Have you ever heard of Dude Perfect? Have you ever heard of RC fishing? I had not until a friend of mine showed me this video. Dude Perfect are very popular for their various YouTube videos and described themselves as “5 Best Friends and a Panda”. In their latest video installment they got into the RC’s and had a “RC Battle”. These guys aren’t RC professionals, but they sure know how to have a good time. Check out the video and watch the good times and mayhem ensue.

Traxxas High-Current Connector
There has been a lot of talk, rumor and speculation over the years regarding how unhappy Traxxas were with HobbyKing, because of the HobbyKing designed “Traxxas Style Connectors”.

The Pro-Line 14RS Dakar Rally Clear Body, is her body of choice, she likes how the lines flow and that it is different from a truck. Her vehicle of choice is the versatile Traxxas Slash 4×4. This is a photo post of my wife’s second attempt at painting a RC body and her first time using an airbrush. She wasn’t happy with her first attempt, due to the paint not being pink and more of a fluorescent orange. Pink paint in a spray can is hard to find around here, so when I switched to using an airbrush, she immediately began thinking about mixing red and white to get her desired pink. I was impressed with the outcome and happy to know that I wouldn’t need to paint another body again. She will share her thoughts with you in each picture. Continue Reading
