Default Wraith gone camping!

Over the weekend I took my Wraith with me on a camping trip out towards Mt. Hood. Got a lot of time in running it and some great pics! This is by far my favorite RC I have owned. It does a little of everything.

At one point I found a very long steep hill (about 20-25' high) to climb with loose rock. The first trip I made it up with fairly quickly with a few adjustments while climbing. Great I thought, let me video the next one. Well the next 5 attempts ended with the Wraith tumbling all the way to the bottom. LOL! Finally on the 6th attempt I conquered the hill again. Maybe the pressure of the video camera rolling? Iono Anyways, nothing broken during those tumbles. Did have a rear shock pop loose but a quick removal and install of a screw fixed that. Very surprised at the distance and impact it took in those falls that I didn't do major damage.

Here are some pics of my Wraith in action along with the hill.

Looks like an awsome place to bash!  Did you bring a 12V to charge batteries on or just bring enough with you?
