    Rc-Mountain Hike n.125. , Larrunari hill. Direct ascent.

    Five hundred meters of elevation in this rise of a total of 1000 meters that has this mountain hike.
    It is a steep slope in which there is tied to drive the car with a small safety line , the falls are not allowed.
    Often at stops is necessary to support the car on a stone or foot, because leaving it parallel to the slope side, was to overturn.

    Trail known as "Lightning slope.", Is the second time I get to climb this hill with my Emaxx.

    -
    Highlighted trail for Emaxx. 500 meters of height gain.


    Approach to the shortcut path.


    In full ascent, on a break .
    Look at the rear tires resting on the boots. In the middle of the slope, more people.
    below, the standard path .


    Huts of shepherds


    Curious collapse of the hillside


    Leaving the "Lightning slope."


    Ops, Driving license, please? ! . Really it was a nearby mountain rescue.


    Returning to the normal path.The descent in same direct way is harder than the climb,
    I did it once and I will not go down there again.

    # 126 Trail. A Scenic trekking in Pyrenees.

    I will not put many pics of my Emaxx on this hike, it really was not relevant towards the magnificent scenery

    Well, a long Rc-hike to my Emaxx . There are 22 km (13 mi.) And a slope of +800 - 600 m.
    It runs through Ordesa National Park in northern Spain.

    Starts up at the Hunters Trail, gaining very quickly a 600 m height through a leafy forest to the lookout spot of Calcilarruego (1950 m) with stunning views to the unique Ordesa rock formation.

    Next follows "Faja de Pelay" a protruding terrace in the rock wall, and descends again to the head of the valley to the "Cola de Caballo" waterfall.

    With me, wife, son and our dog Lyra.

    Ordesa Canyon as seen from the Hunter Trail.


    The beginning is a very tough climb for a well done, but very dangerous, path. Usually closed from October to June.


    A nice section of rock near the Calcilaruego Lookout, to nearly 2000 m


    Section particularly vulnerable to falls, with some broken steps .


    We can see the spectacular path followed in the top of the cliff, among the fir trees.


    After 10 miles, we began to descend to the valley head.
    The mountains are Monte Perdido , The Marbore Cylinder, and Anisclo, all Over 3300 m


    End of the upper trail, with signs of dangerous path and forbidden access after 3 PM.


    'Cola de caballo' waterfall.


    Fabulous way back through the valley and the meandering river.


    The trail passes very close of Soaso falls and then follows the river until the end of the tour.


    I hope to return in winter !!, although not by this route

    Bored to check battery voltages?, Tired of the lipo Cut off?
    This allows you to see comfortably "on line" voltage of a LiPo battery and cells.
    With this location inside the bumper (RPM), you can put on and off the body,
    without risk to balanced cables or connectors.

    Lol, this motors seems more and more the engine of the Saturn V and its pipes.
    It's hard to know how many miles he has traveled, 600? 1000? , enough to need four pairs of electric motors, 24 tires, 3 pairs of steel Cvd, much more plastic CVD, 4 clutches ....
    I think that the only parts that I have never changed are: the ESC, shock towers, steering servo , center of the Chassis and, of course, same desire and enthusiasm to get out every Sunday!!

    I like the front bumper

    May I ask: Why do you still use the white plugs ?
    Have you considered changing to the TRX plug ?
    Is it 'cos the motor draws so little amps that they still work ?

    Keep on trailing

    That's right, Integy 45T motor running 11v I do not think he needs more than 10 A, and in the specialty of Rc-Hike, no matter if the resistance is 0.04 or 0.006. Out of all the standard connectors that I used in 6 years only burned one.

    Trucktrial. I know the white connectors still work but I would still recommend switching to traxxas connectors for your batteries and motors as they will lower resistance and keep dirt or corrosion build up to a minimum. So you will get longer runtime lower heat and greater consistent power.

    After 6 years of mountain hikes with my Rc. I return to the Picos de Europa mountain range in northern spain
    and try to climb one of its highest mountains.
    It's a long route, so the pictures will divide along two or three post.
    We passed the first thousand meters with a cable car that leaves us in front of this landscape.

    Ascent to the peak 'Peña Vieja'.

    Part 1.

    The first thing you do is move towards the Col de la Canalona.
    This Spanish word indicates a rather abrupt and stony couloir, then we'll see why.



    Soon we reached a mountain slope, fortunately in the shadows





    We met several hikers that go to the other col of Horcados rojos.


    Up! giant grasshopper.


    rocks, rocks and more rocks, from behind us seem not to know that the path has just begun.



    we have not even reached the first turn!


    Bottom left is the main path going down the cable car (TE)
    right to Horcados Rojos Col (HR) , and we continue to Canalona pass (PV trail)
    The emaxx up perfectly, with two fans at top speed and a 9.6V 5400 mah battery.


    This is where we started to really enjoy, the climb is really hard,
    My emaxx seems to be in their natural home.



    Something is wrong, I am terribly tired, I stop often to rest and the sun burns me.


    Will continue in next post.

    Ascent to te Peak "Peña vieja"

    Part 2.

    We came to a hard part, to the mountain pass that is seen in the background.
    The soil is quite broken and sliding



    This is the path we have been following, with some difficulty for my Emaxx.
    We are very close to a rocky channel "La canalona"



    Between rocks break a rear linkage. Replace with Spare part takes me half an hour,
    everything seems more difficult in these conditions! smaller screws, tools harder to handle..


    We are more than 2400 meters high and this is the beast that I intend to climb with my Emaxx.



    I approach a side slope with traces of snow, we are in June



    Steep slope in which the Emaxx rises up better than me.



    in the middle of the slope, at the very limit of what we can ascend without help of hands on the rocks
    and driving an RC monster truck.



    Point of abandonment, 100 meters from the top due to a flat rock steps, exposed to falls.



    highlighted path to the first rocky cliff that I was unable to overcome with Emaxx.



    On the way back, this is the top view before starting down the rocky channel "La Canalona"



    will continue...

    this looks like ???..



    What a curious thing I discovered about the emergency shelter located at 2325 m high!

    Let's see more closely,


    A photo of the interior



    Another from the outside...



    And finally one of its original location, one of the turrets.. ahahahahaha!!
    indeed, its origin is in dismantling of


    USS Palau (CVE 122) was a Commencement Bay class escort carrier of the United States Navy.

    After these excursions, rather difficult and long, I will walk through a well-known mountain near home.

    Rc-Hiking 128. Mt Ernio.


    -
    Climbing while the clouds seem to want to keep the valley asleep.

    -
    Easy rocky area near the hillside


    It's hard to find more beautiful trails in this area.
    practically the whole climb is in 2 nd speed, except the final section.




    This is the first pass after which comes a break


    The cross on the top, there are countless areas of limestone to be playing for hours, spend a full battery up and down


    Reaching the top.





    In return, the sheets of clouds have disappeared and the valley wakes

    n. 132 Rc-hike
    L´Aiguillette Mountain, from 1750m to 2517m altitude.

    Excursion with my Emaxx in August, then under a very hot environment. The walk begins in the Spanish-French border at the southern mouth of the tunnel of Bielsa. Go up a grassy slope with difficulty because the grass was overgrown and grazed the bottom of Emaxx. Then follows a climb on a rocky channel and ends at the crest of two peaks.

    Starting the hike


    looking for a zigzag pathway for the Emaxx. My son takes the direct


    beautiful rocky area

    .


    We continue on a riverbed slate because it is easier than the grass


    Someone said easy?

    .





    L'aiguillete Peak

    A fantastic route in the company of my family and my hobbies!

    133 Rc-hike -Añisclo Canyon-

    August
    My son (yellow helmet) practicing canyoning


    I queuing to cross a bridge, but do not mind waiting a bit, we're on vacation.



    This trail runs along the first few miles of Añisclo Canyon, parallel to the river upstream and gaining altitude.

    View from a lookout point, the path is partially visible along the riverbed.


    Initial part of my N.133 mountain hike

    -

    -


    sometimes the trail remains very close to water
    .
    -

    Would not it be easier to say what is allowed?
    Fortunately the car antenna is not about RC ...

    YOU MAKE ME TO JEALOUS. I never even seen places like that, let alone run my truck there.

    Although I do have a friend who runs a pet shop and he almost called the guys and the padded van when I asked what leashes he had that i could put on my truck for our trip out west next summer

    Just wait, before long it will say "Welcome to our national park, to help preserve our park please view from the gate only, all other activities prohibited. Have a nice day."

    We have signs over here that pretty much say that.
    "Public land, preserving land for our future, area closed no trespassing, trespasser's will be prosecuted!"
    "Paid for by taxes for Public Land for our future."

    Love the Topaz blue of the streams, thanks for sharing.
    Look out for the tree/crunch!

    #134 . Excursion to Lake 'Bassa de la Mora'. Plan, Central Pyrenees.

    This is a very simple hike made the previous summer.
    So easy that we had lost while looking for an alternative path that seemed to exist only on the map.

    Start of the mountain hike.

    -

    Curious marks left on the limestone


    This is the normal path..

    -
    Everyone follow


    Reaching the lake, we continue the shore


    Who did that?. It was an avalanche?


    On the other shore

    -


    This side of the lake is quite hard for emaxx, progress is very slow.


    The left path seems to disappear as soon as you move away 100 meters from the signal,
    however, we stayed more than two hours!! trying to find the continuation

    Nº 135 trail. Monte Perdido National Park.

    Excursion to the waterfalls of the river Cinca, Monte Perdido National Park. Central Pyrenees mountain range. Northern Spain.
    Over a year ago I did this morning hike with my son , with awesome views of the valley and a trail of medium difficulty but very fun.

    8 am. The desire to reach the falls were better than the weather


    And my Xbox , where my Xbox!!!?

    -
    The three waterfalls of the river Cinca.

    no, this time not break anything, but I'll think of something in the next hike, haha ​​..
    we had fun with the dog, just run like crazy behind the car when I do go fast. if I go slowly, the dog is behind me.

    a question, want to mount RPM True track
    are compatible with the mip cvd 2.5?

    Currently use in my Emaxx 3906
    -Shiny MIP CVD Kit T-Maxx 2.5,
    -RPM Axle Carriers w / Bearings (15mm) Black T / E-Maxx
    -RPM A-Arms Upper / Lower Black T-Maxx 2.5R/3.3 (2)

    What other parts need, apart from RPM True Track kit, so I can install?

    If you are going to the RPM true track you wil have to also use the newwer axles as the 2.5 cvd's/axles will not work with them.
    But MIP does make CVD's for the newer Revo spec drivetrain.
    Look out for the tree/crunch!

    Wildman4910, Only the axles of the new emaxx, or also the turnbuckles, stub axle, hex hubs ...? can you detail the parts that I have to order, for conversion to RPM True Track in 3906 model?

    Trail nº 135, 1300 m ascent!

    Ascent to the Balcony of Pineta with a Emaxx , is not easy. Partly because the 1300 m level to be surmounted, and then because some sections between rocks near the wall is somewhat dangerous to walk distracting with the Rc. Was for me a hard tour, not fully completed due to the proximity of bad weather at an altitude of 2300 m. However, as on many occasions. walk through these magnificent mountains, is rewarding enough.

    The first kilometer is a track reserved for mountain rangers, we are in Monte Perdido National Park.
    We see the initial and final altitude


    Further the path is very narrow, with abundant vegetation, mostly ferns,


    Cinca cascades, visited in the previous day's excursion.


    Near the first waterfall. For now, I've spent two pairs of batteries (2 * 4200 + 2 * 3600 mAh at 7.2v)
    motors: 2 Integy 45T in parallel, esc EVX , geared 12/72


    Going up a stretch of limestone with Emaxx well guarded and very close to my boots


    Hard section to climb, and quite long.


    Bottom of the Pineta valley


    My dog waiting for the rest of the family


    A difficult step.
    I point rear guards, two simple pieces of PVC that avoid many bumps and cracks in the central part of the rear links.
