Tamiya 70233 Twist Crawler (2-Channel Remote Control) official product video

Tamiya’s Educational Construction Series has a simple mission – to introduce the joy of construction and educate modelers young and old alike. This kit creates a Twist Crawler that uses a 2-channel remote control to maneuver the vehicle in different directions.

• Offers an informative construction process.
• Independent articulated tracks are connected via a shaft, and have the range of motion to allow them to traverse a whole range of obstacles.

• Comes with a double gearbox to provide motion.
