Affordable WLtoys FAST RC Car REVIEW and Drive – RCLifeOn

This is the WLtoys No. 12428 RC car with 4WD. It’s a 1/12 scale off road car, and is completely ready-to-run! Here it is:;utm_medium=Saradu&lkid=10122398

The above link is an affiliate link, meaning by purchasing the product I will receive a small commission by the company. This makes me able to produce videos.

In the specifications the car is clearly marked waterproof. However, mine was not! To be honest, it’s barely water resistant. In the video I gave you quick look at the receiver and electric speed controller. That unit was highly vulnerable to water, as I could see exposed electrical components. Make sure you don’t fully submerge the car because it will stop working. However, I found an easy solution. Put the damaged unit in a bag of rice, wait 24 hours, and you will see it working again.

The car operates on 2.4GHz, and this is great because it makes sure we never lose connection with the car. According to the website the range is over 100m, so as long as you don’t equip the vehicle with FPV I think you will be fine.

The top speed is almost 50km/h (31mph), as stated on the box. I should also mention that even at full throttle it feels very locked in.

It’s a 1:12 scale, and here’s the exact dimensions: length = 410mm, width = 230mm and height = 175mm

I’m so happy they decided to make this car 4 wheel drive, because it allows you to climb steep rock walls. The traction while climbing is incredible!

The charging time is roughly 3 hours, and this might seem like a long time, but the car makes up for it with a long drive time. When driving on asphalt at constant speed you could reach run times up to 20 minutes! That’s really good for a car this size.

Durability is great too! I did have some severe crashes (full speed flips) and it still runs beautifully. After a week of driving nothing has broken.

Stuff included in the box:
-RC car

-1/12 scale
-Waterproof (it is not waterproof based on my tests)
-Brushed motor
-100-150m control range
-1.5 kilograms
-Charging time: 3 hours
-Drive time: up to 20 minutes
-Almost 50km/h speed

Matthew Durant says:

Hello, is there a way to switch the channel car operates on? I bought two, 1 for me and 1 for GF but they both use same channel? Can’t drive togeather in same area. Instructions don’t indicate any way to switch channels. There is a ‘mode’ button on controller but doesn’t seem to do anything at all. If anyone can help it will be appreciated. Not only am U stuck with the 2 cars but I spent an additional $200.00 bucks for extra, high-end Venom batteries. I’m not an RC car guy and don’t have the capacity to do any complicated modifications. Bought these so me and my disabled GF would have something to do togeather outside in the nice weather. She loves her car and I’d like to be able to drive around the park in our neighborhood togeather with her.
