The Helion Animus 18SC is the next generation of 1/18th scale performance with an unprecedented set of features and value. This project came to life as a cooperative effort between some of the greatest minds in the RC industry and you, our customers. The premise behind the project set to offer you something different, something revolutionary…value AND performance. Helion R/C design engineers optimized the Animus platform for the latest generation of bashers and enthusiasts. The use of gear differentials and a robust shaft based, ball bearing supported, gear drivetrain reduces maintenance requirements, improves efficiency and performance without compromising value. With the advent and inclusion of crystal-less 2.4 GHz radio technology in the Animus, R/C bashers and enthusiasts can now enjoy using their cars alongside one another instead of worrying about changing or having to buy extra crystals. With a 4,200rpm brushed motor and high performance 1,100 mAh NiMH battery included, the Animus is equipped to not disappoint with speeds topping 20mph! Enjoying the Helion RC product line is also now easier than ever as it and you are fully supported and backed by HobbyTown USA®!

Chris and I really had a great time reviewing this truck and think it is well worth the money. We were very impressed with the 17 mph speed and the 15 minute run time on the battery. The four wheel drive with independent suspension topped off the truck for some really fine running. Chris and I gave the Animus a thumbs up and would recommend it to anyone wanting to get their first RC truck or just another addition to your RC truck line.
