One, the dirty road test is off road capability on both dirt and grass level. Two, the rocky road test, its performance around large obstacles, level, three, the volcanic slope, the impossible level, one that has never been conquered is this: the best mini crawler on the market. We’Ll share our pros and cons at the end of this video Music, hey what’s up guys i’m joe and i’m, amber with the rc kiwis on this channel. Everything from fashion crawling speed runs on books, reviews and much more so if you’re new here consider subscribing that way, you won’t miss out on any of our future rc adventures and in today’s adventure we’re, taking out this arizona rc from easy rc out for its first Run and we’re going to give you guys our initial thoughts at the end of this video and don’t. Forget guys this car will be linked in the description box down below. If you are interested and if you decide to go through our link, it won’t cost you any extra, but it does help support the channel and we want to say huge. Thank you to ifms for sending us out this rc2 review, but not to worry guys as we always keep it real here on the rc keyboard and guys. Looking at this box, this car looks pretty cool. I do hope it looks like this in person, so let’s find out together. It’S like a yellow transformer. So in the box comes the instruction manual which you should read a usb charger and a tool.
A 2s 380 milliamp 5c discharge lipo battery, and it does come with this very important note for your battery, which says if it is not in use for a long time unplug and take off the battery to prevent battery leakage. Your bumblebee transformer looking receiver and, of course, your 118 scale, crawler arizona, Music, starting off with the body. I love the way this looks, the color is so vibrant and it is so nice. It actually reminds me of a real jeep they’ve gone into real good detail with the window wipers here and the door handles the little mirrors. It has working headlights and tail lights. I do wish it had an interior, but the tinted windows are a pretty cool effect. As well now, looking under the hood, this is where all the electronics live. We’Ve got a tiny itty, bitty uh servo you’ve also got a two in one receiver: esc combo, it doesn’t have a casing. So this is not going to be waterproof at all. It’S on and off switch it’s also got a little battery train there for your tiny little lipo battery and it’s also got a tiny little size brush motor a lot of tiny things going on here. But this is a 118 scale ready to run crawler and that’s. What it’s all about all about the tiny stuff. This rc is basically all plastic with plastic, chassis, plastic, axles, plastic shocks and the wheels feel pretty good. Pretty similar to the toyota see that we reviewed recently make sure you go check that out.
It does have ball bearings, but um yeah it’s got a pretty realistic, looking drivetrain as well, but that’s, basically it with this little rc. If you want to know more information on it, we will have it linked in the description down below where you can read out more on it and also where you can buy it from, but look there’s enough talking amber it’s about time. We take this thing to hulu quarry and see how well this thing can perform here. We are on location at halls, will quarry a volcano it’s erupted and it’s dead, but nevertheless it’s a volcano, and here we have it. The arizona i’m excited to see how well this thing can perform when we put it up against our three crawler challenges: remote on first plug the little itty bitty battery in and turn the car on. There we go, we’ve got turning, we have proportional throttle, the lights. Go when we’re going when you reverse the rear lights, come on cool, amber it’s time we get into level number one, the dirty road taking it nice and slow okay. I should give it a bit of speed. This one feels a little bit more bouncy on here. I feel like oh it’s, got indicators as well amber. Does it yeah when you’re turning? I love that touch on these little rc’s. I think that’s, really cool adds a bit more scale, yeah detail to it. I’M standing back a bit more because i don’t get touched by those prickles.
I love the look of this truck though, and do you know what’s so good about filming in new zealand what’s that no snakes? Okay, no snakes? No, nothing! That’S great! Just joe’s, hey just joe’s, just joe what joe’s snake? No, what no that sounded bad here. She comes she’s about to finish the duty row to make a left turn onto the grass, see how well it performs on some relatively long grass gon na try. Okay, hopefully she didn’t flip this time on that toyota. She did flip here: okay, i’m, going to take a different route as long as you get through that gate, it’s a little worried about one life beach as well: heaven’s gate – Music! Oh! No! If i flip it’s the wind’s fault it’s getting close there, oh there we go. That is your first and only life amber oh let’s, get to the gate yeah this one. Oh, this one’s much bouncier it’ll, be because it is a lot lighter, getting all plastic components. Ah, what what forgive me keep doing, that okay, you’re at the gate, we’ll call that the gates there it is. That is the gate right there guys we’ll call that a pass, so the arizona yellow jeep has successfully passed level number one. It is time now to move on to level number two we’re now on level number two of our crawler challenge, and this one was the rocky road i think it speaks for itself, let’s get into it see if we can make it and of course i am Now, on the controls, and so far it is doing quite well, you can see the suspension is a bit springy here we go hand to god.
Come on boy. This won’t be so cocky now amber, no it’s like a little bit easier. We’Ve both been pretty cocky on these ones. I know see that one’s picking up, i don’t want the wind to blow this car off the mountain every excuse under the sun. I think this little rc would look awesome if it had um a little interior. Oh yeah. This see this is the cheaper model compared to that uh toyota, that one’s got the interior it’s got metal, whereas this one’s all plastic it’s a little bit cheaper, but it still is decent quality it’s still very nice, yeah it’s still really cool, but it’s. All about the crawling capabilities, and so far it’s doing quite well amber. So this is really testing its capabilities over these mess of boulders yeah on this volcano they’re a lot bigger than they look. Look at that indicator going going left the back wheel yeah. He got it up there we’re nearly up we’re nearly completed so close. Oh no that’s, my two live star was my yeah that’s me done. I didn’t make it. I challenge to the two ever oh well amber. I guess it’s going to be up to you. Can you can take over from here and see if you can get any further amber’s out of the controls for level two see if you can get it any further up there? Okay, hey! I think i might get it here. We go just needed a better crawler and the controls yeah better driver always helps.
Ah oh yeah. She says that she gets herself stuck. Oh, oh, no he’s stuck. Can you get out of it? There we go. I got it she’s, nearly at the top there guys. If you haven’t tried crawling, you got to go, try that is actually where we started rc adventures to give them an amber. We had the trx4 that’s riddle begun. Oh my gosh, it might seem a little bit silly. Some people might think. Oh crawling ice kitties play but it’s. Not it really is fun, especially when you get to technical parts, oh yeah, which is what channels level three is all about, and if you haven’t seen the video where i build my own crawler go and watch it go check. It out go give it a like. Oh no one life, one flip there we go. Okay come on come on, but that’s, okay, this car has clearly proven its capability and we got it on challenge number two well done, but the real test is yet to come. It is time amber to move on to challenge number three. We are now on challenge number three: the volcanic slope with our arizona, amazon controls, let’s see what you’ve got all right. I can make it up further than the toyota i’m, a little bit skeptical, but it’s not doing too bad it’s not doing too bad so far, it’s doing better than the toyota disc. Is it, though i don’t know you might have spoke too soon there? Oh, no! The problem with this one is, it is lighter than toyota, so i don’t know if it’s going to make it up as far but the weight distribution might happen a little bit i’m.
Not too sure. Oh, maybe not so there we have it amber’s first crash and you have to use the hand of god one lie and there she goes. Oh nice and easy. Oh, what a bit no but that’s your lifestyle does that exist. You didn’t make it as far as the toyota. I didn’t think it would, because it is lighter, but now i’m going to have a go and see how high i can get there we go. What are you doing? We will be doing a comparison in the future of the arizona and the toyota land cruiser because they are comparable Music, oh you’re, doing quite well. There we go. I do like the body of this jeep yeah same not officially licensed, but it still does. Look really. Nice this is this, is the hard part, look how steep that is. Look yeah! Oh! I might be using my hand to go there. We go what’s the fluff when you go through this part, yeah! Oh, no, oh flips! Again, oh no! There we have it well. I think we have to call it there. It done pretty. Well, though it passed everyone without a hitch. I think you know you might have it once past level, two just a little bit hard. There did roll level three, no hope but level. Three is a very challenging level, i think. Maybe the t rex could do it and i am about let’s go home and give these guys an initial thought on the arizona well back in the studio after a pretty decent run.
So we can give you guys our opinion and pros and cons with the four wheel, drive arizona, so amber start us off. The pros pro for me is this: crawler is such a vibrant color? I think it’s really nice. Looking the small little details from the side mirrors to the door handles and the windscreen wipers, i think, it’s a really nice looking truck from the outside it’s, also a pretty capable truck and that’s a pro for me. It’S reasonably capable not as capable as the likes of a tx4 or a tx6 or any of those big crawlers, but for a mini scale, style, crawler, it’s, reasonably capable and also it comes a ready to run lipo battery charge included and the lipo battery did have A run time of 30 minutes just over 30 minutes. So those are the pros that we have with this arizona it’s time to look at the cons. So amber start us off with the cops starting off with the cons, i’m gon na, say it i’m. A little bit upset that this looks so nice from the outside. I do wish it had an interior and, i think, with an interior, it would have added a little bit of weight as well, which would have helped the overall performance yeah this rc another con. That is quite light very light and in those windy conditions i feel like they actually affected its crawling capability. So, like amber said, if it did have a nice interior, not only would it look a little bit a little bit more scale when looking inside the car, but it also would probably actually help its performance.
Another con is that the suspension was fairly springy fairly bouncy. They’Re, not oil filled they’re, just plastic shafts with a spring, so it’s, quite springy, and finally, with the lights they only came on when you’re, actually accelerating or reversing. If you weren’t using the throttle, the lights switch themselves off. So, quite often, if you’re sort of feathering the throttle it with the lights, just flick around for grabs. Look around flicker, often didn’t, really like that. I would have heard it. They remained on so overall it’s a nice looking rc that’s, reasonably capable and perfect for a beginner. However, it lacks the interior detail and is a little bit overpriced in our opinion, if you can find this on sale for under about 90, i think it’d be a good buy, but remember hey guys. This is just our opinion. Just our opinion. You’Ve got yours. We’Ve got ours, and that is absolutely fine and we want to hear what you guys have to say about this mini crawler. So let us know in the comments below do you like it? Do you not like it? What are your thoughts and guys, as always, we’re going to be leaving links in the description box down below of where you can pick up this car and it’s heavier and more capable cousin in the description box down below?
