Traxxas was started in 1986 with an idea for what was at that time an entirely new concept for a fully assembled, hobby-class R/C car. This new car would have all the same benefits of a hobby-class kit such as replaceable parts, hop-ups, and a high-quality component radio system, however it would be fully assembled with a colorful body, right out of the box. Traxxas coined the term "Ready-To-Run" (RTR) to describe this new class. Since a fully assembled, ready-to-run car would appeal to the entry-level beginner, a toll-free customer support line was set up from day one to service an entirely new category of hobby consumer. At first, acceptance of the RTR concept was slow because traditional R/C kits had always been unassembled. Once people realized that a Traxxas RTR had the same performance and quality as the traditional R/C kits, only that they didn't have to build it, the ready-to-run car was a runaway hit! A kit version would still be offered for those who still wanted to have the building experience.
From the Manufacturer
Alias is a clean-sheet design that focuses on the performance and design elements that make flying and even learning to fly, fun. The first mission objective was durability. Alias is built around a unique molded-composite frame that is combined with clever high-tech construction to make it extremely light and virtually indestructible. Your flying fun goes on and on without worrying about breakage from crash damage. The next mission was performance. Fun always comes from having more power so Alias' motors have 50% more power than standard motors and when combined with the lightweight design and high-tech materials, Alias is lightning quick and ultra-responsive. A completely new flight control system was developed that provides unmatched 6-axis stability that works in the background without impacting performance and speed. It acts like a virtual spring that snaps Alias back to level controlled flight no matter what situation you find yourself in. New pilots can fly faster and perform aerobatic maneuvers sooner than they ever thought possible with Alias' unique flight control system. Alias is uniquely engineered to satisfy the needs of both new pilots who want to experience the fun of flying and experienced pilots who want a fun and relaxing way to sharpen their skills. Thoughtful design touches abound including the telemetry powered battery fuel gauge that provides visual and audible alerts when it's time to recharge the flight battery. Technology is utilized the right way to enhance performance, maximize durability, increase flight time and make Alias easy to fly. Alias model 6608 comes fully assembled and ready-to-fly in one of 4 fun colors. Included are a 650mAh LiPo flight battery, a high-output USB fast charger and four AAA batteries for the transmitter.

Unfortunately it has a serious issue with early motor failures, and no acknowledgment from the manufacturer or restitution.
This failure issue significantly raises the cost of operation of this machine, and parts are in scarce supply due to this issue.
When available the motors cost about $40.00 a set and the manufacturer recommends replacing all 4 upon even a single failure.
So should you buy this product ... YES ... but not until they resolve this motor issue.
3 days after receiving this item one of the motors went out, amazon was nice enough to give me partial refund so I could get new motors since they ran out of stock. I got 4 new motors and I have had to replace one every couple of days... you can call the company and they'll give you a new set as well but after that 1 free set they say it's because of normal wear and tear. I understand that, but when the first few days it is broken and then they go out once a week from then on.. it's silly. I do not crash it and I do know that it must be strenuous on the motors but it'd be nice if they lasted more than a few days.. I don't fly the thing all day everyday either so I don't know what the deal is.
Short story: LaTrax Alias is a PoS. Do NOT waste your money on one.
I contacted customer service about the motors by e-mail and received some very unprofessional and rather snarky treatment. Needless to say, this is the last time I will ever have anything to do with this company.
