Help All Hobbyists: Urgent Notice – Your Immediate Action Is Needed

The crew at are big fans of Tower Hobbies for all our hobby needs. We just received an email from them that could eventually affect all of us in the Radio Control and Rocket Hobby. Here is what the email stated:


Many people are concerned with new government regulations that are designed to limit our hobby industry. You’ve probably heard about the new FAA regulations limiting our use of R/C airplanes and proposed shipping bans for R/C batteries.

New regulations are being considered regarding model rocket motors. This may not immediately impact your particular hobby but it’s just another step toward regulation of materials used in hobbies and deserves your attention.

The US Department of Transportation (DOT) has recently advised read more

Best One-Liner of the Month Award goes to….

The one-liner of the month award goes to the Brother in Law of our man room pal Jake. Seems Jake’s B-I-L was traveling to upstate NY and had just exited the Thru-Way in one of those little podunk towns.  As he exited the off ramp (perhaps a wee bit fast) he sees an officer of the law standing next to his cruiser on the side of the road.

What you should bring to the RC (Radio Control) Racing Track

This article was written by Glenn Cauley ( and used with permission), an RC racer who is a great guy. Glenn is into Motorcycle racing now, but I have found this article to be invaluable in prepping for an RC race. It was written about 8 years ago and  I have also added a few things as time went by, and you are welcome to add items in comments and I will amend the article.

Great driving tip

The most important thing in racing ANY cars is to know you or the car will never be fastest EVERYWHERE on the track. Learn the parts or corners where you are the fastest and tune your car to be even faster through that section and drive the slower parts as well as you can. Be consistent, stay out of traffic, don’t crash and you will be on the podium more often than not.
