Wicked Curb Find!!!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
While driving my car I noticed a milk crate by a telephone pole with some garbage, I recognized some of the shapes in the mikl crate. I have seen people throw this type of thing out before, but never with everything with it or its just a frame.

I quickly scanned the content in the milk crate and agreed it was worth taking back for further inspection. Back at my house I took everything out of the milk crate. It was a full RC Truck, well the plastic covers are trucks. I tried doing some research on the ApeX Alpha computer charger, got enough info on how to charge a battery. After a little charge and putting batteries into the radio controller, I tested to see if the RC worked.


I have always wanted a really good RC truck, just never got around to it..

I dont know anything about this scale of RC. Any info on what I have will help out alot, especially when I brake something and have to replace it. With that being said, I think this is a older RC, so yeah, but what ever.

Radio Controller-
AirTronics 2 Channel Digital Proportional Radio Control System. FCC ID AXYATX021 - lol, there is a sticker on it that says 5/96 .. lol.. - I have found images of this controller but no manual and no power cable like in the pic.

2 Truck Skins,
The info I have found out about the body of the RC is that its a Team Associated AE RC. Thats it.

2 Sanyo Pro PAK I
I dont fully understand how to charge these batteries, so far Im doing the 170mA for 16hrs... so freaking long.. wtf.. lol

I dont know how to check the engine or if its good.

Any help would be awesome, I am stoked to learn about RC's and my new hobby.

I have a Church parking lot right next to my house so Im able to wip around in there, its freaking crazy. There is also a Mountain bike park down the road too, but I dont feel like braking this RC right away. lol..

Re: Wicked Curb Find!!!

nice find, kinda blurry but looks like an old Losi xxxT, best thing to do to test the motor is put power too it, motors usually last a long time its the esc that may or may not function being that old....

I have a lot of parts for those if you ever need any.
