  • fun $20 radio control car for the kids

    just got back from a few days away in carins with the family today

    while there i bought a little r/c car my for mister 3

    bought it from "wow sight and sound" and was just $20

    its not much bigger then a "hot wheels" car and it comes inside a plastic coke can, but it doesnt have coke written on it though

    however, it takes about a minute to charge and we get about 20 minutes run time from it, and runs on 2 x AA batteries and 27Mhz

    the headlights come on when going forward and the tail lights come on when going in reverse

    its made by some lot called

    shen qi wei

    i had a google and the closest i can find is this

    http://www.raidentech.com/shqiweimirec5.html


    i can assure you, i have had a ball with it too, and mister 3 and i have fun sharing it

    it also comes inside under the lid with 4 x traffic cones (orange witches hats) so you can practice your driving skills and its pretty quick too and you can manually adjust the trim of the steering manually under the car, theres a small trim lever to get it going straight, and get it going fast enough round corners and you will flip it as well

    great fun!

        Why not get them a flying truck, also $20 (plus shipping):





        A little more expensive, but these are also cool, lots of detail:

        Helicopters are much more fun though.

            Nice find

            20 minutes from 1 minute charge is bloody fantastic! What's the steering like? Is it proportional, or full left/full right? Hopefully not the ol' it steers left when you reverse type of thing...

                On the ones I've seen, steering isn't proportional.

                  nope, no proportional steering here, just lock left/right and full bore forward/reverse

                  cant expect too much for $20
                  great fun though

                  my son just broke the aerial that plugs in to the transmitter, at the base, however with my 60 watt soldering iron i reckon i can solder it back together

                  sweet, you will enjoy it.
                  be careful of the aerial that screws in to the transmitter

                  if you stick a finger on it while using the car, it will block the signal from the transmitter till you take your finger off the aerial again. by blocking the signal, the car does nothing at all no matter how close you stand to it

                    i just soldered up the aerial and the car is going again but the range is bugger all now, no more then a few meters

                    but, mister 3 did accidentally stand on it

                    the tyres fell off the rims and i put them back on and its still going so its quite sturdy
