Painted first layer of grey acrylic paint on my Orlandoo track. Probably would take a week to completed the paints/airbrushing works.

Latest track updates: LEDs lighting added for night track adventures
I've added strips of leds on the ceiling inside the caves and also around the rocky arch structure to make the track more enjoyable to drive and view around at night/in the dark for rock crawling activity indoor. Today i inviteda friend around to test around my new track, he's on hummer while i'm on my Jeep as usual. Had lots of fun climbing over lots of artificial rubbles and rocks. Glad i build this track, had super awesome time with it, i need to buy more Orlandoos soon!

After stumbling on this thread I was impress with this tiny scale crawler. Read about it on several forums and watched a ton of Youtube videos I decided to order on for myself. I should be here is a few days I can't wait. I ordered the Orlandoo Hunter Mitsubishi Pajero 1/32

I'm sure you're going to love it, the details and the size is very tempting and it will definately helps to fill some gap of your time crawling everywhere you want, having a portable track makes it a plus. Btw share your Pajero once it arrives in your hands.

Did some more work on the Pajero this evening, it's now a roller.



Frame together with the front diff mounted



Rear diff mounted and tires installed



For now I have the servo mounted on the diff but will probably end up doing the mod where you mount it to the front of the frame with the servo standing on end



Need to install the electronics then I can take it for a test drive.

My biggest issue with this step was that in making the drive shafts I managed to break off 1 of the little post on 2 different little square blocks. Thought about pinning it but I didn't have a drill bit small enough to get the job done. Ordered the driveshaft tree so hopefully it will hold together until it arrives.

Put the electronics in today, sure not a lot of room in there. Ended up leaving the rx n it's case and mounting the esc to it. I have the smallest rx that Futaba makes so it's still pretty big. I'm using a Futaba 4PL for the tx, which is over kill for this little car. I'm thinking that I want a dedicated tx/rx. 3ch should be fine I don't see myself putting the sound module in.

What are you using for a radio for your Orlandoo?

Great to see your Pajero arrived and assembled. I'm using affordable FlySky GT3B radio unit that have almost the same receiver size as your. I'm remove the case and solder the connection behind the receiver PCB board to make it compact. I've put the receiver beside the motor gear case which have huge space rather than putting on top and great Center Gravity (CG) point. I've use thinner wires and trim overall wire short to reduce the weight. The all the electronics i placed at the base of the chassis to get lower CG for excellent climbing and reduce tilting problem when crawling. I didn't use the rear plastic deck because it caused much problem with the height CG placement and ease to fit battery. So the result my CG is lower and improve stability as shown attachment below photos:
