What to consider when purchasing a RC Crawler? 

Most of the crawlers use gas or batteries in order to power the vehicle. To be honest, gas-powered crawlers tend to have a lot more power when compared with the electric ones but also are a lot louder which makes them less likely to be used in a home or in your neighborhood. they come in 2WD and 4WD models which means they either provide power to 2 or all 4 wheels for the movement, obviously the choice is yours but we’ll just stress that 4WD is a great choice if you prefer to take your model off-road. If you decide to go with an electric model make sure that you bring a spare battery or taken as they tend to drain their battery quickly. It is advisable to pick a waterproof model if your budget allows for it.

Buy a RC Crawler from a reputable manufacturer so as to be backed by a long warranty and make sure you can easily find replacement parts in case you need to repair the vehicle or remote in the future. Most batteries will last you for 1 to 2 hours so keep that in mind in case you want to pick a few more batteries while purchasing your RC Crawler. They come in various shapes and sizes for you to choose from so take your time and pick the one you like the most. A larger crawler may be a better option for a beginner but don’t pick one that is too large to carry. There are RC Crawlers that are ready to use just of the box by only adding the batteries which are ideal for beginners. On the other hand, you can purchase a kit version where you have to follow the instructions in order to build the kit to actually work.

Try to pick a model with high clearance from the ground as you want the chassis to not contact the rocks while climbing. Also, check their suspension system as some models come with springs while other use pistons or shock to absorb bumps. Keep in mind that RC crawlers are not the best RC models for racing as they are aimed to climb obstacles and rocky hills if you plan to race you may need to look for a different RC vehicle. They are not built for speed rather they are built for climbing terrain so with that in mind they do an excellent job.
