i hva econtacted rcx and it is for sure 1/10 scale not 1/8 packaging error .

Totally new to this level of RC. Glad to find some discussion about Exceed crawlers without all the bashing.

I recently came by one of these (blue) but really only have experience with the walmart kiddy rc cars. Anyone know of any resources where I can get some heads up on the lingo and maybe the definitions to some of the acronyms especially regarding the Tx(see I know one already)?

I hate when I can't get into a new hobby because those in the know just look down their nose at you. So far this seems like the friendliest and most cordial RC forum I've come across.

I figure this is probably a good enough unit to cut my teeth on before moving up to one of the name brands.

on the truck it will more than make you happy .
as far as lingo google rc lingo i dont know of any other way other than keep reading the forums . make sure you post pics of your ride !!

The abbreviations for the more advanced controls were confusing but I found a glossary that helped a lot. It seems a little less mysterious now than it did years ago when I tried my hand at it. Some things are quite a bit more user friendly and automated like linking the radios.

I don't really know how these stand up to the other brands but I'm pretty impressed. In my rush I ran out and started playing as soon as it was charged and after about 20 minutes a wheel fell off.:o Totally my fault for not checking everything.

Tried mounting a couple of video cameras (one was 3D) to it but they had too narrow field of view.

Is there a minimum # of posts before I can post pictures?

#11 rcphreak Mar 07, 2011 06:48 PM

un sure its been a while i think so ( on the pics ) and yes with any rtr rc when new check everything and yes this includes the name brands .

What kind of runtimes do you guys get with the supplied battery? Thinking of going lipo, but not sure what will fit in there.

I want to get the 1/16th version of this truck.
Does it seem to be put together pretty well.
All I read are bad things about exceed rc stuff.
But for 100 RTR for the 1/16th thats hard to beat.
