Editor's Notes

January 17, 2019:

Included the Demaxis Phantom for its impressive 30-mph top speed and 4-wheel independent suspension for superior handling on all terrains. Although the JLB U3 is very expensive, its helical spring damping system and shock-absorbing wheel gaskets allow for super-responsive driving on all surfaces, while its metal chassis and waterproof design can withstand virtually any outdoor environment. Also added the Distianert Rock Crawler for its 250-foot signal range. Both the BBM Protector and Vatos Off Road are equipped with attractive top-mounted LEDs. Added the Koowheel Speed Crawler, as it was one of the few options I found that comes with an HD FPV camera for capturing racing action. Added the Hosim All Terrain because of the S-truck suspension and shockproof rubber wheels. The Similky Stunt Buggy is more of an "acrobatic" choice, but I thought its futuristic design, bright green color, and low price point could make it a great choice for beginners and adults who wish to share it with their kids.
