Scale RC Trucks from Axial & RC4WD

Scale R/C trail trucks and crawlers used to be the result of painstaking hours of custom part making by highly-skilled builders.  Recently, a few manufacturers have introduced some amazing kits.  Now even novice R/C enthusiasts can get started building their own custom crawlers and trail rigs.

Two of our favorite manufacturers are RC4WD and Axial Racing.

RC4WD

RC4WD offers two scale R/C truck kits, the Trail Finder 2 and the Gelande II Defender D90.  Both trucks feature an aluminum ladder frame chassis, center mounted 4x4 transfer case, stamped steel beadlock wheels, and cast metal axles.  These are two of the most realistic kits on the market!

Check out this awesome video from RC Sparks!


 

Axial Racing

Axial is known for their rock crawlers and scale trucks.  Their scale trucks include the SCX10 Dingo kitTrail Honcho RTRJeep Wrangler Rubicon kit, and Jeep Wrangler Rubicon RTR.  While these trucks can be built into ultra-realistic scale rigs, they are great on the trail as well!




Which truck is your favorite?  Have pics of your own rig?  Post them below!

Pre-order the Blade 350 QX Quad-Rotor Heli and receive a free battery!

If you're into R/C aircraft, you've likely heard of the new Blade 350 QX Quad-Copter coming out this fall.

Quad-rotor helicopters have been gaining popularity in recent years, but many high-quality quads have had limited availability and were out of the price range of the average hobbyist.  The Blade 350 QX fixes these concerns.

For those owning an E-Flite or Blade heli already, you know how easy it is to get replacement parts, extra batteries, and compatible accessories, all at affordable prices.  The Blade 350 QX will have this same level of support.

If you haven't yet seen the Blade 350 QX, here's some of what it offers:

  • Available in Ready-to-Fly or Bind-N-Fly versions
  • GPS equipped with altitude/location hold
  • Return Home function which brings the heli right back to the takeoff point
  • SAFE technology (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) with three flight modes
  • GoPro compatible anti-vibration camera mount included
If you already have a DSM2 or DSMX radio system, the Blade 350 QX Bind-N-Fly can be yours for just $420.  The Blade 350 QX Ready-to-Fly version is available for $470.

Both versions are available for pre-orders, with an expected arrival of October 2013.  For a limited time, all pre-orders will get a free second E-Flite 3S 2200mAh LiPo battery pack!

Check out the videos below to see what this quad heli is capable of!
