Unboxing a Vaterra Ford Raptor Pre Runner 4WD Truck RTR w/ AVC Technology


Finally, I have an “AVC” or “Active Vehicle Control” RC vehicle here in the studio with me. I have been curious about this new technology. I find it intriguing that a truck will now actually “sense” its own stability. I am excited to put this to the test. BUT! First, I have to unbox it for all of the RC ADVENTURES viewers!

Rigid Industries Jeep JK – Axial SCX10 4×4 Radio Control Truck


This is a special addition to my collection of scale off road trucks. It is a rare find – 1 of 8 only made. It profiles one of my favourite 1:1 scale accessory companies – Rigid Industries. Rigid is the leading manufacturer of forward projecting and auxiliary LED lighting products in the world. I have a several Rigid leds on my full size, daily driver 1:1 truck (seen here: http://youtu.be/S2ddTbrJfGs). Every 4 wheeler should have some awesome lights.. even the RC ones!

Traxxas Spartan, 6S Lipo, DJi Vision 2+, GoPro Hero 3, Radio Control Boat


What an awesome boat.. and good job to Evtek and his wife for getting some great shots while on Vacation! The Aerial footage was captured by a DJI Phantom Vision 2+, and the Great footage from the dock was captured by his amazing wife, D! The camera on the boat is a GoPro Hero 3. By mixing several different cameras together .. we are able to get a fun filled video for the viewers to see! AWESOME!

The Traxxas Spartan is all stock in this video – here are some specs on it:

Jem unboxes her Traxxas Summit 4×4, Electric Radio Control Truck!


It’s about darn time we got JEM a new Truck! She has been working so hard as a new Mom, she deserves something special! Well, PM Hobbycraft and I figured that an All Terrain type of vehicle was just what she needed. Something she can use to Jump, Crawl and go Swimming with!! HAHA :~) These trucks really are a great value for what you get, and ranks among my top picks for the “ultimate” Radio Control truck choice.

For all those folks who would love to see Baby Mac, he is at the End of the video for a quick cameo!

Enjoy my friends.. and fellow RC Addicts!

RC ADVENTURES – Traxxas Spartan – 6S Lipo Speed Runs – Radio Control Boat


I pulled out my 8400mah 3s GensAce Lipo batteries and slapped them into my Traxxas Spartan, AFTER I adjusted my bottom blades. WOW. This boat RiPS! 6S ALL THE WAY BABY! This boat is mostly stock except for the aluminum upgrades I installed to help control it better. Am I ever glad I tried 4s first.. because this was a squirrly boat to learn! BUT SO MUCH FUNNNN! None of this footage has been sped up, or slowed down .. all real time!

RC ADVENTURES – Knight Hauler, 1/14th Scale RC Tractor Truck


It was time to take out the Tamiya Knight Hauler hooked up to a Triple Axle Trailer and Bulldozer. The Dozer doesn’t work yet, but I am in the middle of a restoration. It weighs a Ton! But.. its a great prop for this film. The Knight Hauler is a beautiful rig top to bottom.. and with all the custom accessories.. it’s a welcome edition to the RCSparks Trucking company.
