This is my second ascender and it’s definitely worth the money, this Ford body makes it look outstanding and it crawls great, first time ever binding a radio and receiver but it’s super easy! YouTube helps a lot LOL. Only downfall is the battery tray for small shorty lipos but amain sells a bpc battery tray that’s $20 bucks for full sized batteries sndnyour good to go!!
