Colin's Radio Control

Hi and welcome to my radio control website.

In the mid 1980s I had a keen interest in radio controlled cars and spent endless hours modifying and racing my Tamiya Frog car. I then started to get into nitro powered cars but it proved to be too expensive for me at the time and I lost interest.

In 2016 due to a number of factors that I won't go into here, I am starting to rekindle my interest in nitro radio controlled models.

Initially I intended to have some fun with cars with a view to progressing to planes. This has now expanded to include Helicopters, Multi-rotors and Hovercraft. With the advances in battery and motor technology over the years I have also drifted back to electric power.

I will post pictures, videos and articles on this website relating to my endeavours.

If you're interested in model planes then check out my Fathers website

Keep checking back for updates.



FreeCAD files


  I have started using FreeCAD to design parts for my models. I will be making some of these available for download from the site.

  One of the things that I found useful was to create parts objects for things I use in my models (servos, prop guards etc.)  I can import them into the FreeCAD drawing of the part I am designing to see how they fit.  I will be making these available for download also.  They are available as .step files so I guess they could be used in a number of 3D CAD packages as well as FreeCAD.

  So far there is a SG90 9 gram servo and a DJI Phantom 2 prop guard.  You can check them out in the FreeCAD section.
