I’ll be the first to admit that I rarely reach for the instruction manual for a ready-to-run (RTR) R/C vehicle, however, I’m making an exception in this case. As one of three (or four?) new scale, trail rigs to hit the marketplace, the Everest GEN-7 has appealed to me both in its feature list and pricing.
The Everest GEN-7 manual provides tremendous detail around how both trim-levels of this model (GEN-7 Sport and GEN-7 PRO) are assembled. Everything, from the body mounting posts and hinged body mount system (PRO) to exploded views of the axles and drivetrain, is revealed in this document.
Redcat Racing Everest GEN-7 Highlights:
- The RCR 2CENR radio transmitter features adjustment knobs for steering and throttle trim, steering dual rate, and steering and throttle reverse.
- The GEN-7 uses 10mm wheel hexes (#180016S)
- A 15KG steering servo will be included with both trim levels.
- The ESC is capable of handing 2-3S LiPo batteries and has three levels of drag brake (0, 50%, 100%) along with a built-in BEC.
Until this vehicle lands in hobby shops and online stores, paging through the manual is one of the best ways to brush up on the Everest GEN-7’s details.
