Video Competition Winner for August 2011

Hi there,
I have the winner for August!! We had some fantastic videos this month and believe me, it wasn’t easy to choose just one video. After careful consideration I have decided to awarded the price of £100 to Filbo and his stunning Bug Crusher Nitro Remote Control Monster Truck video.


We love this video here at Nitrotek, well done and enjoy the price.

I would like to share one more video that we received in August. I like this video of F16 64mm RC Jet Vectored PNP It’s not easy to film a Jet and this video is almost there, keep trying and you just might be the winner next month.


We love to watch your videos so please keep them coming in! And one more time – congratulations to the winner and a wishes of better luck to the rest.
Thank you and have a great day.

Video of the June 2011

Hi Everyone,
We had a real problem picking this month video. It wasn’t because of the sheer number of them, right the opposite, and we have decided not to give the price this month. There have been couple of good ones, but unfortunately anonymous. Here is one of them featuring Backwash Pro:



The Backwash Pro is the ultimate nitro radio controlled car with many hop ups included as standard, you can get it for £199.99 here.

Another good one posted in May featuring ShengQi 1/5th Monster Truck by Craig Hollis.



ShengQi FORD F-150 Petrol Remote Control Car Read More Here.



The £100 will roll over to the next month, yes £200 to be won next month so please if you have any good ones upload them and don’t forget to add your name and email address.

Thanks and Good Luck
Team Nitrotek

Nitrotek’s April Video Winner Announced

We had some interesting entries last month featuring tanks, radio controlled planes, a buggy, the FS Monster Truck and our ever popular XSTR.
The winning entry for April comes from Toby Abram who sent us a video of his XSTR rc buggy, though we certainly don’t recommend driving your buggy straight into kerbs at high speed, this video does show both the speed and the resiliance of this model, and why it is so popular. Of course if you do cause crash damage you can order a full range of spares from our website to get your buggy running again! So congratualtions Toby, you have won £100 worth of Nitrotek credit, and here for everyone to see is your XSTR putting up with some high impact usage. If you fancy owning an XSTR then you can order from our web site by clicking here as you can see it’s a great looking buggy and yours for just £89.99 including UK mainland next day delivery!

Another video we received last month featured our Dynam Extra 330 performing some amazing aerobatics, unfortunately the maker of this video didn’t enter their details so I’m unable to credit them for it. This video shows just what can be done with this rc plane which costs under £120 with everything you need (other than 8AA batteries for the transmitter) to get it airborne! If you’d like to have a go with one of these then click here to visit our website. Anyway sit back and enjoy this video.

So let’s see your May entries coming in, we’d love to see some rc helicopter videos, and more tanks. Edit them, put them to music, roll the credits and get them uploaded. There’s £100 of Nitrotek credit up for grabs each and every month, so what are you waiting for!?
