OK a bit ago I posted asking about getting into the hobby. I started the process thinking slash but based on terrain (mostly grass at this time) I moved to monster trucks and started researching them
Fast forward and I almost pulled the trigger on an Invictus, went in to hobby town and realized for a first time RC guy I would want (not need I guess but really want) to quickly upgrade the battery to lipo and of course need the charger to go with it. Well getting them plus the truck started to get me wondering about the purchase, not because of the money but wondering for that price should I just look at the Stampede (better part support, more versital) with a lipo and charger with it.
Invictus would run around $375 or so with good charger and 2S battery (all from hobby town probably could save if I went all over). Seems I can get a Stampede vxl 4X4 with lipo charger and 2S for around $50 more give or take?
The Invictus looks like a great truck, but for a first time RC guy with nothing at all is it the value it seems? Clearly if I had batteries and a charger its a good deal, but given that the issued ones stink that's kind of pushing the price to where I'm not sure. Any advice would be great.
