Fun to put together but fun ends there
on January 13, 2012
Took me about three hours to put together, you will need a size 1 Phillips screw driver for the kit. Not all screw drivers are the same size so make sure you have the right one or you will end up striping screws. It was very easy to put together, design is very simple. My thought on it was this was a Mechanical Engineer one upping an Electrical Engineer, there is no real "electronics" in the toy. Pretty much you push the remote stick forward and connect the power to the motor (ie motor goes forward) and you push the remote stick backward and the power is reversed to the motor (ie the motor goes backward). The jaws really cannot hold anything with much weight or they will break, so the box that comes with it is about it. I broke a piece connecting the treads changing between the models, the first time I was changing them. This was a gift from my wish list, but it felt like the person paid $35-50 for me to put together a $10 dollar store toy.
My four year old niece plays with the finished toy for about 2 minutes before getting board. It is a wired remote with about 6 foot of cord between the model and the remote.
Easy to put together (with right sized tools)
Great learning toy for simple remote controlled car type toy
Directions were easy to follow
Comes with cardboard box to lift and move
Creeps my cats out
This is not a robot it is a fancy remote controlled car
Wired remote with about 6 foot of cord
No battery pack on the device all batteries are in the remote
No real "electronics" in the toy
After being build it is a "cheap" toy that cannot handle much more weight then a very small cardbord box (it comes with)
Easy to break tread attachments
There are some small parts are a pain to detach and clean.
Overall I enjoyed building the toy but now I do not know what to do with it.
