Kyosho Pocket Armour 1/60 R/C Tank: The Review

Kyosho Pocket Armour 1/60 R/C Tank: The Review

If I’ve learned anything from this hobby, it’s that you can create a radio-controlled model out of any type of vehicle. While cars, trucks, and plans  are the most common, it doesn’t take long to discover that anything with tires or treads, can be miniaturized and mobilized. Last Christmas, Santa Claus left a unique R/C…

Axial Yeti Jr. SCORE 1/18 Trophy Truck

Backyard off-road racing has a fresh, new look. Axial didn’t just dip their toe into the small-scale R/C world with the release of their Yeti Jr. 1/18 rock racer. They jumped in with two 1/18-scale models, based on the popular 1/10 and ⅛ Yeti off-road machines. The second vehicle release is the Yeti Jr. SCORE…

Axial’s Yeti Jr: A 1/18-scale R/C Rock Racer

Axial’s Yeti Jr: A 1/18-scale R/C Rock Racer

A lean, mean, small-scale radio-controlled machine. In nearly five years of being a R/C hobbyist and enthusiast, I can’t remember a seeing larger boom in the world of small-scale radio-controlled cars and trucks, as what we’ve seen this year. Not only have “traditional” vehicle types been announced and released (buggies, short course trucks, touring cars,…

Review: Carisma’s GT24B R/C Buggy

Review: Carisma’s GT24B R/C Buggy

Having completed my review of the Carisma GT24T, I turned my attention to another one of Carisma’s small-scale machines, the equally sporty GT24B buggy. Although these two cars share many of the same components, their similarities stop when you mash the throttle. And believe me, there was plenty of throttle-mashing during this review. Carisma GT24B…

A 1/28-scale replica of Carl Renezeder’s Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Machine Small-scale is the new big thing in the world of R/C.

Review: Carisma GT24T R/C Monster Truck

Review: Carisma GT24T R/C Monster Truck

Small and speedy sum up this brushless-powered, 1/24-scale, 4-wheel drive monster truck. Smaller-scale (1/18 and under) radio-controlled vehicles can get a bad rap for not being on-par with their larger-scale counterparts. I’ve written, on more than one occasion, how my view of these small machines has changed over the years. Smaller doesn’t always mean less.…

They have added another 1/32-scale vehicle to their expanding Q32 lineup with the addition of the Q32 Trophy Truggy.
