Micro RC cars race 7$ each! Christmas Time already for me and my kids


Hi,

I am a french RC pilot and I wanted to share with you this deal because my 2 sons (4 and 7 years) and I are really having fun racing with RC cars but the biggest concern is that all the Toys RC cars in Europe are stuck on 27Mhz which avoids to make them compete against each others.

And I found these mini racers for 8$ including shipping!! I was sceptic at first but then we tried them and it's really infinite fun.

8 differents models



Watch out: I bought 4 because there are 4 different Frequencies but I got 2 with same Freq., the black one is 40Mhz and not 27Mhz as advertised!

Runtime per charge: More then 10mn (Actually they seem to run forever, we always charge them after 10mn to have full power)
Charging Time: less then 5mn
Lights: (Front + rear)


In the Box:



4 road cones / The Car / the Tx (needs 2 AA batteries)

Inside:



Videos:

Sorry for the bad footage, it's my phone and holding the phone while driving is kinda hard and my 4 yeared old son is not a very good pilot yet

If you bend the antenna you can drive on 2 wheels which pleases the kids.

I made a racetrack for my kids with wooden railroad but I lost the photo.

If you don't like rc product reviews get lost.

I am sure other folks here want to have fun with their kids without spending a bunch.

I bought 4 of these from banggood for about $8 each with free postage and gave a couple to my niece and nephew, they are great little cars.

I changed the tiny nimh inside of one to a little 1s lipo i got out of an old pico-z and it is wild! I chopped out some plastic and took out the charge port so i can fit the lipo inside.. i charge the lipo on the pico-z tx.

One of the drive wheels was not touching the ground which made it turn when i pressed forward. So i added some tape under the tire to even it out and now it drives straight. Quite fun

Will post some video soon.
