This thing seems to be able to take a beating, which is good as I have trouble avoiding table legs and walls. ;-)
The wheels are solid plastic with a very thin rubber tire. Seems more as if to give the impression of rubber tires than to give traction as they spin easily on laquered hardwood floors. (Gives good grip on carpets, though) Recharge takes about 5minutes, and gives nearly 10 minutes of fun. Run it forwards, then quickly throw it into reverse and watch it spin on smooth floors. Even better, this thing takes 'handbrake turns' without a handbrake ;-) The front lights activating while driving forwards is nice, even if it results in shorter driving time(the 'nearly 10 minutes' is when driving almost as much in reverse as forwards) I probably need to try filming it as it skids around the floor... Or stick on my mini camand take it for a spin...
End score? I know of a nephew who will love this. As long as his daddy(my brother) doesn't monopolize it...
This is a well built R/C car overall, has a solid feel, headlights a surprisingly nice touch, also shows when the batteries are about to quit. Charges from the remote in just a few minutes, runs almost ten minutes.
It's a lot smaller than we expected, but it just goes to show good things do come in small packages !!!
Overall, a great little R/C car that's fun to drive.
- The car is charged by the remote. - Fair run time per charge: 5-10 mins - About five minutes to charge. - Good range. - 4 x AA batteries for quite a long time. (Considering they charge and control the car.)
- Odd packaging, the car is screwed into the box.
If you have 15 bucks to spend and want a fun little remote control car, this is the way to go!
Ratio of charging time to the actual running time is astonishing. Runs on carpet. Easy to control. Very solid packaging sustainable to any mailing conditions and looks very good as a small present.
Bought this car for my 5 years old daughter. She just loves it, because it is very easy to control and it runs on almost any surface including other toys. I was very surprised that it takes around 5 minutes to charge a car from the AA batteries while the running time is at least 10 minutes.
It is a great toy! It really works fine, quality of building is fine. There are no any defects. My child have played the car for a month without any problems. There is a cool plastic box with a transparent cover, so you can keep the car easy.
So I guees it is a good toy and if you find the price reasonable you probably have to buy it.
