Getting bigger all the time....
« on: August 17, 2015, 04:58:10 PM »
Hi fellows in R/C land, Hu5Tcho (the 5 is silent)  here joining the group for a bit of fun and info sharing. Comin at ya's from Newcastle. Had many r/c's over the last 30 years.
 Started with a Tamiya 4wd Big Wig and then on to a Tamiya Avante 4wd. Got the nitro bug in 2001 and still have a Traxxas 1.25 TMaxx.  Not showing any signs of maturity I then purchased a Traxxas Revo 3.3. Nice machine that is and plenty big enough too.
 But something was still lacking size wise and upon watching the odd you tube vid on 1/5 scalers got me into the hobby shops some more where I spotted the Losi  and HPI range.
 Well that was it, and courtesy of Mr tax mans return, I placed a deposit on, and just waiting for it to arrive, the brand new RTR version with radio and new 29cc engine, Silver and orange and black Losi 5ive T.
How good will this be! Sorry for rambling but I'm like a schoolkid again with his first Real Coke yo-yo if you know what I mean. BTW I'm 48 and still act 18. So there you have it and I will see yas out there sometime. Play safe now. Hu5Tcho.
P,S. the Kids have a Traxxas 4x4 Stampede each and they are into them like me.........They are addictive. bye for now.

Hi hu5tcho, welcome to the madhouse, might want to look at a kill switch for it, killer Rc is great, but unfortunately doesn't work well with avc. Mixed reports with them, I'd get a kill switch though, cheap insurance

Thanks lads again, and for the tip Baja Dan for the kill switch. Sounds like a necessity really and makes you wonder why its not built in already.
Yep NZ420 and atmmak5, the body is slowed, eyes are squinting and view this text through new glasses, and a mysterious bulge has now replaced what long ago used to be a six pack! I think too many six packs contributed actually.
Well gents, The shop called today with the good news that Mr Big had arrived! Went to the quacks first as I'm off work with a bad virus (so has the whole family) to get checked out and get a doctors certificate, Then off to the hobby shop to pick it up. Bloody big box i can tell you!
So off home and open up the first box, see another box inside so pull out the second box. Open up that and well you can't help but be amazed at the shear size of these things! A big grin was on order and even the missus smirked. As I'm in schoolboy heaven again, checking out Mr Big at all his angles, I could hear the missus thinking........... then it came out, "I hope this is the last of the toy cars for a while"! she muttered. "Toy cars" I say & "yes my love" is what I retorted.
Good wife my missus. She didn't even ask how much it was!!!!!!!!
So that's today's events and I have some pics that i will post when I work out how. Thanks guys, bye for now. Hu5Tcho.

Thanks Oxy. It's a change from the white or black. I was ready to get a white one and when I seen the silver, and it's also RTR, I chose this option instead. So just add fuel and away I go!

G'day mate. Just weighed it then with no battery or batt cover. Oh and no dirt or mud (lol) as It's still brand new unused at this stage. 16.8kgs. Plumper hey?
This is bog stock out of the box for everyone else reading.

We are weigh-ting! Ha ha.
Seriously though, I am surprised at how heavy they are and the vids I've seen of
people jumping these things 8 to 10 meters in the air and they just keep on going.
Very impressive stuff from such a big machine.

Well, i just weighed mine in, came in at 18kg even. thats with stock battery, ready to run, minus fuel. i did also upgrade a few parts for heavier duty bits, and some for weight saving.
