Default 1/24 crawler park

Hi all, I've been working on a place to drive my 1/24 crawler. I live in an apartment and don't have a lot of outdoors space to build so 1/24 scale works better than 1/10 scale.

















the truck is an HSP 1:24 crawler with brushless conversion.

That course is awesome, I like the bridge. Very innovative! How do you like that HSP?

Thanks!

The HSP is pretty good, but only if you are going to mod it. The stock electronics suck. Mainly the receiver (which is built into to the esc). I have two and my mate has one. All three had problems with the controls cutting in and out and needing to be re-bound all the time. But you can buy the hsp and convert it to brushless for much less than buying a stock losi.

@ MikeChino - It is the courtyard of my ground floor apartment. Its not very big, but its better than just a balcony.

@microcrawlers - It has the 5 gram outrunner from hobbyking with a turnigy 25A esc and a receiver I had lying around. It runs on 3s lipo. Due to the significant increase in torque the driveshafts needed modifying too. It seems as though I have addressed most of the issues with it and it runs quite reliably now

Convert it to brushless...? It pretty quick then? Decent at least..? Thinking about doing a mud truck

It's not very fast. It's probably a little slower that stock on 2s and a little faster than stock on 3s. The motor is only rated for 2s but it seems to go fine on 3s. I just bought a spare one in case it blows haha.

It has ridiculous torque though. It'll break traction or break something before it stalls. So you then have to strengthen the drive shaft joints, and then when that's fixed the pinion gear ends up slipping, but some epoxy seems to have fixed that for the time being. It's pretty reliable now but you wouldn't let a non RC person play with it haha

You could just change the gearing if you wanted more speed because it has plenty of torque to spare.

And longer run time than battery charge time which is a big change from the stock battery

radcore that is the coolest 1/24 coarse I have seen, I would love to play on that thing. Do those little lanterns light it up for night crawling?

Cheers!
They sure do. They do ok, but it could still do with a little more light
