R/C Buyer’s Guide: LaTrax

LaTrax is a brand name with a rich history in the world of R/C. Introduced by Jim Jenkins, the father of Traxxas owner Mike Jenkins, in the mid-1970’s, the LaTrax name has made a comeback after years of dormancy.

After it was reintroduced in 2013, LaTrax has focused on bringing lower-cost, smaller-scale radio-controlled models to the marketplace. From cars, trucks, and quadcopters, there’s a surprising array of durable, budget-friendly radio-controlled machines in this lineup.
