    Hi there. My name is Robert, and I've had a long history of R/C stuff in my 40 years. Both car and plane, albeit nothing advanced. I joined because I have a problem with one of mine I can't solve (will make a thread soon). My current fleet is:

    Planet Toys "Truckin' Nissan Titan pickup (2006)
    Picked it up at a garage sale several years ago. Body was in rough shape, and last year I gave it a new paint and decal job, and LED light package (head and tail lights, and ground effects).

    K D Toys (?) Ford Aeromax semi and trailer (IDK who really made it, but it's a knockoff of the Tamiya one)
    Another garage sale item. When I got it the steering was damaged, but I managed to fix it. It had some gaudy stickers on the truck and trailer, and around the same time I customized the Nissan I did it too, including making a flatbed out of the box trailer.

    Radio Shack Flame Thrower 2
    Got this for Christmas 1994. It's had it's motor replaced once, and earlier this year I also gave it a new paint job (to replace a custom one i did in the 90's XD) and lights and found another for parts. Controller is pretty beat up though.

    Here's a pic' of the above 3 at night (the lights run off a separate battery):

    Radio Shack Porsche 962C
    My brother got it for Christmas in 1989. Still runs great.

    Odyssey Galaxy Seeker drone
    Haven't used it much. Need to get another battery for it.

    Have several smaller cars and a helicopter (needs new battery) I'll post later, including another smaller Porsche that's older than the Radio Shack one and still runs. Also have the Planet Toys West Coast Customs Cuda you see in the picture, but it needs a controller (another garage sale item).

    Besides that I also collect railroad items, model trains, insulators (some of which are visible in the photo), model planes and vehicles (incl. a few customs), and other toys.

    I'll see you around!
