Well, I had a free minute so I went back out to the same spot today...this time without the fear of impending doom from the heavens. Here is a short video:


Keep in mind, I've only been using a stick radio for a short while...

Oh, and sorry for the shaky vid at the beginning...it was windy!

Thanks! Yeah, I'd need to narrow the tires to narrow the wheels. I have thought about it, but I really want to run it a while to see if that is necessary. I'll probably run this width for our first comp...

BTW, I figured you'd like that song...

Oil? Seems not to want to squat when pulling, but that is something characteristic of the Alien chassis.

30 Wt. The lack of squatting could be the idiot with the Rx. I need to fiddle with the radio settings. The rear throttle is not setup the same as the front. I wish I could set the Expo for both sticks, but you can only do that with Aileron and Elevator...I need Elev and Throttle.

Left stick is all front (vertical is throttle, horiz is steering), right stick is all rear (verticle is throttle, horiz is steering)...and one switch with both throttles mixed.

That Radio setup takes some getting use two but once you get the hang of it you will love it for sure.
If you put a pretty big throttle curve on the rear and some expo so the rear is almost lazy for the first 30-40% of the stick it makes it a ton easier to drive.
I know on all my trucks I load the rear really hard all the time and without the curve and expo it is very easy to over power it.

Yeah, I like the stick setup....it's simple and easy to remember. Thanks for the tip on the rear throttle.

Thanks man! It does need a bit of tweaking. I am picking up a new skid for it this weekend from Ripper7777777 and a set of delrin links from a local guy and I think it will be bulletproof then. You are welcome to drive it! Maybe you can show me how it's done!

Wow man, that thing is clean clean! Can't wait to see it in Galv!
Your video skills are impressive too, nicely done. I liked the little transitions.
What's the ratio on those cantilever arms? 2:1?
And sorry, but I gotta ask... have ya jumped it yet?

Haha....not sure about the arms.

Sadly, I havent taken it of any sweet jumps....

BTW, the video skills are all software.....I use Pinnacle to edit my videos and it is easy as hell. Just drag and drop everything from video files to transitions and text screens.

So where is the picture of Ebony and Ivory together holding tires? You don't keep them on separate shelves do you?!
