1980's Nikko Rhino in Box!!! My new find!!
« on: February 21, 2012, 12:49:32 »
First off, Hows everyone doing? Anyways, I had posted this on the TYCO side, sorry, I think it should have been placed here instead, Mod, you can edit my TYCO listing if needed. Anywho, Its a classic, 1980's Nikko Rhino! Anyone remember these?? Just got it today on the C-list. It in box with all paperwork, transmitter, 2 battery backs, a Nikko fast charger, extra wheels and did I mention IN BOX!?! What do you guys think??? I gave it a quick charge and put in some old batteries and it started right up! Didnt last long, so now Im charging the battery pack again, slowly and gonna get me some more AA batteries. This monster uses the battery pack plus 4AA and 6 on the transmitter. Just thought Id share and show it off. Its missing the rear wing, anyone have any idea of where I can get one? Looks to be bolted on with 2 screws. Its definitely cool and I after 20 something years, I finally got one!!  ;D Thanks!

Awsome find!
I'd have to say the F10 buggy's are the most collectible vintage Nikko R/C there is.

-Tyco.
-Nikko

Thanks! Yeah, its a beauty! Any idea of a wing that I might be able to use on this one? Its the only thing missing. Runs great, having some fun chasing the cats around the house  ;D
