What kinds of RC crawlers, buggy, truggy, monster truck, quadcopter kits you're target?

Probably either a truggy or monster truck. I'm a backyard guy...not a racer.

I've built a couple axial scale crawlers, they're pretty fun and a nice change from your typical build. I've had the most fun with the wraith rock racer.

I've been looking at the RC4WD kits. I really like the Trail Finder 2.

Personally, I haven't found a kit I didn't enjoy building.

I'm looking forward to building the Tamiya 801xt truggy and converting it to electric. A lot of build guides are online and are good to go through to see where there are issues and fixes.

I have, but it was an airplane... half the parts didn't correlate to the instructions. In the end I just abandoned it, and used the electronics in other projects.

Ofna 1/10 touring on road belt type (forgot the name) to Ofna Hyper 7. then went to Heli 450, 500 and 600 HK
I also have the RTR lst, lst2 and savage -25.
