  • WPL Trucks

    I've really never been into RC cars/trucks as much as airplane/heli stuff, but I found these WPL trucks online and thought they looked cool. Read some reviews and decided to get one, which then turned into four. Since I haven't been able to get to the field to fly in the past few months, I found these to be fun while at home. We've been having a blast. Plus, I think they'll fit into the new Bancroft landing craft when those arrive. They come in kit form as well as RTR, but the RTR version does not have proportional steering. That was an easy upgrade as well as the 2 speed gearbox and larger motor. Anyway, thought I'd share.

    CM_Aero WPL trucks are a good value for the price. They're nowhere near a Kyosho or Tamiya or Arma or Axial, but if your expectations are scaled to the price point, I think they're worth looking at if you don't mind a bit of wrenching. The WPL trucks are 1/16 scale, so they scale perfectly alongside 1/16 tanks. Out of the box, make sure you're getting the versions with proportional steering, otherwise plan for a steering servo upgrade if yours has the motor-driven steering unit.

    I've had the best luck with WPL's C14 which is basically a Toyota Hilux. There are many hop-ups available for it to double the price , but so far stock is fine for my uses. Eventually the plan is to paint it up to run against the T-90.

    The B36 (Ural) is also a good runner, if you're into the bodystyle and don't mind it being slightly top-heavy, otherwise go with a B16 for more versatile customization options. The B36 would be great as a 4320-D/P-18 radar truck!

      Found a cool trailer on Thingiverse and just got done assembling it. Need to still finish adding details but turned out great. Can't wait for the tanks to be back in stock
