Why do you even care about HTCON 2015? Well you should, with no iHobby Expo this year (next one is spring ’16), it was basically the biggest surface show in the USA [...]

Wow, sometimes the rc news gets me all riled up. Ok, pretty much anything/everything can light off a firestorm in my head, but last week my ears started smoking even more than usual. First off… JQRacing (along with perhaps one of their drivers???) started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to get a “Top 25″ driver on their team. Wow, just [...]

Ever notice how back in the day that many rc companies advertised only about racing? That wasn’t just the case in rc either, it is easy enough to look at the motorcycle industry and see the exact same thing.
