Review – Powerhobby 729MBL Brushless Waterproof Servo

Before we had even cracked open the box on the Powerhobby, Chris told us that the ones he had [...]

THE Retired Report – Passion Projects & FMS Is Smeshing It!

Ya know, I’m not getting paid for this! And, well, to be honest, that’s entirely my fault, as I’m the guy that decided to “retire from rc”, LOL. But see, I have a problem, I’m a loudmouth, and sometimes things just hit me in such a way, that I feel the need to spew them here on BigSquidRC. For free. [...]

THE Retired Report- Wanna Bash On Grandma’s Face?!?!?

So I’m cruising YouTube, blowing off another day, just like any other, and I come across the crazy video below. In the video, it shows an rc truck driving around a house. You see it come down some wood stairs without scratching them. You also see the truck drive over a precious piano. You then see it drive over “Dad’s” [...]

THE Retired Report – Super Caps For the Win

Ya know, living the life of luxury can be hard on a man. A man can only drink so many bottles of Dom, and extinguish so many hand rolled Cuban cigars, before he feels the need to actually do something. I could go into Brian’s office and CA glue all his desk drawers shut, but where is the fun in [...]

ASK Cubby – Smart Questions, Questionable Answers

“RC Super Stadium Truck Hello Mr. Cubby, I have a question: As I watch Stadium Super Truck races online, I think-wow, that would make for a great RC platform. They race, they jump, they bash, they go fast and they look scale. But when I look for an RC SST, I don’t see IFS/solid rear axle. I see stadium [...]
