We had a thaw here in northern Mi 2 weeks ago, it gave me a chance to get a good feel for my new traxxas slayer pro. I love it, fast and handles great. I bought pro line sand paddle tires and took it down to the beach, that was fun. Winters back so I put it up until spring. I bought an exceed rally monster and I use that for winter driving. Both servos went bad so I put traxxas waterproof servos on it. Ill use this during the winter. The lakes are frozen with no snow on them and I use it on my plowed driveway. I really like this hobby and cant believe it took me this long to get into it. Iam thinking about a rock crawler, my basement would be great for an indoor track. My girlfriend thinks Ive lost my mind with all this rc stuff.

Had the Blizzard out in the snow yesterday. Not fast, with a 2200mah pack it will easily run over 20 minutes. This spring when I tear it down for inspection / bearing up grade it may get a BL crawler system.

I am waiting on the arrival of a Stampede 4X4 VXL.

Have you ever run the battery down to cut off voltage to see just how long a run time you get? I am running a 45 turn in my AX-10 and get well over an hour out of a 2S 2200mah pack.

Cool thread! I like the little WW1 planes. Surprised I haven't seen this video posted yet.

Added a Traxxas Summit light bar to the Blizzard today. It is running on straight battery voltage. Added a red receiver pigtail on the ESC battery connector. Future plans are for a servo operated switch to control teh lights.

You went in the direction that I plan to. . I want to go to the small RTF stuff. I went nuts on RC helis/planes a few years ago and have been on a hiatus due to a move/divorce/lack of funds situation. I fully plan to upgrade my two JR 10X's heli/air to DSM and start getting some BnF planes/helis.

Nice fleet of aircraft you have!

BTW: Will the cub and AT6 ROG? Also, is the yellow Blade heli in your pic, CP?If so how does it fly and does the e-tail hold pretty well?

The cub is only three channel the T28 is full four Channel (much more fun to fly but i think the cub looks cooler in the sky LOL). Both the planes have no troubles getting off the ground in a hurry. I personally find the cub more fun for tak off and landing and touch and goes though as being a tail dragger its prop is a bit further from the ground so the ground does not have to be as perfect as it does for the t28.

And the yellow Heli (120sr) is still a Fixed pitch have not made the jump to Collective pitch quite yet. It does fly remarkably well and the tail holds very well (better still than my MSR). But next up for me in helis will be a Blade 400 as id like to give collective pitch a try and i think anything bigger than my 120sr should have a gear driven tail rather than the direct drive cause although my tail motor holds well i have all ready had to replace it once (Was shipped over night free of charge by horizon hobby after i emailed them about the failure).

ooops T28, AT6 whatever it takes, my bad. lol Check out the new Blade SR (not 120) at EFlite :

http://www.bladehelis.com/Products/D...rodId=EFLH1500

Brushless main motor, cp and full RTF for $199. Might be a lower cost alternative to the Blade 400.

Yeah seen the SR looks really nice but read alot of people complaining of the Direct drive tail on it. From the vids it looks to work just fine so i might consider that route when the time comes but i gotta save up now for my big bike trip this coming summer so i happy with the r/c's i have for now.
