Rob is 29 – and an AViD RC ADDiCT… A DareDevil by Trade.. this Scaffolder is now venturing into a pioneering RC Crawler world with a Brand New Rig.

RCSparks Forum Member “AdverseCity”

“AdverseCity” has been in RC for more than 6 years.. and built his first Rig oh – many years ago. Guess what it was? A Stock Enroute Berg Rock Crawler! Many of us already know the addiction problem here.. and my friend Rob certainly has taken his addiction to the NEXT LEVEL!! After many builds.. and after many long conquests to find the “Right” build combination.. he may have hit a “Home Run” here folks…

Check out this amazing BEAST of a crawler. I had the privilege of having him visit the RCSparks Studio today.. so I could get some exclusive photos of this beauty on the Famous Build Table.

“Nothing But the Wind” – Sailing on a Sunny Afternoon

About a week ago, one of my good friends mentioned to me that there was to be some sail boat races taking place in the far South end of our city. I was certainly intrigued as I have been wanting to branch out and really delve into the work and world of Radio Control. Boating is something I have always been interested in, and this seemed like a great opportunity to see what RC Sailing was about! Upon arriving to the Sailing port – I was met by a boats Captain, Ken H.

Unfortunately he told me that the sailboat races had been postponed. BUT – I have to say it was worth the trip as Ken had a remarkable sailboat on site, and was piloting it around the pond. So! Out came my Camera, and I took the very first boating video this Studio has done! Continue Reading below.
