    RC truck excavator transport! THE OTHER WAY! (<8-minutes)

    I got a reply back to my comment on the video about whether this system is real or not. It’s the real deal and is made by a Finnish company. Very impressive!

    I have no idea if this method is used for real in Europe or if the modeler just came up with a clever idea and built it.

    From what little information I can find on these RC trucks and construction equipment; the hydraulics are real and run around 175 PSI.

    I was just mesmerized by this. I never realized that there was RC equipment like this.

    This might be a heck of a hobby for someone like me.......

    My son and I used to race RC offroad trucks and also on road cars. The amount of realism in them is incredible. They have all the adjustments as real cars and you can really tune them for racing. I think this construction equipment stuff is really cool. Wish I had time to get into it.

    That stuff is pretty amazing. The scale RC equipment is very real and yes pricey. I think last time I looked a nice metal hobby grade excavator like that one it was north of $3K. They run hydro pumps, multiple motors for the tracks, controllable lighting, sound, etc.

    I would like to get my hands on some of the large tires for a static model I'd love to build; but I haven't had much luck finding stuff in the USA. This garden scale RC truck and construction equipment seems to be a German phenomenon From what little I've found online the bigger toys start around $4,000 and goes up from there.

    However, Tamiya does have 1:14.5 scale (bizarre scale) trucks in the $500 range. I've seen stuff on this guy's channel from 1:8 (1-1/2" = 12") to HO (1:87); but 1:32 (3/8" = 12") seems to be the smallest that regularly shows up.

    Some of the RC cranes that show up on the channel are downright amazing.

    It is.

    I was also blown away by the real deal excavator transporters.
