Here with the new toy. Today i picked up a new bright rc baja. These are available at walmart for only 40.. I figured i’d get it and test it out, as it is a fully functional, rc car i’m. Thinking it might be great if you have a child or for someone just getting into the hobby. It is a toy grade, it’s. Definitely not a hobby grade, but we’re gon na go ahead here, unbox it see how it drives and then we’re also gon. Na put it up against the traxxas slash in a video to come and see the difference between the two. So here we are guys we have our new bright rc rc baja at first look. This comes with a 2.4 gigahertz controller, so it should have okay range. It’S definitely nothing fancy for a controller. It says it has a lithium battery lithium, what i’m not sure it’s, probably most most likely it’s a lithium ion. It won’t be a lipo in there. Overall, the packaging seems pretty good on it. So let’s go ahead here and open it up the one nice thing for people just getting into the hobby. Is it charges off a usb cord, so you won’t have to go out and get yourself a new charger so i’m just going to cut the tape on this box and let’s open it up so right off the bat there’s our instructions i’m gon na set those Aside, those will be handy, but definitely not what we’re interested at looking at right now.
So let’s slide this out of here. There we go so upon. First look everything’s tied down to the box pretty well, they even gave us batteries for our controller, which was nice. This will be truly ready to run right out of the box i’m gon na. Take those batteries out and set them aside here flip this over i’m gon na go ahead and cut the rest of the tape off of this, so we can undo the car next thing we’ll get out here is our usb cord everything’s taped into the box. Quite well, it actually looks like they have that on these tabs, strapped in so i’m gon na grab a pair of cutters, we’ll go ahead and we’re going to snip these off to start or let’s, see if they actually unscrew they might, which would be nice and Easy and look at that they do so they’re, just a twisting clip so in the box it’s hard to see but i’m just twisting those, and now our car is actually free here, get the usb cord through the box. Let’S get the box out of the way and take a look at the car. So the first thing i notice, if you’re familiar with rc grade toys. This is very light compared to a traxxas and arma lowsy anything along those lines. It seems to have suspension in it yeah. It does have independent suspension, definitely nowhere near comparable to what we’re used to.
But again this is ready to go for forty dollars. This is a beginner grade. Toy type. Car let’s take a look at the bottom here, so in the back we have our battery hatch with our charge, cable by the look of it to open it. It seems like we just slide this down, possibly sliding left there. We go so slides, clicks and then lifts up there and off that’s, where our battery cable is gon na store. So i originally thought it was a two piece: usb cable that’s a little less convenient that it stores into the car there but opens and closes nice enough on the bottom. Here we actually have our steering trim it’s, not on the remote it’s, an alignment they call it right on the front of the car. We have our on off switch and we’ll, go ahead here and take a look at the remote. So the remote is what i will call more of the airplane style. You’Ll. Have your forward reverse, left and right on it, nothing fancy at all, but should do the trick for this car we’re gon na go ahead here and i’m gon na charge it up. Now i will grab my laptop, so i can show you guys how we’ll put it on charge so we’re going to go ahead there. I remove the cover, pull out our usb cable and we’re, just gon na plug that in now and let it charge so now.
We’Re all charged up and ready to go let’s get this new bright down on the ground and see what happens so we see we have our steering and off the bat. If you guys are familiar with hobby grade, rc you’ll realize it’s, definitely not a speed demon. It definitely drives and steers, see how reverse is so. The one thing i think, if we go into the grass we’re gon na get stuck that’s gon na be one of the differences we have here, yeah so now, we’re into the grass struggling, not making too much progress. So i’m gon na set it back on the road, get it here. There’S, not a lot of power behind this at all, it’s. Definitely a toy if you’re looking to get into the rc after playing with this for the first little bit i’m, not sure this would be my recommendation in the next video i do with this i’m gon na put it up beside a hobby grade rc. One of my lower end ones and i’ll give you an idea of the difference between the two. If you’re just looking for a cheap toy for forty dollars, it’s, not horrible, it definitely does move around it, steers it drives, but it’s, not an excellent car. You can see it’s not going to make its way through grass and there’s, not a lot of power and speed behind it. Overall, from what i’ve read to the batteries are only seeming to last about five minutes playing in them: that’s a big difference between some of your hobby grade stuff, where you’ll be getting upwards of 20 minute run times, but stay tuned and you’ll see the difference.
