Robugtix T8 Spider – it will make your skin crawl!

If you are Arachnophobic, or under 6 years old.. you may not want to watch this..

Approximately two years ago I purchased a “pre-order” for one of these amazing remote controlled Robugtix spiders. Though I was supposed to receive it within 6 months of the pre-order date – development of this machine took 3 times longer than planned. The company was very quiet, but dropped updates and status on development on their website. Finally, after a very long wait.. the product was shipped to me, and my order was filled. WOW.. Worth the wait!! haha :-) This thing is down right creeeepy! It is the size of a dinner plate, and operated through a wi-fi system on your mobile device. The T8 sets up a small intranet to chat to the mobile device as you use a platform for joysticks and movement. The GUI could use some work, and is very basic – but functional – barely. Lol. But.. with some practice I think this little spider has some great potential. Scary potential! Who knew we are living ina world with robotic spiders that can carry out commands.. YiKES! Next they will be jumping, flying and landing on you.. haha.

Halloween will never be the same again!

Offroad Wheelin Accident, Trailer Rollover – Chevy Duramax & Toyota Hilux

OFF ROAD mayhem ensues when attempting to reach remote camping spots in the deep back woods.. and towing a fifth wheel, triple axle trailer. It’s up to the witts and maneuverability of the two trucks to get things tight and tidy.. and to always get back on the trail! The powerful Chevy Duramax diesel is able to pull this mighty homemade trailer, but it seems that it could use a helping hand on the trail while trying to reach the destination spot. I am driving the Toyota Hilux and I am glad I am equipped with many tow straps and mounting points. I have a 16lb truck – and it is very top heavy. Some may notice that my front suspension is stiff – and the rear suspension has a 4 Link, with softer flex. This is to offset the weight of my Roll Cage and Hard Body.

I sure am glad we were able to get the trailer to the camping spot, as when we went wheelin’ in the MUD it was the Duramax who was able to get us unstuck!

A Special thanks to Ogden RC – AKA Sean for bringing his home made trailer and truck for an RC ADVENTURES film for all to enjoy! Really cool how creative people can get with the Radio Control Hobby

Enjoy the show, my friends!

SUPERMAN RAMP – CEN GSTE Colossus 4×4 Monster Truck takes flight

What a great rig this is! My buddy Everett wanted to take his CEN GST-E Monster Truck out and give it a whirl in our bashing area. I trimmed up the video to keep the parts I know you all would like to see. Starting it off easy, and working his way into it – Everett starts off with the table top, and then on to the Superman Ramp. It takes guts to hit this ramp with your RC, as you know that if it launches.. more then likely, you are going to have something broken. So it’s completely FULL Throttle the whole way.. if you are gunna risk it.. may as well be an epic ride!

The CEN GST-E (Electric) 1/8th Scale Monster Truck really is powerhouse.. and held together like a champ!

Awesome Job Everett! Thanks for the SHOW!

Ford Raptor 4×4 & Modified NQD Jet Boat on the Trail – Radio Control 1/10th Scale

SO GREAT to be outside and enjoying some RC fun. I didn’t let the rain stop me.. I grabbed my gear and headed out. The Radio Controlled truck I am using is a Vaterra Ascender 4×4 (Electric with a 2s Lipo Battery). The sound kit in it is the Ess-One, I found on eBay, and the Tire and rim combo is from RC4WD. The ESC and motor combo is from Team Tekin. It is the FXR & 35t Motor crawler combo. The battery I am running to power the truck is a 4200mah short pack – giving me about 1 1/2 hours of run time. AWESOME! See it on a HUGE outdoor trail course here:

The jet Boat I am running is a modified “NQD Tear Into” jet boat, that has a 50amp ESC and Brushless motor combo. I am running it on 3s, but have the throttle dialed back to 75%. It sure is a peppy little thing.. and has even more throttle to go! See it running in 100% throttle mode and Class 4 Rapids here:

I hope you enjoyed todays video.. I did not add music so you can enjoy the sounds of nature and some cool rc machines!

Backflipping a Demon 4WD Orion Powered Brushless World Rally Car Kyosho 1/9 DRX VE

A beautiful day for a BACK FLiP! My first few attempts were really just a way to feel how the car responded in the air. Full throttle all the way if you want to flip your car a full 360 degrees! This video is a short one, intended to tempt you into getting outdoors to let your imagination run crazy with the hobby of Radio Control. Technology has come such a long way in the last few years.. and almost anything is possible with this hobby. If you can dream it, chances are you can do it! Today I am jumping my rally car. I have modded it to fit larger tires (for a short course truck) and the rest is all stock. I wanted to do a short, exciting video that inspires you to GO OUTSiDE and get some fresh air.. haha 😉 I hope it works! (more…)

Search for GOLD – Prospecting with a 4200xl Hydraulic Excavator 1/12 scale

Sometimes I wonder why I invest so much money into full scale operations when small scale is also a lot of fun! HAH! No Gold today unfortunately, I should have been digging in a corner of the stream – but everything is quite flooded. Looks like I was actually pulling up tailings from another persons dig.. I will have to keep searching for that elusive black sand..

The RC machine I am using today is distributed by a company called RC4WD online.. Here is some info about the product: (more…)
