Only just really getting into hobby grade RC but if you consider the toy grade RC's I have as well:


Toy Grade:

ZipZaps SE Acura Integra (Appx 29,000 RPM Motor)

ZipsZaps SE Acura RSX (Appx 34,000 RPM Motor)

Airhogs Terrain Titans - Thunder Truck

Hot Wheels Stealth Rides - Power Treads

(Acura Integra is not pictured)


Lower spectrum toys, yes, but hellishly entertaining at that. Especially the Hot Wheels. Its a small (appx 1:64 scale) tank with unbelievable ability for its size. Its actually a lot of fun just throwing a bunch of stuff at random down on the desk and seeing how well it runs over said stuff.


Sub-Hobby Grade:

Takara Tomy GX-03 Buggy (15 mph stock out of box)

3 CH Gyroscopic Helicopter




This toy is fun. In second gear, the motor maxes out and you wheelie without trying. Plus if you toss it in a garbage can and turn the wheels, this will rev fast enough to spin around the inside wall of the can and jump right out! Bought it in Korea on a whim when I was there in March, but it will be coming to the US in the fall under the Air Hogs Hyperactive.




I burned through 3-4 larger 3 Channel choppers in less than a year, and finally bought this one to play around with indoors and as my last helicopter. (I think I'll stick to R/Cs that stay on the ground from now ;) )


Hobby Grade:

Losi Micro-T Desert Truck

Losi Micro-T HighRoller (modified DT)




God I love this intro into Hobby Grade. And already, it's a money pit. Just ordered a LiPo battery back for it and ball bearings for the wheels. Planning on getting an Atomic BB II motor for it later, when I can find one in stock again, and might upgrade the suspension, arms and supports to aluminum later (or snake all of those parts from the Used HighRoller that I run as my beater - previous owner spec-ed it up with some hop-ups and then dropped it for peanuts to make quick cash.) Loving these toys!


Next up on my list is either an Electric Traxxas Summit, or a Nitro T-Maxx, unless something more interesting makes its way onto my radar :D

Recently got back into racing Kyosho Mini Z's at a local track here.

Even ended up picking up the newer MR03 with the 2.4ghz ASF boards. The newer autoscale bodies are so damn pretty and detailed.

Reviving this thread from the grave,


Anyone still in to RC?


I currently have a heavily upgrade Axial RR10 Bomber as my main basher, and 2 x Tamiya TT-01's that are currently being built up in to rally cars :)


I raced Short Course are my local off-road truck last year which was great fun, I ran a HPI Blitz.
