Building an AWESOME R/C Track in your backyard!

Building an AWESOME R/C Track in your backyard!

So, you want to build your own off-road track huh? The first stage is planning. For my track, I went with lanes 8′ to 10′ Wide. My fast sections are a little wider, and some of the slower sections are a bit narrower. I also tried to make the section farther away from the driver’s stand a bit wider, so they would be easy to navigate. I will primarily be running 1/10 classes at my backyard track. The usual suspects will be Mod Truck/Buggy, Stock Truck/Buggy, Stock & Mod Short…

With the stock ESC and Motor combo, the tire is decently fast, almost too much for the stock tires. Update: After 1 year of racing the XXX-SCT: It seems like I fall more in love with this truck every season. Now that I’ve finally started to get the truck dialed in, I’m only limited by how hard I want to…

GWS Slow Stick Review…

This is the easiest plane to land in my fleet. You can just set it up, and roll out of the throttle, and glide it right in. I used the following setup: Brushless Outrunner motor 11 x 4.7 Prop 20 Amp ESC 1500 mah 20C 3S Lipo DX6i with 6 channel receiver CG set 3″ from front of wing. Pros – Easy…
