The RC Bucket List

Aug 05, 2011 14 Comments by

I keep hearing about bucket lists and there was even a movie on the subject that I have yet to see. I get the concept. Bucket lists are fun and worthwhile for sure. I made and lost my own bucket list when I was in college. Mine had some of the staples I hear all the time such as skydive or something or other. How about an RC specific bucket list? What would make the list? Here are some of my suggestions; let’s see what you can come up with.

> Get sponsored on any level–full ride, 50%’er, hobby shop

> Run in a national level competition

> Drive an RC car across water

> Do a loop with an RC airplane

> Jump an RC over a building or full-size or from building to building

> Go over 100mph

About the author

About Matt:I think it’s safe to say I’ve done a little bit of everything in RC. That said, I predominately race off-road and my current passion is short course. One of my all-time favorite classes is oval carpet racing. Besides racing, I can often be found working on one of my many never-complete projects, and it seems I have an ever growing collection of rock crawlers—specifically scale crawlers.
