Mini-Z Lit - the baby mini z?

Post by 45tr0 »

Kyosho Mini Z Lit

:eek:
looks like yet another mini-z chassis!
they look to be what, 1/32? or just 1/24 sized mini-compacts?

looks interesting, to say the least!

I was excited about these at first till I found out they cost MORE than a Mini-Z. Gonna get one of those new Losi Buggies instead.

I've seen them on eBay already. I like the look but I don't think I'll be getting one.

It looks like it takes a special battery instead of AAA's. That could be a turn-off for some. I know I don't like having to have several different sets of batteries around. Heck there are 3 digital cameras in my house, 2 by one company, and they all take different special batteries.

If you are going to make an RC car based on another one have them use the same #$%@%$% batteries.

It comes with a charger, so I don't think you'll have any problems with that Bilbo.

If you think about it, these are 1/28th. Just the real life counterparts that are tiny in the first place.

I'm just in a grumbling mood today.

Yes it has a charger, but how many chargers do I have around my house.

1 for each digital camera battery type. (that's 3)
1 for the wife's Camcorder
1 AA NiMH charger (4 batteries at a time)
1 AA/AAA NiMH charger (2 batteries at a time)
1 AA/AAA NiMH charger (4 batteries at a time)
Plus the one for the old RC roadster I have (I'm not sure it still works)
Plus one of my cordless phones charges AA's
THen 1 each for mine and the wife's cell phone (2)
1 each for the PDA's (2)
1 each for the laptops (2)
1 for my satellite walkman (XM Radio is Cool)

That's 16 battery chargers/Adapters

Add that to the chargers for the ZipZaps, Bits, Clones, Micro Mosquito, Aero Ace (dead plane), super slick, etc. that are part of transmitters.
I'm sure I'm forgetting some others I have too. :?

I'm being overrun by battery chargers/AC Adapters. :eek:
