I just found another cheap 1/16 truck/crawler. Similar price and identical look, however shipping is wayyy cheaper. Instead of $140ish (Shipping included) for a Henglong truck from Haya Ltd. you could get an identical looking and identical specs for $70ish(Shipping included) from Banggood, it's not Henglong but it looks identical and specs are the same. It is by WPL and weirdly enough on the Henglong one it says WPL as well...huh...coincidence? I think not!

Here is the link to it: https://www.banggood.com/WPL-WPLB-1-116-2_4G-4WD-RC-Crawler-Off-Road-Car-With-Light-RTR-p-1194636.html?rmmds=newArrivals?utm_source=Youtube&utm_medium=cussku&utm_campaign=sam_1194636&utm_content=1645&p=H6230415351302015048

I ordered one from eBay just in case for the same price as Banggood. It is supposed to be shipped already and if it gets here before Haya, I am going to cancel my Haya order.

They are sold out now. You can check back or just order from Banggood.

Is Banggood taking orders now ? Last time I check it says it won't be in stock until the 15th and you can buy it yet.

The eBay one says it is shipped.

Well it is available again, but they jacked up the price. I paid $70 CAD all in, now they are asking $62 USD and $18 shipping for a total of $80 USD. Basically the same as Haya now.

Wow, that sucks. Not the worst that can happen though. I hope the one on Bang-good doesn't jack up their prices as well. I better get one before the prices soar.

Guys. It looks good on the picture, but it is still only a toy grade! Just like with their tanks, in a few years, they gonna make much better stuff. For now its just a toy.

I don't expect it to be hobby grade (judging by the price, specs and other means of information), but that doesn't mean it's bad! I just want it to play around, modify and experiment with it. In addition, It's cheaper than most, if not all, hobby grade RC's. Furthermore, I have never driven/owned a RC military truck and would really want one (For example: Tamiya's RC truck is over $300 RTR, compare that to $100ish dollars and there is a big difference), this in my opinion it's a good start. 

Keep in mind, I am not attacking your opinion just stating my opinion. And nor am I stating Toy grade RC's are better than hobby grade RC's, I think they both have their ups and downs and I respect both, Toy grades and Hobby grades alike. I appreciate your statement and wish you a good day!  cheers



P.S: Sorry If I sounded mad/angry  Sad  I was just trying to say what I thought about that statement, hope I didn't confuse/upset anyone. And I hope everyone has a happy/good day!  thumbs up...........Or I mean I could just be exaggerating about this entire situation, okay I need to stop now lol.

Nope. Carson from DKLM just got his from China, so this is the Banggood version. Don't know if the Heng Long is exactly the same. I am hoping it is a little more spiff up, but probably just in a nicer box unfortunately.

It looks like you can just slap on a ESC and a receiver, upgrade the motor to a 280 or 380, add servo steering and you will have a pretty good 4x4 for on-road driving at tank meets. Or if you want sound just cover up the cab, add a Clark board and a speaker and Ming is your uncle.

Yeah probably. I hope that's the case. I do have an esc, receiver, remote control and even a 340 motor, so maybe I can try modifying it. I'd image that the 340 motor at top speed with a nimh would probably shred the gears and/or other parts of the truck lol, so I'll probably have to gear it down or something. I'm gonna wait till October to get it from banggood though, since it's almost double the price plus shipping on Ebay.

Banggood is taking order now.

Worst case I will just get a high torque 130 and swap out the existing one.

 Banggood is? Last time I checked it was being restocked in October. I don't know your probably right. I'd imagine these trucks don't need a lot of power to get it going good, I'm kinda worried that my 340 motor might be a bit too much power lol. Good luck with yours!  cheers



Edit: Looks like Banggood made shipping free, so I guess it is now only $53.81ish.
