Best RC Cars Under $100 – My top 5 rc cars in 2019

Best RC Cars under $100 in 2019

RC cars under $100 are in a special price category where you start seeing more quality parts like brushless motors and metal gears.

It took me quite a while to shift though the large amounts of RC cars on the market to come up with only a hand full of them to help you choose.

But these are the best…

I picked the top ones so that they each have at least something unique to it, so it satisfies each possible need.

What are the different types of RC Cars?

RC Rock Crawlers

These are made for the toughest of terrain, they can take big jumps, run along steep hills, logs, ice, rocks and everything an RC car could ever do.

Short Course rc Cars

These are built for serious racing, offroading can be dangerous for them and they require more maintenance.

Rc Monster trucks

These come with poweful engines and enourmous tires, can be used in many environments, but are mainly built for fun of going over things.

Truggies and Buggies

Very fast and built for grittier terrain or even asphalt.

MY TOP 5 rc cars under $100

This top list is not necesarily objective, I rated them by what I would personally buy and things like brushless motors, better build quality and how fun I think they would be.

For example, even though the Drift car would be nice to have on asphalt, I would prefer having something offroad for more versatility.

Feiyue FY03 Eagle-3 - for beginners

Build quality

Good ( mostly plastic with metal differential)

Scale

1/12

4×4

Yes

Motor

Brushed

The Feiyue Fy03 is an rc car that comes in two colors and can also be run on two different types of track very successfully.

It doesn't come with a brushless motor and although it's mostly made from plastic, it's quite resilient.

There are parts made from metal, like the drive shaft, and it also has a usable spare wheel in the back.

The ground clearance is good enough for getting over small rocks and bumpy terrain and it's still stable for road racing.

  • Aluminum shocks
  • 4 wheel drive
  • great handling
  • No actual lights
  • The differential is not entirely made of metal.

ZD RAcing 16426-2016 Drift Car

Build quality

Good

Scale

1/16

4×4

Yes

Motor

Brushless

Although this car may look like a kids toy, from the looks of the canopy, Trust me, it's not!

It comes with a powerful Brushless motor that makes it run up to 45 km/h and it's totally made for street racing.

If you only plan to play with it on the street, get this one, because it's not made for even a bit of offroad, considering it has a ground clearance of 13mm.

It does come with a solid foam front bumper which handles shocks very well, without cracking.

And this thing drifts quite nice too.

  • Aluminum shocks
  • brushless motor
  • very stable on the ground
  • 4 wheel drive
  • the canopy looks ugly in my opinion

Hosim large size 9125 - double motor

Build quality

Good (metal differential and dog bones) +encased body

Scale

1/10

4×4

Yes

Motor

2 brushed

The two brushed motors do a great job making this a fast accelerating truck, and it becomes powerful enough to handle almost any type of terrain.

What's most unique about it, and the reason I put it so high on my list is the fact that if you remove the canopy, you'll find out it has all the parts encased in a very tight body, so it's definitely splash proof and also well cooled.

The wide stance helps it stay stable on the ground and it doesn't flip almost at all.

It's a very quiet car and I like that sometimes, also it comes with 6 shocks, instead of just 4.

  • Metal dog bones and aluminum chassis
  • 2 brushed motors
  • very stable on the ground
  • 4 wheel drive
  • the battery casing can drop in crashes

XINLEHONG TOYS Q901 - BRUSHLESS MONSTER

Build quality

Metal gears, drive shafts and bearings

Scale

1/16

4×4

Yes

Motor

brushless

Xinlehong toys makes some of the best trucks and RC cars in the industry, even though it may sound fishy to you.

Actually you can find on amazon many copies of their original cars, rebranded.

This one is such a win because it comes with a lot of metal components, a powerful 2845 3200kv brushless motor and even has headlights that work!

It's a solid and stable car that does simple things well, and the transmitter feels good in hadn too.

I love how this car looks and it's especially fun to drive at night thanks to the headlights.

  • Metal gears, drive shafts and bearings
  • brushless motor
  • headlights
  • 4 wheel drive
  • could be even faster for racing

ZD TX-16 1/16 truggy

Build quality

Metal differential

Scale

1/16

4×4

Yes

Motor

brushless

Another car that looks like a cheap toy, you may ask. Why is it in the first place on my list?

That's because under the hood it's a complete monster and goes super fast thanks to the brushless motor.

I really love ZD racing as a company and this is no exception, as it's a car that can do both street racing and offroad exceptionally well for something that's under $100 in price.

It does come in two colors, if you're put off by the strong green.

It comes with 4 wheel drive and it simply works great and drives fast and fun.

  • Metal gears, drive shafts and bearings
  • brushless motor
  • Best acceleration I've seen for the price
  • 4 wheel drive
  • The body looks ugly to me

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:

how-to-make-money-with-drones

1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

types of drones

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  1.  
  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.

 

How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

I'm a big drone enthusiast, the owner of DronesGator.com and I also make weekly videos on my drone YouTube channel.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
