While working on upgrading a friend’s Blade 350QX, he asked to get him that ‘new camera mount’ for his GoPro. A few days later, the Yuneec/Blade GB200 Camera Gimbal came in for me to install. Equipped with 2 brushless motors and mounts for the GoPro and CGo1 sport cameras, this gimbal is plug and play with the Blade 350QX and could even be used with other quadcopters after modification. The gimbal has a part number of BLH7910 and can be picked up for $200. Check out the unboxing pictures below!

A few weeks ago during our California Road Trip we first got the chance to pull trigger time on the latest mini from Losi, the Mini 8IGHT-T Truggy. We had a blast driving it around with the Losi crew and couldn’t wait to get our hands on one for a full review.
When we did get our review truck we took some pictures to show you what it looks like to crack the box open. Inside you’ll find the truck, a Spektrum transmitter, a manual, along with batteries and everything you need to get it running. Enjoy the 3 galleries of unboxing pictures below, we are busy working on the full review which goes up on our front page about two weeks from now. If you are interested in the Mini 8IGHT-T, Here Is The Link to its official product page over on Losi’s website.

We finally got around to digging our Losi LST XXL 2 Gas truck out of the box, and it is a beast! Coming hot on the heals of another recently released gas truck, we are really looking forward to bashing the heck out of this thing, and seeing what that .31 gas engine can do!
As you can see it came with the oil mix for the fuel, the roto-start, some tools, a lipo battery for the truck, and a Spektrum DX2E Transmitter.
Our full review of the LST XXL 2 will be posted soon. Check out all the unboxing pictures below, and for more information click This Link over on the official LOSI website for details.

The ECX line-up has become quite popular among the bashing crowd, and the Circuit 4wd is yet another affordable bash machine from them. While we were unboxing our review ECX Circuit 4wd we took some pictures to show you exactly what it looks like inside the box.
The Circuit 4×4 is a RTR stadium style truck that comes with everything you need right in the box. You can see in the pictures it comes with the AA batteries needed for the transmitter, as well as a wall charger and 6 cell NiMH pack already mounted in the battery tray.
Our full review of the Circuit 4wd gets posted later next week, until then please check out the unboxing pictures, and you can hit up This Link over on the official ECX website for full details on the truck.

It’s time to unbox the HPI Savage XL Octane! The world has been waiting almost three years for this moment, and it’s finally arrived! We are looking forward to hearing this thing purr.
Couple of quick notes, it feels pretty heavy, the roll cage looks cool without the body on, and honestly for the $960 we just spent, a foam or rubber steering grip on the transmitter would of been nice. Plastic, really?
Enjoy the pictures, there are a bunch! So make sure to hit the READ MORE button to see them all.

There was one tire that stood out after the announcement of Duratrax’s new 3.8 Monster Truck Tire line-up, the Hatchet MT. You see, the Hatchet uses a scale inspired chevron style tread that looks like the tires on a full size monster truck, and they should do a great job of shoveling mud/dirt/gravel while out bashing. Luckily it wasn’t long and we had a set for testing in our hands.
We received the pre-mounted version of the Hatchet MT on chrome wheels. They come packaged like most tires today, in re-sealable plastic bag, and the wheels/tires were pre-glued and ready to be mounted to a vehicle. We are big fans of pre-mounted wheels/tires because of how much time they save, we would rather by bashing than gluing. Also, we’ve found that the Hatchet MTs are some big beefy tires. When placed next to a stock tire off a Thunder Tiger MT4-G3, they are slightly shorter, but much wider, and with very deep tread.
We’ve already been bashing with the Hatchet MTs, but our full review is still a few weeks away. To get full details on the Hatchet MTs, plus all the other 3.8″ monster truck tires that Duratrax makes, simply hit up This Link.

It was time to break open the new Axial SCX10 Deadbolt RTR! People were such big fans of the Deadbolt body on the AX10, Axial decided to bring the scale look to the SCX10 as well! The green is REALLY green. When we first saw the parts tree, we thought.. ‘Hey! This was supposed to be a RTR!’ But it’s loaded with cool options like the different heads, etc.

You can see a cool shot of the ESC with jumpers for changing the amount of drag brake, as well as a lipo cutoff. It’s nice to have these options in the field made simple just by changing a jumper.

Our full review of the ECX Torment 4wd SCT comes up later this week so it’s time for us to post the unboxing pictures. Take a look at the pictures below to see exactly what it looks like to crack the box open on a brand new Torment 4wd.
After we opened the box, we noticed that everything you need to get going is included. It comes with AAs for the transmitter, a charger, and the pack for the truck is already mounted in the battery tray. As you can see from the pictures, our test unit looked great right out of the box, but I can assure you it has been tested very hard since then. Look for our full review Thursday or Friday to find out if the Torment 4wd is a bash worthy machine.

Team Durango, the relatively young company known for their high end race machines, recently announced their latest weapon for the 2wd buggy class, the DEX210v2. We recently got one in our hands, as we cracked it open we took pictures to show you what it looks like inside the box. The 210v2 is a kit, so inside you’ll find multiple bags filled with parts, a nice looking aluminum chassis, wheels, and a clear body/wing. All the part bags are clearly labeled, and after thumbing through the manual, it looks clearly written with sharp images to make the build easier.
We are almost done building the 210v2, look for our full review in about 2 weeks. We won’t be racing the buggy, instead we’ll be giving it the full basher treatment to see if it can be used outside a track just for fun. We will be building it in a mid-motor configuration to keep from destroying any motors on those big rear end landings, and in the last picture below you can see the Duratrax tires and TrakPower shorty LiPo that we selected to run in the buggy. Click Right Here to get full information on the 210v2 over on the official Durango website.
