Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my 4 year old son. I don't have a lot of experience with RC cars, so I looked up reviews online to try to find a good overall car and came across this one.
Pros -This RC car is sturdy and has no problems driving over "rough" terrain. Indoors, it has no issues going over carpet. As to be expected, it tends to slide around on my hardwood floors, which I enjoy. -Nice, big knobby tires. -Range never seemed to be an issue with me. Although I didn't test it, I never experienced any issues with the signal dropping out.
Cons -I would have preferred to have the RC car operate off a rechargeable battery pack instead of batteries, so you have to factor in the cost of batteries when purchasing this.
I like the looks of this car. It drives decent. My 3 and 4 yr old caught right on. It goes over rough terrain pretty well. It's not super fast which is ok by me being that they are my kids first RC vehicle. My biggest complaint is that it doesn't have a rechargeable battery. It takes 8 AAs plus 3 AAAs for the remote which will get expensive to replace. I realize this was not advertised as rechargeable, I just think the maker could make a big improvement by changing this.
This IS a toy, make no mistake. That said, it's pretty amazing for what it can do. If you're just looking for a cheap intro to crawlers this is a reasonable start. No proportional steering/throttle, so lots of back/forth positioning to tackle terrain. Aside from that it seems sturdy enough and powerful enough to take on some fairly tough courses.
