Now, if you know me by now, i really love cheap and budget rc’s. Today, we’re going to be taking a look at another, really really cheap rc at the moment, and it is the eachine e811 or e 11. As a lot of people are actually calling it, this thing looks really really promising for the price. This can actually be had for potentially less than 50 pounds here in the uk, i’m, not sure what that is in dollars, but i’m pretty sure it is well under a hundred dollars. Now, from what i have seen of this, this does do things a little bit different to what you’d usually expect to see on an rc, especially when it comes to the internal layout under the body shell. But as always, we will take a much closer look at that a little bit later on in the video. Now, if you haven’t already be sure to hit that subscribe button, we have got so much more coming up on the channel, including more reviews, more budget, rc’s, brushless, conversions and so much more so be sure to hit that subscribe button to stay up to date. With all the latest rc content, so let’s not waste any more time. Let’S get this thing unpacked and see what we get in the box right and so let’s take a closer look at what you actually get included in the box. Now we’ll start with the batteries. First of all, you get two of these 18 650 batteries, and these are 1500 milliamp each.
So the little truck itself will take two of these, which will give you uh the equivalent of 2s. You also get a little usb charger, a little 18650 usb charger which should get the job done. Absolutely fine. We also get a little screwdriver. Now your transmitter has some basic settings on it. You do have steering trim and you can also adjust your throttle trim as well, and this will allow you to set how fast or slow you want the the model to behave which is really nice for people. If this is your first model uh, you can turn you can turn the the throttle up and down, which is a nice little feature. There’S, your on and off switch as normal, not bad quality i’ve seen a lot worse in the past, especially something at this sort of price point not a bad little transmitter at all very pleased with that onto the manual quite a basic manual it’s, not in color And you know me now: i do like color manuals, but again we do have to remember the price of this little truck uh. It covers all your basics, what you actually get in the box, how to install the transmitter batteries uh? What else have we got on here charging and installing uh the battery pack uh now we’ll take a closer look at the track in a moment, because the way these batteries actually go in is a little bit different to what you’d expect on a normal rc or An rc that you’ve seen before, but we will talk about that in a moment – uh just some fine tuning settings for the transmitter and a few other bits as well, so not a bad little uh manual to be fair, not the best thing i’ve ever seen, it’s, Not in as much as not in as much detail as you might actually like to see but definitely gets the job done, all the basic stuff is in there and i don’t think you can really go wrong.
So uh you don’t get a huge amount in the box. That is pretty much all you get. I think there’s only one thing left to do in that is to take a closer look at the little buggy itself right, so we’ve had a look at what you get included in the box. Let’S take a quick look at the little track itself now. The first thing you notice is the bright color scheme. We’Ve got the bright green, the black and the red trim on the wheels there overall, a very nice little color scheme. It definitely does pop, especially in natural daylight. I really like that. Color a lot we’ve got a nice black spoiler going on there as well, and another thing you do notice is the led lights on the front bumper. You would have seen those all it up and running on the intro and we will fire this up in a little while and we’ll take another closer look at the led lights overall, a very nice looking uh cheap budget rc right so let’s take a closer look At what is going on under the body, shell, then now. The first thing you notice is the uh, the small ‘0 size brush motor, which is centrally mounted it’s, not something you see very often, but i do like the fact that it is on this because it does help with weight distribution. Now let’s talk very briefly about where the batteries go. They actually go in these little compartments on the side.
I’M, not sure, if i’m going to be able to take this. Take this out, one handed so this, as you can see, is where the 18650 batteries go. Now you do have one on each side. If i take that one out just to show you where that actually sits, we do have one on the other side as well, but i’m not going to take that one out for the moment, because i am just demonstrating where they actually go. So this does take two and you do get two included in the box, because this will this will equal. Your uh 2s you’ve got a five wire servo, which is a very common thing on these cheap and budget rc’s, but not only that we’ve also got a like a three in one unit with the esc as well, which does power your front leds. As you can see, you’ve got the wires coming out of there, which does power your front leds. Now this is the sort of thing we do see quite often on a lot of these cheap and budget rc’s. So let’s talk very briefly about the shocks on this because they aren’t oil filled. They are just friction now. That does obviously mean that the model is a little bit bouncy a little bit springy. You know it’s nothing we haven’t seen before, but it does bring us back to the cheap price. You know you don’t expect to see oil field shocks on this, but i definitely think you probably could upgrade to a set of oil field shocks if you really wanted to at a later date.
So taking a closer look, as you can see, it does have plastic dog bones or drive shafts and i’d like to guess that the the differentials are also plastic as well that’s. Just my guess. I haven’t actually taken this apart yet, but when i do, i can confirm that, but overall not a bad little buggy, especially for the price. The wheels are quite firm. The the rubber that’s actually been used is also quite firm. You know i wouldn’t have said this is going to be the most grippy thing in the in the whole world. But then again i wouldn’t have said this is going to be the fastest thing in the whole world either, but yeah overall, not a bad little package, especially for that price. It this thing is insanely cheap. You know i really can’t stress that enough and if this thing proves to be a lot of fun to be honest, it will be an absolute steal. So, taking a closer look at the leds on this, they are permanently switched on there isn’t a way to actually switch them off with a switch and they aren’t switchable from the transmitter either. But, to be honest, i think this is going to be absolutely fine. I don’t think you’re going to care too much, especially if you buy this as a really cheap budget model. I don’t think you’re going to care that you can’t actually turn the leds off. So this little truck is 1 14th scout.
It is also fully proportional, which is a very nice little touch on something this cheap okay, so we have got a fresh set of batteries in there. I think the first thing we’ll do is actually take this out and see how fast it is. We’Ll then, give it a very quick and brief bash around my garden and see how it performs, but overall, looking like a very promising little machine for a very, very uh, cheap price right, we’re all set to go let’s see how fast this little buggy is. Music Applause right, and so we managed to achieve 18 miles per hour, which is uh to be honest, nowhere near the claimed speed on the box, but even so 18 miles per hour out of a uh, a buggy that costs well. To be honest, you know not a huge amount of money that isn’t too bad at all 18 miles per hour, not a bad uh, not a bad little speed, Music, Music Applause, Music, Music, okay, then so, overall, a really really nice little truck. We did have some fun with it out in the back garden and we also took it out and gave it a very quick speed test now. As you see, we did only manage 18 miles per hour and it does say on the box that it will do 48 kilometers per hour or 29 miles per hour now. Obviously it won’t do that and i think we sort of guessed it wouldn’t do that, because it is a very cheap budget rc, but even so 18 miles per hour is far from being bad, so we know it’s cheap.
We also know it does come with. Quite a few nice features such as being fully proportional and again for something of this price being fully proportional is definitely an added bonus. Now would i recommend this to you well there’s, very few rc’s out there that i wouldn’t actually recommend to anyone. This is definitely one of the ones that i would recommend, especially if you are on a very tight budget, considering something like this would be ideal. So, even though this is in between toy grade hobby grade, i would definitely recommend one, especially if you’re looking to have some fun out in your back garden or your backyard, or you know just a second rc just to have a little mess around with. Even on your driveway, something as cheap as this, you really can’t go wrong.
