R/C buggy, my first hobby R/C

Hello guys, Ryan here from rcreviewer, bringing you guys my review about the R/c buggy by www.rcbazaar.com

It was 7 months back when I got some interest in R/C cars. I searched a $40 car and bought it. After a few months, I got known to hobby R/Cs. I thought to go with branded ones, but in my country, a $250 car is sold for $500. It is just insane. Even a 3000kv motor for $170!

So I found out a site which gave me a $200 buggy in $210. It was not branded, but it had every thing to start with.

So without wasting time, lets review it. The buggy I had has white paint job with a bit akward looking pink lining strips on  it. After a few days I was comfortable with it. The wheels were not chromed and even I didn’t want it. The rubber compound is medium. It has 2650kv brushless motor. The servo is of savox and works well. They even include a 7.4 volt LiPo pack with a wall charger. It is just good. I would not like to get it on the dirt for sometime.

The other products which I buy is usually of my friend or buy and resell them.

Hope you guys liked it. Good bye.

Team Losi Racing : Driving Thoughts

Hello guys, Ryan here from rcreviewer bringing you guys the driving thoughts for my TLR 22-4.

I was not posting for some time as I was finding  new products. And I just forgot I had to drive and post abot TLR 22-4

As of the photos on the net, The electronics shown were dummy or whatever, but I used the following parts –  Castle vapor pro, Leopard Hobbies 8.5T motor, Savox all metal gear servo and 2s saddle pack. Saddle packs are now-a-days common for racing class buggies.

After charging the LiPo pack, I took it to a track and it was perfect. But I have to tell in detail, so here it is. That long chassis is so low and  it is just perfect. The spoiler at the bac was really working good. The room for motor is a bit less. I usually don’t get along with belt system, so I was feeling a bit uncomfortable. Although it had a LCG body, it will roll over if you overpower it on a turn. In the air, it feels like, like , I just cant tell. It balances itself in the air and its finesse increases. The shock oil provided with it felt a bit softer for my track.

It is a very good kit and I just love it. I will send it back to my friend, I assembled it for my friend. I liked and I hope they give us a traill truck like 22 – 4.

Team Losi Racing 22-4 : First impressions

Hello guys Ryan here from rcreviewer, bringing you guys the first impressions of TLR 22-4.

Many of you know about the TLR 22, which was a dominating racing type buggy. And here it comes, faster and stronger than ever – TLR 22-4. It is a 4wd buggy with belt system.

The chassis is aluminum anodized which is very strong. It has a 3 belt drivetrain. It has a front motor mount, which is centralized. It has Big Bore 12mm emulsion shocks. And it has many more things, but it will be very enjoyable. I don’t think that LCG chassis would be good for some good off-road bashing.

Having some good expectations from the vehicles, we will see tomorrow whether it will stand my expectations or not.

Good bye guys. Hope got some help.

Traxxas Telluride : Driving & Final Thoughts

Hello guys, Ryan here from rcreviewer, bringing you guys the driving review of Traxxas Telluride.

I posted the first impressions of the vehicles itself. And now we will see how it drives.

At first battery drive, the telluride was having different Performaces at different surfaces. At a gravel area, the car going good, I mean it was going pretty fast for terrain like that and even for a car like that . After a drive for a moment, I understood that it was not like a summit, as summit was way more better than the telluride.

On the stock NiMH, It topped out at 15 mph. You will still get the same speed even if you put a 2 cell LiPo in it. When you are going to drive it fast on off-road, it will loo and feel like a bit toy-ish.

After charging the battery again, I took it to a more rougher terrain, It was performing the best there. But the rock Crawling wasn’t good enough as summit. The stock tires were now feeling that they  were sort of worn out as the tires were loosing traction on hard soil. The steering was moderately good.

For kids around 10, this R/C IS PERFECT, seriously PERFECT. The setup is very simple everything is very good. But for adults, it is just Ok. Lets see what it can do on real rocks.

I had put on new wheels and tires on it and the performance improve like anything. But during rock crawling, it was better than before. I even put a 2 cell 5000 MAh LiPo in it but there was not much power difference.

Now on track (obviously off road), stock condition. I took it to my local racetrack and raced with it. It has a lot of body roll and the center of gravity is also high. After a few laps, I felt that the servo was a bit slow.

Final thoughts : So, final thoughts after running it and checking it out, it is a trail truck which has the potential but you need upgrades for it. It is a good truck for kids. And here ends my relation with Traxxas Telluride.

Hope you guys got some help. Good Buy.

 

 

 

Traxxas Telluride : First impressions

Hello guys Ryan here from rcreviwer, bringing you guys the review of Traxxas Telluride 4 x 4.

Traxxas telluride, the traxxas summit, or is it? This can be a question after seeing it for the first time. NAH!, IT IS A STAMPEDE 4 X4. But the setup and the body is different. It sort of a trail truck. Which reasonable and costs around $ 250. It includes a 7-cell NiMH          battery pack(Fig 1). As the cost is low, they have downgraded the vehicle electronics like – The motor is a brushed one – titan 12t motor(Fig 2). It has a brushed ESC. Sadly the receiver isn’t waterproof, but they include a waterproof box for the receiver       (Fig 3). The camber links are nonadjustable but thankfully the springs are not the progressive ones  as they are so awful(Fig 4).  When we will compare it with a stampede,  you will find out that it is a bit narrower. The tires are also narrow that is because they use short course truck tires(Fig 5).

I am expecting some good rock crawling performance from the truck. Lets see if it goes good.

R/C Guide : Final Words

Hello guys Ryan here from rcreviewer, bringing you guys the last step of our guide.

so as you know almost everything a person needs to know when he will buy his first R/C.I haven’t told you about the nitro vehicles as you wont buy it as many of you would be living in populated areas. I will be posting reviews now of the vehicles which have come to the market in a month or so.

Hope guys enjoyed the guide. Good buy.

 

R/C Guide : Electronics explanation

Hello guys Ryan here from rcreviewer, bringing you guys the next step of the guide.

Electronics : there are different types of electronics. They are  –

ESC : Electronic Speed Controller is a device which controls the power of batteries which is delivered to the motor and servo. They can be programed to stop reversing etc. Castle creations provide good ESCs. They even make packages which include motor and ESC both.

Motor : Motors are of two types – Brushed and Brushless. Brushed motors deliver limited amount of torque and speed. Brushless motors are deliver more torque, have more power and most importantly they last much more longer than the brushed ones. Brushless motor are measured in Kv and T. Kv is the amount which is related to the speed of the vehicle. Higher Kv motors are used by racers and bashers which want speed. T is the amount which is related to torque. The higher the turn, the more powerful will be the mototr. T motors are used mainly by rock crawler.

Servo : Servo are the units which are responsible for the turning of wheels. There are many brands, but the Savox servo works best FOR ME.

Batteries : Batteries are of two types – nickel metal hydride and LiPo. NiMH batteries are relatively more heavier than LiPo. They are measured in MAh, the greater the better. LiPo is lighter and it usually comes in a hard case. LiPo can be very dangerous as they can explode when the connectors are wrong or when the batteries are charged inadequately.

nimh and lipo respectively.

Hope you guys lied it. Good buy.
