Wltoys 1/28

Has any body saw the new wltoys 1/28 series?
Short course: http://m.banggood.com/Wltoy-K999-128...-p-980186.html
Beetle: http://m.banggood.com/WLtoys-P939-12...-p-980188.html
Rally Car: http://m.banggood.com/Wltoys-K989-12...-p-980187.html
Drift : http://m.gearbest.com/rc-cars/pp_197346.html
Monster truck: http://m.tmart.com/WLtoys-P929-2.4G-...e_p330404.html
Buggy: http://m.tmart.com/WLtoys-K979-2.4G-...d_p330401.html
They have a metal chassis or at least metal skid plate and also have a removable 2s Lipo and are 4wd. Maybe other versions but I haven't found them yet. Looking at a picture of the box in the link to the drift version, it appears there is also a monster truck and a buggy.

It looks like a pretty good design. Maybe they will update the 1/18 series soon.

They have the same looking controller with their A959, maybe they have the same protocol? If they sell a BNF version, although I doubt it, it'd be great $$ saver too.

Also I want larger wheels and tires for more clearance from the ground.

It comes as a touring car, you need to buy drift tires yourself. The construction is different from mini z, so many parts are not compatible. You may consider mini Q, it's compatible with mini z, and parts are available.

I just ordered the K999 from Gearbest.com, it was the cheapest I could find. At the moment it's 51% off, at only $50.

I thought I'd give one a try for some micro FPV or something

I've been eyeing the mini rally cars. Should I save a little more and just get a Losi Micro Rally Brushless or jump on one of these?

I'd like to have one of the Losi micro brushlesses too, but I cabt bring my self to spend that much on an Rc that's that small lol. I think these could be pretty fun, I'm still waiting on mine though. A lot of people like the losi 1/24 scales. You can find parts pretty easily and there are also quite a few upgrades. If I was going to get the brushless rally I'd look on eBay for a used one in good shape, there are usually several for sale on there at any time.

The losis are awesome, but they don't handle dirt and debris too well. The are better suited for indoors use. I'm hoping the wltoys k999 will handle dirt a bit better because of its open chassis. With my losi the closed chassis would fill up with dirt and small stones, which tear up the gears.
