    – I HAVE NOT COMPLETED THE BUILD YET… But I love this project, I’m about halfway done with the printing and a a little behind in the build and so far this has been the most enjoyable project I have done with my printer (PRUSA mk3s) including the LACK enclosure and the orginal printer build… The prints are coming out beautifully (I am using Prusament not the recommended filament), I have had a few bed adhesion layers (my bed is old so this isn’t new for me… ) but overall this has been an enjoyable and almost frustration free build. I don’t own any RC vehicles but this looked too cool to not try… I’m glad I did…. Only recommendation would be for 3D sets to put together a part kit, I would have spent extra to buy the parts needed (non-printed that is) all at once from you to complete this build, but maybe that’s just because RC parts /components are all new to me….

    Anyway great design can’t wait to do the mini-land rover next.

    Just finished this build recently. Never really had much experience with RC, but figured it out with some web searches. I used the print ready plates and printed on my Prusa MK3S. I wish there was more info on the connectors and electronics, and maybe offer the screw sets as an added purchase option as it took a while to order and took a very long time to get through Aliexpress. All other parts came fairly quickly. My 10 year old really enjoyed helping (I recommend a cordless screwdriver with long magnetic bits). And we had fun setting up obstacles and driving the Rancher through them. I really appreciate the details and functional doors, hood and trunk πŸ˜‰

    After about 3 weeks of printing and building, my Rancher now drives flawlessly through the terrain.
    The design is impressive and executed with attention to detail, very stable and functional.
    The assembly instructions are among the best I’ve ever seen, assembly is quite easy and I had a lot of fun.
    I’m looking forward to building the other models and I’m curious to see what new projects -besides the buggy- the 3dsets team will surprise us with.
