HobbyKing 1/16 BL 4WD Mini Rally Car

Got one of these recently.

Good price and in the US warehouse. Funny thing is both the included ESC and servo had Futaba plugs.

Haven't seen them in a while. Easy enough to shave off the offending ridge to fit my non-Futaba Rx but thought I might give a heads up. Maybe they're trying to get rid of old stock? Newbies may not know why their plugs won't fit.

That little ridge along the left side (as pictured) of the plug must be shaved off to get it to fit other Rxs.

Fun and fast. I'm not a car guy and just got this because I to like to play. Have a surface radio so $80 or so for a decent car was a good deal. Not for off road as not much clearance.
