Really neat but I have not had good luck with these kits.

I have the pickup and it leans really bad I took apart all the linkages and made sure they were correct but it didn't help. I'm not sure what's causing it. I put the battery and ESC on the other side to try to balance the weight opposite the motor. I might try to stiffen the shocks on the one side next.

If it wasn't for that I really enjoyed putting mine together even tho everything was 10 times harder with the size of those tiny screws!

Keep the pics coming I enjoy seeing these.

The F-150 pickup is Orlandoo experimental build, their second release which is the Jeep was a huge improvement true to scaler quality, build durability and improved axle articulation. Overall if you 'overweighted' the build it wouldn't crawl great on all 4 suspension so which is why i reduced the weight to bare naked electronics and wiring to keep them compact. Get the CG point as low as i can.

Yeah they can be frustrating with rice bead size screws and ball lingkages. But once you get it right its a very rewarding quality build.

*Incoming..waiting for my 5th Orlandoo. Another twin Defender!

Nice collection!

Thanks for the compliments, the build on the 'base chassis' is similar to previous models (Pajero and Jeep) but when it comes to assemble plastic titbits of the scale bodyshell detail parts it becomes more apparent that this Defender is far much harder to put together because some pieces of plastic such as side signal lights, head lights and even fuel cap are far too microscopic to assemble by finger, these parts are ultra tiny than the smallest screws on the chassis. If you're not good with your thumbs and finger the Defender (OH32A03) can be ultimately hearth wrenching even a drop of glue can ruin this parts. That's what makes the Defender build different that most Orlandoo's previous releases. I have another Defender coming in soon, looks like i have to repeat the same cycle again.

Adding those final connection to some rear SMD lights. Those tiny beads of lights are extremely microscopic to solder. Now we have beautiful rear lights.

It looks super good.
I even have a D110 on my way home and am excited about light coming on, I don't think I have the ability to do it.

Thanks guys, those SMD lights took me 3 days of frustration to get it solder. Its like trying to get those tiny bacterial stick on its spot under the microscope.

Oh btw just compile video about build and some serious crawling test drive on my custom DIY Orlandoo track. Enjoy the show.

Awesome collection.
There's no way I'd have the patience (or skills, but primarily patience). I'd probably crush the whole thing in a fit of rage along the way

Nice video and it's a nice course you've built yourself there.

*Defender review: https://www.supermotoxl.com/designs-...-micro-crawler

Tonight going to install last bits of SMD for front part of the headlight bits.
Meanwhile having sleepless night wondering where my 2nd parcel went to after my tracking number went MIA for 3 days. Suppose to start building the 5th Orlandoo today.

Thanks.... The garage is 1/10 so yes Jacks are much too big.
A set in real size could be cool.
