Yes, I love that guy's videos. Have seen a bunch of them.

The OP wasn't very specific about the use of the $100 RC, so even though the 144001 is great value, it could be useless if he or (someone...

I have that too. Downsides though is that the play time on that kinda sucks at 7-8 minutes. Also the pitch on the gears is pretty much impossible to find if you want to gear up or down w/o some major...

I was wrong about it not being able to wheelie. It's easier with a Li-Po and if you gotta roll it into reverse and really time it to pull off the wheelie assuming it's trimmed out well.

That's a big generalization that isn't particularly accurate. The HS 18302 is $35-40 ready to run and it hasn't let me down. HBX 16889 is a brushless for about $85-90 right now and it's my favorite...
