iHobby Expo Demo Video

I put together a quick video I shot while doing our iHobby Expo 2008 demos for the crowd. Sadly, because I was the guy on the mic as well, I didn’t get nearly as much footage as I would of liked! Next year I’ll have to get a MC or cameraman. Anyway.. enjoy.. it’s short and sweet. Thanks again to [...]

O’DONNELL Z01-T 1-8th 4WD OFF-ROAD Competition Race Truggy

O’Donnell Racing has issued a press release talking about their new O’Donnell Z01-T Truggy. It’s 1/8 scale, 4WD, and built to race! I had the pleasure of talking to ‘THE’ Steve O’Donnell himself last week. He’s really a great guy, and cool to talk to every time I see him. They really put a lot of thought [...]

iHobby Expo 2008 – Axial Booth Pictures

During the iHobby show, I made a quick stop over in the Axial Racing booth to say hello, and to see what new goodies they had coming in the near future. I think the coolest was the Bender Customs SWX Chassis kit. The setup looked pretty darn cool, and it looked like a true upgrade that [...]

Thunder Power RC to Release Vehicles! Breaking iHobby News!

I’m pretty sure that the first few times I walked the show floor, these vehicles were not anywhere to be seen. Then one late evening, just before the show was closing for the day I spotted these two vehicles on a counter in the Thunder Power RC booth! The 1/16th scale looked sweet! The sign [...]

Cubby Report- Le’ I-Hobby Reporto

So let’s jump right into the good stuff. What was the hottest news at the show (besides the BigSquidRC and IMEX booth babes)? It was a hard call this year. I think the general consensus would have to go to the Traxxas Crawler. It was on display in all it’s glory, and looked really gnarly. Although, in my opinion, it looked [...]

Traxxas Summit Pictures from iHobby Expo 2008

Since we already covered the big 1/16th scale news from Traxxas, I figure we better show the Traxxis Summit pictures we took. The coolest thing about it, remote locking differential. Lock and unlock on demand from the remote. You can see the extra mini servo’s inside that make this happen. The truck itself [...]

Thank You!

I wanted to take a moment to say thanks to everyone that made this year’s iHobby Expo such an amazing experience. I’m not sure I can put into words the feelings I have had these last four days. From the thousands of screaming fans (literally.. wait for the video in a few days!) to the [...]

Wow!! What a public day for the show. We will have some full write ups soon, but it’s back to the show, and I wanted to get out a quick update! First off the show was packed! TONS of people. Second, Big Squid RC easily had the BEST demos and crowd reactions ever! Ask anyone that was at the [...]

Yesterday we reported on the new 1/16th scale vehicles E-Revo and Slayer EX, and today we have a few more pics with the prototype bodies! Even more important is the new 2.4ghz TQ radio from Traxxas!

iHobby 2008 Photos – Part 2 of Many

What a great show iHobby has been so far. We have met a ton of people this year. We have also had a chance to meet a lot of fans of the site which is really great! Now and then we tend to forget that more then just friends and family actually read the reviews and articles up [...]

Traxxas 16th Scale E-Revo and Slayer EX – Breaking News!

Ok, this was probably the biggest surprise of the iHobby Expo for 2008 so far! Hidden away in this little glass case were these two VERY early prototypes, so early, that they were almost models. The 1/16th E-Revo featured a brushless motor, while the Slayer EX had a brushed setup. They have oil filled shocks, [...]
