I saw this a couple of days ago. The amazing thing isn’t the amount of times he films catching these planes, but the places he stands while flying. This guy really gets around!
For those that haven’t seen this guys vids before, the end is a classic. I won’t spoil it for ya though. But if your bored with the video, make sure to at least jump to the 1:41 mark and watch from there.
It’s a promotional video put out by Traxxas talking about safety and things like that. At the end they slam the Traxxas XO-1 into a car door and it just disintegrates! We should of did this to ours before we gave it away! LOL.
Probably the only reason to own a PS Vita is that the new MotorStorm RC game is FREE to download and play for North America folks for a short time. (Thanks to a Toyota and Scion promotion) The best thing about the game, is the included skatepark bashing that you can see at the beginning of the following video!
It’s an interesting looking game, but the skatepark stuff is what makes me actually want to get it. Anyone out there own a PS Vita yet? Played it? Let us know in the comments…
Our man Igor posted a few short Nuremberg Toy Fair videos up for us to enjoy. We have the Traxxas XO-1 on their custom Dyno showing off some top speed numbers. We then have the MCD Brushless 1/5 scale Race Runner V4 leaving some rubber on the carpeting. And finally the Böhm Stirling Car A4 which was this crazy steam powered contraption.

About once a month or so, someone will email me a link to this video. It usually goes something like ‘Dude have you seen this?!’
Not that I mind.. it’s a cool video, and I like being reminded it exists. So why not share with anyone who may not of seen it right?
HPI Racing just posted a video of some of their testing of the HPI 5B Flux.
I know lots of people have been clamoring since there are kits that already let you convert your 5B to a brushless, they would of rather seen a 4×4 5th scale, but having it come direct from the factory brushless is a nice feature.
One of our readers (Landin the Macnx, thanks for the tip) sent us a link to the above video. It’s sort of a round about way of doing it, but some interesting ideas using Arduino, an iPad, a Android phone, and some Legos to control a RC car.
Here’s part of the video description:
I used two servo motors attached to the original remote control of the car to adjust speed and steering. These are controlled by an Arduino Uno, which gets the accelerometer data from the iPad through a socket server on my laptop. I also fitted my old Android smartphone to the car, which uses an IPCam app to stream the video to the iPad. The “camera”, the iPad and the laptop are connected to the same Wi-Fi network to share their data.
Talk about all the bells and whistles! I stumbled upon this video and just had to share it. We have shared a few of these 1/4 scale videos before, and I just really like the detail these guys put into the stuff.
The office here is already packed floor to ceiling with RC, so I’m not sure where we’d put one of these, but something about it is really intriguing to me.
After the break the guy shows off the insane stereo system built into the trailer! So if you are digging this, check out the others.
Since it’s sort of a Pro-Line day around here today with the Day 8 Contest and all, we thought why not post up a little more Pro-Line news.
Ty Tessmann has been working on a Project Stampede over there, and it looks like it turned out awesome! I think he’s been reading a little too much Big Squid because he is clearly showing the heart of a basher in this video!
For more information on what all has been added to the truck you can hit this Pro-Line’s Blog Page for info! Ty, next time your in the Midwest and want to get your bash on, call us!
