I’d like to write, that he is the reason, why I’m so involved into RC community. And that he is the reason why I’ve bought my first RC. And I believe that many of you expect this kind of intro in this post. But it is not the whole truth 😉 Sure, I was watching tons of his videos on YouTube and getting more and more interested in this hobby, but the person, who is the reason why I’m so into offroad RCs is….
…Jem 😀 (our guest’s wife). How is that possible? Sandra (sweetworldofs) bought “The Mighty Honcho” because Jem had Pinky, and I bought my Wraith, because I wanted to drive with her 🙂 Surprised? 😉
But as this week’s answers to “5 questions to:..” are not from Jem, I’d like to write a few words about our guest. He is an absolute guru in RC World – his videos are watched by hundreds of thousands, his Top Gear Toyota Hilux tribute (1, 2, 3) is well known not only amongs RC fans, he most definitely is the most popular RC maniac in the World.
But that’s not the reason I wanted to have a chance to post his answers. I wanted it to be some kind of a tribute to one of the people, that through this hobby changed something in my life and had a positive impact on it. That’s why, with great honor and pleasure, I present to you answers to “5 questions to:..” from djmedic2008 !
- How has your RC adventure started and what was your first RC?
My first RC was a Nikko, buggy – from a store named “Radio Shack”. Santa brought it to me when I was 6 years old. It was black and had orange flame decals. I believe it was 2wd, and an AM radio. A great introduction to RC for a 6 year old to learn about how an RC car worked, though it was a toy-grade machine.
- Which RC (that you own or owned) is your favorite?
I love all of them equally! When I bring an RC into my life I am always focused on the specific things it can do. I see each one for its strengths. I don’t even have a favourite “genre” of RC. Air, Land and Water.. I am fascinated by them all!
- What is your dream RC?
Definitely a Full Scale RC Construction unit. Excavator, Skid Steer, Loader or Bulldozer. Bring it on!
- What do you like the most in this hobby?
Another tough question. There are a variety of things I like about this hobby that include Building of RC’s, Running, Capturing my imagination, The creativity of the hobby, the overwhelming community support, and I especially enjoy how folks that enjoy the hobby of RC may at one time be strangers.. but strangers become friends, and friends, are all RC Family!
- What are 4 things that you always take on your RC adventures?
What are 4 things that you always take on your RC adventures?
a) Always a Tool Kit!

c) My Camera
d) A Smile on my face!
