Though it’s not an car, truck, or boat, this walking hexapod robot is still technically a surface vehicle! Standing at over 9 feet tall and weighing nearly two tons, it’s also the largest of its kind anywhere in the world. Built by Micromagic systems and powered by a 2.2-liter turbo diesel, with hydraulically actuated legs that look they’re straight out of an Erector set, a true RC fanatic can’t help but wonder what it would take to build something like this using servos…

About the authorAssociate Editor Since receiving my first hobby-grade RC car as a holiday present from my father nearly 20 years ago, I've been fortunate enough to meet more people and experience more opportunities through the adventures I've had in the RC industry than I would've ever imagined. I've done it all - from working at a hobby shop, to being a factory sponsored racer, to working for some of the biggest brands in the industry. I've enjoyed each and every one of the dozens of kits I've built, hundreds of events I've attended, and thousands of laps that I've logged at race tracks around the world, and my passion is to share those experiences with other hobbyists so that they may find fulfillment in their own RC careers.
