FTX Outback 2 RTR Offroad Crawler Truck

Everyone loves crawlers! Hence the name, these are not very fast at all but take it back with ultimate climbing and trailing abilities. These are often also very good looking scale realistic cars that are hypnotizing to watch climbing over the rocks with ease. Slower speed means also less breaking parts, more running time and with a high capacity LiPO-battery (sold separately) is no miracle to get over two hours of pure crawling fun!

FTX Outback 2 is the perfect choice for the first crawler and we are sure that even more experienced RC-drivers can get much out of these! Suspension geometry is engineered with patience, big tires accompanied with light polycarbonate body ensure the low center of gravity which helps to keep the car upwards. Small rocks and roots become fun little obstacles with these 4x4 wheelers. Many hobbyists also build these trucks in the miniature (dollhouse!) style with all the needed scale equipment - driver figures, shovels, 2-ton lifts and other needed essentials! When playing with crawlers the upgrade options are basically unlimited - you can install better tires, heavier wheels and led lights easily afterwards from multiple different brands!

  • 1/10 sized four wheel driven RC-offroad truck. Fully assembled. Battery and controller included.
  • Maximum speed: Fast walking speed, approx 15km/h
  • Recommended for a child as first vehicle
