RCX Show

There was just so much stuff there it wasn’t funny. Anything RC (air, land or water).

This show is prety much aimed at the consumers and there were at least 6 different demonstration/trial areas. Kyosho had 2 Mini Z tracks to demonstrate their cars an off road and an onroad one which looked like it came straight out of GT4 or Gotham Racer.

There was another section which was an oval track setup with donated cars and was used for the public to play to have a go with the cars, the durface being slick concrete meant that drifting was the go.
The most impressive RC (land) track of all was the full on dirt off road track that was used to demonstrate 1/8th and 1/10th scale buggys and Mini T’s at times. The most impressive part of the track was a massive jumped that launched 1/8th scale cars about 25 feet into the air.

For the air RC enthusiast there was an area set aside to demonstrate helicopters, planes and some prety freeky flying machines.

Another impressive thing was the man made lake in the middle of the hall which was used to demonstrate RC boats, while I was there Billy Easton and Matt Francis demonstrating a Horizon hobbies boat managed to them beached on the only place possible in the middle of the lake.

Exibitors included all the major rc brands, Associated debut what is likely to be their new TC4 Factory team car, Novak showed off their new competition brushless speed controller currently in use at the Reedy Race by a lucky few. Much More where showing off the brand new motor cooler and battery warmers plus their full prodruct range as well.

All in all very impressive, some photos to come soon.
