For the enthusiast looking to open the box and take to the trails, this model is a solid mini RTR option.

The Tetra X1 features a chassis design that mimics larger models, delivering the same functionality that is expected of these bigger vehicles.

Panda Hobby Tetra X1 1/18 RTR Scale Mini Crawler w/2.4GHz Radio (Blue)
This is a top quality crawler in a mini scale. Painted lexan body with handles, wipers, mirrors, etc. A spare tire that really is a spare you could use if needed. Lights work with a headlight and light bar that you turn on and off from the remote, brake lights that go on when you brake, and reverse lights that go on when you reverse. But it does more than just look good. Nice soft tires with weights inside keep the car planted on steep climbs. The metal, oil filled shocks help it over rough terrain and obstacles. The motor is a good choice for crawling, perhaps a tad fast but adequate overall. This thing turns heads of people who put many more times that much money into their 10th scale rigs.

Panda Hobby Tetra X1 1/18 RTR Scale Mini Crawler w/2.4GHz Radio (Blue)
I purchased this RTR for my daughter. She's been wanting to get into the hobby of RC rock crawling and I figured this would be perfect for her. The construction of these RTRs are great. They have LEDs which add a cool little factor to it. The charger for the battery is as easy as finding a USB outlet. The problem is that after 2 weeks of lightly running it, through the grass, down the sidewalks, etc., the motor stopped working. At first I thought it wasn't the motor but after contacting AMainHobby via Facebook messenger, it was concluded that it was the motor. My daughter was pretty bummed about the whole thing. AMainHobby though took the steps in ordering me a new motor, problem is, that won't be available until November. For her first RTR, for it to already be broken, it kind of sucks. My son's RTR also broke a driveshaft. The plastic driveshaft actually twisted and snapped off from just driving down the sidewalk. How that happened, I have no clue. Hopefully, I can get that replaced from Panda Hobby directly. Minus the blown motor and the broken rear driveshaft, these little RTRs from Panda Hobby are cool and hopefully the aftermarket world will catch up and have some decent upgrades for the weak points of these vehicles. They are worth the buy but it's almost like you need to be extra careful with them. Either way, if you're looking for a fun little crawler, these would fill that void.

Panda Hobby Tetra X1 1/18 RTR Scale Mini Crawler w/2.4GHz Radio (Blue)
Lots of extras for $. Not a true crawler in stock form, but for kids in my family it's more exciting because it's faster than other small scale "crawlers" an can take rough terrain with ease.
Have 2 of these pandas. So far very reliable. negatives we found were no oil in shocks in both out of box. Put low weight shock oil changes a lot. Esc OK for fast trails, nosy, not for low speed crawling. Best easy mods are 60mm tires glued on stock 1" wheels, a cheap mod. We did bead locwheels & tire on both our pandas. Also for smoother running & wear, get bearing kits.We found stock bushing wear fairly early. We do run em hard. If your into fiddling, their are fairly cheap mods to do.
