I have been looking at getting one of these uh i’ve been looking on uh banggood um. I actually got this one off at amazon for uh on prime day they had the sale, so i figured hey. It turned out to end up being cheaper on amazon prime day than um through banggood, so i picked it up off amazon um. So, yes, you guys see it’s a easy rc patriot with the 4runner body, i’ve, always liked these bodies and we’re going to compare the size of this to the uh scx 24. So let’s go on ahead and open this bad boy up all right, so that’s it out of the box here it is everybody got some tape here. Take this cover off, and here it is so that’s the truck and now let’s see what else we got in here instruction manual, Applause, a uh, very, very basic controller. You got your trim levels all in the back. There it’s not too bad your on off button right here on the side and that button that right there is nothing put that to the side. There don’t forget to read that, and you also get charger. It goes in a usb. You get a uh, i believe, that’s a little two cell lipo a little seven point: four, thirty, eight hundred ma two cell. It is a two cell and you get a little wrench Applause. So back to this right here, um so it’s not it’s a 118 scale.
Uh easy patriot, pet patreon, easy rc um. I think it looks cool man, i’ll i’ll admit this thing looks. Let me get you guys in closer, so we have. It says, peel off right. There uh figure how to do that. That’S – probably not ideal, but oh there. We go so there we go trunk, the hood is open and, as you guys can see, that is where you end up putting the battery which look at that it actually brings another battery. So this thing actually comes with two batteries guys. That is awesome, so that is awesome. So right in here is where you hook up your battery and the battery ends up sitting in the back right. There you’re able to close the hood peel that off, like it says so so that’s and if the hood closes once you put everything in nice and tidy and there you go dude this thing guys this thing looks epic um, i don’t know how much juice is In the battery, but before i do that, let’s just close that hood real quick, so this thing all has a full interior. I don’t know if you guys, can see that sorry about the light in there. But if you guys can see it has a full interior in there uh these lights right up here actually do have light buckets. So if you guys can see right there, you can actually add lights into these uh these lights.
Here you get a rear tire which i don’t know how you uh. If you guys have seen my uh, if you guys have seen my video of my rgt, you guys know that the rear wheel actually does put weight on the back, which will, when you’re climbing, when you’re climbing it tends to flip backwards. But i think, with everything the weight being on the front with the battery and everything we might not have an issue with that um, this thing’s, pretty cool guys. It comes with a snorkel here. Uh, you guys see that it comes with a uh. Has a mirror. Here. Has another mirror right there? It all comes with the mirrors um. They they left the door handles, as you guys can see there. They left the door handles white to match the body which is pretty cool uh. I could probably end up grabbing uh some paint and just touching this up black just you know just to show off the uh the handle the door handles there. In the back i mean it could definitely use some suspension i’m trying to see if these rear lights have buckets on them, but i can’t really tell and they do i’m looking in the back there. You might not be able to tell, but if you can look through the camera there, you see right back there right about where my finger is at right. Back here, there’s wiring that’s, coming along the back end of it was pretty cool.
You got the ladder to climb up to the roof. This thing they they did a pretty good job with the scale uh. With the skills of this of this truck um, i will definitely admit now the underside, as the underside you guys can see. There is the motor right in there. It is a four link, four link front four length rear and i like how they have the whole underbody done. The steering looks like we have some pretty good steering uh the body to take off the body i don’t know. I don’t know how that’s gon na be uh. You probably have to end up undoing a couple screws under here, uh, probably on the front. Also the chassis you guys can see right here. That is definitely definitely not metal chassis that is composite or something it’s plastic. Um it’s definitely not a metal chassis, but i believe that it should um. I believe that this thing should not be too bad uh. One thing i want to do right now is: compare it size, wise to the scx 24, so scx 24 and the rgt i mean i’m. Sorry, the easy rc so, as you guys can see i’m going to line up the rear wheels. The scx 24 is back further it’s smaller than the uh, then the easy rc lance cruiser 4runner. I believe this is the 4runner land cruiser, but so line them up front to front and you can see how much longer the you can see how much longer the scx 24 i mean.
I’M. Sorry, the easier rc is than the skx24 um, the scx24. As everybody knows, it does have a metal chassis as this one does not so here’s another view here so tire wise. The tires are also a little bit bigger than on the scx24, and i do like the uh. The look of these tires man. The look of these tires look. Bad ass might have some good grip on these things um. I do not think that they’re firm but uh let’s throw in a battery and see what this thing is all about: all right now, the controller. So if you are buying this for one of your kids or a gift as a kit for for a child or something it does have a screw here, where you can’t open this up, so we’ll take this out, which is a nice feature. So that way, the kids aren’t sitting there pulling this open and three double a batteries and pulling out the batteries and everything so put. The batteries in and that’s already on, let’s turn that off and i am not going to be putting the screw back in there. So let’s put a battery in here. One of the batteries in here and uh let’s see what happens all right. So we got the battery in there and the on off switch is on the inside. The on off switch is on the inside right there, pretty much about where my finger is at like right in there somewhere.
So let’s close this up and see what this thing’s all about so cool. We do have lights because they come on when you start accelerating, but you do not have any rears. Oh you do you put on the once you hit the brakes. You don’t even have to tap it much i’m. Not even touching it right now, not too bad. Not too shabby all proportional steering proportional throttle and we do have turn signals both front and rear. So you turn it to the left. Turn it to the right. You got turn signals there and you got turn signals in the back also so the throttle trim. I got to figure out this throttle trim man, because i kind of don’t like the fact that you just push push a little bit on the throttle. I’M. Not even touching it right now and you can and you can hear it – the lights are on. So that means it’s breaking um. I mean it’s, not so much of a big deal, but it is so that’s doesn’t, look too bad guys see what it does here. Yeah. I want to see if i can try to upgrade change the radio on this let’s. Try. This again it’s not so bad. I paid 89.99 on amazon for this and um. That was during prime day so now, i’m. Actually, looking it up on amazon right now and it’s going for 119.99 um, they also have the jeep wrangler, which was actually about the same price um on for amazon, prime.
But everybody has a jeep and i kind of wanted to stay away from the jeep, because everybody and their mother has one so i didn’t want to uh to be like everybody else and have the jeep, but i mean i have always liked this body um and On top of that, this is not a lexan body. This is a hard body like it’s it’s, a hard body. Unlike the scs 24 uh, the sxx 24 is just straight up: it’s a lexan body which, for 90 bucks – i i i couldn’t, let it i couldn’t, pass it up, um and with full interior, and everything which i want to see. If i can try to get the in get this opened up and uh, try to add some touches to the interior on this thing that, but this thing just looks badass um i’m gon na see. If i can also try to add some lighting to these lights right up here, because i think that would be kind of cool to have those lights and the lights up top working, so yeah i mean so far, it seems pretty cool. Looking um again, it is a little bit bigger than the scx 24. As you guys see right. There might line up these wheels together center center it’s a little bit bigger than the scx 24, but um. You guys can see there too. So a little bit bigger than the sax24 but we’ll see how it does um.
I still have to test out the scx24 again with uh those weights weights, washers the weights, the washers and the rgt with the washer weights uh to see if it helped any. So i can climb up that uh that big rock that’s still coming. I still haven’t forgotten that that’s still coming just haven’t had time to do it, but um with that being said guys. Girls, ladies and gentlemen, that’s pretty much all i got for you. So i got, i hope you guys like this video and uh.
