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!?
These months seem to come around more quickly all the time, here we are at the beginning of April already, and it’s time to announce our March Video Winner.
This month the prize goes to Craig Ellis for his well thought out and edited footage of our 1/5 scale ShengQi models; this video features the Hummer shell and also the Ford. So congratulations to Craig, and £100 worth of Nitrotek credit is yours.
These ShengQi models are all due back in stock towards the end of April 2011, and at the time of writing you can pre-order one and save yourself £20 off the usual RRP. Not only do you save, but it means you’re sure of getting one; these 1/5 scale monsters usually sell within days of arriving! If you want more information or wish to order click this link, and it’ll take you straight to our 1/5 scale page.
So don’t forget to get YOUR videos uploaded for the chance to win £100 of Nitrotek Credit.
The December prize of £100 in Nitrotek credit goes to Josh Thornley for his video of the electric short course truck, the Acme Trooper.
The video shows the truck jumping and flipping and surviving some pretty hard landings! Thanks Josh for the video and we hope to see more from you.
The first video winner of 2011 comes from Craig Hollis who’s used a mixture of stills and video to create this demonstration of our ShengQi 1/5th Scale Petrol Hummer monster truck. All done to the sound track of AC/DC’s Highway to Hell. Craig too wins £100 in Nitrotek credit.

November’s winning video comes courtesy of Andrew McCombie who filmed his FS Racing buggy in a few different locations. Taking off on a ramp, and speeding across tarmac, showing how quickly the buggy accelerates, even in quite small spaces.
It also shows that the FS Buggy is quite resilient even after a hard landing, though don’t forget, we do have a complete range of spares should you have a bad landing with yours!

You may have noticed that the video upload feature on our web site hasn’t been working too well lately, unfortunately the number of uploads we’ve been receiving have been too much for it, so we’re in the process of upgrading, maintaining and getting it ready for November, so unfortunately there’s no prize for October.

We’ll update you via twitter and on the blog when it’s back up again.
