This is part two of my adventure from yesterday. I was racing my 1/5th scale RC Losi 5T when an unfortunate roll over broke my front control arm. Of course being the "Murpheys law" hobby that it is.. it broke at the furthest part of the race track - away from my shop. My truck weighs approximate 46lbs - and with a bad back - and some track work to do anyway - out came my skid steer.
The Radio Control setup was done by a company called Torc Robotics - and was an available option for me when I was purchasing the new machine. My old skid steer had blown a head gasket, and warped the head - and being 8 years old.. I traded it in to the dealership (Finning) for CAT.
I am still fairly new at operating this machine , as I just got it mid season last year. But, I have logged about 10-15 solid hours of RC time on it.. and Im starting to get the hang of it. It is much different than operating it from inside the machine. In fact, its another whole dimension! A lot of folks ask me if it is more fun to operate from inside, or outside.. and I can say each of them are amazing. But, being outside the cab, and watching the entire machine - I dont have to worry as much about bumping around.. and can move much quicker than if I was in the cab. Either way.. Its pretty fun.. and lets me work with aback injury. Its very helpful around the ranch.
