The Helion Animus 18TR is the next generation of 1/18th scale performance with an unprecedented set of features and value. This project came to life as a cooperative effort between some of the greatest minds in the RC industry and you, our customers. The premise behind the project set to offer you something different, something revolutionary…value AND performance. Helion R/C design engineers optimized the Animus platform for the latest generation of bashers and enthusiasts. The use of gear differentials and a robust shaft based, ball bearing supported, gear drivetrain reduces maintenance requirements, improves efficiency and performance without compromising value. With the advent and inclusion of crystal-less 2.4 GHz radio technology in the Animus, R/C bashers and enthusiasts can now enjoy using their cars alongside one another instead of worrying about changing or having to buy extra crystals. With a 370 size brushed motor, all weather ESC and high performance 1,100 mAh NiMH battery included, the Animus is equipped to not disappoint with speeds topping 20mph! Enjoying the Helion RC product line is also now easier than ever as it and you are fully supported and backed by HobbyTown USA®! With over 150 locations nationwide you’ll never be out of touch with the latest innovations headed your way from Helion RC!
The proportional all weather Electronic Speed Controller (ESC) provides great performance in forward and reverse. Paired with a 370 sized brushed motor, this combo delivers outstanding performance, reaching speeds over 20 mph!
For all-terrain domination, one thing you gotta have is stability! Our low center of gravity (LCG) Chassis keeps the weight low to help you stay on your wheels.
A 1100mAh 6-Cell NiMH rechargeable battery pack delivers the power necessary to reach speeds in excess of 20mph while the included AC charger improves your driving-to-waiting ratio.
Utilizing one of the most competitive 2.4GHz radios in its class, we bring specs to your hand that are typically found in high end radios! Integrated features like fully proportional controls and steering dual rate (D/R) remain easy for users of all experience levels.
The "ERS" (ESC/Receiver/Servo) unit encompasses all of the Animus' electronics into one weather resistant space saving package to alleviate the wiring mess associated with other minis. 6.5mm mini “big bore”oil filled, bladder top shocks with adjustable ride height and rebuild-able seal cartridges. Aggressive tread design with real rubber compound for great traction on all surfaces which outlasts that of other minis’ plastic-rubber compounds. Rotating on ball bearings, the high performance Nylon composite used throughout the differentials make the Animus’ drivetrain one of the strongest and most reliable in its class.
