Unboxing – Team RedCat TR-MT8E Monster Truck

Just in to the BigSquidRC offices is the Team RedCat 1/8 TR-MT8E Monster Truck. The big news is that it is the very first truck in the new Team RedCat high-end line of bashers, so we can’t wait to see how it stacks up against trucks like the Kraton, MT-4 G3, and Revo. As we tore the box open we grabbed [...]

Axial Yeti Trophy Truck Unboxing Photos

As we are working on the review of the Axial Yeti Score Trophy Truck, we figured it would be a good idea to post the unboxing (aka before bashing) pictures so everyone can see it before we put it through the bashing ringer. First impression out of the box, it just seems bigger. Not sure why, haven’t even set it [...]

Unboxing The ECX AMP MT Monster Truck

New and super affordable ($129) from the folks at ECX is the 1/10 AMP MT. While it is named a “monster truck”, it more looks like a stadium style truck and we recently got a chance to shoot some pictures while pulling our test unit out of the box. Inside the box you’ll find the truck (of course), the new style [...]


Unboxing ECX AMP Desert Buggy

Unboxing The ECX AMP Desert Buggy

ECX made some big news when they announced their AMP line-up of vehicles. Why is that? Because the AMP line brings hobby grade 10th scale to an extremely low price point. How low? $129, which should fit into just about anyone’s budget. While we finish our full review of the AMP Desert Buggy, please take a look at the unboxing pictures [...]

Our HPI Racing Jumpshot MT showed up at the office, so it’s time for unboxing photos! During the unboxing we didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary, which is a good thing.

UDI Lark Quadcopter FPV Unboxing

We recently got our hands on a UDI Lark Quadcopter with FVP from HRP – Hobby Recreation Products and are looking forward to putting it to the test. Initial reactions to taking it out of the box, it’s a very interesting setup as it’s very light for it’s large sizet. Not so sure we are going to dig the USB charging [...]



Star Wars BB-8 Droid Sphero Unboxing

It seemed appropriate to end #ForceFriday by saving the best for last. The Star Wars BB-8 Droid by Sphero was blowing up the internet late Thursday as the press embargo was lifted finally allowing us to show off all the cool new Star Wars toys. This little droid is pretty darn awesome. While we ‘know’ how the head stays on, [...]

What does it look like when opening the box on the new Pro Boat Voracity-E 36? Well, to show everyone out in rc land what comes in the box we took a bunch of pictures while unboxing our test unit. The Voracity-E is certainly a beast, it is physically quite a large boat and comes with a brutish 6S LiPo [...]



HPI Racing Crawler King Unboxing

We got our hands on an HPI Racing Crawler King 1973 Ford Bronco Edition! Personally we were huge fans of the Wheelie King back in the day because it was just a fun little basher. Will the Crawler King be a fun crawler? While we aren’t expecting to win any comps, we are hoping it can take a decent bashing [...]



Blade Chroma Camera Drone Unboxing

We got our hands on the new Blade Chroma Camera Drone from Horizon Hobby, and have already started testing for the review. Out of the box, they have done a lot of stuff right.
