Hobbymate D6 Duo Pro Hobbyist RC Charger Review

I recently got this Hobbymade D6 Duo Pro rc/lipo charger in for testing.  It was an item I asked for specifically, and specifically because I wanted to see something in use that I hadn’t seen anyone use: external discharge.  Hobbymate was kind enough to send this one and I’ve had it for way too long, but finally got my demonstration done.

Redcat Gen8 International Scout II 1/10 Scale Remote Control Crawler

I love playing with RC cars.  I’m not “good at it” (since there are competitions, there is a “good at it”), but I thoroughly enjoy it.  Other members of my family do, too.  After my review of the VKAR [super fast] car, I wanted something slower that I could more readily hand off to others, for crawling, and the like.

And it was another by the same brand that broke on me. JJRC. So I was skeptical. This is the JJRC Speed Runner Q46. Spoiler: it’s orders of magnitude better than the Q39!!!

WPL C14 1:16 2.4G 2CH 4WD Mini Off-road RC Semi-truck

I’ve been off and on excited about RC cars lately.  Gearbest sent one that was awesome (until it wasn’t) and they’ve sent a few more that I’ve struggled to get finished reviewing.  This is the next installment, a 1:16 truck!

JJRC Q39 Highlander 1:12 RC Desert Truck Review

I’d been quite interested in testing an RC Car, both because it seemed new and interesting, and I just wanted to play with one.  GearBest sent me this JJRC Q39 Dune Buggy to test, and I’ve been playing with it for quite a while now.  Here’s my review!  My first RC review; I’m open to improvement suggestions!
