    Tyco Max Van

    It was not actually radio controlled. It had a "Clicker" control that made a loud clicking noise. The van had forward, stop, and reverse with left turn. So, you clicked the controller, and it would go forward. Click again, it would stop. Click again, it would back up and turn left. Click/stop. click/forward and so on an on. It was really a piece of junk but that is the first remote control toy I can remember having. It must have been obscure because google cant even find it.

    I was so un-enthused by that first experience, I did not even mess with RC again for 30 years 'til now. Now, I am out of control and I have to build shelving or quite possibly an addition to the garage to hold all the trucks and boats and planes etc.

    My first RC Car was a Futaba Stadium truck 20 years ago... rode my 10 speed from Orlando out to Kissimee to get it from the only hobby shop i could find... loved that truck... ahh the memories... somewhere it got lost in my move from Florida.. and i didnt get another RC until 2000.

    first one i can remember was a yellow radio shack "dash" 4x4 monster truck with no suspension.
    next one i can remember was a nikko high roller monster camaro. which i still have. i put hobby grade guts in it.
    then came a tyco fast traxx pick up. wish i still had it. or at least the body.
    then came a tyco lamborghini countach.

    then came my first hobby grade which was a kyosho stadium baja.
    after that i think came my tamiya M03 chassis mini cooper.
    then a used bolink eliminator.
    then a RC10T3.
    then a losi XXXT.
    then a used HPI nitro RS4 2 and used tower hobbies ST15

    and there's been some toy grade filler in there. i still have 2 radio shack street comber's and a porsche 959.
    i remember a small cheap kool-aid corvette in the early/mid 90's.
    zip zaps i have one of those with no tires. damn things dry rotted away on me.
    super cheap "cave dweller" buggy made by i think nikko. still have that.

    oh yeah and i have a nikko boat. forget the name of it. but it has a silver can 540 motor in it which iv replaced twice. hasn't been used in almost 10 years, it might still work. if not, new project!

    nope sorry. iv been thinking of giving boats a try. was going to use it as an introduction to RC boating. had the idea a while back of making battery boxes out of fiberglass, making a radio box and swapping the stock electronics to hobby grade. cause right now it runs on 6 C cell battery's and 4 or 6 AA battery's and the radio takes another 6AA battery's. not going to get crazy with it. just something to cruise around the local pond with. i figure if i like RC boating ill buy a full hobby grade boat (or scratch build one) and use this one as a retrieval vessel. if it turns out i don't like RC boating i have something to cruise around swimming pools with

    My first RC was a Tyco Turbo Hammer truck... it was RWD and had a switch on the back axle for high and low gears. The batteries took about 4 hours to charge and ran for maybe 15 minutes... Times have thankfully changed a bit since then.
    :)

    I still have it, though it hasn't moved in years. I think the motor was burnt out or something. Might have to look into it.

    Since my brother was in the hobby for a few years before I was into it I got one of his hammy downs which was a 2.5 Jato that needed a front A-Arm and a new spur. I ran that for a while until it met a mailbox post and shattered to where it would cost more to repair then to replace. The first truck I bought was right after that and since it was hard to get money at 15 so I just bought an old Traxxas Bandit which I still have.

    First real one was a 1:10 scale nitro truggy. It has Tamiya and T2M logos on the box, and is called Eagle Truck 5000 Series. I still have it laying around here but there's no spare parts for it anymore.
