That is just the kit, it doesn't include a servo, receiver, transmitter, battery or charger.

That's also an old and rare kit, so if you do drive it and break something it'll be hard or impossible to find parts.

I got this car years ago. It's great engineering design, but at best it has a stock motor included and a mechanical speed controller. You need to add the rest yourself.

Considering it's still mint, I would be very careful to run it. It's a great car, but a shame to break something on it while bashing. If you want to run this type of car outside in the dirt, I would suggest getting a used one. Spares are not available in the stores, as wparsons mentioned, but most is still available on eBay if you look around.

Good deal for the price but I do not think this is the ideal option. This looks like it is a few years old. Likely does not have a storage function. With the separate balancer the charger cannot detect overcharging/discharging of a cell. It will work but requires some more maintenance than most of today's charging and balancing combos. My two cents...

"Radio Controlled Aeroplane"? And the picture shows a charger. Seems like a decent one, just a little bulky.

iv just got it today yes its pritty big but omg it beeps every time you press a button lol
i know it was listed wrong i think the balancer is part of the charger and sold with it from new.
it save what you was on last i'll proberly buy another newer one but my small charger i got needs watching at the moment it cuts off sometimes and dont give a full charge with my ni-cd so this will help me out a lot.it chargis from 0.1a to 5a.
i havent got any lipos yet waiting for a customer of mine to pay up so i can buy that trooper and a 3s 5000ah
thanks mike

If the charger stops too soon with NiCad or NiMh, either the charge current is set too high, connection is flaky, or the delta peak value is set too low, so minor fluctuations in the voltage during charge are seen as signs of full battery.

I had such a type of charger as well, would often cut off way before the battery was full. A charger with adjustable peak detection works much better.
