The Traxxas Bandit™ redefines traditional buggy performance by creating a whole new class of Extreme Sports Buggy™. Bandit offers the highest levels of speed, action, and fun that will easily make it one of your favorites for all kinds of R/C driving excitement. The lightweight Bandit chassis is loaded with an aggressive Titan® 12-Turn modified motor and a high-current XL-5 Electronic Speed Control that deliver lightning-fast acceleration and incredible 35+mph* performance. Pull the trigger and Bandit rips massive rooster tails, soars over giant jumps, and lays down the power for pure performance and excitement at every turn. Bandit is infused with the latest tech including the patent-pending Revo®-Spec Torque-Control™ slipper clutch and Alias™ high-performance 2.2" racing tires. The advanced dual-pin rear, and ribbed front tread designs are engineered to work with our exclusive rubber compounds for superior off-road traction and directional control. The industry standard 2.2" mirror-chrome Tracer™ wheels open the door to a wide range of tire options, including the optional Traxxas Anaconda 2.2" street treads.

With Traxxas' exclusive waterproof electronics, Bandit can blast through puddles, mow through mud and shred snow. Your R/C adventures are limited only by your imagination. Jump it. Race it. Crash it. Bandit's legendary durability leaves everything else behind. Bandit is built Traxxas Tough™ to keep you off the workbench and deep in the fun zone. Plus, it's upgradeable with a full line of Traxxas factory parts and accessories for custom performance and personalization.

Precision 2.4GHz Control Radio System

With the TQ™ 2.4GHz radio system, you just switch on and drive. There are no channels or frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. The TQ's ergonomic design is comfortable for all-day driving, and its sleek lines are enhanced by an internal antenna that is impervious to damage. To customize the controls, the transmitter's factory servo directions can be easily reversed through the simple programming system.

Sealed Electronics Extend Your Driving Fun

Traxxas shocked enthusiasts with the release of our exclusive watertight, sealed electronics in the E-Maxx that provided the freedom to drive where you want to drive through water, mud, snow, and other wet-running conditions that wouldn't have been possible before. Now the Traxxas Bandit is Ready-To-Race® with this waterproof technology. The new XL-5 electronic speed control and the mini receiver are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom go places you might not have thought possible. It opens up a whole new world of adventure and fun. Wet muddy tracks are no problem for the Bandit.

A System of Power
Being faster is more fun! Bandit's performance comes from a system of components that are engineered to work together for efficient operation and high-output performance. The Titan® 12T 550 modified motor is designed for brutal mod-motor power with virtually maintenance-free operation and long-lasting performance. The Titan's integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through the motor to keep temperatures down. Airflow is routed through cooling passages molded into the motor plate. A cooler running motor equates to faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life.

The waterproof XL-5 Electronic Speed Control tames the Titan 12T with high current handling, EZ-Set® one-button setup, and smooth, high-frequency control. Three drive profiles, low voltage detection for compatibility with 2-cell LiPo battery packs, thermal shutdown protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance are all included features you might expect to only be available on an expensive replacement ESC. The XL-5 is the first electronic speed control equipped with the patent-pending Training Mode™ that limits full-throttle power to 50%. This allows young or new drivers to safely develop their control skills before unlocking full power to the Titan 12T motor. Bandit is perfect for drivers of any age and skill level. Only Traxxas has it.


The quest for ultimate speed began with the battery connector. As today's batteries store more and more energy inside their cells, traditional battery connectors became a roadblock, unable to deliver all the energy the battery is capable of outputting. The new Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for unrestricted current flow.

Engineered for Performance
The Bandit is fully loaded with engineered performance features such as the advanced Revo-Spec Torque-Control slipper clutch. The patent-pending design allows precise adjustment and delivers smooth, consistent traction control. The durable, fiber-composite chassis is designed for exceptional rigidity, and offers an inline battery position for a low polar moment of inertia. That's engineering speak that translates into nimble handling and lightening-fast response. The low-profile "lay-down" steering servo mounting system further enhances the Bandit's already low CG design. Bandit offers superior stability and cornering thanks to its centered kingpin and live axle front suspension. Transmitting the power to the wheels is an efficient 3-gear variable-ratio transmission, topped off with sealed ball bearings and smooth-running telescoping driveshafts. In addition to those advanced features, the factory-installed planetary differential is Traxxas-Tough™ with hardened steel gears that never need adjusting! Perfect for long-lasting, all-day fun.

The Bandit is 100% Ready-To-Race® right out of the box with the TQ™ 2.4GHz 2-channel radio system, waterproof XL-5 electronic speed control and Titan 12T motor. Just take the Bandit out of the box, charge up a battery, and drive!

Only Traxxas could put this kind of performance, innovation, and overall value into a Ready-To-Race®package that delivers the satisfaction you expect from a high-performance electric buggy. Speed, ruggedness, and stunning looks elevate Bandit far above the ordinary. Traxxas' forward thinking and "no-nonsense" approach brings you the most performance for your R/C investment. Bandit is more than just fun to drive. It's easy to own, too, with legendary durability, low-maintenance design, and unmatched parts support and one-on-one service from either Traxxas or a network of thousands of hobby stores worldwide. On and off the road, at the track or in your backyard, the new Bandit is the ultimate Extreme Sports Buggy™ made for the driver who wants to experience max speed and all-out buggy fun.

Anaconda 2.2" Tires (sold separately)
If your favorite place to race is an asphalt jungle, transform your Bandit into an ultimate street machine with available Anaconda 2.2" street treads. These sticky, high-traction tires are made for aggressive handling on paved surfaces. The proven Anaconda design features large tread blocks that provide incredible grip and long-wearing performance. Buy them pre-glued and ready to install for instant on-road action. With Bandit's amazing 35+mph performance, you'll have the on-road touring crowd headed back to the workbench to try and figure out how to catch you.

Essentially all you need to fly our RC planes is an open field.

RC airplanes that are electrically powered have several advantages over nitro RC planes.. They are clean running, make very little noise and are easier to operate than Nitro RC airplanes. Electric aircrafts don’t require messy fuel, glow plugs or engine adjustments. Just charge your batteries, connect the wires properly and your electric RC plane will work without hassle.
