This amazing outback workhorse is one of the very important “Air Trucks” used to bring supplies into the furthest reaches of the rugged wildness that is Alaska. Check out this video showing the biggest RC Beaver we’ve ever seen. And what’s more, it made entirely our of aluminum and has over 21,000 rivets making its construction absolutely scale.
