My nephew REALLY likes it but, oy!, is the video bad -- what they show in the online commercial is quite a bit clearer and contrasty than what we see in our actual unit. I think the infrared aspect blurs things a bit and its sensitivity is pretty low in any case. You can't read ANY writing thru the video, regardless of size of print, etc. Still, the video link is minimally serviceable (adequate for manuevering with a little bit of practice) and my nephew has a BIG time sitting in his "command center" and sending it out on "remote missions" using only the onboard video link. Seems fairly robust and sturdy so far.
Well, this one does. The range on the car is not huge, but it can go from room to room while the driver remains in place. Keep in mind this has a black & white 'monitor' in the glasses. Adjusting the glasses so that small children can see clearly into it is probably the only trouble you'll have. Once my daughter was able to view the 'monitor' successfully, it's amazing how well she could navigate tricky paths through rooms without being able to see the car.
As far as 'stealthness', our car is very quiet. In a quiet room, you'll hear it coming, but normal household noise covers it. Battery life is good too.
If you're hesitating to buy this toy figuring it can't do what it claims to, don't worry, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with it.

My stepson has head this for years and years. It sat in the closet until I found it. I thought it was a gimmick, until I started digging in the toy box and found the controller. Read morePublished 14 months ago by SirStinky
