    The RC Newb Podcast – Episode 72: An Overview of CarryAll RC’s X-TRA Backpack

    The RC Newb Podcast – Episode 72: An Overview of CarryAll RC’s X-TRA Backpack

    It's a new year, and what better way to celebrate than by talking about the R/C hobby? I've mentioned CarryAll RC and their lineup of crawling and trail-focused backpacks in the past, so I figured it was time to give an overview of their X-TRA 3 Combo Backpack.







    In addition to that, I want to find out what your hobby plans are for this new year. Are you a new hobbyist that's just getting started, or a seasoned pro who's planning to go big?







    I've got my own plans for my hobby time and most of them focus on upgrading and massaging my current lineup of machines. Of course, I'm not ruling out a new vehicle or two...should the opportunity present itself.







    As always, thank you for listening to The RC Newb Podcast and enjoy the episode!

    The RC Newb Podcast – Episode 71: RGT Adventurer V2, Xotik XC324, and FliteTest Mini Sportster

    The RC Newb Podcast – Episode 71: RGT Adventurer V2, Xotik XC324, and FliteTest Mini Sportster

    In this episode of the podcast, I'm focusing on two smaller-scale R/C vehicles that I'm currently reviewing. The first is the RGT Adventurer V2 which was provided by the folks at Banggood. This 1/24-scale crawler has been a fun addition to my growing fleet of small crawlers and can hold its own against other heavyweights in this category.







    The second vehicle that I'll talk about is the XC324 Manga Spirit from Xotik. This R/C car looks like the popular Mini 4WD from Tamiya but has the added ability to be driven just about anywhere. From the track to your kitchen floor, this car has provided for some much-needed breaks during my current work-from-home scenario.







    Lastly, I wanted to give you a preview of what's currently on my workbench...an airplane. I've been helping two of my sons build an R/C airplane as part of a Boy Scouts merit badge, and it's provided some unique learning opportunities for us all.

    The RC Newb Podcast – Episode 69: Talking “Flying Cars” with Dave Hill & Trenton Waterson

    The RC Newb Podcast – Episode 69: Talking “Flying Cars” with Dave Hill & Trenton Waterson

    It's not often that I get to chat with folks in the film industry, so when the opportunity arose to chat with the director (Dave Hill) and producer (Trenton Waterson) of the upcoming film, Flying Cars, I knew it was something I couldn't pass up. The R/C hobby isn't often highlighted in mainstream media, which makes Flying Cars unique right from the start.

     Throughout our hour-long chat, Dave and Trenton shared their experiences with the hobby, what challenges they faced while making the film, as well as their feelings on finally being able to release this film to the viewing public. Much to my delight, we even managed to squeeze in a little chat about 1/10-scale and small-scale crawlers.

    The movie will be released for purchase on Tuesday, May 19 through AppleTV/iTunes (pre-order is now open), Amazon Prime Video, and Google Play.

    Show Notes:

    The RC Newb Podcast – Episode 68: DIY Small-scale Crawling Courses & Obstacles

    The RC Newb Podcast – Episode 68: DIY Small-scale Crawling Courses & Obstacles

    Small-scale R/C crawlers have come into their own in recent years, and with models such as the Axial SCX24 and Carisma MSA-1E, you can replicate the fun of 1/10-scale crawling just about anywhere you go. When you aren’t able to wheel your tiny truck outside, there are plenty of ways to build your own indoor crawling course or set of obstacles.



    In this episode of the RC Newb Podcast, I share a few of my favorite materials and approaches to building scaled-down crawling terrain.

    Show Notes:



    Redcat Racing continues their busy 2020 with the release of the Wendigo rock racer.

    The RC Newb Podcast – Episode 67: Diving into the Carisma M40S and Pro-Line Pro-Fusion SC 4×4 Kit

    Once you've popped the lid on the R/C kit-building experience, it's hard to turn back. Such has been the case for hobby experience. Following my Tamiya Grasshopper project, I've been on the lookout for new kits to check out. Over the past few months, I've been focusing on an on-road machine from Carisma and an off-road blaster from Pro-Line.



    In this epiosde of The RC Newb Podcast, I'll share my thoughts on both of these models, as well as the experiences that I had building them.

    Show Notes:



    Getting my on-road fix with Carisma's M40S kit.

    Building a track-ready short course truck with Pro-Line's Pro-Fusion SC4x4 kit.
