WELCOME MY FRIENDS!
Archive for January, 2011
Have you ever wanted to get up close to a Nitro Version of a Helicopter? I bet like most other individuals.. you may be a little intimidated by these beasts of machines that can cause so much DAMAGE in the hands of an unexperienced pilot. Well, before you run to the store to get the next “Latest & Greatest”.. take a Lesson from one of my fellow Pro RC Pilots.
Hands down.. the Biggest & Baddest RC Skate Park video series available online has to be the “RC ADVENTURES – Skate Park Pain 2″ line-up.
I have some amazing friends. People that are willing to sacrifice any of their High-End RC’s just to entertain the viewers of RC Adventures. It was suggested to me in the spring/summer of 2010, that we headed out to the local Skate park called “Millennium Skate Park” – in Calgary Alberta – and attempt the BRIDGE JUMP… A never Attempted, always talked about feat, that the guys were confident they could clear. If only they had enough speed… power.. and BALLZ!
Few talk the talk.. and then follow through to “walk-the-walk”.. but these guys pulled out all the stops to give us an AMAZING series – and it was to my amazement that these hopped-up RC 4×4′s made their mark – in the RCSparks Hall of Fame
Enjoy this Jaw-dropping craziness!
PART 1 – THE WARM UP
One of the most memorable, and favourite film sensations that the RCSparks studio ever created, was about a group of highly skilled pilots that tour Western Canada for the summer.. showcasing their amazing, breathe-taking, stunning, dont have enough words for it.. COOLEST JETS EVER! Some of these machines cost over $25,000 USD just to put together .. let alone to hurdle them though the air at speeds reaching in excess of 400kph, (or 250mph)!! Truly a spectacle to be witnessed in person – but this short series will get you as close as I could get to the action. I even had a chance to make it “back-stage” to chat with a few of the pilots.. and get a close-up look at some of these aerial acrobatic flying machines.
Without a doubt.. I am a complete water lush. What I mean by that.. is any chance I can get to throw one of my highly customized RC’s into a creek, river, or any kind of bog.. IM TOTALLY IN!
Though this little truck looks like it wont quite make it .. persistence, a good setup – and an eager driver… Makes this EPIC WIN .. one to remember! Im sure you will be surprised when you witness how capable these mini-4×4′s can be.
Though this video is one of my lesser known productions.. it clearly stands out as one of my favourites. For this short film, my wife and I travelled a few hours out of the city to a near by town called “Banff”, in Alberta Canada.
This film was shot and produced before the new iMac computers made their way into the RCSparks studio.. and really was a cool look into Jungle-type of RC Adventures. Follow along as this little Monster Truck tramples everything in its path.. and shows off a picturesque type of Nature that is rarely seen.
