Price update: JJRC Q39 Highlander RC-Buggy for $65.99
With 35 km/h through the terrain? The Q39 Highlander is made for that. The remote controlled truck comes from JJRC, who have been known to us for a long time through countless other RC cars and drones. Since we were always satisfied with the last models of the manufacturer, we expect a good portion of driving fun from the Buggy.
|Model||JJRC Q39 Highlander|
|Size||39 x 22 x 16 cm|
|Battery||7.4 V 1500 mAh LiPo|
At first sight I was skeptical. The last (outwardly almost identical) buggy I tested turned out to be a mistake. However, the 6288A was also a budget model; the Q39 is with approx. $70 almost expensive for a remote controlled car from China. But: it can always be even more expensive, and for the price there is already a lot under the hood.
The buggy weighs 1.3 kg – a proud weight spread over dimensions of 39 x 22 cm. At the highest point, the lights on the roof, it is 16 cm high. And at a top speed of 35 km/h (some shops speak of 40 km/h) you have to be a little more careful here; in a collision injuries are not excluded. So drive carefully and off the road – where this off-road buggy belongs.
GearBest shows how this can look like in this advertising video, which is a bit more elaborately produced, by allowing the Q39 to compete against other JJRC models. Who is not convinced so far, gets thereby perhaps buck on the car:
What else is worth knowing? There is a 2.4 GHz remote control in the usual design. The trigger in the handle serves as a throttle, the wheel on the right side is used for steering. The control can still be corrected with a small knob. The range is given with 80 to 100 meters depending upon salesman. This way you lose sight of the car rather than breaking the connection.
The battery is a 1500 mAh lithium battery. The driving time is a good 15 minutes or a little less, depending on how you drive. Charging takes two and a half hours. For the remote control you need three additional AA batteries, which are not included.
From JJRC there are now really countless models, besides cars the Chinese also sell flying drones and boats. The Q39 Highlander looks like fun, especially at this price, for which you won’t find a model with comparable features in this country. Would a test here perhaps be interesting? Please tell us your opinion in the comments, even if we have to admit that we’re already up for a test drive ourselves. 🙂To the gadget
