Howdy friends and welcome back!

When you’re first getting into the world of hobby grade RC cars, you will probably want to get your feet wet with something that is affordable.

There are a lot of RC cars available in the under $200 range and we have tried many of them.

What we have discovered is that there can be a huge difference in quality and user experience. While this can be said in just about every price range, it can be especially evident in the under 200 range.

In this article, we will talk a little about our top pick in the under $200 range and why we think so.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at why we think the Redcat Racing Piranha XTR10 is just what you’re looking for.

Best RC Under 200 – Affordable Fun!

When we are looking for RC cars in the under $200 price range, there are some things we expect.

Just because we aren’t looking to drop $1,000 on a new RC, does not mean that we don’t expect a quality product!

This is our hard earned money and we expect a certain level of quality and fun…And you should too.

Here are a few things we consider before making a recommendation for you:

  • Durability
  • Value For The Price
  • Fun
  • Professional 2.4 GHz Controller
  • 600′ Range

The durability of the vehicle is important. You are upgrading from a toy grade RC to a hobby grade RC.

You should expect that it is going to be capable of doing things the toy grade RC can’t and you should expect it to last longer.

The second you pull the trigger on the Piranha, you are going to know that you have officially entered the world of hobby grade RC’s.

For about $140, the user experience is top notch.

We have taken the Piranha out and put it through more mud, snow & water than you probably ever will and have made zero repairs to the vehicle.

When we test new vehicles, we are purposely put them through “more than normal” abuse. We do this to prove to ourselves that a recommendation is warranted.

We think the Piranha XTR10 warrants this recommendation because it presents tremendous value for the money.

  • Waterproof Electronics

  • 2 in1 ESC
