With the release of the brand-new Arrma Kraton 8S, we were lucky enough to get our hands one for a test drive and review... and what an epic car! The Kraton 8S is a massive 1/5th scale beast that is packed full of features and can reach speeds up to 90km/h. We’re going to break this review down into the three main categories of any RC car – electronics, maintenance and durability. Let’s get into it!
Because the Kraton 8S is a large 1/5th scale RC car, from the electronic point of view there are certainly some new products, running a full Spektrum system including the DX2E Active transmitter and SR6100AT AVC receiver that allows you to add telemetry functions. With the Spektrum radio system and some additional sensors we have a huge range of telemetry available to us, making it possible to keep track of things like ESC temperature, motor RPM, receiver voltage and drive pack voltage

Click here to check out the Moustache Model Works DeHavilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver on our website.
Build your own DHC-2 Beaver
Building RC model airplanes from kits are making a comeback in the RC hobby. Nothing can beat the satisfaction that comes from successfully flying a model you built yourself! Unfortunately, most kits today were designed in the days before modern CAD systems, leaving much to be desired in terms of parts fit, ease of assembly, and at times even basic engineering.
Moustache Model Works was established to address this growing niche in the hobby market. By applying modern 3D CAD to the design process, they create kits that remain true to established design and construction principles, but that ensure accurate parts fit, ease of assembly, and scale fidelity. The result is a kit that's a joy to build as well as to fly.
