Merry Christmas everyone!
my first rc was way back in the mid 80s team associated rc10.it was a wicked buggy and wish i still had it.
Tamiya TL 01
I had to vote Axial as it is my first REAL RC I am proud to say I own.
My First hobby grade RC was a Tamiya TT-01 which I modded for Drift..
im gonna age myself again. my first isnt on that list, was a marui big bear, back in the early 80's?
mine was a Gold pan i still have it and i have a band new one still in the box.
my first modern hobby rc was a traxxas slash 4x4.
however, back in the late 80's early 90's. my brother and i both had a tyco turbo hopper. mine was the red 49 mhz, his was the black 27 mhz. both got run into the ground. my brothers burned out his motor or speed controller. we didn't know, it just wouldn't move forward anymore. and i managed to destroy my transmission. missing teeth, clicking. still drove. sort of. it would sit and freewheel the motor in certain points in the transmission, but if i could get it rolling and keep it rolling i could skip over the missing teeth and drive it.
i did have to give it a swift kick every now and again when it was stopped and the teeth weren't engaged.
Mine was Tamiya, I still have it, it still runs. from 1986.
I feel not having Tamiya on your list of first RC's is kinda wak, considering Tamiya is the company that made Kit models what it is today hehe.
Kyosho Raider, from the 80's still have it! Found the old B&R Magnum motor I bought for it, but never used just the other day.
Axial scx10 Dingo in 2009
my first rc was a jato 3.3, my older nephew had just got a 4 tec wich was his 2nd rc so i had to get a rc myself.
My first Hobby Grade rc was a Traxxas Mini Slash
my first rc was a Traxxas E-maxx Brushless Edition
My very first was a Tyco Turbo hopper. got one for Christmas in about 1985.
The next was a Clodbuster I bought off a friend on mine for 40 bucks in about 1994. The same one I still own and turned into this.
cc01, got it before kindergarten!
My first hobby grade R/C was/is a Team Associated MGT 8.0. It's a powerhouse!
i started with a duratrax ext, and quickly moved to a t4 because the evader was slow
My first hobby grade one was a Tamiya Blackfoot that I bought in I think 1987. I modded lots of stuff on it after my LHS had a fire and I got everything for 50% off. I drove this truck almost everyday for 2 years and I still have it today. It's missing some parts but I'm thinking about getting it out of my garage attic and rebuilding it back to somewhat original looking condition. It's what got me started. I had many cheapos before the Blackfoot but this is the one that got me started.
This was my first rc that did not have a wire attached lol i remember me an my brother both got them on christmas and took them out in the snow an my brother slid his off into the creek an broke it good times
