I have just bought a toy i have always fancied having a go with, a HPI Baja buggy type of off road car, 26cc petrol pull start, it weighs a LOT, and is capable of up to 60mph, over anything, but am i insured as i am with the plane stuff??

I am going to phone the office anyway, but just wondered if anyone actually had experiance of this type of thing, its a powerfull car, lose it, and someone could get hurt, not that i have any intention dont know

try sticking a pair of fins on the roof - if you have a mishap, tell them its a new experimental flying car design that you couldn't get airborne !disgust

Richard, believe me, this thing will fly,

Andy thanks mate, i was hoping you would make an appearance

Dale, mine is a cheaper version of this one in the link, as everything in the world, mine is a chinese copy, but all parts swap over, and the nice thing, the Baja hop up parts all fit,

Got a few 26cc cars. Mainly because it gives me something to play when I can't fly. Also it's still rc, even though it doesn't fly. They're heavy, though and although there isn't insurance, don't want it to hit a leg - it will break it!

Got a FG marder, FG Touring car and a Nitrotek buggy.

Good in snow; Nitrotek (fg clone in snow)
