    Anyone have any of these?  I fly rc aircraft and am considering getting into the hobby.  How are they, speed, etc.
Thanks

I got a Duratrax St for my son for x-mas.  It lasted less than one
week.  First problem was that the plastic on the outside of the
slipper got so hot it fused itself and the slipper to the spur gear
(it had to be chissled off).  The diferential gears also stripped out.
I'm still waiting for parts to repair it for 2 weeks. Also, most of
the truck is held together with phillips-head self-tapping screws not
nuts and bolts and they seem to come loose quite often from the
vibrations.  
 -  I'd look elsewhere, maybe the RC10GT RTR if I had to do it again!!
