    The RC Cars/Planes/Boats/Helis thread

    I actually combined two zmr250 frames I had.. used the arms from the one in the photo because they were a bit beefier and had holes that matched the motors better. The current quad is under 400g dry, iirc.. but I can't recall for sure because I'm not at all good at remembering numbers. It now...

    The RC Cars/Planes/Boats/Helis thread

    quads! I started flying this year. This is the old quad.. the rebuilt version I have now will have photos at some point. that silly integrated pdb was heavy and eventually had a short that caused a crash. I bought that pre-built, so it gave me a good excuse to build a new version.

    2011 BMW F10 550i M-Sport

    I like this angle.. I found another Carbon Black 550i M-Sport to park next to at work.. e60 :) my two cars.. the m3 hasn't been washed in a while, and some of the paint's clear coat is peeling, but it's still fun :D - - - Updated - - - so I enabled the rear fog. Of all of the cars I've...

    2011 BMW F10 550i M-Sport

    exactly. I don't need this car to cost me more money or to leave me off the road any more than it will already. If I could have more fun with a daily... I wouldn't have bought this car. I'd have a Porsche, or a 3 series, or a GTI, or an e34 M5.. etc.

    2011 BMW F10 550i M-Sport

    the engine is pretty quiet.. only really hear it at the upper-half of the rev range, and it's still not very loud. I haven't had a chance to feel out the engine through the rev range yet. :( No performance mods planned. I just replaced the headlight switch with one that has a rear fog button...

    2011 BMW F10 550i M-Sport

    I'd still highly prefer a manual.. it'd feel so awesome to control this thing with a clutch and a stick. It's hard to get a feel of the engine's power curve with 8 speeds and automatic shifting. It's still a pretty sweet car though. I've put almost a thousand miles on it so far. It's...

    Show us your Lego!

    ooh.. that one looks pretty cool. I still want the Caterham Seven set as well.. just because. That's why I bought the Lego set.. I can't help but want it, and I knew I'd regret not having it years from now. I bought 42046 a while back.. haven't built it yet, but I though it looked really cool.
