Vaterra RC Logo BigSquidRCThe all new product line-up from Horizon Hobby is called Vaterra RC. Vaterra is said to be Adventure Driven and their initial product line-up includes 4 electric off-road vehicles and 3 on-road machines. Vaterra is- “It is a shared passion for motorsports and radio control. Extreme performance and extreme places. Cars and trucks that look and drive just like the real thing. Most of all, it’s about gathering friends, grabbing the vehicle and having the time of your life.”, which sounds great to us! Vaterra looks to be a great basher friendly line-up of vehicles.

The off-road line-up includes-

Glamis Uno Single-Seat Buggy RTR 1/8- $439
Twin Hammers 1.9 Rock Racer RTR- $399
Kemora 4WD Rallycross 1/14th RTR- $289
Kalahari 4WD Desert Raider RTR 1/14- $289

The on-road selection includes-

2012 Nissan GTR V100-S 1/10 RTR- $279
1969 Chevolet Camaro RSV100-S 1/10 RTR $279
2012 Chevolet Camaro ZL1 V100-S 1/10 RTR $279

We will be posting more information and pictures for each of the new Vaterra vehicles later today, until then, hit up the official Vaterra Website to check out all their brand new vehicles.

Since the beginning of Big Squid RC, we have always posted the occasional RC Boat News in our rc-boat tag, and we have also posted RC Plane News under our RC Plane tag. While 99% of our news is surface related, as bashers we tend to dabble in other things.
Most of us here own or have owned several boats, and most of us have also flown (read crashed) several planes. Only 3DBill can actually claim to be an rc pilot, and none of us are big into the boat scene, but we all enjoy hitting the waves, or flying on occasion. It is for that reason, we have decided to start bringing you a little more news in both of these areas.
Before you start sending the hate mail (address those to Cubby btw) we can promise that we are not forgetting that we are mainly about the monster trucks and cars. We will continue to be mainly truck and car and surface news, but don’t be surprised if you see a new boat story, or a possible plane or quad review.
We are bashers at heart, always have been, and always will be! Not like all those other ‘news sites’ who have been die hard racers for the last 20 years, and only in the last few that we have started kicking their butts and leaving them in the dust have they started using the word ‘basher’ on their sites. You know who we are talking about, and so do they. They aren’t fooling anyone. There is no ‘car’ or ‘truck’ or ‘drive’ in our name. We are BIG SQUID RC and we enjoy bashing in every form of RC we can get our hands on! Every bash or event we have ever done, there is usually some other form of RC present, and we think it’s time to talk about it all.

We aren’t changing who we are, or what we do, we are just bringing you more of it. Welcome to Big Squid RC 2013!
