Checking out my unboxing of the volcano EPX monster truck RC vehicle this is one that I bought off amazon com for I think 139 dollars.
Pretty good entry-level truck it's even above really above that it's pretty darn quick for what we can see on the YouTube videos, anyway this is the electric brushed model ready to run 110 scale and you can see the box here,
I get it off amazon and it came pretty quick so that's always nice had a lot of good reviews and the youtube videos that we saw the vehicle was really good as well but there's one thing that it doesn't come with that, we didn't know and I'm sure many of you probably would know this but we missed it,
I'll explain what that is you need to make sure you get before you'll be a little frustrated when you open the box but anyway this is what it looks like when it comes out of the box itself and so pretty straightforward pretty nice design looks pretty slick we've already taken it for a bit of a run so you can check out our first run video after this and of course there's the controller as well well the one thing it didn't come with it didn't come with batteries we didn't realize that.
We didn't have any in the house either so we had to go and get some for the actual controller so make sure to get batteries also be sure before you run this thing to charge it we didn't charge it as long we thought that we charge long enough but we didn't so it didn't run they didn't hit that first run that we did didn't go for very long before the battery drain down so you got to charge it for eight hours eight hours after opening it out of the box and then you're ready to to rip along with this thing but it's really really fast and you can take a look at that video of the first run that I did and other than that make sure to read the instructions of course.
Make sure to read thoroughly read the instructions that came with the truck itself and follow that and you should be alright with having this last quite some time but this is a great great great vehicle lots and lots of speed here's
some specifications for those of you that are wondering about it but been completely happy with, for those of you that want to jump on this and get this truck for it for yourself for your kid for a friend family member it has been well worth the investment for us alright thanks for visit.
