Have you ever wondered what it takes to build an extremely tiny car that you can drive on your desk… and have so much fun doing it! This tutorial is for you!
I’ve been building models and realistic scenery for a while and I’ve always wanted to shrink down and walk around my creations… but since that is not an option just yet the next best thing is to be able to do it in a third person view by driving a tiny HO scale car through my scenes, and with this tutorial you too will be able to go on a tiny road trip 😃
I bought this model about 8 months ago from tiny4x4, unfortunately it’s not currently in stock however I have been told they will be receiving a shipment in the not too distant future. In the mean time the Das87 kit can be found on eBay, Amazon and a few other retailers but finding the ESC and nano receiver can be a bit more challenging.
