It seems inexpensive until you buy it, then start buy upgrades for it. I paid $300 for mine (used) and have spent at least that much on upgrades. It won't end there though, next, you will get into planes and heli's. I now have 10 planes, 8 heli's and 3 trucks. Good news is it has slowed down my motorcycle buying. I only have 5 of those.

Needs driver figures...... not convincing being empty.

I've found the best way to stop spending money on RC stuff is to work for an RC company. That will cure of you wanting to spend money on it.


I've been in Vegas for the last 4 days testing RC stuff.

Barely stepped foot on the strip...Technically didn't. We stayed downtown in the Fremont (Old Strip) most of the time we were out at RC Car Tracks, went to a dry lake bed and tore around there in the mini-van. Went up to RedRocks, then a BMX track. It was work...days were long....nights not so much. Glad to be home, though this will be short lived. I'll be on a plane for China here in probably 2 weeks or less.

Kootenai Rider I know you don't want to take a chance of beating up my bike but it really needs to be ridden out there and you know I'm not going to complete. Don't make me ask OC to come all the way over from the ocean to do it.

Hi Gary!

I'll have to fire up the old airhead hack and drive Nanc over there to watch. See you there! Bring Larry.

Cool, at least there will be a few of us out there from ADV. I thought posting that poster would lure Lamotovita in to this thread to say hi but he must be too busy soaking up the sunshine of the south.

The weather forecast is for a high of stinking cold...... I'm thinking about it but I don't know if I can make myself go out in the cold.

Dale, airheads always have special reserved parking at my place, even if they have too many wheels.

I remember reading about trials in the MC mags when I was in high school back in the early-mid 60's. Now I'll finally get a chance to see one, and it's in my backyard! Whoopie! Free hack rides for all the wannebee lady "monkeys" that show up.
