Spring is in the air! Well it is here in the UK where we’ve actually seen the big yellow thing in the sky for the first time since last October! – And it seems also for Horizon Hobby who have produced a short compilation of Planes, Boats, Cars, Drones and Helicopters, all basically pointing out that very soon we can leave our homes and actually enjoy RC outside!!
Now despite the title, this is not a video of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse sporting some natty Pro-Line gear or outfitting their steeds with the latest off road rubber based horseshoes! – It is however a look at the latest Pro-line body shell!
We’ve lifted women, raced lolly sticks and now we bring you RC Boats on land! Horizon Hobby have put together this short video of ProBoat “Blackjack 29″ running on snow! What next a monkey driving an RC truck? Lionel Messi crowned RC Acrobatic helicopter world champion, you’ll just have to come back here and see what we find next!!
Team Bianchi Racing has just announced the arrival of the latest evolution of the engine for model cars, off-road Bianchi TBR 3.0. The engine is completely “Made in Italy” , and is assembled and modified by M.Bianchi to ensure the highest quality. Which is good news as looking at the picture I was slightly concerned that it came as a kit, and I’d have to assemble it!!
I’ll be honest, I am not very up on the various model numbers in the Tamiya range, so news of new limited edition TA06-R left me a bit cold – Is it a competition machine? (“No those begin TRF Nick”) A mini chassis (“No those are M03 or M05 Nick”) a Front wheel drive? Rear wheel driver (“No those begin, er hang on ah I see what you mean Nick”) It is apparently a 4wd 1/10th TC sort of competitiony with some optional parts taken from the TRF418 and TRF417 such as the Carbon Shock mounts and and drive shafts.
Also included are the anti-roll bars optional and the pulley aluminium central taken from the TA06MS. This competition kit (intermediate) – Ah thats what they call it – needs electrics and a body to complete!
