THE Cub Report – Freewill

Hello rc enthusiasts, welcome to another lovely week in rc. My name is Cubby and I would like to personally thank you for spending a few minutes on BigSquidRC.

THE Cub Report – Where The River Flows

Well hello there, my name is Cubby and this is my “report”. I generally talk about the rc industry, or F1, or SX, or whatever really. So here we go... Pricing. Back in the day (read early 90s) a high-end RC10 Team Car kit was just over $200. Today, their B6.1 Team kit is priced at just over 300. So after [...]

Well hello there, whether this is your first time reading BigSquidRC or the 1 millionth, I am glad you have decided to spend a few minutes with us.

Well hello there rc fans, thanks for tuning in to this week’s Cub Report. Our bash crew hopes you had a stellar weekend, just as we did at Horizon Hobby’s RC Fest.

THE Cub Report – Back In The Saddle

Well hello there folks, nice to see ya on a Tuesday. For years I’ve been consistent about getting THE Cub Report up on Mondays, but that hasn’t always been the case. In the very early days of THE Cub Report I think I did them on Thurs or Fri, but then ended up using Mondays. Yesterday, on Memorial Day, I [...]

THE Cub Report – Finding Marvingate

Is it summer yet? Around the greater Chicago metro it feels more like early spring, but luckily most of the country is sporting the type of temps you want for getting out and bashing. Or busting out the rc boat, plane, tank, etc. 🙂 First up this week is Pro-Line’s By The Fire! It is almost here (goes down this weekend!), [...]
