Fun? – Wired Remote Controlled Crane Lift Reviews

posted by lkroland on 11/30/2012 Certified Owner

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)
Other:
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...
