WLtoys A303 Buggy

I may have mentioned I picked up some bargains just before Christmas and the WLtoys A303 buggy was one of them .

Remote Distance: 50m
Type: RC Off-road Electric Car
Speed: About 35km/h
Charging Time: About 3 hours
Playing Time: 10mins
Car Battery: 6.4V 1000mAh Rechargeable Battery
Motor: 390 brushed motor
Brand: WLtoys
Material: Electronic components, Plastic, Metal
Remote Control: 2.4GHz Wireless Radio Control
Transmitter Power: 3 x 1.5V AA battery

The transmitter looks to be the same as the one bundled with the 12428 4x4 buggy from WLtoys .

The A303 is perhaps a little on the chunky side @ 938 Grams wet .

The A303 is almost as big as the 12428 ( Wheel base )

The 303 does sit a little low to the ground to be a true off road'er . I found the 303 was really dragging itself over the grass in our back yard . I would imagine this would really load up the motor / esc possibly creating heat and other issues . I would suggest this buggy might be ideal for flat dirt tracks / roads and such where the ground clearance would not be an issue .

I really like the turning circle on this one , much tighter than the 12428 . In fact I found it a little disconcerting at times as I over corrected ( having got used to the 12428 ) You can move the control rods so as to make steering less sensitive ( larger turning circle .

In fact there is a reasonable amount of tuning that can be done to the A303 to change its handling ( See Pictures )

I don't know that the A303 is in production any longer as I picked mine up dirt cheap ( So cheap its embarrassing ) But I would suggest it might make for an excellent first buggy .

I have done a fair amount of bumping ( running into things ) from over correcting the steering and the A303 looks to be very strong .

Negatives :
1) Small battery
2) Low ground clearance
3) Heavy
4) Battery ( 6.6v ) should have been 7.2v
5) Battery has no balance lead

Positives :
1) Mine was so cheap I wont tell you
2) Strong
3) Seriously adjustable
4) Even with a small battery offers decent run time
5) Good steering
6) Fast enough for me
7) Looks to be very well made
