Description:
JJRC Q39 HIGHLANDER is an excellent 4WD brushed RC desert truck equipped with high-torque servo. It can climb up the slope, accelerate to the highest speed, drift at the corner and brake to a stop without any difficulty. The front and rear differential are placed up and down respectively, making it easier to advance or turn left / right steadily. In addition, because of the four independent shock absorbers, running steadily on rugged roads is a matter of course.

Main Features:
19g high-speed servo generates 1kg torque for acceleration and climbing performance
● Drift easily with 4WD and 2.4GHz proportional control system which ensure the distribution of traction
Independent shock absorbers minimize the vibration and damage on uneven roads
7.4V 1500mAh high-capacity battery offers you great fun of about 15 minutes

Had a good few RC's (Schumacher, HPI, Losi, Thunder Tiger) and they all break component parts, would be sceptical of buying a brand if parts aren't readily available from a UK supplier?

Brought one last year for 60. Best rc car I've owned for the money

For the price compared to Schumacher, hpi,losi, etc you could buy 4. Then you would have plenty of spares. Parts are available just not from your local rc shop. And the quality of these isn't far off the exspencive brands

How does this compare to the Wltoys 12428?

I bought this last year for my 11yr old son. Brilliant RC very fast on and off road. I did manage to break a wheel doing a big jump but i think i paid about £2.50 for a pack of 2 new wheels. Sometimes it does go slightly cheaper on banggood.com

15 minutes playing and how many hours to recharge?

I had the WLTOYS version of this and it lasted a while but eventually it (I think) shredded the gears, took it all apart and couldn't see anything wrong anywhere so dunno what happened. It's resonably fast but really really bad at cornering, it will flip over multiple times unless you are going really slow, I think because suspension is soft and has loads of it especially at back so it's not great for on roads. Maybe this blue JJRC version is different though.

Yeah I broke a wheel too, bit around nut broke so just used the one on the back until I got 2 more wheels!

Any videos with this?

Can it be used on different channels? Thinking of getting two for my nieces

Conclusion
The JJRC Q39 Highlander offers plenty of value for those who want an RC car that has some of the key features found in models that cost significantly more. These features include proportional control for the steering and throttle and independent suspension. Being a $70 RC car, the Highlander lacks metal parts for some key components and overall quality is what you’d expect to find in a sub-$100 model. It does not like to be driven slow and tends to overheat when there isn’t enough airflow around its motor.

However, driving it fast is where the fun is and the Highlander’s 1kg of torque and four-wheel drive makes it a lot of fun to zip around. It is also quite durable and can take plenty of abuse thanks to its nylon parts. It is a great option to consider if you’re upgrading from cheaper sub-$50 RC cars.

It's 2.4ghz so car syncs to the controller, so can use lots all together. Turn controller on and wait for one car to connect to one controller than turn other controller on and other car on.

Ok I'm going to get this, how do I avoid any customs duty or import costs?
