Compact and ready to rage, the 4WD 1/24-scale Roost™ Desert Buggy doesn’t mess around whenever its wheels are spinning. Equipped with a rugged 4WD drivetrain and potent micro motor, the Roost simply won’t quit until you’ve reached maximum calamity. The Roost handles just like a real desert buggy and even looks the part thanks to a multi-panel screened body and roll cage. Best of all, an included USB charger gives you the convenience of being able to charge the included 220mAH Ni-MH driving battery nearly anywhere you can find a USB port. Plus, a bottom loading battery compartment means you’ll never need to remove the body and spoiler to access the battery after you’ve reached empty.
