We’re no stranger to big ideas, but hosting our first competition to celebrate our one-year anniversary was something new… and frankly a little intimidating. We can’t thank everyone enough that came out to support, have fun, and try their hand at taking home some of the prize money! For those who couldn’t make it out:Continue reading “Anniversary Competition Recap”

Tennessee is full great places to run RCs. Whether you are into racing, bashing, crawling, or scale trail drives, there are plenty of options around. We are often asked about good places to take RCs out, especially during the week and for those who are just getting into the hobby. Whether you are new toContinue reading “RC Crawling in Middle Tennessee”
We always encourage folks to support their local hobby shops (we purchase from Family Hobbies, Extreme Hobby Shop, Mach Speed Hobbies, and Cookeville Hobbies), but on occasion we all succumb to the on-demand economy and order parts online. These are parts and accessories that we’ve actually ordered from Amazon and use at RC Field Days.Continue reading “RC Parts and Accessories We’ve Tried from Amazon”
