Eachine EC30 Review
The Eachine EC30 is a new radio controlled 1/14 scale 4wd buggy and sold exclusively by Banggood. This buggy is manufactured by Haiboxing (HBX) which are renowned for being some of the most durable cars out and this new model continues that tradition given it borrows heavily from the hugely popular 16889 range. In this review we'll look closely at the car, and it's performance and compare both to the car it borrows the parts off and the ones it competes against - the legendary WLToys 144001.
As I've mentioned on a number of occasions, Eachine is merely a shadow or house brand for Banggood, the quality of the car the offer depends on the manufacturer. The good news is that with the Eachine EC30 as reviewed here, the manufacturer is Haiboxing. As you'll see in my Master RC Car Comparison, the HBX cars rate highly because of their extreme durability, the thoughtful powertrain and driveline, and value for money in general. This car specifically borrows from the 16889 and SG1602 trucks but also brings a number of improvements which make this a solid offering.
I want this review to be a standalone so my comparisons to other cars are merely to help you understand this one better and why it may or may not be suitable for you.
