THE Cub Report, Version- Uglier Than Jeffrey Herling's …

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 [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- I’m No Sterling Archer

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. Sure, being the fastest on Sunday did sell a lot of a cars and bikes, but it wasn’t the best thing [...]

I’ve been a big fan of Vaterra since they came on the RC scene, but have been a little dissappointed lately with their off road selection.

We really messed up this time, and by “we” I mean a whole lot of people in the traditional rc industry. We totally underestimated the entire quadcopter/drone phenomenon. What could have been a cash cow, a savior to our industry, many of us basically looked at as yet another small fad. Instead it has turned into a behemoth. In case you [...]
