When you’re ready to enter the world of 4×4 remote control vehicles, nothing we have tried yet compares to this bad boy!

In this Redcat Racing Volcano EPX 4×4 Review, we take you on an in depth journey into what we call the absolute best four wheel drive vehicle in this price range.

What you get with the Redcat Volcano is a true hobby grade RC that performs as well, or better, than RC’ costing 2 & 3 times as much.

We had an absolute blast bashing the Volcano around on it’s first day with us and it continues to perform just as well today as the day we brought her home…Well, the day Amazon dropped her off. πŸ™‚

We include a video of the Volcano in action on it’s first run as well.

As I write this article, Justin is working on a super cool video where we mounted an Akaso Brave 4 Action Camera on top of the Volcano for some super cool FPV action.

Look for that video coming soon. I can’t wait to see how it looks. You can go directly to our YouTube channel with the link in the sidebar.

We have thoroughly enjoyed bashing the crap out of the Volcano.

It runs great on any surface and the 4×4 capabilities make this one of our all time favorite RC’s in this price range.

DJI Mavic Pro Drone Review

DJI Mavic Pro Review - Fly More Combo

When it comes to the world of drones, few brands can compare to DJI.

The Mavic Pro is designed primarily as a camera drone, but gives you plenty of opportunity to experience the thrill of high speed, high altitude flight as well.

We have been flying drones for years now and we must make this clear right from the start. We have never had a drone that fly’s quite like the Mavic Pro!

The almost near perfect stability of the camera for video and pics is unlike any drone we have ever seen.

The drone itself hovers in perfect stability due to the satellite positioning system built into the Mavic. You can completely let go of the controller and the drone will hover in near perfect stillness.

The Mavic is packed with features that will satisfy any RC enthusiast. From absolute beginner, to the most experienced pilot, the Mavic delivers features that will thrill everyone.

Here are a few features:

  • RANGE – The Mavic Pro can venture up to 4.6 miles away from you!
  • RETURN TO HOME – Get over the fear of losing your drone!
  • 4K VIDEO – Record video in true 4k at 30fps
  • PORTABLE – Fold it up and hit the road!
  • SENSORS – Hey…Stop running into stuff!
  • INTELLIGENT FLIGHT – Want the Mavic to follow you? Let it know!
  • EXTENDED FLIGHT TIME – Up to 27 minutes of continuous flight per battery!

We now have 100’s of flight miles under our belt and have had zero issues with the Mavic Pro so far.

If you’re considering a drone, we highly recommend you check out our full Mavic Pro Review by clicking the button below. We love everything about the Mavic and we know you will too. And of course we included an awesome video in the review. πŸ™‚

Sharper Image Flip stunt RC car review

The Sharper Image flip Stunt Rally 2-in-2 RC Car is a neat little toy that can be used indoors and out.

This RC is a great way to introduce young kids to the awesome world of remote control! πŸ™‚

The car 360Β° spins, has cool LED headlights and does flips.

When the car flips over, the other side is a completely different color. It’s like having 2 RC cars in 1.

While the Flip Stunt Rally Car is primarily designed for kids, don’t be surprised when you find yourself wearing out the batteries cause you can’t stop playing with it!

OH…And the cats love it too… πŸ™‚

Rage Spinner Missile Electric Rocket Review

rage spinner missile electric rocket review

The Rage Spinner Missile Electric Rocket is a super cool, super fun toy rocket that comes fully ready to fly.

The rocket features 2 launch modes:

  • Low – Keeps the rocket under 30′ of altitude
  • High – Sends the rocket soaring into the 50’+ altitude range

The missile has cool LED lights on the side that look awesome as the missile spins through the air. This looks really neat at night!

So far the rocket has proven much more durable than thought it would be.

After over a thousand launches, we haven’t broken anything yet and the rocket still fly’s the same as the day we got it.

It still makes me smile every time I watch it take off! πŸ™‚
