More and more people are choosing to rent rather than own, downsize and/or take part in tiny house living. As the popular cultural-wide trend “Less is more” continues to rise in both the young and old, it only makes sense that the need for scaled-down appliances and gadgets is on the rise. You might be wondering how any of this relates to RC cars/trucks.
Brought to you from the masterminds behind the awesome and ultra affordable diy Orlandoo Micro Crawler Kit Series and the original DAS87 nano Land Rover. DasMikro has added several new models to their DAS87 Series. This unboxing doesn’t do this kit justice. Aside from the body and tires, pretty much the entire kit is made of metal. Once built, It’s smaller than Bic lighter!
The micro and nano rc market is growing rapidly. While big RC’s(1:12, 1:10, etc) are a blast to drive, they typically require a large outdoor area to be enjoyable and if you’re like me, warm weather too. Unfortunately for me, I live in an area that has harsh winters. Winter here can last upwards of six months, sometimes more. I spend a lot of time indoor during those frigid, snowy months. Micro and nano crawlers allow you to crawl anywhere, anytime, any season, indoors or outdoors. It takes no time and very little space to create a mini crawling course in your home or apartment. In fact, the DAS87 and Orlandoo’s are so small that a desk can instantly be transformed into a crawling course. This winter, I plan on creating a couple of diorama/terrarium crawling courses. One of them will be portable while the other will be a more fixed set up in my basement.

Note: I still need to source a battery and the wires for the electronics as well as brush up on my soldering skills. This is going to be a winter project, so I’m not 100% sure when I’ll get started on it.
