any of you guys into remote control stuff like airplanes, helis, cars, boats? I have a couple of gas airplanes, electric cars and a little helicopter..not too good with any of them..but it sure is fun..
I had 4 Tamiya cars a while back. You seen thos X-mods that Radio Shack sells? My co-worker bought one at lunch on a whim and it's a lot of fun.
I was in RS the other day and the guy in there tells me this local kid figured out that the motors from electric tooth brushes run at 100,000 RPM and he puts them in the X-mod cars for speed over 40 MPH! 1:25 scale car going 40 MPH! He burns the bearings up left and right though.
They are stil a little too expensive at $50 a pop IMHO.
i'll bet you could get the yard done fast with that one..haha..A nearby RC club has an event every year where they all bring out their creations like that..some of the stuff is pretty wild..last year i saw a flying comode seat..
