Lights, Camera, ActionCam – Turnigy’s latest action camera boasts a waterproof casing, HD and WiFi, all for under £60 and that includes a range of mounts. Joe Brown wasted little time in finding out what it has to offer us in the RC sector.

Toy Fair Time – The annual Nuremberg Toy Fair attracts many of the leading industry players from around the world. It is great to see all the latest products and new releases from the car and accessory manufacturers as well as catch up with the personnel behind them.

Reviews
Tamiya Fighting Buggy – Tamiya’s Fighting Buggy was the last of the company’s Special Racing Buggy series – one that helped define the whole surface RC industry, spawning a complete genre and in inspiring a generation of new enthusiasts including our reviewer, as we cast a emotional eye over the re-release.

Team Durango DEX210v2 – The DEX210v2 is a good example of improving the breed, with sensible evolution Team Durango has taken their original 2WD platform and made it even better into what we think can be a winning car for all abilities.

FTX Colt RTR – The Colt is a 1:18-scale 4WD electric buggy that targets the entry-level market. Offering blistering performance at a teasingly attractive price, we gave the 1:18-scale RTR from FTX a thoroughly good workout and were not disappointed in the least…

HPI Micro RS4 Rallycross Subaru WRX STI – Rallycross designs combine with the popular Micro RS4 platform to make for a fun-filled packed albeit on a small scale with a lovely replica of the Subaru WRX STI.

Schumacher SupaStox GT – Keen to keep them at the top of the pile, the GT version of Schumacher’s popular championship-winning GT12 car features many updates whilst retaining that sub-£100 price tag.

Price: £4.25
