Default Best detailed first time kit

Like a crawler, or a semi. Something that Isn't to complex, but REALLY time consuming. For rainy days. 1/10th scale, and able to handle brushless would be nice.

Here’s a new to the States company I’ve been hearing about for awhile. Cross-RC. I’m not into the scaler/crawler scene. But stuff does look good. It’s on the pricey side.

That's a tough one to answer. Usually your first kit is the one that takes the longest. After that they are all pretty easy and fast. I got my first hobby grade RC when I was 15. A Tamiya Hotshot that took me 13 hours to assemble.
My Axial Wraith kit was fun and is probably the one that takes the longest to assemble along with the Axial Bomber.

The Tamiya Semi trucks aren't too complicated but will take some time to assemble. You can extend that with trailer kits, light kits and sound modules to install as well.

+1 on a Tamiya kit. I'm not sure about a semi, but they have several trucks that would be great initial kits:

A great first kit would be the 2016 Blackfoot or the Toyota FJ Cruiser SUV CC-01 kit.
