Remote Control Subscription Box Review – August 2014

Remote Control Subscription Box Review - August

RC Subscription Box is a new monthly subscription box from HobbyTron that sends you a new Remote Controlled Helicopter, Car, Truck etc. each month. They may not have the most creative name, but it definitely seems like the have a good value!

Remote Control Subscription Box Review - August 2014 Phantom

Phantom RC Helicopter – Retail Value $85 (On sale for $29.95)

This is the bonus RC item with your first box. FYI – it requires 6 AA batteries that are not included.

Remote Control Subscription Box Review - August 2014 Hercules

Glow In the Dark Hercules Unbreakable 3.5CH RC Helicopter – Retail Value $129.95 (On Amazon for $54.95)

This is the regular part of the subscription, so I’m guessing you can expect to get one RC item per month after you first box. I’m very impressed with the value of this Helicopter, and it gets excellent reviews on Amazon! It’s also supposed to be pretty much unbreakable – which is great because my husband has never tried out RC copters before, so I’m guessing there will be some crash landings at first!

Verdict: I’m really impressed that we got everything in the box shipped to us for only $30! (And the shipping box is huge – I’m sure it cost a lot to mail it!). I think the value is great, and I’m happy that the curated item this month gets such great reviews.

  1. I need to get this RIGHT NOW for my husband

  2. Will you be updating the review after flying it? Those good reviews on the glow in the dark copter look a little sketchy, would like an honest opinion of this product and sub… it looks great, but those amazon reviews, I just can’t tell what’s real.

    • We tried it a little yesterday, and it’s impressive (I didn’t realize it lights up in addition to glowing in the dark). The “unbreakable” piece is up for debate since we crashed the copter into a wall and part of the wing blade broke. However they do include spare wing blades with the copter, so I guess the wings aren’t unbreakable but they give you extras to make up for it! Hope that helps! 🙂

      • Oh good, sounds good then, now I am more tempted to try out this sub and stock up on holiday gifts

      • It definitely seems like a good Holiday gift box – even if you just do one month the free gift is definitely giftable! 🙂

  3. This is the best subscription! I’ve been trying to think of someone I could gift it to for Christmas or a birthday.
