    Starter Package for RC

    Perfect set up for starting the RC car hobby. Easy to set up and use. The battery was a good capacity (3000mAh). Slow charger is fine for our purposes for a daily session as we are getting a good 30mins and more on a hornet. We run a bit stop/start and running them with bearings too. Any more and I think the repair burden would be too much! Great service and delivery as always even in lockdown.

    Great 5 stars people

    Item as described, everything in the box works very well and as intended. only issue is no way to tell if the battery charged as no LED on charger so charging must be timed. Phil was tight and bought the starter package, don't be like Phil and spend the extra £10! Most defiantly worth the reduced charging Time and added charger accessories. Goods arrived in Cornwall before the email to tell me it had been sent.( ordered New Year's Eve after a beer, Monday bank holiday , Tuesday bank holiday) arrived Monday! Less than 48 hours.! Great work guys will be using you for all my needs in the future, thank you

    Great but with one little niggle

    This is a great set, comes in a really smart plastic case with all the bits and pieces you need (including batteries for the transmitter!). The only very minor niggle is that you can easily accidentally knock the micro adjuster on the forward/reverse control while using it. However this is easily solved with a bit of sticky tape :). Other than that it's a fantastic package and well worth the money. So far I've bought 3!

    Tamiya Hornet

    Ordered from Sale. Great price. Arrived promptly by courier all present and correct. Kit is great quality and as a first timer (couldn't afford it 20 years ago!) I'm mid way through the build and its easy enough to follow and very satisfying. I'm going to a General Lee version Hornet, look out for it on YouTube when I'm done! Would definitely shop here again.

    Everything i needed and a bit more!

    Building my first RC model since being a youth I needed a kit to get my M05 mini running. This had everything needed and i was left with an extra servo for my next build or if this one goes pop. Controller is so simple my 2 year old can use it and gives good range. Would recommend buying some good quality rechargeables to keep you going but other than that you've got it all here.

    Receiver does not fit Tamiya speed controller

    Bought this with the Tamiya Holiday Buggy. It is a good value package but there is a problem. The connector on the Tamiya speed controller supplied with the buggy does not fit into the socket on the Acoms receiver, it is too wide! The remedy is to carefully file it down to make it fit. The instructions supplied are pretty useless too as the receiver pictured does not bear much resemblance to the one supplied. (It does say "new receiver included" on the front of the box, I wonder if this is a clue.) Wonderland Models should slip a note into the box with some clearer instructions on how to set up the RC system or I imagine they may get some returns from people new to RC. A shame because once up and running it is a great value package.
