As I await the arrival of my pre-ordered ECX KickFlip, I’m happy to see news of another micro-scale R/C buggy, the Q32 Baja from HPI. Made with fun in mind, you won’t find any unnessary parts on this machine. Riding on foam tires that should have enough grip to tackle an office hallway or lunchroom floor, this ultra-small, incredibly light vehicle has a length of 4.3″ and is 2.9″ wide.
Additional details haven’t yet been released, aside from the mention of a 2.4GHz radio and “Real Steer” which HPI states will make this tiny car “drive just like a larger RC car”. This new entry has a suggested retail price of $75.00, but I’ve seen preorder prices lower than that ($59.99 at TowerHobbies.com).
When more details become available, I’ll be sure to follow up with updates on this small-scale buggy.
