After years of wishing, ready, and watching from the sidelines, I lastly attended an AxialFest occasion. AxialFest Badlands 2022 has been the spotlight of my yr up to now (hobby-wise), and I had fairly just a few grand plans heading into this yr’s occasion. I used to be going to doc, seize, and create a lot content material that it might make your head spin. In actuality, I spent extra time driving (and in some instances, fixing) my rigs and never sufficient recording. Nonetheless, I had a blast and wished to share a little bit of my on-trail expertise.
Having introduced three rigs down for my oldest son and I to drive (two RR10 Bombers and an SCX10 III Early Ford Bronco), I used to be given the chance to check drive an SCX10 III Base Camp due to my fellow Massive Squid RC brethren, Jeremy. Not one to move up a free journey, I set out on “Path A” outfitted with my Carry-All RC backpack, a DJI Pocket 2 digicam, water, and my rig. Take pleasure in among the sights and sounds from my perspective as I navigated via the primary of many trails on the Badlands Off-road Park grounds.
The Base Camp blew me away with its efficiency and on-trail prowess. It additionally wowed among the of us I used to be wheeling with as properly. Talking of fellow path drivers, due to Anthony and Chris for letting me be a part of their duo as we looked for adjoining trailheads (“I” and “J”). The general expertise of AxialFest is one which I gained’t quickly overlook, and I’m very a lot wanting ahead to future R/C adventures.
