One day I was out walking with my girlfriend we discovered this dirt bike track (see image underneath). So yesterday I was out driving with my RC car, and it was a lot of fun to jump around. Even managed to nearly break one of the dog bones in the car. So need to fix that.
I also had to buy a new controller and receiver, as I drowned my old one.
Underneath you can see another small car I bought. It’s a 1/18 Smash by ECX. I bought it defect from Smallsize for under half the price. As the receiver and ESC was defect. My plan was to use my old brushless ESC and engine to beef it up. Sadly it turned out that my ESC had broken down, and later when I bought a new ESC it turned out the engine where also broken. So by buying this cheap defect car I ended up using twice the money on a new engine and ESC. Luckily I can use those parts in other projects. I’ll probably try them out in a boat.
I was supposed to blog about my life and how my RC car and boat are going, but it seems like the day is running out of time and I’m busy with something else. Sorry. Enjoy this remix by Aivi and Surasshu.
There are a lot of cool bikes in Oslo in the summer, and I saw this parked outside where I learn Vietnamese. Vietnamese you ask, my girlfriend is born in Vietnam and so they speak a lot of Vietnamese when she is home. So I thought about learning it to learn more. I’ve just started, so we are working on all the different sounds and the different diacritics.
When I uploaded these images to the blog it was still a week and a half left of my vacation. So I’m going to do one more “Last part of the summer” post before the summer is officially over and I start working (which is the 13th).
Bubble tea has become rather popular in Norway and I’m starting to like it. At least the ones with either milk, yoghurt, or slush.
I got a dinner for two at “Ett glass” from a friend of mine as a birthday gift. They burgers was very good, and so was their dessert too.
I have been wanted to buy myself a 3DS XL for quite some time now, and earlier this summer I bought myself the Pikachu edition you can see on the top. I had origianlly wanted the bottom one (Animal Crossing). Sadly they where all sold out, and the store said that it would not return. So I bought the Pikachu one. Then a couple of weeks later I got an e-mail from CDON that they had gotten the bottom one back on storage, so I went back and forth a week. But as you can see I ended up buying it. So now I have two XL’s! Did think I would ever buy two.
Lasagne, do I need to say more?
As you may know I play a miniature game called Heroclix, and this figure made a pretty cool shadow. Heroclix art?
One of my neighbours ride around on this cool bike.
I spent my weekend at my cabin. The weather was switching, but I had a ton of fun with my new RC boats! When I bought the boat I wasn’t sure how fun it would be, but man. It is! I even think it’s more fun then my RC car (sorry).
