Tesla Cybertruck R/C Pickups Are Really Cool And Cheap To Build

Offbeat

If the Tesla Cybertruck impressed you greatly but you’re not willing to wait until 2021 to get one or you don’t really believe it’s going to happen, you can always get your fix right now with a remote controlled scale model.

There are many ways to build a Tesla Cybertruck toy pickup, but one of the easiest ways to do so is to use the chassis of a Power Wheels car and then marry it with a DYI body kit. The folks from FliteTest show us one of the easiest ways to craft the Cybertruck’s unusual body – using white foam.

This material is very easy to shape and also offers the structural rigidity necessary to get a sturdy Tesla Cybertruck R/C vehicle.

As you’ll see in the video, the guys did not stop at making a Power Wheels-based Cybertruck – they also used a more professional Traxxas R/C car as a basis. That particular Cybertruck is able to reach speeds of up to 60 mph (96 km/h) which is insane for an R/C vehicle.

In the end they built three Tesla Cybertruck toy pickups that look pretty realistic, especially in a natural environment where their scale flies under the radar and seem to be quite fun to play with.

A special mention goes to the Power Wheels Cybertruck because it’s an electric vehicle just like the real-life pickup. Don’t worry: if you’re not as good with handiwork as these guys, you’ll find plenty of Cybertruck kits on eBay and other similar websites.
