+I'm immediately struck by two things:
- The power:weight ratio of modern hobbyist RC is insane. Those rigs look like they can easily flip on acceleration.

Very high performance brushless motors, best lithium polymer batteries @ 34V and controllers capable of routing more than 150A.
Easily over 5 horsepower, of electric power, on the red rig.
btw, the red rig is north of 30lbs. running
