So, you want a ready to run RC Car that is affordable but can still be used on and off-road. If that is the case then the Hunter Truggy – Electric RC Car fits the bill perfectly. It is the kind of car that you may buy as your first dip into the radio-controlled world or maybe something you would buy as a present. There are plenty of children who would love to open this on their birthday or at Christmas.

This model is the brother of the Trojan Buggy and boasts adjustable suspension, aluminium suspension shocks, waterproof ESC and high precision receiver and servo – both of which are waterproof. It has a powerful RC380 Engine to really give it a kick. Just charge the 7.2V battery and you are good to go.

It is a 1:16th Scale model with the dimensions of 280mm long by 191mm wide and 110mm tall. It is on the smaller end size wise but that is partly what makes it a perfect starting vehicle. The last thing you need to do as a beginner is to go out and buy a £400 petrol RC car that you just do not understand.

One of the main things that make this a good choice is that it is ready to run which means there is no assembly required. Whether it is furniture or toys many people do not like to do the building themselves which is where pre- constructed cars like this come in.

It comes with a brushed motor which although not as good as a brushed motor is plenty for a vehicle of this size. It has four-wheel drive which makes it perfect for off road driving. It can of course drive on road and has some superb grip on its tyres to help make that possible.

We have considered other reviews and the general theme is that this is a great car for someone to begin with. Some say it is great for children or adults to practise on before progressing to Nitro or Petrol Cars.

It is a great little introduction into the radio-controlled world and with it being ready to run and powered by an electric battery it really cannot come any easier. For the price this really is a must have which is why we strongly recommend it.

HSP XSTR Electric Radio Controlled Buggy 2.4Ghz – Pro Brushless Version

HSP XSTR Electric Radio Controlled Buggy - Pro Brushless Version

HSP XSTR Electric Radio Controlled Buggy – Pro Brushless Version

If you are looking for an award winning electric RC car then take a good look at the HSP XSTR Electric Radio Controlled Buggy. This car was named the Auto Express Best Buy RC Car for 2016. It is a 1:10 scale four-wheel drive electrically powered car that can reach ridiculous speeds even off road. There is a lot to go through so let us begin.

The first thing to really talk about when looking at this car is to make sure that you know this is an upgraded car with a FSD 3300KV brushless motor, Lipo battery and Lipo charger. This shouldn’t be confused with the less powerful version which is powered with the NiMh battery. This is a tiny yet very important difference.

So, what does HSP XSTR Electric RC Buggy offer you?

One of the things we have heard mentioned time and time again is how fast the HSP XSTR Electric Radio Controlled Buggy is. There is a good reason for this – It is true. This car is really fast especially if you upgrade it from the 7.4 volt battery up to the 11.1 volt. In fact, it is important to understand that although quick it is also well built which is of course important for an off-road buggy. It will be going over jumps fast and will leave the ground. Impacts can take their toll so it needs to be strong and this model definitely has what it takes to survive the bumps.

A smaller consideration is the look of the car. You can see from the picture that it is black and blue. This can be changed to a blue and orange. This is particularly good if you are for example buying the same car for a brother and sister. Changing the colour could potentially stop arguments making it a consideration worth thinking about. I can see myself doing this in the future with my children.

Specifications

Manufacturer: HiSpeed
Scale: 1:10
Build: RTR (Ready to Run)
Drive: 4 Wheel Drive
Terrain: Off Road (and on if you choose)
Radio: 2.4Ghz
Type: Buggy
Motor: FSD 3300KV Brushless Motor
Dimensions: 400mm x 250mm x 160mm
Wheelbase: 275mm
Gear Ratio: 7.38:1
Ground Clearance: 26mm
Wheel Width: 29/32mm
Battery: Lipo 7.4V 3500mAh

Note: You will need 8x AA batteries for the controller.

The HSP XSTR Electric Radio Controlled Buggy In Summary

We feel that as off-road electric cars go this has got to be considered right up there with the best. It is fast, robust and has already won an award. We think it looks good in whatever colour you wish to get it in and just a look at the car you can see that it is top quality. If you turn up at the tracks with this car your friends will want to know more. It should also be pointed out that as hobby grade models go this does have everything that a hobbyist could ever want. Did we mention that it is fast?

Note: Remember that off-road cars can also be used on-road although this is a waste. We plan to do a blog post about how to get the most out of your off-road car if you do not have a track nearby but until then why not just check it out up and down curbs or in your garden.

AND DON’T FORGET THE BATTERIES!

Self Build Raptor RC Electric Truggy – Brushed Version 2.4GHz

Self Build Raptor RC Electric Truggy - Brushed Version 2.4GHz

Self Build Raptor RC Electric Truggy – Brushed Version 2.4GH

One of the joys of electric RC cars are the models you get to build yourself like the Self Build Raptor Electric Truggy. This is the Brushed Version meaning it comes with a brushed motor. You will learn all about that as you set about building this most wonderful and fast model. This buggy is so much more than the stunning looks you can see in the picture.

This is a high performance and high-speed vehicle that you get to build yourself. The building process helps you to feel more connected with your car as well as to learn how they all fit together. This will make it extra special when the time comes to race it round the streets or your local track.

Self-build Electric cars are great because it is where you start your radio-controlled education. We wouldn’t recommend a self-build Nitro or Petrol RC Car to begin with because of the fuel considerations but an electric model is ideal. They are powered with a battery that simply needs charging. Construction typically takes 8-12 Hours using the instruction manual which is provided. This is a very detailed booklet.

Driving the Raptor RC Electric Truggy

With a length of 410mm and a width of 330mm you can see that this is a wide vehicle which gives it a low centre of gravity and allows you to do all sorts of manoeuvres without flipping the car. Of course, it is designed for off-road so why not see how far you can push it? Its four-wheel drive gives you great power and control no matter what the terrain. This Raptor is a race winner.

If you are a fan of Lego then maybe this will take that interest in building things to the next level. While we love Lego nothing in the Lego world moves quite like a radio-controlled car. It could well be the hobby that takes you from childhood into your adult years especially if you progress onto Petrol RC Cars.

Self Build Raptor RC Electric Truggy – A Little More Detail

Perhaps you want to beat your friends? Well this has a great chance. Finally it is good value for money but all the cars re recommend are.
