The Carisma Scale Adventure Coyote Pup continues to impress me with every new outing I take it on. Truth be told, while most of my “outings” have been indoors, I felt it was time to get outside with this small-scale trail machine and see how it could handle a bit of outdoor terrain.
Taking on a variety of surfaces, mulch, grass, dirt, and pavement, the Coyote Pup didn’t miss a beat. There were a few hangups and two (that I counted) rollovers, but outside of those, the test drive was quite successful.
If you have the itch to check out small-scale R/C crawlers/scale trail rigs, I’d highly recommend Carisma’s MSA-1E. At just over $100 ($119.99), you’ll get a capable and compact machine that can give you plenty of indoor and outdoor fun.
