  • Fun?

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    - Simple to use for kids
    - Seems fun for the price paid
    - I prefer cable remotes because they're more reliable
    - Moves forward, turns (while reversing) and the crane lifts and goes down.

    Cons:

    - Quite small
    - Can't turn when moving forward (turns by locking one wheel when you reverse, which is quite clever)

    OtherThoughts:

    OK, I'm not sure how long this thing will be fun for the kids. I bought it for them so that I can rebuild it to a robot when they tire of it. And frankly as a robot platform it is VERY cheap compared to many alternatives.

    Bottomline:

    Cheap, probably not great quality... fun while it lasts...
