Default Snow Bashing

I finally got a chance to run my unusual R/C in the snow last weekend. After a bit of time to get it all ready, we took out my R/C Air Boat, and gave it a run around.
This thing is such a blast to drive, and very challenging to keep from crashing. No brakes, and only responds to turning when on the throttle, and still slides around a bunch when turning.

As you can see on the video, I ended up having a few incidents that left the boat ... well ... broken.
Like all other R/C stuff, Time for some Upgrades !!

Check this out, and give it a like. Subscribe if you are into R/C action videos.

Looks like a great time. I had always wondered what running a big swamp boat on the snow would be like and you gave a pretty good example of it...

Have fun out there !

We have had some, but nothing to bad yet. Got lots of time left for snow though in winter here.
