Waterproofing is the next big thing, thanks Traxxas. But this post is about HPI, specifically their new version of the Blitz RTR with all new, waterproof electronics. The waterproof components include the SC-15WP brushed ESC and SF-10W servo. There’s also a waterproof radio box to protect the newly included 2.4 GHz receiver. Beyond the electronics, other changes include the new Scorpion body with two new color schemes and the inclusion of a 7.2v Plazma battery pack (NiMH), an AC charger, and AA batteries for the transmitter, so this is a truly ready-to-run truck right out of the box.
The new Blitz RTR will have an MSRP of $435.00 when it starts hitting shelves in a couple months. This truck hasn’t hit HPI’s website yet, but check it out just for fun.
