The Diatone (SNT) Y60 3005 is an absolute mouthful of a name but this is a super tiny 1/64 scale 4wd Crawler RC truck that I have reviewed. The version I have reviewed has a built in First Person View (FPV) camera that transmits the image to a set of goggles that gives you a view from the car in real time. The amount of technology crammed into this tiny hotwheel-sized cars is just crazy and I hope to give you a full feel for it in the review.
If you haven't been involved with quadcopters before you probably won't know the brand "Diatone" but if you have you will know they are one of the bigger and well-supported brands that have become very popular due to the balance of quality and performance they have struck plus have the most aggressive product development schedule I've ever come across. They have partially re-branded to "SNT" as they start making consumer RC cars, working exclusively on the micro (1/64) scale which is roughly the size of a hotwheels car. I've reviewed 2 generations of these in the Q33 buggy and the Q25 240z replica which have both shown substantial improvements over the models they replace. Both are bult for speed but the weight and location of the FPV camera lets down the experience. As you'll see in this review the Y60 truck is built to crawl slowly over bigger obstacles and so is much better suited to FPV.
The Diatone / SNT / JustAir Q25 Is a tiny RC car that is smaller than a matchbox and yet still has proportional steering, throttle and even front suspension. It is a follow up from the Diatone Q33 micro RC car released last year and offers a lot more features. It is available in regular version or FPV - a model with a small camera and video transmitter that send live first person view video back to goggles to immerse you in first person driving. Here I review the FPV version that includes everything you need to get running.
Last year Diatone, a well known brand in the quadcopter market, released their first RC car - the micro 1/76 scale Q33 that I reviewed here. As of September 2022 they have now released an update with a whole lot more features which build on the best micro RC car released so far. First of all just look at that body - the Datsun 240Z is my all time favourite classic so it's a pleasure to see it in tiny scale here, even if it is a caricature of the real thing. Before I get carried away though, lets see what is included:
