    Considering the beating that the e-revo took from those bad landings, the fact that nothing broke is a real testament to the toughness of the e-revo!

    Yeah, Which brings up a subject that I've been meaning to post..

    I just got an ERBE, and I'm waiting for lipos, charger, etc, etc, to arrive. and was wondering why the ERBE does'nt have some kind of roll bar, like that seen on nitros.

    Are these motors,electronics, and such already protected pretty well as is, or is this something that should be of concern?

    The wing and front body mount take the brunt of most hits , I was flying my E REVO at a buddy's house about 7-8 feet high and about 20-25 feet long , several bad landings and it drove away every time .

    Unless your hitting really solid objects the R REVO in general is very tough .
    At WARN 80% and climbing !

    Ya, the Slash owners were bragging about how durable their trucks were until one of them broke a skid plate and I started landing all those jumps wheel side up and nothing broke.

    If you run without the wing don't ever forget to put the body on, one flip onto the top will eat up your motor wires where they exit the top of the motor.

    Nice site!!

    Like Nitro said after leaving the jump if you brake of let off the throttle the nose will come down. If you give it more throttle the nose will come up. You can correct in the air for better landings.

    If you listen to the guy shooting the video it sounds like the ERBE was trying to do a front flip, which would explain all the lid landings. Sounds like he knows how to correct in the air.

    Ha, I just realized how true the 'correct in the air' statement is. I didn't know how possible this was until this session. I was amazed at how I could control the ERBE in the air by throttling! That's not to say I'm any good at it.

    But ya I was trying to do back and front flips.

    You can also control the truck by steering left and right.

    That looked like alot of fun. The E-Revo took a ton of abuse! What were the slashes running? Were they stock?

    Yes my e-revo and the slashes were completely stock, i think i'll stick to stock and just upgrade with stock as parts break, cheaper and alum can still break or move breakage deeper into truck
