US-M4A3-Sherman-RC-Tank-3

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!

US-M4A3-Sherman-RC-Tank-4 US-M4A3-Sherman-RC-Tank-2What We Like About It – It’s an excellent RC tank that boasts heaps of awesome features such as shooting up to 25 meters and all smoke and sounds like what a real tank would make which is pretty amazing. You can choose to do manual self guided fun or choose between six auto-programmed function. This radio controlled tank is also frequency free which means you can change to any frequency you like.

· 5 · German Tiger I Battle Tank

At an original price tag of $170, NOW APPROX. $50 (See Below for Best Price), 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, don’t get me wrong, it’s a great tank but you get what you pay for when it comes to electronics and gadgets. This is a great buy if you’re mostly looking for an RC tank for more kids and teens or if you want a cool hobby that won’t set you back much.

124-German-Tiger-Tank-1

If you are looking for serious adventure time or 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+.

Russian-RC-Tank-2

At 160 degrees, the turret is a little bit more limited than some of the other tanks that shoot airsoft rounds, but its price tag more than makes up for that. I definitely would give this one a look if you want a great tank at a good price with excellent functionality.

Been playin' with remote control devices and gadgets since about 6 years old with the first ever RC car I got for Christmas. Good or bad, I ain't sure but it's a childhood hobby/addiction that I can't seem to grow out of.
