  1. Especially Fedex goes on about seller failed to add Vat. Last time i got a copy from AliExpress showing that VOEC number was added, when Forwarded to Fedex the reply was in short «Sorry that you do not believe us now sod off». I avoid Fedex & UPC etc because they far to often have this problem while the deliver company owned by the Norwegian state Posten.no never has it (if in fact Vat was paid in advance)
  2. My daughter was around 5 when i picked up this Hobby again, i soon found out there was no point leting here drive as she would just destroy them right away so i gave here a RC model of Mario Cart to practise inside and she showed mild interest (she showed a bit more interest in the Switch game Mario Cart which also help). So my latest atempt is C.Avante which was a good choice as i find it very robust and can take quite some beating actually, so she have learnt to drive quite well eith this one but the interest is stil vague and would be none existing if i didnt remind here. And the case here is also 10 min focus then its off so i it always ends with me «emptying» the battery. Which is also the reason im not on here as often as i want to anymore, no success getting here hooked, shes 7 now and i do not want to push anymore and she never ask to drive (the C.Avante is on her shelf stil so its not like shes not reminded that it exist). Last hope is my now 4 year old daughter that show some interest in toy cars and tractors etc so Maybe (cross fingers). Either way regarding a good starting RC i think C.Avante is perfect for 6-7 year old that had some practice
  3. Yes, more than one time now i regret giving the controller to my 4year old daughter and desperately take it back from her before she rams into the stairs on playground slide etc. EVEN though its the comical pre-painted Avante with a few hop ups that where built for this purpose, so i even got personal attached to that one and trye to keep it as nice as possible, feel a bit like an old *** but on the other hand they should also learn early to respect things also, but yes for the most part im a old grumpy *** ps: actually that C-Avante can take a lot off beating, stil no repairs after several runs mostly done by my 7 years old daughter
  4. Yet another trip out with my daughter and C.Avante, first run with new Oil dampers so ofc its now more balanced(+ 2 off the stock dampers needed new oil when i replaced them, that did not help either). I tried to take some action shots while she drove, thats not easy.. Its run great with 2s 5200 mah 60c (seems like 60c helped a bit on accelration, my old Lipo 3000 mah had 20c). I miss some adult time with Top-Force :), but its better than nothing though my daughters prefer to play Tag with it rather than drive it, either way it was a bit Tamiya Quality time
  5. This one from Ali is Ok ish, its got a adjustable light and a quite heavy base so it will not fall over, but i wish the arms would tighten up more.
  6. Today i looked at my plan for this Summer, well before i did realise how much work there was to get married in Aug. So this project has been a statusQuo, and do not even ask why i bought some off those hop ups but i do remember having a lot off plans. I will for sure wait to next summer wit paint jobb as i have no suitable space inside to spraypaint without getting a devorce right away. Here is what im looking at:
  7. Only thing is if you want to charge more than 1 lipo at the same time @ a board, each cell need to be exact same volt (or very close) so you need a display to check that before charging. I also like to check now and then if each cell is Ok (if Volt are to low after long storage)
  8. Hope Willy dont think mine its to small though
  9. Took my Daughter out with «TheGrassHopper» today. Later just now i did a litle Damper HopUp Nice dampers
  10. Tired off thinking «hmm what was the best CuttOff again» so i made this note for myself on the lid off my charge Equipment today. Its not only that im getting old but i do not get the time to drive as often as i want to either so i tend to forget
  11. New 60c 2c 5200 mah batteries just had to be tested in the woods today where the snow was almoast gone now. I think she was spinning around for a good 20 min + and the volt was stil over 4 v so i used my ISDT Discharger for the first time, wich has very good quality an can discharge up to 6A, happy with that one. First my daughter spinning around in the Woods, she had a very good time today actually: C.Avante got a much better punch out off the 60c, i know silver cans are not supose to pull much so 25c that i had before should be the same but im quite sure there was more punch now. She had a great time. And my Discharge setup:
  12. @Badcrumble all abaut that kit is Sweet as Jesus
  13. More Hop-Ups from Plaza Japan i ordered under Corona isolation, for my TT-01 Subaru build. Dont even know why i ordered most off this but main plan was just to have a bit fun because that what all Tamiya boys realy want!.
  14. Think i Enjoy this part a bit to much, like a 12years old on X-mas: I promised myself to not buy Hop-Ups, you can see how that went during my corona isolation, more are comming from PlazaJapan . Actually look most forward to painting this one early this Summer (no room for spraypainting booth and to cold in basement, found out the hard way), this Rally car is the one i drive the most @ my Sim Rally PC setup and i love the look off it
