    RE: Hobby Summit 1/16 Abrams

    if it is a hobby engine or HE or such, it is a toy RC. a Heng Long tank is the best. A "Smoke & Sound" is the best version even if you never use the smoke or never use the sound. It has a proportional driving and has working control trim so you can straighten out your tank if needed. An example of a dealer is Mato toys. http://www.matotoys.com/canada/

    Thanks for the reply The Stuff. That's pretty much what I had figured about it being a toy, it is an HE, one of those cases where it almost seemed to good to be true.

    I am sure now that the first tank for me will be the HL Tiger 1 S&S. [sm=thumbs_up.gif]

    forgot to say to that you should go for a "super version" if you can find it. comes with metal gearbox and treads and sprockets.

    and that tiger will be many times of fun for you. also think it is the largest out of the HL group. the king tiger might be bigger but its mattorro.
