I have been building, bashing, crawling, and fixing my radio control vehicles over the past two years. I have had a ton of fun learning different filming, editing, and photography techniques as well. I'm not sure how I became interested in radio control vehicles. In this post I would like to share the R/C vehicles I have acquired and sold over the years.
R/C #1 HPI Crawler King
The first R/C that I bought was an HPI Crawler King with a Jeep body. My dad and I took my Crawler King to a giant rock where people rock climb. The area is filled with rough terrain. It just so happened that a bored news reporter was looking for a story, and just so happened to stop by. He took my picture with my truck and it was posted on their website. Here's the picture:
My next R/C was my first kit that I had to build. After building my Axial Wraith, I learned how to wire the electronics, and I was so glad that when I hit the 'on' button the first time, everything worked! This truck has changed a lot! Here's a picture the first time I took it outside:
I liked my Wraith kit so much that I bought an Axial Scx-10 kit. This was fun to build, I believe I went to bed late because I wanted to finish mounting the axles to the frame! Here's some first outdoor shots:
I sold most of this truck...
R/C #4 Traxxas Slash Ford Raptor
I got this truck after my little brother bought his Traxxas 1/16 Slash VXL and my friend bought his Traxxas 1/16 Summit. I needed a faster truck! I sold my Crawler King and bought this.
R/C #5 Axial Scx-10 Honcho
I really like the Axial Scx-10s. I filmed a few videos of this truck while it was in 'Honcho' form. I also hung a sheet and did a little 'photo shoot' with my Axial Wraith, Axial Scx-10 Jeep, and Axial Scx-10 Honcho.
R/C #6 Traxxas Slash 4x4 Ultimate Edition
Ok you're probably thinking why I traded my other Slash, and then later bought another Slash. Well, my cousin got back into R/C cars and bought a Slash 2wd. He began making his own batteries, and made the truck go crazy fast. This was cool! So I sold my Wraith and bought a Slash 4x4. This thing is so much fun! My cousin, my little brother, and I have a lot of fun bashing our trucks! I have flipped off skateboard jumps and broken this truck multiple times. Here's a couple pictures that my friend took of my Slash 4x4 in Maine:
R/C #7 RC4WD Trail Finder 2 Kit
I wanted to build another Toyota Pickup truck, so I bought a TF2. This kit was extremely simple to build because the axles, transmission and transfer case all come assembled. I cut the doors off, bobbed the bed and made a full interior. Pictures!
Well, these are all my rigs over the years of my R/C career! I have had builds that I began but never finished. My Rattle Trap JK was something I started, but sold. I also started a UTV build, but didn't have a good enough chassis for it so that was sold.
I do have a build in the works that will be very exciting. Here's a hint: "Just Empty Every Pocket".
That's all for now! Thanks for following!
