Welcome to Part 3

Well…well…well…we have reached the last post of my RCX 2016 “Experience.” Still lots more to take a look at from some of the top brands in RC. Let’s take a stroll through some more awesome photos from the event.

Traxxas

Traxxas brought out a few interesting features to RCX 2016. The lovely ladies, a real dragster, trailer, music, RC’s, and race legends Courtney and John Force were all present at the Traxxas booths. They even had the Erevo that is responsible for the World Record long jump on display. A DJ at the Traxxas area was spinning tracks the whole day, which made for a jamming RCX 2016 no doubt. Let’s look at a few pictures from Traxxas’ section at RCX 2016.

Courtney and John Force were signing autographs at the Traxxas booth and created quite a line. Lots of racing fans out there in the RC world I see.

Traxxas also had the bash pit setup for some hands-on action.

Pro-Line Racing

When it comes to tires, Pro-Line Racing is top of their game. They also have some very awesome upgrades for a variety of RC styles. The list does not stop there either, Pro-Line racing also carries 3 different RC kits for the taking as well. Check out their website @ http://www.prolineracing.com/

Pro-Line had a nice booth setup at RCX 2016 and a lot of staff present to answer questions and showcase some of their new items. I finally had a chance to meet some of the good people at Pro-Line Racing, something I had looked forward to for a while.

Rich from the RC Network was at the Pro-Line Racing booth with one of his custom rigs. He was a nice person to meet as well, and his rig was well put together indeed.

Here are a few shots from the Pro-Line Racing booth at RCX 2016.

Pro-Line Racing had a lot of new RC bodies, tires, and accessories added to their line-up. They always bring quality and great customer service wherever they are. 🙂

 

RCP Crawlers

RCP Crawlers had a pretty nice scale crawler section at RCX 2016. If you had your rig present, you were allowed to try your skills on their nice looking setup. Here are a few pictures of their booth, and if you would like to see more of RCP Crawlers…@ https://rcpcrawlers.com/

 Robot Throwdown

Some of you may have seen the show Robot Throwdown on YouTube or TV. They were in the house at RCX 2016 showing off a few of their builds. Here are a few shots of the Robot Showdown booth at RCX 2016. If you would like to see more of Robot Throwdown, check out some of their YouTube.

I would hate to get hit in the ankle by one of these bad boys. Very interesting work by the Robot Throwdown booth.

 

Hitec RCD USA

The guys from Hitec RCD USA were present at their booth and taking care of any questions about the products they offer. I have a few Hitec servos in my rigs, and I am pleased with the product. Check out Hitec online @ http://hitecrcd.com/

Horizon Hobby

Horizon Hobby had a massive setup at RCX 2016. Lots of variety and almost all of their product line on display in the booth. Each of their brands had a section and RC’s were on display to check out. Check out the layout from Horizon Hobby at RCX 2016. See more of the planes, truck, cars, and other RC’s from Horizon Hobby @ Horizon Hobby.com

Battle of the Builders (Sponsored by Scale Squadron of Southern California)

The Scale Squadron of Southern California was really showing off some nice scale planes. The craftsmanship that goes into these builds are superb. I can only imagine how long it would take to put one of these babies together. One thing I know, they look good in person. One that stood out was a Church Racer by Lawrence Klingberg, who scratch-built it from 85 year-old plans and powered it with a DA 85. Awesomeness! Check out some of the shots I was able to grab at their booth within RCX 2016.

I managed to get a shot of the man himself Lawrence Klingberg! Dressed for the day indeed.

West Coast Mini Truckers (WCMT)

Here is where I spent a lot of time asking questions and checking out the sights. The West Coast Mini Truckers had a very wonderful scale layout and a lot of rigs, heavy-equipment, and tractors on display. I almost had to stop myself from taking pictures; I have had a fetish for a scale semi for a while! Very knowledgeable and pleasant to speak with the guys from WCMT. They let me know everything I needed to get started and enjoy this field of RC. Soon and very soon…I will be scale hauling! Check out WCMT on the web @ http://www.westcoastminitruckers.com/

They also have a Facebook community as well, check it out WEST COAST MINI TRUCKERS COMMUNITY

…and that is a wrap! All of my worthy photos spread out into three blog posts for you all to enjoy! I hope that you could see just how nice a trip to RCX 2016 can be. There was even much more than I was able to capture at the expo, but I think this about sums it up well. I do have some video coming soon of RCX 2016, so make sure to subscribe to the YouTube channel @Radio Control Patrol

It has been a wonderful time indeed, but it is now time for me to close this post and hop off into some more RC action here at the RC Patrol shop. Stay tuned for more RC action and have a good one! Signing off,
