New guy here. I've recently been bitten with the r/c bug again and dug out my old Sledge from my teenage years for my son. It needs a bunch of new parts which I've been able to find most of. The part I'm struggling with is the electronics part.
My son is 9 and for now doesn't need anything real fast (easier on the truck too) but longer run times would be ideal. I'm starting from scratch basically so I need recommendations for motor, esc, radio, servo, battery, ect. I'm leaning towards a cheap, mild brushless system and 2S batterys mostly for long run time. You can dial the power back to 50% or so on those right? I've also seen some pretty cheap radio setups for $50-60, is there something else I should be looking at?
Like I said I've recently been (re)bitten by the bug and I'm also burning a ton of money on parts for Dad so trying to keep this reasonable if possible.
Or am I better off buying something new like a wheely king and calling it a day?
