OH MY! What a day this turned out to be, and what a great way to end the year! I was getting some work done at the office when there was a knock on the door, a big box with HPI on the side was handed over as my jaw dropped. If there would of been video, I [...]
With the new year comes a new radio system! We are about to start testing out the Futaba 4PK in house! I was a huge fan of the Nomadio Sensor, but they have long abandoned their market, and it’s next to impossible to find their receivers any more. So far the Futaba 4PK is looking pretty good! [...]
As another year comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to thank all the people that helped make 2008 an amazing year for Big Squid RC. We grew leaps and bounds this year, and really have started to make some waves in the world of internet RC. From our viral videos, to our very [...]

Ah, the holidays are once upon us. What better gift to find under the tree than a brand new RTR RC Traxxas Slash! I hope everyone has a great holiday this year, and are looking forward to some awesome RC bashing in the year to come! I figure the mini Squid is a little too young to [...]
Looks like Team Tekin has tossed their hat into the ring of the 1/8th scale brushless craze! This is their new RX8 Brushless ESC. Like most Tekin stuff, it’s tiny with a lot of options. Look for this ESC to hit the shelves in February.
Ok, had a few people send this in. Thanks for the heads up! Looks like Kyosho does not want to be left behind in the new Corr truck craze with this video of their new Kyosho DRT. I don’t have a lot of details, but most people are guessing it’s built on one of their uber 7 something [...]

Ok, yea I know they are already the most popular RC company right now, and they sell like a million cars a day (haha.. maybe the big three US motor companies could learn something from these guys), but if you are not into RC already, the odds of you knowing who or what Traxxas is, isn’t good. So I [...]
The big draw to the Traxxas Slash is the racing. Where else can we all race a CORR Pro2 trucks fender-to-fender for about $300 (truck $200, batteries & charger $100)? Its good clean fun as long as you don’t take the class too seriously. One of the reasons that I say this is because it [...]
