The toy is well built and a nice concept, but the main flaw is the WiFi range. The max distance is about 7 to 8 meters (25 ft), even without any obstacles. Beyond that, I'm always loosing control (without warning, as you don't have any signal strength indication). Both with my iPad 2 and iPhone 4S.

The toy creates its own ad-hoc wifi. This is useful where there's no network. But when you have one, eg at your home, it's a pity you cannot use it for a better range.

As it is almost impossible to control the tank in another room or a bit far from you, it loses it's interest. Same for sound : when it's a few meters from you, a larsen feedback prevents you to use sound. At a longer distance, you are disconnected...

This rover is a cool toy for any boy, man and most girls, how ever I'm not impressed with a few things. 1. The batteries seem to drain quickly so could be costly to play, for the price "originally" $150 it really should've came with an integrated rechargeable battery and charger. 2.The quality of the camera is not that good but I guess it gets the job done. 3. Wifi range is an issue, it creates it's own wifi signal that you connect to and it's very limited and usually goes out when driven into a different room from the one you're controlling it from "isn't that the whole idea is to be able to drive it using FPV (first person view)"?? I thank an added option of being controlled using wifi via your home router would've gave it a much better signal thus making it possible to drive it around the entire floor of your home from one place. And 4. I don't care for the controller configuration in the app, would be very easy for them to have another option to control it like a cross hair for your thumb and you can slide your thumb up/down and left/right all simultaneously to control the movement. Have'n pointed out all the "what I think should've been different" about this rover I still like it and definitely recommend it. I do however understand there is a rover 2.0 that is available now that offers a better wifi, better camera and other features so you're probably better off buying the new and improved model but I'm sure the price will reflect that as well...

We got the ihelicopter, the little monster truck and this spy tank to use with the various iPads/iphones in the house. This one is by far the easiest to set up and a use. I love that it has an iPad specific app (instead of just an iPhone app that you can put on the iPad). The kids enjoy it a lot. Two things that would make it better 1. The ability to record video, not just take still shots and 2. The ability to move the camera to different angles. The way it is now, you pretty much see the floor and the bottom of everything. That's good for navigation, but if you're "spying" on something, it would be nice to have the ability to look up.

Lots of fun though.

I bought this product for my son as a present and when I received it, the box was all banged up. I put batteries in it to make sure it worked before I gave it to him because there is nothing worse than giving a child a broken toy! I put the batteries in, downloaded the app and the Rover didn't work. I tried a couple different versions of the app, and even on several different apple products since it said in the instructions that it worked on both iphones and ipads. Still no luck! I contacted the owner and they refused to let me return it. When I buy something I expect it to work! I am a single mom, working full time and attending the UW full time. I would not recommend buying from this seller. I should have done more research when buying this product. Hope you other consumers do, and hope this helps!!

The toy was purchased directly from Brookstone. Base on description and photo, looks as one of the most attractive in the category (taking into account asked price). But when I have received it, I have found same problems, which already was described in one of the reviews below - short operation range (6-7 meters only), low quality of sound. In addition, it's rather noisy to be a "spy tank" After about two weeks of light use it is fails - lost connection with controlling device (I have tried both iPhone and iPad). I have replaced batteries, reset toy, re-connect it several times with no sucsess. No warranty outside USA (Brookstone is rather fair here, they have put notification to the on-site description and manual), so, you will think twice before purchase, I would't recommend it. Now mine tank goes to garbage...

Greetings everyone,

I am writing this review because I've seen a number of unfair critiques regarding this product. I received this as a free gift from someone so that I could use it to entertain my nephew. A lot of people are complaining about the remote distance being too short. Granted, the manufacturer states that one could theoretically use this up to 200 feet without any walls or objects to disrupt the signal. This number is determined under the most ideal circumstances, which does not reflect the reality of the average household. I notice, with walls, and various other objects, that I generally get about 50-60 feet of range when I am using the rover. By the standard of this being a toy for children, I count this be an excellent length.

It is not a military grade drone that can remotely travel hundreds of miles; it is a toy that has a reasonable range. It is fun and amusing to use, while simple enough for even children to be entertained. I'd encourage anyone to buy this product as long as they can understand that there is a difference between the theoretically world and practical reality.

Enjoy.
