RC iCE BREAKER Fire & Rescue Ship Maiden Voyage – Aquacraft RESCUE 17

The ice is perfect, and the thick fog has settled across the land. A Maiden Voyage, and what an amazing day to get in some practice in with my Ice Breaker, Rescue & Fire Suppression Boat. I have been waiting for this video ever since I unboxed this beautiful rig back in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68rywALSH58

I know a lot of folks ask me about the products I use, so I usually grab some info on the rig and post it here. For this rig – please see the following from the Aquacraft Website!

“The hull gleams, the lights shine — and the water cannon really works!

Authentically detailed – and ready for action! (more…)

FPV FiiK BIG DADDY with Lithium (LiFePO4) Battery Electric Off Road Skateboard

The snow is finally melting, and I can get outside on my “BiG DADDY” Off Road Skate Board by “Fiik Skateboards” http://fiikelectricskateboards.com/ This machine is the upgraded Battery version, and really is a Blast To Ride. This is only my third ride on this killer board, and was really fun to splash through the puddles at speed! I had to replace the sound with music, because the wind crossing the camera microphone was so loud! Because folks always ask me about where I get my products – or product specs, here is a few words about the BiG DADDY from Fiik’s Website:


RC ADVENTURES – Learning to Drift: Part 18 – Excavator Drifting – HPi e10 – Vaughn Gittin Jr

I wanted to make my challenges progressively harder, so I broke out the heavy construction equipment so I could practice my drifting. After sweeping the floor, I hauled out two RC4WD 4200xl Excavators (30lbs each), My 6×6 Franken-Hauler (for illumination purposes), and a great Tonka Dump Truck I had made for me by JRPRC (Judd Phillips). I wanted to see how my drifting skills have improved over me not doing it for a year. Heh, you read that right. I took a year off from drifting, and then picked up this HPi e10 Drift car from my local hobby store PM Hobby Craft. Everything on the drift car is bone stock, except for the battery. i switched it to t a2s lipo. I am even using the stock controller (and though it looks and feels pretty cheap), works fantastic! Im happy for what i got.. I have read some mixed reviews – and my experience has been a good one. I will continue to drift with this car, and it may convince me to get another.. who knows. Heh. I know lot’s of people have questions about this car – so here is a few words from the HPI website:


SCANiA R560 Wrecker 8×8 towing a KiNG HAULER Semi-trailer Truck

One never knows when one will need a heavy hauler to come and rescue you from the side of the road. But for this unlucky Truck Driver – not only is he stuck on the side of the road – but he needs a recovery when his rig starts to give him engine troubles. When owner/operators have issues like this not only do they lose the load, but they have a hefty bill to pay to the towing company. When a trucks not moving – it’s costing everyone money. When a big rig is on the back of a tow truck – it costs even more.


MUD SOUP – Radio Control Trucks get Dirty

What a great day to get outside and enjoy some mud! Only 1 Problem.. It’s February and the ground is Frozen Solid. Well.. as a true RC Addict, screw that – Im making some Mud! Out comes my Skid Steer, a few Buckets of water, some top soil.. and we got SOME MUD! I have brought out a few Trucks to get soupy – a FrankenCrawler 6×6, a converted vintage metal Tonka Dump Truck, a Powerful Modded 4×4, and my Traxxas Summit! Also, for a Recovery option – I brought out my NEW Tow Truck.. to test it’s mite!

I expect each truck to Fail, and though this is a 10 minute video – the film took several hours to film. Interesting things happened to the trucks…
