This Scout II can be a lot of fun when going on walks that are even over rough terrain.
Able to craw over most things that are no higher then the bottom of the bumpers.
Using a LiPo 2S 6200mAh battery that last a very long time.
The Radio receiver looks to be the same as a Flysky.
The Redcat basic radio functions are very limited, so I am thinking of converting
one of my 9x Radio's to give me a lot more functions and control.
