Description

Details

The Taigen BB RC tanks are of the highest quality and are brand new to the market. What differentiates them from other RC tanks is the high level of detail and the strong metal components. This new updated version comes with 2.4GHz transmitter receiver kit. The radio system has many advantages 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.

This is the newest version with the following upgrades:

  • Full 360 degrees rotating turret
  • Newest 2.4Ghz radio system
  • Hobby hydro painting
  • Metal chassis
  • Steel gearset (3 in 1 steel gearset with bearing)
  • Metal drive and idler wheels and metal road wheels with rubber
  • Metal tracks
  • Metal suspension
  • Metal accessory parts
  • Metal turret with metal gun barrel
  • Metal machine gun light

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 themodel. Taigen tanks are available in different configurations but the ones we sell are the highest configuration with every possible option and upgrade included. This RC tank has been finished in a camouflage design, and is complete with paint effects that give the appearance of age and of seeing battle; it really is a high quality and superb looking model.

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 Many of the components and features of this RC tank are made of metal, giving durability and a more realistic feel and appearance to your model.We think the RC tanks pictures speak for themselves!

The Panzer RC tank comes complete with some additional accessories to add if you wish to your tank, such as a tank commander, fully painted and in uniform. 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 RC tanks path. This tank will please not only RC model fans, but militarily enthusiasts too.

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 Panzer IV comes complete with a hand-painted black and grey camo design. Below are some images showing the plastic and metal components of the tank before it is painted.

  1. Taigen Panzer IV Metal Pro Edition

    By PicaPete May 23, 2019

    This is the fourth Taigen tank I've bought from NitroTek and at first sight on opening the box I was disappointed. The online advertising from NitroTek states that this is the latest version of the tank in the winter camouflage used by the LAH Divison fighting around Kharkov, and granted only half the photos shown in the ad have this camo, the rest being in desert colours, I was disappointed to receive the one in desert colours.

    Overcoming the disappointment and after considering returning the tank I had a closer look at things and found a couple of very pleasant surprises. Firstly when fitting the main battery I found that the expected battery compartment screw down hatch wasn't there. Instead there was a release catch that released the entire upper hull (much prefer this system).

    With the top off I noticed the second big surprise. The internal electronics are the latest V2 version. This means there is now a separate sound card (with great sound effects) and with proportional digital control on more of the channels via an updated handset (including the smoke unit and the turret rotation).

    I'm now very pleased with the tank, but I can't understand why NitroTek are not making a feature out of the upgraded electronics in their advertising. Could it be they don't actually know? If they haven't looked in the box it would also explain the different camo.

    Great tank nonetheless!

  2. Nice tank, actual the highest quality in my collection

    By Peter May 21, 2015

    The Panzer IV was my third tank in scale 1/16, actual I have 5 of them- but this one has probably the highest quality. The paintjob is well done and the included RX-18 is of course better than the old Mhz controller. A really nice toy and I love to drive around with it- the turret is also a good platform to fit a GoPro on it to make nice onboard videos. Looks funny

  3. Excellent a great buy to get you started

    By Barry June 29, 2014

    A really great tank to get you kick started in the hobby of being a tanker.

    Great looking tank looks a bit just out of the factory for my liking but easy to repaint which I have done (just painted over with a black/brown ink shade to tone down)
    Recoil great
    Engine noise wow neighbours though I had a car in my house really loud.
    Smoke emitter very quiet (would like it to push out thicker smoke)
    Metal track great (but)

    Only has one down side the tracks do come off very easily I believe that this is an easy fix so not a major problem.

    Really hard to find accessories such as tank crew and parts..

    Easy tank to use very quick think it needs to be a bit slower great fun my four year old son had a go and thought it was great.

    Some of the adornments need painting the tank commander looks like he has something thrust from below which startled him and looks very sick could be dropsy ? have just repainted mine looks good.

    Great delivery from Nitroteck very quick
    Great prices hope they stay this way
    Staff very helpful if you have a problem
