Only had time to get the bottom half cab done but tonight I am putting some little touches and paint it with some of my wifeís acrylic paints the front grill and wipers they came out pretty nice! Tomorrow Iím going to do the top part of the cab candy yellow and then tint out the windows with hexes then clearcoat this baby and see if I can get her on the rig by this weekend! BUZZZZ....

Im about to do a proper Video with this BEEast and am going to switch the rear servo To the internal spool Reefs 800 smart winch and see if I can configure the Reefs micro winch in the front to fit a DSM micro servo mount that's pretty tight so if not i have to wait for a Shapeways order that has a front servo winch mount that is super compact but lets see what Works and also beelieve it or not I may switch the front Reefs 777 for the new Holmes Hobbies SHV800 other than that the Rig is pretty stout and very capable im also putting the Holmes SHV800 so I can use 4s on this rig and see what what's different.... BUZZZZ......

Out to the rocks for some real action to test these babies and get 2 videos of each at 2 awesome spots at Percy Warner Park in Nashville TN...... the HoneyBee Rescue Rig is a little heavy and may need a little weight reduction but she is rocking the Holmes Trio Magnum Crawlmaster / BRXL ESC & Soon The SVH800 Servo and 4s Lipo should make this a rescue machine and the tell of the hive will tell ASAP...... BUZZZZZZ. BACK. SOOOON........ BACK. SOOOON........

BUZZZ CRAWLERS its been a long time I had a lot of good time to be at the bench working and crawling and that's this weekend and im diving in!!!!!

After testing this rig several times im going to swap the winches and move the Reefs Internal Winch to the front and build a front axle for the rear and use the triple 4 servo mounted on the axle and also remove the brass diff cover and replace with RC4WD aluminum diff cover also going to remove the LCG battery tray to give room for the rear axle mounted servo and replace with a link rod so should be an easy fix going to try to finish it tonight wish me luck!!! BUZZZZZZ.........
