Too busy to take your Can Am Defender out for a spin this weekend? That’s where remote control side by sides come to save the fun!
Remote control cars are a great way to divert your kids away from smart phones and develop motor skills. You don’t have to be 5 years old to enjoy ripping around a remote control SxS, and luckily there are plenty of options to choose from!
Here are some of our favorites:
Let’s go in-depth on each of these choices to compare/contrast your options and help you choose the best one for your kids:
BEZGAR produces some of the most-sold remote control cars on the market today, and with their reasonable price and thousands of 4 and 5 star ratings this is undeniably one of the best choices.
Recommended for ages 8+, the TB142's powerful brushed motor and top speed of 20 km/h allows for remote operation from distances of up to 50 meters. Easily plug and charge this beast with USB to keep the fun going all day long!
Currently priced around $21, this DoDoMagxanadu remot control RC side by side would be hard not to purchase for your kids. With 2 x 3.7V 500 mAh rechargable batteryies included, this toy also comes with a well-made storage box to keep everything organized. Constructed with ABS plastic and environmentally-friendly spray paint, it's a durable and powerful option that isn't lacking in the budget category.
This badass ARRMA RC UTV comes looking mean and ready to blast around the block with it's full roll cage and military-inspired wheels. This particular RC side by side has a long wheel base and wide-track suspension for better handling. Featuring a Spektrum 65 brushless motor capable of reaching speeds of up to 60+ mph, this is our quality pick for those looking for an extra-performance driven remote control UTV.
For around 50 bucks, this is one of the most top-rated RC trucks on the market. Designed at a 1:12 scale of the real deal, this SxS is famous for its beefy suspension and ability to climb.
With a charging time of just 30 minutes, plug this beast into USB and keep the fun happening with non-slip tires and an easy to control design. The DOUBLE E focuses on superior quality which is why it's one of our top choices.
With its 390 motor and 7.4V batteries, the HAIBOXING provides around 40 minutes of playtime before charging and can reach speeds of up to 38km/h. No terrain is impossible to navigate with this realistically designed RC SxS, and this particular model comes with some unique design features like LED lights, a serviceable spare wheel, and waterproof electronics. Pick one of these up off of Amazon for around $112 and take advantage of the fact that spare parts can also be easily purchased off of Amazon as well.
The Axial Yeti Jr. Can-Am Maverick might actually be our top choice because of how realistic the design is. One of the coolest parts about the Axial Yeti is its suspension system that perfectly emulates that of a real Can-Am Maverick X3 side by side including independent front suspension, machined aluminum CVDs, and high-speed stability that outperforms the competition in rough terrain. This bad boy comes with everything needed to rally, so all you have to do is wait for it to arrive! This is definitely the one I'd buy for my kid!
TEMI provides another ridiculously low-priced RC UTV that features a large-sized remote and super suspension for thrashing through terrain. Running on a wireless connection of 2.4 Ghz, the TEMI RC comes with everything you and your kids need to have a blast, including two rechargeable batteries, and USB charging cable, and even an anti-collision bumper that helps prevent unintentional damage. This rock crawler's battery also has an auto power-off function that will power the batteries off to prevent excessive discharge.
The BlueJay might be the coolest looking UTVs on the planet. For 50 bucks this badass mobile can run up for 70 minutes at a time with a control distance of up to 50 meters. Included with this mobile are 2 batteries, LED headlights, and a whole ton of fun!
It all depends on the age and ability of the toddler. I’d recommend against buying a super fast remote control car for the young ones because I’ve seen my friend’s kids crash into themselves when driving off of jumps!
