Before you assume, like I did, that this is a cheap plastic RC excavator, read on.

The 1:14.5 scale RC Despe EC280MG weighs a full 62 pounds of solid steel.  The beast uses 6 motors and 4 rechargeable 7.2V Ni-MH batteries.  The attention to detail is pretty amazing, instead of just spraying on a coat or two of paint they fully powder coated the EC280MG.  Watch the video after the break to see if you want to part with $4,500 (not including the 8 channel remote).

    I AM OVER 50 AND STILL WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ONE OF THESE MACHINES. BUT I HAVE A WIFE WHO DOES NOT SHARE MY LOVE FOR RC HOBBIES, AND ON OCCASION, HAS REMINDED ME HOW MANY PANES I HAVE WHEN I WANT TO BUY A NEW ONE. AND PLANES ARE FAR LESS EXPENSIVE. BUT, ONE OF THESE DAYS, I WILL GET THIS EXCAVATROR.
