Default Redcat RC? Anyone heard?

So my band was playing a show in PA this weekend. Before the show I took a walk around town and found a small RC shop.

They mostly stocked models by a company called Redcat. Has anyone heard of this company? There stuff looked decent.



Thanks!
Jon

I have seen them a few times. The top of the line 1/8th scale stuff seems to be high quality, but all of the 10th stuff looked pretty cheap to me. I have only seen the 8th scale buggies run.

It is basically junk. I've seen lots of them come through the door at the shop here, from Ebay, very poor quality, terrible support and bad manuals.

They are chinese knock offs pushed through Pheonix,Az USA and sold to various locations. No offense but if you got the money buy a mainline product that had readily replacement parts.
