1 Remote Control on Tue Aug 04, 2015 4:30 am


So is anyone into any kind of RC? Trucks, planes, quad copters (drones).

I personally have a micro helicopter, micro losi rock crawler, small quad copter and my pride and joy 1/10 scale short course truck. I have heavily modded it. Ive installed a 3650kv onyx motor and esc combo, aluminum big bore shocks, high torque savox steering servo, a 2cell and a 3cell lithium polymer battery pack and a set up bfg mud terrain wheel and tire set. There are tracks where they have races on scale courses with banked turns, burms and large jumps.  It really is pretty exciting and while it isnt necessarily cheap it is alot less than running a fullsize race vehicle.  Its amazing how far the technology has come in the past 15 years or so.  Im gonna post a few videos to show some cool stuff.

Crazy RC spider. The control and articulation is amazing!

These are drone or multirotor copters that people race...with a FPV(first person view) system that lets them fly by watching a feed from a camera mounted on the copter!

And here is what i am into. These are really high performance little machines. on the street with the right setup these things can easily go 50 mph or more. Yes...I am a tech nerd/dork... LOL

Here are a few pics of my machine.

Truck with original equipment except for motor fan heatsink that i added.

My new motor and esc combo bounce

And here is the truck after many many mods... cheers

I would love to have that spider. i believe they had made one using a 3d printer. and it uses something like 26 micro servo motors. if you know anything about RC that is freaking incredible. most of the octopedal RC's that have been built use like an actual central motor unit or two and gearing to get movement. But seeing as every joint in this thing basically has its on dedicated, high percision servo that can move in the smallest of increments is what makes this thing move so life like. here is another video of it dancing.
