Default 1000 bucks

Unfortunately 1000 bucks does not go far in the rc world. A guy could probably spend that money 4 or 5 times just making his list. If you are trying to put a rig together for a 1000 bucks it would be pretty hard. I would probably go x2 crt, jr 9100 servo's, new werks b5, dyn 053 or 086 pipe. I'M out of money.
