The Redcat Racing Everest GEN7 Sport may be my “R/C surprise” of 2017. This budget-focused, entry-level radio-controlled crawler and scaler has outperformed my expectations and has left me with a giant grin on my face whenever I take it out for a drive.
A few weeks ago, I put it up against a pile of large, loose rocks. It was an obstacle that I hadn’t driven on before, so I had no idea how it would all play out. To my delight, the Everest GEN7 Sport handled everything that I threw at it. The tires provided ample grip to climb up and over the rocks and kept the truck in place during descent.
It was a fun test and simply a fun time enjoying the outdoors and the R/C hobby.
