arrma fury video

The folks over at ARRMA just released a cool new video of the ARRMA Fury. It runs through some of the features of the truck and their adjustable controller while giving you some cool action to enjoy!

Check out our ARRMA Fury Review Here if you are looking for more info.

arrma adx10

We just caught word of the new ARRMA ADX-10 race buggy. It has steel gears, an oil filled diff, dBoots tires, slipper clutch, and everything else you’ll need to hit the track. It comes RTR and pretty much waterproof as well. Check out the video:

With all the Ken Block  news we have been posting lately, it seems only appropriate to add the DC Shoes Ken Block Gymkhaha Five video that just came out. Seems like 4 was just released, so I’m surprised to see 5 out soo quickly.

For those living under a rock, here is Gymkhana 5:

Maybe this is what it looked like when the pyramids were being built? Or maybe this is what it will look like when the aliens come back? From the looks of this video, they may be already here, and just a little smaller than we thought. The video starts off a little slow, but there are some really cool effects being done.

fps russia

OK.. this is pretty crazy. For the record, we don’t condone, recommend or suggest anyone do this EVER! Not even this guy! But.. since it’s been done, the FPS Russia guy never fails to surprise with the insane creations they come up with. The fact that he’s got a quadcopter that can even lift a machine gun! I’m guessing he is NOT the guy flying. Flying a loaded machine gun around, aiming it at yourself and others, all under remote control that as well all know isn’t perfect or flawless. Watching it closely… it all looks pretty fake.. he’s looking away, and it’s flying around on it’s own. Either way.. it’s interesting to watch..

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.

motorstorm rc 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…

A couple of weeks ago we posted a bunch of pictures from the Motorama 2012 event. We just got word from our Hobbico friends of a video they just released from the show. Enjoy!

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.

Being both a fan of all things RC as well as artificial intelligence and robotics, this video is impressive on a lot of levels. they call it a Swarm of Nano Quadrotors.

I for one welcome our robot overlords. We will be playing real life Galaga very soon! Someone get me a ship that shoots nerf balls at these things!

Often readers send us their bashing videos, but rarely do we think they are good enough to post. This one from Shawn K. really stood out. Thanks for sending it in Shawn!


Think you have a video worthy? Drop us a line.. maybe we’ll post it.
