I have an RC boat which according to a radar gun actually hits 32 MPH with LiPo batteries and an RC chopper. Still learning how to fly and handle the chopper.

LOL....the Enforcer. I haven't seen one of those in years.

I have quite a few RC toys. Bunch of trucks and cars. Mostly 1/10 scale on the trucks and cars. I do have one 1/8 scale nitro truck.

Those 1/5th scale trucks are huge and you really need a lot of wide open space or a designated track to run them. They are not at all suitable for running in the front yard or in the street in front of your house unless you live in a rural area.

Dude that scarab rc boat is sick where did you get the hull at and the electric out boards.And your other boats are sweet to the 1/5 is fun like I posted I race at a buddies track behind his house he lives on 5 acres. You have to have a lot of space to run them and there are not a lot of tracks around mostly because of the liability if you get hit with one.Truck weighs 40 pounds so getting hit with one wouldn't be fun.

I bought my son a traxxas stampede 2x4 monster truck and upgraded to the brushless motor when the stock one blew. That shit hauls ass!!! It's almost too fast. We run it at the park. spectacular jumps off the pitchers mound.

I've been into RC planes for a while now, got pretty serious into the gas giant scale 3D. The Yak 54 is a 91" wingspan (1/3rd scale) and had a 55cc 2 stroke gas engine which was a lot of fun.

A few of the others, yes they all fit in my Forester when I was moving. The orange one was a 71" Slick (25%) electric, had a power system that pulled about 90 Amps and did roughly 2400 Watts. Got about 7.5 minutes of very hard 3D flying out of it on a charge.

Nice I race at a track in Ocala called shady oaks raceway not trying to rag on your gizmo motor but once you go OBR there is no going back next season starts in October.Any 1/5 is allowed to run long as it has a kill switch and stock can exhaust or silenced pipe my buddy has a facebook page for his track this is no redneck track all clay over 30 loads to build it.He use to race atv's so the track is bad ass there is between 4-8 people that come to the track we are always looking for new people to join us the track is behind my buddies house once you see it you won't go anywhere else.
