The Beast Lives: See Redcat Racing’s Brushless-powered Wendigo Rock Racer in Action [Video]

I didn’t think I needed a brushless R/C rock racer in my life, but after seeing Redcat Racing’s Wendigo, I’m warming up to the idea. Built for folks who love outdoor adventures, R/C crawling, and straight-up power, the Wendigo appears to be a model that checks all of those boxes.

Budget-priced at $389.99, this 1/10-scale rock machine offers quite a bit of bang for your buck. Brushless power, scale details throughout the body and chassis, and massive 2.2″ wheels, this rig has just about everything you could ask for.

If you’ve been wanting to dive deeper into the details of this model, check out the following overview and action for this new model:

The more I hear, see, and read about this rig, the more my excitement grows. Taking what appears to be the base chassis of the Redcat Racing GEN8 and modifying it for a rock racer/crawler application should offer a great experience for both new and experienced hobbyists.
