Big Rig RC Video - scale/realistic terrain
« on: June 16, 2017, 00:33:03 »
I just happened to be clicking around on YouTube and I came across this awesome video showing off some very realistic RC Big Rigs along with a scale environment to drive in (roads, construction site for dump trucks, etc).

RC truck action and Mercedes SK stuck at RC Glashaus! BIG R/C FUN! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gw8ntyRb7_8
"Hello IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again? ... OK, well, the button on the side. Is it glowing?... Yeah, you need to turn it on. Err, the button turns it on. Yeah, you do know how a button works, don't you? No, not on clothes." - Roy (The IT Crowd)

Those videos led me to build my own custom 6x6 Tamiya Globe Liner and extended Tamiya flatbed trailer. I'd like to get a lowboy trailer and excavator but they are big money.

Thanks. Here's a couple pics of the Tycos on the trailer for size reference.

Nice. Do you have little ratchet-straps for them too? Either way, your truck looks great!
