    Heh, no sweat, I've got a hell of one lined up. 8 days on, 2 off, 3 on, 1 off, 4 on, 1 off....blah.

    Rather nice to know that these packs will tell me they're dead before I've done any damage to them. The draw inherent in what I'm building is substantial, too, especially when trying to turn or...

    I'm currently working on a 1/35th scale RC Centurion tank. I have done a /35th model tank before, a KV-2, and in that I used a nickel battery pack that charged from ye olde hump pack. It worked...

    I turned Trumpeter's /35th KV-2 1939 into an RC tank myself. Wonderful kit, as is Trumpeter's entire Kliment-Voroshilov line. I've heard great things about their IS line as well, but I've never...

    T-34 or KV-series board would be pretty good. Soviet Russia used the same V12 engine in them all so they all sounded fairly similar. If the board includes track clatter you'll want the KV series, as...

    Noice! I'm pondering building another /35th RC tank and while the stuff I used for my KV-2 works, it's really bulky. The massive hull of a KV only barely manages to cram it all in. More space could...

    Oooh, pretty nice. Any chance of us being able to buy the mechanicals(Gearboxes, turret rotation stuff) to fit to 1/35th scale static model tanks?

    Any tank can run on sand. Tanks with narrow tracks, however, will very easily beach themselves, whereas tracks with wider tracks will float upon the top layers of the sand and drive quite happily.

  12. Building a 1/16th RC Tiger I out of a static kit. Need some info!

    I recently bought Hobby Boss' 1/16th Tiger I model kit. This tank, before being sold as a static model, was an RC tank, and it retains most of its RC goodies. Full suspension, nearly frictionless...

    Any ETA on the 1/72nd stuff? And what about the parts from said 1/72nd tanks? I imagine the gearboxes from them in particular would be incredibly useful for turning 1/35th static tanks into RCs.

    FlySky FS-T6 any good?

    I'm currently taking one of my 1/35 static tank models and trying to rc it. Money is too tight for me to buy a DX-6i and my dx-5e lacks the necessary mixing to get this done. I found a pretty good...

    Engine technology has gone so far since the late 90s that your statement here doesn't really mean anything anymore. 4-stroke glow engines of the 90s were rather weak, but nowadays they rival two...

    It's about 50/50. I do realize that about 90% of what's on my list would end up in expensive models, though. Just for sake of example, Stinger 609s are $5,409 for a base N/A model and nearly $9,000...
