The 2012 Truck of the Year award-winning Actros series is the flagship of the world's leading truck manufacturer Daimler of Germany. This is a highly accurate R/C assembly kit of the single axle rear-wheel drive Actros 1851 GigaSpace, which runs on a 12.8-liter 6-cylinder turbo-charged engine capable of 510hp. One look at the splendidly-detailed interior and auxiliary equipment such as air tanks will confirm that the body features replica-quality realism, which is added to by metal transfers depicting emblems and numerous metal-plated parts. The chassis is built not only for durability - it uses aluminum side channels with resin cross member - but also for drivability - power from the front-mounted motor is transmitted via propeller shaft to the rear axle and built-in differential gears guarantee smooth cornering. Gear changes can be made via a separately-sold transmitter. Heighten the realism of your model yet further with separately-available trailers that can be tethered to the Actros by its coupler and make the model over a meter in length!
Realistic Lights, Sounds, and Vibration
Multi-Function Control Unit (MFC-01) (included for Japanese market only) offers light, sound, and vibration operation to accompany your R/C truck experience. Engine sounds have been digitally recorded from the actual truck, and together with air horn, gear shifting, and many other realistic sounds, give you the feeling that you are driving the real thing! Headlights, brake lights, fog lamp, hazard lights and turn signal operations are also at your fingertips.
6 Types of Semi-Trailer Separately Available
6 types of trailer including semi-trailer, tank-trailer, and pole-trailer, are currently available. Attach any one of them via the coupler on the Mercedes-Benz Actros 1851 GigaSpace to create an exciting combination over a meter in length.
