Default White Clay Creek Quarry and Excavating.

So after a year and some change into the construction side of R/C I decided I needed a goal instead of just digging holes in my bashing area. Put down 2 "veins" of drainage rock and covered it with 6 yds of fill dirt. Objective will be to strip down to the gravel and transport it 40ft down creek to a ramp. Will make a nice area for the kiddies to enter and exit the creek. First order of business will be to cut the haul road to the top with the D10. This will probably be a slow process so please be patient with progress. Any tips or feedback are always welcome.

Hey Michael, it's a tamiya globeliner that has been cut down. Added a bruder Mack cab, 4:1 reduction, TLT rear tires filled with bb's, and a bruder dump bed with 2 Actuonix actuators.

I mess with just about everything R/C. Tanks, boats, planes, heli's, quad's, basher trucks, crawlers, etc.

Built haul road and took first couple loads out. Had to clear haul road to start off. Operating is pretty piss poor. Had to change out TX's and need to reverse some channels. Vid is kinda long so definitely feel free to skip around though after the first 5 min or so not much going on.

Thanks for the info on the tires.

I as well am into MOST things RC. I DON'T fly anything. Too expensive for me. Has to do with my first helicopter. I spent 20 minutes in the garage setting the trims. I took it out for the maiden flight. I throttle up, it lifts about 6-8 inches off the gravel driveway. All's good, & I'm thinking, I'm really doing this, I'm flying. Next thing I know, the d@m thing turns sideways, & the blades dig into the gravel. Chewed them all up, & swore me off from trying to fly ANYTHING RC again.

I sold that heli, & 3 others (they'd NEVER been flown) to a good friend of mine for the deal of his lifetime! I just wanted to get them gone.

Yup, heli's have a pretty big learning curve. If your not willing to put a couple hours in on a sim it's hard to get great results. Been with you on that. My first heli was in parts in seconds in my garage on the maiden hover. Just have to stay with it and learn from mistakes or others on forums and flying fields.

Easy to miss, not much going on yet. Thanks for tuning in though! Hoping to get the full spread out soon, while we still have good goofing off weather. Unfortunately I'm pretty lazy on learning vid editing so they probably will never be that great.

Right on! Will keep that in mind. Throw a couple racks in the smoker and some chairs and coolers by the work site.
