yetixl_screengrab

So we got an email with a link to a dropbox folder, and a brief text. There are a LOT of Axial Yeti XL rumors floating around recently, and since whoever sent it to us probably sent it to 20 other sites, figured we better post it quick.

Enjoy:

Soon we will be posting some new job listings for positions at Big Squid RC, but we need this one sooner than later. We need a video guy! (or gal) Someone that can not just shoot video, but edit and create awesome stuff! We could REALLY use someone for this week’s iHobby Expo! So if you are in the Chicago area, have some camera skills, and can get the video to a finished product, drop us an email!
Even if it’s just a quick temporary thing, (like, you are free this weekend only) if you are a Videographer, and have some time, send an email to Brian.

sparked_cirque

There have been some pretty good (and not so great) Cirque du Soleil productions, but if they could come up with an hour and a half of quadcopter and other RC interactions happening on stage, live, I would be first in line. This sort of test interaction video was called SPARKED. There is a MAKING OF that you can see here, that has a lot of behind the scenes stuff they tried and tested that didn’t make it into the video.

The action starts around 1:30 in, so feel free to skip ahead.

Very cool stuff! The future of entertainment may be changing.

Vaterra K5 Blazer Video
With the release of the much anticipated Vaterra 1985 K5 Blazer just around the corner, the folks at Horizon Hobby made a video to highlight some of its finer details. Rich Trujillo, one of the men behind the design of the new truck, gives a short but detailed presentation on many of the cooler aspects of the Blazer and its new Ascender chassis.

The K5 Blazer is set to hit hobby shop shelves later this month. Hit up This Link for complete details over on Vaterra’s official website. To get even more Vaterra news, Click Right Here on BigSquidRC.

carisma_rc

Saw our friends over at Carisma threw a little video together of their RC vehicles taking the Ice Bucket Challenge. It’s a great way to show off their water proofing at the very least! Enjoy the video.

capital_one_4
We always love pointing out seeing RC vehicles on television. It’s like free advertising for the hobby! This latest sighting was in the new Capital One BuyPower card. It allows you to earn points towards getting a full size Chevy, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac.

The commercial follows a few different people, but one of them is a guy who starts off in a Hobby shop, buys a rc plane, and then later it shows him flying. The interesting part I thought was that not only does he appear to take off flying towards himself, but then once the plane does get in the air, he aims it to fly directly over his head. LOL. Pretty sure nobody flying a plane would consider doing that, but hey it’s a commercial, and I’m sure the director told whoever is actually flying to keep it close to the guy so it stays in the shot.

Check out the video below:

Few more screen grabs.

topgear_jeremy_police
Similar to Mythbusters here in the states, we can always count on Top Gear UK (yea yea, the good one, we know) to include some sort of RC madness every few episodes. Hey their intro used to show them holding rc controllers!

This episode had Jeremy Clarkson pretending to be a police officer, and he was showing off all the new hi-tec gadgets they could use to fight crime. Though I don’t believe they actually strap explosives to RC vehicles and drive them under criminals cars. I’m also pretty sure Jeremy wasn’t flying that ‘Drone’ so easily from a briefcase on his own.

Either way though, we are always happy to see RC being shown to the general public, and hopefully someone gets off their couch and says ‘heck yea, I want to do that too!’

You can watch some of the police chase parts here.
