The newly released details are not very exciting. The Ascender Suburban price will be $70 less than previous models, but will have a plastic transmission gears, plastic links, and more "features" that will keep me from buying one.

Pretty disappointing.

$279. Itís about price point. Unfortunately our hobby isnít it the best of shape. Sales have been down. Brands need things to sell to wider crowd. For the average weekend user just messing around the yard or park, probably be ok.


Theres a Facebook link on the Squids page. Looking at the comments most would agree that there disappointment about the changes.

I don't care what they changed I want one. Plus the new battery tray that holds full sized batteries is something these have needed from the get go. The description on Tower is a bit confusing, first it says that it comes with the Spektrum STX2 radio, then it says it comes with the Spektrum DX2E
