Our guy Craig “The Uber Ramp Guy” Nelson brought it big time to iHobby this year. Below you’ll find a video showing a couple of things you don’t normally see, a 5th scale monster truck doing a standing backflip and also pulling a massive backflip over the spine ramp at our iHobby demo track. The truck Craig used was a Redcat Rampage MT-e powered by a Castle Creations 2028 brushless motor using a Mamba Monster XL 2 ESC. Check out the video below to see 5th scale electric being taken to all new heights.

Happy Friday and Merry Halloween, why not check out another Halloween themed TGIF Mystery Link?
Wow! Do you want your mind blown by an amazing video from OK GO? To make it even better, it’s filmed by a RC copter! No quadcopter this time around, the shadow makes it look like a octocopter.
The above shot is one of the only I could actually spot the Octocopter, actually just the shadow in action. I’m sure the OK GO guys will follow up with a ‘Making Of’ because this video is truly amazing (like all of theirs) but this has really gone to the next level again! Keep up the great work guys!
Spotted the shadow around the 58 second mark. Enjoy!

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.
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.
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.
