They got. Some of us go on to collect hundreds, if not thousands of the thing as adults as a collection. Them is highly highly addictive if you could fall in love with these things and my latest addition to the family, i think i need to go and get it. Hang on did that just move well indeed, it did welcome to my smallest ever car review. This is a 176 scale. Mazda rx, 7 working lights all round on the car gon na have to be careful. This doesn’t get run over by one of my bigger ones. Oh, my cat eats it plus. The pandemic has raised the interest in small scale, rc cars. This thing takes that to a completely different level, keep watching see what we’ll get for our money and then we’ll do a full test on this thing see just how much fun it is Music. So this really is the smallest rc car unboxing i’ve ever done. We’Ve got a 176 scale master rx7 here when i say ready to run, you are going to need four air batteries for the transmitter, but other than that it should be pretty much ready to go. So what do we get for our money? Our instruction manual? Definitely a good idea to read that how to charge the battery, because the battery is built into the car so i’m going to talk you through that step by step. When i get the transmitter together and the car itself well, i said the car itself that’s the car and it comes with two spare bodies which you can paint in whatever color you wish to.
That is not something i’d seen come in, particularly at this price point. We’Ll get the car out in just a second, but the key bit of this is actually the transmitter that it comes with. It’S actually got a built in charger for the car there, as the battery is contained within the car itself. However, it also comes with a separate usb charging lead so i’m going to use that to charge the car in the first instance. While i talk you through how to set the transmitter up now. One point to note, regardless of whether you use the usb cable to charge the car or the port on the transmitter, the car needs to be turned off while it’s charging, and it has a red light on on the car when it’s charging. When that red light goes out, the car’s charged should take around 40 minutes and you’re actually going to need four aaa batteries, not for double a batteries. As i stated at the start now after the speed i’m going to charge the car via the the main usb lead on here, you can actually charge it from the transmitter. You turn this slot on the side. Using a coin or similar, you put your four triple a batteries in there push that down push that down twist your coin or plastic piece in there. You know the usb charger you can see there to get it to work. You slide this across, but this will spring back, so you need to slide it across turn.
It through 90 degrees, that’s locked in the upright position, making sure your car’s turned off and click that on there your transmitter is now ready to go together. You can be forgiven, it will go on both ways, but then actually to get it on and looking like a normal transmitter. Click it on that way. At this point, your transmitter should be turned off, car should be turned off, car remains, turned off, you’ve got a charging switch on the top there. You click that on and the little blue light comes on there, but the charging light is the red one. Underneath when this light goes out, the car is fully charged and ready to use but, as i say, for speed today, i’m going to charge it on the main usb charger, but it’s very neat that you can charge it up directly from the transmitter like that. Now i will say at this price point: this transmitter is absolutely second to none in terms of the features of the aperture which i can show you, while it’s still charging three speed positions: 25 50 and 100 percent reversible steering on there. We’Ve got steering dual rate. Steering trim throttle dual rate and throttle trim on there absolutely outstanding there’s, a lot of big name manufacturers that don’t provide transmitters as good as this it’s got another two channels on it. Now, what did the channel three and channel four buttons do? Well, if you press channel three button, it changes, it says it changes the multi colored light on the car i’m thinking.
What on earth does it mean it’s, actually changing the color of this light underneath that shines down on the car? So technically it is changing the light on the car and the channel 4 button is a three stage. Switch first stage turns off the front and rear lights. Second, position used to turn on the front and rear lights and the third stage switches the headlights to flash quickly so we’ll. Try that when the car’s fully charged anyway well that’s the car’s charging quick, look through the manual there’s, a good section on troubleshooting on here. It shows you how to change over to one of the two spare bodies, which i guess you can paint in whatever color you want. There are no stickers to block the windows out with so you’re going to need something to master windows with, but it even has part numbers for all the individual parts on here. A little exploded diagram as to how it all fits together. Should you need to do any work on it and literally, if anything breaks on it, everything has got individual part numbers on for the money. This is absolutely fantastic. A lot of people could learn a lot from this and one last thing you can actually buy miniature tracks to go and race these on your side, because you can race several of them at a time 1.2 meters by 0.8, of a meter wide on there. Anyway. I think that battery should be about charged by now, well, it’s, not quite charged as yet, which gives me time to show you the spare bodies which, when i’ve lifted it out of the case, they’ve got all of the parts included in the masking parts.
For the headlights on there contained within there, so we’ll need to read a manual as to how to put those together and take the body on and off, but that is all fully explained in the manual. So what color should i paint these two? But spare bodies have you seen the comment section below the video and, if you are using the transmitter to charge your car when you’re done simply turn that through 90 degrees and that drops back down again power on on here power on on there yeah? That did just fall on the floor and we’re ready to go well. The level of control it has it’s, actually pretty darn good steering radius is ridiculously good and a little some speed on there. If you want it oh about, if you do subscribe, do what kev talbot says hit the bell. Sorry couldn’t resist getting that one in, but you can have fun with this thing in the just the smallest of places. It really is just like a micro rc car. In fact, the transmitter is considerably better than quite a few, but i only cost considerably more than this did it’s got quite a ton of speed when you floor it well, the lights can be completely turned off, turned on at the front and at the rear. Third mode set some flash in and you can even have under body lighting. How cool does that thing? Look like that’s so fast and furious to my mind on there or makes you wonder if they’re going to bring a bigger one of these out.
Although the love of this thing is the small scale, you can have great fun with this thing, not even going fast and trust me. If you’ve got a carrot dog, this thing is going to drive them absolutely crazy, steering on it it’s very direct, and you can cut enough power to put your back out if you really want reverses, have quite some speed. Nonetheless, quite a lot of fun to join. I have to say if you’re in tart wheels you’re going to want to get one of these well, if you’re the kind of person that wants to take your rpc fix with you absolutely anywhere you go, then i would say this is definitely worthy of consideration. Building the speed up on it, it will go pretty quickly, so it’s fully proportional takes a little bit of getting used to and you can’t tune the jewelry up and down, which makes it a little more agile on air so i’m, not flying on here. This time, i’ve actually tried it in anger, but uh it has a decent centerpiece, oh defensive, place on. It puts over quite a knock like a hot wheels white doughnut, a hot wheels that does doughnuts smooth is the key to this thing. I think it would be better suited almost the bigger turns than this to my dog he’s, absolutely fascinated by any mario arty what’s that what’s that what’s that Music anyway, i do appreciate, with this car it’s very difficult to actually demonstrate it practically.
But hopefully i have on the floor there. You only need incredibly small areas to run it. Four foot by six is going to seem absolutely huge for running a car like this, and i believe you can run about eight of these. At the same time, 2.4 gigahertz radio, so none of them are going to interfere with each other. You can even set up many drag races with these things. The fact is proportional and so small, smaller actually than a whole, slightly smaller, actually than a hot wheels. Car is absolutely incredible, anyway, bit of fun link to it below the video, if you’re interested, because this is a nice one that you can take away on holiday with you that’s all you’ve got to pack in your suitcase well thumbs up.
