Tobias Braeker – “HOW TO get the bucket of RC wheel loader full WiTHOUT SPiNNiNG TiRES


This video is AWESOME! My friend Tobias Braeker takes some time to do a tutorial for RCSparks! Tobias knows I have recently acquired a Front End Loader.. and I’m struggling a bit with the practice. So, in true RC Community spirit, he took the time to do a GREAT Video showing how to Fill a Bucket without the Tires spinning. Here are a few words from Tobias:

There are only a few rules you have to follow and your wheel loader operation will look like the real one:

1. Keep the operation area in front of the pile flat
2. Acute-angle of 2-3 degrees between ground and bucket blade
3. Lifting the bucket to avoid spinning of front wheel
4. Drawn back the bucket to avoid spinning of rear wheels
5. Constant but less driving speed
6. Harmonic cooperation of speed, lifting and drawn back
7. Training, training, training

GRAUPNER LiEBHERR L574 Hydraulic Loader – 1/15th Scale Snow Removal


This is my first time using the this loader. I have been dialling it in, and have since switched out the old FM radio that it came with. This loader is actually 14 years old.. but was well taken care of. It is an original Graupner 1:15th scale Hydraulic Loader. The Noise you hear coming from it is the Hydraulic Pump. I have it on a variable knob so I can control the pressure. This loader turns with a Hydraulic piston, not a servo. The only servo’s on this unit are Micros, that control the Hydraulic Flow Block.

LOSI Desert Buggy XL – A BRUTALLY honest unboxing!

A few words from Hemistorm RC:

“I have finally received my Losi DBXL. It has been a long wait for me to get my hands on one of these rides after missing out on the first batch, but it’s here!

I will try to give you the most honest unboxing of this vehicle that you have seen to this date. I’m no stranger to 5th scale RC’s, this will be the 7th large scale RC that I add to my collection. And I know it’s fairly entry level, but do you get value for money? There are more than a few points that could definitely use some improving and upgrading, which isn’t strange with a ready to run car, but I do feel there are a few issues that I would have liked to seen addressed before my car actually passed quality control.
