Kyosho has another re-release on the way, as these shots from the Tokyo hobby show (via hobbymedia.it) reveal. The original 1983 Beetle was based on the Scorpion, which makes it fitting that a Beetle re-release would follow the successful Scorpion re-release. Predictably, the car looks fantastic, and you can count on the improvements Kyosho made [...]
We don’t feature flying models frequently since this is RC Car Action and cars don’t fly (unless you jump them…). But when a car brand takes to the sky, we like to check ‘em out. Dromida debuted with a 1/18 car lineup (see our March 2014 issue for the review), and has now added two [...]

Since the B44′s debut, Team Associated’s four-wheeler has gone on to win three IFMAR World titles and four ROAR nats wins–so yeah, it works. Newly updated as the B44.3 Factory Team kit, the top-shelf buggy is now built on an aluminum chassis for an even lower CG, and the chassis’ specially machined design and new [...]
