Holiday Season Gifts - RC Cars(Radio-Controlled) are Less Expensive

Posted by AME on Monday , under , | comments (0)

What is an RC car?

RC stands for radio-controlled. An RC car or truck comes in either toy or hobby grade. Let's take a look at the difference:

Toy grade RC cars are less expensive and can be found at most electronics stores.  But if you're serious about making RC cars one of your hobbies, they aren't your best bet. If you're really interested in RC cars, you'll want the hobby grade car or truck. There are lots of advantages to the hobby grade car. For instance, they have tons of available spare parts and upgrades. For a lot of people, they don't just love racing their RC cars--they also love building and fixing it up.

Now that you know the basics of RC cars, it's time to decide what kind of car or truck you want to buy.

RC Cars - The #1 RC Hobby

The kind of all RC Hobbies is the RC Car. Radio controlled cars only move in 2 dimensions (it shouldn't be flying under normal circumstances), they are inexpensive, they can be driven by anyone old enough to ride a bike, and they are easy to repair. The real question comes down to what you expect from your rc car.

Want speed? Some of these cars can move upwards of 70+ mph! Obviously this isn't for an eight year old to play with unless they are extremely responsible and an amazing driver. Certainly it shouldn't be their first car. You can expect to pay around $300 for this type of setup.
Traxxas RTR 1/10 Rustler VXL 2.4GHz with 7 Cell Battery and Charger     Traxxas RTR 1/10 Rustler VXL 2.4GHz with 7 Cell Battery and Charger

The great thing about these Traxxas rc cars are that if a part breaks you're not out $200 or $300.  Traxxas makes a full line of replacement parts for those unfortunate accidents.  Honestly that's why I recommend these cars.  They take a lickin' and keep on tickin'!  Do yourself a favor and spend a few extra bucks and have these cars for the next couple years.  Its a great RC hobby to jump into.

Wanna off-road? Some of the rc trucks have monster tires and can rip through some pretty rough terrain. You can build an obstacle coarse are race your friends. Lots of fun can be hand with this off-road rc cars. Here are a couple products in the $200 price range.
Traxxas RTR 1/10 Stampede with Water Proof XL-5 and 7 Cell Battery with Charger Traxxas RTR 1/10 Stampede with Water Proof XL-5 and 7 Cell Battery with Charger

Racing RC car

Ah, finally, the opportunity to seize and conquer the open road. Well, on a smaller scale. But it certainly can't be denied that one of the appeals of the RC car is that it allows you to go a little crazy--maybe a little too fast, maybe be a little (okay a lot) more dangerous than you (hopefully) are when driving an actual car.

Types of Racing RC car

Oval Track - This is your standard way of racing RC cars--not to say it isn't awesome, because it's definitely a lot of fun. Again, check with your local hobby shop or your RC Club for good oval tracks in your area.

Off-Road - A lot of people enjoy the freedom and fun of off-road RC driving. And it's true--you can go pretty wild with off-road racing.

Drag Racing - If pure speed is your thing and you don't care so much about jumps and stunts, drag racing is for you. Drag racing involves a 1/10 replica of a drag strip. You can buy RC drag cars that will rip across the strip in little more than a second. As you might imagine, they're some of the fastest RC cars out there.

Competitions RC car

If you've practiced racing your car and want to amp up your hobby, then definitely enter a competition. They're a lot of fun and a great way to connect with other RC racers. If you haven't already, join an RC Club and you'll know where to compete.

Best Holiday Season Gift for All Aviation Enthusiasts - Ding Duck

Posted by AME on Wednesday , under | comments (0)

  The Best Christmas Gift you will Present to yourself or to your dear one's this season is
this book that will delight anyone with an interest in Aviation: Full Power Ding Duck

Poor Ding! He’s a duck who just wants to fly, but can’t seem to get it. All aviators can relate to Ding’s misadventures… we’ve all made mistakes, done it tough, had our pitfalls.
What Ding teaches us is: never give up. Should we feel sorry for Ding? I rather feel sorry for his flying instructor!
Ding Duck is just one character in Gary Clark’s “Swamp” cartoon world. In “Full Power Ding Duck” Gary as brought us a collection of over 250 cartoon strips featuring the aviation world and a bird-brained hazard.

Buy it for yourself, or as a present for the aviator in your life. You will love it!
From the preface:
For someone who can’t fly it’s amazing the places Ding Duck finds himself in the Aviation world. He’s a perpetual student having logged over 5,987 flying lessons without once ever taking off. Yet you can find him on countless Flying School walls. His every attempt to fly ends in a mishap or disaster but he has featured in official Air Safety campaigns. He fails all his flight theory exams but he appears in textbooks.

His determination to get airborne despite the struggles, pitfalls and setbacks is what every aviator can relate to. Ding Duck is a reflection of the realities of the irony, pain and love of aviation, which can cause endless frustration to most pilots; yet despite all this we, like Ding, keep coming back for more.

To learn more about Ding and his friends, and to buy this book, visit Gary at his fabulous website, You can also view his cartoon archive and register for a free Swamp cartoon to be delivered to your email inbox every day.

Jet Engine is invented in 1937 by Frank Whittle.

Posted by AME on , under , | comments (0)

The Jet Engine

The jet engine is one of the coolest, most amazing inventions ever designed. It is reliable, converts fuel into huge amounts of thrust, and can be REALLY loud.

It is the jet engine which allows HIGH SPEED, HIGH ALTITUDE flight, getting you to your destination within hours rather than days.

The jet engine take air in the front, burns some fuel,
and sends air and exhaust out the back at high speed. The engine
actually PUSHES this air out the back, resulting in the engine
getting a push forwards.

It sounds simple, but it did not get invented until 1937, by a
bloke called Frank Whittle.
