Radio Control Vehicles

There are a lot of RC photo’s on my photobucket, so browse around.

I’ve been doing RC vehicles for a long time. I got out of it a for a while and when I came back there’s a new world to me of  “Scalers” and “Crawlers”. Check out my Nostalgia page for some cool stuff I did as a kid.

I find it’s a great way to be creative and learn new skills. The possibilities are endless.

I’ve made my own winch out of a servo mounted in the bed of the truck under the tool box. Ran tubing to the front of the truck for the line. I made sway bars you can disconnect but you don’t have to remove any thing, just loosen some set screws. Below I put pictures of my adjustable pull pal/land anchor. Not real scale but I think it just looks cool. Plus mine is adjustable. You can pick different angles depending on soil/rock conditions.  And can’t forget the scale tools and shovels.
