“I have always been interested in tracked vehicles,” says Seth Abrahams. Abrahams is a member of the Bay Area Tankers club, a group of R/C tank enthusiasts who promote the hobby of scale model armored vehicles.

Abrahams brought his 1/16th scale RC tanks to Maker Fair Bay Area last year, and he’ll be back again this year. Check out the video below for an idea of what is in store.

Whether you are a newcomer to the world of RC tanks or a dedicated “Tread Head” like Abrahams, come out and play!
