Uh i’m gon na go ahead and unbox the a242 124 deriva de escala rc. This would kind of be like a big brother to the k969. This guy right here, which is a lot of fun, He, been having a blast with this a lot more fun than i thought and great because they’re small enough to run indoors i’ll go over a breakdown later, but anyways let’s get started with this. I thought about doing the um 1 28th rally, but decided to keep the drift momentum going. You saw me, do the second unboxing uh, my second sg unboxing and the hbx 2188a latest mini hoon, so i thought this would be uh pretty fun. So i ordered these two together. This one did come with a us plug adapter taped to the box, so convenient. Tenlo en cuenta, if you guys have on the plug style, that you need i’m going to go ahead and get this cut open. But i did bring out the sg1604 and 1603 for size comparison and we can talk about what else is going on with these rc’s, but just off the box. It does mention that these come with ball bearings, por lo que es, bastante genial. Lo siento, Estoy. Still cutting this thing. Open – and they also do make a truckee style and short course truck style. I don’t imagine how good they would be in a real off road application uh just because of how small they are. So i did opt out of these.
I i thought that the drift and the rally car um would be uh pretty fun already so pulling this out and in the box you will get the charger, which is a balance port charger, um eu, por lo que es, where the us plug adapter comes in handy, if Needed um here is the manual and just like its little brother i’ll set that right there you do get extra gears for gear options, more torque, more speed, so that’s pretty cool. This is a drift rc based on the tires uh wheels i’m. Looking at they’re hard plastic, which makes it really fun for indoors and hard floor like this right here, that was something that i had trouble with on the hbx 2188 was that the wheels were a little bit more grippy, so they were harder to get sliding on The uh indoors floor without a lot of space, so that one was more of an outdoor fun rc and i still had a lot of blast. I’Ll get some running video on that up soon, pero de todos modos. You could check that out. Look at this size difference between these two 1, 28 Escala, 1 24 Escala, but otherwise they’re both porsche carrera type bodies, same transmitter, but let’s get this opened and ready. So we can get a look at the insides we’ll just do the comparisons in the box. For now, but i think the difference is this is a 1 30 size motor brushed, y esto es un 180 brush motor to accommodate the size difference, but otherwise, uh um, very similar, as in the metal bottom plate metal top plate.
Three wire servo, something i didn’t mention in the other in this video – es que, even though the battery is a jst connector it’s connected through the balance port uh the same as this one will be. You can see right here, balance port connection, um, pero es, pretty cool uh, a nice metal center drive shaft. These are locked front and rear, so that’s pretty cool. As far as um being on the drift setup, you can see same here locked front and rear diffs, which will help initiate the slides so i’ll get this cut off and let’s. Take a closer look. Just got this thing opened up and uh lined up all these rc’s and um just wanted to show an overview comparison, give some thoughts on these uh um, just being smaller drift and rally rc cars, so here’s the sg 16 Serie, both the 1604 y el 1603. I think that’s one of the latest hot rc’s, that is really a bang for the buck. Tiene un 380 motor gyro two sets of wheels uh full ball bearings a great body, that’s lighted, lo cual es realmente genial. I mean you can see. These are the drift wheels and these are the rally wheels that come with it all included again, it’s one of the top value, rc’s bang for the buck. En mi opinión, this is about a 70 rc and uh coming with all that extra equipment. This one right here, los juguetes wl, 969 n989, the drift and the rally version, which is the smaller version of this guy right here.
Uh those are about 50 dollar rc’s um, just for the prices that i picked them up for and this one is about a 55 Para 60 dollar rc. So it gives you an idea, um. Sabes si estás, what you’re looking for and uh the price ranges. Así que de nuevo, 50 55 Para 60 Y 70. 65 Para 70 dollars are about the prices that i paid for these um and i honestly, as of now uh so far, i recommend i can highly recommend that little 969 it’s a lot of fun for indoors drifting, tight Spaces, bad weather, keeping you from getting out pull that out and you’ll have a lot of fun for a long time, get some ropes and create a little drift track. Es decir. What i’ve been doing and waiting to get some video of that up soon and hoping to get some video of that up soon, but anyways going back to the main unboxing, which is this one? The a 242 124 scale uh. Básicamente, Como dije, the big brother version of this guy um, pero um, not really, you know comparisons as far as uh performance and type of rc’s, but while i had them all out it’s, you know i figured it. Wouldn’T hurt to uh to open them all up, so you can get a look on how they are. But again, as i said earlier, these two are very similar chassis design. The esc almost look the same.
If they’re, No, i wouldn’t doubt if they are and then again you got your three wire servo, this being a three wire servo actually allows you to throw in a mini gyro or a little auxiliary gyro into this thing, which is pretty cool and let’s, see both Run stick size batteries. This one is a little bit larger. I don’t know i don’t recall the size of the battery uh, but i know that this runs a 130 motor, Un 180 motor, and then this runs a 380 motor o 370. I believe um yeah um but i’m hoping to get this thing running and i probably will be able to just because it’s something i can run indoors and uh. Hopefully i can get my buddy over and we’ll run both of these together, just to see how they uh perform, but thanks a lot for watching and um just reminder. This is part of the wl toys, small rc series. I got this 252 rally car coming uh and the rally version of this the k989, also on the way there’s. Actually lots of videos on the k989, definitely recommend you check them out, it’s a pretty cool. Looking little rc, i haven’t pulled mine out, so i can’t uh, i can’t speak for how much fun it is yet, but all these little rc’s are definitely a blast and um or else i want to throw my money at these. So i haven’t found a loser.
Yet um don’t have my 2188 with me or else i’d. Have it in this pile right here for uh for the uh overview also, but i think this is pretty cool it’s uh i like that they make them in all different sizes and uh. They all hit a certain sweet spot and they all find their own purpose so part of the rc love and addiction.
