In Topic: Dodge Challenger Hellcat 1/25th

I've heard that about the HP, and in some cases, that sounds more like rear wheel horse power than at the crank. Put a tune on it for E85 (maybe with bigger pump and injectors) or race gas and it could be seeing 900hp in otherwise stock trim!

Yeah, same here. I'm the same way with Losi's (well, anybody's really) 1/5th scale gasoline burners......very, very cool, but expensive ($900-$2,000), too big for the space I have to run in, plus not as useful as one of those Phantoms with the camera!

They have arrested half the 70's and eighty TV  stars . LOL 

And I have to wonder how many have since been on Law and Order, SVU with all the up and coming actors :P

Thanks for the info Joe, as I guess I didn't realize how pricey they can be.

I know, believe it or not, we have sold a surprising number of them and even had the Geneva F.D. asking about one with FLIR to check for hot spots at fire scenes and search and rescue duties.

WOW! That's a scary site. BTW Joe, how much would one of those copters set a person back?

Depends on which one he has, the one with no camera is around $400-$450, with a basic WiFi camera that can transmit to your phone we sell for $489.99, the one that holds a GoPro and has a gimbal like the one in the video we had for $960, then we also sell one that has a WiFi camera mounted to a gimbal with a WiFi range extender (also transmots to phone) mounted to the controller for $1150 (and that just dropped from $1300!). These all have a GPS based return to home system so that if there is a problem (like if the transmitter dies mid flight), it will fly back to where it started and land. I've been told there is a $1300 model that you can program in a flight path and it will fly that path completely on it's own, so he could have programmed that one to fly up and down his block if he wanted to.
