Question Seeking help on buying a R/C 4x4 truck

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello all.

I am here seeking help with buying a r/c 4x4 truck for my 11 yr old son. We are hoping to get a kit of some sort that he can put together (with help if needed), and use outside. I am hoping to get some sort of a 4x4 truck that can rock climb and also be waterproof. We would need everything to start with.

Since this is a new hobby for him I am seeking a good basic and inexpensive truck to start. Would anyone have any suggestions as to what to get and where? I am grateful for any advice.

Hpi crawler king. Get the waterproof 2.4 version. My son has been beating the older generation of this for 3 years, broken literally nothing. Jeep body has been replaced. Great first truck.

Re: Seeking help on buying a R/C 4x4 truck

Budget is the most important piece of information we need. If you want to build then there are lots of choices. Axial or Tamiya would be my suggestions for a kit but if you don't have enough budget you may have to go for something cheaper.
Helicopters: Walkera(10?), Esky(3), Blade(5), Align(7), Miniature Aircraft(2), Hirobo(2), Mikado(2), Century(3), Thunder Tiger(4), Gaui (5).
Trucks/Cars: Tamiya(8 ), Traxxas(6), HPI(1), Losi(2), Ofna(2), Thunder Tiger(2), Hot Bodies(1), Axial (1).
Boats: 4
Snowcat: 1 Kyosho Blizzard (electric)
Snowmobiles: 2 x Polaris (toy grade), art attack electric
