Thunder Tiger MT4-G3

Futaba's R204GF-E is their latest attempt at a surface micro…

RC Battle Cakes?

Adding to our constantly growing list of RC On TV, I spotted a show on the food network called Challenge. I jumped in mid way over.. but the basic premise was to build some sort of remote control vehicle out of cake. They started with various vehicles as a ‘base’ and then piled cake and frosting on top. Some people [...]

From there it was the RTR with a Brushless system and 2.4GHz radio, all for $99!? It was tough to believe, so we picked one up [...]
