RC Cars anyone?
« on: August 05, 2021, 06:20:41 AM »
Got myself a starter kit. It's a Tamiya. Always wanted one when I was much much younger. Figured it's not too late. Looking at the many options/upgrades, I can see this becoming an expensive hobby specially with so many options out there. So many brands too. Also looking into picking up a Traxxas since it already comes prebuilt with everything except a battery and charger.
iPhone 12 Pro Max 256 GB Pacific Blue
Samsung Note9
Samsung Z Fold 3 for work
Alienware R13 2017 GTX1060 Oled
Macbook Air 13 thin, light and unapologetically dated, yet I use it more than my Alien

Most are doing stuff virtually
RC where popular back in the day when forms of entertainment where limited
Had a few when i was young pero yung mga battery operated lang hehehe

That's an expensive hobby haha!

But I imagine there's never been a better time than now. Lithium battery tech is miles better than the old Ni-Cd and Ni-Mh stuff.

The Avante 2011 was my dream RC back then...I would still love to have one now.. Was always in Nova Fontana just to have a look at those Tamiya RC cars.


I also like the realism of the RC4WD Gelande Defender 110 in Camel Trophy Yellow.

Got my Traxxas Xmaxx last August 2020. I broke the servo in less than a month. Mag 1 year na hindi ko pa na re-repair. Lol
