I am new to RC. I am looking to buy a RC snow groomer kit. I have seen them on several 'post your home video" sites. I have searched for hours and hours with no luck. Perhaps someone here could point me in the right direction.

Here are the specifics:

I'm looking for a "pisten bully" replica RC snow cat. The machine is a 300 or a new 600 model copy.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Seems to be a VERY VERY difficult item to find !!!!???? :confused:

I'm assuming you are talking about the Kyosho kit?


If yes I can get you one. $288

Thanks...but

Thank you for the reply but the RC unit I am looking for is very specific and are direct copies of the Pisten Bully snowcat machine.

If you go to www.youtube.com and type in the search box "pisten bully", 3 or 4 pages will be returned, on the 2nd page look for video of "pistenbully modell" numbers 1-12. (there are several vidios of the RC until) This is what I am looking to buy.

I am not sure if this person has custom built this or if these are available in a kit to build or ??? They look to be scale models of the machines but I have searched for days now and can't find anything or anyone who knows where these might come from or who might know.

I am surprised this is so difficult but I am also determined to get to the bottom of it. Thanks for any and all help in this matter.

Without downloading the videos to see for sure, just looking at the pictures. I'd say this is a custom built unit that isn't for sale in "kit" form. Good luck in your search however. :)

The RC units on youtube appear to be Graupner kits. I also believe what you may have seen has been highly modified. Here's what I have been able to find for you. Maybe you have already found all of this though.

I don't think you will have much luck finding a kit. That type of RC vehicle appears to very popular in Germany though.

You may want to buy the Kyosho kit and modify it. They seem to be readily available.

Ovaltrucker,

THANKS a ton. I was fairly certain that they had been modified, just trying to find a good base to start from. Your right it does look to be popular in Germany.

thanks again!

I have the Blizzard DX. I paid big bucks for it some time ago on EBAY. It's just sitting on the shelf collecting dust. I had planned on making a chariot to fit atop the thing. I saw that someone had done it years ago in Amazing Figure Modeler or somewhere. It's a Kyosho Blizzard DX...........They are hard to find as I waited for years for it. I do play with it from time to time (spring in the yard). Love that thing.
