UDI Lark FPV Quadcopter Review

As quadcopters slowly takeover the world, the next big thing is flying FPV. We recently received the UDI Lark FPV Quadcopter to check out, and of course it was up to use to see if it could take the abuse of a basher. Did it hold up? Is it a decent quadcopter? Keep reading as we go in depth for [...]


Pro Boat Stealthwake 23 Review

Pro Boat Stealthwake 23 Review

Pro Boat made waves a couple of months ago by announcing the Stealthwake 23. It had sharp looks, a deep-v design, and most importantly, a very reasonable price point. When we first saw the Stealthwake, it actually reminded us of another Horizon product, the ECX Ruckus. Both are affordably priced and aimed right at the weekend basher crowd. What do [...]


Pro Boat Voracity Type E 36 Review

Pro Boat Voracity-E 36-inch Deep-V Brushless Review

If you are looking for true high speed performance right out of the box, the 36″ Deep-V class is a great place to find it. A few months ago Horizon Hobby announced their entry into the class, the Voracity-E RTR, and since then we’ve had plenty of time to put it through the wringer. Is the Voracity-E fast? Can it [...]



Star Wars BB-8 Review – Holiday Must Have?

One of the biggest toy releases of 2015 involved the new Star Wars Force Awakens line up that hit shelves on ‘Force Friday’ September 4th. Among the new toys was the BB-8 Droid by Sphero. The most anticipated toy sold out quickly around the globe. Lots of people want to know if it’s worth trying to hunt one down. Is [...]


MultiRC HMB235 (17)

MultiRC HMB 235 Mini Quad Review With Video

3DBill here, and we got our hands on the Multi RC HMB 235 Mini Quad / FPV racer. We have been told that it can take a lot of abuse and come back for more. That’s usually a challenge that we like to hear. FPV Quad Racing is very hot right now, and if you are actually racing, you know you [...]



Armattan Quads V-Tail Review

Armattan Quads V-Tail Review (355mm)3DBill here, V-tail quads are a bit more exotic than the average quad. They have four motors like a traditional quad but the tail motors are tilted to provide thrust to turn so it has tail control like a tricopter. Lets check out this back yard beast. Hit the “Read More” to continue onto our thoughts..


BigSquidRC Quadcopter Shootout 2 Looks 1

Quadcopter Shootout 2 is Ready and Waiting!

The wait is over, and our second Quadcopter Shootout has gone live RIGHT HERE. This time around we tested the Ares RC Ethos QX 130, the Blade 180 QX, the Align M242, and the LaTrax Alias. All of these quads were bigger than the last shootout, and have more features, and plenty more power. RC Quadcopters the world by storm [...]

Here in our mini-review we’ll tell you what we thought of our experience with it. Time to bash- The Proto X takes to the air faster than just about anything you can buy. We measured [...]



Spaz Stix Paint Review

Spaz Stix Paint ReviewRecently several major paint companies have tossed in the towel. One of the few companies left is Spaz Stix. These paints are known for being very different and cool colors. While they make regular colors like blue, they also make Electric Blue Fluorescent. Why settle for orange when you can have color changing Orange/Purple /Teal. So [...]



Heli-Max Axe 100 SSL Brushless Helicopter Review

Heli-Max Axe 100 SSL Brushless Helicopter ReviewWhen we saw the original press release for the Heli-Max Axe 100 SSL, we were sort of blown away by what they were claiming, and what you could get for the price. When it comes to heli’s, we haven’t really done much in the way of reviews except for some ‘dual blade’ stuff, [...]

Heli-Max 1SQ Quadcopter Review

Heli-Max 1SQ Quadcopter ReviewIf you haven’t noticed, Quadcopters are the ‘in’ thing right now.
