Hi that is looking amazing. But you are supposed to have three Famos for this job!

Are the motors in the FAMO the same as the Tiger?
What did you need to do to prepare the Tiger for Towing?

Awesome! the sheer size of it is Amazing. The Tiger is a big model in 1/6 and is dwarfed by the FAMO.

The Famo has more torque than the Tiger 1.

The Tiger 1 is our production verification model built at the end of last year. It has motors installed, but no other electronics or batteries. The only prep was to get a tow rope and a couple of u-shackles.
The towing, apart from making a great video and getting a lot of attention, was for practical reasons as well - after photographing the models we did not want to have to carry the Tiger 1 back in. So it was a case of either the Elefant or the Famo towing the Tiger 1 ... obviously the Famo won out !!

This is the most amazing video. I am obsessed. So I can tow my Tiger with the FAMO and the motors and electronics will not be harmed.
