They are wired for balancing with gold-plated bullet connectors for all terminals. They can be bought with a variety of leads such as Deans or the standard DTXC2211. I [...]
This has to be one of the slowest news weeks in recent memory. But aha! The Cubbster can always dig up a little something to rant about. (even if it is a “nice rant”) Horizon/Losi pre-released some hype on a “top secret” price leader being introduced at the end of the month. Official release date is 08.29, but if you sign [...]
While normally we only post Fan Pictures for the Big Squid RC Contest here on the front page that have Big Squid RC stickers on them, these pictures from TitaniumXRC were just too beautiful not to post! I left them at a pretty hi-res also for people to check out. Keep those [...]

He was actually hospitalized this week, but seems to be doing better now. If you get a chance, shoot him a “get well soon” note to brian (at sym) bigsquidrc.com . We need to keep Brian well and healthy [...]
Wow. I just got a letter from from Scooter telling me he has left Team Tekin! Scooter has been the face of Tekin for years now, and it’s always great to talk with him at the iHobby shows. If you ever get the chance to meet him in person you will see he is one of the most [...]
This is awesome! RPM RC has started to support the big boys! And by big I mean 5th scale. These are the new a-arm sets for the HPI 5B. Not that they do not come in these colors, these have been dyed. I also can’t believe that they can look that good dyed. I so have [...]

First off, I would like to personally congratulate all our French readers (as if.. LOL) on their country’s SILVER medal in the men’s 4×100 swimming relay. Experts seem not to know why ratings are way up for this years summer Olympics. Of course, if you are actually watching them at home, you know the reason, HD baby! Finally, loads and loads [...]
