The RC car was around 70 Canadian dollars and was advertised as highly durable. I bought from Bang Good and received it late by a week! They gave me 50 Bang Good points because it was late, which was a VERY small amount, around 15 cents.
The RC car was great, I had driven it through grass, stones, and pavement and it handled all terrains well. The only problem was that it went to fast for its own good, for it kept on flipping over and that the motherboard always got to hard.
Well, one day, when I was turning it off, it was soo hard to turn off, so when I tried to do it, I only succeeded in pulling the switch on the board (It was directly attached to the motherboard). After pulling the switch off, it started steaming, and I saw a small flame burning up a component in the motherboard!
Well, it ended up that the burnt component was actually part of the board and a small resistor, which cut off the path for it to be able to go backwards.
After that, the RC car could no longer go backwards, and continuously lost connection with the controller. Also, the motherboard got heated a lot easier and, therefore, could only be driven once in a long time.
Some things that I learned from this, was to make sure you had warranties for the RC car on the website (this one didn't, I was so unhappy when I found out), and I also learned more about how the parts and the switch worked. I might also disconnect the old motherboard and find a new one, maybe also a new motor and servo all together, and only keep the chassis.
Well, thanks for reading, and I hope you learned something from my experience!
The car was well built, has independent suspension, proportional steering and speed. The maximum speed was around 25 mph and had awesome turning capabilities. It was four-wheel drive and used 2 AA Li-po 3.7-volt batteries. It was nice, but the springs immediately got really hard to move after 3 days of using it.
