Hello Everyone..! Well.. I had the pleasure of attending the JiMJAM 2012 this year near Drumheller with the Calgary Crawlers this weekend ! A VERY WINDY, FUN< and FANTASTIC TIME.. LIKE ALWAYS! There was a Ton of RC's there .. Of course.. and the Shilson Family was just OVER THE TOP AWESOME with all the goodies lined up for the guests.
I have finished an episode of RC ADVENTURES .. a "Snippet" of the event.. and a Highlight of my Trip to JIMJAM.
A Fellow RC Enthusiast, rookie101 and I busted out the 5th Scale Trucks.. and hit the 4 ft Ramp Jimmy has built for us in years past. Bet you havent seen Big rigs fly THIS high before!
What a Great time..
There will be a Longer follow up episode to the JIMJAM 2012 later this week.
My LOSi 5ive’s HIGHEST JUMP YET! TWO GiANT RC’s hurdle through the air at Maximum speed at this years JiMJaM 2012. I push my LOSi 5ive to the LiMiT with FULL Throttle Runs at a 4.5 Foot Ramp!
(** Note: Sorry for all the Wind, but I wanted the Viewer to use their own music! Just play your favourite song over this video.. or Listen to the Engine! )
This film is full of Friends, RC’s and PLENTY OF AiR TIME! Three things that I truly enjoy! My friend Jim, and family have been putting on this RC gathering for friends – for the last 3 years. The least we could do was put on a show for this amazing family! So.. Aaron, and Aaron – (me and my bud), pulled out the fifth scale RC’s.. and put peddle to the metal for the everyone, as well as the Hosting Family! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for inviting me to attend again this year! JEM and I had a Blast!
Crawler Ted, BCRocks, T3rry, and the Whole gang were in attendance! It was super cool to see some high flying fun.. and I pushed my LOSi 5T to the limits .. and was really expecting disaster.. WHAT WE GOT? a GREAT SHOW !! AMAZING, and Astounding .. my rig had very little damage – other than a Bumper!
