Description

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.

Posted by Steve, Monday, 23 October 2017 on

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.

Answers:

  • Posted by Sales 1 on Monday, 23 October 2017

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

Question:

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.

  1. This is the most up-to-date tank model.

    By Peter April 24, 2021

    This tank is a knockout! It has everything, even a recoiling barrel when you fire. A joy to operate. These guys got it safely to Canada without a hitch and in 10 days...very good seller. One thing though, the supplied battery charger won't work in North America, so you will have to buy one locally (220v and won't fit our wall plugs).

  2. A treat for myself

    By joe April 21, 2021

    I had a Heng Long and a couple of Tamiya full option tanks around 18 years ago, sold them and soon regretted it, so I thought it was time I treated myself I'd heard good things about Taigen so ordered a Tiger 1 early production full metal upgrade , I noted it was 12-50pm when the order went though so I wasn't expecting it to be delivered next day by was surprised when it turned up at my door the next day at 12-30pm great service from Nitrotek and what a great tank as well, initial impressions are it 's actually better than the Tamiya's at least the Tamiya's back then.
