Mini-Review

1/24 Rock Crawler - Basher Rocksta (RTR version)


After Christmas 2015 I got an email from Hobbyking with their latest product releases and this badass looking mini/micro rock crawler came out. I ordered the RTR version from the international warehouse and it arrived in about 2.5 weeks times. I'm impressed!

I'm going to do a video series on my youtube channel. I'll post the videos here starting with the unboxing. I'll do a running video and final review video too. If there's some updates to it I'll post those too!

Just some first impressions, I like the look, with the engraved body panels makes it look really cool IMO. Plus this is 4WD (motor on axle) and 4WS (servos on axle too). Similar to the way the Redcat RS10 steers, it has 4 separate modes of steering. And you can switch those modes on the radio on the fly when you are navigating the RC!

Even though it's RTR I discovered it doesn't come with a lipo! So if you don't have any small 2s lipos handy, order one up extra or you'll be stuck with a new RC with no way to run it.

Ok here's my unboxing video. Any one else have thought please join the conversion on this thread. I think this will be a cool RC.

If you bought the RTR version - you'll notice there's no battery included. And the Lipos that fit from Hobbyking are all backordered. So I made a video showing you a good battery solution.

Not sure if that's what's it meant for... this thing moves maybe 5km/hr. I wonder if you ramped it up you'd likely blow the diffs out of it.

Here's my final review video on this cool mini rock crawler. I give it a thumbs up! It has a few issues like a stubborn battery tray lid but overall this RC is worth a look if you are looking to purchase an indoor crawler (it can go outside too)!
