Be on the Lookout for Small-scale “Scalers” from Carisma

To me, small-scale R/C vehicles are like cookies. It’s hard to have just one and whenever a new flavor comes out, I’m bound and determined to try it out. You can imagine my excitement when I happened upon this post from the folks at Big Squid RC, teasing two new models from Carisma/Carisma Scale Adventure.…

See it in Action: The ECX Barrage 1/24 Trail Truck

The ECX Barrage 1/24 is proving to be an interesting truck. What it lacks in low-end torque, it makes up for in trail-riding prowess. I recently set up an indoor crawling “course” on the top of a table and put both the ECX Barrage 1/24 and the Pro-Line Ambush 4×4 to work. Made up of…

First Impressions: ECX Barrage 1/24 Micro R/C Crawler

I’m always on the lookout for vehicles that can bring R/C fun both indoors and out. During the winter months (and when the weather doesn’t quite cooperate), having a vehicle that can be driven in a smaller amount of space, while still bringing big-time fun, is always at the top of my “must-have” list. Thankfully,…

Team Associated has been bulking up their micro line of R/C vehicles, with their latest model throwing back to the glory days.

Based on their 1/28-scale chassis, the RC28 features an orange buggy body, high-mounted rear…

See it in Action: Dromida’s 1/18-scale FPV Rally Car

My first taste of FPV left me thirsty for more. Thankfully, the Dromida FPV Rally Car arrived on my doorstep in time for some pre-snow fun. Taking a trip to a local park, I turned loose with this 1/18-scale rally car. With the Tactic RM2 FPV monitor set up and DVR feature engaged, I put…

First Impressions: Team Associated RC28T 1/28-scale Stadium Truck

Last year’s arrival of the Team Associated SC28 ($49.99) had me chomping at the bit to get one, however, after the first batch sold-out, my interest in this vehicle cooled. Thanks to a guest-review by Zach, “The Inconsistent TechDad”, I felt that I had a solid understanding of this vehicle and decided to hold onto…

One of the many reasons I’m drawn to small-scale R/C vehicles is their take anywhere, do “just about anything” versatility. If the weather isn’t cooperating, you can always set up an indoor race course or obstacles to crawl over. Even better, is when you can set up an outdoor challenge, testing both your own driving…

Snap Up this “Hobby Monday” Deal on the Dromida BL Monster Truck

One of my favorite vehicles to review, drive, and bash in 2017 has been Dromida’s BL Monster Truck. It’s proven to be an incredibly durable, insanely fast, and overall fun radio-controlled truck, and a price that’s hard to beat. While the stock $149.99 price is good, the deal that you can get at Tower Hobbies…

Team Associated’s Newest Micro Machine: The RC28T Stadium Truck

Just in time for the holidays, the folks at Team Associated have introduced another 1/28-scale micro R/C truck, with a bit of an old-school twist. The RC28T is a smaller-scale replica of the classic RC10T and is based on the established chassis of the Team Associated SC28 short course truck. In fact, the only difference between…

First Impressions: Dromida 1/18 FPV Rally Car

Earlier this year, I discovered a new way to experience my radio-controlled vehicles through the lens of FPV. Popular on the quadcopter and drone racing front, FPV has made its way to the surface side of the R/C hobby…and with good reason. It’s incredibly fun. I’ve been singing the praises of this form of driving…

Rev Up Your Hobby with the Seismic SCT from Revolution RC

Low on price, high on fun. Those are two attributes I look for in any new R/C vehicle. Small-scale cars and trucks seem to fit these criteria quite well, and now there’s one more model to add to the growing list of low-cost, full-featured machines. Horizon Hobby’s budget-friendly brand, Revolution RC, has launched a new…
