    Got one and just start to work on it. As an rc pilot addicted i find this kit super easy to built and is a total blast. Waiting on few electronics , upgraded parts and the MFC box.. first truck ever and not the last one for sure ...
    another positive side of it will be the wife not yelling to you because planes take to much room .
    winner in my book .

            This is definitely a great winter project, specially if you are in the north west during rainy season...
            i didn’t aspect to have so much fun.
            If may i , in case you’ll do it as the first time for me , be extremely organized with all parts and screw more then ever . Did help it alote . Need a large surfice to work on it. So many positive reviews to say on this kit. Everything is there , everything. Nothing missing, yet gonna have lot of parts and screws left over .
            Warning: i did give up on my draco order ( rather spend money with Motion ) to order another semi .
            Mods can be costly, the MFC unit blow me away with sound and lights options.
            i keep this truck the simple possible just to understand how did works . Now i know better and i can’t wait to start another one .
            a special THANK YOU to Derek ( costumer service ) for suggesting this kit . Sir, you are a powerhouse of knowledge and thank you for helping with accuracy and kindness. 10 ⭐️‘S review .
            Thank you Motion for this extra’s !!!
            ps: that’s what happen meanwile waiting for a new jet .
