Can't post this as a deal, but if you're looking for a large cheap starter quad, then the syma x8c is available here for £58 (I have one, love it)

ebay.co.uk/itm…368

Brushed motors, and no fancy GPS, but has excellent range for a toy quad (I've had mine out over 300m before I couldn't see it, some have done 400+), 10m flight time, cheap batteries, water proof (mines landed in a lake, been stuck in a tree for a fortnight in wind and rain), motors are plugged, no fiddly soldering like my hubsan x4, will take a gopro or mobius and looks great in black

Carnt go wrong with tamiya, the midnight pumpkin and lunchbox are my favs
My advice is though if you think itll get used alot and will get alot of punishment then spend abit more. I like hpi as you get a 2 year warranty.
£150 will get you a hpi jumpshot that im sure will take alot of punishment as its built more solidly than tamiya models.
If i had the money right now id buy one
Hope this helps

Sorry to jump in on this but have the same age group of kids and currently looking at the Tamiya kits (the 80s re release stuff such as Hornet or Frog). Same pricing as those suggested I think but never seem to be on a good deal away from rrp. Interested if Blue138 has experience of the 2 brands as to value for money (Tamiya or Traxx).

Wow. Thanks for the replies.
The spend goes up a fair bit of course.
Is this deal worth the money, or worth added that more on top?

It's a shame the battery only offers 7 minutes of flying time


Wouldn't be so bad if it didn't take 3 hours to charge, I reckon a better charger will be on a future purchase list

The youtube vid that showed nearly 400m of range is this one.

Also brushed motors so may not last more than 10 hours or so if you believe some peoples stats. The X5C for £35 is a good deal, this much money for a budget quad isn't great. Also I'd greatly doubt 400m, the X5C claimed 100m and most people struggled with that.I've got 2x Cheerson CX-10SkyKing X39Syma X5CCustom build F450 quad.



​What would be your recommendation to start with Quadcopters? You seem to have a good range of them. Cheers

How does it compare to the DJI Phantom 2?



​apart from the fact this is a good 200-300 quid cheaper?

Probably shooting is a more likely option



After much thought I have come to the same conclusion and think you should ignore my previous comment unless she has shoot you already in which case its too late apologise.

You sound like a kind girlfriend, Trying to get an Xbox one out of mine … You sound like a kind girlfriend, Trying to get an Xbox one out of mine at the moment and even with the price cut, I am having no joy, so I ma guessing even though this is cheaper she would still dismiss it.



Be a man and say look here little women I'm getting a xbox one so obviously I'll buy you a new gadget for the kitchen which is where you belong. In shock she may either be oh sure that sounds like a plan OR shoot you.

Ha! Good ! I've made that mistake with Xbox 360 and never again

I had the EK4 s2 with all the upgrades.
Holy $h1t that was a monster. largest engine capacity ever built (at the time)

Losi Speed-T Brushless RTR Stadium Truck £119 @ Modelsport
You are still going to need a Battery pack and charger to get it running, But a Losi car with Spectrum 2.4Ghz radio and brushless system for 119 quid delivered is a total bargain.

jeepers if your read carefully getting that speed would need a lipo



"And"

Lipo's are cheaper than Ni-cads these days, If you don't mind a few week wait, You can go to HobbyKing and get 2 5000mAh 3 cells to run this for about 30 quid delivered, And there good Lipo's.

jeepers if your read carefully getting that speed would need a lipo

* Will Require Lipo Cells And Alternative Gearing To Achieve Such Speeds

Over 65mph with a 3 cell lithium battery apparently. I have a mini-t and tempted by this. Great price, but needs plenty of space and probably replacement parts.
Heat for deal.

My word, that's a cracking price.

I know where you are coming from! I remember buying my Tamiya Falcon and loving building it till late in to the night. I still have that in a box but needs lots of parts to get it going again. I think the Grasshopper has just been re-released. Or one of the mid 80s buggies has. Maybe it was the Hornet? But 2.4 and brushless with lipos is the way to go.

If the radio doesn't have a failsafe fit one. It is only £10 or so and stops the buggy going off in to the distance to hit someone or run on to a road if the radio fails.

This look ace,,im 34 and would love this.

Back in the day I used to tear the street up with a grasshopper 2,,I think if memory serves me correct it had an rs540s motor WOOOOW :D... 3 step forward and reverse....woooosh!!

Ive still got the car and my favoured type of radio gear,(the old hand held with the little sticks..lol cant remember the name) I could never used these triger style controllers which always put me of in my later life of getting a big kids toy!

My old grasshopper,is missing a few parts now,,the shell,and bottom battery cover, a battery and charger.The remote is complete with a couple of extra cristals X) X) the ariel is like 3 foot long!!!

I got it from beatties model shop in manchester..and the car is still in the beaties holdall that came with the car.

Sorry guys this post has made me reminisce of my childhood days..heat added just for that

This model I think is a better comparison to the traxxas deal: jespares.com/ele…509

This is waterproofed but Babylons link is to an older model but with brushless motor.

Sounds good

according to modelsport the latest hpi flux is also waterproof, might need to check the one from JEspares is also the latest model...

modelsport.co.uk/hpi…513

I guess it depends what you want, as my son is only 7, the Traxxas was a better choice as has the training mode.

How noisy are Nitro cars? Can you fit a silencer?

We've got a massive garden, but th neighbours will have a fit if I buy a Nitro and it sounds 10x louder than a Petrol mower !!!

Im just looking at this at the moment but its silly expensive.

Have a Savage 25 that I recently dug out to put back together again but after a few weeks work it rolled over last night and the enginer smashed in half.

Now to decide if I should pop in a new engine or just buy a new Savage x 4.6 before I find anything else wrong with it. Started looing at the Baja but well over 100 quid just for the shell and a couple of hundred for a single shock arm scares the hell outta me considering how much the Savage has cost me already....

Just picked up a Venom gpv-1 bike brand new from eBay for £99, so will have a play around with that and look for a HPI Nitro car as well.

Damn this site for making me buy things I dont need, but always wanted to mess about with :whistling:

The HPI kits are excellent quality. Just fuel it up and get it started. It will want running a bit rich for a few runs then lean it out. No building required which is great unless you enjoy that in which case there are lots of kit options out there.

Never looked at an RC bike as they are really only good on proper race tracks, as soon as it falls over you will need to go pick it up. Cars can be a pain too though if they roll on to their roof!
