What are the different types of RC trucks?

Rc Semi Trucks are really really cool large scale precise replicas of real carrying trucks.

They go slower than any other category, but there are exceptions.

 

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 Trucks

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.

Tamiya America King Hauler

Build quality

Amazing (Aluminum parts)

Scale

1/14

Controller

Not included

Needs Assembly

Yes

The King Hauler is the best high end RC Semi truck on this list, but that doesn't mean it's the best for you, as it comes with a few perks of its own.

It comes with a very high quality aluminum front and chassis, also a solid axle suspension, making it very durable and high quality built.

It has a 3 speed gearbox and tractor truck oil shocks for more realistic driving over bumpy terrain.

The sound effects are incredibly detailed since they are recorded with high sound fidelity from the real life king hauler truck and you can also adjust the volume of the sounds or customise them.

Unfortunately it doesn't come with a controller and you have to buy it separately.

But this is overall the ultimate experience when it comes to building and driving your own RC truck.

  • Great build
  • Ultra realistic details
  • Great suspension
  • Powerful motor
  • HIgh fidelity sounds
  • Not suitable for kids
  • Doesn't come with transmitter

Build quality

Good quality plastic

Scale

1/20

Controller

Yes

Needs Assembly?

No

This truck is on of the most popular buys on amazon especially because of it's value for money.

The materials it's built from are pretty solid, even though it's full plastic, and this time around it comes in a full package.

The Mercedes-Benz rc truck is also suitable for kids, as it's coming already assembled and it's easier to handle.

It does come with sound effects too, although the volume can be a bit annoying inside the house.

It comes with a detachable tractor/trailer board that has a split joint. You can load and drag other construction vehicles like excavators, forklifts, bulldozer or simply any small cars you have laying around.

 

  • Great value for money
  • removable trailer
  • comes with the full package

Tamiya Team Hahn Racing Man TGS 4WD Truck

Build quality

Good quality plastic

Scale

1/14

Controller

Yes

Needs Assembly?

Yes, Comes in a kit

This RC semi truck is funny enough made for racing, as it's recreating  the team Hahn Racing Man TGS truck that stars on the truck racing circuit in Europe.

This truck has the battery  and motor close to the ground for a lower center of gravity and better balance, as it's made for racing.

It comes with 4 wheel drive and double suspension system along with front and rear differential gears.

The weheels are metal plated and the build is made from lightweight and durable policarbonate, this truck still has 4.6 pounds in weight.

This model isn't made for carrying a trailer behind it, as it's made for speed, built on a powerful RC car chassis.

This model is a kit, but much more simple to assemble than the first one we talked about.

 

  • Very Fast compared to the others on this list
  • good build
  • high attention to details
  • low center of gravity
  • Isn't made to carry a trailer.

Tamiya Globe Liner Semi Truck

Build quality

Great quality plastic + aluminum

Scale

1/14

Controller

NO

Needs Assembly?

Yes

Just like the King Hauler, this Globe Liner RC semi truck requires a lot of detailed assembly, even on another level, as it doesn't come prepainted.

The materials and overall quality of the truck are outstanding, but it's made only for people who love building and puzzles.

Even though the building process itself isn't that complicated, it is quite meticulous and even requires painting.

The materials are great, as expected from a high end Tamiya truck.

 

  • A lot of fun building it
  • Amazing attention to details
  • great controlability
  • To complete it requires: battery, charger, speed control, servo, radio system, paint

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.
