Details

This is a new upgraded version of the full metal early version of German RC tank -Tiger I. The Taigen RC tanks are of the highest quality and are brand new to the market. What sets them apart from other tanks is the high level of detail and the strong metal components like gearbox, drive wheels, turret, barel and many more. The next great thing apart from its looks is the brand new radio equipment. This deadly machine comes with 2.4GHz transmitter receiver kit featuring many improvements compared to the old crystal based systems like extended range, no interference from fellow enthusiasts and precision steering. From now on you can have epic battles with as many radio controlled tanks as you wish.

The next very cool feature is the sound on this machine, the sound generator has 2 channels and can play 2 sounds simultaneously - in short you will hear the gun firing over the soundtrack of the engine adding to the authenticity of the model. Taigen tanks are available in different configurations but the ones we sell are the highest configuration with every possible option and upgrade included.

This beautifully made Tiger tank comes hand painted grey weathered finish and looks amazing. The attention to detail is stunning and not only is this a fully working model with sound effects, smoke and the ability to fire BBs, but it is sufficiently detailed to be used purely for display. Almost all of the components and features of this tank are made of metal, improving durability and realistic feel and appearance to your model. We think the pictures speak for themselves!

The pull ropes are made from real metal cable and have been carefully coloured to give a feel of authenticity. The caterpillar tracks are scaled down versions of what you would get on the real thing, fully metallic linkages that will form to the terrain and any obstacles in the tank's path. When you pick this tank up, everything about it says quality, for a start this is a faiirly hefty model, it feels robust, it feels right, you could say it's built like a tank!

So why not treat yourself to a piece of military history that's not only great to look at, but will give hours of fun as it growls and smokes its way around your garden or park, and where safe to do so can fire BBs at the target (included in the box) with a realistic recoiling action. RC tanks don't really come better than this!

The Tiger I comes complete with a hand-painted Grey Camo design and weathered finish. Below are some images showing the plastic and metal components of the tank before it is painted.

Tiger 1.. excellent Review by Andy
Delivery Speed

This arrived today and the much anticipated box opening took place.. On initial inspection the build quality not quite what I expected as far as metal parts, but good nonetheless. The instructions are not particularly detailed as to opening the thing to place the battery in position. Namely its not just a question of sliding the lever near the mudflap and lifting. You also have to disconnect the plastic pipes to the other exhaust parts. Also once the lid was open I found a small 2 pin connector adrift, with only one location it would possibly go, but the plug was too big. having seen a video of one of these open, I knew it was correct, but the only way to fit it was to shave a certain amount off all 4 sides of the plug..no mean feat with a nail file.. On further investigation it is apparently for a rear light that you can fit.. Overall though immensely pleased and would recommend.. (Posted on 03/11/2016)

just had a quick go with the tiger, as it is 9 30 on a Tuesday evening evening.
what can I say, absolutely brilliant. cant wait to get it outside for a proper run.
I ordered this on Sunday and it arrived on Tuesday, with superb packaging via an amazing courier service.
the tiger is bigger than I was expecting and heaver than I thought it would be, which all makes for a wonderful machine.
the quality is excellent apart from the tank commander but you don't buy a tank like this for the commander.
everything worked first time. the sound of the machine gun, engine, recoil and turret movement were loud and drowned out the TV hence only a quick go. don't want the wife to complain!!!
to say I am pleased is an understatement.
well worth the purchase price.
and a big thanks to nitrotek for a great service. (Posted on 03/02/2015)

Question:

I'm considering the Taigen Tiger 1 early version with the full metal upgrade. I'm still a little confused as to what exactly is fitted with regards to the recoil mechanisms. Ive seen so many different versions on youtube. for example, where the entire tank body recoils, where the barrel of the gun and tank body recoil and ones where only the gun barrel recoils. I'm looking for the most realistic option preferably with the barrel and a small amount of chassis recoil. Which does this model have. Thanks in advance.

    This tank does not have a dedicated recoiling turret. Only the overall tank recoil.

Hi, could you please tell me the range and speed of this tank , Thankyou. Regards. Mike

Answers:

  • Posted by The Hobbyworx on Sunday, 17 January 2016

    Hi, the range is around 25M. They are not fast as they are not built for speed. I don't have the exact figure but around 1-2 mph. Best thing would be to look on youtube for "taigen tank" and you will see some going.
