THE Cub Report – Country Road, Take Me Home…

It’s been one heck of a year so far hasn’t it? Personally, and professionally, 2018 will go down as the wildest year that I’ve ever seen, and I think a lot of people in our industry can say the same thing. Yet, here we are, and here is this week’s Cub Report. Well how about that, the Denver show is blowing [...]

THE Cub Report – Labor Day Fun

Well hello there fellow rc fans, thanks for reading BigSquidRC and THE Cub Report. Labor Day is generally a time for fun here in the USA. Most people don’t have to work that day, and for most of us, it brings an end to summer. Vacations are mostly over and all the kids are back in school. It signifies that it [...]

Le ole’ Cub El’ Reporto – Scud Missiling Foward…

Hey folks, isn’t rc a wonderful hobby? Heck yes it is! That’s why you and I are both here. THE Cub Report is pretty much a weekly smorgasbord of rc talk, but this week is gonna be industry focused.

THE Cub Report – Freewill

Hello rc enthusiasts, welcome to another lovely week in rc. My name is Cubby and I would like to personally thank you for spending a few minutes on BigSquidRC.
