (OBA) and Traxxas Stability Management (TSM) is starting to take its place as a...

Dromida BX4.18 – Building an extreme speed...

My son and I have spent a lot of time with the Dromida line these last couple months, exploring both the brushless speed series of vehicles, and most recently the BX4.18 brushed buggies. The experience with the BX4.18 buggy was favorable as we enjoy what they offer. And while the 4.18...

My Favorite Part of R/C

The best part of this hobby for me is sharing it and spending time with my son, Elijah!  Even though he’s 8, he’s been driving r/c for several years and really seems to enjoy the different parts of the hobby. He’s just as happy bashing around the house as he is racing...

Dromida BX4.18 Buggy – It All Starts Here!

I became more interested in pursuing all the Dromida line had to offer and really wanted to see how good the buggies were. I also wondered what the base [brushed] model had to offer, and what it would take to go from a novice vehicle to an all-out racing performer. Subsequently, I...

LaTrax SST – 600hp and 130mph, what resembles...

I have a level of expectation based on my pre-drive inspection higher than could be considered unfair at this price point, but given the hype surround this vehicle I don't think it's unwarranted. The SST presents itself as durable, has a picture of Robby Gordon on the box, and everything...

Dromida 4.18BL Brushless SPEED Series – Rule The...

Dromida was the subject of conversation earlier this month on RCTech's homepage. The topic surrounded itself around the idea that everyone started somewhere in r/c, and in many cases when the person is quite young. Moving from toy-grade to a hobby-grade r/c vehicle can be a difficult...

Traxxas Slash w/ On-Board Audio

The Traxxas Slash has been a favorite for many in the past few years, and it's won several reader's choice and editor's best awards. I'm interested in finding out what all the fuss is about. I mean, come on, these short course trucks aren't exactly known for hard-core bashing, and SC...
