ARRMA Kraton Electronics Upgrade

How To Upgrade the Electronics in the ARRMA Kraton

Hi, my name is Iron Mike and I like long walks on the beach and destroying rc cars. You might know me as a part of the BSRC Bash Crew or perhaps from the Prop Wash boat column that I’ve been slacking on (for months now). A few weeks ago Cubby comes over to my house and drops a brand [...]

Pro-Line ECX 4WD Sand Circuit

How To – Sand Blasting with the ECX 4WD Circuit

The BigSquidRC Bash Crew is firmly anchored in the Midwest, home to luscious top soil and sticky clay. One surface we don’t get a chance to drive on much is sand, therefore we forget that much of the world is covered with the stuff. After spending so much time in sandy SoCal this year, we decided it was time make [...]

[To start from the beginning, check out Part 1 and Part 2] The frames are built and the motors and ESCs are installed, and all that remains is one major piece: The Multirotor Control Board. The Multirotor Control Board is the heart and soul of the multirotor vehicle. It maintains level flight, helps equalize motor speeds, and also is the gyroscope for the [...]

Now these past few weeks I’ve been promising a build here on Raging Rotors, and yes I may be a bit overdue. Yet I will not give you one, not two, but THREE build projects in one series. I have gone so crazy to the point where I picked up enough gear to discuss three builds at the same time! [...]

70 mph ARRMA Raider BLX

Going Fast – 70 MPH ARRMA Raider BLX

When we read that ARRMA RC was putting on a Beat The Speed Video Contest we decided to give our own ARRMA Raider BLX test buggy a go. We wanted to see if we could go fast enough to beat their speed. The first thing we did was hand the Raider BLX to our resident high speed specialist, DWayne Buchannon from [...]

Axial Deadbolt Mega Truck Conversion: Part 1

Being a scale/crawler dude can be tough when you are surrounded by speed demons like the majority of Big Squid staffers. Let’s be honest with ourselves here – scalers aren’t exactly known for high speed thrills. I think Cubby wanted to kill me when I built the Axial RECON G6 SCX10 for review and put in a slow 18.5 crawler [...]

BigSquidRC Axial Exo TERROR Buggy

BigSquidRC Project – Axial Exo TERROR Buggy

For a long time THE Cub Reporter and I have been wanting to buy some tanks, hop them up, and do some serious bashing. The tanks had to be durable, go at least 20 mph, and be able to huck big ramps. Needless to say, we didn’t find any that would work for our demands. What do we do when we [...]
