Rc related gift today we’re doing a quick video to cover a few things that you can maybe pick up and get in really quickly to finish off your rc shopping list, although it’s probably scary to try to order something at this time being so close. Normally small things can ship faster than full size kits like an entire car or bodies, lub takie rzeczy. So some of those small things that you can pick up are things like scale, accessories, nie ma, a bunch of stuff online that that you can find – or you can do like. I did in 3d print and create your own. Those of you who have been around the channel for a while know what this is. I have a few scale accessories that i modeled in 3d printed and created myself, so that’s always an option to get something done really quickly. Another thing that normally ships pretty quickly is wheels and tires. Now you might be squeezing it in, but being that they can be shipped in small packages. Normally they can come in pretty quickly proline. Does their pre glue wheels and tires which are awesome for just throwing them on a vehicle and getting to running, or maybe you just want to pick up a few sets of tires for that person to have on hand be ready whenever they need? I think is a really good idea is hardware, so just about everybody in rc needs hardware, whether it’s losing a screw or making something custom, and you need your own hardware whatever it is.
Everyone always needs something i’m sure. Like many of you, i have a whole kit that i’ve collected over the years, things like dedicated rc hardware kits are really easy to find and normally ship pretty quickly or if you’re really pressed for time. Something like these amazon hardware kits can be really nice. Amazon ships really quickly and the hardware is pretty nice it’s. Tak właściwie, the hardware i use on my bead locks for my drag car tools are always a good idea for rc gifts, to jest, actually how i picked up all of my mip drivers over the years. They were gifts and stocking stuffers. These metric drivers are really nice, as well as the drivers for your drill or electric driver. Another thing, that’s really nice is a tool stand or in this case a tool, stand slash, shock stand. These can be found really cheap and hold all the tools nicely, as well as being able to hold your shocks while you’re rebuilding shots, also a lot of tools and things you can pick up locally at a hardware store or craft store that can be used perfectly For rc and you don’t have to wait for it to come in things like an electric driver. I picked this up from walmart years ago and i’m still using it to this day. It might be time to pick up a new one but it’s just an example of things. You can get locally things like the little snips.
These actually came with my 3d printer, but they can also be found at hobby shops and places like walmart and craft stores. Another really good idea is a set of wire strippers and crimps. These can be found at automotive stores, amazon, lots of different places and are really useful for cutting and stripping wires for soldering and can also be useful, like these have a boat cutter on them. So a very versatile and useful tool for rc some other things you can get locally for all the drag racers out there. You know how it is to go out and set up your track. You start in finish line whether it’s, the timing system or just putting tape or paint on the ground to mark the start and finish line walking out there with a tape measure isn’t the best thing to measure it out. So you could always pick up something like this measuring wheel. It has a telescoping handle and you can walk out and count out the feet. I picked this one up on amazon, but they’re also pretty easy to find at probably something like a sporting goods store. Another good thing you could find locally to fill a stocking would be hobby, knives and blades. I know i’m using these knives and replacing these blades all the time whether it’s trimming bodies cutting small parts opening packages. Anything really these are really inexpensive and can be found at places like walmart craft stores, that kind of stuff and it’s really something that just about any hobbyist needs.
So that could be a really good idea. Another good idea, even though it might sound a little boring, is something like glues. We use ca glue a lot in rc, whether it’s gluing tires or building things with styrene and plastic to make scale accessories a whole bunch of different uses. Sure you can order it online, but it’s also easy to pick up from a craft store in your area. I pick up the glue as well as the kicker from the same place, and don’t have to wait for it to come in if you’re shopping, for someone who does like to build their own scale accessories or make scale models. Anything like that in general. Another good idea is paints whether it’s airbrush paint acrylic paint brushes, maybe an airbrush tape, all kind of different painting supplies all of these can be found locally and are really good ideas for anyone who likes scale modeling, i said i know the holidays are really really Close and you may feel like you’re running out of time. Miejmy nadzieję, this video gave you some ideas of things that you could pick up locally or quick and easy to feel those last minute gifts, even though, at this time, it’s probably best to go out and get some of this stuff locally.
