Why Your Girlfriend/Wife Hates RC

Why Your Girlfriend/Wife Hates RC

Going by the statistics and facts, RC is a male dominated hobby.  RC appeals to guys, and a handful of girls, but generally speaking (if by “generally” we mean 99%+) this hobby is filled with dudes.  Dudes who love to spend money on RC, tinker, build, wrench and race RC cars. Girls tend to enjoy […]
Explaining RC To The Masses…Good Luck

Explaining RC To The Masses…Good Luck

When I tell a stranger or acquaintance that racing RC cars is my hobby, I usually get one of two reactions. One reaction is often a quick widening of the eyes, a smile, and an eager conversation about how they once owned an RC car…you know, the one with a gold tub chassis, what was […]

The Path To RC Enlightenment

The Path To RC Enlightenment

Perhaps I over-think things, but I’m convinced that there are 3 stages in the life of an RC racer.  Much like the “Seven Stages of Grief,” there seem to be 3 stages of RC racing.  No matter from what region, state, country or province you hail, these stages apply to you if you’ve ever raced […]

Happy 4th of July!

From all of your friends at Air Age and Radio Control Car Action, have a safe and happy 4th of July! Much like Memorial Day, I plan to run a RC car today…maybe even one with a sparkler attached to it.  Hmm…the project ideas…. Have a good one, everyone.

Product “Testing” Gives Us An Excuse…

Product “Testing” Gives Us An Excuse…

I’ve always believed that “real world” product tests involve using the product in question as much as possible, and then reporting the results.  Product destruction isn’t at the top of my list. Still, I couldn’t help but laugh at our friends over at Big Squid when they posted this video of their Futaba 4PL “durability […]

The RC Industry: We Are Family

The RC Industry: We Are Family

I had the privilege to meet Mike Reedy for the first time many years ago at an IFMAR Worlds event, and although I didn’t know Mr. Reedy as well as many in our industry, I knew immediately that Mr. Reedy was a kind hearted man of character.  In the RC racing industry, Mr. Reedy was […]
It’s Memorial Day!  Drive An RC Car!

It’s Memorial Day! Drive An RC Car!

I’ve made up my mind: I’m driving an RC car today.  It’s Memorial Day, and most people think of BBQ’s, pools, the start of summer, and (I hope) honoring the courageous service men and women who’ve died for our freedoms.  Being the RC addict I am, I’m going to burn a few packs through my […]

RC Car Wrecks: The Bad & The Ugly

I witnessed one of the most exciting and dangerous nitro buggy runaways at my local track last week I’ve seen in ages.  Thankfully, no one was injured, though this runaway made a large crowd of onlookers scatter like a flock of pigeons after a gunshot.  It got me thinking about some of the more spectacular RC […]
