Here at Helion™ we have upped the ante on excitement, speed, and performance with the Invictus 10 MT Monster Truck. With an unprecedented set of features, performance, and value, the Helion Invictus 10MT is the next generation of 4×4 1/10th scale Monster Trucks. Our Helion R/C design engineers optimized the best components from the Dominus platform as well as improved upon all other aspects in the creation of the High Ground Clearance Monster Truck platform you see in this box. This truck was built for the latest generation of bashers and R/C enthusiasts.

The use of rubber sealed and ball bearing supported steel gear differentials mated with a robust shaft based drivetrain, reduces maintenance requirements all while improving efficiency and performance without compromising value. With no need for crystals the included 2.4 GHz radio technology of the Invictus MT allows R/C bashers and enthusiasts to enjoy using their trucks alongside one another instead of worrying about conflicting frequencies or needing additional crystals. Now with a new 45A Radient Reaktor 3500kV waterproof brushless system and 1800mAh 8-Cell NiMH battery included, the Invictus MT is ready to impress with out of the box speeds topping 30mph!

    I bought one and it was fun for about 12 packs (after the took a month to replace the esc with a lower amp rated one). Then on my 13 or 14 pack the SOFT BRASS pinion and SOFT spur just shredded for no reason. I had checked my mesh screw and it was tight like always and the motor had not moved. However it was not coverd via the warranty so I had to buy a slipper and new rrp pinion( the helion brass I could bend w/my fingers, & the rrp was cheaper) and that brings it to $343. Then the slipper was clicking so I took it to my Hobbytown and they basically said pay us(probably $100+) to fix it with sock parts or get out(that a story for a Hobbytown review though). In short, the warranty does not cover parts for 90 days, just electronics. NOWHERE in the warranty paper does it say that but the techs do, they claim if a part breaks in your first 2 packs then it’s covered, but no where in the paper does it say that. The driveline is weak, and the 2 pole 540 size motor simply does not have the torque for a 5&1/2lb+ vehicle. Needless to say, don’t buy it!
