My name is Adam, and today we got an RC ground vehicle Music. How cool is that this is the de 37 from DRC. They sent this to me for testing thanks DRC it’s a 116 scale off road vehicle. I guess you could kind of say like a crawler. Well like a light, crawler look with a product like this. I think the most important thing is the actual user experience taking out driving it around so we’re gon na get right back to more driving and stuff in just a second. But if you’re watching this video it’s, probably because you’re thinking about whether or not the de 37 is gon na be right for you, so I will just take a few seconds here to tell you what I liked and what I didn’t like about it. First of all, it comes in right around 40, so it is rather affordable right off the bat. As a bonus, the packaging was great. There were no twisty ties, no zip ties, it was easy to get out and get set up and everything was included. I do really like the styling, the design, the color. I think it just looks really good and it seems to be very durable so far. I’Ve bashed this thing around a pretty good amount and nothing has broken yet, and I actually did not even screw in the the screw to hold the battery cover closed and it’s stayed in just fine. I really like the variable speed motor.
It really helps with the control and it’s kind of it’s cool too, because, like you can go like really slowly, instead of just like really fast, so it gives you that little extra control, I think, that’s really nice and I’m, really happy. With the run time. I was goofing around or I mean doing serious product testing for like an hour and a half. znaš, of course I wasn’t running it the whole time, so I think that’s that’s pretty good, now a few things that I don’t like about it first off. Definitely the ground clearance. There is not a whole lot of ground clearance here, and so what was happening was. It would frequently bottom out and kind of ground itself and just get stuck right here, kind of right where the motor is it would just hit, rocks or dirt clods or just uneven terrain, and it would just get stuck and the wheels would spin so that’s that’s Kind of a downside definitely had to unstick it a lot of times, so I would say, stick to smooth dirt or pavement and you’ll be fine. Another thing that I really don’t like is the steering is not variable so you’re, either going all the way to the left or all the way to the right. There’S, not really fine movements in between they’re, not having variable steering, makes it pretty difficult to maneuver. Precisely, but with the variable speed motor in the back does make it manageable and you can still you can still.
You know stir this thing around obstacles pretty well also RC, ground vehicle, RC, car style, transmitters, they’re, just really weird to me: they’re, odd and unintuitive because, like why would you have the steering wheel as like sideways for how you’re holding it and then it’s like a Trigger thing for the speed I don’t know: it’s just it’s just weird, but that’s just me bottom line. I would have no problem recommending this to someone who’s looking for a fun beginner light off road RC vehicle and with everything that they need in the box to get started for under fifty dollars. If this is something you want to check out for yourself, there is a link in the description below and I sure would appreciate if you use that, because that will help support this channel and keep bringing you videos like these now let’s get back to driving Music. Oh man hit something this thing does ground pretty easily, because we don’t have a whole lot of clearance, so this is kind of this is right on the edge of what this little guy can do. Yeah all right, it’s hard to get traction on these leaves got ta. Keep that speed up. znaš, that’s, really what you got to do you see like right here. I just realized. There was just like awesome little Hill right here, let’s see if we can get up this hill, because that is kind of what we’re supposed to do with the crawlers crawl up a hill.
So let’s do it let’s see if we can? Oh, ne. These leaves are so thick they’re. Getting me grounded out tricky like it’s, like you got to keep up your speed, but you don’t want to go too fast. Hajde, say well, let’s go around this other this backside. I think this backside is gon na be much better. Yeah come on little buddy, you got it, you got it, you can do it. Alright, let’s go around that thing. Wait! Oh, oh, Ja sam. Having a hard time getting traction again. I don’t think it’s gon na happen. Ok, I think that’s as high as we’re gon na get that’s as far as we’re gon na go right now, especially with the battery. The way that it is, it might have made it if we had a full battery. But you know it’s, just it’s, just hitting too much right here that motor in that just really yeah that’s, the main part that’s just too far down. So it would be great if that was a little bit higher up or if we had a little bit more. A little bit bigger wheels that would be pretty sweet, so still pretty good for what it is. I think the battery starting to get tired it’s, not that tired, though I mean just kind of having a hard time getting to all these leaves and stuff. So what are your thoughts on the de 37? Is it good? Is it bad? Would you buy it? Would you recommend it I don’t know.
I want to hear what you have to say and if you can think of something that might be better than the de 37 for the same price or around the same price range.
