RC Sherman Tank

Now this tank is about 4 times the price of the tank above (Best Price Here), but it has it’s reasons. It boasts top quality in every aspect you need for a tank. So regardless of its price, it’s so popular and highly reviewed and talked about by it’s customers and you’ll see why. This full 1/16th replica of the US M4A3 RC Sherman tank boasts features such as realistic sounds, smoke, and the moving turret that is standard among all the RC tanks that shoot airsoft rounds.

The only bad thing I can say about it is that this product (seriously, it’s not even a bad thing, but only ‘downside’) is that it still uses AA batteries instead of the battery pack featured in most high-end hobby RC tanks (but then again, it’s price isn’t in the range of those expensive tanks anyway). Overall it’s an awesome product for a semi affordable price.

If you don’t like the idea of batteries and prefer a battery pack, you can upgrade to a higher-end RC tank, such as the Taigen 1/16 RC tank, that comes with a rechargeable battery pack, see below! Only 1 Left In Stock Here

German RC Tiger Tank

German-Tiger-TankThis is the cadillac of remote-controlled tanks! With an astonishing level of detail, this full 1/16 tank replica (Best Price Here) crushes its competitors with features that you wouldn’t think possible from a hobby engine tank! With a full 360-degree turret, realistic smoke effects, simulated kickback from airsoft rounds, and even metal LED headlights, you certainly wouldn’t do this remote control tank justice by calling it a toy!

Best of all, this one comes with a rechargeable battery pack (remember the AA battery issue I was talking about above? This is no longer a problem here), so you won’t need to worry about stocking up on AA batteries – that’s a bonus for me as batteries are a pet hate of mine. If you’re fully committed to participating in the quickly growing RC tank community, you can’t do any better than this, you’ll have everyone jealous over your new found RC hobby. 5 Left In Stock Here

With a free and easy-to-use app, you will be controlling your new favorite toy from any Android or Apple mobile device.

At an original price tag of $170, NOW APPROX. $50 (Best Price Here), this is one of the better bargains going on in the family of remote-controlled tanks. However, the price reduction may be due to its mostly luke-warm reviews. This is a great buy if you’re mostly looking for an RC tank for more kids and teens, if you are an adult, go for any of the above or below for a serious RC hobby.

If you’re looking for a bit more performance, you will want to look at the slightly beefier RC battle tanks like the German RC Tiger Tank or the RC Sherman Tank. But, this RC tank still performs, and you really can’t go wrong with a $50 price tag, like I mentioned, for kids and teens, it’s A+. 7 Left In Stock Here

While it may not be quite the quality of the German RC Tiger Tank, it does come with a slightly lower price tag (Best Price Here).
