New R/C rigs always bring a smile to my face, especially if they’re updated versions of my favorite platforms. Earlier this week, Redcat announced its latest trail truck, the Gen9 Scout 800A. Luckily for me, I had an advanced preview of this machine as I was testing it out for both RC Newb and Big Squid RC.
Before this rig hit the trail, I gave it a thorough overview and unboxing, which you can find on Big Squid RC’s YouTube channel (and embedded below):
