It seems everywhere you look, you’ll find a radio-controlled vehicle manufacturer. A brand that I’m not very familiar with (yet) is Team Magic. This Taiwan-based company has an impressive lineup of R/C vehicles that range from on-road touring cars to off-road monster trucks and bashers. Their newest creation is the E5, a ready-to-run (RTR), 1/10-scale, 4-wheel drive monster truck (#510001). Packed with features, this is a mean-looking machine that looks like it can provide hours of fun.
By now, most RTR vehicles include waterproof components, 2.4GHz radio systems, and electronic speed controls (ESC) capable of handling LiPo batteries (2S to 3S). The E5 Monster Truck is no different. In addition to those standard features, this truck includes a 550 Brushless 4400KV motor and shaft-driven 4-wheel drive. Oil-filled shocks are also included, allowing you to tune your handling performance to better-suit your terrain. As an added visual bonus, LED headlights are included to let you keep the fun rolling long after the sun goes down.
