I know a bunch of you have been asking for more budget oriented rc cars here on the channel. I’Ve been trying to get some in and i got something that you need to check out, especially if you’re looking for an rc crawler, it is from panda it’s the tetra k1. This thing is pretty cool. It comes completely ready to run yes inside the box. It comes with a great 2.4 gigahertz radio system, with all the trim functions. You’Ll need for this rig. It comes with a usb charger for the battery. All you got to do is plug this thing in and let it charge up and you’re ready to go and, of course, there’s a bunch of other little stuff in the box like your manual some tools, some extra clips and stuff, and overall this is just a Great looking package, all right, let’s go over the truck, really quick. This is the k1 version. We’Ve actually reviewed. The x1 version here on the channel i’ll put a card up above to that. But this version here is really cool. It’S got a power wagon. Look to the body it comes in a couple of different colors we’ve got this greenish gray version here. It’S got some black fender wells; it even has led lights on it, clear windows. This is a pretty good looking body for an 18 scale rig. I think this is going to look awesome out on the rocks. These tires, look pretty awesome and the wheel combination.
I think it’s gon na have a lot of traction check out the frame rails. On this thing, this thing looks pretty good. The the cross bracing is plastic a little bit of flex there, but not that big of a deal for a crawler of its size check out these aluminum shocks. These look pretty good. They could use a little bit lighter weight oil in there throw some 10 weight in there. I think it’ll be fine check out the plastic solid axles on this truck. They do have steel shafts on the inside. They look pretty good and i think they’re gon na hold up really well to you know the type of crawling this truck’s gon na do and now for the electronics package. It’S got a two on one receiver: esc combo there’s a servo mounted up front. I think this truck is going to be a lot of fun for anyone who wants to get into crawling or just looking for something small to run in their backyard. All right, let me show you how easy it is to take it out for a crawl turn on your radio, make sure the battery is plugged in turn on the truck and go have fun. Ah, for about a hundred and ten dollars, this crawler is awesome. I had so much fun with it and they have a bunch of option parts for it too. If you don’t, like the body, you can switch out the body.
If you want to get some brass for it, they have brass for it. They have different aluminum parts. For it, so this is an upgradable small rig, so if you really get into it, you know it’s a great budget truck to get into and then you could absolutely grow into it and dial it into the way you want with the option parts.
