I got into this hobby back in 2012 to get away from Web design, which had been my prior, self-proclaimed “hobby”, not to mention what I do for a living. Even with those best intentions, I’ve fallen into a trap. I keep creating more websites and setting up more social media channels to help promote these sites. The cool thing, however, is that these sites are all R/C-related, and they help me enjoy the hobby, even when I can’t take my vehicles out for a spin.
A project that I’ve wanted to get off the ground for some-time, finally saw the light of day this past weekend. SmallScaleRC.com went live, and I’m very happy to tell you about it. Much like RCNewb.com, it will focus on the radio-controlled vehicle side of the hobby, but with a twist.
Shortly after I picked up my first (and only, to-date) 1/18 scale vehicle, I fell in love with the mini and micro side of the hobby. I love every aspect of the hobby, that’s true, but there was something special about these smaller vehicles. The ability to drive them anywhere, and have something that I could let my kids drive around without worrying about trashing hundreds of dollars was appealing. Channeling the same desire to share how awesome these miniature machines are, as I have done with this site, I went about setting up a new project.
SmallScaleRC.com will focus on vehicles ranging from 1/16 and smaller (down to 1/36 scale). One area I’m especially looking forward to is letting my kids share their thoughts (through my writing) on these cars and trucks and what they think about them. It’s a fun, ongoing project that I’m happy to have taken the wraps off of.
