Open RC Accessory Contest Winners Announced!

We knew we would get some amazing entries for this contest but we were blown away by how many awesome entries we received! Thank-you to all those who entered and submitted their designs!  Our judges had a very tough job deciding on the top 10 designs but they based their scores on creativity, technical excellence, and presentation.  

Without further ado, here are your Top 10 Winners for the Open RC Accessory Design Contest!

6th – 10th place 


Imagine yourself in the drivers seat of an F1 car! Flashsolutions did just that by scanning their own bust and creating this compatible race car driver helmet and visor. 


The judges loved the creativity of this design – a bull horn ornament that fits right into the nose of the RC.  Great work by Ryan van Waes

Keep your enemies in the dust with this laser attachment! Great design which makes for a quick print and keilum griffin included his print settings. 


How awesome is this body kit!? It’s very Open RC meets Dark Night – Great design work by a_kuhta


Another great body kit design by Isotalo! It can be mounted to the F1 car chassis with M3 screws.


Congratulations! You all won a Limited Edition ZYYX Polo Shirt.


3rd – 5th place


A functional LED light so you can take your RC out at night! Nice work by delukart who also left instructions on how to install the lights on the design page. 


We love the bumper cars when we were kids, and now PIPE AGUIRRE has recreated that experience with the F1 RC car! He has included recommended material for each part of the bumper kit. 



We love the creativity behind this design! MakersPlace designed a 4 part accessory kit to take the RC from speed car to speed boat! Don’t forget to make the parts watertight.
