Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Offroad Car for 10 Year Old I bought this as a Christmas present for my 10 year old who had asked for his first radio controlled car. With such a choice I managed to nail him down to an Offroad style vehicle, which I was pleased to hear as this would be equipped with big tyres and bumpers to prevent damage! I looked at others both more and less expensive but settled on this, as the price offered more features than cheaper models but wasn't as technical as more expensive ones (as a first RC car he literally wants to be able to make it go forward and backwards and left and right without being so fast that he can't control it). Well it does what it says on the tin and then some. This is a great vehicle which seems to be capable of anything. The manual says it goes about 5mph and that seems about right. It also says it can't be driven on grass but it definitely can, provided it's not wet otherwise the vehicle just wheel spins. It easily climbs up and down kerbs and because it doesn't go too fast it doesn't get damaged and the big tyres absorb most of the impacts and provide great ground clearance for rocks, etc. Took it to a shingle beach yesterday and it coped easily with rocks and drops its own size. As for charging, the manual says the first two charges should be for 2 hours and thereafter each charge should take about 45 mins. There is a handy light on the charger which is red when charging the flat battery pack for the car itself (the controller takes AA batteries) and which turns green when the battery is charged. It's currently taking about 40 minutes to recharge my sons and he got a full hour of use at the beach, which is another massive plus point for this model. All in all spectacularly good value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price Bought 2 of these at £49.99 each for my sons Xmas presents. Great fun and pretty sturdy. Really good at crawling over some large rocks and fairly easy to control, even for my 5 year old.

Can you use more than at once? I.e. Set different frequencies?

The use of the 2.4GHz frequency on the remote allows multiple vehicles to be raced simultaneously without the risk of radio interference.
