I got a big favor to ask of you guys if you are watching this video, because you like the idea of budget rc’s having an honest review on our channel, go ahead and like this video. It helps us out a lot because budget vehicles just aren’t as popular as the really big awesome, Rapide, powerful things. So we like doing budget things on the channel because we like budget things, but also we know there’s a lot of people out there. That are just of budget mind and we want these types of things to always be on the channel. So this is by a company called drc drc they’re sold on amazon. The spelling is a little odd, so we’ll link it in the description box below the cool thing is it’s. Sous 100 it’s four wheel drive it’s ready to run. It comes with everything you need in the box to drive this thing, so i’m excited we’re, gon na ramp, it on our little ramp today and really see if it’s worth your hard earned money and i think, for a limited amount of time. Euh. If you check it out in the link there’s, actually a little coupon, you can click to save 10. So i i think it puts it right around 70 bucks or so, which is a really good deal with two batteries too little usb charge, cable and there’s. Not much else to say other than let’s drive it and see if we can hit this ramp before we power the truck on.
I want to give a shout out to our sponsor for today’s video leading edge supplements, severe clear. This is an energy supplement designed by a full scale, pilot for full scale, pilots and rc pilots abby, and i have been trying this stuff out lately. We, like it a lot and we wanted to pass it on to you guys if you’re interested it’s linked in the description box below and we have an exclusive promo code down there by the link it can save you 15 nous allons. Try did. I mention it’s four wheel drive fully proportional throttle and steering nice, so this is all good right if you’re gon na have a budget rc. Those are the kind of things that you want in it now look here as i get it out of the box. This is something that this is a beginner truck, so let’s give a beginner tip. d'accord. When you get your rc running, then you throttle it and it just starts steering in a circle like that, but you’re not steering it there’s a simple little knob here, there’s a speed switch and a steering trim if it’s going to the right just twist it to The left now watch much straighter okay, so there you go that’s a beginner truck with the beginner tip. Can we hit the ramp let’s just get a feel for it here, that’s a full throttle pass. Now i wonder if our speed switch is turned all the way up or not, but for for the price of what we’re dealing with here, C'est, pas trop mal.
Was that an attempt? No actually it wasn’t. I could easily say it was and i missed it, but no it was not let’s. Do let’s try to hit it here. Nous allons. Oh, that was an hey. I landed on all four wheels. We’Ll i’ll give it one more shot and if i can’t hit it then we’ll have you drive it it’s, a pretty good little it’s, a pretty good little rc for the price i mean with the coupon uh there’s, like a clickable coupon in the link. I think it retails for 75 bucks and you save 10, so you’re gon na be right under 70 with that coupon that’s, pretty good price for something with two batteries. I didn’t actually wreck it, but i will pass the control to you and see if you can hit that ramp you’re better at ramping, small rc’s that’s the first time i’ve ever heard. You say that okay abby’s at the controls she’s got her one glove one glove. I was filming okay hell well, my gloves. Have the fingers cut out so it’s a little twitchy on the steering when you’re going full throttle like the steering servo isn’t going right? Bien, you can you’re welcome to trim it up yourself too. Unlike airplanes, abby does know how to trim up her ground vehicles, D'accord, so we’re asking we’re asking for likes, because we want people to keep coming back for budget vehicles. It looked like it was veering off to the left.
Now you know you guys have been asking for budget week hold on. I know the problem we had the ramp in the wrong spot. They can’t take this crack right here. There abby says by moving the ramp, she can now crack and it couldn’t it couldn’t ride. Yeah we’ll see about that. I think it has a slightly weak steering servo but i’m just trying to help it in any way possible. Let’S see if we can get it on our line, see that line right there – Oh mon dieu, d'accord, i can do it here. We go grandma speeds and we got a ram okay. I’M gon na. I am going to take the controls back from you. If you hit it that slow again come on, oh d’accord, that counts as a wreck. One more bad attempt. This is it’s really hard to steer like this is like super tight yeah. I don’t know it’s hard to steer okay and it’s wet out too. The water is making a little slick, but when we’re driving straight, if you can’t hold a straight line in here there there we go there, it is you hit it. You hit it. That was good nice. Jusqu’à présent,, this has not actually flipped upside down and stayed upside down. Not bad we’ll. Take it down in the gravel here in just a minute just to get a little variety of terrain. d'accord! Oh non! Is it having issues? Yeah look right now the steering wheel here, the steering wheel, d'accord, nous allons, see yeah, look so no throttle.
Allons-y! Take a look! Oh non! Bien! I’M gon na say this confidently. This rc is probably not designed to go through any amount of water. We haven’t even driven it like there’s, just a little bit of moisture, it’s uh it’s not really gone through any puddles or anything there. You go well, d'accord, so it’s fine. Maybe that was like a range issue. Maybe, although those are brand new batteries in the radio, so three brand new double a’s, that we provided yeah that’s a range issue, so it’s got a range terrible range issue: oh c’est, not good, C'est, not good! When we get it back, d'accord, there, it is okay, so like 30 Pieds, right well, i’d, say more like 50 Ou 60 Fou. That is a range issue, though okay let’s take it down to the gravel drive some down there. We know this is having a range issue: nous sommes, pas c’est, not a great ramping, truck that’s for sure. Okay let’s go down there. Oh good job, Bon travail. Bien, here we are slightly different terrain. We’Ve got some gravel down here, a little bit of water to splash through again, this is not a waterproof rc. So if i were you guys, i would probably avoid water all together, but what we’ll do is dry this out really well well, when we’re done driving it uh we like to use people, ask us all the time. What will we use to dry it out? Abby’S, hair dryer that thing’s been kicking for like what 15 years now um, i think it’s actually older than me.
I stole it from my mom when i moved out so okay, so we use her hair dryer. Bien sûr, take the battery out. You don’t want to blow dry a battery that would be bad for your lipo and and probably dangerous, Et puis, after that, you can just set it by a vent. If you have floor vents or in a room that gets kind of warm overnight and that’ll just help it completely air dry out, if it’s really wet, you can use a towel to dry it out. So let me show you a couple things on this rc. You know we realized, we had a range issue, which was a shame, because normally these things have really good range. We could probably blame the radio, but also one downside is these shocks. They look cool. They have that blue spring. They are not. Oil filled it’s. Just a dry shock completely relying on that spring. Heureusement, they’re independent means there’s four of them, so it rides pretty well, mais c’est, a little stiff as you can see when it’s bouncing around and it doesn’t really take the hits extremely well, mais c’est, very rare. For us to feature an rc truck on the channel, that is this price. This is one of the cheapest rc bashers we’ve ever seen on the truck on the channel i’m. Pardon, it says truck. I was reading it and this would be such a good gift because we’re getting a really long run time, we’re going to get probably 15 À 20 minutes of runtime on this one battery and remember it comes with two batteries, so you really can’t beat that in Full disclosure here you know this drc, they they kind of reached out to us and said hey.
Do you guys want to put this kind of thing on your channel and we said yeah we’ve had a lot of budget people asking about this, so let’s go for it and they also when we did that sent amelia a couple of toys. One was a little microwave and the other was a little kitchen set thing so uh we said yeah that’s, really awesome of you to send amelia some toys uh. She loves them. So if you guys have kids in your life, we’ll link those toys. She loves the microwave, she really loves it, and actually it has a little light and it makes little beepy noises and stuff and the turntable and it turns she loves it. I almost wanted to put it on the channel, but i think you guys would absolutely hate that and hate us for it. So obviously we wouldn’t do that to you, but i just wanted to give that full disclosure and a shout out look. I want to say this: this is far from the perfect rc ground vehicle has small issues like the range and it could see slight improvements of quality like those shocks but overall for the price and getting two nice long, runtime batteries and it just looks awesome. This is a really good design. We don’t have anything that has this like: yellow red black white, lightning, really cool design going on. They even are proud enough to put their own brand on their truck and on amazon, their video that they use to promote.
This thing looks just as good as like a traxxas video or something like they really are standing behind it so because it’s on amazon, it’s got customer support and stuff you’re, paying a little bit more for that. But if you get yours and right out of the box, that has any major issues they’ll take care of that so there’s, some good and some bad to be had here, but we’re looking at a vehicle that’s like under 70 Dollars. So you have to understand that going into it ready to run four wheel, drive sure it’s missing a few things, but also, i highly doubt if you’re buying, axials or traxxas things you’re going to buy this. This is going to be for the kid in your life or the new person in the hobby, so for that i give it two thumbs up as long as you guys are aware of the issues going into it. Si vous aimez, that, we’ll have it linked in the description box below one final quick shout out, and thank you to our sponsor in today’s video, which is leading edge supplements guys. Please do check them out if this is the type of thing that you use in your life: c'est, a pretty cool setup and it’s really cool. I talked to the guy on the phone he’s, a full scale pilot, which i think is awesome and he’s really backing his product really. Bien, all the good stuff that we talked about in today’s.
Video is linked in the description box below, and i just want to. Thank god for all the good in our lives and all the bad just uh it’s been a you know. 2020 is a crazy year and we’re all hoping for 2021 to be a better year and and so far we’re off to a fun start. I think you know so i have had a lot of really cool rc’s on the channel for that and just some of those good days. I thank god for the break in this weather too. It’S been raining all day, ainsi, thanks to the big guy upstairs and one final, thank you to our patreon supporters, because we could not do our channel without you guys.

Subscribers in like less than two weeks, c’est fou, you guys rock that took us like three years on our on this channel.
