It’s no secret we’re all hopelessly in love with the Land Rover Defender. Well, now is your opportunity to own one of these off-road beasts for yourself. The catch? You’ll just have to settle for a 1/10 scale RC model. I mean, could be worse right?

Developed by Traxxas, this miniature RC model does more than just tear up the local asphalt on your driveway. Here, we have a completely off-road capable vehicle that can ford rivers, shred through backcountry trails, even rock climb – within reason of course. It’s innovative portal axles provide significant ground clearance and eliminate chassis torque twist, it’s locking differentials work remotely from the transmitter, and it’s powered by a formidable 21T Titan 500 motor that accepts s6 or 7-cell NiMH or 2 or 3-cell LiPo batteries. Additionally, it’s decked out in waterproof electronics and features a highly detailed and rugged Defender body with a fully functional spare tire. Available now.

Purchase: $450
