Orlandoo OH35P01 4WD 1/35 Crawler Kit is a fantastic scale plastic kit that also happens to be a fully functional radio control pick-up truck that will handle all sorts of scale terrain. This was one of those products that as soon as we saw it we knew we had to place an order, mainly because everyone in the office wanted one. Everytyhing in this kit says attention to detail, from the highly detailed body, to the super soft scale pattern tyres, to the scale differential and chrome mag wheels, right down to the the windscreen wipers that sit neatly on the windscreen.
But it doesn't stop there; with the addition of a micro-server, the specially made micro esc, the choice of 80 or 150 RPM motors and a 2-3 channel receiver this beautifully detailed scale model becomes a very capable scale crawler that can be used on all sorts of surfaces, indoor or outdoor, for a truely fantastic 1/35 scale crawler. There's even a neat LED light kit that comes with the ESC to turn it into a night-time scale crawler (you will need a 3rd channel for turning the lights on and off).
This is an old school model so there are a few holes to drill and some parts may need to be slightly sanded or trimmed to get a perfect finsh or to set it up the way you want, but that is part of the joy of this truck. It isn't a brainless click together exercise that anyone could do in an hour, it's a project model where the build is just as important a part of the experience as the finished product.
So if you are into scale crawling, model building or making cool miniature scenes this truck will make your day and all for the price you would expect to pay for a good quality static model.

It is really a nice truck and the build quality is good.
To assemble the parts you sometimes have to use a magnifying glass, bcause the parts are so tiny. But it is worth the effort.

The things are so tiny and small so you have to use a magnifying glass.

Awesome little truck, The attention to detail is very amazing for a rc truck this size. It offers solid axles on 4 link suspension that's very simular to some current 1/10 crawlers.
I was amazed building mine and even today I still find it impressive, its a clever design.
I recommend this product to builders or scalers alike. and definitely do not recommend it for racers or small children. its more for people that enjoy building and painting static models that want a model that really works or people that like there micro rc cars and are looking for somthing slow to put around with.
Notes: HK-5320S Ultra-Micro Digital Servo does work with the stock servo mount and the Orlandoo 2 in 1 ESC (note, does have the wrong smaller plug, but still plugs in)Not sure why my first review didn't work so I'm trying again.
This is a really tough build but very satisfying when it's done.
Take the time to clean up each part before you install it as even a tiny bur will make it hard to assemble.
Have a 6mm drill bit handy for cleaning up bearing housings.
You'll need a tiny battery and servo. Ultra Micro server and 350mAh battery - I bought a 500mAh but it's too big and doesn't quite fit.
It's a very nice model, more like an airfix model than an RC car. Fun to drive - the scale is a novelty but don't expect it to do too much given it's size. It's a great crawler when you give it appropriately sized obstacles.This truck was a lot of fun to build, and it was a pain in the butt at the same time. It has a ton of flex to crawl over stuff. Ifor you've been thinking of getting it, do it! I will be buying a second one soon.My Kit arrived with some missing parts and others parts in double quantity.
30 days ago i sent an RMA request but i'm sill wait for an anwer...
i hope someone from HKing will solve my problem.Bad quality plastics, driveshaft uni joints fall out, HK recommend wrong servo. Don't bother with it.Cool little model, but you better have patience. The screws are crazy small and will test your patience. If you can handle that it is actually fun to assemble. Fit and finish is fairly good for such a tiny truck. Wish there was a larger set of tires available for crawling but that would throw out the scale and this is very much a scaler. The shocks bind up badly, i suggest that you smooth the large end of the shock shaft with fine sandpaper before assembly so that they dont catch inside the plastic shock tubes. Also as a comenter said the servo that hobbyking recommends is not correct and does not fit. Use HK-5320. I also found that the battery listed on the combine tab, at 180mAh gets pretty hot, i would find one around 500mAh as they say in the listing and not the combine tab. Using the wheel weight kit gives you pretty much solid front tires as the weight is only slightly smaller than the tire itself and leaves no room for foam even. You end up with about 1mm of deflection in the tire and thats it. I chose to leave them out so the tire could flex and conform.Achtung! Turnigy TGY-1550A Micro Analog Servo 5.5g / .10sec / 0.9kg passt nicht!! Er ist viel zu gross!
Die richtigen masse sind 17mm X 6.2mmI have this kit, came yesterday as i'd seen it a few weeks back, so waiting for it to be in stock and ordered it plus the 150rpm gearbox and esc/light unit. It's a really good kit, i've built loads of car kits in the past but have to say this one is let down badly by the odd part. for example the tie-rod ends (plastic with holes in) are very poor, you push them on the ball joints and they are not tight enough to stay on and keep coming off. almost impossible to fix it really,( i will keep trying) apart from this it is a good kit which i do hope to finish, parts are so very small, used the box as a tray to keep your bits in, if you drop one of the micro screws you'll never find it again, comes with good mini tool kit also.
