Can not believer there is a documentary on RC Car racing. Indoor on carpet.

Not heli related but thought that was interesting.

I lived in New Hampshire for 15 years before I moved to the valley. Saw that show and recorded it last month on DTV. Excellent break down for sure. I can say first hand that the level of competition in carpet and nitro buggy/truggy is at the level of military contracts. These guys don't play. That video was dead on for the most part. Very cut-throat world when you put wheels on your RC. Was funny, I know half the companies they named from living up there. They are buried in snow half the year so indoor RC is about all they got. And they're SERIOUS about their fun time.

Once you try steak, is hard to go back to hotdogs.

I just watched it. well most of it. ok ok some of it. dry, but so to the point. Nobody wants to learn something for a hobby. RC anything wont be mainstream tv, ever. Big sponsors? yeah...might as well have a race on the moon, with the drivers in florida. Make the cars like real cars, have an rc plane (or blimp for that matter!) do a fly over. It will still be a handfull of mostly guys, in a hotel convention space. Just like IRCHA is to us, even as big as that is or XFC. Never going to be a general public crowd draw.

Sad that the sheep of the world miss out on something so fun. /sob

If you think carpet is bad check out onroad and nitro offroad. You think we're obsessive? HA!!!
